Tell us your story:

Puberty can be a sly deceiver. We had attributed all of our sons symptoms to it- his insatiable appetite, his thinness, his exhaustion. Then one day, by Gods grace, his sunken stomach & tightly cinched belt revealed a hidden problem. The doctor confirmed what we had hoped was only a sneaking suspicion-Type 1 Diabetes. Today our family cuts out sugary desserts & cuts up veggies and fruits. We plant, pick, preserve, prepare, & portion! Each day we try & strive for a healthier family!
Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your family is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
