Natalie Grant Teams Up with Charlotte Gambill
for Their Fourth Annual "Dare To Be" Tour

The 12-date tour continues pay-it-forward theme,
kicks off Jan. 14 in Boise, ID -- daretobeevent.com



DARE TO BE KNOWN 2016 TOUR FOR WOMEN


Natalie Grant's latest album -- the #1 Billboard debuting 'Be One' (11.13) -- was based on a simple theme: "Why sit around and wait for a miracle. Be one." It's this perspective that helped the "gospel-tinged" (Billboard) vocalist overcome her personal battles and team up with friend Charlotte Gambill -- leader of England's Life Church and author of "The Miracle in the Middle" -- to tour the country and share with others. With their fourth annual, 12-date "Dare to Be" tour, Natalie and Charlotte hope to help women overcome their guilt and worry and be the people they're truly meant to be.

Rooted in a spirit of hope and empowerment, this fully integrated program of worship and teaching challenges women to step into the roles God has called them to.

"This isn't just a night where you're coming to come and get comfortable in your seat and be entertained," shares Natalie. "This is a night where you will encounter the presence of God in such a way that you will leave changed."

Using the lessons from her book, "The Miracle in the Middle," Charlotte equips women with the ability to "find strength in the struggle, the passion to persist, wisdom when they're weary, and joy in the journey." Paired with powerful worship from Natalie -- including hits "Be One" and "Clean" -- Natalie and Charlotte challenge women to accept "The Dare" to aim higher, stretch further, to trust and realize that you can do more.

During each event, Natalie and Charlotte will honor a local woman who has overcome her circumstances and become a miracle in her own life. Part of this recognition includes gifting the honoree with something she needs: rent money, groceries or transportation.

"When one sister overcomes, we all overcome," says Charlotte. "We try to find stories and people who have had the opportunity to wear bitterness or hardship or pain, but had the courage and the strength to say no."

In the midst of criss-crossing the country with "Dare to Be," Natalie will continue to inspire lives with her new tween book series 'Glimmer Girls.' The first two books -- "London Art Chase" and "A Dolphin Wish" -- will release through Zondervan's Faithgirlz brand on Feb. 2, 2016. A link to pre-order is here.

  Did you know that the gut contains over 100

Dr. Maitreyi Raman is one of the contributing authors of The Complete Prebiotic & Probiotic Health Guide - A Diet Plan for Balancing Your Gut Flora and a leading expert in the field of gastroenterology and physician nutrition. The authors have provided the reader with this marvelous health resource geared towards the Vegetarian lifestyle.  This book features a vegetarian diet that includes a simple 8-step program which is sure to help you lose weight and reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer. There is a 14-day meal plan with smart tips to encourage  and motivate a healthy weekly food diary.  As a bonus, there's 175 recipes using natural prebiotic sources to help you maintain that healthy lifestyle.  If you a not a Vegetarian, this guide is sure to help and encourage you to take small steps in educating yourself about your body's needs.  You will find recipes for every occasion like baked goods, desserts, smoothies, juices, breakfast & brunch, soups, pasta & grains,  and much more. Oh, there are vegetables!

The Complete Prebiotic & Probiotic Health Guide features answers to questions like the following:

  • What are prebotics the top 8 probiotic foods?
  • What are the top 6 tips for probiotic living?
  • What is the link between air pollution and the gut?
  • What type of yogurt should I eat and why?
  • What is the link between microbiome and Crohn's Disease?
  • What is the relationship between probiotics in the treatment of autism?
  • And, many more... 


The Complete Prebiotic & Probiotic Health Guide grabbed my attention immediately for many reasons. First of all,  I have been taking probiotic supplements on a regular basis to aid in digestive and immune health. I even eat yogurt from time to time. I'll be the first to admit that I need to read up on the importance of prebiotic and probiotic health a bit more.

Also, I wanted to learn more about Crohn's Disease and Autism because I have children and grandchildren with these issues. With the New Year quickly approaching , I am sure many of you already have health and fitness on your mind. Why not consider  The Complete Prebiotic & Probiotic Health Guide - A Diet Plan for Balancing Your Gut Flora by Raman, Sirounis and Shrubsole. I highly recommend this resource even if you are not a Vegetarian. You can find your copy online at Robert Rose, Inc.(www.robertrose.ca).

Q & A with Maitreyi Raman author of The Complete Prebiotic & Probiotic Health Guide:


1. How would you sum up The Complete Prebiotic & Probiotic Health Guide in one sentence?
This book provides highly novel insight into the mechanisms of action through which diet and impact health and disease, and provides a healthful living guide based in cutting edge science.
2.  What do you most want people to learn/take away from this book?
   
I would like people to recognize that fiber intake in the North American diet is quite low, and that by optimizing fiber intake, many chronic disease may be mitigated. Additionally, the intake of processed and refined food may contribute to chronic diseases through impact on the microbiome.

3. What would your top five tips be for someone just starting to balance their gut flora with prebiotics/probiotics?
This is a great question, as the proposed concepts may seem daunting not to mention overwhelming to someone who is looking for a dietary overhaul. I would stress the importance of starting with dietary charting and maintaining food records to assess the current state. Then, attention to increasing fiber from fruit, vegetables and whole grains would be valuable. Introduction of fermented foods, such as yogurt and kefir would be the next step to round out the process.
