[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Are you afraid to get out there and be bold? Reticent and shy in front of others? If this is a yes, I understand it and empathize with you… because I am constantly conquering fear. (more…)
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]For me one of the most simple, yet profound books that has touched my heart has been The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. I first ‘found’ and read the classic book when I was at a low point separated from my husband (we have since remarried) and unemployed. My weight had crept up and i was living with my Aunt and Uncle trying to find a job, any job.
Sitting here, reliving a bit of that pain and uncertainty…well. God is Good. I believe He found me where I was that day.
At the time, the library and brick and mortar bookstores were my solace. (I miss having a Barnes and Noble every five miles.) There, I would sit for hours sending out my resume and reading anything I could to encourage myself. It was a horrible winter that year in Maryland and feeling incredibly alone and like a big loser, I stumbled upon this book, which I read completely in a night. I continued to read and re-read the book! It has been a treasure to my life.
The principles are simple –have an simple trust in our Lord and believe He can and will help you. So simple, yet no other book has quite touched me the way Mr. Peale’s book has.
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It came to me several weeks ago that not everyone believes some of the basics that I have taken for granted. One of these things is the importance of health and considering taking multiple vitamins to enhance your health. As I am getting back into the swing with a busy, active baby, I have been working to improve my nutrition lifestyle. In prayer as I am writing this for guidance, I was surprised to hear from various acquaintances and friends that do not regularly take any sort of vitamins, not even vitamin C.
Having a Mom who has been a naturopathic/herbalist for over 30 years, she instilled in us (okay, made us) take our chewable vitamins all throughout our youth. Mommy (yes, I call her Mommy) could not afford to have us stay at home sick from school. My brother can attest that we were rarely sick, Praise God. Was it because of the vitamins? I believe yes.
During my pregnancy, and being *ahem a bit oh-el-dee-ee-are, I tried various pre-natal vitamins to help maintain my energy ALONG with working on my nutrition in my foods.
Here are some wonderful discoveries I made during that time. I am NOT an expert, just a person who like you wants to get honest input that could help. In this world of information, who knows what is real and what is not. Be mindful of the vitamins you take, as some use synthetic forms of the vitamin that can affect you negatively.
I am praying that these ideas are of help to you, in Jesus name. – Yorrelle
