Our Inspiration

The Lord will guide you continually, watering your life when you are dry and keeping you healthy, too.  You will be like a well watered garden like an ever-flowing spring.Isaiah 58:11 (NLT)


DRINK, DRINK, DRIINK!  Water that is. (I just got up and filled up my glass.)

Joanie Rauch* is a member of our tribe and a health coach  She shared this with me: “Our bodies are made up of 60% water which is stored in our cells. Most people walk around chronically dehydrated and don’t even know it.  The goal should be to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day.  If you weigh 160, that’s 80 ounces!  Many times, we mistake the need for water as “hunger”, so we grab a snack.  Next time you think you feel hungry, drink some water first!”

This is so true! You might think you need to eat but maybe a big glass of water will satisfy that craving.  I like to add citrus essential oils to my water. (Caution: only some brands of essential oils can be safely ingested. Do your research or contact me for more information.)  You can also infuse your water with fresh fruits. Adding sliced cucumbers is also very refreshing. So today, fill up a large container of water and vow to empty it a few times throughout the day. Try replacing your urge to snack with several ounces of water.  Stay hydrated and it will benefit you in many ways.
