We all know that making healthy choices in diet and exercise leads to optimal health.  But your body is only one aspect of the person you are.  To create whole person health, make equally healthy choices when feeding and exercising your mind and spirit. 

1 Corinthians 6:19 tells us that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.  What are you reading?

 Live Gently and Be Blessed, 
Sally Y. Coffin, RN
