Getting Healthy in 2019 is Nothing Like Before

For decades we have associated “getting healthy” with eating less and sweating more. How is it, then, with so many of us applying these principles, are we fatter and sicker than we have ever been before?!  Let me put a disclaimer: I am not an expert, I’m just a regular person trying to figure out…

Episode 6: Surviving When Life Get’s Hard

Podcast note: I DID NOT EDIT my podcast.  I would never have gotten it out to you if I had.  So enjoy the ‘ums’ and my 3 yr old hanging out with me in the background. You’re welcome   Time moves differently when you’re raising kids! Life is no longer lived by the day, but…

FREE 30 Day Health Challenge

Ok so this last year has been a doozy.  I have gone through a rollercoaster of life events and emotions that have taught me so much about what TRUE HEALTH and SANITY really are!! I used to just get my workout in, eat mostly whole food, plant based, and just hope for the best.  I…

Essential Oils

Ok, So I am still relatively new to the world of Essential Oils.  I have only recently come from the thinking that they were just smell good fluff or snake oils.  I had no idea they actually improved anything. Until…. I broke my foot. I broke my foot, y’all. I was coming down the stairs…

Episode 5: Finding Happiness in Motherhood: The Love Of Learning

Being a mom can feel terribly thankless and overwhelming.  This is a job you have to find fulfillment in ALL on your own.  Of course, almost ANY profession calls for some inner reflection from time to time, but the world doesn’t really allow for encouragement to stay at home moms, and it most certainly doesn’t…

Episode 2: Self – Reliance Doesn’t Mean You ONLY Rely on YOURSELF!

  It took me a LONG time to learn what Self-Reliance actually meant.  Society paints a picture that we need to be totally independent, and asking others for help shows weakness!  NOT. THE. CASE! Being Self-Reliant means knowing yourself well enough to know your limits. It means knowing what you need to regain balance. It…

Happy 1st Birthday to Baby Number 5!

I wrote this post on another blog about a year ago, right after the birth of my FIFTH baby! She turned ONE today, and this last year flew by faster than ANY OTHER one of my children’s first year.  I suppose it is because she has been such a HUGE blessing (all of my children…
