Our online ministry is changing its name from “New Life Health Ministries” to “TEAMzao”, as of October 1st, 2016.
There are many reasons for this change, and much prayer has gone into the decision. One reason for this is because we do not wish to sound like we are some old, southern baptist organization (we love some of those organizations – but, they simply are not us).

Hey everybody, long time no talk! I have been extremely busy living life to the fullest. I got married, my wife and I got a puppy, and I started a new full time job as a patient care tech – all while still going to school full time. Sounds like I got a lot on my plate right? Sounds like I am living life right? Well, I am here today to say I have not been living the way I was supposed to be living. To explain why I said this, I am going to tell you a little story: Continue reading “Livin’: Body, Mind, and Spirit”
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.

“Spiritually hangry” is a term I coined during my third week of youth camps in Batesburg, SC. Continue reading “Spiritually Hangry”
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!

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.

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!!!!
