In honor of National Celery Month, I thought I would re-post a recent post I wrote about the beauty of Celery!
Whether it’s Game Day, a simple party or group meeting; what is almost always on the menu? Wings!
Yum! You open up the box going for a drumstick, a flat, or both. But what is usually always overlooked and discarded? The celery!
In fact, it’s been so ignored, that it has been replaced by carrots. Crickets!!! I know it just dawned on you that there used to be celery in the box.
Well break out that peanut butter we talked about on last week, because after you read of the health benefits of celery, you may conclude you’ve found the perfect companion for your peanut butter. Continue reading

With God all things are possible,
When we commit we agree or pledge to do something in the future. People make commits everyday. They commit to be to work on time, to exercise, to picking up groceries on the way home from work, etc. However, making a verbal commitment is the easy part, following through often creates the challenge.
At the beginning of each fasting cycle Surrender Fasters commit to surrender something specific to God. Some make good on that promise while others never make it to the finish line.
Is there something special about the latter?
They were simply willing to pay the price. *But what is the price of commitment? Continue reading
The Surrender Fasters are being blessed during their time of surrender. To God be the glory! If you have a praise report please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Testimony from Monyca:
God is simply amazing. In the last two years I have had to go back for either a diagnostic or a sonogram due to them finding something on my initial annual mammograms. Each time God shows me favor with the 2nd test being negative. Since my mother died from breast cancer it increases my likelihood that I should get cancer too.

Have you learned to be content? That is the focus of Cycle 5 (Surrender Fast 2013). We are praying that God help us master the art of contentment.
This week I will uncover 4 contentment busters. The first is complaining.

They don’t see the silver lining in anything and if they do say anything remotely positive it’s only after they have exhausted their supply of complaints. But my friend, that should not be so!
Do you know it’s a sin to complain? Well it is. Any time you go against God’s commands it’s a sin. God’s Word clearly instructs us to do all things without murmuring and complaining (Philippians 2:14). Continue reading
