I’m humbled and thrilled that you are here! I’m excited about this opportunity to share with you how my Lord Jesus has been and continues to work in my life.
I’m formally educated in public relations, advertising, marketing and accounting. I’ve pursued each of these career paths as well as a stint in interior design and as a group aerobics instructor. Yeah, I’ve tried a lot of things! Yet, as I have planned my course, truly the Lord has been and continues to direct my steps and lead me down paths I could have never imagined…
And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them. – Isaiah 42:16 (ESV)A long-time interest of mine has been health and nutrition. At the age of 18, I stopped drinking soft drinks and unknowingly took the first step through a door to pursuing vibrant health. During my early 20’s I dabbled in The Zone and Perricone Diets. By my mid-twenties I settled into a somewhat healthy version of the standard American diet. It was around this time that I was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia and began having some other unusual symptoms. For the next six years I embarked on a learning expedition that led me to eliminate gluten and refined sugar from my diet; reduce toxic chemicals in my home and beauty products; discern what real, nutrient dense foods are and develop a lifestyle of truly healthy living…physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
By no means am I an expert, I have no formal training/education in health and nutrition. Just years of personal experience marked by many missteps, stumbles and falls (figuratively and literally!), yet always seeking the truth. Therefore, I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me (Romans 15:18). I pray that my words and actions will be a show-and-tell of God’s goodness and beauty. That as I seek Him, I will walk in the work He has prepared for me (Ephesians 2:10). That I will celebrate His amazing grace revealed in the simple and the extraordinary.
For more background information, please visit my previous blog: Learning to Breathe, a journal of sorts that was a time of looking back and weeping forward in hope, fully trusting God’s mercy to do what He does…take the uncertain, the unlovely, the broken and transform it into something beautiful. He’s better to me than I deserve!
Wishing you simple sweet blessings,
