Whole30 is changing our lives

In September of 2016, after a disturbing lab report from the doctor, I knew I needed to make changes if I wanted to be healthy and live. I embarked on my first Whole30 (learn more about Whole30 here) and it was truly eye opening. First, I stuck to it for…

Why I deprive myself

Why I deprive myself

This post could also be called, “why I do the Whole30”. Kinda the same, right? 🙂 Isn’t that really what an elimination diet or a reset is? A form of depriving ourselves for a time to reach a goal? We take away an immediate desire to gain a long term…


My Whole 30 Experience

Have you heard of Whole 30? I have and I am so glad! About a 8 months ago, a friend of mine embarked on the Whole 30 journey and while I wanted to join her, the timing wasn’t right. About 50 days ago she was doing Whole 30 again, and…

Loving the Little Years – Chapter 4

Chapter 4 of Loving the Little Years is titled, “Fruit of the Spirit Speed Quiz”. It has provided another opportunity to look into my heart. The string of quotes will make it very clear what hit me while reading this chapter. The author makes herself clear: * “My point here…

Chapter 2 – Growing in Grace in the Midst of the “Rock Tumbler”

This chapter is titled “In the Rock Tumbler”. What a perfect title. If you have little ones, you surely understand this title and even find it a little humorous. When we as “rocks” sit by ourselves with little friction, we are refined in a much different way than we are…
