A Father’s Joy. A Daughter’s Inspiration.

I have been a HisRadio listener since my daughter Abby who is now 15 was born. Nothing beats inspirational music. a few years ago my daughter was dealing with kids bullying her at school. She was lucky enough to be a part of a program called I AM BEAUTIFUL. Through that campaign she learned that she is beautiful on the inside and the outside. She even got to be a part of HisRadio and was interviewed on the air by Rob and Alison. To see her overcome a situation like this  in her life was awesome. I use to be a smoker and my daughter got me to stop smoking 3 packs a day, she also got me to stop biting my fingernails. She has inspired me more then she will ever know. She is one of the main  inspirations for me to do RBL. I look at myself and see a man who is no longer in great health and a self proclaimed Carnivore.  I eat one meal a day and that is usually a big supper and a  late night snack.  I have had several surgeries on my shoulders. I was cleared by therapy but I needed to work on my strength. To top everything off  few years ago my father passed away from brain cancer. He use to run in alot races right up to his death in his 70s. He always wanted to run with my daughter but since he lived in NY it was impossible. My dream out of this program is to be able to finish the 5k with my daughter. I do not care if I walk or run or if I am dragged across the finish line I want to be able to do this and continue to do this through healthy eating and exercise. Abby is my inspiration to do this. It will not be easy but I will do it. God tells us

1 Corinthians 6: 19-20

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

So while this may be a hard journey, after all I did not get this way over night, I must remember my goal. And God gives me strength to do all things.

To everyone who has the privilege to join me on this journey I wish you luck and remember when it gets hard take it 1 day at a time. For those at home who are not on this journey but are reading this I ask you to pray for all of us and I encourage you to examine your health and if its a walk you need to take consider doing so.

Good luck Everyone and God Bless.
