Mother’s Bible

Mother's BibleI love a well-worn Bible. This one was my mother’s, given to her and my dad by her mother, my grandmother. We are so blessed in this country to have a Bible and the freedom to read and study it!

Yet so many people have Bibles that are literally gathering dust on their coffee table or book shelf.  I have the urge to write “Read Me!” in the dust when I see that.

The Bible is God’s holy Word. It’s not only a love story from God to man, but a revelation of his perfect plan and a practical guide for everyday concerns. Approach it with reverence and be in the Word daily.

How many Bibles are in your home? Have you read one of them? What if God were to one day say to you, “Was the  eighty years I gave you not long enough for you to read my book?”

I’m still learning Pinterest, but already have more than a dozen boards with pins related to lots of interesting topics. What fun and so convenient for collecting ideas on topics dear to me such as nutrition quotes, healthy eating, words of hope, Easter ideas, words of inspiration, gluten free, gardening, and nutritional supplements.

To go exploring some of my favorite things, quotes that inspire me, or recipes I already love making or plan to try some day, just click on one of the boards and have a look around. I’m sure to keep pinning as I discover more items of interest in the pinterest world and also pin many of my own. Feel free to follow a board or repin any pin that you like. I’d love to hear from you. Enjoy!

Sleep Like a Baby

Sleep- Do you sleep like a baby? The sleep of an innocent baby is blissful and serene. While we may be physically exhausted, mentally fatigued, and emotionally drained because of our diet, level of health, lifestyle, and relationships, the bodies of little babies are not toxic, their minds are not stressed out, and they are not on an emotional roller coaster. We could all take a lesson from the innocent babe. To sleep, to sleep, perchance to dream. . . For information on restful sleep, see my book “Morning By Morning Pathway to Health” available on, Barnes &,, my website  and other booksellers.

When Your Body Gives You a Wake-up Call

Wakeup Call

Our bodies have a way of getting our attention.  Sometimes your body produces symptoms that suggest an action is needed to maintain health.  Other times, often when you have ignored or suppressed the initial symptoms that all is not well (sort of like hitting the snooze button on your alarm clock), a chronic disease will suddenly require that you drop everything else and deal with it as your top priority.  That is what I refer to as a “Wake-up Call” from your body.  It means that time is of the essence and you must begin to address the deficiencies in your nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, and other components of health immediately to reverse the course of a disease or degenerative state.  You cannot ignore the nutritional needs of your body for long with impunity.

Subtle changes taking place within your body each day have cumulative effects that impact aging, health, or degenerative disease.  Acute conditions may become chronic and begin to manifest as altered Continue reading
