No More Babies!----ADOPT???

Do you ever say something and then wonder what you were thinking? Well that has happened to me. My husband, Rob, and I have three boys together, Justin-9, Ian-4 and Aaron-2. I get asked all the time, "Well when are you going to try for a girl?" "Oh come on, just one more." We'll my answer is NO! I have been pregnant 4 times, one baby I lost in pregnancy and the other three boys I had to have c-sections for. To put it humorously, if I have anymore my uterus will fall out! Bahahahahaha! Well let's just say God has a sense of humor. Keep reading!

Digging in Even Deeper

Do you ever have times in your spiritual life when you are thriving? I mean you feel so close to God it is as if He has been over at your house visiting with you all day? I love times like those. But one thing in my 25 years of being a Christian is that those times do not always happen. There are times when we got through a spiritual desert. As much as  I dislike those times, I don't know if it has just taken me longer than most to figure it out or if I am getting wiser in my aging but I come out of those times in the desert with a great understanding of something I needed to change.

In 2016 I want to be a prayer WARRIOR. I want to be so close to God that people can not be around me without feeling His presence in my life. I want to serve God in a greater capacity than I ever had. I want to breathe every minutes with God! So how can I do this?

My Life Update

Hey guys! So it has been FOREVER since I last posted! So much has went on in my life since October. I have been doing a lot of personal development here lately and one thing that I have been doing is tapping into is my happiness. The question was asked, "When were you happiest?" "Can you think of a time when you absolutely LOVED what you did everyday?" And I thought, yes! When I blogged! So here I am. I am working on my schedule about what to bring to each of you and share what all I have been through here lately in hopes that it can help you too! First however I want to share the update from my last post Beginning the Journey. Be ready to be blown away!

Pay Attention!

Now that we are starting our weight loss journey together it is time to first lay down a rule- PAY ATTENTION to your body! Do not do anything crazy or extreme. No crash dieting, no extreme changes, no crazy or unsafe exercise. I noticed as I did my sit ups that I had a little "knot" that would pop up in the middle of my stomach. I watched and noticed over time it was getting larger- time to talk to the ole doctor. So I did and guess what. It is a hernia! Now I have to set up surgery to get it repaired. I could have caused a lot of damage and pain later down the road if I would have ignored it. Pay attention to your body guys and gals!

Beginning The Journey

Okay so it's time to admit it. I am over weight. But about two weeks ago I decided to stop wishing and start doing something about it. Today I will share with you what I have been doing and allow you to jump in on the journey if you like. Who knows, maybe we both need the motivation to keep going forward! If you would like to lose some weight too, lets do this together. IMAGINE YOURSELF (MYSELF) IN 6 MONTHS!! Let's get started.

Evicting Cancer Causing Agents- Part 2

I last shared with you last about why I am working to evict cancer causing agents from my home. For those of you who have waited for the women's deodorant recipe, here it is. And once again, IT WORKS & no cancer causing agents! (Plus it doesn't burn or make me itch like other deodorants do.) ;)

Evicting Cancer Causing Agents- Part 1

Call me over protective. Call me a health nut. Call me plain crazy. I don't care. I am on a mission to cut all of the known cancer causing agents out of my house! As I write this to you my 82 year old grandmother lays in a bed in the hospital with anywhere from days to weeks to live. Why? CANCER! She had melanoma several years ago in a mole and she had it removed. It came back into the lymph nodes in her neck and they removed all of the lymph nodes and muscle in her neck but now its back and it is in her brain. It absolutely is killing me to see her laying there like she is. It is killing me to see my father cry over the thought of what is coming. While I may not be able to prevent environment cancer causing agents from being present, I can prevent from putting them into my body and on my skin. So today, I am kicking deodorant! I'm not going to be stinking because I have made a D.I.Y deodorant for both me and my husband AND IT WORKS!! Plus, it has NO cancer causing agents!
