Journey to Christian Wellness

Faith Bible Image

Faith

“… apart from God we can do nothing.”  

We believe in the tenet that permanent, positive change must be devoted to God, directed by God, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

If you agree, don’t take this journey alone! Our Bible studies, devotions, classes, and workshops grow intimacy with God and help equip us to live in His will. More…

3 Ways to Release

Do you remember Popeye? The scrapply cartoon sailor with kyphosis, poor speech, and frequent involvement in daunting situations with dubious people. Popeye was generally mild mannered until the build up caused him to pop off. His signature exclamation of “That’s all I can stands – I can’t stands no more!” revealed his tipping point. At that moment Popeye turned to spinach. One can gave him the strength needed to whip his issues straight. I can relate to Popeye. (Not the spinach part – while I do find it mighty tasty and appreciate the vitamin content). I can relate to the ‘build up to fed up part’ and assert at some point and in some ways we all can. Live long enough, and periods chocked full of challenges will come. Times when we get close to our ‘tipping point’ and while we may not turn to spinach – we turn to something…some action…or someone. Stress begs for release and that call rarely goes unanswered. A honest look at our habits, how we spend our time/money, and the things we take in (food, drink or other substances, people etc.) shows the means we take to get relief. Some methods of relief  bring help and healing. Others bring harm. What kind do you choose and use? I’m in a Popeye period. God is holding me together. The audio shares more including three actions that bring me release. I hope they are helpful to you. Note: This was a video post, but time constraints, technical challenges, and disturbingly Bozoish hair led me to nix the visual part and share audio only.

{Recipe} Fabulous Fortified Oatmeal

I adore oatmeal and eat it often. This popular grain is a delicious and cost effective way to add protein and heart-healthy soluble fiber to your breakfast. Many mornings, I pick up a cup of oatmeal from the hot food bar at Whole Foods – and HOOK IT UP! When time or the day’s schedule doesn’t allow a drive into Baton Rouge for breakfast, I often make yummy fortified oatmeal at home. This video shows my method/recipe. Click to watch Real deal: preparation takes a bit longer than a nuking a powdery packet of instant oatmeal, but the health, satiety and taste benefits are well worth the time. Give the method a try. If you do, I’d love to hear your thoughts.  ... read more

Last night at Hip Hop Aerobics…{w video clips}

So. Last night I carved out some precious pm time and drove across town to Pilates class. Unfortunately, I hit traffic and was too late to be admitted. Needing a good workout, I stuck around, rode the stationary bike for a bit and tipped into the next class – Hip Hop Aerobics. The music was contemporary but clean and bumpin! I love dancing, and in my mind’s eye, my get down was just a touch off Janet in her Rhythm Nation video… http://www.nettyejohnson.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Janet.mp4 Y’all – what my real eyes saw in the mirrored walls of the studio was more like Whitney in this video. http://www.nettyejohnson.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/NotWhitney.mp4 Ok. That was not Whitney in the clip, (it’s a Whitney parody from In Living Color) – but that was pretty much me in class. The look in the mirror told the truth. My body does not understand hip hop movements. At times it looked like I was fighting the air and if the class was full, I’d have been bumping into folks. I’m enthusiastic and a good sport so I gave it a solid try for 45 minutes. But laughs aside, the time was not well spent. I didn’t get a good workout because instead of executing purposeful movements, I was bumbling and stumbling around trying to figure out the movements and keep up with the instructor. I didn’t even break a sweat (which happens every time I workout – and as of late even while sitting still – but that is another post). My lessons: Dancewise – I’m gonna take a pass on Hip Hop and dance all over my lane (late... read more

Self-Care is not Selfish

The new year has just started and blank pages of my new calendar are filling with plans, work, activities, and responsibilities. Perhaps you can relate to feeling that you have more tasks than time, or that you take care so many people and so many things, taking care of yourself gets neglected. This should not be. Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. Self-care is temple care. Nourishing self-care is sound physical stewardship that honors God and supports our ability to serve (See 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, 1 Corinthians 10:31.) For help in this area, check out my article Self-Care Strategies for a Happier Healthier You in 2017  in this month’s issue of Baton Rouge Christian Life... read more
