Excerpt from our interview – BEEP model

Kimberley
I so agree. That’s my tagline really, how exercise and healthy eating is to the body what prayer and Bible study is to the spirit. That’s a good lead into the BEEP round.  Rachel will give quick tips on the four disciplines of Bible study, eating healthy, exercise, and prayer or BEEP. So what do you have for us for a quick tip for Bible study?

Rachel
For Bible study, the quick tip is to do it daily. To be in the Word daily. With technology we have apps that give us access to it all the time. We can have a Bible on our phone and we can get devotions emailed right to us. So we have that access to do that daily. To be in the Word daily and studying God’s Word daily is my tip on Bible study.

Kimberley
What about your quick tip on eating healthy?

Rachel
My quick tip on eating healthy is to go green. Look for ways to add in the green foods, whether it’s going darker in your salads, adding greens into a smoothie or making some purees and adding them into your family favourite dishes that you’re already eating.

Kimberley
Your quick tip for exercise?

Rachel
My quick tip for exercise is to listen to your body. We have so many crazy exercise programs out there. They’re great for a lot of people but they can cause a lot of injuries. When we’re starting our journey towards health keep it simple and really listen to our bodies. If something hurts our bodies, it’s not good for us. Even if everyone else on the block is training for a marathon if running hurts your knees, don’t do it. Really listen to your body and find a kind of exercise that is going to help your body get stronger and not injure it.

Kimberley
Love it. And finally, you’re quick tip on prayer?

Rachel
This comes right from a sermon I recently heard is that when we go into prayer is to pray boldly and to ask God boldly with our petitions. In this sermon, it’s just like when I child asks their father to fix the toy boldly. They know their dad can do it and they boldly don’t have any doubts. And that is how we should come before our Heavenly Father in prayer.
