Stretch, Drink and Eat for Health
Yoga is a holistic approach not only to complete fitness but also a means to get you to a deep place of meditation where you can focus the mind on spending time with Christ.

Let Boys be Boys
There’s nothing wrong with boys being kinder and gentler. But do we really want to program out of boys the dynamic, risk-taking, get it done, competitive, spirit God created in them? Have we really thought through the unintended consequences of a generation of boys who have been stripped of their male energy?
