Are You Trying to Make Healthier Food Choices? Cut This First!

Cut This First!Are You Trying to Make Healthier Choices?

I guess it is no real shock that when you are trying to make healthier choices the first thing that we need to cut is sugar. But do you really know why? Ya’ll, this stuff is sooooo bad for you.  It is crazy addictive and so hard to stay away from, and is in almost everything that we eat!

Here is an article on sugar by Dr. Axe, who I am a huge fan of, called How Sugar Can Cause Cancer. There are quite a few negative effects of sugar, and while most are based on overuse over a long period of time, it is important to note that most of us do not realize how much sugar we are really getting each day. It is hidden in so many different ways. There are many negative effects on your body, that is caused by sugar. Continue reading

Saved by Grace!

Matthew 1:20-21
“But while he thought about these things behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

In these beautiful verses lies the reason that we should celebrate this little Babe’s birth. “For He will save His people from their sins…”
Live like you are saved by grace! Love like you are saved by grace! Praise like you are saved by grace! This season remember why we celebrate. Praise God for that sweet Baby who would later die so that we might truly live!
Give grace and love to others. Show them who He is through your actions every day. Read your Bible and pray. Build a wonderful relationship with God and grow spiritually, be more and more like Jesus. Walk His path for you, I promise you will not regret it. He has all the best planned for you. He loves you so much!

Blessings,

Amy
