Obedience is Thicker Than Blood

Over the past several months, I would even say years, there’s been a strong emphasis placed on finding “your people”. Your tribe. The ones you were made to do life with. Discovering what part you were intended to play in the body of Christ, stewarding that part well, and connecting with the adjoining or complimentary parts so that you can be most effective in fulfilling your life’s purpose.

The Cost Of Pioneering

By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.” Hebrews 11:8 NKJV

Abraham. Pioneer and forefather of our faith. I’ve been studying his life and journey more closely and I’ve been learning so many new things. Reading over passages I’d read before, but seeing them through a different light and having my eyes opened to new truths. Continue reading

Wilderness Seasons

Hi friends,

It’s been a while since I’ve written, but I’m so glad to be back! Last week I hit day 40 of a journey I felt the Lord invite me on a few weeks ago.

Preparing to Juice Fast: Step 4

No matter how great our intentions are, the truth is, sometimes when we set out to start a fast…..we fail. Hard.

I remember a few years back, starting a fast and I was so excited, I just dove right in. But on day 3, I don’t know what came over me, but by 4pm, I’d had 2 cupcakes, a snickers bar and a cheeseburger. Ever had that happen to you? It’s okay. We’ve all done it. Don’t sweat it. Don’t beat yourself up. Just dust yourself off and get back up again. But here’s one of the things I’ve discovered. The times I have stumbled, it’s because I didn’t do this prior to starting my fast: Continue reading

Beet Grapefruit Orange Juice

This….is probably one of my most favorite juices of all time. Before my juicing days, I honestly hated beets. But once I discovered how to balance out their strong flavor with other fruits and veggies, they quickly became one of my favorites.

Beets are incredibly good for blood health and cleansing the liver. They also provide a noticeable boost in energy. Whenever I’m fasting, and I start feeling that 2:00pm slump (at which point I’d typically reach for a cup of coffee), I reach for one of these juices instead and it perks me right back up. Give it a try! Continue reading

Preparing to Juice Fast: Step 2

Could you use a post-holiday reboot to kick off your New Year? I sure could! A juice fast may be just the thing you need.

I’ve written several posts on juicing and fasting and I’ve done it enough times to where I know what to expect. However, I thought I’d share a quick series on some steps that I still go through to help me prepare my mind, my kitchen and my body.
