These 5 Foods Hurt Me, Are They Hurting You?

These 5 Foods Hurt Me, Are They Hurting You?

Food seems to have some special power over us, doesn’t it? I, like so many of you, grew up in an environment where food played a central role. Along with my family, I used food to celebrate special and not-so-special occasions. In my case, as a nutritionist, I work with food and counsel women about nutrition at many levels. Food was—and is—an integral part of my life.

I Can’t Lose Weight No Matter What I Do!

I Can’t Lose Weight No Matter What I Do!

My dear sisters, I can’t tell you how many times I hear this from my readers and all the women whom I come across who are struggling with their weight. And in the not so distant past, I was shouting this weight loss frustration from the depths of my soul as well. I not only could not lose weight; it also was packing on the pounds, even though I thought I was eating the healthiest foods.

But I learned something life-changing: Not only was I wrong about what I was eating. I also discovered the real reason behind my inability to lose weight.

My dear sisters:

I feel so blessed to be back with you after being away for several months. I hope you are as ready and psyched as I am about making 2019 and the years beyond more vibrant, healing, and fulfilling for all of us.

One of the best ways to embrace and realize these goals is to make personal, healthy changes in our lives. In my last blog, “I Have a Confession to Make,” I told you we would be exploring ways to meet our health challenges, and I invited you to join me on this journey. Welcome! I hope you are ready to begin as we learn and grow and heal together.

I Have A Confession To Make

My dear sisters, 

I have been away for a while. Not just physically, as demonstrated by the lack of blog posts in recent months. No, I have been away mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well. Please know that I held all of you in my heart during that time, but you did not know that, and for that I am sorry. 

I did not step away willingly from Divine Renewal. But, as we all know, life tosses us challenges from time to time. For the past few months, I have been dodging and weaving the incoming barrage.

The Greatest Gift

The Greatest Gift

Dear  Sister, 
Welcome to what is often called the most wonderful time of the year: the holiday season that seems to consume the month of December and beyond. It’s a huge gift-giving time of year when we focus on family gatherings and a shopping list: what to get nieces and nephews, best friends, spouses and kids, and coworkers.

It’s also a time when it’s easy to become overwhelmed with small details, such as how many cookies you need to bake for your child’s school holiday party, what to wear to the company holiday event, when you’ll have time to shop on the weekend, what to make for the family holiday dinner, and can your budget possibly stretch to meet these and other expectations of the holiday season.
