final FCA club day of the year…

LOGO_3CLR_LGToday, I will be going to Lee County High School for the final club day of the school year.  Most of the time when our Fellowship of Christian Athletes huddles meet we do more of a discipleship based programs.  On Club day a lot of our students are ones that don’t come to the weekly huddles and we are able to do more of an evangelistic program and share the Gospel with them.  Please pray for our last club today that many students will attend and hear the Gospel.  We are also going to be encouraging our students who have committed their lives to Christ to pursue Him through daily prayer and Bible study this summer either for the first time in their lives or at a more committed level than they ever have.  Please pray for our students that they will pursue their relationship with Christ this summer, and pray fro me that I will communicate God’s word clearly to them!  I will post an update later today to let you know how things go.  Thanks so much for your prayers.

***Update…

Thank you all so much for your prayers for today’s club at the high school.  We had a smaller turn out today and the majority were actually teens who have made a profession of faith.   So, I took the opportunity to really challenge them to make it a goal to grow in their relationship with Christ and impact their peers for Christ.   I shared with them that 64% of all people who accept Christ do it before the age of 18 and that same age group is most influenced by their peers.  So, based on this it is even more vital that they are being bold for Christ in word and deed with their peers.  Please pray for them that we will continue to be able to disciple and show the love of Christ to our students over the summer.  Pray that they will stay strong and pursue Christ daily!  Thank you so much!

90 Day Challenge Update – Week 8

bodybyviI can’t wait till summer! I am longing for the days of warm weather where while working on a 90 day challenge I can go outside with my boxer or family and walk and run to help lose this weight. Unfortunatley winter seems to be hanging on here in Kentucky with another good snow last night and very cold temperatures today. Warmth come soon!

This week I am happy to report that I am down another pound. It isn’t much, but it’s progress. With all my ups and downs I am currently down 10 lbs from the start of my 90 Day challenge.

Getting healthy has been a slow process but as I look at my kids I know it’s a much needed one. I am loving spending time playing with them and want to be able to be a dad who get’s out and plays sports with them, not one who can only cheer from the sideline. I also am trying to do better at setting an example of good eating and exercise. How about you? Are you able to be an “active” participant in your family? If not won’t you consider joining me on a 90 Day Body by Vi challenge??? Contact me today and let’s get started!

club day…

LOGO_3CLR_LGToday, I was blessed with the opportunity to help lead two FCA Huddles at Lee County High School during their monthly Club Day.  As I was looking for a topic to talk to the student about this week I stumbled upon a devotional dvd from Matthew West about story.  The basic idea was that each of us has our own life story and that God is our author.  When we trust Him to be that author and lead us on the path He has designed for us we can have peace and comfort knowing that He will give strength and always be there for us!  Yet so many of us choose to be our own author and write the story of how we think our lives should go and basically make a mess of our life story.  Trusting God is truly the only way to have peace and contentment in life.   It’s a good lesson that I need to remind myself of often and I felt would apply well to  our students too.  The students listened intently as I spoke and I challenged them to trust God to direct their lives no matter how rough their story may currently be.  Please pray for them that they will surrender to Him!

90 Day Body By Vi Challenge Update – Week 6

It has been a week of forward progress I am happy to report.  Through much hard work and saying no more than I wanted to I am down another 2 pounds.  Actually almost but not quite three pounds from my last update!   I am really happy that things are moving along and falling away and hopefully next week I will report even greater success.

On Friday August 31st, my wife and I will be having a Challenge Party at our house and we would love to invite you to come check out all Visalus has to offer and how you can get your life on a healthier track.  The challenge party will only last approximately 1 hour maybe less and there is not commitment or pressure to buy anything.  We just want to get the information out there too you.   So please think about it and then let us know if you want to join us on our 90 Day Challenge!!!

90 Day Body By Vi Challenge Update – Week 5

It’s hard to believe but I am already another week into my 90 Day challenge for a total of 35 days so far.  The great news is that since my last time writing you I am down almost two more pounds.   Even better than that my belt has moved in another notch which makes me very happy!  This week I also found that I can add a little bit of Strawberry Nestle Quick to my shake to make it taste just like one of my favorite childhood drinks, which has been very much enjoyed.

The challenge is working great and I am still continuing to share with as many people as I can about how they can join me.  I want to get as many people as I can to join me on this challenge and start getting healthier.  Too many times as Christians especially we worry about all the various sins that can affect our bodies, but yet through gluttony we are just as bad.   So, if you are ready to make a healthy change in your life, come join me asap!!!

challenge party success…

Tonight we hosted our first Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge Party at the Rec Center.   We had a really good turn out of both people that we were expecting and others we didn’t know if they would show or not.  When all was over two new people joined our Visalus family and committed to try the 90 Day Challenge!  We are really excited to share with everyone about how they can get healthy and are looking forward to our next challenge party to share with more people!  If you couldn’t make it tonight and would like to get started on a healthier you, contact me asap!

90 Day Body By Vi Challenge Update – Week 2

I am 14 days into my challenge and feeling much better.  This week I didn’t drop as much weight as the last but I am officially down 7 pounds from my starting weight.  There have been a few days where I really wanted to be bad and down as much soft serve ice cream here at the Rec Center as I possibly could.   However, thankfully willpower has been strong and we have made progress!  My goal is to be down by 12-15 lbs next week week when I write my update.

I know I have spoken with many of you about joining me on my Body By Vi Challenge and I would still love to have you join me.  This Saturday, July 21st at 5pm at the Lee County Rec Center we are having a “Challenge Party” where you can come sample the Visalus products and ask questions about what might work for you.  I really hope you will join me on this journey to better health!
