 The Daniel Plan - Starting Monday, November 3 Minimize

The Daniel Plan is framed around The Essentials: Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus and Friends – life areas that all work together to restore and sustain your long-term health. Faith is the foundation with God as the source of the power and the energy behind all transformational change. As you follow The Daniel Plan, you will discover that you have a part to play in getting healthier, but God will energize your efforts. We have learned that doing The Daniel Plan in community, with a group of friends is the “secret sauce”. People who do the program together lose 50% more weight!

We're going to be starting a new Daniel Plan study next week on Monday, November 3, at 6:30 in Room 209.  Please plan to join us for a refresher or pick up those sessions missed during the summer.  Remember, there is no failure with The Daniel Plan.  None of us are on this journey alone, and none of us can succeed on our own.  It's only with God's power that we are able to make the right choices the first time and again and again and again.

The class is free.  Recommended purchases: book $25, devotional/journal $15. 

If you have questions, please contact Amy Jo Kerr at kajbkerr@msn.com.

Second Chances Explored at Lifetree Café

How to bounce back after a setback will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Sunday at 10:00 A.M. and Thursday at 7:00 P.M.    

The program, titled “Second Chances: From Down and Out to Up and at ’Em,” features the filmed story of author and entrepreneur Weldon Long.

A high school dropout and addict, Long was in prison the third time when he decided to change the direction of his life.                                                                         

“I was desperate, and desperate men do things,” says Long. “I became obsessed with changing the course of my destiny…and I did.”

Lifetree participants will consider the techniques Long employed to make the changes that gave him a second chance at life.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversations about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Paige Chapman at 279-0826 or pchapman@wdmumc.org.
