Selecting the Best Beginner Bicycle

Many people who start thinking about getting into cycling wonder “what is the best beginner bicycle for me?” I went over twenty years without riding a bicycle, and then when I started shopping for a bike I was overwhelmed with all of the different types and prices of bikes to choose from.  At the time, I mainly wanted to find a good bike for a reasonable price, that would be good for some exercise and riding bikes with kids.  It’s now been about two years, and after really getting into cycling and riding many bicycles, here’s my guide to finding

Patience and Faith

So I’m writing this as both testimony and advice. My words are, “Really stay focused on God and not of the idols, false gods and ‘things’ of this world.” You see us believers that are out there trying to do as much for God as we can, need to never forget that his timing is completely different from ours. We need to continue on our missions, but do not pile on conditions or timelines that will produce stress or anxiety on us as God never wants that; When you do often you open the door to the enemy to work

Making Time to Workout

MAKING TIME TO WORKOUT How many times have you ever said, “I just don’t have the time to work out.”I use to say that and not only did I feel I didn’t have the time, I also felt like I didn’t have the energy. My commute back and forth to work puts me on the road three hours. By the time I get home, it’ s time to eat dinner, clean up the kitchen, prepare my child’s lunch for the next day and do whatever else needs my attention. Sound familiar? Then there’s the weekends. Yard work, house cleaning, repairing

In memory of an angel by Todd Alan

In memory of an angel Grandma Putsy I knew Grandma Putsy for 14 years and I must say to you that you were truly an angel God brought into my life, even though I didn’t see it at the time. I must admit that the feeling I had when I was around you was that of true peace and unconditional selfless love. You were always there for me and my family when times were rough to lend a hand, and as I write these words I want you to know that everything you did for us has continued to this

Walking and living in Faith

As I’ve mentioned in my past blogs, I’ve been doing my best to be walking and living in Faith and for this blog, I want to continue with more on that, as a human, faith is always a constant struggle with all the forces in life being thrown at you. I can truly say faith is the only way and what God wants in every one of our hearts. In our lives we tend to think we can do better or perhaps we are trying to show God “Hey I have a better way” and all I can say through

God’s Speed

I went out on one of my training sessions on my bike today to prepare for my long journey coming later this year, and like most training sessions out and about, God allowed me to learn a valuable bit of knowledge from Him again. To start out, my ride consists of a short distance on the side of the 3 lane road that leads to the canal systems that run through the Phoenix Metro area. The canal system is where i really hit it hard and so as I’m riding today, I started off slower this time letting my body

Producers not Consumers

In this blog, I wanted to touch on something I see too little of nowadays, which is giving and random acts of kindness. The world needs more of this especially right now in history…Less Greed as there is more Need! I see people that are really trying to reach out and trying to help, but in the scope of this world we live in, we really need more of it. This doesn’t mean just giving of money but giving time to help others when they need a hand. We live in a very prideful era and couple that along with
