Green Detox Smoothie

Here is a detox smoothie that will get your system back in shape. The pear and the apple add sweetness and helps balance the grassy taste of the kale. Enjoy!

Green Detox Smoothie

  • 1 cup kale
  • 1 pear peeled and cored
  • 1 apple peeled and cored
  • 1 slice of lemon
  • 1/4 inch piece or ginger
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Thin with a little water if needed.

Note: One fruit may be exchanged for one of your liking. I substituted the pear with beet, and it was still very delicious!

4 Steps to Finding Your Life's Purpose


1.Take out a blank sheet of paper or open up a word processor where you can type (I prefer the latter because it’s faster).

2.Write at the top, “What is my true purpose in life?”

3.Write an answer (any answer) that pops into your head. It doesn’t have to be a complete sentence. A short phrase is fine.

4.Repeat step 3 until you write the answer that makes you cry.

Dead-beat dads!

Now I usually refrain from discussing dead-beat fathers because I have not had the experience; but because today is Father's Day I was wondering just how many men who have planted seeds but aren't watering them, are sitting at home wondering why they have not received a card or a phone call. Or maybe they really don't care? Just my thoughts! 

Happy Father's Day!!!

Father's Day is a day when we should honor and celebrate all the men who have stepped up to the plate and have taken responsibility; not just for their own children, but also for being great role models for the children they encounter or inspire. On this day, I am thankful to ALL the men who have shown me what a real father should be. Thank you to my dad (Matthew) my grandfathers (William and L.V.) and my grandfather-figure (General). I love and miss you all, but I know you are having a great day in heaven with our heavenly Father!
