Let me share a little about my background. Thank you for your interest!
I devoted most of my life to breaking free from a myriad of (perceived) limitations that long held me back. I had nagging health issues including life long seasonal allergies, emotional challenges, and a host of regrets from bad choices.
After decades of focus on healing through eating healthy whole fresh foods, and natural supplements and therapies, along with endless inner work, I had a startling and unexpected turn around in my life.
While it may have seemed out of the blue at the time, I am sure the seeds had been planted long ago. They just took time to sprout.
Around 2018 or thereabouts, what burst forth was a strong urge to know God. I prayed to know the truth ~ directly ~ not from a book or other people. And I prayed to know if Jesus was real, as I held a lot of disbelief, despite believing in God, or a great Creator of all life. I also had an overwhelming desire to finally read the Bible.
I don't believe there are words to describe the process as each person may experience it differently. Suffice it to say, it was as if the blinders fell away. I suddenly could 'see' very clearly, I felt light as a feather, and my heart swelled with love ~ for everyone I encountered, but especially for Jesus. We are so blessed to have such an amazing, benevolent, and loving God ~ who rewards us with blessed fruitful lives when we obey His laws and commandments.
I thank God for His patience as I can look back and see His hand in my life. I inadvertently turned away many times, and suffered the consequences.
In fact, I have no doubt my life was spared supernaturally more than once, especially during a couple peaceful winter drives through the mountains between Aspen, Colorado where I had been living and working, and New Mexico where I was attending acupuncture school. One time in particular I jolted awake to find myself in the wrong lane, with a truck coming right at me, and a car on my right. I have no idea how I maneuvered myself to safety, and in truth, don't believe I could have without angelic help.
Through my own decades long drive to free myself ~ physically, emotionally, and financially ~ I have witnessed so much suffering and ill health that I now believe is because we have collectively fallen from the vine.
Yes, a big part of disease stems from poor diets, lack of exercise, and unnatural lifestyles. Yet, there is much more to healing than just improving diet, taking appropriate supplements, grounding, and getting sunshine ~ although all of that is important.
While struggle, stress, anxiety, worry, and fear may seem to be a 'normal' part of our daily life, it's not natural! We are not meant to be experiencing such unprecedented depression, anxiety and dis-ease!
If you are tired of struggling, like I was, and ready for a better GPS ~ namely the Divine Operating System, or DOS ~ perhaps my spiritual coaching services (largely offered by donation) would be of benefit. If you want to improve your health through diet, meal planning, and/or health and fitness coaching, I am available for that as well.
You can learn more about Meats & Sweets, fitness, and more by following me on my YouTube Channel or on Instagram, both at StrongSpiritWoman.

Despite years and years of following New Age teachings and accumulating several certifications that I did NOT list above (like Reiki, channeling, and magnified healing), and cultivating a positive reputation as an intuitive channel of energy healing and messages via various readings, and after a year long intensive Zen Buddhist meditation practice, and an equally intensive two year long yoga study program with Iyengar yoga certified teachers ~ I fell away from all of it. It all served its purpose, but something instinctively caused me to look elsewhere. This was all prior to my being 'regenerated' or 'born again.'
I believe God allowed me to travel these roads, to learn and ultimately find my way back 'home.' Had I been a truly regenerated / born again Christian earlier on in my life, I'm quite sure my life would have turned out much differently. However, that's just a hunch, and irrelevant at this point. What matters to me now is to align with my DOS to serve HIS purpose, rather than continually strive to serve my own!
My personal hobbies or past times involve being in Nature, walking/hiking, writing, reading, training with my husband, Coach Don, using body weight resistance, barbells, and the X3 elastic band training system.
