Reshaping it All - Day 42

Reshaping it All - Day 42

Candace with four of her top-five priorities

If you're following along with us, we're on chapter twelve and 42 days into our 65-Day challenge. I can't believe we've come this far!!

This is the chapter in which Candace addresses the importance of priorities. Why priorities? Because one) God needs to be number one in anything and everything that we do, and two) so many of us put health on the back burner due to a lack of time or it's rank of importance.

I know for a fact that many of you have had bad weeks due to stress--you've said so. And I have to tell you that during these past few weeks I've also dealt with incredible stress. Had it not been for my commitment to this challenge I probably would have taken the easy road and grabbed the nearest bag of potato chips. But that wasn't an option for me, and because I have forced myself to press on, I have learned that it's not only possible to get through stress without a crutch, it's rewarding.

With that thought in mind, these are wise words to ponder:
Set priorities for your goals. A major part of successful living lies in the ability to put things first. Indeed, the reason most major goals are not achieved is that we spend our time doing second things first. --Author Unknown

  1. A "Family Bible"--What a great idea! ~Kim A.

  2. I have really enjoyed reading along with you. I am doing Weight Watchers and by reading this book, it has refocused me and helped me see that apart from God there is no plan that will work. Thanks for the redirection!

  3. I really want the Family Reading Bible! How awesome.

    One of my priorities is teaching my children to live for God. We do a daily devotion before lunch. This Bible would be awesome for that!

  4. One of my priorities has been to to a daily devotion with my kids. This would be great!
