Why Life With Angel?
My mission is to inspire and educate persons (particularly women) toward beauty, health, and sanity, even as I personally endeavor to grow in these areas. Why beauty, health, and sanity, and what do these values mean to me?
Beauty is a word I am passionate about. I believe that God is the creator of true beauty; He is beautiful. Beauty can be found everywhere, if we only open up our eyes. Nature screams of beauty. I am sitting outside on my covered porch as I type this paragraph. And I can’t help but gaze upon the setting sun and the billowing clouds in the sky. I hear the crickets chirping and insects and birds singing out their tunes. I see flowers and trees, and I am in awe. The simple things in life are often the most beautiful, and I look forward to sharing some of these simple insights with my readers.
I see beauty in circumstances. One of my favorite passages in the Bible describes how God creates beauty out of ashes (see Isaiah 61:3)! In my personal journey, I walked through my own valley of the shadow of death a few years ago. In my lowest time, I cried out to God and asked him to truly be my everything. God has redeemed my life from the pit and given me a new song! Now my life is truly beautiful, wonderful, and all my dreams are blossoming before my eyes. I am a living proof that beauty can come from all sorts of pain, heartache, devastation, and disappointment. So beauty, to me, is a part of each of our life stories. And I will share beautiful stories on my blog.
Beauty is what I love to behold! And I love to present myself with beauty. It’s a part of who I am, and many of you have this in common with me. Nothing is wrong with surface beauty, so long as it stems from within. I am passionate about becoming the most beautiful person I can—inside and out—and I believe that is a God-given desire I share with many of you. I am going to write articles about achieving outward beauty in safe ways.
One reason I have chosen to endorse Beautycounter cosmetics, skin and body care, and baby care, is because they share two of my highest values: beauty and health! This company is dedicated to educating and empowering consumers to learn how what we put on our bodies is just as important as what we consume. Our skin is the largest organ of our body, and every time we apply makeup, lotion, shampoo, hand soap, etc., we are either harming or helping our health. I am passionate about helping my readers learn about ingredients to avoid, why to avoid them, and why I believe Beautycounter brand is the best of both worlds: effectiveness combined with safety.
I am also passionate about educating you on other components of physical health. In my own personal journey, I used to battle with depression, ADHD, insomnia, and endometriosis. I will be writing about what I have learned in my personal journey toward physical health and ways to naturally overcome labels some of you have spent years of your life under. Some of these natural tools that have helped make me strong and healthy include essential oils, chiropractic care, nutritional choices, high intensity workouts, and proper supplementation. You were created by God to reflect his image, and you no longer need to let labels or old patterns hold you back from your God-given destiny.
Other components of health include social health, marital health, financial health, mental health, spiritual health, and emotional health. From time to time, I will address these issues, also. A truly healthy person is well-rounded and seeking optimal health from every angle.
We all need a bit of comic relief in our lives! What better way to relax and smile than to see two precious little babies!!! I suppose I may be just a tiny bit biased, (wink wink), but my boys make me smile like none other. I will be posting cute photos of them as I describe some of their milestones. I also will talk as one mom to another about lessons I am learning as I navigate through this motherhood experience with the best of them—all the while holding onto my sanity for dear life!
Life With Angel
Life with Angel is full of routines and adventures, dirty diapers and road trips (though not so often anymore). Life with Angel is all about figuring out how to combine beauty, health, and sanity into one big bundle of happy and abundant living. See, I believe that when we are living our God-given story, we will become the happiest persons on earth and will be like a city on a hill—shining our lights brightly to a world in need of beauty, health, and sanity.
