I encourage you to read Matt. 14:22-31 carefully. This is the famous Biblical story of the morning that Peter - a man just like us - literally walked on water. This was not a figure of speech, or made-up tale, told in order to communicate some deeper truth. While there are depths to this story to be grasped, we must understand that this actually, truly happened.

I spent a few minutes with one of my favorite clients yesterday. She is 97 years old. We worked to increase core strength and stability, and practiced standing and walking without lateral support. My little client and I have been working together for nearly three years. She is amazing and wonderful.
