Setting the Bar #3

Setting the Bar #3

This last month has easily contained the most problems we have ran into with our progress charting for you all in these “Setting the Bar” posts! Our last six weeks actually should have been half-way through August; however, some of our team was not healthy enough to make the post. Sense we have had these health issues and other complications, we have learned a lot about the reality of health for the body, mind, and soul.

Hopefully, seeing how we all have handled our health throughout these difficult situations can help inspire all of you reading to do your best in difficult situations, as well. Hopefully, all of us on the writting team here can help inspire one another, also.

A Spirit-Planned, Rough, Crazy Month

A Spirit-Planned, Rough, Crazy Month

Many people know that I’ve been hospital / home ridden for a while now, many have even asked me about what all I’ve been through; so, I’m finally taking the time to say what all I can about everything.


One of the following events did not really happen in the last couple months, see if you can guess which:

  • I was attacked by a dragon.
  • My femur was snapped in half.
  • I got a concussion.
  • I became a cyborg.
  • I had an emergency brain surgery.
  • I was brain washed.
  • I sat still.

Setting the Bar #2

Setting the Bar #2

Twelve weeks ago, four of us from the site got together and made a commitment to journal our progression through our health journeys in the areas of our minds, bodies, and souls. Six weeks ago, we shared some of what we had learned in this process with all of you. Now, we are back checking in on our progress and being open with you all, our readers. We do this so that we are held accountable for our progression, so that you all can look to us and see how we set our own bars, and so that anyone reading can join us in our journeys!

Grilling on a Budget

So, this month’s overall theme is enjoying the great outdoors. I don’t do outside. I don’t fish, though I used to be real good at sitting in a boat and drinking beer (7 years sober!). I don’t hike, even when my hip worked. One thing I do enjoy, however, is grilling. There’s something about meat (and veggies) and fire in a controlled environment. And I am a grilling rock star*, BOW BEFORE ME, PEONS!!!! But, I’m also usually broke. How do we grill on a budget? Continue reading “Grilling on a Budget”

Why God Doesn’t Want Your Sacrifice….

Why God Doesn’t Want Your Sacrifice….

Something I really hate to do is apologize. Not because I’m a bad person or because I think it wrong…. It’s just hard for me. I have to apologize for some of my past mistakes and past teachings. I have been glorifying and romanticizing self-sacrifice to the point that I missed the point of scripture at certain points in my life. I would love to just start with that straight apology and get it over with, but as a story teller I have forbade myself from starting with the climax.

Setting The Bar. Post 1.

Setting The Bar. Post 1.

Six weeks ago some of our team got together and decided to share our health journey with everyone. We want to show you, our readers, what it looks like to really be on the journey. None of us are perfect and we are all at different places in our journey, but we are all trying our best and want to reach out to all of you to help you try and do your best also.

Our desire with these posts is to set the bar for ourselves and all of you, so every six weeks we want to update all of our readers about where we were six weeks ago, where we are now, and where we want to be in the next six weeks. This health journey is a spiritual, mental, and bodily journey that we are all excited to share with you!!!!

My Health Journey: One Foot In Front Of The Other

A few weeks back, I was having a discussion with a leader at my church about some of his health goals. One question that he asked me, I think is the same question most people with health goals ask first:

“Where do I start?”
