Welcome to this online space where you can find hope and healing in your daily emotional, spiritual, and physical health struggles through the open and honest stories of my own journey in these areas. Together we will find freedom through Christ, sisterhood, and the occasional healthy recipe.
I’m so glad you’re here! Let me tell you a little about myself. I’m a wife, mom, writer, and Christian. My mission is to create health for body, mind, and soul in myself and others. I love green smoothies, my dogs Diego (pictured) and Roxy, and my very introverted cat, Homer.
Even more than those favorites, I adore these people:
My husband’s tattoos represent hope and awareness for my children’s chronic health issues. My son has epilepsy, while my daughter suffers from Type 1 diabetes. Because of these difficult struggles and my own continued recovery from food addiction, I’ve felt God leading me to focus more on health in this online space.
If you landed here in search of one of my creations, they can still be found here. However, moving forward I’ll be discussing more health related topics covering these incredibly important areas of life: Body, Mind, and Soul.
I kept telling God I needed to wait until I’ve completely met my goals in these areas before trying to serve others, but He didn’t seem to like that answer. So here we are on this exciting quest for healthier bodies, emotional well-being, and unprecedented faith together.
I have overcome drug and alcohol addictions, mental health issues, and deep struggles with Christianity. My faith is stronger than ever and He is already teaching me a few things about how we can find freedom from the sometimes overwhelming stronghold food can have on us.
- Health is about so much more than the food we eat. I’m currently training to be a health coach and we discuss on a daily basis the importance of other life aspects over the food we consume: relationships, finding work we love, spiritual practice… These topics will continue here as they have since this blog’s inception.
- If we follow hard after Christ, freedom from addiction can be found. As soon as I made the decision to begin the transformation here as that still small voice whispered, He moved me from the food addict label I’ve worn for far too long to the beautiful beginning stages of recovery. In the past month, I’ve stepped away from sugar (my archenemy) and lost over 10 pounds.
- Serving others in areas we struggle with is an amazing way to heal ourselves as well. When I started writing here over two years ago, I was in a daily fight with depression and anxiety. These are still issues that rear their ugly heads at times, but since I started openly sharing my testimony in order to help others, those days are truly fewer and farther between. As we help each other here, we can find the freedom we so desperately need.
He expects us to take care of these temples we are wandering around in. Let’s do this together…
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
~1 Corinthians 6:19-20
