who's in?

i wanna run away...

i know.... i'm complaining...but i'm tired of being lied to by friends and coworkers, i'm tired of working a job i hate, i'm sad because i don't know what GOD wants me to do with my life let alone what i wanna do in it...i just feel lost and broken...and i wanna run away.

birthday blues

I'm turning 30 in 6 days. 30!

I want to cry. That's sad I know.

Age doesn't matter…but ya know when you place those dang nabit goals in your life and they don't get met? really brings ya down. I hate goals…maybe my 30 year old resolution will be to never set any more goals…hmmm…I wonder if that would work?

30! I'm getting old...

so you wanna be a road biker?

Who would have thought that I would enjoy road biking? Certainly not me. So my legs ache a bit and my knees want to give out every time I stand, my shoulders and biceps hurt, don’t ask me why, and my unmentionablez hurt in areas I never thought could hurt…but, I still had fun. If you don’t know…Steve somehow talked me into a tour called the MS 150. In the winter, I thought no problem, we'll jump on the saddle and bike every weekend and this won't be a problem. OK…so we went to maybe 5 spinning classed this winter and I went on 2 rides this spring…needless to say, I am completely out of shape. But still with every try to escape this tour, Steve encouraged me to go. I thought that maybe I'd strive for 40 miles a day, but I made it 44 the first day and 61 the second and I find myself asking…when do we get to go again. Am I crazy? It was hot and muggy and I can't express to you how many dead animals I not only saw but smelled, I almost fell off my bike twice, which…

ONE billion people live on less than ONE dollar a day. ONE by ONE, we can help them help themselves.

By directing an additional ONE percent of the U.S. budget toward providing the most basic needs – and fighting the corruption that wastes precious resources –– we can help transform the futures and hopes of an entire generation in the poorest countries.

With an additional ONE percent of our budget:

•We can help prevent 10 million children from becoming AIDS orphans
•We can help get 104 million children into grade school.
•We can help provide water to almost 900 million people around the globe.
•We can save almost 6.5 million children under 5 from dying of diseases that could be prevented with low-cost measures like vaccination or a well for clean water.
•We can build a better, safer world for all.

ONE percent of the U.S. budget is $25 billion, and redirecting that much money would have to be done over time. Directed to honest governments, private charities and faith-based organizations, this support would provide the tools and resources they need to really make a difference. American support…

Jay Bakker

I can still remember all the jokes made of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker in the late 80's? And of course, even as a young teenager, I remember judging the family. I knew nothing of the Bakkers, really. Other than what I picked up from elders around me or on TV. But this last few weeks, I've had a huge wake up call. A few years ago I started following Jay Bakkers ministry in Atlanta, Revolution. I've never been to Revolution but when I heard of them through a friend I had to check out the website.
I was immediately taken by the rawness of the ministry. Religion Kills is a major theme and seeing how corrupt religion can be, this belief truly took root in my life. A few weeks ago I picked up the book 'Son of a Preacher Man', Jay's autobiography. What an amazing read. I recommend everyone pick it up. I'm not going to talk much about it because I want you to read it. But what I learned though reading it, is how much I have not only judged in t…
What's in your milk?

Is our food killing us?

So, I must admit. I'm on a journey, a journey for optimal health. I'm searching for answers that will keep me healthy and although it's hard to change and at times, hard to let go of that comfort food, I feel it's a must. In my journey I've read 2 books; Patient Heal Thyself and The Makers Diet. Amazing books that I highly recommend. Although I'm very disappointed that the nutritional supplements, which are talked of so highly in the books are so astronomically pricey. BUT…nonetheless, the information is life changing. And I've found a cheap site… A great site to find cheap organic essentials like burts bees and other goodies!

I've been realizing all the junk I put into my body…all the chemicals, hormones, and more silent health destructors like sugar…It's really sad. The US seems to be filled with the unhealthiest, chunkiest and disease ridden people…so many are overweight, have diabetes, cancer, stomach problems, colon problems, thy…
