Is Natural Medicine A False God or Anti-Christian? What the Bible Says About Medicine


Magazine articles and news media directed at Christians, and even many Christians themselves, tell us to forgo alternative medicine. They tell us that it’s a false god or anti-Christian. Fortunately, there is plenty of Scripture in God’s Word to help us figure out this issue. So let’s take an honest, Biblical look at this topic using only God’s Word as our guide. But before we do this, I would like to specify that when I say “natural medicine,” I am […]

Learning About Biblical Modesty From The Duggars


Before the announcement of their pregnancy with precious baby Josie hit the media in 2009, I had the most amazing, inspiring privilege of my freelance writing career–interviewing Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar over the telephone. I was contracted to write an article on Biblical modesty for a Christian magazine and thought, “Who better to ask about this than the Duggars?!” During our hour and a half conversation, I gained more than just the information I needed for an article on […]

Natural Help for Depression–A Physical & Spiritual Illness


Over on HFFG’s Facebook page, we covered the topic of depression recently. It is a topic that is near and dear to my heart as many of my closest family and friends suffer from this devastating illness. It’s clearly something that is near and dear to God’s heart too, as His word is full of references to it. Jesus’ whole mission was to give us something that we can not have when depression takes over our lives: The thief comes […]

Jesus Still Heals (without the help of doctors)


Eight years ago, my body began to develop a skin rash. It started in inconspicuous places on my body and eventually grew worse. I did not know ANYTHING about health and nutrition like I do now, so what did I do? Well when it finally spread to my hands and face, I went to the doctor. I figured it was only a problem when it was visible to others, even though I was in agony over the constant itch. And […]

Taking The Unpopular Route of Stewardship


In his book, The Treasure Principle, Randy Alcorn shares a story: “I know a single man who came to Christ in his twenties, read the Scriptures, and got so excited that he decided to sell his house and give the money to God.  But when he shared this plan with older believers in his Bible-study group, something tragic happened: They talked him out of it.” Have you ever had a fellow brother or sister in Christ talk you out of […]

The Bread We ALL Need


Everyone’s dietary needs are different.  Some people stay healthy by avoiding grains.  Some people stay healthy by eating whole grains.  And some people have found health by remaining gluten-free. But there’s a bread we ALL need. . . the Word of God.  And many of us are not getting it as often as we’re getting physical food. A while back, I made it a practice to try and read my Bible while eating each meal.  I used to confine my […]

When Faith and Sports Begin To Collide


Let me start off with my favorite saying: “I am the wretch the song refers to.”  That’s me.  Not because I was a teen mom, because I used to smoke and swear, or because I followed the ways of the world so obediently.  I AM the wretch now because my heart wants to keep serving itself.  In the words of the apostle Paul: I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do […]

In Medicine We Trust


In Medicine We Trust ‎”We have not lost faith, but we have transferred it from God to the medical profession.” – George Bernard Shaw As I search God’s word more, it never ceases to amaze me what I find. Recently, a discovery of modern medicine’s roots was revealed.  In the past, I was just like the average American, eating whatever I wanted without thinking about it and taking my regular trips to the doctor for “remedies.” But in my heart […]
