Hi, my name is Melissa Finnegan. I  have been blogging for several years over at Genesis 5020. That started out with my husband and I sharing our story about God saving our marriage. It has turned into more of a blog where I review Christian books with the occasion inspirational blog.

In July of 2017 I started to get serious about my health when the doctor told me if I just started to exercise I wouldn’t have to take any meds to lower my VERY high cholesterol. The next day I got an email from a place I normally review books for but they had an offer to review Faithful Workouts for free. I figured this was a sign from God and I should do it.

So I did.

Twenty-five pounds lighter and I have become very passionate about healthy living. I am always looking for new recipes to try. I will share my story more in depth on the blog (this is just a quick overview).

I am not someone who creates their own recipes, so you won’t find original recipes by me. But I will share with you what I have tried and what I like. I will also share with you cookbooks, or magazines I have read.

The most important thing I have learned on this journey to better health is that I need to keep my focus on the One who created my body. If I get focused on me it will become about something it shouldn’t. Selfishness and caring what others think. This has been a hard lesson to learn and I am still learning everyday. 

Hence the name Eat or Drink For the Glory of God, which comes from the verse 1 Corinthians 10:30 which says: So whether you or eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 

That sums it up for me. I hope this blog will bring God glory.
