Why Organic Food is So Expensive

Why Organic Food is So Expensive

My mom fed us organic foods since the time I was five years old. I mostly eat organic foods and fed it to my children when they were growing up. Yes, it’s more expensive but I don’t want all of the toxic chemicals sprayed on foods that are conventionally grown. I have been reading a book called “The Dirty Life: A Memoir of Farming, Food, and Love” by Kristin Kimball. Someone recommended it on one of the blogs I follow….

Update on My Brain Tumor

Update on My Brain Tumor

As many of you know, I have a brain tumor in the center of my head that doctors are unable to remove. Five years ago, I had a second brain surgery to remove it, only this time the neurosurgeon could only remove a little bit because the substance had changed to more stickiness and with the optic nerve and carotid arteries so close, there wasn’t much he could get out and still allow me to have some semblance of life….

Healing Ulcerative Colitis Completely

Healing Ulcerative Colitis Completely

When I was five years old, my mom got Ulcerative Colitis and would spend weeks in bed. Ulcerative Colitis is when the colon (the large intestine) is badly damaged and bleeds. Doctors told my mom that there was no cure and told her to eat only white things (white bread, white rice, and white potatoes). They also gave her some drugs. She tried this for a while but only got sicker. She began to read every book she could find…

The Power of Fevers For Good

The Power of Fevers For Good

Many people today literally live in fear of having a fever. My mom raised us to not fear them at all but understood that it was the body’s way to rid itself of viruses and disease. I raised my children the same way. I would give them a lot of warm water with fresh lemon juice and organic, raw honey just like my grandmother did with her seven children. (Nowadays, I have also added elderberry syrup for any colds or…

Working Hard in My Kitchen

Working Hard in My Kitchen

As keepers at home, one of our main ministries to our family and others is learning to cook. During the 60s and the feminist movement when women left their homes to go out and pursue careers, fast food restaurants and packaged foods became popular; anything to make the working mothers’ lives easier. Now, we have several generations of women who don’t cook at all or don’t like to cook and our nation’s health is suffering as a result. It’s important…

Dangers of Nail Polish and Nail Polish Remover

Dangers of Nail Polish and Nail Polish Remover

My mom was raised during and right after the Great Depression. Foods weren’t sprayed with toxic chemicals back then and the meat and dairy were from animals that ate what God created them to eat and lived how God created them to live (not crammed into small places). She grew up with four sisters and two brothers and my mom was the one who was most health conscious. She mostly ate organic food and was basically healthy all of her…

Cancer Rising Among Children

Cancer Rising Among Children

Did you know that cancer is the number two killer among children ages five to fourteen years old according to the CDC? Just recently, I heard of a mother who was pregnant with her third baby and they saw a mass in the baby’s abdomen so they took the baby when the mother was only eight months along. The mass was a cancerous tumor that had spread throughout the baby’s body. The baby died shortly afterwards. I grieve for this…

Living a Long and Healthy Life

Living a Long and Healthy Life

Shirali Mislimov of Azerbaidzhan, U.S.S.R allegedly lived to be 168 years old and died in 1973. In researching his life, I found some interesting things. Now, I’m not interested in living that long but I do try to live as healthy as I can while I live. Yes, there are some things that have happened to me beyond what I could prevent like head and neck trauma that most likely caused my brain tumor and needing a neck fusion. But we…

A large part of your ministry to your family should be fixing them nourishing food for their bodies to keep them healthy and free from illness. Please, don’t say you can’t cook or don’t know how.

Many of you know of my health struggles the past 28 years. I have written about them on my blog, even having to go through brain surgery for the second time and Cyber Knife a few years ago which was traumatizing. I have detailed all of this in my book but I thought it was time for an update for all of you who would like to know. We go to Door County, WI most summers but I have had…
