Growing through fear

My husband and I are looking to make some big life changes.  And they scare me a little bit.  As I was sharing some of this thought process with a friend, she easily stated, “Ya, but remember we grow through fear”.  Well, duh. Sometimes you need someone else to say something, that you normally teach, … Continue reading

Are you wealthy?

One of the lifelong (dare I say world long) struggles with humans is understanding and/or finding our life purpose.  We, as people, lay awake at night trying to decipher what the hell we are here for.  We look to prayer, our pastors, the bible, society, each other- yet we still continuously ruminate, worry and fret. … Continue reading

Ways to get your happy back

Many (MANY) of us have times of ‘funk’.  Where we may or may not know what the hell is bothering us, but we just can’t seem to move past it.  It can last minutes, hours or days.  If it lasts longer than a week you should probably consult your doctor.  What are some things we … Continue reading

Practically Paleo Bread

I have been tweaking a bread recipe that a friend gave me a while back.  The original recipe is for a delicious gluten-free bread (so yummy) and so I thought I would use it as a basis for a Paleo bread since I am on a 30 day Paleo challenge. THIS BREAD IS SO DELICIOUS.  … Continue reading

Heart Attack Turkey

This Turkey IS delicious.  However, for someone who normally doesn’t eat much fat…it is definitely a system changer.  Happy belated Thanksgiving!

In the meantime, I made an apricot pot roast that was to die … Continue reading
