As Christian counselors, pastors and people helpers we often have a hard time discerning between an evil heart and an ordinary sinner who messes up, who isn’t perfect, and full of weakness and sin. I think one of the reasons we don’t “see” evil is because we find it so difficult to believe that evil individuals actually exist. We can’t imagine someone deceiving us with no conscience, hurting others with no remorse, spinning outrageous fabrications to ruin someone’s reputation, or pretending he or she is spiritually committed yet has no fear of God before his or her eyes. The Bible clearly tells us that among God’s people there are wolves that wear sheep’s clothing (Jeremiah 23:14; Titus 1:10; Revelations 2:2). It’s true that every human heart is inclined toward sin (Romans 3:23), and that includes evil (Genesis 8:21; James 1:4). We all miss God’ mark of moral perfection. However, most ordinary sinners do not happily indulge evil urges, nor do we feel good about having them. We feel ashamed and guilty, rightly so (Romans 7:19–21). These things are not true of the evil heart. Below are five indicators that you may be dealing with an evil heart rather than an ordinary sinful heart. If so, it requires a radically different treatment approach.

A bit of history I've not yet shared on the blog before.
I'm having a good day today because of these 4 Plexus products, Ease, Nerve, MegaX and XFactor.
Last night I was struggling to order my thoughts. I was trying to carry on a conversation on Skype chat while being mindful to not write things backwards. As I'd think of what I wanted to say my thoughts quickly faded from memory making it hard to keep up. This morning while putting the clean dishes away I found myself at a loss for where they went and then I realized I'd forgotten to take my Plexus supplements. I take them daily along with others on my treatment protocol. These four Plexus products make all the difference in the world to me. Here's why...
May is #LymeAwareness month. How easy is it to contract Lyme?
I get asked a lot of questions about Lyme disease but interestingly enough some of the first questions receive revolve around the national discussion on how prevalent Lyme is. There is conflicting information out there. Often they ask me where I was when I got it.
Myth 1: Lyme is only in certain areas. It was either Washington State or possibly Alaska.
Myth 2: Even more frequently I am asked if I was bitten by a tick. The belief that Lyme is only transferred by a tick bite is not true. I was not bitten by a tick. It was likely a mosquito.
Myth 3: Did you have the bull's eye rash? It's believed that unless you have the rash, you don't have Lyme. Yes. I had a small bulls eye rash. No, you don't have to present a rash to have Lyme disease.

There will always be times of conflict in relationships. They are opportunities when we can become more acutely aware of God's grace, how it can transform us, and by the Holy Spirit inform us on how to act in Christian love. We naturally take the low road. We fear, we speculate, we ruminate on the failings of others. We exaggerate our fears and their power over us, as if Christ dwelling in us is powerless to save us. We justify our faithlessness by exaggerating just how powerful evil is. We lose a sense of the reality of Christian living. It's a tailspin. But it doesn't have to be. Live in Him, in the transforming power of him. Root your confidence in faith and live in the knowledge of His love for you and for others.
I appreciate the post from Shepherd Press today. It gives some sound practical advice on how to communicate gracefully.
Once again, someone in your life has offended you. Your frustration boils over. How many more times will you have to put up with being offended? So, you take matters into your own hands and let the offender know how you feel.
You tell him just how annoyed and offended you are. You don’t care if he is your brother or your coworker, enough is enough. Afterwards, you think you feel vindicated, you think you feel better, you think you have stood up for your rights. But something is not right. You still feel edgy and angry.

One of the things that I have done as a stay-at-home daughter, is learn a little about business (and marketing, while helping my father who directs and controls online shopping with his Internet based and managed distribution company.
For us this has meant integrating the family business into our home-making and hospitality. How did we do that? Buy coupling two important business principles: Prosumerism and Retail Estate.
Prosumerism is the principle of being a producer and consumer at the same time.
Most people are consumers but are not producers. All of their money goes toward consumption.
While they may think that they are producing at their jobs, in actuality they are not. Instead they trade their time for money, bring the money home, spend it on consumer products, and when all is said and done all they have produced is a bag of trash to be hauled out to the street. There is nothing left over.
Saving is not producing. Consumers think that when they buy at a discount they are getting ahead by saving money. Are they? Where is the saved money? What they are actually doing is just spending. They are stretching their dollars as far as they will go, but there is still only one end result, spent money.
Consumer minded shoppers choose to let their time be consumed also. They clip and cut coupons & drive from store to store (at 2.89 a gallon) shopping sales. In the end they have less time to go along with their spent money. Consumer thinking spends money (and time).
By definition producers have time and/or money left over after time and money is invested in a project. The leftover time and/or money is invested back into the project and then produces more. See the cycle? Producer thinking invests money (and time).
So what is a Prosumer? Prosumers make money while they spend their consumer dollars.
Prosumerism is the answer for those on a tight budget that would like to make more money but haven't any investment capital. Prosumers spend wisely and differently. They get paid for buying smarter not cheaper.
This is where Retail Estate comes in. There are many things that we buy at various retail establishments. Whether we purchase items on sale or not, we still purchase them and store owners keep the difference between wholesale and retail. In other words, they profit.
When a prosumer invests in retail estate he converts expenses to income by keeping profits, similarly to the conventional business owner, which he used to leave behind at a retail establishment. The profit ends up in his own pocket, and the profits now stay in his household budget. How can this be done?
Let me show you one way we do it.
Around here many of us refer to Starbucks as Fourbucks. Why? Because that is what it costs for a cup of fluff-puff coffee at a Starbucks retail establishment. Yesterday, I opened a coffee shop right in our own kitchen. Mom cleverly named it Ourbucks. Why? From here on out, rather than spend four bucks at Starbucks, the buck stops at Ourbucks. First we have made ourselves the middlemen by buying coffee at wholesale from a manufacturer that pays us a rebate on the volume of product we buy. Then I use that coffee to make our fluff-puff drinks at home. We pay Ourbucks what we used to pay Starbucks and the retail profit stays in the family business.
But you're just paying yourself?!? Don't forget volume bonuses mentioned above. This is profit earned for consuming our own product line. And we're not limited to our own household of three coffee drinkers and one product, coffee.
A home-based business certainly has it beginnings in turning a profit from redirecting the family budget and expenditures. But it goes far beyond that allowing for income potential equivalent of a full time job or more. With companies willing to work with this type of direct distribution, now-a-days, you have the potential to distribute electricity, groceries, nutritional products, cosmetics, exercise group memberships, flooring, household appliances, insurance, beyond your own personal consumption, which ultimately means, no more living paycheck-to-paycheck.
A waaAAaay better cup!
When it comes to Starbuck vs. Ourbucks, rather than building the vision of the owners of Starbucks, who openly denounces the magnificent creations of God and God Himself, promoting false religions & sodomy on their cups... (Update: This is from the day when quotes on their cups where quite horrible. Now it take much less, in fact nothing, to upset 'Christians,' which is unfortunate)
We are not happy with Starbucks...nor espouse their vision.
...we are building our family's vision and future by gaining a greater hold on our finances giving us the options we'd not have other wise, hopefully to benefit future generations of God fearing coffee drinkers to come.

Wendy Larson, Certified Natural Health Professional on achieving homeostasis with Plexus products when dealing with an illness
Wendy Larson, Certified Natural Health Professional on achieving homeostasis with Plexus products when dealing with an illness
Personal Health Story: Ehrlichiosis (Lyme co-infection) causing preterm labor and delivery, septic shock. Survived. 9 years of chronic lyme realated: skin rashes, low blood pressure and body temp, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, poor sleep, brainfog, and more. Symptom free using Plexus after two years.
Tried a lot of different things and many worked for a little while but not long term.
Three ways to bring the body back to health when dealing with (chronic) illness:
- Reign in blood sugar. The body can't handle the highs and lows. Insulin and cortisol need to be balanced or else you'll have swings. Slim drink regulates hormones, which in turn allows adrenals to heal. Managing cortisol is a huge step toward reducing stress in the body. You do that through controlling blood sugars.
- Sugar Cravings. Slim reduces sugar cravings, desire for coffee. Caffiene causes stress on the body.
- Slim improves sleep.
- Cholesterol, blood pressure, and lipid levels: if they are not all in balance, that is an indication that there is something going on in the body.
- Chemical Stressors
- Emotional Stressors, Slim helps balance emotions.
Note: Chronic low temperature means that your body is stressed. Normal temperatures are necessary for the body to fight infection.
Heal the gut:
- Probio5 and BioCleanse. ProBio5 - Chronic digestive issues. Immunity is compromised if the gut is compromised making it difficult to fight off illness. Probio5 is a three pronged system. Healthy gut flora (bacteria), antifungal, and Enzymes.
- The gut is an ecosystem. It needs clean water (Our bodies recirculate whatever water there is available, scummy or clean), healthy flora (bacteria) or it will get over run, not function well and harbor germs bad bugs etc.
- Enzymes decrease as we age. Enzyme production can be compromised if we've had a gallbladder removed, if you have diabetes, liver problems. Enzymes help break down food and assist in assimilates your food better.
- BioCleanse and Probio5 work like a married couple. Enzymes need a good dose of magnesium in order to function properly. Signs of a magnesium deficiency: chronic headaches, migrains, sleeplessness, Restless leg syndrom, Irritable bowl syndrom (muscles spasms in the digestive tract), heart palpatations.
Note: If excess magnesium is not used; the body eliminates it.
Nutrients restored in body:
- X-Factor multi-vitamin. If you have candida over-growth, you can't assimilate nutrition properly and technically, you are nutritionally starved. Health then breaks down when our cells are starved of nutrients.
- Aloe in X-Factor: helps body absorb 300-400% more nutrients. Aloe helps us utilize slim, Probio5, and BioCleanse.
- B vitamins, great for the brain, for nerves, etc.
- No iron in X-Factor?, New Zealand Black Currant is rich in iron. Plant based iron.
- Aloe is a taxi driver. If a cell is deficient in one particular mineral or vitamin, aloe will deliver what is needed right to that cell.
Fast relief: If you have an auto-immune disorder you need to be on fast relief. Many auto-immune disorders are due to a lack of enzyme function. The serrapeptase and the bromaline break down proteins. Many infections are protein based. Severe joint pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis can be due to proteins escaping through a leaky gut, getting tucked away in tissues and joints. Fast relief enzymes find those proteins and break them down creating pain relief.
