What are the secrets of a happy life? That is the question writer Judith Fertig explores in this month’s feature article, “Life Lift: Being Happy from the Inside Out.” Who doesn’t want to feel happy all the time?

I feel continually blessed to be able to do what I love every day, and now that I have a business reason to travel the beautiful country roads of the Pocono Mountains and Warren County even more than before, I feel in even greater touch with nature and the possibilities for growth that a healthy life brings. Deep gratitude goes to all of our advertisers and readers for making it possible for us to reach thousands more natural health fans. I feel privileged to be able to collaborate with you all in educating individuals, families and our larger community in ways to live naturally healthy, happy and well. Participating in this endeavor comprises true happiness for me.

In honor of Father’s Day this month we naturally shine a spotlight on Men’s Wellness and Inspired Living. Being a father to an almost-14-year-old son has been the biggest blessing of my life. Our Inspiration department documents a great truth that men come to understand once they have children. Dad Clint Kelly offers proven advice on how to build strong father and daughter relationships that will last a lifetime. We also explore spiritual growth for men and profile the enthusiasm for healthy living that Joseph Kressley brings to his Green Earth Natural Foods store in Emmaus. No men’s issue would be complete without healthy summer grilling recipes for the self-proclaimed King of the Grill in every family.

Summer provides abundant opportunities to strengthen bonds with family and friends. It’s often memories of the unexpected, unplanned and unhurried summer moments that I always remember with a smile. Like shagging fly baseballs that my dad could hit a country mile. With my son, Garrett, it’s doing silly jumps from the dock into the lake, dropping into the river from a rope swing, and building the biggest inland lake and canal system on the beach. These are the glory days. Now another summer awaits… 

Here’s to making it great! Reid Boyer, Publisher
