Well, as you may have noticed, I have not been quite as consistent with my blogging.  I have been quite busy lately...with an important priority.  You see I have entered into a courtship with an amazing Godly young man.  I will probably share some on the blog...but I will most likely not be as consistent as I have been in the past.  We would appreciate your prayers during this exciting time in our lives.

Quick update

I have had a very good week...amazing in many ways beyond what I can describe.  So I will just leave it there and keep praising Yahweh. 

I was also interviewed Friday on The Good Report Radio show about Purify 2014 and Purify West Coast - Retreats for Hebrew Roots Singles.  We also talked about some of the challenges facing the
Millennial Generation which was a very fascinating conversation.  No archived version available yet, but as soon as I get a copy, I will share it.

Walking by Faith...

2 Corinthians 12:9a "My grace is enough for you, for my power is brought to perfection in weakness." has been the key verse of my week. 
On a positive note, please check out this amazing interview with Alex Danya and Nicole Patten about their video and photography work (they were our AV Team at Purify!) at!

I'm a Doctor!!!

Right before Shabbat, I got the news that I graduated as a Doctor of Traditional Naturopathy!!!  Talk about an exciting way to start your Shabbat!  I have already gotten my certified nutritional counselor and certified chaplain in holistic approaches degrees, so I am really excited to begin using my education to help people acheive health from a natural and Biblical approach.

Speaking of Shabbat, we had a great gathering with around 70 people in attendance to hear Dr. Chuck Thurston speak on our bodies and the picture they show of the plan of salvation as well as the picture the tabernacle shows of the body of Messiah.  Very fascinating presentations.  Plus I got to spend the day with people who are important to me!!! 
Today has been a more laid back day as we "recover" from the planning and pieces that go into hosting an event like that.  It is always a blessing to be able to serve that way...and we had many willing helpers to work alongside us! 

Last week, we recorded more Women Encouraging Women radio shows...which I'm excited to share with you each week.  I've got a stack of editing to do this week which is my off week from recording.  In fact, my week looks pretty quiet which is a treat...just normal responsiblities and one cleaning job (my other one is on vacation). 

We got 2 inches of snow this morning.  We were supposed to get 8-10 inches, so I'm happy that we did not get nearly that much!!!  I'm truly ready for Spring and warm weather to stay!

Shabbat...ah what a wonderful day!

I decided to title this post "Shabbat...ah what a wonderful day!" as that is so true.  Shabbat is always a blessing of physical, mental, and spritual refreshing! 

This past week, I enjoyed some training webinars through Nature's Sunshine each evening.  Thursday was my cleaning jobs...then cleaning our house in preparation for Shabbat. And to top it off right before Shabbat, I got the news that I passed my first case study which was super exciting news!!! Only three lessons in my one course and two more case studies till I am a Naturopathic Doctor!!!

We got sleet and freezing rain on Monday night.  This is the picture I took that night at what was left behind on the side of our house!!!

Then we got the news this week that two different family friends experienced the loss of a loved one this week.  So sad.  Thankfully, we can rejoice they are both in a better place...but difficult on the loved ones left behind.  Please pray for both families.  

Today was a refreshing day spent as a family...and now beginning my new week.  Plus I'm looking forward to a fun day tomorrow spending the day with friends.
