I’ll update this page regularly with the resources that I use to find most of my information.
A Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren (Saddleback Church)
God of the Underdogs by Mathew Keller (Next Level Church)
Let me know if you’re looking for a church in your area and I’ll try to help you find what you’re looking for!
The bible (read the book of Daniel in the old testament- front half of the bible, it’s a short book)
The Daniel Plan by Rick Warren
Documentaries- (most can be found on Netflix)
Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue
Getting Started (Exercise)-
My favorite program right now, for newbies, is the couch to 5k plan. It is a very basic starter program which takes you through what to run from day one all the way through a 5k. I recommend that you purchase a ticket for a fun 5k happening in your area a few months from now to give you incentive to keep up with it!
Stop by your local gym and ask to sit down with a trainer so they can advise you on a plan tailored for your needs.
Get out! The most important part of exercise is that it become routine. When the weather is nice, lace up your shoes, open your door and just go out. Maybe you’ll run, walk, or skip… who knows. Spend some time in the sun and fresh air. Take music with you, or maybe a book on your ipod, maybe you just need some silence after work!
Healthcare in America-
Healthcare Delivery in the United States by Anthony Kovner & James Knickman
(It’s difficult to give one book, because our system is so complex. This book is one of the required readings from my MHA program in the first year and does a good job giving an overview.)
Clean Food and Clean Start by Terry Walters These were the books that started me on this track. Terry mixes a wonderful amount of knowledge about foods and spices in with childhood stories of her mother’s kitchen and recipes too.
Engine 2 Diet By Rip Esselstyn One of my greatest resources! If this guy can convert a Texas firehouse to plant-based eating… he can convert you too!
Dave Ramsey (on the radio Monday-Friday locally but also has a podcast of his shows)
