  1. Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, amazing blog!

  2. Hey there! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone 4! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the superb work!

  3. Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!

  4. I truly appreciate this post. I’ve been searching all more than for this! Thank goodness I found it on Bing. You might have made my day! Thank you once more..

  5. I like the part where you say:
    “We come together to share of struggles, our victories our joy and our tears. In sharing our experiences, we draw strength from one another, and individually and corporately we are one step further along in our journey. We acknowledge our similarities as well as our differences, respecting both. We will not always see eye to eye, bit we can always accept one another’s opinions and discuss issues and ideas without resorting to personal attacks.”
    May we all abide by this and sometimes just have to “agree to disagree” about some things.
    Thanks!
    Blessings,
    Jan

    • Dear Jan, I agree with you when it comes to personal differences, like what colour looks best on you or what is the best form of transport etc but when it come to God’s Truth, He tells us we are not to agree to disagree but to bring our differences to Him and He will show us who is in error and we do this by the leading of the Holy Spirit and the confirmation of the Scriptures, our differences are never to be resolved by man’s own understanding or what we believe or have been taught. We are to be in agreement, God is a God of Unity not division, different denominations were never His will. The Holy Spirit does not say one thing to one person and something different to another when it contradicts and if we have the mind of Christ we will be in agreement. But as you said Jan we are not to consider anyone as less then us and we are to Love even our enemies we are people of worth or Jesus would not of died for all of us.

      Philippians 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

      2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

  6. That is the best blog for anyone who desires to seek out out about this topic. You realize so much its nearly arduous to argue with you (not that I really would need…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, simply nice!

  7. Hi Gary. I can connect with many of your points. I have been on the road to recovery for quite some time, not always successfully but still trying. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I really liked reading your post!. Quallity content. With such a valuable blog i believe you deserve to be ranking even higher in the search engines 🙂

  9. Hi Gary, thank you for your heart for others and yes it is a long hard road when you travel it alone, I have much concern or compassion for those who have suffer from eating disorders, I was Bulimic for 10 years and it was no picnic, but unlike those who have Anorexic no one knew, I just got lots of accolades about how good I looked, but I’m sure if they had seen my head in the toot and smelt the vomit, they wouldn’t have been as impressed.

    The focus for a very long time has been what you look like on the outside instead of inner beauty or strength, we are very much influenced by the Media, Hollywood, Models, Beauty pageants, all have set unrealistic examples of what we should be seeking to achieve and how and now they are even presenting on open Media what is very dangerous and life threading as something we should applaud.

    I no longer believe in wearing a mask to be accepted by everyone or seeking to conform to worldly acceptability, I found it got rather heavy after awhile, in fact bigger then I could handle and no diet would have made it lighter. ….Ever thought about the word diet …look at it again… DIE……ET, yes for many years I was in bondage, Die..ting is a mass money making Industry and many are it’s victims but the Lord delivered me and set me free.

    Christian Love Anne.

  10. This weblog is terrific. There is generally all the suitable info at the hints of my fingers. Thanks and maintain up the great work!

  11. Thank you so much for sharing. I really thought I was alone! I would like to say it’s comforting knowing that there are others out there experiencing the same things I am…but I would never even wish this on my worst enemy.
