Excerpt from our interview – BEEP model
What tip do you have for us for Bible study?
Read familiar passages slowly and carefully; you never know when the Holy Spirit will give you new insight.
Excellent. And eating healthy quick tip?
One of the benefits of healthy eating is the psychological boost that comes from knowing we’re doing something good for ourselves. Even before we see results, eating healthy is good for us.
As women of a certain age, as I mentioned before, we might think that rapid physical decline is part of a given. It doesn’t have to be if we include regular cardio and resistance training to our regular schedules.
And finally, your quick tip for prayer?
I think it’s best to start our day is to commit it to the Lord even before we crawl out of bed in the morning. I think that’s the very best way to start.
