A balanced life is a healthy life

Welcome to the C3 Strong blog. What is C3 Strong you ask? Well it stands for Catholic Christian to the Core and it is a program to help you develop a well balanced life. There are three aspects of every person's life that need to be constantly maintained; our mind, body and soul. This is where C3 Strong comes into play. This voluntary program will be an opportunity set weekly goals in all three areas and to work towards each of them over a 6 week period. Each week we will post a set of articles to help you achieve your goals or come up with new ones. It is important to remember that our desire is to become the best person God created us to be through His Grace. Thus this program should not be seen as a competition but as a means of holding ourselves accountable to the desire to grow in holiness.

I have often said that our spiritual and physical lives mirror each other in many ways. If we don't continue to work at it, both our bodies and souls will become weak; we call this sloth. It also helps to have someone to help you maintain a healthy balance and who can encourage you along the way.

We would ask that you would set goals in all three areas that can be evaluated at the end of the week. Consistency is the key to growth and so as you pray about your goals realize that the purpose of this program is to allow God's grace to work with your nature and help you to become a better person. It is also helpful to have a partner to keep you accountable.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or leave a message for the group on here. It is important for us to keep each other in prayer and to encourage one another along the way.
