When tragedy strikes a small town how can we "move on" (to me even those two words are harsh)? Well, we have a choice to move on or continue to live. You can continue on in bitterness and strife or in forgiveness and anticipation of life more abundantly. Did you know you had a choice? When these things happen I am able to lean, rely and depend on the One who made me. Without my relationship with God, I'd be lost, stripped of hope. Young Lanza had no hope. God has already recorded how the world would be in the last days and every event is confirmation of it. I can lean on God's truth's and be encouraged to live as a servant, obedient to his commands, always praying for those who need prayer and cannot pray for themselves. Because of my relationship with God I know that Evil rules the world but God and his Love will reign supreme in the end. Because of my faith, I know that those who lost loved ones and know God will be okay as they allow God & the Holy Spirit to comfort them. Because of my faith, I know that I have so much work to do to lead others to Christ. Because of my faith I can forgive Young Lanza and his family for being unconscious to the possibilities of what had been brewing in his heart. Because of my faith, Young Lanza and his family I understand, needed to know the Love of God.
So, I forgive him, so that I can be forgiven! I ask that God help me to Love more and use me as a vessel to share His Love with those that need it most. Prayer is just talking to God, like he is your friend and according to His will he will answer. If you are in need of comfort and you have never been told before, I want you to know that God loves you more than anyone on Earth could ever love you. Life won't be perfect and we will go through some very rough times. But God knows, He sees and He is Love. Because He created Love, He does it best. Forgive evil doers, guard your heart and begin a relationship with God so that you can experience a comfort that no man on earth could ever provide.
To my Connecticut family. God is with you, allow his mercy, grace and never ending spiritual power to embrace you. Let fear go, be bold in knowing God is God.
Here is the Lesson: We all have something called "will" - it's our will to do or not to do. Believing in God is a choice, doing good is a choice as well as doing evil. We all have the right to choose at every moment of each day. If we do not believe in a power greater than ourselves that will hold us accountable when it has all been said and done we will be more apt to do unthinkable acts as if we are making a huge statement without any repercussions. Believe me Adam is getting his, if only someone had shared the Love of Christ with him. His soul will forever be tormented. If you do believe in God, not the sun or the universe, then you know you have a purpose to do GOD'S will and HIS will is not to do evil, but good!
Enough said, I pray that this has been a blessing to those that read it.
JESUS I GIVE MY LIFE TO YOU, CONTINUE TO USE IT!
Have a Blessed, Forgiving & Loving week!

COLD HARD DAIRY MYTHS DECONSTRUCTED:
1. MILK BUILDS STRONG BONES - DRINKING MILK FROM OTHER ANIMALS THROWS OFF YOUR BODIES ACID ALKALINE BALANCE, MILK IS ACIDIC AND IN ORDER TO REGAIN THE PROPER CALCIUM/PHOSPHORUS BALANCE CALCIUM IS LEACHED FROM YOUR BONES. THE COUNTRIES WHERE THE MOST DAIRY IS CONSUMED HAS THE HIGHEST RATE OF HIP FRACTURES.
2. VITAMINS AND MINERALS ARE NOT DESTROYED DURING PASTEURIZATION- NOT ONLY ARE VITAMINS AND MINERALS DESTROYED, THE BACTERIAS, VIRUSES AND TOXINS ARE NOT COMPLETELY DESTROYED EITHER.
3. DAIRY IS NEEDED FOR PROTEIN-A BABY COW NEEDS TONS OF PROTEIN TO GROW QUICKLY, WE GET 4 TIMES MORE PROTEIN FORM DAIRY PRODUCTS THAN IN HUMAN BREAST MILK. BREAST MILK HAS JUST WHAT THE HUMAN BODY NEEDS.
4. OTHER SPECIES DRINK MILK FROM OTHER SPECIES- FALSE, HUMANS ARE THE ONLY SPECIES TO DRINK MILK FORM ANOTHER SPECIES OTHER THAN OUR OWN MOTHERS.
NOW ON TO THE HEALTH TIP:
Personal note: I stopped eating dairy almost 9 years ago in every way, shape and form. No more gas, constipation or bloating. No more stuffy nose in the morning, no more mucus or spitting when brushing my teeth, no more colds and no more ear infections. Yippee for meee!
1. Know where to find & eliminate Dairy!!
2. Learn to make your own Healthy Substitutions!!!
Dairy is hidden in the Three States of Matter:
1. Solid-cheese, crackers, bread, butter, cereal, chips, noodles, spreads, batters, snack bars, puddings, all desserts, all prepared foods
2. Liquid-Milk, coffee drinks, smoothies, yogurts, baby formulas, tea
3. Gas- your gas, your family members, your animals, "geez-o-peeks", say excuse me somebody! Dairy must be eliminated!
Now, where do you get your milk and cheese from? Keep reading.....
Here are some healthy substitutions:
1. Make nut or seed based "mylks."
2. Nut allergy? Try guacamole for cheese or sour cream.
3. Try nut based "cheeze."
4. Make nut or seed based yogurts.
5. Make nut based sweet or savory creams, spreads or sauces.
One of the first things I help my clients to learn to do is substitute unhealthy options with healthy ones.

When I travel I always find Whole Foods and Raw Food restaurants in the area. My plan was to hop off the plane, get the rental and go to Cafe Gratitude and stuff my face. After only green drink, fruit and water on the plane for over 4 hours I was ready to eat.
One of my favorite raw food restaurants in the land! This was a Key Lime Pie with Ice cream and caramel sauce. I always enjoy being served raw food, especially raw desserts. I also ordered a Kale Salad and their Mediterranean Plate.
After leaving the restaurant, I headed straight for the Hollywood sign, no GPS needed. Low and behold, after driving through a beautiful neighborhood I ended up at Sunset Ranch in Griffith Park. There were mountains and hiking trails and of course the Hollywood sign. I could not believe it, I had made it! Sunset Ranch offered horseback riding and that was added to our schedule for the following day. We hiked up one mountain and that is where this picture was taken with the Hollywood sign. My travel buddy had never been horseback riding before but she never second guessed her involvement.

Nutritional Yeast is a powerhouse of nutrients and I believe is a great addition to a healthy lifestyle, especially for those who are vegan or vegetarian. It is one of the few non-animal sources of B-12, is rich in folic acid and many other nutrients and amino acids. This is not your typical yeast and is free of the Candida Albicans strain, making it safe for those concerned with candida.
Nutritional Yeast is very rich in B vitamins, including B12, which is what gives it that yellow color. One serving of nutritional yeast, about ½-1 Tbsp, provides the full amount of B12 needed for an adult in day, not bad. It is a great source of 18 amino acids, protein, folic acid, biotin and other vitamins. It is also rich in 15 minerals including iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, and chromium, and selenium.
It is grown on beet sugar and molasses, fermented and dried so it is gluten free and non-yeast forming in the body. Most companies dry it at a high heat so it is not a raw food. There might be a couple of companies who sell it raw but I am not aware of them. My understanding is that the yeast needs to be heated so that it is not live and active in the body, causing any yeast production in the GI tract. So for raw foodists it might be a cooked ingredient that is an exception.
I highly recommend it for babies/toddlers who are not nursing and using formula. The addition of nutritional yeast would be wise and very beneficial for your growing infant and toddler. If you are giving goat’s milk to your baby, toddlers and kids, nutritional yeast would be an important addition because goat milk is low in B12, iron and folic acid, while the yeast provides good amounts of those nutrients.
Nutritional Yeast over air popped popcorn is delicious as well. Another great way to feed it to your kids and family is to sprinkle it into a smoothie or over toast, into dishes such as soup, quinoa, stir fry, dressings, sauces, pates, etc. It adds a delicious cheesy and nutty taste and adds so much flavor and creaminess.
You can buy it in the bulk section at Whole Foods and various health food stores or try brands such as Red Star, Health Best, and now Bragg Brand as well.
