Pastor Natalie says.......
"Fighting obesity and disease begins with Faith, a fork, knife, spoon and our sneakers" Faith in Action. "Faith without healthy food choices high in plant based meals, fresh, real and non processed food, water, portion control and daily fitness is not healthy." In the scriptures James 2:17 states faith without works is dead/useless (in other words is not healthy for the mind, body or spirit).
