Encourage one another, though it might get messy

June 27, 2018 / by / 1 Comment

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:11) Pastor Jim Miller GCU Corporate Chaplain I’ve lived out of the snow now for 20 years, and I’d be overjoyed if God never gives me the pleasure of shoveling it again. But having grown up in Pennsylvania and having spent the bulk of my life in winter wonderlands, I’ve had lots of chances to help people whose cars were stuck in the snow. The secret is to rock the car. If you don’t, the tires just spin and you don’t go anywhere. In one case, I was pushing from the rear fender of a car, the driver gunned the engine, and the tire I was behind spun through the snow into the mud underneath, spewing a ton of mud behind the car where I was pushing — cold, wet mud. Talk about fun. At chapel last week, I said that the word the New Testament writers use for “encourage” actually means “to come alongside someone in their need.” It is in fact the same word Jesus uses to describe the Holy Spirit — the “one who comes alongside us.” When you push a […]

Dr. Deb’s Mental Health Vitamin: Talking communication

June 26, 2018 / by / 0 Comment

By Dr. Deb Wade GCU Vice President, Counseling and Psychological Services “Honey, we need to talk.”  Yikes! Those are some of the most dreaded words in the English language. That statement might just be as ominous as, “Do these pants make me look fat?” I’m not trying to be sexist here, but both of those statements can make men want to run for the hills — and for good reason. Communication is a worn-out, overly discussed, sometimes boring topic that can make the most tolerant among us roll our eyes.  Nevertheless, let’s dive in and talk about communication. What makes for great communication? Be a good listener. The most important part of communicating is listening. When one person is a good listener, the other will be a good communicator. Great listening is about the whole body, by the way. We hear with our ears, but we LISTEN with our whole bodies. Lean in, give great eye contact, make appropriate facial expressions that prove you are tuned in, nod occasionally to show you are following every word, and offer verbal probes. Check in with yourself right now. You are probably somewhat aware of sounds around you that you are hearing — an air conditioner […]

Fitness Facts: Fourth of July safety tips

June 26, 2018 / by / 0 Comment

By Connie Colbert Director, Canyon Health and Wellness Clinic With the Fourth of July just a week away, here are a few tips to keep you and your family safe — including a few fire tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency: Be sure fireworks are legal in your area before using or buying them. Always have an adult supervise fireworks activities and never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks. Sparklers alone account for one quarter of emergency room fireworks injuries. If you set off fireworks, keep a bucket of water handy in case of malfunction or fire. If fireworks malfunction, don’t relight them! Do soak them with water then throw them away. Never ignite fireworks in a container, especially one that is glass or metal. Use your grill well away from your home and deck railings, and out from under branches or overhangs. Open your gas grill before lighting. Periodically remove grease or fat buildup in trays below your gas or propane grill so it cannot be ignited. Declare a 3-foot “kid- and pet-free zone” around the grill to keep them safe. Avoid loose clothing that can catch fire when cooking on the grill. Here are some additional […]
