February 13, 2014 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE: with Pro Baseball Coach and Author Billy Horton.

THIS WEEK'S MESSAGE: Spiritual health is important for the overall well-being of a person as it constitutes the physical and mental health to complete the holistic health philosophy. Numerous scientific studies have suggested that diverse aspects of spirituality contribute to better health, better quality of life, and a longer life. Spirituality is unique to each individual. Your “spirit” usually refers to the deepest part of you, the part that lets you make meaning of your world. Your spirit provides you with the revealing sense of who you are, why you are here and what your purpose for living is. It is that innermost part of you that allows you to gain strength and hope.

Billy Horton is a current minor league hitting coach with the San Francisco Giants. Even though he was cut his freshman year in high school, he eventually earned a college baseball scholarship and played in the Minor Leagues from 1997-2000. Billy has 15 years of coaching experience and has worked in nearly every level of the game from youth baseball up to the professional ranks. 7 Day Fast is a transparent look into Billy's life over a seven day period in the autumn of 2011. It chronicles the difficulties he endures as well as the small daily victories he achieves as he searches for God's will during an extremely difficult time in his family's life. During the fast, he fully comes to understand that it is God's strength that he needs to rely on, not his own, which opens the door for the Lord to perform miraculous works in his life.
