Watch Your Mouth By Donna Shepherd NABBW’s Inspiration Expert Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies (Psalm 34:13 niv). An elderly woman has been in the news today.

Fracking: A Clear and Present Danger By Diane MacEachern NABBW’s Going Green Expert I don\’t like to exaggerate the impacts of the many environmental issues we face.

Need a Kick in the Tush? 8 Tips for Living a Balanced Life By Janice Taylor NABBW’s Expert on Weight Loss and Hypnotism When I imagine what it looks like to live a balanced life, two thoughts come to mind. The first is the “Jack theory”: All work and no play makes for a cranky Jack. All this and no that — too much of this and too little of that — just doesn\’t work.
