Health Workshop: Temples of Praise

This past Tuesday night, we had a Ladies Ministries Meeting at our church, Heritage Bible Church. Katie Gerdt was our keynote speaker (you may remember some of her musings about God & Beauty that I’ve posted on the blog previously). She shared her personal testimony concerning a right view of food and biblical stewardship of our bodies and gave a challenge from the Word. The topic was “Temples of Praise: Worshiping God in How We Care for Our Bodies.” Here are the slides from her presentation:

After the presentation, we had healthful snacks:

  • Fresh vegetables and hummus
  • Baked pita crackers
  • Yogurt with fresh berries and granola
  • Chocolate Beet Cupcakes (we had the ladies guess what fruit or vegetable was hidden in these chocolate cupcakes and drew a name from the correct answers to win a copy of one of the books referenced throughout the evening)

We concluded the evening with a panel discussion, followed by fellowship and one-on-one Q&A. It was a privilege to be part of such an event. I only wish we had more time. Hopefully, Heritage will host another one of these workshops soon!
