HEALTHY HABITS FOR OCTOBER:  Drink more water/get more sleep/get more exercise/limit sugar
WORD FOR 2021: Steadfast


  1. Great list. and word.
    Prayers limiting sugar goes well
    The more I tried limits, the more I craved sweets. Then, I started telling myself no, I don't need sweets. That support does help.

  2. You are busy, busy, busy. My list is very short.

    1.wake up and get dressed
    2.make bed Scripture for today while drinking
    my morning coffee
    4.get the mail
    5.answer the phone
    7.go to bed

    The End
