My friends are sharing this article the title makes me cringe, “10 Ways to A Healthier Husband.” The article itself has some sound advice but the tone is controlling. Ladies don’t fool yourself into thinking that you can make your husband healthier, fitter, better – any improvements he does are just that his. You can build him up or tear him down, for sure, but you are not his trainer, you are his wife, focus on how you can be a healthier wife and express your desires if you want him involved. That is, if you want to exercise together, say so! Say, “I want to exercise with you.” or “I want to go for a walk with you” or “I want to eat better” but don’t think you can nag your husband or micromanage him into a fitter man – you will both be miserable if that is your goal.

Just a quickie to relate an observation the husband and I had the other night while chatting- turns out since I have relinquished control (and, ya know, stopped being a horrible nagging shrew) he has become far more confident and competent in all areas of life including work. Pre-submission we were floating by, him only ever doing “just enough” because, well, he thought it was enough (we both did coming from where we did and all). But now everything has more than doubled for him- more money, better position, better work relations, etc. Coincidence? Nope. He actively started pushing for this, as he related to me, when he started to realize that he could.

African Americans are somehow longing for their true slave-masters, the Muslims, to take charge of them once more. It sounds insane, but they convert to Islam in droves in prisons across the country while in Islam the descendants of Africans in particular, are seen as permanent slaves. Even to this day blacks are referred to as “Abd” (slave) in the Arab world.
Its mind boggling why Islam is allowed in prisons where its being used to radicalize people.
Islam destroyed all of North Africa with forced conversions and the export slave trade of 140 million people for more than 14 centuries. Muslims are active slave owners even to this day across Africa. During the Arab slave trade the treatment of slaves were so bad they survived only 7 years in average. The offspring of Arab rape got killed to avoid a growing African birth rate and the dislike of children…

Do not cease praying for your children; God’s grace can touch a hardened heart. Commend your children to the Immaculate Heat of Mary. When parents pray rosary, at the end of each decade they should hold the rosary aloft and say to her, “With these beads bind my children to your immaculate Heart,” she will attend to their souls.

We’ve gone Paleo! I’m having lots of fun with it actually. Here are some recipes I’ve tried this week and my entire family enjoyed- including toddlers!
Coconut flour tortillas: not the easiest, I had trouble getting the pan at just the right temp and flipping at the right time but they were really good and folded nicely. Next time I would triple the recipe since one batch only makes about 3 small tortillas.
Kale Chips: Incredibly simple. I don’t know why I’ve never made these before.
And my very own recipe (inspired by this one) sweet potatoes fries:
- 4 large sweet potatoes washed, sliced but not peeled,
- place on baking sheet and season with: onion powder, chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, cinnamon, cumin, salt, pepper, red pepper (I never measure just sprinkle it on).
- Drizzle olive oil or coconut oil over potatoes and bake at 400 till tender
- Drizzle some pure maple syrup on top and enjoy.
