Welcome to Westwind Ministries!

BEFORE you sit down to a meal think about how the food will affect you nutritionally.  How well your body will respond to it.  What kind of fuel is it for God’s Temple.


Pray before you eat ask for the Holy Spirit's help so that you do not over eat. Don’t forget that self control is a seed that is in you—you need to water it and cultivate it.


1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (AMP)
19 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,
20 You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.


Points to remember:

Don’t Clog your body with stress and negative feelings.

REMEMBER—God can also use sickness to slow us down and get our attention.


The flesh and the spirit are continually antagonistic , they are always at war. 


How we feel about ourselves has a direct effect on how we look. 


Eating right is a lifestyle.


Willpower seems to leave when you need it the most.


Change your lifestyle.


Love your body


For every pound you loss you take three pounds off of your knees. 


Walk in the spirit. 

People take better care of their cars than their bodies.

Your body is God's Temple...

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (AMP)

16 Do you not discern and understand that you [the whole church at Corinth] are God’s temple (His sanctuary), and that God’s Spirit has His permanent dwelling in you [to be at home in you, collectively as a church and also individually]?
17 If anyone does hurt to God’s temple or corrupts it [with false doctrines] or destroys it, God will do hurt to him and bring him to the corruption of death and destroy him. For the temple of God is holy (sacred to Him) and that [temple] you [the believing church and its individual believers] are.


INVEST IN yourself! The majority of the food that you ingest should be a diet of whole foods (fruits and veggies) protect against cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other serious health ailments.

Drink lots of water (make it your drink of choice), keep it with you and in front of you.

Back to basics- remember to eat plenty of  fruits & vegetables when ever possible.  Eat more fruits and vegetables that any other food.

Refrain or cut out ingredients that have little or no nutritional value such as the white things (sugar, flour, dairy, salt).

Take a multivitamin and supplement if necessary.

Make exercise a part of your life.  Get up and move!

Get a full night sleep of at least 7 hours.



Remember to:

Let God do the Heavy Lifting

Learn to love your body


Eat with balance (except when it comes to fruits and veggies you can eat lots of these)

Water, Water more Water

Think about what you are putting into your body before you bite

Keep well fed spiritually


Make it Easy

Be Responsible when it comes to your health

Eat very few processed foods and more natural ones.

Remember Good health is cheap—sickness isn’t.

Get up and MOVE; Park far from the door, take the stairs, walk, walk, walk (exercise releaves depression).

Work out your muscles we have the more calories we burn.



Do not use food as your comforter.


Remember: Gluttony is as much a sin as any other addiction. 

1 Corinthians 6:18 (AMP)
18 Shun immorality and all sexual looseness [flee from impurity in thought, word, or deed]. Any other sin which a man commits is one outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

Every sin -- The Greek is forcible. "Every sin whatsoever that a man doeth." Every other sin; even gluttony, drunkenness, and self-murder are "without," that is, comparatively external to the body (Mr 7:18; compare Pr 6:30-32). He certainly injures, but he does not alienate the body itself; the sin is not terminated in the body; he rather sins against the perishing accidents of the body (as the "belly," and the body's present temporary organization), and against the soul than against the body in its permanent essence, designed "for the Lord." "But" the fornicator alienates that body which is the Lord's, and makes it one with a harlot's body, and so "sinneth against his own body," that is, against the verity and nature of his body; not a mere effectcontradiction of the truth of the body, wrought within itself [ALFORD]. on the body from without, but a
