If you have hung out with me here for any amount of time you know I am a huge advocate of all types of fasts: Spiritual, Nutritional, Absolute, Intermitent….etc.
For me it does not matter what type of fast I go into it is always taken into prayer…..and sometimes it is actually given to me through prayer and then me re-taking it into prayer so I can hear clearly what I am supposed to be doing.
But one of the biggies I usually do with a fast is I usually do not share with many people; usually only 1 or 2 are brought into it. And that is because it was spoken into me shortly after my huge transformation with fasting in the beginning. God pressed it into my heart that all fasts forward were to remain private unless told otherwise.
Well here I am years later Him telling me loud and clear…..this one is too big for you….you need to be united with others….lots of others.
Because there is a HUGE DISCONNECT with who we are as people and in our healing.
There are sooo many hurting people turning to sooo many different types of addictions (drugs, alcohol, pornography, food, shopping, apathy, body…etc). And why? To avoid the work of healing. And why? Because healing is hard work!
Healing means you have to be willing to go THROUGH the pain….not around it.
Healing means you have to open your eyes to and bring to the front what you have been avoiding.
So on September 2-October 12, I will be entering into a fast that is intentional in praying for people who are struggling with addictions.
I think we probably ALL know someone who is burdened by addiction. Who has been enslaved by the lies of its soothing denial of the truth.
I can’t do this alone.
So regardless if you enter into a fast or just add extra prayers during those 40 days….are you open to add the intentional prayers for those struggling with addictions?
When we CONNECT our prayers and spirits together we truly CAN move mountains!
Have an amazingly blessed day and labor day weekend!
My hugs and prayers are always with each and every one of you!

Hugs and blessings always,
I remember the first time I ever experienced an AromaTouch technique…I was becoming certified to do the work on others.
It was an amazing feeling. And I realized I needed to experience this more often. It was a way I could easily incorporate self care and love of self.
So I’m excited that this May’s Wellness Workshop is all about this amazing detox system I provide!
I will be covering what it’s all about….the 8 oils that are used and why…..
The AromaTouch Technique is an amazing experience to connect with our health.
It allows us to address and strengthen our physical and emotional health.
During May’s workshop we are going to dive deep into it how we can nurture our self care, detox, and support our whole health with the AromaTouch technique.
With Mother’s Day in May let’s honor our femininity, our self care needs, and see how we can start incorporating things like an AromaTouch technique on a consistent basis.
This months class will also have some simple “sample” options to experience.
There will also be purchase options available to take home that day.
Have you ever thought about how self care can help you with detoxing this spring?!
Save your seat 👇👇👇….
Don’t forget to take a moment on this amazing Monday to sit, pray, reflect, Journal, tap…..and oil up!
Prayers and hugs always,
Words cannot describe the pain…the sorrow….the utmost intense emotions I felt last night…
Yet the excitement….the joy…..the peace and healing….
Actually there is another time I felt the same exhaustion from a movie…..the Passion by Mel Gibson.
Last night my family and I attended a “red carpet” event of Unplanned. Our parish church organized a viewing of the movie before it was to be released today.
Actually it was a woman from our church, who organized this event, who is truly passionate about serving others and bringing about light to the world.
This was not an easy movie to watch, for many reasons.
One…I know Abby Johnson! I’m not close intimate friends with her….but one of my dear friends is! She attends our parish, she is on the parish counsel with my husband, and I have had the blessing to visit with her on a few occasions at different gathers.
She IS a warrior woman!
She is a beautiful example of what I share here all the time….and at workshops……and presentations……which is:
TELL YOUR STORY!
Get it out of you….don’t allow it to hold you in shame…..in bondage!
None of us have a pretty bow wrapped story. They are all varying shades of messy. But when we hide them deep within us we are allowing the enemy to separate us from our most amazing, loving FATHER!
Abby Johnson was brave and bold to share her story to THE WORLD! And that alone will continue to be her true healing path.
Being open and honest about your story is a powerful instrument….tool…..of healing.
It is a way to forgiveness……GOD ALREADY FORGIVES US AND LOVES US…..but sometimes we stay in bondage of pain and shame and hurt…..because we haven’t forgiven others…..or most likely we haven’t FORGIVEN OURSELVES.
That un-forgiveness can lead us to so much pain but most of all it can and will effect our health…..first our emotional health…..then our mental…..and finally our physical!
Because the body is an amazing creation! Our body knows it’s connected to our mind, our heart, our spirit, our emotions. It doesn’t try to separate all that we are made up of, as so many doctors or even us, try to do too often.
For me this movie was moving beyond words…..and also very healing. Knowing that the anniversary of the loss of my sweet precious Sam is this weekend, and the D&C that took place on the 1st…..well let’s just say lent is already a difficult time for me most years…..yet also healing and renewing…..but this movie definitely had me doing some ugly crying!
It had me reflect on my own path of life…..my own wounds……my own pain and choices.
I have always been a huge pro-lifer……but I use to not always be as loving and compassionate in how I approached the subject.
And after one of my rapes….even being a pro-lifer…..there was a brief moment of panic when I thought…..”what if I get pregnant?”…..
And finally my saddest thought that took me quite a bit to heal from was when I did loose my precious baby several years back……the shame I had of relief!
My husband and I had struggled for so many years to conceive our daughter and had fought super hard to try to have another. We had finally given into the peace of: it was not meant to be.
Yet when our daughter was nearly 8 we discover we are pregnant, I was less than thrilled. All of a sudden I was having to figure out how I was going to adjust to all the changes it was going to bring. We had BIG plans that year….we had a routine. WE WERE COMFORTABLE.
I should’ve been thrilled but I wasn’t. I had just gotten my health back on track and here this precious baby growing inside of me was going to create havoc with all that. I was selfish in my thoughts. That’s not too harsh….it’s the truth.
My dearest of friends consoled me and comforted me. She was with me through the whole journey. She would ask me the nitty gritty questions….the hard questions. And would remind me deep down what I really felt. Which was that I REALLY DID WANT THIS BABY BUT I WAS AFRAID TO WANT IT! Because what if…..!?
And then WHAT IF DID HAPPEN……and I felt the immense amount of guilt and shame. I blamed myself for waaay too long. But luckily by that point in my journey I had my safe people that I could be vulnerable and honest with….like this friend…..and know I wouldn’t be judged for having human thoughts and feelings.
Many people will go to this movie because they support the cause…the message….the truth.
Many will NOT go to it because they don’t want to hear it.
Some will even waiver because it was given the rating of R…..which is hogwash….our daughters under 18 can go to have a legal abortion but not old enough to go to this movie!?
But I think EVERYONE SHOULD GO FOR THE REDEMPTION MESSAGE they will receive from it.
This movie is about so much more than exposing PLANNED PARENTHOOD……its truly about LOVE, FORGIVENESS, JOY, PEACE…..HEALING!
Have you had an ugly kind of cry recently? I honestly think everyone should about 2-3 times a year….it’s cleansing for the soul….cleansing for the emotions…..and yes cleansing for the body!
Go to this movie….have an ugly cry…..sit with it…..pray about it…..tap and oil up……and see how it moves your emotions, mind, heart, soul, energy in a different direction!
Many blessings and hugs always dear ones,

This quote from St. Francis reminds me that there IS greatness to discover with all of this with great patience.

Today Catholics all over the world started their new year celebrating the Solemnity of Mary!
It had me reflecting on how sooo many of us create New Years resolutions…..and these can be good….but they sometimes don’t serve us well!
They don’t serve our higher purpose…the purpose of being Christ to the world….to shine….to love!
To do this it’s two fold:
1. Love yourself fully in order to love others like Christ did!
2. Look to Mary….how she bound her will in order to live fully and completely in Gods will!
What are your 2019 resolutions?
Are they resolutions that will draw you closer to Christ?
Will your desire to lose weight serve the greater good for Him? Meaning by bringing down inflammation, healthy heart, move easier…..will those grant you the ability to be able to do service, live longer, and love others more fully?!
Or will they be about getting into the cute dress? (Now don’t get me wrong I like looking cute in my black dress too 🥰….but it shouldn’t be my primary reason!)
When we focus on our health to care for ourselves and serve Him….then the byproduct of looking and feeling great in our clothes are more rewarding and peaceful….not fearful!
Sit tonight with this….pray about it….journal….tap…and oil up!
Blessings and hugs always!

One of the many gifts has been doTERRAs precious oils….
These oils support me in so many ways….physically….mentally….emotionally!!!
And we all know relationships can be very emotional 😭🤗😇😘!!!!
Today I’m going to use Beautiful oil even more than usual….because it will stir with in me and remind me how beautiful my husband finds me!!!
He tells me all the time….🥰…..
I know this to be a truth….just like each of you are sooo amazingly beautiful….but because of the mental disconnect with dysmorphia…..I don’t always believe it!
Beautiful oil doesn’t let me forget it…it transforms the lies into truth!!!!
What lies do you allow the enemy to whisper in your ear?!
How can you combat his lies with the truth?!
Sit with this…..pray about it…journal….tap….and oil up!!!
