One local church is ready to help with a free seminar featuring Drs. Thomas and LaVerne Jackson, co-founders of M.E.E.T. Ministry.

Dr. Thomas Jackson, Ph.D., is director and co-founder of Missionary Education and Evangelistic Training Ministry, based in Huntingdon, Tenn. Jackson's seminar will focus on God's plan for health and a happy life. He and his wife, LaVerne Jackson, have created a ministry designed to educate people to cooperate with nature and learn accessible, practical lifestyle principles including:
* Godly Trust

* Daily Exercise
* Proper Rest
* Lots of Water
* Always Temperate
"Stress -- distress -- is killing people," reads the M.E.E.T. Ministry website. "So, we need to teach people how to manage stress through the eyes of God. We feel ourselves to be educators, inspiring -- motivating -- people; trying to implant in them the desire to want to be healthy."
Lunch includes a buffet of vegetables and whole-grain foods.
Space is limited and registration for the event is required.
