Health and Wellness

My journey toward health and wellness started when I traveled to Israel with a group of people from my church.  While I was there I noticed that I felt so full of life.  I was eating kosher, healthy foods such boiled eggs, fruit, vegetables, hummus, and whole wheat pitas.  I felt so good.  I had struggled my whole life with intermittent bouts of migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, and hypoglycemia.  I had learned how to control the symptoms of these minor health issues by watching my diet.  Usually on trips these symptoms became out of control because I wouldn’t have a lot of control over what I ate, but this trip was different.  I was eating well and feeling wonderful.  I paid a great deal of attention to that.  It was also on this trip that our tour leader began to explain why he does not eat pork or shellfish and I was intrigued.  I didn’t understand why a Christian who is not bound to the Old Testament dietary laws would feel the need to follow them.  So when I returned home from that trip I began to do some digging in the scriptures, doing some internet research, and reading several books on this topic.  One day as I was thinking and praying about this, I felt the Lord reminded me of the book ” The Makers Diet”.  I had heard about this book but had never read it.  I didn’t know anything about it.  So I got the book and began to read.  The more I read, the more the words of the author resonated with my spirit.

Since putting the principals of the Maker’s Diet into practice in my life I have witnessed firsthand the benefits of caring for the health of my body.  I no longer struggle with migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, or hypoglycemia. I feel better at 40 than I did at 30.  Now I am determined to educate and change the face of the health of God’s people one person at a time. “Therefore I urge you brothers and sisters in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship.  Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” – Romans 12:1

One thought on “Health and Wellness

  1. God does want us to live healthy and willing and ABLE to serve him. I eat clean as a fasting lifestyle to the Lord. When I am committed to my healthy lifestyle I believe I am stronger and more able to serve the Lord. I feel better and have more energy for Him and my family. Thank you for your voice and heart in bringing this subject to the women of God. I’m so excited to have you as my pastor.
