For anyone who suffers from or knows someone who suffers from Auto-immune illness, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, listen up!
It's a BIG deal.
What most people don't realize when they are diagnosed with an illness connected to leaky gut is that IF THE HOLES IN THE GUT ARE NOT SEALED UP, even when nutrition changes, THE GUT WILL CONTINUE TO LEAK and the longer the body is in an inflammation state, we set ourselves up for more auto-immune disorders to ensue. Be an advocate for yourself!
Don't just take a pharmaceutical 💊 and be on your way. The prescription is a band-aid and its not going to stop the gut from leaking! #leakygut#candida#autoimmunedisease#allergies#fibromyalgia#guthealth#bacteria#probiotics#thereishope
The most upsetting part of our current home situation is not that we're in the ever-stretching quest for a home. It's not that I'm living with friends right now—they are the sweetest people, and I already feel my body's improvements from being in a smoke-free home. I'm not even the most upset about my poor liver. I'm confident that continued treatments and a clean home will rid me of this totally preventable, inexcusable poison.

What I am most upset about is being forced apart from Daniel. We were long-distance for much of the nearly two years we dated. And all we wanted was to finally be together, to deal with life under the same roof. Two years into our marriage, when smokers had driven us out of our first apartment and into my parent's house for a year, we had to live apart for about a month. He got a job in NC that started before our current apartment was ready, so he stayed with relatives in the vicinity while I stayed behind in WV. But that wait had a clear goal and a clear deadline, with a great reason. This has none of those. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now here we are, about four years later, living separately, for who knows how long. And that is what kills me, deeply.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Back when life was normal just a few weeks ago, it was not uncommon for me to complain about not getting to be with him enough with how busy life is. Now I don't even have the comfort of knowing he's asleep in the other room while I work on my businesses late at night. I was unable to take care of our home like I wished for five years; now that I'm finally, newly able, I can't be there to do it. He's on his own, and I don't really have a home, all because of one person's disgusting choice.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
When God brings two people together in marriage, I always assumed it's understood that, barring deployments and work trips, they get to BE together. So I do not remotely understand why we must be separated, much less by selfishness and smoke. Maybe someday I will. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
But this hurts me more than I would have expected, more than I wish it did, and more than I can put into words.
❌ The most subtle things are usually the most dangerous. They happen right beside us even if we don't see it with our own eyes. They hid in plain sight and we/myself are too busy to notice. I bet this is how human trafficking happens. Pervasive and deadly. I hope to shine a light on the darkness that happens right before our eyes and to stop and look around. ❌ #enditmovement#light#thereishope
Tonight was fun, & touching with this beautiful group of awesome individuals.
We all walked the streets of Indianapolis tonight praying & handing out survival kits, & spending some time for our homeless here in the downtown market. One thing I can definitely take away from tonight is that " someone out there in the world has a much worse situation than you do, so be grateful for all God has blessed you with "

Once upon a time I was tan, and warm, and in the sun, and on the beach, and happy and now I am cold, and pale, and cold, and nostalgic, and not on the beach and cold... #Summeriscoming ☀️😝🙌🏼 #tb#thereishope
There will be days, seasons and dare I say, that there will even be years that the fruits of your labor appear to be in vain and altogether worthless. As though, nothing you do matters. As if, you've been abandoned and are left to rot in solitude. When the storms of life are too cumbersome and you are all but broken. The trials of life, it's burdens and weights are difficult. Be of good hope for a better day awaits. As someone whose words have consoled me in the dark nights of the soul once said, don't doubt in the darkness what God has promised in the light. Believer, we were made for this. Refinement turns coal into diamonds and it draws you to Him. In the cloudiness of our lives, we often forget that the radiance of His light shines ever so brightly and in this, we have our hope. The One who conquered sin and death is with you and in His strength, He will restore you. It is in these dark moments of our lives that we must take refuge under shadow of His almighty hand. That through it all, "yet I will exult in the LORD." He is faithful to make you persevere to the end for He has promised to keep you. In times of trials, may we take hope as the words of the old hymnals point out:
God is still on the throne,
and He will remember His own;
though trials may press us
and burdens distress us,
He will never leave us alone.
God is still on throne,
and He will remember His own;
His promise is true,
He will not forget you.
God is still on the throne.
Good evening. I was disgusted when I found my daughter listening to a band titled 'Next Year's End'. They are evil, and I will explain why. I made this account to help parents to keep their children away from this satanic band.

#thankfulthursday I am so thankful for the kind gestures I have received from friends and strangers alike lately. I know that no matter our struggles there is always hope and I am lucky enough to witness it everyday. I came home to a care package from @pescience last week and it completely lifted my spirits. You never know what someone is going through but letting someone know that you are thinking about them can completely change their day, their week or even their life. #sharethelove 💕
As Plexus Ambassador, Holistic Health Coach & Author, Kim Wilson Pollock says... 'It is my opinion that your health DEPENDS on these 3 things. If your blood sugar is stable, your ENERGY will soar, your HORMONES will stabilize, your MOOD will IMPROVE and your SLEEP will become restful.
If your gut is healthy, your immune system will be strong, you will likely no longer feel ANXIOUS or sad, your BRAIN FOG will disappear and your SKIN will glow. If you reduce INFLAMMATION in the body, your pain will go away, your joint discomfort will lessen, your body WON'T be stressed and you will prevent illness." Friends, I've experienced all of this, and more. THAT's why I keep sharing Plexus with everyone!! The 'Plexus TriPlex' can help with blood sugar, gut health, and inflammation.❤ It's my favorite combo hands down!

Getting ready to go completely out of my comfort zone and hop on a conference call with two scientists from a DNA lab about tissue sample testing for the product I created and sell for the auto immune skin condition that I have. It’s scary and exciting all at the same time!
The older I get the more I learn that anything worth working for, having, or doing doesn’t come easy. It takes passion, dedication, failing, and risk taking to get there. If you don't take risks, and go out of your comfort zone, nothing will ever move forward or change.
I’ve never really been one to have big dreams, or goals. But life has defining moments. This condition and the research I have done has lit a fire and passion in me to be able to help as many others with the condition as I can.
Today I start setting plans in to motion, and dreaming big, in order to give others hope.
In it to End it. Today we join the #enditmovent to raise our voices and raise awareness about the evil of human trafficking. But what #action are you taking to combat modern day slavery? We are each called to be a part of this fight- what does that look like for YOU? With your specific gifts, talents, and treasure, and within your sphere of influence how are YOU taking action? Its easy to put an ❌ on our hands one day a year; its hard to sacrifice and give so that the lost might be found. If you aren’t and don’t know how or where to get started please ask me!!! I would love to tell you how YOU can be part of the change. It is my whole life’s passion and purpose to fight for freedom for those captive. #freedomfighter#voiceforthevoiceless#worthfightingfor#thereishope#bepartofthechange#takeaction#raiseawareness#endhumantrafficking
Amazing is all I can say. Notes like this from my customers is what makes me want to keep plugging away and trying to reach more people that have the same horrible Auto Immune condition that I have. This woman has lived with this condition for over 40 years and until she found the product I developed and make, nothing worked. Juanita, thank you for your kind comments. I am grateful for the people in my life that pushed me to begin this venture, and that have supported it along the way. Pushing forward in 2018 to find more ways to try to reach more people suffering from LS! #lichensclerosus#lifeworksskinessentials#restorenaturaloilblend#thereishope#passionforpeople#passionforhealth#ls
