We are "Not Just" who we seem to be on this Earthly plane, but so much more. We are ALL children of a loving God who is calling us home to Love. This blog is dedicated to those of us on that journey together…

23 days done! Today I passed on pizza and homemade ice cream during our staff meeting at work… both sugar-infused and previous favorites of mine! I’m finding it easier and easier to resist sugary foods as I get closer each day to my 30 day goal! PS I enjoyed another latte today without flavorings! It’s a …

Today marks the 22nd day of my sugar-free journey. I’m doing okay avoiding sugar, but it’s clear that I am naturally, instinctively, and perhaps even habitually drawn to sugar.

16 days sugar free! I’m over half way through my sugar-free 30 and I’m still slightly struggling but becoming more comfortable within my discomfort. I am also starting to realize I may never be a poster girl for sugar-free living…I just love love love sugar too dang much! 😝 😉❤️Ann

Whoo! Hoo! I’ve made it halfway to my original goal of 30 days without sugar! It has now been a total of 15 days without processed sugar* (including corn syrup, honey and agave) and the journey continues. I definitely felt an increase in cravings on day 15 despite taking my Candida supplement. I realize though …
