Jesus is the Light of the World

Featured Scripture: John 1:4-5 “In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” Extreme food behaviors and thoughts often make us feel ashamed and guilty. Keeping disordered eating “in the dark” of isolation and secrecy is a potentContinue Reading

Living The Fruit of the Spirit

Something significant has just begun in my life. I feel it in my spirit, mind and body. And God is both the initiator and manager of this “something”.

Inner beauty lasts – outer beauty fades!
