Here at Online Communities we've been streaming The Daniel Plan for online students to be able to engage in. From April 6 - May 2, 2015, you can visit our Online Communities Daniel Plan Page to get all the details on the schedule of events. So, what exactly is the Daniel Plan? I talked with Robin Quay, a Registered Dietician, to get all the details and how they relate to you, the Online Student.
Q: In a nutshell, what is “The Daniel Plan?”
A: The Daniel Plan is a six week Bible study that focuses on God’s prescription for your health. There are 5 essential areas of health in this plan: Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus and Friends.
Q. How can the Online Student best be a part of the Daniel Plan?
A: Obviously, by participating! Also, get a group of people around you who can also join in. Whether that be family members or friends; the key for accountability is community.
Q: Is this just a diet, or is there more to it?
A: This is way more than just a diet. It encompasses your whole self! It goes above and beyond food and fitness. This is a total lifestyle change.
Q: If you could say one thing in hopes of getting the online student to join, what would it be?”
A: It’s really important to God that we take care of our physical bodies. They’re a gift from Him. Think about if you are healthy and felt really good, would you be more effective for Him? We need to take care and honor our bodies because they don’t really belong to us.
Q: What do you hope the participants will take from this once it’s over?
A: I hope they take from this journey that God values us. And that it’s worth taking care of ourselves because of that. Something Rick Warren said that has really impacted me is this: “God made it. Jesus died for it. The Holy Spirit lives in it. And I need to take care of it.”
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to share with the Online Students?
A: Just that if people want something better… this is the key to something better. From my personal experience, the Daniel Plan has helped me feel more energized and feel healthier overall. It’s my hope that everyone tries this plan and sees the benefits it has to offer!
