Wondering how to kick 2013 off with a healthy start?

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.

The Seventh-Day Adventist Church, located at 2355 Henry St., in Dyersburg (behind Abe's Ribeye Barn) will host a seminar featuring three sessions and a complementary lunch. The event will take place on Saturday, Jan. 26.

Seminars include:

* 11 a.m. -- God's Purpose for the Creation of Man

* 2:30 p.m. -- None of These Diseases

* 5 p.m. -- The Eight Doctors Who Make House Calls

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

* Open Air

* Daily Exercise

* Proper Rest

* Lots of Water

* Always Temperate

* Nutrition

"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.

Those who wish to register may contact Maryann Krueger at (731) 676-7435 or squashblossomnews@gmail.com.
