Crying Out to God

One Sunday, a few months ago I had been convicted through a seminar that I was going through at the time. I told my husband to take the kids and leave me to meet my Creator in peace. He was kind enough to not question anything and take the kids swimming. Soon after they left, I fell on the bed, on my face and cried out to God. Literally, cried out, yelled out, sobbed and poured out my heart to my heavenly Father. All of my doubts and fears was layed out, infront of Him, as I clenched onto the covers and whimpered everything to Him.

"God you know my fears, my struggles, my pain... I choose to follow You, live out my convictions, have mercy on me!"

One thing in particular was on the top of my list,


Such a difficult and nauseous time for me. Nothing sweet about my pregnancies, just torture. 

"Oh God, if we are to leave the number of the children we have, up to you, would you please take the burden of my pregnancies??"

Well here I am TODAY, 7 weeks pregnant. We're expecting again. Our #4 :)

Do I feel nauseous? -YES! But nothing, nothing and once again nothing, compares to what I had to endure 3 pregnancies before. I have been lifted up, my cry has been heard and I am "standing" by His strength only.

I'm going to blog about this pregnancy. How I am coping, what I am learning, eating and doing. Stay tuned!

My Frugal Protein

How can you throw together a high protein meal,  when money is sparse?

Tuna,  eggs, peanut butter and black beans are high in protein! Black beans are cheap to buy in dry bulk. Soak over night, rinse, boil and store in the fridge. Add to salads, omelette,  stews...


Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

Has been in my daily water for a month now. It has done so much good to me. I REALLY feel the difference in my whole body.
Do you want to add some healthy to your everyday life, just 1t at a time? You won't regret it! Just sharing the good with you all.... Hugs!


Healthy Chicken Pita

I'm really paying more attention on my diet. Not in a dieting sense, but as in  nutritional sense. This meal is one of my favourite!

Chicken Salad :

2T Homemade mayonnaise
2T fat free Greek Yogurt
Handful of cranberries (dried)
1 C diced chicken (I preboiled it and then diced it)
Handful of chopped baby spinach
Iceberg lettuce
Whole wheat pita cut in half.

Homemade mayonnaise :

One egg
1T vinegar
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder

Mix well

Add 1/2 oil and blend well. Nutribullet/blender works best. (won't work well with grapeseed, olive or coconut oil:( )
