There are FIELDS of fatherless children waiting for someone to care for them, to love them, to tell them of JESUS' love for them...will YOU be the one??

Blog Share!

Hi All, I'm linking you up today with Kari Gibson's blog, because she has a GREAT project to share with you, and they need our support! Hint:  It has something to do with my favorite country on the PLANET;)!

If you would commit to praying for and even helping SHARE this project, that would be fantastic:)!

I have to share this crossover post from my Isagenix blog because the info is SO important for those with kiddos from hard places, who may deal with one or more learning issues!  This is eye-opening and so HOPEFUL!  Please read and if you want to email me for more info, I can share what I know from other Isagenix families that are using the products with their kiddos!!  They are more than willing to share their testimonies to how WONDERFULLY this stuff is working for their kids!! 

Day 51! HOPE for the Whole Family!

CANNOT believe it's been 51 DAYS since I started Isagenix! WOW!

Today I'm doing a deep cleanse day because I had to miss last weeks due to a tooth infection, and was on antibiotics:(.  You don't want to do a deep cleanse when you have to take meds, because more than likely, the Cleanse for Life will just cleanse away the meds! Bummer.  So, I didn't lose any weight last week either. Sigh.  Hoping for better result this week.

I really think the CFL is absolutely the best part of this program...it does SUCH a good job(for me) of helping me drop the weight quicker!  Although, I HATE HATE HATE not being able to eat shakes/meals these days...but I have to remind myself it's always been worth it!:)

I'm going back to 1 shake per day again in a week or so, and I'm extremely nervous about it.  I still want to lose about 5-10 lbs, so I have to come to grips with the fact that these last few may come off more slowly...and that's okay.  Don't want to lose any momentum, you know?!;)

But what all this has done has seriously made me look at what goes in my mouth and on my table.  I'm beginning to cook more(rather than throw something in the microwave), and I'm slowly weaning my kids off of the processed foods they're so used to.  This may take awhile folks;)...  I'm shopping more carefully and consciously for products that have less sodium, no added sugars, and are organic(if possible)...it's EYE-OPENING to say the least.  I guess I was just in denial for SO long!! So, this is all good.  I'm SO excited to see my results a YEAR from now....or even 6 MONTHS down the road.  I know that I can look forward to a MUCH healthier and more energetic future now that I'm using Isagenix products...and that makes me happy:).

One thing that keeps floating around the Adoptagenix team FB page is how wonderfully these products are ALSO working for their kids!  Parents who have kids from hard places, via international adoption, who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, etc. finally have HOPE.  The products are helping regulate their kids emotions and behaviours....helping them stay on task and open up like never before!  SUCH exciting news!  I told you from the beginning that these products were for the whole family, and they ARE!  Our kids are just as toxic as we are...if not more so in many cases, due to coming from developing countries, or orphanages with very poor nutrition and care.  They're just making tremendous improvements and many times I've been brought to tears over it!

What I want you to know is that these products WORK!  This just isn't about bonuses, and income, and signing up as many people as you can so you can earn the big bucks! This group is about giving the gift of good health to all those we know who NEED it so desperately!  Yes, it can be expensive to start....but the rewards are ENDLESS for YOUR health and your family's!  It's so worth it ya'll!  SO SO worth the investment!  Every time I hear another story about someone's child who has ADD, or whatever, I immediately think of people who need to HEAR this...they need to HEAR that this isn't another ploy to get you to sign over your life savings to an MLM company!  These are real families, experiencing REAL results! The end.  So, I HAVE to share this...I can't just sit and "hope" you'll ask me about it...  I'm just going to keep telling you, over and over and over...and pray that I can get this stuff into the hands of the people who need it most.

So, today I'll leave you with these videos by Dr. John Gray.  He has some wonderful advice for kids/adults with ADD/ADHD...which we struggle with in our home.  We'll be using a couple of his recommended products for our son, plus the Isagenix shakes for super nutrition... GOOD GOOD STUFF!

There are 3 videos in this series, and they are listed below the first one...WATCH ALL THREE!  And as always, if you have questions, PLEASE contact me..I want to share Isagenix with everyone I know, and I want you to do the same.  LIVES will be changed!

Happy Thursday!:)

Have You Seen It?

Hi All!  If you haven't hopped over to my new health and wellness blog at http://changingmechangingyou.blogspot.com/ then PLEASE do.:)

I began Isagenix's fat-burning and cleansing system a little over a month ago, and have had WONDERFUL results with it!  It is PACKED with EXCEPTIONAL nutrition and is Non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free, ALL NATURAL products.  I am amazed at how quickly it worked and how GOOD I'm feeling! 

That said, you can hop over and check the whole thing out for yourself...all 30+ days on the program! 

And if you are at a point that you KNOW you need to make some changes in your health, please feel free to contact me!  I'll give you more of the "scoop" about Isagenix.  AND....it's not just for weight-loss, it's for OPTIMIZING your health, and has tremendous benefit for  those adopted kiddos who have such poor nutritional statuses when they come home.  JUST amazing really!

As a mom of seven kids, I knew I needed to do SOMETHING to regain my health and energy, as well as hopefully, earn income for our family!  And I KNOW without a doubt now, that I'm going to do both!  I praise God every day that I found Isagenix!:)

AND....I'm on an amazing team called Adoptagenix, that is COMMITTED to using our commissions that we might make to not only get our families in order financially, but to CARE FOR ORPHANS through adopting, supporting orphanages, supporting missionaries, and getting Isagenix products into the hands of orphans worldwide!  LOVE this!!  We are the FASTEST growing group right now, I believe, in the Isagenix business....and we are making everyone's heads turn!  SO EXCITED to see God work through this group, and I HOPE you'll join us!  You'll not only get your health back to where it needs to be, but you'll be a part of something that God is blessing, BIG TIME!  WIN! WIN!;)

Check me out!:) http://changingmechangingyou.blogspot.com/
