I “heart” truth

“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones” (Prov. 14:30)

We’ve all heard the sayings…”the truth hurts”; “the truth sets you free” or “to tell the truth” but what it all boils down to is not so much the truth but what you do with that truth.  And THAT starts with your heart!

inneractive FITCLUB has joined The Heart Truth®, a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease, sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Help us spread The Heart Truth that heart disease is the #1 killer of women. Most women don’t take their risk of heart disease seriously or personally.  Help us to motivate women to find out their risks and take action to lower them.

It’s easy to use The Heart Truth campaign materials to spread the word.  Here’s how:

  • Use The Heart Truth for Women:  A Speaker’s Kit to give a compelling one-hour talk in your community.
  • Get The Healthy Heart Handbook for Women, an updated 122-page guide to the most recent information on women’s heart disease and practical tips for how to reduce the risk of developing it.
  • Distribute the campaign brochure, The Heart Truth for Women.  Available in English and Spanish, it features women telling their own stories about heart disease and provides information about risk factors and a checklist of key questions to ask the doctor.
  • Visit The Heart Truth Web pages at www.hearttruth.gov to find out more about the campaign and to view and order campaign materials.

Here’s a few heart truths you can use now!

A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit (Prov 15:13)

As water reflects a face, so a man’s heart reflects the man (Prov 27:19)

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. FIt it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved (Romans 10:9-10)

One thought on “I “heart” truth

  1. Yum! I think I may take this truth… and make that turkey and spinach manicotti! No, seriously, I’m a newspaper reporter, and I’ve spoken to women whose lives have been affected, almost lost, to this truth. I’ve written articles about heart disease being the No. 1 killer of women. I’ll have to find one of those past articles now and post it to the blog my friend Grace just started.
