Old School Works™ health & fitness coaching began to develop in my heart and mind in September of 2020. I had been meditating on the "whole man" concept for quite a while and knew full well, from experience, that men (especially Christian men) needed to cultivate and nurture their trinities - body, mind and spirit. Due to things going in in my personal and business life, I had reached a low point in my life spiritually and physically in late 2017. Overweight and out of shape, I could best describe my condition and lethargic and depressed. Cheerful and functioning on the outside, I was merely "going through the motions" of my faith. In early 2018, I became more committed to personal Bible reading and prayer. Later in 2018 I, along with some of my children, discovered that we all carried a genetic defect that increased our risk of certain serious illnesses. This led to more personal reflection and seeking the will of God which led me to fasthing.
As I began to explore fasting more--an ancient practice that, unfortunately, has been largely abandoned by American churches and Christians. At first, I fasted a meal or two, on a weekly basis, solely for spiritual reasons and when praying for the needs of folks in my family. As I began reading and searching, I stumbled across the other benefit if fasting--health. That part of fasting's benefits is what I refer to as "one of God's treats" for his children . . . to be continued.
