    Obesity - An Epidemic Affecting Children and Adults

    in Health

    Quoting the American Psychological Association; Excess weight and obesity in childhood and adolescence has become a serious public health concern in the United States. The “obesity epidemic” has particularly exploded in the last 25 years. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the prevalence of obesity has more than doubled among children ages two to five (5 percent to 12.4 percent) and ages six to 11 (6.5 percent to 17 percent). In teens ages 12 to 19, prevalence rates have tripled (5 percent to 17.6 percent). 


    This has significant implications for the life expectancy of obese youth who are likely to experience higher rates of hypertension, elevated cholesterol, and Type 2 diabetes than their parents. This may be the first generation to have a shorter life expectancy than the one immediately before them. There is some encouraging news that growth in childhood obesity prevalence has slowed in recent years, however serious efforts are still required to fully reverse the trend.


    From a study in West Virginia - According to the National Institutes of Health, obesity and overweight together are the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States, close behind tobacco use. An estimated 300,000 deaths per year are due to the obesity epidemic.


    So what can be done? Listen in and find out...

    Focus On Film: Church, Children and Humanity...

    in Movies

    Recently in the news, God fearing church members welcomed in a young man who would later deliberately kill them. We hear of children arming themselves with weapons, they shouldn't be able to obtain, in order to senselessly murder classmates, friends,family, and in some cases, themselves. We all want to know why; the reasons are never going to be enough. Our program is a movie based broadcast, so we'll be discussing a few films, that touch on similar random acts of violence, that continue to plague our society and weaken our humanity: 4 Little Girls, Elephant and if time permits, Heathers. The sad thing is...these films are all over ten years old. Please join film critics Larry Domkowski (Must See Movies), Karen D. (The Movie Maven) and me Greg Morgan (Reel Movie Guy) for this, our next episode of "A Reel Point Of View".

    Where Are The Children of This Generation Headed

    in Christianity

    No Kids Pics are displayed to protect their pravicy.


    According to Director James Comey, “The FBI remains vigilant in its efforts to eradicate predators from our communities and to keep our children safe.” In addition to working with our law enforcement partners to publicize the names and faces of missing children, the Bureau undertakes a variety of efforts to help rescue the most vulnerable of victims


    On May 25, 1979, 6-year-old Etan Patz disappeared while walking to his school bus stop in New York. Four years later, to honor Etan’s memory and the memories of other missing children, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25—the anniversary of Etan’s disappearance—as National Missing Children’s Day.


    Tragically, however, children continue to disappear, and as we approach National Missing Children’s Day 2015, the FBI would like to ask the public for its continued help in locating any of the young victims pictured above from our Kidnapping and Missing Persons webpage.

    SPIRITUAL ENGINEERING'S PERSONALITY UNIFICATION CAMP FOR CHILDREN

    in Spirituality

    Tom and Patty Strawser are Founders of Spiritual Engineering, the new science for happiness and extraordinary relationships. They have introduced these groundbreaking concepts through lectures, seminars, and couching in China, Mexico, the Middle East and the US. Currently, they are working on a fascinating project: PERSONALITY UNIFICATION CHILDREN CAMP. The goal is to introduce children to the Natural Order of Relationships© - an innovative approach and a curriculum to build these relationships. Together, and in collaboration with a growing number of volunteers, they are facilitating four Children's Camps this summer:
    1. First session: Building Relationships and Finding Happiness
    2. Second Session: Find a Higher Power - Access the
    3. Third Session: Developing Healthy Self-Love
    4. Fourth Session: Relationships and Loving Service


    In addition to these formal activities, children will participate in silent walks and meditation to practice silence and reflection through meditation, contributing to the creation of healthy habits, decision-making and emotional self-control. The daily sessions of one hour duration-of "walking in silence" include an "inspiring" word, which reflects "the fruits of the divine spirit" designed to encourage reflection and personal growth. These fruits are: Loving Service, Unselfish Devotion, Courageous Loyalty, Forgiving Tolerance, Merciful Ministry, Unfailing Goodness, Enduring Peace, and Endless Hope.


    Music, painting, drawing, poetry and dramatization give childrn the inspiration and opportunity to express themselves. Exploring nature in all its glory, setting up their own tents, the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, the indescribable magnificence of the starry night skies, the songs of birds, the singing of coyotes at night provide the perfect setting to introduce children to "Worshipful Problem Solving."
