Treasures from Heaven

Educating children's hearts and minds...True education isn't just about learning facts and figures, but developing character as well. History teaches courage; science teaches integrity; math teaches discipline; and composition teaches humility. Training minds and molding hearts are what parents do best, after all.

Kids Inspired!

Check out my new website!!! I am thrilled to teach Preschool AND Piano lessons. The preschool kids will get lessons at the end of each day. There are also group and private piano lessons offered.

I just can't stop teaching piano. I think I'm addicted!! :)

New Chapter!

Yeah! We've moved into our new home a couple of weeks ago and LOVE it! With our new chapter in a new ward we get to once again settle in. With this move changes are happening also!

The kids will start at the neighborhood school in January. There are some important goals that I need to reach asap and I can't keep up my health with that and homeschooling my kids. I never thought it would come to this, but I know this is the wisest decision for our family at this time! Yes, we are all nervous. The school is one of the top in Gilbert, so I'm excited!!!

Been a while?

So, it's been quite a journey since I've recorded anything. The whirlwind of events have kept us running and I hope in the right direction.

I'm still working on improving my health and pinpointing the cause of the discomfort, but it's narrowing down. Bowen Therapy is very helpful! Prolotherapy for my lower back pain has been amazing! Diet, exercise, and a less stressful life are also keys that I'm finding I CAN'T ignore.

We're enjoying the holiday season right now and are so grateful for the blessings we've seen daily in our family and look forward to spending time with family even more!!! I've been blessed to be a mom of 6 amazing children and a husband who is truly my best friend!

Bowen Therapy

Have you ever heard of Bowen Therapy? Some family members heard about it and I've tried it out now 4 times and have had amazing results. I'm sure it's not over yet, but I'm excited about the progress I've had. I felt so good today I over did it! What symptoms do I have now? Simply minor back pain here and there. Sometimes a little pain in my limbs, but NOTHING like I had. The pain has gone down from a 5 on my good days to a 1!!! I sure have taken advantage of my good health for years. I appreciate the little progress each week! Check it out!

I think I'm good to go with Homeschooling another year! I was worried that I wouldn't have the strength, but have received a blessing from Heaven.....once again!!! The inspiration came so quickly as I planned out the year, made up the schedule to start out with, and then be able to figure out how best to help each child. YEAH!!!!

When it rains it pours.....

....and I don't mean in a negative way. My heart is just full of the gratitude and love for the people in my life. I love the fact that I have an opportunity to love many people at a deeper level. The service we've received in the past week reminds me of God's love.

I still haven't received a definite answer as to the cause of this, but I have been to a couple of dentists to find out if I have infections in the gum area or deeper. With their capabilities nothing was detected.

Another shot in the tonsils wasn't enjoyable, but I feel improvement. I've added a couple more natural substances to my day also. Gargling, swishing, more rest,.....water, water, water!!! Something's working this week to lift the pain a little.

Prayer....prayer.....prayer....I know the Lord is mindful of me!!!

AND I'm not finished yet. I have been gathering a lot of information from many reliable sources and look forward to trying the next step as the Spirit guides.

I look forward to each day to see what it brings! More positive rain to help me grow!!!

My Good Things....

If you haven't watched the clip "Good Things to Come" by Elder Holland I recommend it before reading my post! It's after this post.

With more detoxing this past couple of weeks I have not felt the best. The kids and I enjoyed working on Unit Studies, swimming, scrapbooking, and anything else we could do. When my energy gone they let me take naps when I reached my breaking point! I love having children who are old enough and responsible to take care of each other.

The thorough test results showed only one thing. An infection of some sort. I was relieved to see that there wasn't any autoimmune issues as well as rheumatoid, thyroid, etc. So now what? With the signs of an infection the Doctor sent one test back to get more information on it. I then hesitantly, yet in faith, started on an aggressive antibiotic. Not fun! I can tell that there is medication in my body and am replenishing the negative side-effects with all the natural supplements I have.

I received the results from a more in-depth test on this infection two days ago. It seems that there is a Chronic Strep infection that is pretty intense. Looking back to where my tonsils are he saw they have atrophied and basically are not helping the issue.

The bottom line is that my immune system is shot! Amazing! I wonder if having 6 children in 8 years had anything to do with this. Tough pregnancies? Stress? Depression? :) No matter what it is I added a couple more techniques from my Doctor. He gave me a shot in my tonsils to help "wake them up". I have to admit that I have felt somewhat better from that! I am still getting an IV of Vitamins weekly as well as taking all the supplements here at home and eating as organically as I can with my no-wheat-yeast-dairy diet. Man, it's been a learning experience!

Back aches are still there and my head feels like I'm taking meds, but I feel progress! I don't feel like I have the flu ALL day!!! I hope to continue on this path.

I look forward to getting rid of the infection, which is causing the inflamation through my back, and rebuilding my immune system to "run and not be weary, walk and not faint".!!!

I agree that "Good Things" are happening and I love what's in store!!!

A Glimpse into My Life

My photo
I LOVE LOVE LOVE being a mother!!! Married to my sweetheart, Greg, and bring in six amazing children down to earth has been the most wonderful experience! Our kids keep us busy with their curiosity and excitement for life. We laugh, learn, cry, read, and pray together all the time. The memories we are making as they grow up are ones I wouldn't change for the world!
