Now that the holiday season is officially here, I asked my friend Todd Burrier to do another guest blog. For those with health issues like diabetes which require them to exercise regularly and closely watch what they eat, this time of year can present problems.The weather is getting colder, so it becomes harder to get consistent exercise. We go to lots of social events where tables are loaded...

I've written about Dreamfields Pasta in the past, but during this second week of Diabetes Awareness Month, I wanted to mention them again. This is a fantastic product for anyone watching their carbohydrate intact, whether they are diabetic or not. You'll have some terrific health benefits, and I promise that you won't detect any difference in quality, texture, or taste :)When I first met with a...

Freedom with God

Yesterday, I had the chance to visit with a group of people attending a Diabetes Workshop at our local hospital. They were all looking for ways that they could improve their health despite dealing with this chronic illness. As you may know, I think bringing God into the situation is the missing key that many people forget. That goes for any situation, not just an illness.Today's three-minute...

Over the last couple of weeks, I've asked some friends to write something for my blog. I think it makes sense to hear someone else's voice from time to time, and I hope you'll appreciate it too. Today, I'm really happy to have a young friend of mine share his thoughts on exercise. Jeff studied sports medicine in college, and now works in the physical therapy field, helping people get themselves...

I was talking to a friend yesterday, and he was telling me how much his fiance likes lentils. Me too. In fact, lentils have become a staple in my diet, and I prepare them several times a week.They are a great source of fiber and protein, and the add a meaty texture to most dishes. They are also very low on the glycemic index, which means that your blood sugar will not spike after eating them....

Wordless Wednesday, and we were asked to post an image that best represents my biggest help in managing diabetes. This sunrise (and all the others) is it for me.To me, the fact that I can have a fresh start every day is my biggest encouragement. It doesn't matter how things went yesterday, when the sun comes up, we're all given a second chance. Whatever your issues may be, every day is a new...

That's right, a whole month dedicated to Diabetes Awareness. Did you know that by the end of today, 4,300 people in the United States will be diagnosed with diabetes? As I wrote about last week, the USA Today reported on 10/22/10 that the number of diabetes cases in the US will double, and perhaps triple by 2050. As many as one in three will have the disease!On Friday, I picked up a great book...

I've been attending some conferences down in Virginia the past few days and am glad to be able to sleep in my own bed tonight. I always enjoy traveling, but there's no place like home :) Although I don't usually read the USA Today newspaper, there's always plenty of them at hotels.So, this morning I picked one up on my way down to get some coffee, and on the front page was a huge article about...

A Very Good Day

Thanks for everyone who was praying for our Faith Fights Diabetes meeting this morning. To say that it was a success would be an understatement. I don't know how many people will ultimately sign up to help with this initiative, but there is no question in my mind that our message resonated with the nearly sixty people who came.The statistics are simply too hard to ignore. I talked about some...
