Starting Fresh

by Bethany D. (From a talk) I was asked to speak about starting fresh in the new year and finding ways to spiritually assess yourself and recommit.  I did not realize how difficult this topic is for me, and I kept thinking about environmental factors that relate to these topics, so I am going to speak about the importance of environment and how it affects our ability to start fresh in the new year, or at any given time, later in my talk. What can we do to have a fresh start in the new ...

After the Storm

May 20, 2013 A devastating, killer tornado struck. But the lives of this woman and her family were saved forever.  Her husband had left her, and she was in the depth of despair, but the tornado miraculously changed all that.

"God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform." After the Storm &...

Neotame Happiness

The bottle in the picture above contains Neotame.  This is the sweetest substance known to man.  It’s about 10,000 times sweeter than sugar.  It’s a bit hard to imagine how sweet that actually is, so let me illustrate.  A 4.5 gram pile of Neotame (that’s about the mass of a nickel), would have the same sweetness as 100 pounds of sugar.  That’s incredible!  The bottle I have is 2% Neotame dissolved in water.  Even though it’s only 2% Neotame, one drop of it is the same sweetness as a teaspoon...

Eating Radium

In the early 1900’s the radioactive element radium was all the rage.  Discovered in 1898 by Marie and Pierre Curie, it was soon found that by mixing small amounts of radium into paint the items could be made to glow in the dark.  This was extremely useful for cockpit instruments and soon found its way into the watches and clocks of people around the world.
