You Need Your Breakfast!


*Eating breakfast boosts weight loss efforts by kick starting your metabolism.  Studies show that breakfast eaters have success at losing and maintaining weight loss compared to those who skip.

 *Improves concentration so you can move about your day with more intellect.  Research shows that people who eat a high fiber breakfast have better concentrations levels then those who eat a high fat breakfast. 

*Protects your heart.  One study noted that people who consumed whole-grain cereals had a lower risk of heart disease. 

Christine Avanti’s Breakfast Tips

1. Eat a balanced meal of lean protein and high fiber carbs, like her Spring Asparagus Mini Frittatas and a bowl of steel cut oats.  Find this healthy recipe at www.christineavanti.com.

2.  If you don’t have time for breakfast, grab a Kashi TLC bar, I love their peanut butter flavor.  It’s packed with good fats, fiber, protein and carbs.  Another quick option is Kashi Go Lean Hi Protein Cereal…it’s got 13 grams of protein and it’s loaded with all natural high fiber carbs.  Add some skim milk and you’ve got a breakfast of champions! 

3.  Eat breakfast within one hour of waking up so that you don’t have a energy crash and crave sugar later in the afternoon.

Addison Road update!

We were heartbroken about the terrible loss that the band Addison Road suffered this past week. While on tour with Sanctus Real, their RV burned to the ground and they lost everything. Thank you so much for praying for them, it's been a really tough time. But God is faithful!

God wouldn't let me sleep after hearing about this. He laid some friends of mine on my heart. Geoff and Jill Ludlow of Full Sail Ministries. They travel with their family in an RV spreading the word of God. I felt that God wanted me to call them and see if Addison Road could use their RV. Turns out, they didn't need it until June and after hearing Addison Road's story, Geoff jumped at the chance to offer them the use of their RV for the remainder of the tour!

Jenni shared that they were considering leaving the tour and heading home. They were even questioning their career choice. It's amazing to see how God can use us to make a difference! For Geoff and his family, it was sharing their RV. For you, it may be something different. We are all called to reach out to those around us and share the love of Jesus.

Thank you for praying. Thank you for making a difference!

You and your music have been a comfort, a chalenge, and a tye between continents. I lived in Kenya for three months in 2006 and a few of my friends put a slideshow together for me as a goodbye... their choice of music: Gone - TobyMac ... recently i was having a rough time and a friend of mine who met you at a concert had asked you to sign his backstage pass with your favorite verse... he passed that on to me and it gave me hope in a rough time ... continue to allow God to work through you! He's doing some pretty cool stuff!

Toby,  My name is Spencer Hicks, I live in Ohio, and I am 11 years old.  I really like the song, "Burn for You" that you sing(I know this song well because I have your CD "Alive and Transported"--in Houston, TX).  I listen to your music a whole lot.  My mom got me started listening to your music.  

I hope to hear from you soon.  You could reply to my mom's e-mail, or my address is:  8969 Old U.S. Rt. 36, Bradford, OH  45308.

Hi, I would like to say first that God has blessed ya! My dad is a big praise and worship guy and when your song "Extreme Days" came out, he wouldnt let me listen to it- he is not into the whole rock, rap music.. he is into Michael W. Smith-basically slow worship songs (which there is nothing wrong with that-I just need my Tobymac, Fireflight, Red, and so on). Now, he says that God has blessed you and that you are doing great, which for him to say that is a big deal-the youth pastor at his church would agree. For me, I have to say thank you for all you have done. Your song, "Made to Love" is my praise and worship song. Just to know that I am made to love God and am loved by God well, makes me wanna dance. My husband who doesnt like rap, likes this song and "Lose My Soul". Thank you soo much!!!

Yeah, we've been wanting to tell Toby this for a year.  We saw him at Winter Jam in Southaven, MS last year and it rocked, so awesome. But, on the way home, my daughter got a dreaded speeding ticket.  Well, no big deal you know these things happen.  The next week I got a big fat ticket while listening to Toby Mac on the way to school with my son.  (I know I shouldn't have been speeding but who can help it when you're listening to I need a getaway car, gotta get outta her fast and far)? Anyways, just to be safe, Toby, we think you should add an advisory to the outside of your cd that guards you against such tickets LOL love ya man!

I am a teacher at a school that only see students that are diagnosed with an emotional or mental disability.  I am a huge Toby fan. I listen to atleast on of his songs every morning to help me remember my purpose on this planet.  I teah K-2nd grade and when you guys had the tickets to WinterWonder Slam, I played KLove softly in my room.  During that time my students also fell in love with Toby and his music.  I would like to thank Toby for his message in his songs, his godly leadership, and being a great role model during a time when so many people are focused on themselves.  I can not wait to see him in concert again, hopefully he can get close to Fort Smitn.  We missed out on the AwakeTonight tour.  I love you Toby, I hope I get the chance to let you know in person jus what an impact you make in my life and the life of my students and faculty every time I listen to your music.  God bess.  Ryan

My boyfriend and I were in a pretty serious relationship and he recently broke up with me. I was pretty depressed and angry for the past couple months, especially because he doesn't want anything to do with me now. Your song "Get Back up" makes me feel so much better and reminds me that there are other better things out there! I always listen to it on K Love

Hi, Toby. My name is Stephanie and I am 12 years old. Your songs have greatly blessed me in many ways. Your songs have helped me come through hard times when I think that God can no longer hear me.
They have helped me through my case of severe asthma and friendship troubles. I just want you to know that you are my major support through thick and thin and also for many other Christians.
