    Dear Readers,

  • During the snowy and icy months, a person’s risk of falling increases. Typical injuries include broken ankle, hip, arms and shoulders as well as head and back injuries. LIM College recommends the following safety steps to help you be careful in the winter:

    Walk like a penguin—flat footed and take short steps.

    Wear footwear that provides traction, such as flat and waffled rubber soles versus heals or leather.

    Step down, not out from curbs so that your foot does not slide.

    My family traveled to Arizona to see family. During the drive, it occurred to me that I couldn’t remember Arizona’s state motto. Despite bullying my memory to give up the goods, the answer stubbornly remained in hiding. In true Grinch fashion, I decided, “If I can’t remember the motto I’ll make one instead.” After making this decision the rest came easy. None of these are intended to mock Arizona or Arizonans. Some of my most beloved people live in this fascinating state.

  • Whenever I need big-time prayers, I go to the big guns: my 6-year-old great-niece, Leah.

    This past summer when Hurricane Irma was about to decimate Florida, Leah prayed for the “hurricane to go away” and especially that her “Tee Tee Nancy” wouldn’t be scared.

    Irma didn’t go away, but it did decrease enough in strength that at least my house didn’t blow away.

    So, I put that in the win column for Leah’s answered prayers.

    Plus, I wasn’t afraid, so that’s two wins for Leah.

  • Editor’s note: This column is adapted from Nancy Kennedy’s book, “Praying With Women of the Bible,” which is no longer in print.

    A number of years ago, amid the mice and filth of a Taliban prison in Afghanistan, two ordinary American young women wrote and sang praise songs to the Lord.

    One of the most common New Year’s resolutions we make is to lose weight. Eating the correct portions of nutritious foods and engaging in physical activity are two keys to successful weight loss. One way that may help you keep your portions under control is to be mindful of what you eat.

    Mindful eating means you eat slowly and enjoy your food with all your senses. When you are more mindful of what you eat, you may become more aware of when you become full, which prevents overeating.
