* 38 Weeks Pregnant - Not on GAPS at all

Here I am at 38 weeks pregnant and I am not on GAPS, Feingold Diet, or even Gluten Free.  I have not had any pre-term contractions, as I had with all of my other pregnancies.  In fact, I have hardly had any pregnancy complaints at all.  Truly a miracle has taken place.  I expect to carry my baby to his due date.  I feel absolutely wonderful!  I can do anything.  I have no trouble getting in or out of bed.  I have no trouble getting down on the floor and back up to help my kids with anything they might need, like putting on their shoes or putting a puzzle together.  I feel so good, even at 38 weeks, that I even forget at times that I am expecting a baby so soon.  That IS amazing!

While I was so grateful to God for leading us to the GAPS diet, because I was finally able to DO SOMETHING to help my family feel better, I am even more grateful to have been miraculously healed by Jesus and set free from the bondage of having to DO SOMETHING to help my family feel better.  We are finally free, truly free, and this pregnancy has been the ultimate in evidence of the complete healing that we have received.  NOTHING is impossible for God!

Many of the later posts in this blog have transitioned to our healing, not due to the GAPS diet, but by faith in God, who is Mighty to Save!  I have also started a new blog to document my walk in faith with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  The address is

The address is 'I in Him and He in Me', but all lower case letters and no spaces, which makes it hard to read.

The idea for the address comes from 1 John 3:21-24, which says, "If our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from Him anything we ask because we obey His commands and do what pleases Him.  And these are His commands: to believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ and to love one another as He commanded us.  Those who obey His commands live in Him and He in them.  This is how we know that He lives in us, we know it by the Spirit He gave us."  (Written from memory, so you might want to look it up to be sure that I got it right)

Now, the only thing I have to DO to help my family feel better is to believe Jesus and love them as God commands me to do.  Amen and amen!

We Can Eat Anything

We can and do eat anything!  We went out to eat with the grandparents tonight to a place where the food was served buffet style or you could get Hibachi grilled on the spot after picking out the foods you wanted to cook.  It was pretty unhealthy, nasty stuff from a health food perspective, but we are happy to be free to share in fellowship with the ones we love.  My kids had never seen anything like it and were amazed at all of the choices.  The grandparents had fun seeing their reactions to everything.  Overall it was gross: too much fried foods, too much sugar, too much processed foods, unhealthy fats, table salt, etc., etc., but we had a great time, and I didn't have to cook or do any dishes.

But I do not need to fear, because it was not the GAPS diet that healed us; it was God who healed us!  The kingdom of God is not about food or drink, but about righteousness, and about peace and joy in the Holy Spirit!  The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in me!  He gives life to my mortal body!  He healed us!  God set us free from the bondage of having to follow a strict diet in order to be well.  Not only did He save us from our sin, He saved us from our sickness, too.  We are well because God is love, and Love heals!

I am walking in faith everyday and seeing miracles everyday, because God is good all the time, His love endures forever, His faithfulness continues through all generations, nothing is impossible for God, He rewards those who earnestly seek Him, and His WORD is TRUE!  I have come to a place where I believe His word over my past experiences.  His word trumps my experience.  According to our faith, it will be done to us.  Fear is the opposite of faith, and I have let go of fear and choose to walk in faith.

My other blog is about my current walk with the Lord.  He is amazing!  Check it out!

My children and I are all healed of multiple GAPS symptoms: anger, frustration, eczema, autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, anxiety, ADD, reactions to most foods and chemicals, and much more.  I am nearly 37 weeks pregnant with my sixth child and this is the first pregnancy without pre-term contractions or any of the pregnancy complaints that plagued my earlier pregnancies.  God is good.  I am truly healed!

It is Good News!  Jesus is Good News!  Seek Him!
