Moms and Dads, this ones for you. Ear infections are the number one reason for antibiotic prescription in infants and young children, so what do you need to be aware of?

My purpose is to be happy, healthy, vibrant, and to teach others to do the same. If you are healthy you can be a better citizen, spouse, parent, worker, and friend. You have more energy to devote to your purpose and vision, more years to achieve your goals, and more time on earth to enjoy your loved ones. This is how we build better communities, one healthy family at a time

Today I would like to share a story with you from an unknown author. It is applicable in many ways, but as you are reading it, think of yourself as the carpenter of your body. You hold within you the power to lead a long, healthy life if you use the right materials and the right effort. God supplied the blueprint, and daily we provide the materials to rebuild. Build wisely, and live abundantly.
