Healthy Family, Healthy Meals

Ever since my diagnosis of MS in January 2008, our family has been on a journey toward healthier living.  That journey got a jumpstart last week when I watched a movie called Food Inc.  I have since shown it to my hubby and the boys and they are on board with revamping the food weContinue Reading

Sleep is a beautiful thing

For the last three weeks I have been planning an event (God gave me the idea, never mentioned the scope) that benefitted an organization very important to me- Young Lives.  Last night we held the event at our local mall, in conjunction with the National Mom’s Nite Out.  The culmination of hard work, excitement andContinue Reading

Steps toward a natural lifestyle

Image via Wikipedia I haven’t liked getting my hands dirty since I was a little girl.  Gardening? Yuck!  I even mix meatloaf with a spoon.  Up until recently, I didn’t like to get anything under my french manicured nails (did you know all the chemicals in acrylic nails?  I do now and haven’t had themContinue Reading

Do you believe in miracles?

So, many of you may have read my post here about my horrific bout with hives.  Those same hives (combined with passing out, hitting my head and my MS) landed me in the hospital Wednesday and Thursday. I’m not a big fan of hospitals and it did not escape me (or my poor worried hubby)Continue Reading

You need to have been there…

I was hesitant to write this post because it is about a very polarizing issue.  My opinion (and I acknowledge that is all it is) differs greatly from most of my friends and my readers.  However, my personal experience (which is what I am going to share) is relevant to the issue.  What is theContinue Reading
