    Great post, Ava! It has surprised me how many people I’ve come across in recent years who weren’t taught or didn’t listen to these instructions for good health and hygiene. In the US our healthcare system and our culture are both crumbling. I know people whose parents never ever took them to the doctor and didn’t teach them these health habits. Of course, this resulted in long-term issues. SO, your post here may be more significant than you ever knew. Your post may inform people for the very first time!

    Ava, tremendous post! I have been inspired lately to return to working out. As a grandma, I had let it slide. Then I saw a video of someone older than me running, weight lifting etc. and looking and feeling amazing. “Ok,” I said. “I’m in!”
    Your tips are great and we must be lifelong stewards of our extraordinary bodies!

    We need more messages like this on our health, Ava. After all, the Lord created us body, soul, and spirit. But sometimes Christians just concentrate on the last two and forget about the body and how it really honors the Lord when we care for our bodies by doing these practical steps of rest, exercise, healthy eating and more, Thank you!
