I love the outdoors and I am concerned about protecting our environment. When I talk to other Christians about these passions, I often get labeled automatically as some extreme “leftist” or “tree hugger.” I was raised believing that we are to take good care of the Earth as stewards of God’s creation, but I keep finding myself feeling like I am in the minority of other Christians in this viewpoint.

“But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:14-15
I was once told, “Who you are today determines who you will be tomorrow.” While this seems rather obvious, it is much harder to actually grasp. If you want to be a better athlete, you have to decide today to fuel your body right and to get the proper amount of training.
