Aging Is A Gift, Not A Curse

As those of us who are knowledgable in God’s Word know; the things in and of this world are backwards and twisted. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind ~ Romans 12:2 We are trained practically from birth to detest aging (except for that brief period when kids long to be of a particular age to gain the ‘freedom’ as they see it, to do as they please). Birthdays are met with disdain, jokes and a drive to act, look and prove one is still of value. However, we are aren’t we; valuable, vibrant, WORTHY… In the eyes of our Lord, we are all those things. He teaches us our worth, our beauty, our success all stem from who we are in Him, not who we’re

Top Food Allergens

“I’ve just found out I’m allergic to nut-cases” ~Benny Bellamacina THE BIG 8: Refers to the top eight major allergenic foods. These consist of Milk, Eggs, Crustacean Fish, Fish, Tree Nuts, Wheat, and Soybean. Unfortunately, many of these foods can be hidden in processed or even natural foods which is why it’s imperative to learn to read food labels and learn the alternate names of these allergens. Milk: Reactions may stem from gastrointestinal upset (bloating, diarrhea), skin eruptions, sinus, and asthma, wheezing.Milk from other animals (goat, sheep) still contain the allergen causing proteins and one may continue to experience a reaction. Eggs: Digestive upset, skin reactions, and respir

Life with Asthma, Just Breathe…

[Marisol's always prepared for those critical asthma moments.] I’m a firm believer that we are often handed life experiences, conditions and even tragedies so that we can pay it forward, pass on and share our knowledge and wisdom and mistakes in order to create what I like to call a ‘giving train’. “Life cannot subsist in society but by reciprocal concessions” ~ Samuel Johnson As a child I developed Asthma in my early teens and it was pretty serious. Medically, there weren’t the variety of inhalers and meds to combat this disease like there are now. Over the years i moved in and out of well controlled and out of controlled asthma. As I grew older I was blessed with a long reprieve from thi

Egg Story | The Story of Determination and the Will to Survive

Egg Story is one for all ages. It surely tickles the funny bone but has meaning woven into it as well. A small group of eggs break away from their refrigerated prison and seek out to live life differently than what’s deemed for most eggs! (as delicious meals!! ) This story tells of reaching for one’s dreams, fighting adversaries and the will to survive. I believe anyone of us can find value in this short little story. This is a good book to just leave on a table somewhere when you’re done to pass on to others. "Life comes from physical survival; but the good life comes from what we care about "~ Rollo May - - - - - - - - - - - - Connect with Living Thru Grace on social media and continue

What’s Better Than Green Smoothies?…Not Much! Part 1

Green Smoothie Basics ~ A Simple Backstory [ Kodiak & Melody are ready for Vitamix(ing) delicious smoothies in 2017!] Greenies! as I call them, Green Smoothies have been the saving grace for the rejuvenation and maintenance of my health!! There is simply no better way to easily and ‘smoothly’ get in loads of Greens, Veggies and Fruits without gorging on them daily. I love the freedom of creativity of making Greenies (although they aren’t all necessarily green! ) Green Smoothies are created in a blender, I use this high powered one Vitamix. Blenders such as VitaMix, Blend Tec, Magic Bullet, or Ninja Blenders are all great choices and high powered enough to completely grind those hard to

Do This, Not That!… Listen to God’s Wisdom, Not That of this World!

I used to think that it all was so confusing, daunting, like a corn maze… Life. We have our culture, we have society, family, friends and an open media of every kind, all attempting to lead us onto a purposed path of right living. I looked at many of these sources and was still left spinning and unsettled in my existence... I forgot and I kept ignoring the one source that’s Omniscient! “Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge God! How unsearchable his judgements, and his paths beyond tracing out!” Romans 11:33 I was leaning on man, not God for my milk, my sustenance, for my walk in this life, a walk that’s NOT to be done without Him! I was at the ultimate amusement park o

Why Are Raw Foods So Important??

What are Raw Foods? Raw living foods are foods that haven't been cooked; fruits,vegetables, seeds, nuts, and sprouted grains. (more on that later).

Foods that grow naturally provide us with easy digestible nourishment. Raw foods provides the body with an Alkaline and -PH balanced environment. You see, foods are either Acid forming or Alkaline forming. Disease can’t grow in an alkaline environment, but an acidic environment breeds disease. What Are Enzymes? Fruits and Vegetables and Green Leafy Vegetables a

Healing the Body with Nutraceuticals

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”.~ Hippocrates It’s no secret that the pharmaceutical business brings in about one half trillion dollars a year. (no one is spending millions of dollars on the healing and benefits of food and nutrients in advertising they way we see ads and commercials for drugs!) Being sick is really good for business for them! However, how is popping pills been for you? Have you been healed, has your health improved, how’s buying all those meds been for your budget?? If the answer to those questions were negative, you may want to begin adopting a new paradigm for your health and wellness. If you want to assist the body in healing, and repairing instea
