Happy Anniversary to us! We’re celebrating 4 years of doing life together as we walk, one little step at a time, on the path of Health and Well-Being!
Thank you for spending some of your precious time with me each week! I always want to add value to your life. But I have to admit that writing and posting each week has been a struggle for me. I have a love – hate relationship with technology. There are some days that I would rather clean the bathroom than sit down and write. But this old brain needs the challenge of learning something new and I’m not a quitter.
This writing is also an act of obedience. God has challenged me to reach out beyond my circle of friends. For a girl who grew up on a hobby farm in Northern Ontario, Canada it’s really cool to have readers from all over the world. The Internet is truly a remarkable tool.
Just like you, I have real life battles and big life-changing events. In these last four years, I’ve written about them as part of my blog because they impact how I do life. You can check these events in the Personal Stories and Struggles categories on the Main Menu.
When my brother in law Barry passed away unexpectedly from a blood clot it was unbelievable and didn’t make any sense. I shared how I learned to watch for God’s hand at work and trust Him when things were really hard
I became an empty nester when my daughter Katie moved to start her career at Galilean Bible Camp. This Momma had to let her last little chickie leave the nest. It was harder than I expected.
One of my big dreams came true when we purchased a cozy little cottage on St. Joseph’s Island. The beauty of God’s creation calms my mind and spirit. The simplicity of life without T.V. and limited Internet is refreshing. Our little Lake House relaxes me and I get restored.
Most of you know about my sadness as my best friend Gwen was hospitalized and within 21 days she passed away. You read about my thoughts, fears and the heartache of losing my best friend. I miss her so much. (Don’t take your friends for granted!)
Some of you may know that my first grandchild, Alice was born December 8th, 2018 to our son Dan and his lovely wife Charity. Being a Grammie is such a fun stage of life! I am embracing this new role and have lots of plans!
Like all good bloggers, I’ve listened to my readers and made some changes. Instead of a structured program and a mountain climbing theme I changed it to just walking together on the path of Health and Well-being.
No matter where you are on your health journey we can take little steps together.
My hope and prayer are that Little Steps to Health encourages each of you as we walk together. I want to provide you with good research that is relevant to our struggles. I know your struggles because they are mine too. I am such a foodie!
Together we’ve learned that real life is about imperfect progress. We have a mix of good days when most choices are healthy and bad days when there are more poor choices. We’ve learned that a poor choice doesn’t mean the whole day is a write-off! Instead we make a quick U-turn and make the next choice a good one.
I truly believe that every little step does make a difference. That’s what works for me and I know it can for you too!
Discouragement can creep up on us and that is why we have this one main Bible verse. “And let us not get tired of doing what is right, for after a while we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t get discouraged and give up”. Galatians 6:9 New Living Translation
It will be interesting to see what the next year holds for us and our busy lives. I’ll keep showing up once a week to encourage you as together we take one little step to health.
