from my heart

Learning to heal and nourish our bodies through the resources God put on Earth in His creation has long been a study of mine… Here is where I’ll share what I learn as I have time to do so!

I’ll share recipes-both THM and just “less sugary” options :) …Sometimes I may just post a link to another blog… there are several with very yummy healthy recipes!

I’ll also post promos for Young Living Essential Oils… and tid-bits I learn here and there about these A-mazing oils!

so, here is a bit about ME:

ress.sun.meHi. My name is Tascha, and my personal journey with the Lord began when I was a small child. I trusted Christ as my Savior at the age of 4 and learned much in Sunday school and from my mother.

As I got older, I did not stay close to the Lord through personal study and this caused confusion and sin in my life. During my junior year in college I got ‘reassurance’ of my salvation, but it really was just that: a reassurance. I was already a child of God, and his chastening brought me back to Him.

I began my journey as a wife in June ’03 [just after college graduation], but everyday I realize how much farther this journey must take me before I reach the end.

I began my journey as a mother about 2 months later, and our firstborn [Kyria] came into our arms in April ’04.  Our next 3 blessings were born in April ’07 [Anya], October ’08 [Mikalah], and June ’11 [Corban].

This journey as parents is a blessing and a conviction each and every day!

My personal journey into a natural way of healing and a more nourishing way of eating came when my second daughter began having issues with eczema… It seems as though she’s grown out of it, but oils and some diet change seemed to calm the storm when it was raging in her little body.

From there… I took drastic measures and got rid of 50 lbs after our son was born… I could loose a few more, but am happy to have found a way to maintain my weight loss without starving myself {enter Trim Healthy Mama}… eventually, when I have more funds, resources and space to devote to cleaner eating, I hope drop a couple more. But I am truly happy with where I am.

After being introduced to Young Living Essential Oils, I have a renewed desire to learn more about how the things we put into our bodies effect our health–becuase they do! It is true that “we are what we eat…” and we ALSO “are what medicines do to us.” Side-effects are not fun… and there are no pharmacueticals that do not have some kind of possible side-effect. Yes, essential oils can be and have been abused, but then, so have pharmacueticals. I also dabble in learning about herbs and tinctures…and using food to heal our bodies from the inside.

Just for the record, I am not against prescription medicines and doctors!! I believe they have their place in our journey to health and have learned MUCH to help our bodies… and there are even doctors who condone the use of EOs, but it seems most are skeptical to recommend a product they have never studied. And the fact that someone can spend years to become a physician without  having explored the simplest and most basic ways to help our bodies restore themselves naturally disturbs me.

I have {mostly} been a stay-at-home-mom, learning about God & life, womanhood, friendship, nutrition, needle-work, natural health, photography & graphic design!

Some days I stay on track. Some days I do not. Often I share  on my facebook page!

I hope you feel encouragement here to live a healthier life!!
