My name is Cathi, and I’m a Certified Holistic Nutrition Counselor. After dealing with illnesses, diseases, developmental delays and sicknesses in my children, as well as aches and pains in my Veteran husband, I decided to take my family’s health matters into my own hands. The Western medical system seemed to come to one dead end after another; ultimately leading me to believe that we simply had to accept the diagnoses that were laid out before us.

As a Christian, I prayed continually over these ailments and disorders, and the Lord kept whispering John 10:10 to me, and I pondered and prayed over it daily:

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

-John 10:10

After a while, I knew that sickness was NOT something that God ordained for my family – or for anyone, for that matter. His will is for us to live this life to the FULL! He wants us to enjoy living under His care and guidance. He wants us to have fun and be happy!

It’s difficult to live in abundance when you’re feeling sick all of the time, so I began to look toward alternative treatments for myself and my family. I didn’t know where to start, so I began on my kitchen floor, in a puddle of tears, and cried out to God for wisdom.

Over the next few years, I prayed James 1:5 over my family’s health.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

-James 1:5

The Lord brought me through a winding and exhausting journey of learning how to properly heal, nourish, and fuel the human body and mind. I was so intrigued by all of the healing powers of the foods that God created that I decided to become certified in Holistic Nutrition Counseling so that I could help others with different illnesses. Then, inspired by my husband’s military training and service injuries, I began to find a fascination with the created human body, in regards to muscles, joints, and bones. So, I will soon be offering Personal Training expertise to my clients as well! The next step in my learning is an intense course in Master Herbalism, which will even further my cabinet of healing knowledge so that my family, friends, and clients can have life, and have it abundantly!

  1. Hi Cathi,

    I, like many others, have just read some entries on your blog and I am completely inspired by your resilience and honesty about your experience as a military wife. I am a student at California State University Long Beach located in Southern California. I am currently taking a class in Child and Family Development based on family stress and coping. All semester we are learning about the different coping mechanisms families use to remain connected and resilient through adversity. I am conducting a project on the stresses of deployment and how families cope with all the aspects of deployment including the stresses it puts on the family dynamic and the stresses it puts on the marriage and in particular the emotional intimacy of the marriage. I have been researching helpful chat rooms, blogs, forums, etc. to ask some military spouses 3-4 short questions about their experience with deployment and the effects on the family dynamic and their emotional intimacy with their spouse. I came across your blog in a Google and the title alone completely hits the nail on the head since I am interesting the coping strategies used during this difficult time. I understand that life is busy and time is a precious commodity, but I would be honored if you were volunteer your responses for my assignment. I think you are an great example of resilience and your family’s coping techniques are ones that I as well as my fellow Child and Family Development students can learn from. If you are able to provide some information, again I would be greatly honored, feel free to e-mail me back and I would be happy to provide you with the questions I had regarding your situation. They are open ended questions about your experience so you would be able to put as much detail and thought into them as you saw fit. I hope that I am able to present your story to others and that you can once again touch the lives of those who are learning how to cope with life’s challenges and sustain the balance of our most important relationships. Thank you for your time.

  2. You just hit the nail with this one: ” I want to sit around and wallow in despair, but I can’t help but be excited about what God is going to do during this separation. He’s amazing, so I know that his plans are going to be equally as awesome” 😀
