Welcome to the second 30 day challenge! This month’s challenge is:

Get Healthy, Get Happy

If you're on a computer, you're most likely in a first world country. You don't have to worry about starving, and you dont have to worry about hard labor that overworks you to exhaustion. In fact, chances are alot of us have the opposite problem. We often exercise too little and eat too often. Now thats its spring, alot of us will want to do this challenge anyway, so here goes!

(Kudos to anyone who starts this challenge and continues to do the previous challenge as well)

These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.

Level 1: baby steps
Cut your junk food and fast food in half. Go for a 5 min walk everyday. Think about what you are putting into your body and if its an addiction.

Level 2: sprint
Cut out all junk food and fast food. Do basic exercises for 10-20 mins a day. Think about how you are treating the body God gave you.

Level 3: extra mile
Embrace a healthy lifestyle of exercise and healthy food. Encourage friends or family to join you. (Its only 30 days, you can do it!) Draw a motivational poster or an encouraging journal to share.

Submit your journals and artwork here:…

Prayer Request from Snailing-Along
I ask a prayer request for two girls I know. 
The first is Nicole, she is currently in the hospital right now and has been going through a lot lately and went through a lot that convinced her she should end her life. She's a believer of the Lord, but after everything that has happened, I don't know where her spiritual stance is.
Please pray for her in that she keep faith and trust in the Lord no matter what happens in her life, and that He is above everything she may face.
The other girl, Jordan, is not a believer. She's not the most positive person and could use some prayer. Please pray that she realize that she needs the Lord and all of His love and guidance and that only He matters. 
I also ask of you, friends, that you pray for all of those who feel that suicide is the only way to get out of their situation and all of those who feel as if they're worthless or ugly. Please pray for them and please pray that they find the Lord also, that they may see their true worth and that there is definitely a way to rise above their problems and gain true happiness.
Thank you

Prayer Request from LtJJFalcon

This is sort of urgent since I don't know who else to turn to... As of late, my dad hasn't gone to church for 3 years due to a lot of rumors and backstabbing at the church. It's only recent that one of the pastors felt something was wrong and paid a house visit one night. But even after that, I don't think he's willing to go back. Part of the reason is the rumors and the others is his current age and state of mind. He's becoming very distant to the family, not really giving a care about the family and concentrating so hard on work. I feel like we're losing him and only pray that God will somehow bring him back to the church and our relationship is repaired. Also, pray for my sisters as finals are coming for them, especially my younger sister, who is teetering between academic dismissal and passing... And pray for my friend as he's having troubles with his family. Pray that God will be with him and that He will guide him through this time of darkness, whether through me or his co-workers. So please, do pray for us during our hard times...

Prayer Request from SasukePrismaColor

Our pastor told us this morning that he and his wife are being called to Denver, Colorado and we're going to have to select a new pastor in the next few months. Please pray that everything goes well in Colorado for them, and that we can get a new pastor easily without any issues.

Prayer Request from angelgirlsko12

A student at my school ended his life by jumping off one of the buildings. Please pray for comfort for the family, the witnesses, the school, and everyone affected by this loss.

Prayer Request from NuttyNuti

My grandmother will have a heart surgery operation in this month. She says she feels content with it and she trusts on the surgeons, but please pray anyway that the operation and recovery go fine!

Prayer Request from Saraphimwolf

I would like to praise God for the amazing blessing he has given me. I have not been able o fnd a good job for quite some time do to my medical condition and so I had filed for Social Security in 2011. I was denied at fist but appealed it and was given a court date. I attempted to get a lawyer but they dropped me saying I had no chance an so I represented myself at my hearing and the judge was very nice. Today, March 01 2013, I recieved a notice saying that I have been found fully favorable for my claim! Thank you God so much! I really needed this!

Mysticbynd Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013  Professional General Artist
nope, just about being healthy
Brett-Neufeld Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Awesome, I've already taken level 3 for lent, so I'm totally getting in on this.

Lets pray that we take good care of the bodies that God has given us.
Xaolin26 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013  Student General Artist
Cool! I'm already doing somewhere between step 2 and 3! My family is generally healthy, so we eat fresh fruit and vegetables everyday. We don't like to eat out that much.
In terms of exercising, I'll have to start doing that more often.
DragonKazooie89 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I'll try to do level 2 since we don't eat too much fast food unless we are on vacation but is going to be hard because my dad can't eat vegetables without gagging.
ElektraSnibson Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I'm gonna do level One. My mom takes me out to eat so much, and most of our dinners are TV dinners. But the exercise'll be easy.
