Prayer Request for June's Father

Requesting Prayer

Over the past year, we have receive numerous requests for the FREE Prayer Book. With these requests, some of you have asked our intercessory team consisting of June Armstead, Opal Armstead (my mom), Debra Robinson, Barbara Starks, LaDonna Slade and Denise Johnson to pray for you and your family member's needs. Diligently bringing your precious petitions before The Father is a pleasure, as well as an honor.

Today, I have a prayer request for my father, James Armstead. He was transported to the hospital by ambulance yesterday morning (5/13/2010) due to heart complications and not breathing. Would you please keep my family in your prayers as we trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for my daddy's healing and complete recovery.
 
Due to this family emergency, The Pampering With A Purpose event on Sunday, May 23rd is postponed until further notice. I will also contact clients regarding upcoming appointments. 

Again, I thank you so much for your prayers.

Home Manicure Tips


Properly groomed fingernails are not only attractive, they are practical. While maintaining your nails, keep in mind that with a great manicure, you are less likely to have to repair them later.

Painting your fingernails is an art and it's fun! This do-it- yourself fingernail guide is intended for those who don't have the time to visit a manicurist and wish to do it at home, or simply don't want to spend the money. Remember, your hands will show age before the rest of your body. Take care of them, keep them moisturized and well manicured -- and you can defy the experts.

Filing and Buffing Your Fingernails

Before you begin an at-home manicure, Place your metal nail tools in an antiseptic solution for about 15 minutes to kill any bacteria and germs.

- Remove your old polish before you begin.

- Never file the nail in a back and forth motion. Instead, go from side to side, in one direction.

- Your nails should be shaped into oval tips.

- Buff the surface of the fingernail after filing.

Top Reasons to Get Moving

1. Lift your mood. Exercise relieves anxiety and depression in men and women of all ages. In college students, recreational fitness activities relieve stress-related symptoms.
 
2. Protect your heart. Exercise increases the supply of oxygen to the heart by expanding existing arteries and creating tiny new blood vessels. It may also prevent blood clots from forming.

3. Sleep better. Exercise helps people fall asleep faster, sleep longer, and sleep better, possibly by relaxing muscles or reducing stress.
 
4. Cut colon cancer risk. Active people have lower rates of colon cancer, possibly because exercise increases the rate at which waste moves through the colon.
 
5. Lower blood pressure. If your blood pressure isn't high, exercise will keep it that way. If it is, regular exercise can lower it.
 
6. Get strong. Exercise increases the circulation of blood in the muscles, so they become firmer, function more smoothly, and are capable of withstanding more strain.
 
7. Lower the risk of gallstones. In women (who are more likely to develop gallstones than men), exercise greatly reduces the incidence of gallstones and the need for surgery to remove them.
 
8. Burn calories. Exercise helps speed up metabolism, build more lean body mass, and prevent obesity.
 
9. Strengthen your bones. Exercise, especially strength training, increases bone density and prevents osteoporosis.
 
10. Put more life in your years—and possibly more years in your life. Physical activity slows the aging process, so you remain healthier and more active for a longer time. If you work out often and vigorously enough, you can actually extend your life span.

Correct Your Body Image and Start Loving Your Body Again!

I remember being 6 years old and sitting at home on the floor with my legs stretched out in front of me. I was looking at my legs and thinking they were cute and perfect. Not in a conceited way - I just loved my body. I also remember staring close into the mirror at my eyes and marveling at the little lines and different colors in the iris, and watching my pupils dilate and contract. I was amazed at my body. It didn't occur to me to care how I looked to anyone else.

But by the time I was 13 I was wearing makeup, plucking my eyebrows, shaving my legs, dressing to highlight my curves, and exercising to try to get that right body shape. What had caused this change? At that age, all of my peers had become aware of the opposite sex and were starting to have boyfriends. Many were having sex. Everyone was trying to be more attractive than the others. I felt like I had to compete with other girls to attract a boyfriend. I had to look like the women in the music videos if any boy was ever going to like me. Whoever didn't meet the standard when it came to beauty and fashion was falling behind socially. I felt that society imposed this standard and it was reinforced by everyone around me, even the adults, who encouraged me to look more attractive and grown-up.

If it isn't hard enough already, the standard for beauty continues to be raised. It has now become impossible to keep up with the best of them without multiple surgeries and spending the bulk of your time and money focused on your appearance. Not only is this impractical, it is also unhealthy and a waste of our life. Do we feel different about ourselves because of this impractical standard of beauty?

A 2003 study found that exposure to a few fashion models could have a significant effect on body image ideals. College students were separated into two equal groups. One group was shown images of thin models while the other group was shown images of plus-size models. They were then asked to choose the ideal body size for women.

Perception of the body image ideal was thinner for those who saw thin models in comparison to those who saw plus-size models. In both the thin and plus-models conditions, women's ratings of the ideal was thinner than men's ratings.

According to a 2008 body survey in the UK magazine Fabulous, women say their ideal body size is a US size 6. When asked, the men said they thought the ideal female body size should be a US size 10.

It was found in an earlier college study that young women systematically overestimate men's preference for a thin female ideal, whereas young men overestimate women's preference for a heavier and muscular male ideal. Also, most people sought a significantly thinner ideal than their current weight, no matter their age.

A study in 2000 found that with the media constantly reinforcing idealized norms of attractiveness and thinness, repeated comparison with these norms obviously explains the formation of distorted self-ideals. But what was interesting was not everyone was equally vulnerable to the internalization of these norms. It was proven that many women are able to either simply reject it, or take a more multidimensional view of the self, in which the ideal body image is assigned less importance.

Well, it's time for all women to take that more multidimensional view. Why are we women so hard on ourselves when it comes to body image? We've established that we're harder on ourselves than we need to be to attract men. This is because we're comparing ourselves to the images we see in the media. Let's stop worrying so much about looks, and start living! After all, the bulk of our appearance is dictated by genetics and can't be changed. Why worry about what we can't change? Let's get back to that self-love that is based upon the wonder and natural beauty of the body, and not on what men or others might think of us.
