If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time. I watched a short strength training video the other day (yeah, that’s what I do in my free time) about the importance of setting and pursuing goals for training. The presenter, Brooke Haubenstricker, of Starting Strength Online Coaching™, a strength training and education company, talked about the relationship between training and goals.
When it comes to outward style, girls easily allow themselves to conform to something fixed or molded into a general pattern of what others would expect. Even becoming a cookie cutter expression of someone else’s opinions. Since all of us love God and are continually maturing in His love for us, how can we venture out into some new clothing styles without getting vain? To develop our own style, but still enjoy the trends?
We all create the perfect idea of what our first date would consist of. Whether it is something extravagant such as a walk on the beach or something more calming such as getting coffee, the ideas girls design become limitless.

The Strength PE classes and FC Barbell Club participated in the first ever FC Strength Lifting Meet recently. It was an opportunity for the students to approach lifting weights in a competitive situation. Competitive weight lifting has existed for centuries, if not milenia, in some form or other.
Juniors Annabelle Messer and Megan LeBlanc begin the blog series, “Girl Talk” covering issues spotlighting the triumphs and struggles from the female perspective. They published their first blog, Oct. 5. We look in the mirror and our insecurities consume our vision. We take one more glance as we pull away and realize what we are not. This is an issue all teenage girls face. For hours, teens scroll through social media and see the 'perfect' models as they pose for the camera. With no acne, no body fat, plus confidence, everyone wishes they could become them.
Israel is identified as the “Holy Land” by Jews, Christian and Muslims. According to Tourism Ministry a record 2.1 million people visited Israel in the first half of 2018. Israel is not only a religious destination but also a vacation and business spot. The Dead Sea and the beaches of Tel Aviv attract many vacationers. Religious destinations are the main attractions though for study tours and other church focused trips. The Well Community Church has made over 9 trips to Israel. Teaching pastors take a group of people on a twelve day experience around the country, discovering ancient cities and the foundation that the Christian church was built on.
Many if not most gym-goers, especially those who are members of the typical commercial exercise gym/club, engage in resistance based exercise using isolation exercises primarily or exclusively. They go from machine to machine in a circuit, doing one or more sets of many different isolation movements. If their goal is just to exercise (that is, do physical activity which produces a transient physiological response which does not necessarily contribute to long term improvement--see blog post #2) and pursue general physical well-being, that approach is fine. It cannot, however, induce meaningful transformation in strength for a couple of reasons.
November is underway, winter sports are kicking off and Christmas break is just visible over the horizon. As fall ends and the days become shorter, students look forward to the festivities of the holidays and time away from school.
As Thanksgiving break approaches, it provides a great opportunity for students to take advantage of their free time by dedicating some of it to begin or complete their college applications if they have not already done so. Evangelina Tello recommends seniors apply early in the application process to meet all deadlines. Starting on Nov. 1, the University of California (UC) application opened for students to apply and submit their application to the UC of their choice. Seniors are strongly encouraged not to procrastinate completing their desired applications.
