Everybody Needs A Pill

In today’s society, there is a pill for everything, God forbid anyone feel anything or get to the root of the problem with lifestyle changes. Why would you want to do hard work when there is an “easy” way, a pill to pop and the problems go away.

Or do they? Have you seen those warnings at the bottom of commercials for any drug they are advertising? They aren’t there because it might happen. They are there because they HAVE happened. People’s organs have shut down. People have died. Think that statistic is miniscule. Think that won’t be you? Think that won’t ever happen to anyone you know?

If you are friends with us, you know it did. Instead of listening to my gut, I listened to the pharmaceutical companies and we landed in the E.R. after an excruciatingly long ambulance ride with my oldest son.

And that’s just our story, the one that wasn’t recorded as an adverse reaction to a vaccine (so those low stats they told you aren’t accurate after all). I know people think I’m crazy, crazy for having a baby outside of a hospital, reckless for not vaccinating Zekie, straight up hippie for using oils (I’ve seen the eye rolls when I mention them), but that’s ok.

Everyone is entitled to their own views. I hope instead of judging us for our path, you will dig a little deeper and see why we’ve made these choices. Here are a couple clips that a friend posted recently that struck a cord with me. Check them out and see what you think. Have you had a reaction to a medication before or been prescribed one you don’t need?







Free Market Health Care?

Here’s an interesting article on why the government can’t save our health care and why a TRUE free market would be best.

The Free Market had Nothing to Do with our Health Care Crisis

Here’s a chart from the article that shows how health care expenses have risen steadily since 1929:

Prayers of Healing

I was recently given this book, Prayers and Promises for My Little Boy and as I was reading through it, one particular prayer hit me (as is often the case):

“Lord, because you have instructed us in Your Word that we are to pray for one another so that we may be healed, I pray for healing and wholeness for – Kingston. I pray that sickness and infirmity will have no place in his life.

I pray for protection against any disease coming into his body. Whenever there is disease, illness, or weakness in him, I pray that You, Lord, would touch him with Your healing power and restore him to total health.”


Would you pray this with us for total healing (& guidance on the right steps for that)?

“Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” —James 5:16
