Baseball is the Lord’s Game!


Casey and the Lord stood by to observe a baseball game. The Lord’s team was playing Satan’s team. The Lord’s team was at bat, the score was tied zero to zero, and it was the bottom of the 9th inning with two outs:

They continued to watch as a batter stepped up to the plate named ‘Love.’

Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single, because ‘Love never fails.’

The next batter was named Faith, who also got a single because Faith works with Love.

The next batter up was named Godly Wisdom. Satan wound up and threw the first

pitch. Godly Wisdom looked it over and let it pass: Ball one. Three more pitches

and Godly Wisdom walked because he never swings at what Satan throws.

The bases were now loaded. The Lord then turned to Casey and told him He

was now going to bring in His star player. Up to the plate stepped Grace.

Casey said, ‘He sure doesn’t look like much!’

Satan’s whole team relaxed when they saw Grace.

Thinking he had won the game, Satan wound up and fired his first pitch. To the shock

of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than anyone had ever seen! But Satan was not

worried, his center fielder let very few get by. The center fielder went up for the ball, but it went right through his glove, hit him on the head and sent him crashing on the ground; and the roaring crowds went wild as the ball continued over the fence.

The Lord’s team won!

The Lord then asked Casey if he knew why Love, Faith and Godly Wisdom

could get on base but couldn’t win the game. Casey answered that he didn’t know

The Lord explained, ‘If your love, faith and wisdom had won the game, you

would think you had done it by yourself. Love, Faith and Wisdom will get you on

base but only My Grace can get you Home.

‘For by Grace are you saved, it is a gift of God; not of works, lest any man should

boast.’ Ephesians 2:8-9

‘For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.’ Psalm 84:11

Thank you to Women and Mothers Everywhere

May is the special month we honor the women who have made a difference in our lives.

We at Life Priority would like to honor all women by showing you ways to rev up your health regimen. Your loved ones will thank you in return. . . because you will feel a renewed sense of well-being and confidence in knowing how you can easily improve your health. And we all know that when the special women in our lives feel good everyone feels good.

Home is where the heart is.

Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death of American women each year, killing 1 in 4, and 5 times as many women as breast cancer?

Up until a woman enters menopause, the female hormone estrogen offers protection against heart disease by maintaining levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. Estrogen also helps to relax the smooth muscle of the arteries, which supports healthy blood pressure. These benefits disappear after menopause, which is why the risk for heart disease rises in women later than in men. But women of all ages should be concerned about maintaining a healthy heart.

Additionally, since a woman’s heart, arteries and other blood vessels are smaller than a man’s it takes less plaque to fill them up. Women also tend to have blockages in the smaller arteries that supply blood to the heart, not just in the main arteries.

10 ways to support a healthy heart:

1. Eat a nutritious, high-fiber, low-fat heart healthy diet
2. Include foods high in phytonutrients (the nutrients found in plants)
3. Get plenty of foods containing omega-3 fatty acids (cold water fish) or take Life Priority’s Omega-3 Priority. Vegetarians should take flax seed oil or ground flax seed.
4. Practice a stress reduction technique, such as yoga or meditation
5. Exercise
6. Stop smoking!
7. Reduce and/or avoid alcohol
8. Get an annual physical exam to rule out other health factor risks
9. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of purified water every day
10. Get plenty of restful sleep!

But that’s not all! Now is the time to start taking important heart-healthy supplements.

1. CoQ10 (also known as Coenzyme Q10 and ubiquinone) is a co-enzyme and antioxidant found in the mitochondria of every cell and in high concentrations in heart tissue. It helps maintain cardiovascular health and promotes vitality and energy. Co-Q10 is directly involved in creating 95% of the body’s usable energy. It can increase the pumping strength of an aging heart through increased energy production, which in turn enhances the amount of blood flowing through the heart and out to the body.

When you are young and healthy, your liver can produce adequate amounts of Co-Q10. But as you get older, your liver struggles to detoxify the chemicals in your food and environment. Over time, your ability to maintain efficacious amounts of Co-Q10 is severely compromised, which can dramatically impact your health. While CoQ10 production levels peak around age 20, they can decline to an average of just 68% of peak production by age 40. By age 80, CoQ10 levels can drop to 43% of normal, healthy levels–which is why it is important to add CoQ10 to your health regimen!

2. Omega-3 Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are the healthy fats you cannot live without. They are critical to every cell in your body and essential for normal growth, functioning and anti-aging. Since the body cannot manufacture them, EFAs must come from the food you eat and/or nutritional supplements. Most Americans eat plenty of saturated fats, but few eat the fats that you need to support healthy blood pressure and a healthy heart.

It’s a fact of life. Maintaining balance in the female physiology is complex … because women’s hormones are in a constant state of flux, waxing and waning like the moon. The balance becomes even more delicate when the body begins to decrease its estrogen production. Whether you need ongoing or transitional support, you’ll be amazed by how much easier it is to fight stress and fatigue and bring your system back into balance with Omega-3s. Life Priority’s Omega-3 Priority helps support mood, memory, blood lipid levels, and cardiovascular health. This product is really a no-brainer for all women, no matter how old they are.

Calcium and magnesium supplementation — along with exercise and a healthy diet —is the best way to support healthy bones.

3. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in your body and plays a vital role in many areas of health including the maintenance of proper nerve and muscle function, normal blood clotting, cardiovascular function, proper sleep, and bone formation. 99% of the body’s calcium is found in your bones, which serves two functions: it provides strength and structure and it serves as a calcium bank or reserve. Whenever your body senses a decrease in blood calcium, calcium is removed from the bones. This is why it’s absolutely vital to maintain your calcium intake on a daily basis, so that calcium is not drawn out of your bones setting up the stage for osteoporosis.

Preventing osteoporosis:
One out of two women older than age 50 suffers an osteoporosis-related fracture during her lifetime. Complications from these fractures are a major killer of women. Recent research shows that osteoporosis is not limited to post-menopausal women. Each year men suffer one third of all the hip fractures that occur, and one third of these men will not survive more than a year. Fortunately, research has also shown that a healthy diet, weight-bearing exercise and calcium supplementation can aid the body in building and maintaining healthy bone mass, while reducing the risk of osteoporosis.

4. Magnesium is necessary for every major biological process including the body’s production of healthy bone. Magnesium helps the body absorb calcium, converts vitamin D into its active form for calcium absorption and helps regulate calcium.

Often called the “relaxation” mineral, magnesium assists in helping you sleep through the night peacefully without leg cramps, spasms heart palpitations, or anxiety. In fact, if you experience twitching or cramping of any kind, you probably have a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is found in nuts, seeds, legumes, green leafy vegetables, whole grains and avocados. Taking Magnesium Priority is a great way to ensure that you are getting the adequate daily allowance of this vital mineral.

A Mother’s Love: The Driving Force Behind Life Priority

Testimonies by Paige, Storey, and Hailey Pryor, daughters of Life Priority owner, Michelle Pryor

“The month of May has grown sweeter to me, not because I’ve become a Mother myself, but because I’ve watched my Mother become a Grandmother.  I just wish she were with me everyday to remind my kids to take their vitamins.  I attribute my Mother for instilling the knowledge of supplementation and healthy living in me.  My parents’ passion for health and helping people makes me so proud and they talk about their customers as our own family.  Thank you for supporting Life Priority and our family.” – Paige Cook, Michelle’s 1st born

“My mom is one of the most selfless, passionate, nurturing, loving women on the planet – which is certainly why she is the rock of the Pryor family, and it goes without saying, the driving force behind Life Priority. I feel tremendously blessed that my parents created this company to provide the world’s finest health and wellness supplements. My Mom lives and breathes every single product, and is determined to share this incredible company with the world. Thank you for your commitment to your health, and supporting Life Priority over the few decades. There is so much heart and soul in this company, and we are proud you’re a part of our family!” – Storey Pryor, Favorite Daughter

“Most people who cross paths with Michelle Pryor (my mother) are quick to understand the raw and genuine nature of her spirit. I am so grateful to have been raised by a mother with unwavering moral and ethical beliefs. I cannot think of a truer inspiration to have been raised by. Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to adopt some of her most redeeming qualities. You will hear her say, “your health is your most valuable asset” – which I cannot agree with more. I am so thankful that her interest in health and vitamins trickled down into us (her daughters). She truly does care about the well being of others, including all our loyal and valuable customers.” – Hailey Pryor, the baby
