Excerpt from our interview – BEEP model

Kimberley

We’re going to move on to the BEEP round. Renee 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?

Renee

I like that! Kimberley that’s what I like about you, I thought “oh this is neat”. For Bible study, every day, morning, noon or night, just choose a time. Be comfortable, get into a room, close the door, turn off the TV and study and read that Word. Even if you get online and both of you study together that’s again as you say, Kimberley, finding that accountability partner. If you do it every day it’s just like daily nuggets. It helps nourish the mind, body, and spirit.

Kimberley

Yes, right now my church, as a group, as a church family, we are reading through the book of Acts over the month of May. And every day on line, we have a Facebook group for every day to go through each of the chapters and then talk about them. So we’re accountable to each other to make sure that we read it. I really enjoy reading it every single morning knowing that everybody else is as well and that we can discuss it as a group together.

Now, what do you have for a quick tip for eating healthy?

Renee

Eating healthy? Stop counting the calories, just eat in moderation. You may say, “Renee what does that mean?” Look at what you used to eat and then cut it in half. That’s one, cut in half what you used to eat. Two, eat more fruits and vegetables. Eat them at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That way you can at least get three of your vegetables in. They say strive for 5 to 9 for fruits and vegetables. And then the third one is to cut down on the high fats. Stop the frying. Bake more. Bake more meats and more dishes as opposed to frying. So those three things, looking at portion control, eating more fruits and vegetables, and cut down on the frying. Because the better you eat helps this temple. And you want to eat to nourish the physical temple just as Bible study helps with the mental temple.

Kimberley

Wonderful. And what quick tip do you have for exercise?

Renee

Exercise three to five times a day. I know in this world we don’t have time, but if you can divide it into 10 in the morning, 10 at lunch, and 10 at dinner because it’ll help build a better, stronger foundation so we can help better serve God and others. So get in that exercise. Walking—find an exercise that you like to do like walking, you can do some strength training, even flexibility exercises. A lot of people forget those. Three things, well really four that I want to say. 3 to 5 times a week or either divide it into 10-10-10, aerobic exercise like walking, strength training with weights because you can do it right there at your office or at home, and as well flexible exercises that you can do at your office or at home.

Kimberley

I love the 10-10-10, I’m a real advocate of that. And what I find, Renee, is if I say I’m just going to do 10 minutes once I get started—the hard part is getting started—but once you get started you’re going into it 10 minutes and you think, “You know what? I want to keep going.” So I love the 10-10-10.

Renee

Thank you.

Kimberley

And what’s your quick tip for prayer?

Renee

Prayer. Make it a habit just like brushing your teeth. You don’t have to get out of your bed. Stretch like an animal stretch and say your prayers right there. Say your prayers before you even go out of the house. Just a few minutes every day. Some people can’t do it or forget to do it but I think if you do it every day for 21 days you build a good habit. So you can pray as soon as you go out the door, at lunch, at dinner, pray before you go to bed. Write out a little schedule. You can have a prayer group over the telephone. At 5 o’clock the phone rings and every body prays. So if you need to pray in a group, pray. Because prayer helps heal the soul, body and mind. Prayer helps. Believe me, it does.
