They developed the use of rubber and canvas (which made the footwear lighter than metal spikes) for track and field contestants. Jesse Owens (four-time Olympic gold medalist in 1936) was convinced by the brothers to wear a pair of their (hand-made) canvas with spiked rubber bottom sneakers for the 1936 Summer Olympics.

Spirituality/Religion And Health



A Healthy Spirit

When you meet someone who is spiritually healthy, usually; you’re immediately drawn to that person. You feel good just by being around them. These people are magnets for happiness, freedom and generosity, and have a unique ability to enjoy the present moment. Most people desire to live a prosperous and happy life. We all have the ability to chose the path of less resistance. No matter your choice (spiritual or religious) the decision belongs to you and only you…spirituality-religion-health

You have to find out what direction best suits who you are and what is relevant to your desires. Being spiritually healthy, is the ultimate high. Most people around you will recognize your demeanor as a positive flowing personality. In many cases they will gravitate to you and feel free to discuss any topic with you. You would be looked upon as easily approachable…

One way of achieving true spiritual satisfaction is by following your heart’s desires.

Most people are inherently good people and tend not to pay attention to their needs. We should recognize that in the grand scheme of things, most of what we think matters….doesn’t it? When you distinguish what your vision is – and therefore acknowledge what you need to do, document it (write it down). On the off chance that it is varied – or even the contrary – of what you are (as of now) doing, think about how that affects you. If it makes you feel awkward, congrats! Moving out of your usual range of familiarity implies you are going to accomplish something significant.

You are now at a point in your life  that you will take in more than any time in recent memory! It’s time to consider a viewpoint of dedication, about that with the goal that dread isn’t the main thing you feel. We have frequently been educated to fear the obscure, which makes a considerable lot of us endeavor to “control the result” of all that we do. However this keeps us bolted up inside and playing little. Pursuing your heart’s wants is BIG and keeping in mind that it’s frightening, it can likewise be extremely energizing!


James 1:26-27

If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

New Year Resolutions



The Bible doesn’t mention making resolutions at the beginning of a new year–but it does urge us to examine our lives regularly, and to seek God’s help to become better persons every day.

Some Resolutions to consider

  1. Engage with people more than technology.
  2. Take your soul seriously.
  3. Increase your kindness.
  4. Choose someone to forgive.
  5. In forgiving, include yourself.

Lamentations 3:40.

“Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord”

Every January, millions of people begin their year with New Year’s resolutions. Losing weight, getting organized (my email is a mess), exercising more, eating healthier, and managing finances better are some of the most common resolutions. But what about making spiritual New Year’s resolutions?

We make commitments and tell our friends and family on January 1st, only to give it all up by January 3rd. But as humans, our struggle for consistency goes way beyond resolutions. Making commitments we can’t keep runs all through society, back to Biblical times. In the Bible, James spoke of some people who can teach us a valuable lesson about great intentions that aren’t aligned with God’s will:


Philippians 4:13

“I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”

John 15:5

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”


If God is the center of your New Year’s resolution, it has chance for success, depending on your commitment to it. If it is God’s will for something to be fulfilled, He will enable you to fulfill it. So, if a resolution is not God honoring and/or is not in agreement in God’s Word, we will not receive God’s help in fulfilling the resolution.


1 Timothy 6:11

As we begin this new year, pause right now and ask God to show you what He wants to do in your life during this coming year. Resolve to grow closer to Christ every day, and with the help of His Holy Spirit to “pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness”

General definition of harassment: Aggressive pressure or intimidation

Reason vary as to why most people don’t say anything about being harassed, usually they’re afraid of retaliation.

Bully Harassment

One of the issues that many of us deal with while growing up is bullying harassment. Bullying is unwanted behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated over time with the intent to cause harm. Bullying behavior may include: making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and deliberately excluding someone from a group. Bullying harassment is common, but that does not mean that it should be acceptable. It is a good idea to teach your children ways to avoid bullies, and also to teach them to treat others with respect. Regardless of where the behavior started or who started the conflict, it is behavior that no one wants to have as a “norm” in our schools. Thus, addressing incidents of bullying and harassment proactively and/or re actively, immediately and effectively, is crucial in transforming these kinds of behaviors into more positive behaviors in our schools. Indeed, it is possible for some who have been harassed to become bullies themselves in some situations.
