The word and concept of “core” is
woven throughout our language, meaning
‘a central, basic or essential
part’. Consider the Earth’s core. Science
has found that over geologic time, the liquid inner
core grows as the Earth cools. Studies seem
to allude to the fact that this inner core is what
causes the Earth to stabilize itself in the atmosphere.
The term ‘core’ is also used
in sports medicine. Core Stability Training
is essential to sports performance and injury prevention. The
body’s core muscles are the foundation for
all our movements.
Then there is the core of an apple which
is designed to help the apple hold its shape and
to protect the tiny life-giving seed that rests in
My mission incorporates all of
these concepts. The
core, or the center of anything, is where strength,
stability, and life producing attributes are gained.
I would like to help others have
a clearer understanding of a Christ-centered life: a
Christian core that develops a strong faith built
on the Word of God.
The Bible talks about how humanity
is here today and gone tomorrow (Peter 1:23 and
Isaiah 40). The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the Living Word of God is forever.
Shame and fear are two major
characteristics that contribute to a weak core. If
they can be replaced with salvation and faith, the
human core will be strengthened.
Keeping our spiritual being strong enables
us to cope with whatever life sends our way, as well
as gives us the ability to enrich and encourage other
people in their journey through life.
Let’s build a strong healthy
Christian core together.
