How Long Will You Live? A Longevity Calculator

by Steve Ray on December 31, 2015

Watch your age in the upper right corner! Kinda’ fun to watch your age go up and down as you answer the questions.

It’s interesting, so give it a try….  How long will you live? This is a calculator that estimates your life expectancy. It was developed by Northwestern Mutual Life.

There are only 13 questions, yet they can predict how long you’re likely to live.

Of course only God knows the day and the hour of our deaths, but this might wake us up to choices we make and how they effect our lives. God had given us a marvelous body and to him “who much is given, much will be required.”

Maybe it will help some of us change our lifestyle. I know for myself the doctor told me four years ago I was not in good shape. I had lots of reasons why I could not take the time to change my lifestyle. But I did.

Our whole family changed our lifestyle by reducing our food intake, eating only healthy foods and exercising daily – even when it hurts :-)

You can do the same!

Mary and the Other Body of Christ; How Many People were in the Upper Room and Why?

November 21, 2015

The room was pretty full. It was warm but a gentle breeze was blowing—that would change. There was fear in the room. The Roman army was a thing to be feared, they had just crucified Jesus and it was a dangerous thing to associates of an executed criminal. They were also anxious about the promise. [...]
