Do you ever rest from technology? Have you ever rested from your phone or TV or other forms of media?  Read what Andy Crouch, author of "The Tech-Wise Family".  Good advice on how to cultivate rest in the lives of yourself and your family.

"Well, I'll tell you the one thing that people seem to find most helpful. A simple principle is our devices are not always being on.  I recommend a rhythm of at least one hour a day, one day a week, and one week a year, the whole family being free from anything that glows, and as much as possible from other forms of technology as well.  Our family has a day a week largely free.  Our "hour a day" is around dinnertime for us -- for families with smaller children, bedtime may make the most sense.  And I think it is important to have a week or more a year that is technology-free.  Not every family  has the means or opportunity to take a week vacation, but many do, and to

The Best Of You: BEYOND ORGANIC.......A SHAKLEE STANDARD!!Shaklee...


: BEYOND ORGANIC.......A SHAKLEE STANDARD!! Shaklee screens for over 350 contaminants, pesticides, and impurities on every new botanical, 3...


Shaklee screens for over 350 contaminants, pesticides, and impurities on every new botanical, 3 times more than U.S. Pharmacopeia standards.

Shaklee also performs over 100,000 quality tests per year to ensure that their products are pure. People ask "Are Shaklee products Organic?"  Shaklee's working philosophy is something much, much better.....Beyond Organic...a philosophy that Shaklee quality standards go beyond how and where an ingredient is grown.  Shaklee confirms the purity and potency of ingredients AFTER harvest to guarantee that the final finished product is FREE of hundreds of chemical contaminants.

You may be asking "WHY"does Shaklee go "Beyond Organic"?  While Shaklee encourages all consumers to purchase organic produce and ingredients, it is important to remember that organic is a means of production; not a guarantee that the food is clean and free of chemical contaminants, pesticides and herbicides....even when safely applied...can run off into unintended areas and farmland.

That is why Shaklee's approach is to work with the finest suppliers and to go ABOVE AND BEYOND to verify the safety, purity and potency of the ingredients they use..after harvest.

Your safety and your family's safety is Shaklee's highest concern.  And their BEYOND ORGANIC  program guarantees the highest standards of safety. 

Now when someone asks about organic standards, you'll be able to say,  "LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT SHAKLEE'S BEYOND ORGANIC Program."
