The Wellness Revelation

The Wellness Revelation

What would a great dinner be like without the dessert course?

Lots of people say they feel better when they exercise.  I don’t.  I usually feel more tired and worn out when I’m finished.  In addition, I just lost one hour of my life.  Do you think exercise might be overrated?  We are the fattest nation in the world, yet we have more fitness centers, personal trainers and exercise classes available, so what’s up with that?  This should be enough to tell us something’s not working!

On our show today, we talk with the founder and author of the Wellness Revelation, Alisa Keeton.  Alisa is an expert on how we can lose what weighs us down so we can love God, ourselves and others.

Fitness is something you either love or avoid.  Regardless of what category  you’re in, we all can agree we will be more effective if we’re stronger and more energized. Continue reading

Representative Mike Moon

Today, I’m going to introduce  you to a current Missouri State Representative, Mike Moon, who is brave, principled and honorable.  It takes one to know one.  On our show today, you’re going to gain some insights into what it takes to have integrity and how to have a clean conscience in the political world.

The purpose for a special session is to address urgent legislative necessities, yet most governors call these to showcase their positions and to provide political theater for lobbyists and political junkies.  As my friend, Mike Moon, was preparing to go back to Jefferson City, he recorded a video of himself butchering a chicken, which is what he does for his livelihood.  It caused a lot of excitement similar to some of the National sensation I experienced when I was in office.   You can watch it here.

This is a picture of me with Mike Moon at a Wallbuilders Conference.

 

I remember during my first session how much I looked forward to going home when the session adjourned for the year.  Recently, the Governor called the General Assembly back to Jefferson City to pass more laws.  For those of you less familiar with the legislative calendar, the regular session starts the first week of January and is finished in mid-May.  The special session should be only used for emergencies, not political posturing!  

Special session are allowed for urgent legislative crises that require action before the session begins next year.  Yet, most governors call these to showcase their positions and to provide political theater for lobbyists and political junkies.  Any legislation passed during this special session could have been passed during the regular session.   Continue reading

Exit (a.k.a. Suicide)

Exit aka Suicide

This picture was taken at the Living Waters Studios.  From Left to right:  My Husband, Bernie, Me and Allen Atzbiwith, the General Manager.

 

Most of us remember the commercials, “Calgon Take Me Away!” and many “Southwest-WannaGet Away.”  Most people, if they are honest, would admit they have experienced moments of despair when they thought about taking a shortcut.

Death is sad enough because of the loss, but an intentional death is extra tragic.  Many of us were grieved to hear about the baby, Charlie Gard, and the couple who jumped off a building in the prime of their lives just this last week. Continue reading

In God We Trust

In God We Trust

This is a picture of me with Representative Rick Saccone.  We met at a Wallbuilders Conference a few years ago.

 

Have you ever given much thought to our National Motto, “In God We Trust”?  It’s funny how some people freak out when they hear any trace of God, yet it’s written on all of our currency!

In God We Trust

In my conversation with Representative Rick Saccone, he told me he went into a public school near Halloween; he said he saw witches on brooms, Dracula with blood dripping from his teeth, zombies ghouls and goblins.  He saw every ghost, but the Holy Ghost because He’s not allowed in!  And you tell me none of that traumatized our children, but you think the National Motto will traumatize our children?

Our National Motto

On our show today we talk about our National Motto, In God We Trust.

It’s funny how some people freak out when they hear any trace of God. Our guest said he went into a public school near Halloween, he said he saw witches on brooms, Dracula with blood dripping from his teeth, zombies ghouls and goblins. He saw every ghost, but the Holy Ghost because He’s not allowed in. And you tell me none of that traumatized our children, but you think the National Motto will traumatize our children?

It’s time for us to stop being ignorant. The National Motto was designed to unify our Country. On our show today, you’ll hear why.

Today, we interview Rick Saccone. Rick currently serves in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Rick was born in 1958, served in the Air Force and was elected to the Pennsylvania House in 2010, where he is currently serving.

Thank you for allowing us to serve you for so many years!

 

This is probably the most difficult newsletter I’ve had to write.  Thank you for your encouragement and for your faithful support for us.  Over the last 30 years, the message of Back to Basics Christian Bookstore has seen lives saved, marriages repaired, prisoners restored, suicides called off, addicts freed and thousands of people have found Christ.

We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to take care of you!  It’s hard to admit the struggle, but the internet, changing media formats, consumer buying patterns and publisher price erosion have caused tremendous havoc in our industry.

We have a heart to continue and would be overjoyed to be able to find a way to keep Back To Basics Christian Bookstore in the community.  At this point, we’re looking to leave our home of 33 years unless there’s a Divine Intervention. Continue reading
