Just a Flyer- Wow!

So I get these flyers from Children's and I get one in the mail (remember my other post said I was switching to Organic) well, there is an article in there about Childhood Obesity and puberity: An alarming trend.  I was amazed!  God used this at just the right time!


It stated that approximately one in 5,000 children experience early puberty. They have seen it in children as early as age 5 and this is coming from Dayton Ohio!


What is normal? The average that girls start puberty is age 11.  The average that boys start puberty is age 13. 


A 9 year old may start puberty early but have the body of a 13 year old and not be able to deal with the stress of puberty.


They listed the 5-2-1-0
5 fruits/vegetables a day
2 hours or less of screen time
1 hour of daily exercise
0 sugary drinks


I am glad I picked up this article it just affirmed what I have already been hearing and reading.  I am glad that I have switched to organic to help and also started using Juice Plus to help- The average fruits and vegetables we should be getting a day is 7-13 and we cannot get that so Juice Plus helps bridge that gap and gets us there!  Check it out www.pwheeler1.juiceplus.com  You can get your kids on it for free and then your whole family is on its way to being healthier!

Going Organic!

Ok- I have decided to switch to all Organic (or try to) at least for the kids for the most part.  So last week when I went grocery shopping I went to Aldi's and picked up what they had that I could use that was Organic and then I headed over to Kroger and picked up a few things that I had coupons for.  I also ordered through a Homeschool Co-Op from Azure but it won't be in for a couple of weeks.  So far everything is going well.  The kids can't tell any difference in the taste of anything and I can't either.  I actually saved money at the grocery store because I didn't buy any extra snacks or things that I normally would have picked up "just because".  Here is something that I listened to that really made me think that I needed to change what my kids are eating, give it a listen and let me know what you think.  Also if you already are eating Organic give me some blogs to follow, I need some new recipes and things to try!  Thanks!

Devotions

I just listened to this awesome podcast and wanted to share it.  It is really something to think about.  I just love the way that Aimee Byrd suggests things to read and says that women should be theologically sound to be better helpers to their husbands. 
Here is the link to the podcast, I hope this comes through and you are able to listen to it, the site it is from is here: http://www.mortificationofspin.org/mos/podcast/extra-special-revelation  Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Week 1 of Intentionally Focused

Here is the start of the first week with the Bible study with Good Morning Girls, here is the verse for the first day:
Ephesians 5:1
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children
If anyone is doing this study and would like to comment on what this verse means to you please share it  I am also doing the children's study so I will try to post more on that later.
