Running on Faith, Prayers, and Determination
At GfreeDeliciously, my greatest heart’s desire is 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 wonder, ‘What’s up with calling the blog posts “Revelations” anyway? It’s a funny name.’
I’d have to agree; it is somewhat strange. Though in many more ways, it seems very fitting. The name ‘Revelations’ sums up so many of the posts here on the blog.
First, 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 all-in-all, the name Revelations makes perfect sense to me. Hopefully, now it also makes perfect sense to you.
In these posts, I hope to inspire, encourage, and challenge folks to eat healthy while sharing what God has taught me spiritually and physically over the years to reach a healthy balance of being gluten-free.
This is the historical timeline of my recipes and all the BIG ‘Aha Moments’ where I share my bright ideas and hope to share helpful 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 all according to the His plan 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 own “GfreeWellness” to get you feeling fit and healthy for life while enjoying the journey!
