Folic Acid – An Overview

by: Whitney Lasseter

Folic Acid, also know as Vitamin B9, assists in preventing certain birth defects of the spinal cord and brain known as neural tube defects (NTDs). Without a sufficient amount of Folic Acid the cells that form the baby’s brain and spine become deficient resulting in spina bifida (open spine) or anencephaly (undeveloped brain). There are over 4,000 births defects annually as a direct result of insufficient Folic Acid in the Mother’s body. Folic Acid should be taken prior to conception since these births defects begin in the first month of pregnancy.

Making the Faith/Hope Connection

by: Cory L. Kemp

You have hope in your life, expectations, desires, a feeling of confidence in what you intend for your life. You know where you want your hope to lead you. But what is the path that you will need to create to continue your journey? What is the connection from hope to faith, and faithful living?
Going back to Hebrews 11 we discover some clues. After gathering the evidence of Abel, Abraham and Sarah’s faith, we are reminded that they died before the promises made to them were actually manifested, “But having seen it and greeted it from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth,” they did understand and name their legacy to us. “For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland...

Flirting For A Long-Term Relationship

Flirting For A Long-Term Relationship

by: Sharon Jacobsen

Have you ever wondered why we flirt? I mean, we’ve all done it at some time but it’s one of those things that we do without really giving any though to why or how.

What Women Want

What Women Want

by: Irene Segal

Women in business and the professions continue to change the face of the North American economy. Women are starting more businesses than men and are twice as likely to remain in business than their male counterparts. Career women are thriving and are making a positive impact on the economy.

The biggest hurdle women have to climb is being able to reach old aged without depleted resources or not having enough money to live out their lives.

What is Reiki?

What is Reiki?

by: Sam Stevens

Reiki is an ancient form of energy healing in which a properly attuned Reiki Practitioner serves as a conduit for Universal Life Force (or ReiKi). The Reiki practitioner opens them self up as a conduit for a semi-sentient energy summoned from a higher source to facilitate healing or correct a person’s aura.

B) Semi-Permanent Colors: They don’t actually lift the color-you can either vary the tone within your natural highlights or go darker. The color can last up to 20 washes and will softly fade as you shampoo, causing no re-growth problem.
C) Semi-Permanent Vegetable Colors: Contain only vegetable extracts and natural ing...
