Work it Out!
Women today are bombarded with countless images telling us what beauty is. The message we are fed is that by nipping, tucking, lifting, extending, etcetera, we just might get a little bit closer to this ideal. So how do we counter balance this toxic message pervading the minds of beautiful women everywhere? More importantly how do we instill healthy practices in Christian women who are called to an even higher standard of beauty– one that takes its root in the character. If you haven’t heard of the acronym “NEW START” it’s a mnemonic device coined by Weimar Institute to help people remember God’s 8 natural laws of health: – Nutrition – Exercise – Water – Sunshine – Temperance – Air – Rest – Trust in God Though having all of these elements is essential to total health (mental, physical, spiritual and emotional) the focus on this article is on Exercise and how it benefits us girls. So without further ado, here are four (4) ways exercise improves the health of females: 1) Good for Your Heart Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in Canada (1). Along with a shift to a plant based […]
The Golden Path
In his book, Dune universe, Frank Herbert uses the term ‘The Golden Path’ to refer to character, Leto II Atreides’s strategy to prevent humanity’s ultimate destruction. The Golden Path is the main driving force in all of Herbert’s novels, however, what the golden path represents, remains a mystery to Herbert’s readers even to this day. As a believer of the Bible, the concept of the golden path is very intriguing. Herbert’s idea of the golden path being a solution to prevent humanity’s descruction, brings to my mind, the ‘plan of redemption’. We are no experts in the Bible, but the plan of redemption is a somewhat similar ‘concept’ to that of Atreides’s. It is a plan to redeem or save humanity from destruction; a mystery whose unveiling is still pending. The aim: to give humanity the opportunity of eternal life. Christian author, Ellen White describes this plan of redemption most poignantly in the book Patriarchs and Prophets. She writes, “The Son of God, heaven’s glorious Commander, was touched with pity for the fallen race. His heart was moved with infinite compassion as the woes of the lost world rose up before Him. But divine love had conceived a plan whereby man might […]
1-2-3 Steps to Naturally Clean Skin
The saying goes, “Beauty is pain” and quite frankly (depending on your perception of how beauty can be attained) this is true. Previous studies have found that various beauty products contain chemicals that have detrimental health effects associated with them. For example, researchers have found that phthalates, a key component in plastics, have also been found in several cosmetic and personal-care products, and has been associated with various reproductive defects and complications, etcetera. (1) Acquiring beauty nowadays can be somewhat toxic, depending on the types of products you use, but thankfully, there are natural alternatives that work VERY well, without the danger. In this blog, we would like to offer you a quick and easy, 3-step blitz on how to get squeaky clean skin. 1. Cleanse!

Hedonism to Edenism: The Science of What Makes us Happy
In a results-driven society like ours, happiness is generally dismissed as secondary to the more “important” things in life like our careers, relationships and health. Work those things out and happiness will find you. In childhood we learn the song that teaches the effect of being happy and knowing it is… clapping our hands. Great. What if I told you that happiness is not only correlated, but causal in determining the success of your career, your relationships and your health? It’s the truth, today’s science is showing us that happiness is not just the result of a successful life but more so the cause of it. So how do we get happy? Typically, people take a short cut. The quickest, most immediate route to making the self satisfied; whether it’s through music, food, sex, climbing Everest or doing drugs. We often view the things we can do for ourselves as our primary source of happiness. We are pretty much born and raised with this mentality, so don’t be offended when I tell you that this approach to life is called “Egoistic Hedonism”. Hedonism is derived from the Greek word for pleasure, hēdonē. Merriam Webster defines Egoistic Hedonism as, “the ethical […]
My first impression about the Peppermint Lip Balm was that it smelled so good! I love the cooling after effect the peppermint has on my lips prior to application. It glides on effortlessly and is not overly oily or dry. A little goes a long way so constant reapplication is not necessary. This lip balm would hydrate my lips for up to four (4) hours, and I consider that to be a lot compared to previous non-natural lip balms I owned in the past. On the topic of non-natural lip balms, they often irritated and dried up my lips oppose to hydrating it. Sometimes they would become so dry, they’d crack up and form rashes (and that was not a pretty sight). Ever since I switched from non-natural to this 100% natural lip balm, my lips have been so moist and luscious than ever before! Thank you for your product! I look forward to ordering more!
