Coffee, A Girl’s Best Friend: Pros and Cons

If your city is like mine, then there is a Starbuck’s on every corner!  It’s quite tempting and pretty hard to say “no” to a hot coffee or icy frappe when it’s right there!  It’s also hard not to make when you’ve got a coffee maker and creamers in your own kitchen.  Nevertheless, coffee is almost unavoidable!  So is this girly drink good or bad for you?  Let’s break down the truth!

Surprisingly enough, coffee has a handful of health benefits!  Coffee contains an abundance of antioxidants that actually prevent brain cell damage.  It helps fight diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.  Even the risk of brain cancer and diabetes drops!  Coffee is also heart healthy!  It keep arteries from becoming inflamed, which lowers the risk of stroke; but be careful, too much coffee can have the opposite effect! Chelsea Crockett- coffee pros and cons

While coffee has a lot of pros, it can also hinder your health.  If you get stressed easily or can’t sleep at night, then lay off the coffee.  Coffee is high in caffeine, which can make certain people very jittery and/or anxious.  If you’re one of these people, but love coffee, just drink one cup a day!  It’s also not a great idea to add a large amount of heavy creamers and sugar to each glass.  All in all, coffee isn’t too bad for you (unless you’re having 5 cups a day)!

Are things always either right or wrong?

Not every choice we make is either right or wrong. Sometimes we just like certain things more than others–such as ice cream flavors.  If you like strawberry, it isn’t right or wrong–It’s just something you like.  Or you might have two toys to play with, and you choose one over the other.  Both would be all right, but you chose one.  At other times, we have to choose between what is good, what is better, and what is best.  None of those choices would be bad or wrong, but we would be wise to choose what is best.  In choices like those, parents and other wise people can give us good advice.  Some choice are either right or wrong, but not all choices are.

Key verses: 1 Corinthians 10:23-24

Why is the world so violent and evil?

Sin is the root cause of all evil.  Because people sin, the world is filled with sin and evil.  It has been this way since Adam and Eve’s first sin….

Sin is the root cause of all evil.  Because people sin, the world is filled with sin and evil.  It has been this way since Adam and Eve’s first sin.good_evil_post

In some ways it may seem that violence is worse today than in the past.  Weapons are more destructive than ever before.  There are more guns and knives and more ways of hurting people than ever before.  As these weapons get more powerful, so does the power to hurt others.

But in reality, violence and evil come out of evil hearts that are separated from God.  As long as people rebel against God, we will have violence and evil in the world.

Key Verse: Romans 12:21

Hello Lovelies,

            I love love love sweets!  Nothings better than a giant candy bar, or a chocolate cake, or cupcakes, or ice cream, or…..well, you get the point.  Lucky for you, there’s a sweet out there that is actually good for you!  Sounds too good to be true, right?  Dark chocolate, eaten in moderation, has a Chelsea Crockett- dark chocolatelot of amazing benefits for your health.  Who would’ve guessed that chocolate, something so delicious, could actually be a wonder food?

            Dark chocolate, unlike many other sweets, has a lot of crucial benefits for your health.  Eating small amounts 2-3 times a week can lower your blood pressure and increase blood flow to the brain.  It contains the same chemical that is released in your body when you feel like you’re in love, so this stimulates blood flow throughout the body and makes you feel happier.  It is also full in antioxidants, which helps block harmful bacteria from the body and can protect you from many types of cancer.  Surprisingly, dark chocolate contains a stimulant called Theobromine, which hardens tooth enamel.  This can actually lower your risk of cavities (chocolate that doesn’t cause cavities, whaaaat?!)

            Start making small amounts of dark chocolate a regular food in your weekly diet.  It won’t be sudden, but soon your body will start to thank you.  Just remember, don’t eat the entire bar!

Why do people worship idols instead of God?

Idols are simply pictures or statues of imaginary gods.  Actually, most people who have idols don’t worship the idols but the gods they represent.  Some people, however, think that an idol itself can help them.

People want to believe in things that they can see and touch, so they make things they can see.  But we cannot see God because God is spirit.  As Christians, we do not make or worship idols because idols take our attention away from worshiping the one true God.

Key Verse: John 1:18

There are many kinds of Bibles because there are many kinds of people.  But they all contain the same message.  Different Bibles meet different needs.  Some Bibles are very small so you can carry them with you.  Others are big so you can see the words better.  Some Bibles use everyday words to make the Bible easy to read  and the lessons easy to learn.  Some Bibles have notes, maps, and charts to help people understand the parts that are different from today.  The purpose of all these different Bibles is to help people understand what God is saying so they can obey him.

Key Verse: 1 Timothy 4:13

When we’re bad, can we still pray?

A person can pray at any time and in any need.  When people do bad things or make mistakes, they need God more than at any other time.  When we…

A person can pray at any time and in any need.  When people do bad things or make mistakes, they need God more than at any other time.  When we do something wrong, we need to talk with God about it.  We need to admit that what we did was wrong, say that we’re sorry, and ask him to forgive us.  That is the first thing we should pary when we do something bad.  Then God can help us learn so that we can do better next time.  God knows we are not perfect, and he wants to help us by giving us wisdom and helping us change.

If we ait until we are good enough to pray, we will never pray.

Key Verse: Luke 18:13-14
