Faith, Hope, And Your Life's Purpose May 10 2016

Two years ago seemed like the darkest hour of my life. I had no idea that a diagnosis would teach me how to live life to the fullest. I didn't, couldn't, realize at that time that I would opt for a fighter's mentality instead of a defeated one. I couldn't comprehend until I was actually in the trenches that my life WAS worth fighting for, if for no other reason than my family. I had yet to learn that no day should be taken for granted and each should be treated as a precious hand-delivered gift from God. In 2014, at just 46-years old, my dr... Read More..

Healthy Snacks To Help Relieve Chronic Pain April 27 2016

Chronic pain affects 1.5 billion people worldwide. More people are affected by chronic pain than heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined. The good news is that what you eat can help relieve chronic pain symptoms and inflammation.  Food can either make or break you when it comes to pain and inflammation. If you're one of those people like myself who is genetically predisposed to pain at the slightest touch, you need to know the foods that encourage pain and inflammation to flare and those that fight pain and inflammation.

Why Abdominal Fat Is Dangerous October 06 2015

Belly fat is very different than fat covering the hips and thighs. Fat stored around the middle produces substances that can create serious health risks, one of those being breast cancer. That's why if you have excess belly fat covering your stomach, it can make losing weight practically impossible. Women over 40 years of age, who store fat around their midsection or have been treated for breast cancer, require an entirely different approach when it comes to losing weight. The typical weight loss plan will not work. If you’re reading this, I... Read More..

My Melanoma Miracle, Part 2: Lisa Lynn June 03 2014

As I spoke about in Part 1 of "My Melanoma Miracle", I had a melanoma removed from my left calf in January of this year (2014). It was only through the grace of God that I insisted on the mole being removed as it showed no signs of change in shape or size. Little did I know of the attack that was coming against my body from the inside out. But God knew and He led me with that still, small voice that I am convinced radically changed my life - for the better.I told you in Part 1 that I wanted to talk about how honoring and respecting our bodie...

This is my very personal melanoma story. I'm not sharing this with you to scare you or depress you. I'm certainly not seeking pity or compassion.

You Are Stronger Than Cancer! October 10 2013

I have learned the MOST important life lessons while working with cancer survivors and their families. Those lessons have taught me to appreciate my body because it carries me through my life every day. Instead of always complaining "it's not perfect", I am reminded how cancer survivors tell me you don't know how blessed you are until "that moment" arrives and your whole world changes, forever. Cancer survivors always come in excited to work out because they GET TO WORK OUT! I don't see the usual "I don't want to", or "I don't have time." T... Read More..
