I am not a doctor, none of the information on any of these pages pertaining to the Ketogenic Diet or Adrenal Fatigue should be considered medical advice and should not replace the care of your personal physician. I am simply eager to share the information I have learned while on my own journey to health. Before you embark on this journey, please consult with your physician.

When most of my friends were gathered around the TV after dinner, we gathered in the living room – each with a quiet toy – eagerly anticipating the adventure that awaited us!

Would it be Jonathan and Rosalind Goforth fleeing across China during the during the Boxer Rebellion? George Mueller seeing miracle after miracle in his orphanage?

Gladys Alyward riding the Trans-Siberian Railroad and overcoming every obstacle thrown at her? Perhaps it was the man who carried the gospel on foot over all of Ex-Yugoslavia? Or Praying Hyde who prayed so hard for the unsaved people of India that his heart literally moved to the other side of his chest?

If you're looking for gifts that promote a missional mindset and lifestyle, here are 50+ gift ideas and resources that teach missions. #alittlerandr #missions #missional #giftideas

While our friends had fake cartoon heroes or worshiped secular artists and actors, we had heroes of the faith who molded our dreams and aspirations to do more than seek fame and fortune, or to simply have a “good life”.

For us there was always more.

It is impossible to escape the continual barrage of what this or that actor, performer, or celebrity has done lately (and 99% of the time it is illegal, immoral, or uncouth) – and you can literally hear the collective gasp of parents everywhere as they vow to never again let their child watch, listen or follow that person.

My question is: should we let them in the first place? Why not surround them with true heroes who have or are laying up real treasure in heaven, who have a call of God to fulfill the Great Commission and display true godly character, faith and virtue!

  1. Thank you so so much for taking the time to encourage us and get us thinking outside of habits we have. I’m really encouraged, and will definitely be looking into the resources and information you have shared.

  2. Good morning Rosiland!!! I’m very excited to see your list of resources…it allowed me to open up my tunnel vision to see such need that is out there to help spread God’s Word. I have had the privilege to volunteer a 4 hour shift at a Samaritans Purse distribution facility….it was an absolutely thrill for my heart….very humbling to see the gift boxes in vast supply and know that its still not reaching every needy child. I would recommend volunteering for this mission if you ever get the opportunity!! You will not come home the same!! I am awaiting to see if I will be blessed enough to go back this year!! Have a blessed day and thank you for putting Godly info out there!!

    1. Oh I am so glad you mentioned Samaritan’s Purse! I helped deliver shoe boxes both here in Croatia and Bosnia. Like you said, it was life-changing! I can’t wait to share a few posts about OCC in a couple of months.

  3. I saw so many familiar names here! 🙂 <3 Eric Liddell, Gladys Aylward, and tons of mission outreach organizations that we love to stay connected with and support. Thank you for this! It makes me really grateful that my parents did give us such a wonderful appreciation for missions.
