When I'm proposing.
To not just Catholics in even not just Christians I think there -- a lot of people recognize that seasons yeah in our lives it's good to build a more intense -- -- -- working -- -- on my website father Jonathan dot com.
Is what I'm calling linked.
It involves three things by the body and mind and soul let's start with the mind absolutely.
-- -- -- -- -- Suggesting is that in all three of these areas but -- these adjustments scripture verses but -- put in on this one challenged their 2013 as encouragement but.
In each of these areas mind body shall give something up.
And add something -- life.
So for example let's that talk about.
What we usually do body OK so and -- terms of linked book and I give up.
Alcohol I'm gonna give up -- -- -- but then and something sure life in that area.
What can I do it here -- my body that's going to be a positive for me not just making a sacrifice -- it's working out.
Maybe it's a big eating more healthy but what about -- -- the mind.
When I didn't give up -- -- my mind what my putting my mind that's not helpful in this too much reality TV -- thing.
Mediate immediate -- genetic I know you're not going to -- up.
But up up at.
But also what -- -- -- and it looked at the spiritual reading my in my going to do what type of professional.
-- development in my gonna -- in the area of my mind to mind.
Body spirit and I put examples again you can find -- and -- Jonathan dot com and I've explained what is linked.
I've said why did something up.
-- and then -- say why this type of the challenge so if you make a little box in your own mind to write it down the mind body spirit we're gonna give up.
We're gonna end it I'm -- in trouble with my soul.
What do I do.
Give me an example like that -- a lot of resonance to this part when veterans like reputable national televised confession exactly that's the let it bother thrives and in your soul okay that's a great degree question what are those things in my in my school.
That are not helpful during its 46 days.
Forty days plus 66 -- what am I gonna give up that's bring me down to maybe it's bad habits are sinful habits.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Bringing about relationships that are broken back into the right place but making it different and what am -- -- -- mind body and soul.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Morgan on right now you know I also made a commitment that.
For the next 46 is sometimes like on Twitter I do that for a few days and it's you know the next 46 days for those were joining in on this -- challenge 2013 and a do -- an inspirational.
It encouragement for those 46 days those were found that it.
That is the point I mean gonna put yourself out there and do something -- it's difficult -- you got up and we need to sacrifice but we need to add mind body and spoke so.
But I thought John great to see if that's infinite essence we've got more.
