A Quick Update on Life... :D

"Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was
good." Genesis 1:11-13

I'm sorry I haven't been able to post much this week! We have been really busy as usual. :) Our family is about to start a new therapy that involves a radical change in diet. It includes juicing (and then of course, drinking) fresh fruits and vegetables each day. It also includes eating only organic fruits and veges -- no meat, sugar, dairy, etc.! It's going to be really hard... but we've already cleaned out the fridges and stocked them full with all organic vegetables and fruits. (The meals we've made so far have definitely been interesting!) Oh, and you cannot use any seasonings at all, which means goodbye to salt and pepper. :( They say that after being on the full therapy for a week your tastebuds will start to taste the natural flavors in the vegetables again. Right now everything tastes pretty blah, but we're still not even doing the full therapy yet.

So anyway... we believe that doing this will really help our whole family's health to improve, but most importantly, my dad's. We're trusting that God will heal him through this. Most of the people who have followed this therapy have been healed of their cancer and even MS just by simply changing the way they eat. But they say that with MS it gets worse before it gets better. We just have to be diligent and stick with it. So, if you feel led then please pray for us as we do this! It's going to take a whole lot of work.

Thank you so much for praying! :) May the Lord bless you and keep you!

Hey Taylor! I'm vegan too. Have you heard of the Hallelujah Diet? It's very similar to the diet your family is starting in that they encourage lots of juicing and raw vegetables! We have some good vegan recipes that I can send you if you'd like. I'll be praying for your family as I know it's not easy to change your diet. Please let me know if you would for me to send you the recipes! ~Blessings, Eden
P.S. You could contact me at my blog

Taylor said...

Thank you, Eden! The Hallelujah Diet does sound familiar. :) We might like to get some more recipes... so you may be hearing from me soon! ;) (But we can only use ones that have strictly fruits and veges with maybe some plain yogurt or flax seed oil, etc. We're very limited!) :D Thank you very much for praying for us!!
