We're one week out from the big Hearts at Home lecture!  I just wanted to check in with you all and see how you were doing on your habits.  Anyone start with multivitamin and fish oil?  How did the week go for you?  Is it starting to become more of your daily routine?  I wanted to encourage you to take a habit on  this week if you haven't already.  I think multivitamin and fish oil is a great one to start!  I thought I'd post the ones I am most familiar with and that we discussed in the lecture:
Fish oil: Carlson's finest fish oil, Nordic Naturals Fish Oil.
Multivitamin: New Chapter Organics Prenatal, NOW Special Two.
I'd love to hear how you all are doing!

My Heart Overflows

This week has been a week of overwhelming joy, my heart overflows with thankfulness.  On Wednesday, my small group of 8th grade girls and I did a night of prayer stations based on ACTS (Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication).  Just when I was beginning to feel like faith wasn't all that important to my girls, they overwhelmed me when they wrote out the names of God as their prayers of Adoration.  As I read them out loud, I began to weep, one of the girls had to take over for me.  God is drawing us together.  Friday and Saturday brought Hearts at Home, again another overwhelming outpouring of encouragement to me as a mother and health care provider from those at the conference who let me know how much my session on Nutrition "mattered" and "changed their lives."  I truly felt the Holy Spirit at my side at 2:40pm on Friday and Saturday, thank you to all who prayed.  God continually told me on Friday and Saturday, "I've always been by your side, Rachel, why would I not be at your side today?"  I got to finish this week baptizing one of my 8th grade girls during the Junior High service at Eastview--I've never baptized anyone before; again, my heart overflows.  Praise to you, dear Lord, who pushes us into molds we don't think we fit into.  Bless you, Father, for always being our sustenance, you have overwhelmed me with joy.

Family Friendly Super Shakes

Tomorrow I'm presenting on nutrition at the Hearts at Home Conference, so Micah and Jude joined me in the kitchen to show the ladies how we get sneaky veggies at our house. All three of my kids love these nutritional powerhouse shakes and they have a blast making them. I think they also enjoyed being on camera. What do you think?
