The Body’s Largest Organ: The Skin

With skin covering approximately 22 square feet on the outside surface of the human body, it is the largest human organ and the first line of defense against harmful substances, infections, and dehydration. In adults, the skin is between 15 and 20 percent of total body weight.

Because of its large surface area, the skin can soak in many types of toxins and petrochemicals. This can result in cancer-causing compounds leaching into the body and accumulating in fat.

Many people complain that commercial soaps make their skin feel dry and itchy, or worse. Trapped “free alkali” is the most common irritant in soap, which is made from oils (acids) mixed with water and alkali (a base).

Acids and bases neutralize each other to form salt, in this case soap, with glycerin as a byproduct.

Oils that do not combine with the alkali are “free,” which creates a “superfatted” soap. These mild soaps are exceptionally good for the skin, even though they have a reduced lather and shelf life. Alkali that is not neutralized by essential oils is “free alkali,” which makes soaps harsh and drying.

What are your options?
Orange Blossom Face Wash-This gentle, soap-free facial wash cleanses the skin without stripping natural oils. It contains MSM for softening and Lavender essential oil to soothe skin. I love how it makes my face feel.

The Cost Of Following Jesus

8DFCBE29-59C2-4F4A-A84F-0B1402F339E9

The Martyr’s Oath will challenge you and cause you to stop, think and inspire you to grow deeper in your faith and walk with Jesus. To walk alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ. Every day we are witnessing an astonishing escalation in Christian persecution like we have rarely seen since the first century. Like the stories in the book, we all need to start walking a life that Jesus expects us to, a life willing to die and gain for Christ. Jesus warns us that we will be persecuted for leading a life each day when we follow Him. He said that our lives should not be life of comfort, but of one that we need to listen Him.

Johnnie Moore, like many American Christians, didn’t fully appreciate the extent of what was going on until he witnessed a graduation of theology students in India. Unlike graduation ceremonies here in America- where feel good speeches made by visiting celebrities are expected-this one featured a remarkable oath. It wasn’t an oath to excel. It was an oath to be willing to die, if necessary for the cause of Jesus.

Each chapter is a first hand account of those who are truly ready to die for their faith in Jesus across the Middle East and Africa, but these are more than stories, they are life experiences of real people who faced torture, danger and sometimes death. Your faith will be challenged! Are you ready to stand up for your faith?
