Running on Faith, Prayers, and Determination
At GfreeDeliciously, it truly is my greatest heart’s desire to help others find encouragement and fulfillment, learn, grow, and embrace their unique self through a balance of healthy lifestyle concepts and faith-based living. I will teach you how to make easy, healthy meals and provide practical encouragement to nourish your body and soul.
As I’m writing this, it occurred to me that some of you might be wondering, ‘What’s up with calling the blog “Revelations” anyway? It’s sort of a funny name.’
I’d have to agree; it is kind of strange. But in many more ways, the name ‘Revelations’ seems very fitting for this blog, too, first because this is the place on the website where everything in my vision coincides. And then because I live and work in an area of Central Wisconsin known as the Holylands. So I guess it makes perfect sense to me.
Anyway, here is where all the blog parts come together. In these posts, I hope to inspire, encourage, and challenge folks to eat healthy while sharing what God has taught me, both spiritually and physically over the years, to reach a healthy balance of being gluten-free.
This is the historical timeline to my recipes and all the BIG ‘Aha Moments’ where I share my bright ideas and hope to share useful advice. It’s also where I’ll pass along some nifty tips and techniques from my personal experience of getting healthier, working on getting and staying in shape, and doing it in a faith-based way. Honestly, I can tell you that it’s always been about running on faith, prayers, and determination to guide me every day.
All in all, GfreeDeliciously is created to inspire your ‘GfreeWellness’ to get you feeling fit and healthy for life, all while enjoying the journey!

Serve up oohs and ahhs with this inspiring picnic, potluck, or easy weeknight pasta salad that’s great as an all-in-one meal or a side dish. But, of course, we’re talking about Lemon Fusilli Salad with Shrimp.

Never allow raw meat, including sausage and brats, to sit out at room temperature for more than two hours and only one hour if the air temperature is above 90°F. Bacteria multiply rapidly in unrefrigerated food. In addition, if left unrefrigerated, some organisms can create toxins that will survive the cooking process even if they cook to temperatures that kill the bacteria themselves.
