Homemade Cherry Pie LÄRABAR Recipe~ Paleo, GF

As our daughter was headed to India in February, we started gathering things she needed to take along. Besides getting her passport up-dated, there was bug spray, hand-sanitizer, band-aids for blisters, soap, toilet paper, and all sorts of third-world needs. Portable food such as trail mix and energy bars were also on the suggested list.

We’ve been avoiding certain not-so-good ingredients in energy bars, so the concept of the LÄRABAR (with only 3 or 4 ingredients) works for us. They taste terrific, but the store price per bar is a bit up there at ~$1.25. Also, since the company sold out to General Mills, I dislike supporting a company that attempts to block GMO labeling initiatives.

The Words You Are About to Experience Are True

It has been years since my sister told me about finding a special CD to play for a friend who was dying of cancer. She told me of the peace and power that listening brought to our friend and even to the others present in the hospital room that day.

Cacao vs. Cocoa: What’s The Difference?

How delicious is chocolate? Ummmmm it’s so delicious, but there’s also a lot of confusion about chocolate—what type to eat, how much, and what types to avoid.

So I decided it was time to get educated about all the new research on chocolate. I didn’t even know how to pronounce ‘cacao’! Any time I can learn or share something that will help Mothers and Wives get or stay healthier so we can be strong and serve our families better, I am all for that! We all pretty much love chocolate, right?

The Victor Marx [True] Story Of Healing and Forgiveness

I have thought and prayed about sharing this powerful video on Deep Roots At Home. I believe it helps us know better how to pray for the hurting youth of today and affirms in a mighty way that Jesus Christ is the only way to true healing, forgiveness, and restoration even in those with the most difficult of pasts.

Tender hearts might feel uncomfortable with the first 2 minutes. Continue reading

Gluten-Free Raisin Scone Recipe

Eating totally gluten-free isn’t easy. For most of us, it is a one-step-at-a-time process. In our family, these delectable raisin scones were one of those first steps. Scones are probably the easiest and quickest of breads.

When you are new to the gluten-free diet, the simplest and healthiest approach is to start with fresh, naturally gluten-free foods. Almond flour is naturally gluten-free.

Want Great Sleep? Turn Off Your Night Lite {and a few other things}

Want Great Sleep? Turn Off Your Night Lite {and a few other things}

 Years ago ‘in the dark ages’, I heard someone say that a night light in our bedroom would mess with our ability to get restful and restorative sleep. As you may know, my husband and I had 20 years of infertility, so I was interested in anything that could be causative. Getting poor sleep was suggested as just one possible reason for infertility.

Dr. Mercola says that science is finding that light-at-night sleep deprivation can have serious, long-reaching health consequences:

My Version ~ Good Girl Moonshine!

For years, it’s been the trend to carry along a water bottle or favorite drink wherever you go. Healthy All-Day-Sipping is a good habit to establish and easy enough to do.

1.) I am less hungry at meals

2.) More satisfied between meals

3.) Gives staying power and alert mental focus in the afternoon when I’m usually sleepy
