Five Reasons I Love the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle {Limited Time & Only $29.97!}

Natural living, organic gardening, herbal remedies, teas and tinctures and nourishing foods...aahhh...refreshing or overwhelming?

For me, they are both.

I love to learn & live this way but I tend to get overwhelmed too. At one point, my blogging was going to be all about my attempts in these areas, but then I realized they are passions & not my primary focus.

While most of my writing is focused on living by faith, all of it is ultimately about living for Him. At the end of the day, healthy living fits naturally within this context.

Therefore, I continue to love and learn all things Healthy Living, but I leave the wisdom and expert advise to others, such as GNOWFGLINS, Nourished Kitchen & Bulk Herb Store. They provide great recipes, details on why to engage in these practices and how they can improve your health.

They are also contributors to the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle which is an utterly amazing, and short-lived deal!  The 2014 bundle will only be around until 11:59 PM on Monday, September 15th!  

At midnight it is gone. If 30,000 sell first, it will be gone BEFORE then. 

Get yours before it's gone Monday evening!

Here's what you get in a nutshell:

 $855 Value  + $ 175 Value  +   $ 200 Value    =
$ 1030 Total Value

for only $ 29.97 (PDF Version) or $ 39.97 (Kindle or Nook Version)

And if you purchase through these links, you'll be helping me out.
These are affiliate links.
Proceeds through all affiliate links will go to pay for this blog & further writing ventures.

Five reasons I love this bundle!

2. Quantity

4. Multi-product / Mixed Media

There is something for all of us in the mix.  eBooks, videos, audio courses w/ PDF guides, memberships & product credit for actual product. 

5. Value

Did I mention this is all valued at $1030 and sold for only $29.97 (for PDF versions) or $ 39.97 (for Kindle or Nook versions)!  That is a lot of value bundled together!

And I can't forget to point this out - one of my all time favorite sites is the Bulk Herb Store. They are my primary source for bulk herbs which I use for teas, tinctures, cooking and more. Her introductory videos, Making Herbs Simple, are BOTH available to download as part of the deal!  These videos alone sell for the cost of the entire thing.

This deal will be over in the blink of an eye!

To the mom who has wished for something different

A few months back, around Mother's Day, I wrote a series from the perspective of a broken mother's heart.

Those bitter tears came in seasons which brought various kinds of pain, the kinds a mama feels for loss, for change, for challenges. They have broken me.

I have often wished for something different.

Surrender Your Heart

That poem kept coming to mind. It spoke as if God knew how much I wanted someone to love me and stay with me. It spoke of that someone being prepared for me. It also spoke so much more - words that messed with me. My sister had it framed in her room. God was framing it in my heart.

I wanted someone to hold me, to cherish me, to take care of me. How could God do that? How could he comfort me now? I was a single mom with two boys with different bio-dads.

The Holy Spirit toothbrush {FMF: Reach}


What kind of learner are you? Visual, kinesthetic or auditory?

I am first a visual learner.  I see pictures in my mind of events, concepts and ideas. It is often from this place that I work through my thoughts.

Sometimes those pictures are muddy. Sometimes they are humorous. Sometimes they lead me to deeper faith. Often times, they only make sense to me.

Today's five-minute writing prompt is "reach".

I picture a toothbrush. The brand, as well as the concept of what a toothbrush does. It brushes teeth, but it must also reach. It must reach to the far back teeth, behind them and into the crevices.

The dentist once chided me for not reaching all the way to the back. I was offended at first. How dare they! I brush my teeth quite regularly. How could they not see? How could they not realize how hard I work at taking care of my teeth?

The best change {FMF: Change}

Every now and then a word comes along that opens up a well of emotions, thoughts and words.

Change. It is one of those words.

My heart begins to beat rapidly, again, for all the transition, the grief, the pain, the joys, the change.

Moving, serving, loving, losing. They affected deep change in parts of my soul and heart that had lain low for years.

Today I see change as something different.  I see all around me places and people where change is needed.

Circumstances. Some of this is good and oh so necessary. Some of it is limiting as well.

Hearts. Deeper, tougher places. Harder to effect.

Encouragement for when you feel you can't go on

Have you ever felt like you just couldn't go on anymore?

I have.

Over and over and over again...I thought I couldn't continue through any more trials. I wanted to give up on even hoping because I was tired of waiting, tired of praying, and tired of fighting the hard. I've been there again just this week. I know the fight of despair, desperation and lost determination.

But, that song which proclaims, "Christ in me, the hope of glory," it rings a truth I cannot shun.

When you are tried and run down, when life seems to keep knocking you over and when you think you can't get back up, you can.  Not on your own strength though. Not even on the strength of others.

Consider the Why of Christian Platform - {#makemuchofHim}

Sometimes I imagine conversations in my head. Do you ever do that? Surely, I'm not the only one. Right?

Recently, I have considered the discussion of - platform.

When it seems like everyone is shouting about the "what" and the "how", I am considering the "why".

The letter I am rewriting to myself

photo credit - 2happy
I look back. I see a young, wounded girl in need of healing. In need of grace.

That wounded girl? It's me.

Back then, when high school was coming to a close, I believed my body was sickening. That 86 pound goal? It hadn't been met.

Then, I was desperate for love. I longed for close friends & a boyfriend who would never leave me.

Then, I had failed myself and those around me who might care more - if only I'd done better.

That letter I wrote my senior year of high school? It found it's way to me five years later like my teacher said it would. As my shoulders slumped the tears came for the depth of agony and distorted views I told myself.

Today, I know it was my heart that was sick.

Today, the deep recesses where rawness throbbed are clothed with grace, steadfast love & truth.

Today, I have fallen.

Grace has caught me and held me close.

It's time for a new letter.

Sunday Snapshots - A Vlog, #BlogitForward & Acts 15 Team Encouragers

Snapshots are moments in time encapsulated in a post. This is where I share updates on what I'm up to and what God is doing.


If you haven't heard, there's a new Vlog in town. This journey began a couple of weeks ago as a response to Asheritah's #OTAVEDA challenge on

In stepping out to take on this challenge, I found that I enjoy talking to my phone and making videos. Eh- just chalk it up to another "endearing" quirk like those we shared for the Declare Conference 4X4...
