Juggling Priorities

Juggling priorities

No matter your age, balancing priorities is often a challenge.  When we try to put everything first, we end up constantly juggling and compromising our core values. To relieve the stress and strain of this predicament, keep in mind that there are five areas of priority that must be kept in proper order and alignment:

1.  Personal growing relationship with God.
2.  Quality relationship with marriage partner, if married.
3.  Developing Godly character in children.
4.  Vocation
5.  Ministry

If you are concerned about artificial food dyes, you can color Easter eggs using natural food dyes that you make in your own kitchen using foods such as beets, blueberries and grape juice. Here’s an article that explains how: http://usat.ly/ZTdz2J 

Our Daily Bread

March 2013, National Nutrition Month, provides a great opportunity and incentive to focus on healthful eating habits that meet your nutritional needs. Over the last three weeks, in conjunction with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ national campaign, I discussed what “Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day” means to me and then focused specifically on “Eat Right” and “Your Way.”

Finally, let’s take a closer look at that third part: what “Every Day” implies.

RDs Help Meet Everyday NeedsOur Daily Bread

In showing us how to pray, Jesus taught us to ask in faith for our daily bread. Set your health plan in motion by making a daily commitment and taking one step at a time. Commit to your health plan. Come every day prepared to be tested. Often your resolve will be tested and you may be tempted by a vast array of choices, time pressures, and conflicting priorities . Focus this day on the needs and choices you will make this day. This pathway to health is an ongoing process, not a time-limited project. Apply what you’ve learned each day and take it to heart.

“Knowing is not enough. We must apply. Willing is not enough. We must do.”

New Credential for Registered Dietitians

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics announced today, on national Registered Dietitians Day, a new credential: RDN for “registered dietitian nutritionist.” We know that all registered dietitians are nutritionists but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians. Adding “nutritionist” to the registered dietitian credential communicates to everyone the broader concept of wellness and prevention. This is an exciting time for our profession! I will begin using the new credential right away.
