Seek the Peace and Prosperity of the City in which I have placed you. Jeremiah 29:7 .‫ יִ ְהיֶ ה לָ כֶ ם ָשלֹום‬,‫לֹומּה‬ ָ ‫ כִ י ִב ְש‬:‫יְ הוָ ה‬-‫ ֶאל‬,‫ וְ ִה ְת ַפלְ לּו ַב ֲע ָדּה‬,‫ ֲא ֶשר ִהגְ לֵ ִיתי ֶא ְתכֶ ם ָש ָמה‬,‫שלֹום ָה ִעיר‬-‫ת‬ ְ ‫ז וְ ִד ְרׁשּו ֶא‬ ‫יִ ְר ְמיָ הּו‬

P SA L M 3 4: 1 7-1 8 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. ‫מאֶרֶ ץ זִכ ְרָ ם‬ ֵ ‫הכ ְרִ ית‬ ַ ְ‫ ל‬   ;‫שׂי רָ ע‬ ֵ ‫ב ֹע‬ ְּ ,‫פְּנ ֵי י ְהו ָה‬  ‫יז‬. ‫הצִּילָם‬ ִ ,‫צ ָרֹותָם‬-‫מכָּל‬ ִ ‫ ּו‬   ;ַ ‫מע‬ ֵ ‫ש‬ ָ ׁ ‫ ו ַיהו ָה‬,‫צָע ֲקּו‬  ‫יח‬. Several years ago, I became friends with Martin Luther King, III after a chance encounter with him as he passed through Memphis. He invited me to come to Atlanta to tour the King Center, and it was there that I was introduced to the incredible, rich history of the King family. As a Memphian, I was eight years old when Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated. My perspective of Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement was shaped by my own “white southern world” and the impact it had on me as a child. I was 50 when I toured the King Center, much has changed in the country since I was eight, much has changed in my understanding and in my heart of my southern world, but nothing in the history books or my experiences taught me the lessons and insights I would learn from my visit with Martin. Martin spent much of his time talking not about his father, but of his grandparents Martin Luther King, Sr., Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, known as “Daddy King” to his congregation, and his grandmother affectionately known as “Bunch.” We toured the parsonage of Ebenezer Baptist Church, the childhood home of Dr. King and the hub of the King family life. It was the life and love story of Daddy King and Bunch that introduced me to the AfricanAmerican experience in America in the 1920s

and ‘30s. Bunch was the daughter of Rev. A.D. Williams, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church; Daddy King was the son of a sharecropper in rural Georgia who moved to Atlanta to obtain the education required to be a preacher. They married, built a family, built a church, fought for Civil Rights in the 1930s and ‘40s in Atlanta, and made it their mission to teach and prepare their children to take the fight for civil rights to the rest of America. Daddy King and Bunch lost their son to that fight; Martin lost a father to that fight. Daddy King lost a wife to that fight when in June of 1974 an African-America man walked into Ebenezer Baptist and killed Bunch as she was playing the organ for Sunday morning services. When I first met Martin, he shared the story of the death of his grandmother, explaining that much of his ministry was shaped by the fact that a white man killed his father, and a black man killed his grandmother. He made the statement that, “he can either hate all white and black men or he can recognize that there are evil men of both races. Martin shared what Daddy King did after the death of Bunch, he called the family together, and preached that no matter what someone does to you, there is never reason to hate. Ambassador Andrew J. Young, in his introduction to Rev. Martin Luther King Sr.’s autobiography, Daddy King, shared with us what he witnessed as the King family gathered after the death of Bunch. He quotes Daddy King: I know it’s hard to understand, but we have to give thanks for what we have left. God wants us to love one another and not hate. His grandchildren were asking the questions that Job asked, and Daddy King was answering them with the faith of the prophets. Daddy King led

everybody in prayer, then said to them, ‘Now get out of here, and remember: Don’t ever stoop so low that you let anybody make you hate.’ The message of Daddy King is a message that we all need to hear and strive to practice. That doesn’t mean that change doesn’t need to happen, in fact improvement and change is the measure of success in all of us. In the Youth Impact writing series, Langston Myers writes about her cousin Shelley Collier whose life was devoted to young people, coaching them to improve and overcome difficulties. Lesley Harris Colvett writes about the love Sheriff’s Deputy Vernon Greer has for his role as a police escort for Carnival Memphis, as they reach out to help those in need. The cover of the magazine was actually printed in the July issue of 4Memphis as part our monthly highlight of the artwork of David Lynch as he captures moving and unique images of Memphis on canvas. The nation’s recent focus on unfortunate deaths as a result of police officers has highlighted the continued mistrust of police departments in certain urban communities. This struggle was brought to Memphis as protestors occupied the I-40 Bridge to draw attention to their frustrations. We chose to run David Lynch’s painting to highlight the success of the Memphis Police Department and the protestor’s ability to work through the tension and mistrust while exercising their Constitutional Right to protest. Daddy King devoted his life to equality while dogmatically insisting to never hate. I believe he would have been proud of Memphis, the city where his son gave his life to further the cause of equality without hate. Seek the Peace and Prosperity of Memphis, Jim Walker

MEMPHIS

Publisher’s Note: I have purchased and given away dozens of copies of Daddy King on Amazon.com for as little as $2.00. The book is no longer in print, and while I am glad to be able to purchase them, it saddens me that every copy I have purchased is a copy that been pulled from a public or school library. This great work of American history should be required reading for every student attending school in America.

youthimpact WRITING SERIES

any people can look up to their coaches as mentors. Just imagine how one would view their coach if she were Pat Summitt, eight time NCAA championship winner with the most wins for college basketball in NCAA history, who all the while maintained a 100% graduation rate. Her success already causes many to look up to this Lady Vols coach, but her players admire her for completely different reasons. Shelley Sexton Collier, who played for Tennessee’s first NCAA championship team in 1987, says that Coach Summitt taught the team character, loyalty, and trust, never through her words, but through her actions.

Shelley Collier started her basketball career as a guard for Lake City High School. Being a standout player, she was approached by colleges all over the country. She chose the University of Tennessee not only to stay close to home, but because she thought “...it would be an honor to play for Pat.” Something obviously stood out about Coach Summitt to Shelley, even if it were only her very impressive record as a player and a coach. As Shelley grew as a player, she began to realize that Pat was a “game-changer” and that she was different than any other coach.

In 1987, the first year Pat lead her team to win the NCAA tournament, Shelley scored a total of 217 points with an average of 8 points per game. The Lady Vols only lost 5 out of 27 games that year. Shelley says, “We really wanted to win for her [Pat Summitt] and for all of the women who played before us.” Even though it was Coach Summitt’s 1st time winning the championship she stayed humble and gave credit to the team saying, “I do not think I could go without recognizing that it was a tremendous team effort... has been for the last three weeks. This team has played as hard and as smart as I could ask any team to play.”

Many players didn’t want basketball to end for them after college. Coach Summitt inspired 54 of her former players to become coaches, including Shelley. Shelley coaches basketball for Webb High School in Knoxville. Webb is renowned for having a fantastic women’s basketball program, winning five state championships and being runners up three times. 26 / 4Memphis

Being a Physical Education major, Shelley planned on having a career centered around athletics before she played for Tennessee, but it was Pat and their shared passion for the game that led her to become a coach. She has coached for 26 years, 19 years at Webb, and has coached three of her daughters on varsity.

Shelley is a mother of four incredibly athletic daughters: Katie, a sophomore at Middle Tennessee State University; Sydney, a senior; Casey, a sophomore; and Britney, an eighth-grader. Katie has continued to play basketball in college while the rest of Shelley’s daughters play for Webb. When Katie was a senior, it wasn’t uncommon for three of them to be on the court at the same time. Shelley says that Pat not only affects the way she coaches, but the way she parents her daughters.

In 2011, Pat Summitt announced that she had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. She retired a year later in 2012. Shelley and Pat remained very close after college and considered her family. Pat began as her mentor but as time passed, she slowly became her friend. Throughout Pat’s entire sickness, Shelley remained close. She says, “I tried to visit her as much as I could. When she was able to work out, we would work out. I just tried to spend a lot of time with her, all the way up to the very end. Not a day goes by when I don’t think about her.”

Pat died June 28, 2016, but her legacy lives on. She lives on through Shelley. She lives on through Katie, Sydney, Casey, and Britney. She lives on through everyone who Shelley coached. They were all touched someway or somehow by Pat. Everyone who played for Pat, even their children and their own players, was affected by Pat. She understood why it is important to be a role model, because thousands of people can be impacted by one person, one teacher, one coach.

Author’s Note: Since the Collier family are my cousins, I have been given an insight into Shelley’s time as a player and her relationship with Pat. I got to see, firsthand, how Pat affected the Collier family, and to an extent, my family and why this story is important to me.

Leading the Krewe for Carnival! By Lesley Harris Colvett; Photography Keith Renard/Skipworth Photography

D

eemed the “Party with a Purpose,” Carnival Memphis has been a Mid-South celebration since 1931, recognizing and promoting industries that have a major economic impact on the community while promoting the city of Memphis as a great place to live and work. Carnival is celebrated in Memphis the first week of June as the Grand Krewe Royalty participates in the Carnival Children’s Charity Initiative, which was developed in 1999 to assist those organizations who improve the quality of life for children of all ethnic and social backgrounds in Memphis and the Mid-South, and to spread the spirit of Carnival throughout the community. This year, a record amount of $126,000 was raised for local charities, and since 1999, Carnival has donated over $2.1 million to local children’s charities. Carnival week runs smoothly and efficiently thanks to the deputies from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office that make up the Carnival motorcade escort. The motorcade safely and efficiently leads the Carnival Memphis King, Queen, President and Boll Weevils every day of Carnival week as they make almost fifty visits to local children’s charities, retirement communities and nursing homes throughout Shelby County. According to Executive Director of Carnival Memphis Ed Galfsky, “without their service we would be unable to make half of those visits.” One of those police escorts is Sheriff Deputy Vernon Greer, who has worked with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office since January 1991. Vernon was born in Chicago, Illinois, but grew up in Memphis and graduated from Northside High School in 1989. Vernon loves Memphis and loves to serve. “While attending elementary school a policeman came to a career day, talked with us about his job, and it was at that moment, I was inspired to be a police officer/deputy,” Vernon recalled. He said that one of his favorite duties is being a police escort in the Carnival Memphis motorcade during carnival week. “I have been involved in Carnival Memphis for seven years, and from the very beginning, I understood the need and was very proud to be a part of this act of kindness,” said Vernon. Vernon’s role to escort the Carnival Memphis motorcade to the numerous organizations and charities throughout the city gives him joy and makes him proud. “I know it sounds simple to the average person, but carnival week gives the people hope. That one week is what a lot of them live for,” Vernon said. According to Ed Galfsky, what is so remarkable is that Vernon and all the others on the motor’s unit, take time to engage and be involved with the children and adults that that they visit. “I believe they make a

The Carnival Memphis check presentation with the deputies difference, especially with many of the children and teenagers we are able to see at organizations like Knowledge Quest, Emmanuel Center, Neighborhood Christian Centers, Streets and RedZone Ministries, and several others that are helping children in our community,” Ed added. Growing up in Memphis in a family of nine, Vernon knows firsthand the importance of Carnival Memphis. “We need organizations like Carnival Memphis. Being in a family of nine and living off one income, my mother and father instilled a lot of Christian values in us, but at times faced challenges to provide for our family,” Vernon said. “At times we went through what I call the lean times, but it was the Neighborhood Christian Center (NCC) that helped us through those tough times. It’s because of organizations like Carnival Memphis who support the vision of NCC through significant monetary donations that make it possible for families to get the assistance they need.” Putting a smile on someone’s face is priceless for these police escorts. “Usually when people come in contact with police officers something bad has happened, they are being pulled over and issued a ticket for a traffic violation, or maybe even arrested. As police officers/deputies, we feel that most people hate to see us coming or going, but for one week it really feels great to know that we can put a smile on someone’s face,” Vernon said. Vernon enjoys Carnival week from beginning to end. “I have enjoyed meeting different people, such as a different king and queen each year, and the people that are a part of this great event. I have enjoyed the feeling of being as one to accomplish a common goal, and that is to help the less fortunate. I have enjoyed the Boll Weevils, who do a lot of charity work as well,” he said. “Through my life experiences, I have learned the importance of having compassion and helping those who are less fortune, even in my duties as a law enforcement officer. Organizations like Carnival Memphis are near and dear to my heart. My life is a testimony that such programs are vital to the city of Memphis” Vernon said.

From Pro

Football to Pro Foodie A CONVERSATION WITH REGGIE KELLY By Sandi Butler Hughes; photography courtesy of Reggie Kelly For former NFL player Reggie Kelly, returning to his hometown of Aberdeen, Mississippi, to host summer football camps for kids was an ideal way to give back to his hometown. But it was his Southern hospitality and Mississippi roots that led him from football to the food business. Reggie is a self-described “country boy from Aberdeen,� who found success both on the field and off. He graduated Aberdeen High School with honors, and attended Mississippi State on an athletic scholarship. While there, his academic achievements continued as an Arthur Ashe Award nominee, consistently being on the SEC Academic Honor Roll, and graduating with a degree in Industrial Technology. After playing football for the Bulldogs, he was tapped in the second round of the NFL draft by

the Atlanta Falcons. He played five years for Atlanta and eight years for the Cincinnati Bengals. During and after his very successful NFL career, Reggie always found time to be involved in community service projects. With his high-school sweetheart and wife Sheila, Reggie sponsored football camps to reward and encourage young athletes who also exhibited excellence in academics. Reggie recruited NFL stars and coaches to

August 2016 / 51


come to Aberdeen and be a part of the camps. After long, hot, hard days of working with the kids, the Kellys and their families cooked for camp volunteers. “In true Southern tradition, you can’t do anything without having great food, right?” Reggie laughed. “They couldn’t stop raving about how good the food is down South, the flavors and the different recipes.” A wife of one of the player/volunteers was so impressed by the unique Southern flavors that she encouraged Reggie to consider bottling the “down-South-flavor.” Realizing the recipes and special ingredients that were a part of their food heritage were actually unique to others, Reggie and Sheila founded Kyvan Foods to bring their Southern concoctions to a broader market. In the off-season, the couple began researching and learning about the commercial food business, and in 2011 Kyvan Foods was launched. Like much of what Reggie does, Kyvan is rooted in family: “Kyvan” is a blend of his children’s names, Kyla (age 12) and Kavan (age 10). “Just like any parent, I want to leave a lasting legacy behind for my kids; I want to give my kids a head start in life, and pass the baton to them so they can go much further than I could have gone,” Reggie explained. “This is not something I’m haphazardly doing to pass the time away. I’m actively involved in the company, in the day-to-day operations, and I’m working very hard to ensure that I set the right foundation for a successful business. And, I’m grateful to God everyday for the opportunity to do so.” Even though Kyla and Kavan are still young, they are being exposed the business that will one day be theirs. “Sometimes I take the kids to meetings to show them the importance of presentation and great customer service. I’m teaching them at a young age when you do the little things right, the big ones will follow.” A wonderful philosophy to learn, regardless of age. Reggie also shares his principles on success in his book, Prepared: Body - Mind Spirit. Using timeless lessons, he teaches that the measure of success is defined by what we are willing and able to do, despite our surroundings. This is also a concept he taught at the youth football camps, that regardless of being from a small town or not being born into a prominent family, those kids can achieve their dreams. He notes, “Be it the gates of Heaven or the goalposts of the Super Bowl, we are not worthy, nor ready to stand before either until we are first…prepared.” For Kyvan Foods, they have adopted the slogan, “Appreciate The Goodness.” While that certainly applies to the scrumptious salsas, sauces, rubs, and more, it goes beyond just the foods. “When we started this company, my wife and I wanted to think of a slogan that would represent Kyvan Foods, would represent good Southern cooking, and products that touch your soul,” he said. “It just clicked in our heads, when you taste our products, when you experience the South, you will appreciate the goodness of it. We are putting products on the market that represent the Kelly family, that represent the South, which I love so dearly, and when you experience our products you have to appreciate everything that they represent, which is goodness.” In other words, the marketing slogan doesn’t stop with the goodness of food. “We have quality people, a quality team, and giving back to the community, plus the quality food, we believe that once you experience us, you will appreciate all the goodness of Kyvan Foods.” From the gridiron to the barbecue grill, Reggie Kelly is sharing his unique brand of Southern heritage and flavor, straight from his heart. Kyvan Foods is available locally at numerous Kroger stores in Memphis and North Mississippi. For specific locations or to order online visit kyvan82.com.

Reggie’s Baby Back Ribs “If you’re a barbecue fanatic like I am, you can’t go without having some baby back ribs!” 2 slabs of baby back ribs 1 gallon of apple cider or apple juice Kyvan Dry BBQ Rub Kyvan Sweet BBQ Sauce Clean ribs and remove the thin film on bottom of ribs. Season ribs with desired amounts of Dry BBQ Rub and then place ribs in a deep aluminum pan. Pour apple cider over the ribs and let marinate overnight in refrigerator, covered. Before cooking, remove from apple cider and slightly pat ribs dry. Add more rub if desired. (Reggie notes the contrast in flavors of the sweet from the apple juice and the spicy from the dry rub gives ribs a wonderful, unique taste.) Allow ribs to come to room temperature. Set grill to 250-275 degrees (Gas or charcoal? Reggie emphatically says, “Charcoal! Got to be charcoal! You get tons of flavor with charcoal, and I like to throw in some wood chips, mesquite or hickory chips. They add just a little more flavor, and the more flavor, the better.”) Let ribs cook for at least two hours (do not flip!) and then brush with Sweet BBQ Sauce and cook another 30 minutes. (“Low and slow,” Reggie advises for fall-off-the-bone kind of ribs.) Remove ribs from grill and enjoy the Southern flavors!

The Memphis in May Barbecue Festival seems to be the official kick-off of the Mid-South grilling season, and it continues through summer holidays and into tailgating at a prime spot on Tiger Lane. This month, 4Memphis turned to local restaurants for their recipes and tips to successfully cook over a fire. From farmer’s markets produce to a lean cut of beef, the flavor is simply better when it’s been kissed by a flame. Ignite your imagination and fire up the grill!

Simple seasoning is all that is required to bring out the flavors of high-quality products. The most important factor when preparing this dish is the quality of products you use. Purchasing local produce not only ensures higher quality flavor, it also benefits your local community.

Grilled Red Snapper with Grilled Cherry Tomato Beurre Blanc from Itta Bena

Grilled Tomato & Broccolini Salad from Salud! Cooking School at Whole Foods on Poplar

ITTA BENA

Grilled Red Snapper with Grilled Cherry Tomato Beurre Blanc Red Snapper: 1 skinless snapper filet, 7 to 9 ounce 1 clove garlic, minced Salt and pepper Trim the fish of any thin or loose pieces, season with salt and pepper. Spray filet lightly with PAM Spray. On a clean, hot grill, lay the fish filet on the grill facing 10 o’clock, cook 2 minutes. Carefully lift filet and turn toward 2 o’clock. Cook an additional 2 minutes. Flip filet over, keep filet facing 2, cook an additional 2 minutes. Finally, lift filet and turn to face 10 o’clock, and cook 2 more minutes. This should be all the time necessary to cook fish, and will provide perfect diamond grill marks. If you have a thicker piece of fish you may need to finish it in the oven. 56 / 4Memphis

Beurre Blanc: 1 clove garlic, minced 8 cherry tomatoes 1 shallot, chopped 1 bunch parsley 1 teaspoon white peppercorns 1 cup white wine 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar 1 pound butter, cubed 2 skewers Salt to taste Skewer cherry tomatoes and grill 2 to 3 minutes, turning occasionally. You want a light char. Remove from skewers and combine with shallot, parsley stems, peppercorns, remaining clove garlic, white wine and vinegar in a medium sauce pot. Set over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly, and continue cooking until liquid has reduced by 3/4. Add butter, 1 cube at a time, while whisking. Continue until all butter has been emulsified and incorporated. Pour sauce through a strainer to

remove vegetables herbs and peppercorns. Season with salt to taste. This is an emulsified sauce, and therefore must be kept in a warm place. Cold will cause it to solidify, and too hot will cause it to break. SALUD! COOKING SCHOOL AT WHOLE FOODS ON POPLAR

The next best thing to having hand-cut prime steaks at Folk’s Folly is having them in your home. Stop by Humphrey’s Prime Cut Shoppe, adjacent to the steak house, and pick up handcut meats, seasonings and sides. As summer winds down, turn up the grill and follow Folk’s Folly’s founder Humphrey Folk’s best practices for a legendary meal. PREP. Remove Humphrey’s steaks 30 min. prior to placing on heat. Brush both sides with olive oil, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Grilled Romaine Salad from Loflin Yard

reserved marinade. Arrange the vegetables on a lightly oiled grill and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until nicely charred. Baste the onion and bell pepper as it cooks with any additional marinade left in the bowl. Coarsely chop the onion rings and bell pepper into bite size pieces. For plating, arrange the broccolini rabe on a serving platter. Garnish with charred tomatoes, grilled onions and peppers. If desired, garnish with balsamic vinegar and more cracked black pepper. May be served warm or at room temperature. LOFLIN YARD

Grilled Romaine Salad 1 head romaine lettuce, halved lengthwise 1 large French baguette slice, halved lengthwise 4 garlic cloves, minced 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved ¼ cup Kalamata olives, pitted 1 shallot, thinly sliced

Olive oil Balsamic vinegar Asiago cheese, freshly shaved or grated Sea salt and cracked black pepper Mix tomatoes, shallots, 2 cloves garlic, salt, and olives in a mixing bowl. Season lettuce halves and baguette with remaining garlic and oil, salt and pepper. Place cut side down on hot grill for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately transfer romaine to a serving plate. Pour tomato mixture over romaine. Drizzle salad and baguette with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and black pepper. Top with shaved Asiago cheese.

GRILL. Upon preheating grill on high, sear steaks for 2-3 min. on each side. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking, flipping steaks every 3 min. until desired temperature is reached. POKE. Though a meat thermometer works (see temperatures below), gauge a steak’s temperature with the “poke” test. When hand is relaxed, poke muscle between thumb and index finger to compare to a rare steak. Stretch hand halfway to compare to a medium rare temperature; and stretch fully to compare to medium. A fist compares to well done.

Combat the Effects of a

Sun-Soaked Summer by Purvisha Patel, M.D., F.A.A.D., F.A.S.D.S., F.A.C.M.S, Photography by iStockphoto.com

A

s summer vacation is coming to an end, you may be still carrying remnants from a sun-soaked summer at the beach, boating at the lake and/or enjoying extended hours outdoors. At this point you may begin to notice dark spots on your skin and discoloration due to sun exposure and damage. Sunspots tend to show up on parts of the body that are exposed to the sun most often, such as the face, hands, shoulders and chest. They are usually accompanied by other signs of sun damage, such as fine lines, dry and thinning skin. Although sunspots usually develop on older people after years of sun exposure, young people can get them as well. The good news is there are plenty options and solutions available to eliminate these sun spots and combat the effects of skin damage.

fine lines, minimizes the appearance of large pores, boosts collagen production and fades the appearance of scars. Active lightening ingredients in Visha Skin Care are: · Kojic Acid is a skin conditioning agent that functions as an antioxidant and effectively lightens skin. It reduces the appearance of freckles, age spots and other unwanted pigmentation such as photoaging. · Licorice Extract provides UV absorption protection and natural brightening effects. It also soothes, calm and reduces inflammation. · Niacinamide treats uneven skin tone and mitigate acne and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. It is also a great ingredient for those struggling with both wrinkles and breakouts. · Azaelaic Acid treats acne and alleviates rosacea.

1. Laser Photorejuvenation Photorejuvenation (IPL-Intense Pulsed Light) laser treatments consists of a series of three to five treatments, usually one every three to six weeks. This non-invasive procedure reduces wrinkles, visible facial blood vessels, acne scars, rosacea, sun damage, large pores and diffuses redness. Benefits of Photorejuvenation: · Lightening and removing sun spots, age spots, and brown blotches on the face, neck, chest, hands and other areas of the body. · Lightening and reducing redness, rosacea, dilated blood vessels and “broken” blood vessels on the face, neck and chest. · Improves skin texture through collagen stimulation and improves pore size minimally by temporarily reducing oiliness.

2. Skin Lightening Agents A. Visha Skin Care Advanced Correcting Serum is a 5-in-1 skin care product that diminishes sun spots and hyperpigmentation, helps soften and correct

62 / 4Memphis

B. Lemon - Apply a slice of fresh lemon or lime directly on the sunspots for 10 to 15 minutes daily. The acid helps in lightening the spots and removing dead skin cells. Results are usually seen after daily use for two or more weeks.

3. Sunscreen To protect your skin from further damage use sunscreen rated for SPF 30 or higher. For maximum results try quick-absorbing formulas that contain chemical ingredients that sink into your skin. Some ingredients to look out for are clear zinc oxide, Mexoryl SX, Helioples and AvoTriple. Apply every two hours for the best results.

4. Aloe Vera Applying aloe vera gel on affected areas twice a day can help heal sundamaged skin. For best results, apply sooner rather than later. Dr. Purvisha Patel is a board-certified dermatologist, Mohs and cosmetic surgeon, owner of Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Associates and creator of Visha Skin Care.

B U SYNE SS IS BAD FOR M A R R IAG E by Andy Savage, Highpoint Church, andysavage.com Guilty as charged. I’m too stinking busy. When people ask me how things are going, my default answer, sadly, is, “Busy.” And I know I’m not alone. Countless couples come to me with marriage problems from the minor spat to the, “we’ve called our lawyers.” Among the myriad of marital ills is a subtle enemy called busyness. Busyness rarely gets the blame but is often the source of lots of problems. As we enter this new school year, consider adopting these three proven ways to beat the beast of busyness. 1. Schedule a regular date night NOW. Until it’s on the calendar claiming its needed time and space, it will 64 / 4Memphis

not happen. Without a plan, you will end up on the couch checking Facebook and wondering why you are drifting apart. 2. Fight for margin. Margin is the empty space on a document that makes it easy to read. It’s also the empty space in your calendar that makes life more enjoyable. Margin requires saying “NO” to certain opportunities to provide space for important things to happen that will never request a time-slot. Like that much needed conversation neither you or your spouse knew you needed.

3. Hurry home. No, I’m not encouraging you to earn a speeding ticket! However, I am encouraging you to keep home on your mind. Establishing a high value to get back home with your spouse empowers greater discipline in your workday and hobbies. It also sends a powerful message to your spouse that says, “I can’t wait to reconnect with you at the end of each day.” Remember great marriages never happen spontaneously. Be intentional!
