It’s top 10 time, isn’t it? Perhaps that’s what prompted me to do a top 10 Really Nourish 2017 moments post, or perhaps it was something deeper…
I haven’t really spent a lot of time reflecting on this past year. My focus is on the great things coming up in the future. To me, 2017 was like a 365 day walk through a portal into a future that looks very different from the past. Really Nourish is set to accelerate now. From where I stand, 2018 and beyond looks big and bold, lit and amplified, all for the glory of a great God!
Nonetheless, a spot of reflection on the past year can help reveal some milestones that point to the promise of the future ahead.
That said, here are the top 10 Really Nourish 2017 Moments:
10: I wrote Securing Our Birthright. I actually finished a full manuscript for a book. This was definitely inspired by God because it happened so fast and so fluently. It brings together the steps I took and continue to take toward first getting into and then maintaining excellent health, what I learned in the natural about why the steps I took worked, and an in-depth study of what the word of God has to say about it all.

9: I got pregnant with my 3rd child. This is more significant than it sounds. It happened
just over a year after I donated a kidney and two years into my new Really Nourish Food Life. Just like with the transplant, the pregnancy provided more opportunities than usual to get my stats – weight, blood pressure and blood sugar.

8: Really Nourish presented its first webinar! I’m so grateful to my Pastor and my church, Guiaco Pentecostal Church in Sangre Grande, Trinidad, for being so supportive. My wifi at home was down so they allowed me to conduct the webinar from church on a Thursday morning. To God be the glory! Also, again, and as always, much gratitude is due to Cathy Fyock who helped me make this happen. I look forward to doing much more work with her! Click here to see the replay.
7: My prayer for mentors was finally answered with not one, not two, but FOUR phenomenal women who have become so valuable to me. This is my chance to honor them all.
- Reverend Lilleth Harper, wife of Bishop Warren Harper of Guiaco Pentecostal Church. She is the Missions Director and not only has she helped bring out and nurture the evangelist in me, but she pushes me to aspire for greater excellence in all that I do, to see knowledge and be a helper to my husband from a position of strength.
- Sister Natasha Passie, bible school intern. She is the discipleship teacher at Guiaco Pentecostal Church. Natasha took me under her wing and has taught me so much more about God’s word in practical application in my life. She has also been a source of great support in times of trial. Particularly in times when God has shown me plans and I couldn’t see means to accomplish them, she was there with both prayer and help! She embodies true agape like very few others I’ve met in my life.
- Sister Cathy Fyock, the Business Book Strategist. After watching a webinar she conducted on the Author Learning Center website, I took advantage of a free strategy session she offered. I was facing some difficult circumstances at the time. She has taught me so much so far about marketing myself and my book by faith. What she has given me already has been of such amazing value, and I’m already grateful for the wisdom she will share with me going forward. She’s selfless and beautiful and blessed and I love her. Join her mailing list today!
- Sister Jenn Baxter, Live a F.A.S.T. Life. Sister Cathy introduced us electronically recently. Although we’ve only known each other for a little over a month, she is much further along than I am with her movement. She delivers high value content to a well populated mailing list (you should join today) and her book just dropped on Amazon.com (you should buy it). I’m already learning so much from her! I look forward to working with her and learning much more in the coming years.
Thanks God for mentors! Thanks to each of these amazing women for what they have contributed to my life and my work!

4: I finally zeroed in on the perfect tagline for Really Nourish: Christian Food Activism. Yes, it’s a thing, because through me, God made it a thing. See my post about that here.

1: I took some very important spiritual steps this year. In April, I finally got water baptized at Manzanilla Beach. In November, I embarked upon the Evangelism Explosion and Pre-Field Missions training programs. These both occurred in spite of great difficulty, as I deepen my commitment to God’s Kingdom Business.
It is with this commitment in my heart that I step boldly into 2018 ready to give birth both physically and spiritually to all of what the Lord has revealed to me as my purpose. Thank you for being a part of the top 10 Really Nourish moments of 2017! To my husband and my children, I thank you so much for being my motivation and support on this journey. To my church, Guiaco Pentecostal, I thank you for the spiritual and physical food and support that you have lavished upon my family. There should be more churches like this in the world! To my readers, I thank you for taking the time to read my posts, to like, to comment and to share. I look forward to huge growth for 2018 and beyond with you!
