Today is the last day of this column on Beliefnet.com.  After over 12 years of daily writings on Beliefnet, I’m moving on.  I thank God for this wonderful experience.  As far as I’ve been told, I’m the last original Beliefnet contributing editor and writer; everyone else is new.  Now, however, I need to make some…

If ever you are worried, fearful, or think that things are not all right, hand it over to God. Put your problems into God’s infinite care.  Hold up the troubles so that God can see them.  He will see your good intentions and efforts to do what is right, be your best, and be good…

It’s not just how much we eat, it’s WHAT we eat that affects our weight.  Those who eat more vegetables, fruits and whole grains gain less weight, and maintain weight loss better than those who eat a lot of carbohydrates, potatoes, starches, and meats, and drink a lot of sweetened sodas.  It’s not enough to…

That sends chills through my spine, the thought of ice cream. Chills of delicious delight, but also chills of fear as ice cream was one of the…
