“If you don’t take care of your body, where are you supposed to live?”
A Brand New Class!
After two years of growing and learning in practice as a Naturopath Doctor (health and wellness coach), Kim has revamped her class. We’re seeing God do amazing things in the lives of so many! There are simple foundations we all need to understand and there are fundamental things about how our bodies were designed that we should all know. This class is like getting six hours of private consultation/health coaching for the price of one. If you end up wanting more so you can dig deeper into the root cause behind what might ail you, you will have saved a considerable amount of your time and resources learning how to improve on the deepest levels. Addressing foundations alone is often all that is needed. So we’ve encapsulated the foundations of Kim’s Naturopathic education and practice into a day of intense learning, seeing, tasting, and doing. Participants walk away equipped with the knowledge to build ultimate and abundant wellness for themselves and their loved ones.
Register: Pre-register for $75 each. $90 at the door. Included in the day, will be an abundant array of foods and drinks to sample. A new book available for purchase.
Join us for a wonderful packed day of learning which will equip and empower you to “be your own doctor”.
You will be learning how to:
-Understand the physiology of your body and how to support and take care of it for strength and wellness.
-Make your kitchen your hospital (if you let “food be your medicine and medicine be your food” it will become just that)
-Develop lifestyle and emotional tools vital to whole health wellness
-Understand how your body works. It is complex and interconnected, if you understand this caring for it becomes a no-brainer
-Lose weight and keep it off. For real. No gimmicks. No powder or pill. Just lifestyle and root cause support!
-How to care for yourself and others with powerful strategies
-Understand how the body is designed and what it is trying to do. Work with it to heal and thrive instead of stuffing symptoms and making them extreme.
-Transform meals into medicinal nutrient dense super-food body and energy building deliciousness.
In the Greek the word “doctor” means teacher. That is what Kim loves to do. Teach. Those who have invested in and taught her have changed and blessed her life and she loves blessing others with the truths about bodies, health, and wellness so that God’s people can rise up and serve Him in all the health and strength they were designed to enjoy!
February was a month of many seasons we had some beautiful warm and sunny days and lots of rainy or cold cloudy days. On a cold, rainy day at around seven o’clock pm, we got a call that we needed to go check on some of the cows at one of the rental farms. So, several of the team loaded up and headed out into the foggy night in our good old farm truck. Once we got to the property, we switched it into four-wheel drive and went off-road. The truck tires are “old” and “smooth”, almost immediately the truck started to slide back and forth as we slowly moved forward along the little dirt (mud) road between two cattle fences. Several times the truck almost slammed into the fence posts along the way. With the gate in sight the truck mugged to a halt it was inches from the fence on one side and inches deep in mud. I climbed out opened the gate and said a prayer for safety. After a little situating the truck roared up out of the muddy road, through the gate and into the field. We all breathed a sigh of relief and laden with hay and supplements proceeded to treat the cows. We were all grateful to get home safely and out of the muggy rain!
We had our Annual Farm and Family planning meeting in the end of January. It is always a great time of sharing and reviewing. We are hoping that we can implement some of the new things discussed and praying for a fruitful 2019!
One day Bill was working with his big brother Bob at a rental farm. They had been moving the cows into their field and finally had finished. They now needed to pump water out of a pond into a big yellow tank on a trailer. So bill got on the trailer and had to hold the hose that was coming from the pump while Bob pumped. There was a smaller trough next to it, so when he was done filling up the yellow tank, he moved the hose to the small trough but the hose couldn’t reach far enough. So Bill moved one step more only to slip and fall head first. Thankfully his boot got snagged on a nail and he was dangling in the air of the side of the trailer. Bob came over and un-snagged him and set him on the ground and they got in the truck and went to their house.

Continued from part one …Someone stepped out in front of the barn, “there’s a cow emergency” he shouted again. The person spun around and ran behind the barn. Knowing help was on the way Edmund made a smooth but speedy U-turn and sped back the way he had come. When he got back to the scene, the cow looked the same.
He ran to where she was lying and was soon joined by Eric who had followed in the truck. Together they began pushing and pulling trying to get her out of the ditch. After some time and with the help of the tractor the cow slid up and out of the muddy rivet. As soon as the cow was on level ground again, Eric pushed her up on her right side without difficulty. The cow looked dazed for a few seconds, but then began looking around, it will get better soon thought Edmund! “well” said Eric, “that was a close one! She would’ve been a goner if we hadn’t of got her in time.” “no Kidding” agreed Edmond as he walked back to the tractor and got on it, “that would’ve been a bad loss”! “yeah” replied Eric, heading for his truck. “well see ya later, I’m back to work.” “alright, same here” Said Edmund, he cranked up the good old tractor and rumbled off to finish his chores.
The cow was soon on her own four feet again and in a few days was none the worse for her near-death experience!
John lending a hand with the chores.
Good moooorning from Swiss the cow, she is on the wrong side of the fence. 😉
Our family was blessed with some time away to the OBX!

Josh and Maddie are excited parents and we are all thrilled grandparents, uncles, and aunties. We are so grateful for a healthy safe birth and are enjoying this adorable little bundle of joy!
Below is the first part of a true story on the farm written by one of the farm boys:
EMERGENCY ON THE FARM!
One muddy, rainy winter morning, a tractor swayed through the field with two great bales of hay on it, the driver was a boy of about fourteen years of age, his name was Edmund. He was on the way to feed the last batch of family milk cows. The mud made it difficult to drive, so taking it slowly, he plowed on through the mud and rain. It took some time to get there going so slowly, but at last the cow field came in sight. As the tractor rumbled up to the fence, Edmund saw something that looked out of the ordinary… he strained his eyes to see better, then he realized that it was a cow lying on its back slightly stuck in a low part of the field. He sat up in the seat and slowed the tractor to a crawl. He detected a slight movement, the only sign of life. He needed to act quickly as he thought: “The cow may not have much longer to live!” Edmund knew the cow was too massive for him to pull out alone. So, thinking fast, he turned the tractor and headed down the narrow driveway to where the cows were milked and where he knew he could find help! As he swung onto the driveway, he jerked the throttle back setting the tractor in full tilt. The rain stung his eyes and face, it whipped up around the wheels sending a spray of water wildly up in Ed’s face. As he drove into sight of the barn he began honking the tractor horn and yelling “there’s a cow about to die”!… Stay tuned for part 2!
