In this day and age, we are linking together in ways we never thought possible. Social networking surrounds all of our lives whether we are at work making meeting arrangements, or have a day off connecting with friends via Skype. There is no way that we could grasp the full concept of this technology without the God of the Universe leading and directing us all to find Him in every detail.

While following those leads and directions from God, Weigh Down Ministries has made available a first of its kind, live Weigh Down Basics course through their Weigh Down Facebook Group! This opportunity is available to anyone who is ready to “find yourself eating less, losing weight more quickly, and receiving daily encouragement from new friends – all while gaining a

Heading up those coordinators is Gwen Shamblin’s daughter, Elizabeth (Shamblin) Hannah. Alongside her will be several familiar voices from the Weigh Down offices: Jessica Walters, Regina Smith, Candace Anger, Jenni Mendl, Debbie Blair, and Lisa Peters. Not only will these lovely ladies be directing and encouraging, but the Weigh Down founder and constant encourager, Gwen Shamblin, will also be on live off and on throughout the class for an encouraging word!
