It's been fun blogger.

This blog has posts from back in 2011 when I first moved to Mexico living and volunteering at RSM, my journey to Spanish School in Oaxaca, and the ministry work that I was a part of in Queretaro, Mexico.
It was bits and pieces into my life.

I have started another blog on wordpress of my life currently. I am trying out wordpress this time around.Here is the link :

Health (come)/Candida (be gone) Update

Health (come)/Candida (be gone) Update-

You may or may not remember back in 2014-2015, my first and second year in Queretaro, Mexico that I came to realize (after the whole year prior in Oaxaca suffering with what I thought were the symptoms of worms) that I had not worms but rather Candida... which started me on a journey of healing my gut to get rid of the nasty symptoms that came. In trying to get rid of Candida naturally (with my wonderful herbal medicine that for whatever reason I never took as consistently as I needed to and the Candida Diet... which is pretty much raw low starch veggies , no sugar, no carby foods) I had about a 2-3 day detox/sugar withdraw. 'Quickly' I recovered and felt pretty great. Quickly, all the nasty symptoms disappeared and with them the candida. It has been a battle for the last 2-3 years BUT the past year all the symptoms have gone except for the pain in my abdomen/upper stomach area after I've eaten even the littlest amount of starch, grain or sugary foods. Honestly, I hadn't eaten raw veggies straight, for months like I need and want. 

Now, I am excited to go after this. And not only kill the Candida but also make it a lifestyle of healthy living, where I no longer choose what I once did and no longer give in to the crappy food just because it is cheaper. We are called to love others as ourselves!! How can I love others well if I am not loving myself (including my body/mind) well? Of course, there is so much grace and I am no strict person about this, but I sure have become passionate about feeling good physically everyday, feeling strong and not letting my cravings take over which frees me up.

It has been a journey of messing up so much and realizing why I want this. I get to live and make a difference. I want people to know that healing is available- soul, body, and spirit because of Jesus Christ. Your body doesn't have to control you, you get to control your body. I want to show the world by example.

 So, with that said,

I had just begun to read two incredible books (that have been inspiring me, so maybe you'll love them too):

1. Healthy & Free by Beni Johnson and

2. Think & Eat Yourself Smart by Dr. Caroline Leaf

and THEN, last Sunday I saw an announcement for "You Can Be Well" conference that is happening the first days in February. 

I have the opportunity to attend this upcoming conference here at Bethel Church BUT I do not have the extra funds to register to attend on my own. If you want to invest in this journey and HUGE area of my life... you are more than welcome. I appreciate you whether you give or not. The cost to register is $149.00 and it is from Feb 2- Feb 4... It is coming up quick!  I was motivated to simply ask. You may see me reaching out and pass on by but if you would think about the opportunity to invest and help a home girl out... I WOULD be SO thankful.  After attending the conference I plan to write more about my journey and give away what I can to those who are looking for health and healing that lasts.

Here is a small announcement about the conference

(Maybe you'll even want to take the trip to Redding to attend!) :

 Discover how you can experience breakthrough and positive, lasting change in your approach to health and wellness. This multi-day conference will inspire and motivate you to step into God’s best, as we unlock together the three parts of a healthy you – Spirit, Soul and Body! Featuring in-depth instruction and practical encouragement from medical professionals, as well as Bethel’s own teaching team, we invite you to join us for a life-changing conference that will cause you to leave with a whole new perspective on life – living in the promise that “You can be well!”

to be a lover (seattle mission trip update)

(I'm going to write a separate post as an update of this new year at BSSM, so lookout for that post.)

It is our turn to put into practice all that we are learning here at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM). We are now going from being receivers to givers. From taking in love and identity while in “face time” with Jesus to now loving others out of that place of intimacy with Him. So, here is an opportunity to take a further step out of comfort. Because, people transformed by love will do anything for love. “Lover” has become my occupation and I want everyone to know its benefits.

So why am I telling you this? Because you too have the chance be involved here… love on the people of Seattle with us. Since you won’t be going in person, send me. Giving is HUGE part of the Kingdom of God. If you are going to give then give joyfully and believe that what you give really matters because it does.

My total Spring Mission Trip cost is $700.00. As of today, I have $405.00 still to raise for the BSSM Spring Mission trip to Seattle, WA. I would love to get half of that withing the next few days with YOUR help! :) If you feel lead to give towards my goal I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for those who keep on giving! Pray with us over Seattle. If you have considered giving to get me there, here is the link to my account:
Apart from me asking you friends and family, I was thinking of creative ways to raise money and I remembered my time in Mexico. I remembered the multiple times that I’ve removed hair lice from my students, friends or random people in Mexico who needed it. I did it for free then but now here in the USA I will be removing lice to raise money for the trip AND at the same time help people get rid of an obnoxious and frustrating pest. It's a win/win. (If you live in Redding California, I would love it if you would simply share this message with your friends.)

Thank you in advance for your time, prayers, and support.
You are greatly appreciated.

communication: exchanging the truth inside

"If your heart, is governed by fear, then you are going to telegraph that through your body language, facial expressions, words, and tone. Conversely, if your heart is goverened by faith, hope, and love, you will release this reality through what you say and how you say it.
... if your heart is goverened by fear, then much of what you communicate is actually designed to hide what is really going on inside... fear of truth is the great hijacker of communication. When you don't have either the courage or the ability to face the truth of what you feel, think, and need, you end up communicating confusing and inaccurate information- sometimes even downright falsehoods."

My truth timeline (for now).

This is my foundation and continual building/growing-timeline of truth. 
From what I recall in my walk with God. This is how I experienced Him. From glory to glory. I wrote this out to see where I have came from and to where I am going. This is what I've tasted and seen over the past 6-7 years in the USA and in Mexico as a missionary and back in the USA. It will only get better. I will keep seeing different sides of His face. Some of these truths came while reading the Bible and other times it came listening to a song, in the quiet, in class, on the beach, in my tears, or while dancing... He is faithful and in our closeness I see more of His beauty and who I really am in Him. Written in order...ish..

God is good (my first encounter) I am a mess and need him

Came to know His Mercy and grace (Met him AS Mercy and Grace.)

Jesus saves and has made a way

Surrender my ways and make myself a willing vessel 
Thankful heart

Reverence and awe of His holiness

Service to others.

Abide in Presence 

I hear from God and He hears me

Provided for 

Contentment always 

Cling to Jesus (Presence) 

He knows me and sees me


Knowing him as my Help 

God heals now 

Victory over sin

Holy One 

Gospel mindset shift/revelation  [jesus redeemed the world AND there is more... he saved us for us so we could DWELL in the Kingdom of God to be close to God always... Salvation AND sanctification. The Gospel wasn't intended to only save us but also to keep us close...Jesus's death and resurrection ALLOWED us to see and live heaven here and now, we can walk in all the victory that Jesus has. His victory is our victory] 

Surrender my dreams and/or idols (keep no one/no thing) in his place. Hold it all loosely. 

God is not afraid of our mess. He can handle the truth. He wants to KNOW us. All of it. 

Intimacy with God (from that place everything flows)

No shame 

No rejection from God (no fear of rejection)

God hates religion and slavery  

Obedience (even if hard and scary) 
Obedience = freedom 

Use the word "NO". Guard your yes. 

Emotions are not scary, so feel and give them to Jesus.  (it's ok to feel and express it all to the one who loves and knows us. We can cry. We can say "I'm tired", we can let go of knowing or performing. 

We don't have to try we don't have to strive. We are enough and loved.

Waves of freedom (to be)

"Faith is spelled r.i.s.k"

Pursued hard and loved, sought after (Pursuer)

Know Him as Provider King (myself as Royalty)

Mindset shift- poverty to royalty... coming from a place of lack and never enough to abundance and "I died that there will always be enough"

Perfectionism gone, performance to please and fear of man gone gone gone  

(Real) honor isn't demanding 

Boldness and fearlessness 

As a child of God, I am a prophetic person 

My voice is powerful  

God actually likes us... He died to be close. He is interested in us. Don't ever think he isn't interested.  John 3:16 
The world needs me to be ME (I am made in his image and will reflect him like no one else can)

I am a creative being because my God is creative

Shifting the atmosphere (in freedom, purity, and love) with dance, music, art, food, education, etc. 

Dreaming again

Renewed strength 

God has given us tools to be powerful people (not victims/"powerless") and brave communicators in our relationships and businesses

Signs and wonders were meant to follow the believer (we don't seek after them but rather they follow us naturally) in every sphere of life. 

Walking in purity and power (word and power) IS possible and our call. You need both and not one over the other. 

Jesus' face is home. Seek him and you find yourself.

I miss atole 
I miss hierba buena tea
I miss dipping tostadas gigantes with that hot tea when we didn't have bread to dip in the tea 
I miss getting fresh eggs from our hens each morning 
And raising chickens and the chore I had a few times to kill to the chicken we were to eat for the lunch meal that day. 
I miss the view from the roof top over the city of Querétaro.
I miss the view from the roof of my house in Oaxaca, with a view over the coconut palms to all the way to the shore and now I am remembering the view from Snoopy Rock or from one of the orange trees at RSM.
I miss the miles of wild flowers and rock in Amealco. 
I miss Caro. 
I miss eating cactus fruit. 
So much history. 

How can I keep from remembrance. All the memories flood back at night. I see everything so clearly as if I was there again, in each place again. Experiencing. It all is going so fast. I used to think each next step was so scary but I was always willing; then I made it through... now each next step is easier in faith and obedience. 

But even so, there is so much I am leaving behind not being in Mexico. I feel like a part of me has been ripped away and I don't know what to do. 
I'm in awe of where I am at presently. I feel like it is an honor to be here. But all I've known for a so long, is there. 

I feel sadness rising up in me. A sadness I haven't felt before. All I know to do is to give it up to Jesus.  I am hurting a lot and it is hard to adjust to this new way of doing life. How much am I suppose to adjust and how much am I not? Is one culture more important than the other? I am physically IN one culture but feel like my soul isn't, my experiences aren't here. I don't even know. All I know is this is hard and I NEED to rise up higher and see. I need to see like Jesus sees. I will drown if I don't rise above. What is God saying about all of this? 

He is so kind. His love is deep and wide for a reason. It reaches our deepest being. 
This love, this love, always liquid gold to me.
