God's Love Notes Can Ward Off Dementia

Bible Reading, Dementia, Reading Can Help Ward off Dementia
Researchers believe that people can decrease their chances of developing memory and cognitive loss by keeping their brains active.  

Several studies have shown that people who are mentally and physically active significantly reduce their risk of developing dementia.

Reading, language learning, word puzzles, and stimulating conversations build reserves of active brain cells which delay and/or diminish the symptoms of diseases such as Alzheimer’s. (Television viewing doesn’t help—in fact, some studies show it contributes to brain atrophy.)

The Bible can play a significant role in brain development, but it has even more to offer:
Romans 10:17 says: “faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.”

Reading the Bible (God's Love Notes) offers dual benefits: it affects both the mind and the spirit, building brain cell reserves and “faith reserves.”

  1. Hi Gail, I have become very forgetful of late. I like to blame Coke lite lol! So, as a precaution, because that stuff is just poison, I have stopped drinking it, but I am also trying to learn memory verses. No greater way than the word to stretch, repair and mend one's mind!
    God bless

  2. I can testify to this, I have vascular dementia. keeping my brain active and my body fit has helped, I have not done this under my own steam, I give God all the glory for what He has done, is doing and will do, day by day. He gives me strength for my daily tasks, and He guides me by His word. The Holy Spirit brings it to my remembrance, and if I didn't read it He wouldn't do that. We must study God's Word daily, we may not remember it, but God in His infinite mercy and grace aids us. Not only reading it but putting into practice. Thank you Gail for all the encouragement, may god continue to bless your ministry. x
