Taking the Next Steps in Brain Health

We have heard it before: “We are what we think.”  And it is true.  What we think about ourselves, others or a given situation becomes our reality; be it true or not.  That is because the mind is a very powerful thing! 

It reminds me of a true story. Many years ago, a grocery worker in fear of the freezer door locking shut while stocking the store freezer, would keep the door propped open with a wedge under the door in order to make certain that the door would never shut and lock him in.  One day, as he was stocking the freezer, his worst nightmare took place.  He heard the door slam shut behind him.  He panicked, screamed, pounded and pounded and no one responded.  He sat in a corner and began to feel the chill. He shivered, and it got colder and colder and colder and finally he froze to death!   When someone arrived and opened the door, they found this poor man frozen.  There was only one thing that seemed to puzzle the person that discovered this unfortunate situation:  THE FREEZER HAD BEEN UNPLUGGED!   Yes, this man imagined that it was freezing so… he froze!   As a man thinks in his heart so is he (Proverbs 23:7).

In life in many ways this type of scenario happens all the time.  Our minds can tell us things that are not true and if we believe them, they become our reality!  The truth sets us free (John 8:32) and so a lie, a lie will place us in captivity or bondage.  And that is what the enemy of our soul desires!  He desires to trap us, chain us, place us in bondage and enslave us.  He can do this though the avenue of our minds.   So, the question is:  how can we get and/or remain free?  That will be the theme of our next two articles that I will be sharing with you.  Let me start with the first two principles today.

Principle number one:  Fill your mind with the truth!   You see, truth is what will set and keep us free!  However, in order to know truth, you have to live in an environment that promotes the truth.  I know this may bother some of you, but the world of technology is a virtual reality that often times is not real.  Living a life that indulges in social media can feed our brain with so much of what is not true that you can live a life that is guided by untruth… LIES!  I would encourage you to minimize the use of social media and not feed into everything that you read, see, or hear.  Also, this type of approach of feeding off of media and social networking (including Smart Phone use) creates what Dr. Lusting calls a stress-fear neuropathway (see his book The Hacking of the American Mind) that drives our neurotransmitters crazy and causes a dopamine serotonin imbalance that results in mental health issues.  May I encourage you to make some life adjustments in this area? Begin today to place yourself in an environment where you are in touch with reality.  Get into the real world.  Get out into nature and build relationships with people in a living (not a simulated) environment.

Our last principle for today is of paramount importance and is connected to principle number one and that is this:  while seeking for truth to fill your mind with let it be found in the reading, meditating and memorizing scripture – God’s word.  Think about it, if we become what we focus on, then following the ancient advice of Isaiah 26:3: “You keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you” to be a principle that we live by can help us arrive at a level of mental health that is completely satisfying.  So today, take time to direct your mind towards the one who created you and allow His words to flood your soul through the avenue of your mind.  If we do, He has promised us that we will have perfect peace!  

We are what we think!  If we place ourselves in an environment that promotes truth and then take the time to fill our minds with the truth, our mental health we be placed on the pathway of peace!

In His Service,

Say a Prayer

Hello Friends of RTFM!

We pray that your 2022 is off to a good start.   We are wondering if as we have now entered in to February if you would be willing to take time each day or as often as you can to say a prayer for us as a ministry.  

We have several projects, and we are looking to expand our territory for Christ. 

We are also looking to place monthly videos on the RTFM YouTube channel. In our desire to expand the channel we have improved on our equipment and now have a person to take over that department so you should be seeing an improved production. 

We also will be seeking to have monthly devotional thoughts on the RTFM blog The 2022 theme is Renewing the Mind! 

 As our team has prayed we feel that our heavenly Father desires for us to daily become more and more like Jesus.  This all begins in the mind.  We will be sharing message on this topic on the RTFM YouTube channel as well as the RTFM blog 

We also will continue to take speaking engagements.   While God has blessed, and we have increased in this area overtime, the enemy still continues to work hard in blocking these engagements from happening.  Please pray that God will remove these obstacles that keep coming up more and more often.  

Our counseling and life coaching ministry is growing, and we have now included monthly marriage or counseling 3-5 intensives to help couples and individuals with their relationships and mental health. 

God continues to open doors at our local university campus and our team continues to be able to enter in and spread the message of salvation on a secular campus. 

Last year, as a result 3 people gave their lives to Christ and joined God’s church! Lastly, spread the word about us and even follow the RTFM Facebook page 

We want to thank you for your prayer support!  We want to thank you for your financial support over the years!  Of course, we can never do anything without God, so we praise Him.  We also know that God has used you as part of this ministry, and we could never do it without you! May God bless your 2022 is our prayer! 

Until next time, Pastor David

COVID-19 Health Routine*

Important Lifestyle Needs During the Pandemic

David Guerrero, ND, CNC, M.Div., CHC

We are in the midst of a pandemic that does not seem to be going away.  It surprises me that I have not seen a total health response by people in government or healthcare leadership.  I know that the typical contemporary healthcare response is treat symptoms with medication or surgery; I get that.  However, looking at that most complications during this pandemic with individuals with comorbidities that a lifestyle change approach would be part of the plan (like, let’s closed down or at least strong urge people to stop eating fast foods which is killing America.)  

Today I am going to share with you some health and wellness principles that can possibly help make a big difference to help you get through this pandemic safely.  Here we go:


A healthy mind makes a healthy life.  As the Bible explains: “As a man thinks in his heart so is he” (Proverbs 27:3).   We are what we think and what we think is what we become.  It should be a lifestyle practice to refrain from complaining, criticizing, judging, gossiping, and any mindset that tends towards being negative.  Negativity causes the secretion of hormones that tends toward the suppression of the immune system and production of chemicals in the body that poison the body system.  Not only should we refrain from a negative mindset but we should look for things to be thankful for, express thankfulness as well seek to do go for others.  All these will tend to build up and preserve good health and our bodies life forces.


We are truly what we eat and as the great Greek physician Hippocrates once said: “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food.”   To optimize our health and keep our immune system at peak performance seek to have about five (5) servings of fruit and five (5) servings of vegetables a day.  They are rich in antioxidants and phytochemicals. Antioxidants are chemicals in fruits and vegetables that protect the body from damage caused by free radicals, also known as cancer producing agents. Phytochemicals are organic components in plant foods that are good for disease prevention and overall health.  A diet rich in fruits and vegetables will maximize your health and have protective tendencies towards COVID-19 and any of its variants.


Staying properly hydrated is key to good help.  Our cells, organs and blood need the right amount of water in order to function properly, efficiently and effectively.  The right amount is half your body weight in ounces.  So, if you way say 150lbs you should be drinking 75 ounces of water a day.   Also try hot cold contrast showers daily (or as often as you can) to keep your immune system boosted.


Exercise is a key component to good overall health.  Try strengthening exercise as well as cardio exercise.  Movement helps to clean the lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system is a central part of your immune system.  Your body relies on your lymphatic system to remove waste, like bacteria, viruses, toxins and abnormal cells that can lead to cancer. And every step you take helps it do its job. That’s because the lymphatic system does not have an organ like the heart to pump fluid around your body. Lymph fluid relies on movement and the contraction of your muscles to make it flow. 

Shoot for at least 4 days a week of exercise that includes strengthening and cardio exercise to get the total benefits of an exercise routine. Physical activity helps flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways. This should reduce your chance of getting a cold, flu, or other illness. Exercise causes change in antibodies and white blood cells (WBC). WBCs are the body’s immune system cells that fight disease.

Also try to get outside at least one time daily for about 30 minutes to get the health rays of the sun to acquire your vitamin D.  You can also be creative in breaking your time up say 10 minutes three times a day in order to get your 30 minutes a day in.


Making sure your body has a chance to rest and recover from the day is important for your immune system to function at full strength. When we sleep, our bodies produce a protein called cytokines, which target infection and inflammation, creating an immune response.  Getting 7-8 hours of sleep a day is optimal. 


A Harvard medicine study linked disappointing or negative interactions with family and friends with poorer health. One intriguing line of research has found signs of reduced immunity in couples during especially hostile marital spats. Having a network of important relationships with social support can also make a difference[1]

Seek to be in positive uplifting relationships with other.  Seek to live peaceably with all people (Romans 18:8).  Let love for God and others be the mantra for your life.  When you do that, He (Yahweh) will keep you in perfect and the potential of good health is maximized

Quality of Air

Let me start by saying that we all should make sure that we are daily taking in an oxygen cocktail in each day. Deep breathing results in helping you to relax. Deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress in the body. This is because when you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax.  When you are in a relaxed state your body is poised to operate optimally.  Also make sure to keep a window in your home and office slightly open ensure the circulation of fresh air.


The following supplements have been found to maximize the function of your immune system and have helped many individuals do quite well during this COVD pandemic.

NAC – N-Acetyl L-Cysteine: N-acetylcysteine has been shown to help increase the number of lymphocytes in the blood when a virus is responsible for lowering it.[2]  It also helps ease breathing as well.  NAC helps boost the immune system and fights viral infection. Suggested dosage is 600 mg 2x daily

 Other supplements would include Vitamin D3 (5000 IU), Vitamin C (3000mg), Zinc 50 mg and Quercetin with Bromelain 800 mg.  Take all on a daily basis for 30 days then take Mon-Friday and weekends off. 

It is advised to check with your doctor before taking any supplements or if you have any other health problems or taking any medications.  These can also be taken as preventative measures.

It is my hope and prayer that you experience optimal health in 2022!

2022-We Are Now Here!

Hello Everyone! We are off to a New Year! God is making ways for us to be a light in a dark place!   In 2022, we have expanded God’s office territory, and we are now making an impact in Wausau and Northern WI. 

Over the year we did a week of prayer in Africa and God blessed tremendously.  Our counseling/life coaching numbers are up, seminars did well overall and many lives were impacted for an eternity!  Lives were changed in 2022 as a result and our Father in Heaven led some to even be baptized! 

This year we also have new resources to impact lives for eternity. This year we plan to expand the Rekindle TV Youtube Channel. Please pray for us as 2022 begins that God would provide for us spiritually, relationally, physically and financially. 

For 2022 we have now have an official trust department through Thrivent.  While we know that Jesus is coming soon we are looking to think wisely about the future.  We prepare everyday for His coming yet plan for each tomorrow with wisdom.  What we do like about this fund is that while it IS for the future at anytime we can use it for today!    If you would like to a partner with Rekindle the Flame Ministries plans for our today’s and tomorrows click the link below, read how to do that and when you are ready the ID number to use is:   Thrivent Link

 If you have any questions you can call our office at :  715-575-1824  and ask to speak to someone that can help you with the Rekindle the Flame Ministries Trust Fund and someone will  be able to give you a hand. 

We thank you for your prayers and financial support over the years!  2022 is now in the Father’s Hands!  What a marvelous thing! Thanks for your time and may God bless you far more abundantly than all that you can ever ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).  

Until Next Time, Pastor David and The RTFM Team

Here Comes 2022

We are only a few weeks away from 2022!

 As we approach a New Year I pray God’s richest blessings upon you and your family! Just know that RTFM is here to serve you, your family, your friends, your church and/or your organization with the essential principles to live the transformed life! 

As you enter into 2022 let us encourage you to look at four (4) areas of your life in order to move in a direction that will keep you safe in the arms of the Savior.  These are four principles that will help you seek God’s kingdom first!  Are you ready? 

The first area is the area of prayer.  Prayer is the key in the hand of faith that will look the storehouse of heaven.  Prayer is to the Christian and food it the body.  Prayer, is that which nourishes our mind body and soul.  Our heavenly Father tells us that we are to:

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.    Jeremiah 33:3 

God desires to show us great and mighty things in 2022!  It will come to those who invest time in prayer! 

The second area is that of Bible Study.  Let me encourage you to this year study the Bible deeply.  Here is what I mean.  Many years ago I began to reading my Bible prayerfully without the “interference” of man.  I opened my Bible, reading it for myself from cover to cover, book to book asking God to show me what the Bible really means and how to apply it to my life.  As I did that, our Heavenly Father began to reveal to me deep Bible truths that I had never seen in my life.  Little by little He helped me to see that past things I had learned were wrong.  That was hard to accept at first.  However, how could I deny a clear reading of the Bible!  How could I reject a clear Spirit led conclusion!   It was freeing in the end as I determined to live by His Word by His power of course) and not by human conclusions.   

The third area is that of family and relationships!  In 2022 my I encourage you to put family first period!   Yes, your relationship with God is first of course; but, after that… make family your priority!  In 2022 seek to deepen your relationship with God and your family allowing nothing to hinder you from doing this!  Nothing! 

Finally, seek our Heavenly Father to lead you to where He desires for you to do real ministry for Him.Over the last two years I have gone through a training entitled: “Reaching the World Next Door.”  That has led me to know how to really reach my neighbors and friends for Jesus!   This is where my family and I are at this point of our lives!  God has led us to focus our attention on those that are seeking for and do not know Yahweh!   Each week now, we can have up to 25 people in our home as a result of that Spirit led desire. 

God has helped us to see that the edification as well as the maturing of the body comes from  the following individuals that He places in the church as shared in Ephesians there are: apostles, prophets, evangelists; pastors/teachers (the pastor/teacher according to the Bible is the elder of the church) So these persons and the gifts as described in the Bible must be present and working in order for the Body of Christ to grow spiritually and in number!   We must admit that today’s Christianity/Church overall does not operate in this manner. 

Let’s seek our Heavenly Father for wisdom on how to engage in the life of His Church they way that He desires for it to operate and function. My prayer is that in 2022 God’s people would seek to do ministry His way! If we do, the church will see maturity and growth that will parallel and exceed that of the early church. 

One more thing.  Let me also encourage you to research and learn the U.S. Constitution.  The founders of our country had a vision, desire and approach for our country and how the church should function that we have lost in so many ways.  So much so that government, politics, committees, etc, run the people and people have almost no say in how things should  be done and exist for the betterment of society, and the church.   At this time in my life I am taking a course on understanding the constitution and becoming a U.S. Constitution coach.  I really think it is that important!    If any of you would like any information on this and/or  how you too could be come a Constitution Coach, email me or call me and I can give you more information. 

Well, May God bless you the rest of this year and may your 2022 be filled with the blessing, power, Spirit and grace of Jesus! 

In His Love,

Hello Friends!

Our prayer is that your 2021 has been a time of reflection and personal growth.

There has been so much going on in this world and it seems that it is spinning faster then ever before.  One noted change is the increase in mental health issues.  RTFM has (by God’s grace) tried to keep up with the increasing number of needs in this area.  It seems to be unprecedented.   Individuals and families seem to be under constant attack by the enemy of our souls.   Just know that we pray for each one of you regularly and we are here to serve you!

As we come to the last quarter of the year we are seeking to meet the RTFM’s  year end needs.  One need is to balance our 2021 budget.  As you may know we engage in ministry with a people first mentality!   We do not charge people for our services and just focus on ministry.  We feel that the healing ministry of Christ should come with no charge!  God has always been gracious and has supplied for all of our needs according to His riches in glory!

We praise Him and thank you for your faithfulness over the years in being generous in your support of God’s work through RTFM!  We thank you for being a RTFM partner.

As a way of saying thank you for your financial support please go to our website and on the resource page choose a prayer journal that best meet your needs. The prayer journals are designed to enhance your prayer life!

Pray for us as we seek to meet the year end needs of RTFM!

We look forward to great things as we near the soon coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Be Not Afraid

 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.   Isaiah 41:10  

What a wonderful thought and promise to have in the times in which we are living!  As of yesterday the COVID virus is on the rise and violence is now being extended to national pastimes in sport arenas.  It doesn’t seem to safe in most places anymore.   Yet, as Christians we are not be have a spirit of fear.  Fear will only paralyze us and keep us from doing the will of God and living as a testimony of God’s power to the world.    The question is how can we keep calm and have peace in a world that seems to be so out of control. 

Remember Who is With You 

The first thing is we must remember who is with us!   God has promised to never leave us nor forsake us.    I love the promise as stated in the book of Deuteronomy 31:8: “And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” God is the one that is going before us. 

Each day as I go out the door it is a comfort to know that God is in front of me.  He is also desiring to lead the way if I would just pause to listen to Him.  God is a loving God who protects His Children.  The Psalmist says: “But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.”   God is our shield.  As my shield  I can boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”  Really, ultimately, what can man do to me?  As compared to eternal life with Jesus… nothing!   So each day let us remember that God is with us!  He has promised us that as He journeys along with us that we are not to be afraid nor dismayed for He is our God. 

Remember What He Has Promised to Do! Think about this for a moment.   Who or what is greater than the God of heaven?  Who can outlast or out do Yahweh?  The answer is no one and nothing can.  So, everything pales in comparison to Him and nothing can even compare to Him.   Listen to the words of the prophet Isaiah:

 I am the Lord, and there is no other;
There is no God besides Me.
I will gird you, though you have not known Me,
That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting
That there is none besides Me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other;
I form the light and create darkness,
I make peace and create calamity;
I, the Lord, do all these things.’    Isaiah 45:5-7 NKJV

 God has promised to give us what we need each day.  He has promised to help us and strengthen us when confronted with any problem, concern and even loss in this world.   Oh, we may have trails and even encounter tragedy as that is all part of living in this sinful world.  However, as the Apostle Paul said: 

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not indespair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed. Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a farmore exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.           2 Corinthians 4:8,9 & 16-19 NKJV  

Let us remember that God is working things out for our eternal good not matter what happens!   He is with us and will lead us triumphantly to the eternal gates of heavenly glory!  So, do not fear and live the life that God desires you to live with hope and in the power of His might! God bless your week! 

Pastor David and the RTFM Family!

Thank God and Then be a Blessing!

There are blessings in your life and mine that “no eye has seen, nor ear heard” (I Corinthains 2:9)— blessings that are so because life rolls smoothly in their absence. For example, think of the many miles you’ve driven without getting a flat tire. Think of the big tree out front of your home that’s never dropped a damaging limb on your house. Think of temptations that you have overcome by the grace of God . Perhaps you have a cold today or an ache or pain. Hovever, think of a dozen of illness that you do not have or that you never experienced.

Often times these good things go unnoticed, unseen, unheard—but are definite blessings from the Lord.

Today, take a moment to thank God for at least 5 things he has blessed you with. Then, use those blessings to be a blessing to someone else.

If you know someone who is hurting, Intercede for them in prayer. Then ask God to show you how to actively be a blessing in their life.

If you can’t think of someone ask God to remind you of those who do suffer from some of the things He’s spared you from and then lift these people up to Him today. Then, seek a way to be a helping hand in their life.

And each day let us all pray for a grateful and giving heart!

Blessings on your day,

The RTFM Team!
