A New Journey — 30 Comments

  1. I may read this one myself..I need to get healthier as well….I look forward to your insight….AND, thanks for the book

  2. I read that book last summer and LOVED it. But, of course, life got busy teaching in the fall and all my good intentions went out the window. I just got the Made To Crave devotional this week and planned on returning to the principles in the book as part of my “getting healthier” plan for the new year. May I join you on this journey?  I would like to reread the book again too. It’s really worthwhile.

    I love your blog!

  3. what a great idea, Barbie! I pray grace for your journey! It’s so crazy how much we rely on food to “prop us up.” I’m always amazed at how weak we truly are as human beings. Good for you for working towards giving God everything! I also want to begin to honor His temple more this year 🙂 blessings!

  4. Well you have some really great resolutions! I will be rooting for you. Keep your head held high, explain to Jesus your goals and I will be praying for you! You can do it!

  5. Would love to go through the book…can’t right now. Thanks for your continued prayers. Look forward to hearing and reading what the Lord is teaching you through Lisa’s book. You always encourage me.

  6. Oh Barbie, I do all those same bad things. I don’t eat or sleep well. I don’t exercise enough to even say that I do, and while I do drink a lot of water, I know I should drink more. I really should grab this book and read along with you.

  7. Hi Barbie, I will be holding you up in prayer. I agree with Tiffany, the weight on the scale is not that important, it is your heart and soul with Jesus that is so important. Healthy eating and lifestyle should be a concern for God did give us this body to live in and take care of, but He is the real focus here. 🙂

    I think your great, I always have. The Spirit of God shines through you and touches people in ways I don’t think you see or understand. He has blessed me with you many times over.

    Jesus is the reason,

    • Wonderful Kerri. Do you plan to read the book or just share your journey through comments or on your blog? In any event, I am so thankful you are coming along with us!

  8. Happy New Year, Barbie. Praise God for a friend to come alongside you with the areas that concern you. Always remember you are God’s delight no matter what you do or don’t do. I believe you will find a healthy balance for your 2012. Your health matters. But please don’t worry about the # on a scale. Just be good to YOURSELF. You are worth caring for. May God give you daily strength to do one good health choice each day. He is more than able, lean on Him alone. Hugs

  9. I can relate.  I read Made to Crave last year and loved it.  But I think it may be time to revisit that subject…

  10. Hi Barbie!  Well, I see you are PURSUING great things!  Let me be one in the numbeer!  Sign me up!  By the way I chose the word RESTORATION for 2012!  Remember me, I was so blessed from your post on your word choice!  I tried to leave a comment for Vaness; but it wouldn’t take it. I was doing something wrong re. URL.
