“Here, it is my duty to be as Christ in this world,
to do what He would do, to live as He would live,
to walk in love and meekness;
then would He be known, then would I have peace in death.”
–The Valley of Vision
This blog came out of a vision to reform the area of health food for the glory of Christ and as a means to give to those in need. I was so burdened with my conviction about food, but wasn’t sure how to go about sharing it with others. People would ask me all the time how I made certain foods or why I ate the way I ate, and every time I would try to explain. This blog is a result of so much prayer and putting a conviction of mine to action in order to spread it to others. I am so encouraged with all the feedback I’ve received since starting the blog last June. My greatest hope is that everyone who visits will see the beauty of God’s creation and praise Him for it. I want people to see that His creation was made for food and it is perfect. I also want Christians who visit to understand that it is our responsibility to take back the area of health food from the corrupt hands in which it currently rests. I may be one small piece in a larger effort to do so, but I take my role very seriously. I’m not a doctor or even a certified nutritionist, but I do know that when we return to the food that has yet to be tainted by man, we gain a health and vitality that I believe humans are naturally supposed to have.
The second part of the vision for this blog has yet to come to fruition, but it’s getting closer. The more people that know about the blog, the closer I get to making the announcement. And I am tickled by the thought of that day when I can announce it! Will you help me spread the word?
