A Lifetime Investment in Overall Health

“I’m a huge proponent of health for your whole family, starting with your children.
If you’re not healthy and not living a healthy lifestyle you’re not going to be good for anyone else.
If you treat your body right you have the energy and stamina to do it all.
Helping kids understand the importance of proper nutrition and exercise
is a lifetime investment in overall health.”

Jumping Out of Bed in the Morning?

“What makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning?
What puts a smile on your face, the kind you can’t wipe off if you tried?
What fascinates you? Motivates you? Overwhelms you in the very best sense?
If you don’t know, I suggest not wasting one more single day until you find out.”
~ Chip Gaines,
Co-Owner & Co-Founder – Magnolia Homes,
& Co-Star – Fixer Upper

Thriving in the Middle of the Pain

“It was such a blessing to find myself thriving
in the middle of the pain. Unless you find a way to do that,
there’s always going to be this fake illusion that once you get there–
wherever “there” is for you–you’ll be happy.
But that’s just not life. If you can’t find happiness in the ugliness,
you’re not going to find it in beauty, either.”
~ Joanna Gaines,
Co-Owner, Co-Founder & Lead Designer – Magnolia Homes,
& Co-Star – Fixer Upper

Hand-holding, Flowers & Nice Gestures

the hand-holding, the flowers, and the nice gestures,

Does That Not Sound Odd to You?

“”When a plane crashes and some die while others live,
a skeptic calls into question God’s moral character,
saying that he has chosen some to live and others to die on a whim;
yet you say it is your moral right to choose whether the child
within you should live or die.
Does that not sound odd to you?
When God decides who should live or die, he is immoral.
When you decide who should live or die, it’s your moral right.””
~ Ravi Zacharias,
Christian Apologist, Author, Radio Host, Scholar &
Founder & Chairman of the Board of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries

Belittling the Other Parent

“Spouses get divorced; children never do. They are always going to be the child of your ex.
So, the way you treat your ex, their parent, their other parent,
is, in a sense, the way you are treating them.
So, if you can connect those two things and realize
that by belittling the other parent, you’re belittling them.”
~ Robert Beeson,
Founder – Solo Parent Society
