Yesterday I was watching television and noticing how many ads there are in regard to weight loss - exercise equipment, special low calorie foods, and appetite suppressants galore. I wonder how many of those celebrities and other people will gain back their weight when they return to eating regular food or quit taking their diet pills. Sadly, I think it will be nearly all of them.

Then I realized that the Lord has given us very special appetite suppressants that are with us all the time in the form of the Holy Spirit, and the armor of God in Ephesians 6. Our problem is that we don't listen to the Holy Spirit and we selectively put on the armor!

Listen up and get dressed!

Have a great day!

This has been an exciting month for me in regard to my speaking engagements. I was blessed to speak to a group of ladies in Neodesha, Kansas. The setting was a charming Victorian Bed and Breakfast and the ladies came from several different churches. Their desire is to grow in their relationship with the Lord and they are committed to meeting together each week for a Bible study. I am blessed that they will be using my book and workbook as their guide for the next twelve weeks. Here's the great part! Even though many of them are not trying to lose weight (my book is called "Winning the Battle of the Bulge: It's Not Just About the Weight") they understand that the principles in the book apply to every area of their lives.

I'll let you know about my other speaking engagement later in the week.

Happy New Year to you all! It's that time of year when we are all making resolutions, and right at the top of the list is - LOSE WEIGHT!

This year why don't you try something different? Why not change your heart before you try to change your eating habits? If you don't change the way you think you will not be able to permanently change the way you act. Our hearts need to be focused on a life of obedience, not a temporary diet.
