This month we are incredibly excited to officially kick off the Lengthening Your Stride program. September's theme is personal health. The goal suggestions this month provide several ideas that can improve various aspects of our personal health.
Our bodies are an amazing gift from Heavenly Father and it is our responsibility to be good stewards over them. If we follow the teachings of the church regarding our personal health, we are promised: "health in their navel and marrow to their bones . . . wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures; [you] shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint . . . the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them. (D&C 89:18-21).
We hope that this month you can gain a deeper understanding of the blessings that come through lengthening your stride in the area of personal health.
Please feel free to share your insights and thoughts with us throughout the month.
