If you know me, you know I am passionate about natural living and holistic wellness. I have been reading self-help and informational texts my entire life. It started in my early 20s with the First For Women Magazine. I developed a thirst for knowledge on the topics of holistic health and wellness, clean beauty, whole nutrition, and natural living. Since then, I have continued my education through many different types of media.
After reading multiple books and blog posts on these topics, I made the plunge and started formal learning. Growing in herbalism is truly a journey. You will NEVER know everything by simply reading a few blog posts, books, taking just one class, or completing a program. Growing in herbalism involves true immersion, getting to know the plants on a personal level, and understanding what gifts they have to offer.

What is Herbalism?
Herbalism is of the heart and cultivated over a lifespan. It’s embracing the truth that we are one with the plants and the Earth. We have a symbiotic relationship with all living things, especially plants. Some of the same awesome properties that sustain our green world, also sustain us. For as God created the Heavens and Earth, He also created us, from the dust of Earth.
The Lord God formed the man of dust form the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.Genesis 2:7
By believing in this truth, it only seems natural to embrace the wonderful home we call Earth and take up all the offerings He has provided for us. I have discovered some truly amazing constituents, properties, and actions that plants have and how they can support our fearfully and wonderfully made bodies in maintaining balance and wellness.
“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.”Genesis 1:29
I will continue on this journey for all my days to follow. For one who thirsts for knowledge never stops learning. There is still so much God has to offer and it excites me that God is rooted in my herbal journey.
The Gift of Knowledge- to Share With You
As an aspiring Christian herbalist focusing on holistic Health and Wellness, I am also being called to share my knowledge with you, your families, and the community. God has gifted me with the ability to teach, lead, guide, and direct. I have embraced that gift for the last 33 years as a teacher in a public school system. Now, I am extending that gift out to YOU and my community. This is something that I have been dreaming about for quite some time. I have plans to do just that!
This year, in 2021, I am welcoming you into my life, home, and on my homestead to share a cup of herbal tea, take you on plant walks, make herbal preparations, and share amazing information about holistic health and wellness. Through this invitation, I hope to encourage you to live a simple, wholesome & favored lifestyle as God intended. 🙂
I am so excited to have you along with me on my journey!
Stay tuned for exciting things to come!!!!! <3
