This week's giveaway:
Tired of Being Sick & Tired by Dr. Michael Berglund

Are you ready to lose weight, get healthy, and find your energy again?

So many people wonder why they constantly deal with a lack of energy. The answer could be a low-functioning thyroid—even when blood tests say otherwise.

In Tired of Being Sick and Tired, Dr. Michael Berglund addresses the surprising hidden reasons why you, like so many other people, may be struggling to overcome exhaustion, depression, and weight gain.

If your thyroid isn’t working properly, you can eat perfectly, take your vitamins, and still feel sick. What’s worse, the typical blood test to determine low-functioning thyroid doesn’t always give you the whole picture. Dr. Berglund explains the truth that your doctor may not be telling you, including:

  • What tests you should ask for if you suspect your thyroid is the culprit behind your fatigue
  •  How traditional thyroid treatments can lead to the thyroid gland becoming even less productive 
  •  How healthy eating and a new approach to nutrition can put you back on the path to great health

Michael Berglund, DC, is in private practice at Berglund Health & Wellness Center in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He has a board eligible chiropractic internist with a doctor of chiropractic degree from National University of Health Sciences and a degree in medical technology (laboratory medicine) from Michigan Technological University. In practice since 1991, Dr. Berglund specializes in natural treatments, relying heavily on diet modifications and nutrition.

Oh yes. So much of what you have written is the case. Doctors did not know what was wrong. One finally said, "Just eat 900 calories a day. If it is a piece of cake and it is 900 calories that is your intake for the day. Your body is shutting down and we don't know why. Just loose the weight." Ten years later after much suffering, much guilt, and shame God sent a homeopathic nurse from Switzerland that told me what to do and how to get help. When tested by another doctor I had very little thyroid function. All that saw the test results said the fact I was alive was a miracle. The fact I was walking was even more incredible. Today is a new day. I am victorious through Divine intervention.

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :)


As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it!

What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which is u…

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real."

After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just keeping …

What To Do First to Make a Profit

Today on Seth Godin's blog, he said:

It's tempting to decide to make a profit first, then invest in training, people, facilities, promotion, customer service and most of all, doing important work. In general, though, it goes the other way.
Yes, it does. If you are waiting to make a profit before you do these things, in my experience you're  not going to make a profit. So many organizations, ministries and churches are struggling with financial issues. I know your pain. As anyone who follows our story knows, our ministry was in a ton of debt four years ago when I came on as director.  Since that time, we've gotten out of debt and turned a profit every year.  God has done amazing things through out team, for which we give Him the glory!

I find that what Seth is saying here is absolutely true, with one disclaimer. For Christian leaders, spiritual disciplines must always be first. Before we started investing and training and all of that, seeking God for his blessing and…
