    The Vegan Lifestyle w/ Brown Vegan

    in Vegetarian

    I am excited to have Monique from Brown Vegan coming on the show. Even though I became a vegetarian in 2013, I am now in a phase where I want to transition to becoming a vegan. Therefore, I wanted Monique to come on the show and share her journey. I found Monique on YouTube I believe last year. Her videos are great especially for those who are struggling with giving up certain foods where they can substitute them with other plant based options. I also enjoy the fact that she has a family which is helpful for those with children and/or a spouse. Yes, children can be vegan too! Of course I would suggest checking with a pediatrician and/or nutritionist as well, especially one who will be encouraging of this lifestyle with children (many of them promote meat and dairy diets). 


    The Bible speaks on how our bodies are the temples. I believe this also includes what we put inside of it. I do not believe that we should just put anything in our bodies, but to be conscious of what we are putting in it. This is not a show to force veganism down anyone's throats, but based on how the world is going, I strongly believe we should try to avoid and/or limit a lot of the foods we are used to eating.


    I hope this show will encourage those who are considering a vegan lifestyle or those who have already begun to embark on this journey. I am looking forward to learning about more options and ideas that Monique has. She has a lot of resources on her website as well, which I will place below.


    3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."

    Plant Roles in the Web of Life

    in Spirituality

    Join Sharon Rainbow Eagle Bar-Or and Jim Graywolf - Eaglewolf - on Healing Mirror Holders Radio for a powerful webcast on Sunday, June 7th at 1 PM MST, 3 PM EST, 8 PM London and 10 PM Israel time.  


    We read a lot about the destruction of plants - trees, grasses, crops, etal - around the world. Why is this and how do we learn to honor the plant nations again? Native Americans speak of all things in nature as being a ‘people’ - a nation. This is a matter of respect and allows for understanding how important each natural element is to the survival of all.


    There are many stories about trees and plants around the world shared by indigenous people. They show the value people living close to the Earth place on plants. And many statements of the power of plants, such as this one: "The trees are great teachers. The trees are great listeners. That is why we should meditate in their presence. The Great Spirit is in every rock, every animal, every human being and in every tree. The Great Spirit has been in some trees for hundreds of years. Therefore, the trees have witnessed and heard much. The trees are the Elders of the Elders. Their spirits are strong and very healing."  ~ Mary Hayes, Clayoqout


    Come join as we share some stories from the old ones and some ways plants give us healing medicine. And we will explore together some steps we need to take as one to again honor our plant relatives.


    The talking stick is now YOURS! Come join us and share your thoughts - or decide to just listen. Hit the link below just before show time.

    Chris Carley - Home Based Business...


    You can learn more about Chris Carley on her website www.chris-carley.com and you can hear more on The Building Fortunes Radio show  www.buildingfortunesradio.com. Your host  for Building Fortunes Radio Network is Peter Mingils with PM Marketing - Networkleads.


    Chris Carley has written an inspirational story about her experiences in her Network Marketing Business. You will enjoy reading through "The Millionaire Within Us." You can find it on www.chris-carley.com


    Chris Carley failed in MLM a few of times before she started seeing the results of her hard work really pay off. What made it tougher was that for a long time many people did not believe in her ability to make it work. Some people told her she was working for a pyramid, some said it was a scam. She knew what she was doing was right. And with the help of mentors like Donald Trump, Jim Rohn, and Mark Hughes (founder of Herbalife), Chris worked through her own negative thoughts and low self-esteem.  


    "The Millionaire Within Us" is her story of how she did it and can serve as a motivational blue print for others to follow.
