Disordered Eating and the Gap Year: Difficulties in Seminary

I am writing this piece from Café Aroma in Israel, where I am working and vacationing. Part of the work I will be doing here includes visiting Agam Hospital where I volunteered, and speaking in colleges and seminaries.

The Power of Speech

When we meet up with someone whom we haven’t seen in a while, one of the first things we generally say is “You look great!” or maybe, “Have you lost weight?” We are culturally accustomed to commenting on appearance and weight, thinking that this is what we should do. Sometimes, though, this sends out a negative message that we may be unaware of. When someone

I recently spent a couple of days at Disneyworld with my sister and brother and their families, who were visiting from Israel. As we walked through the parks, a few of my nephews and nieces independently shared the same observation: “Why are people in America so fat?” While their comment may not be politically correct or sensitively articulated, it is

I’m going to let you in on a little secret, one that you might find surprising given the fact that I’m a personal trainer: I don’t like exercising. In fact, I’d much rather curl up on the couch with a good book and a hot cup of tea. So how do I find the will to get up at 4:30 every morning to work out? How do I make exercising fun and enjoyable, something for
