Thanksgiving is around the corner and Christmas follows on Turkey Day's heels. All the hosts will be scurrying around trying to clean, organize and grocery shop to prepare for their guests. Let me help you create a safe, toxin-free environment for all those guests. 

Lung Cancer is starting to surpass breast cancer as the most dangerous disease affecting the most people. Why? Because we are creating toxic environments where SAHM...

Every year for Halloween we invite friends and family over to have fellowship, eat autumnal goodies, drink and have fun in costume. I always make a big batch of chili, homemade caramel apples, delicious, creamy squash dip and to wash it all down mulled hot apple cider. This year my chili recipe was especially spot on and I wanted to share for the upcoming holiday season. 

Ingredients:

1 lb grass fed ground beef

1 lb grass fed gro...

Well it is half way through October and we have seen post after post about breast cancer. I will be one of the first people to tell you about my story and all the symptoms I had, the signs leading up to my diagnosis, the ways I could have detected it earlier, support for when diagnosed.

But you know what I really wish someone would have shared with me?

Prevention.

I mean I remember reading a random magazine article or two about p...

Every morning I wake an hour or so before everyone else in my home. I started this ritual a few months ago and have grown to yearn for it. In these early mornings, I start my tea kettle and ready my mug of warm water with lemon (or other citrus) + Pink Himalayan sea salt.

Having hypothyroidism, I had to find other ways to have a mug of something warm first thing in the morning. I am supposed to let my system settle for the firs...

I am so thankful for you both. 

When I was a girl all I ever played at and pretended was “house” and being a mom. With the help of the Lord my dream came into fruition.

You both have changed my world.

You help me yearn to be better with every breath I take.

You remind me what a child-like faith is. You remind me how to trust, how to be brave and how to love everyone regardless of our differences.

You both give me courage, grit and...

Years ago when the gluten free train started my antennae has been up. Then I began my research. But I was always half on the train and half off. My health seemed pretty fine if I ate a sandwich or a bowl of pasta… so why bother? Or so I thought. 

Well one of the first things I found when I was diagnosed with breast cancer was how hurtful grains are. Grains, carbohydrates break down to sugar. No way around it.

Yes our nutrit...

I remember growing up and going over to friends’ houses to spend the night, the obligatory pizza was served and of course pop to go with it. Okay okay, here in Texas everything is a Coke. Or soda I guess. (When your parents are from Michigan, you are raised saying pop.)

But we never had pop in my house, we were one of the families who were becoming healthier and venturing out of the 70s microwave dinner phenomenon.

So, I never w...

This unicorn sparkle rainbow mermaid glitter gem is the best concoction on the planet.🌈💫🦄✨

I may sound overly dramatic, but this oil can calm a tension headache so fast, stop...

My hubby’s birthday was this week and I wanted to surprise him by freshening up our patio. We had this potentially lovely patio that just needed a little love to become our own oasis. We had nowhere to sit, we had nowhere to eat or set drinks, we had nowhere to accommodate guests. So with my idea and my surrogate MIL we made magic happen. After a trip to athome and Home Depot we had what we needed to transform our outdoor spac...

The dreaded statement.

On one hand I was grateful my daughter could vocalize that her ears hurt, on the other hand I hated what this meant.

You see 4 years ago, my daughter had fought about five ear infections in each ear… all before she turned one year old. We went from amoxicillin to augmentin and played the Tylenol game, which all meant me sitting up at night, half asleep, trying to keep her elevated, to avoid drainage to si...
