I too am a face sweater. I can't even explain how humiliating it has been. This is the first product in a long (and expensive) line of products that has actually worked. When applied this does itch and tingle aggressively for a few hours but I have found that sitting under a fan and not touching the application area helps. The next morning my face feels pretty tight but that feeling subsides within 36 hours. All this said, to me this is a small price to pay for having my dignity back.
I find that with showering, face washing and applying face creams this lasts me a solid 5 days.
So I love to read, especially books that challenge me and the way that I'm living. Radical by David Platt has done exactly that. David Platt challenges us to actually take Jesus at His word. He challenges us to stop trying to live and chase after the American dream, but to live out God's design for our lives. He tells us that God wants us to go out and make disciples of ALL nations. I was floored to read about the number of people who don't know Christ and those who have never even heard of Christ. David Platt holds us accountable, and shows how we are failing as an American Church when we see and hear of so many who have never heard the Gospel. He calls us out on the fact that we are living extravagantly when a countless number of people die every day from starvation and treatable diseases. We are more concerned with our success than the eternal state of people's souls. This book is a call to change your life and live out the Bible, and it will make you uncomfortable. We are provoked to love extravagantly, to pray for others daily, to give of our time, our money, and our resources until it hurts. I'm taking this challenge. This book has helped me to take the focus off of myself, while I still struggle with dying to myself everyday. I have realized that Christianity is NOT about me at all, it's not about what God has done for me, but it's about God, period. God did not save me for my sake, but He saved me for His namesake, so He can be glorified. God is the only one worth glory, honor, and praise. I would recommend this book to any follower of Jesus Christ who wants a deeper and more real relationship with God that takes the focus off of ourselves. David Platt has been used of God to convey the truth of God's word even though it may not be an easy pill for many to swallow.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
This shake mix is a perfect foundation to so many different shakes. It's my go-to breakfast shake and can easily add frozen fruit and be done. I tend to like things that are easy without a lot of work and this shake mix is one of them. I find that a 200 calorie shake holds me until lunch with no problem, which is really great if you are trying to reduce your caloric intake. The taste is also great. It's a simple sweet cream (like vanilla) and goes great with all fruits. I highly recommend it.
