Wanted. It’s something I’ve had to get used to since being placed on the government’s Most Wanted list. On the run, with my family and Finn by my side, we now have to evade not only the Arvies, but teams of soldiers sent to find and capture me.

Little do they know, I’m battling my own demons. After the receiving large doses of mind-enhancing serum, a monster has been unleashed inside my mind. It promises death and destruction; its power, greater than anything I could imagine. Now, I’m too dangerous, and the lives of my loved ones depend on my separation from the group. I must leave and face the hostile world alone.

My name is Abigail Park. I will do whatever it takes to save the ones I love.

Mineral of the Week – Asthma and the link to Manganese

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

On Monday I mentioned that there is a link between a number of chronic diseases including Asthma and Manganese. Asthma can be a childhood condition that is hereditary or associated with allergies, that is grown out of by puberty. Or, later on in life as a result of work and lifestyle related ingestion of chemicals including smoking or nutritional deficiency. Here is more about the disease.

What is asthma?

The actual word asthma comes from the Greek azein meaning to breathe hard. It is an intermittent disease unlike chronic conditions such as cystic fibrosis, chronic bronchitis or emphysema.

The bronchial tubes in the lungs are made of muscle and a mucus membrane. During an asthma attack this mucus membrane becomes inflamed and swollen causing the muscles to contract and create spasms. Air movement is restricted and as it tries to escape from the bronchi it causes the wheezing which is…

Kate Erickson Joins Win’s women of wisdom

1: What is your deepest regret?

That I don’t have a written diary or memoirs from the many conversations I had with my grandparents about their life and our family history before they passed.

2: Please explain more what you do.

I am the “behind-the-scenes implementer” at EOFire, a 7-day a week podcast from John Lee Dumas where he interviews today’s most inspiring and successful entrepreneurs. John comes up with the big ideas, and I figure out how to make them happen. I also write our blog and host my own podcast, Kate’s Take (The EOFire audio blog), where I share the things that are working for us in our business and the things that aren’t working. Everything we do here at EOFire aims to inspire and motivate others to take their own entrepreneurial leap.

 

3: How people can get in contact with you?
4: What is your biggest life lesson?
Don’t let fear hold you back from living the life you want to live. I spent years of my life worrying about what other people thought about me, my decisions and the way I was living my life, and in doing so, I wasn’t creating the things that I wanted to see most in my life. I was scared of failing, scared of saying the wrong thing, and scared that no one would want to hear from me. Once I was able to embrace that fear and stop letting it hold me back, I started living a life true to my authentic self – one that I love so much and that gives me all the freedom in the world.
5: What is your biggest achievement?
I would say stepping on stage for the first time in 2015 to present to an audience. It’s something I NEVER would have thought I could do just 2 years ago, but I did it, and I feel like I did it well. That was a big breakthrough for me and a huge learning experience / growth point.
6: What is your favorite book?
Essentialism by Greg McKeown – amazing read about how to be most productive so that we begin to spend our time on the things that matter most to us.
7: If you could have anyone educate you who would it be?
Michael Jordan. I feel like he’d have a lot of great experience and advice to share around never giving up and always giving everything you do 110%.
8: What is your favorite podcast?
Probably Amy Porterfield’s Online Marketing Made Easy. Or The Moth. Totally different topics / categories, but both great podcasts. 😉
🙂 Kate

What NOT to say to a grieving family

What NOT to say to a grieving family

kathleenbduncan

Blue Ribbon School Award

When we see someone hurting, we all want to say something, anything, to make it better. But the truth is, you cannot make it better with your words. And some things can actually make a grieving parent feel worse. Only God can heal the brokenness felt by a parent who has buried their child.

If you do say one of these things, know that we will forgive you. We know you are trying to help and love us. We try to walk in grace and forgiveness. But if you can, take time think before you speak. And please try not say these things to a grieving mother or father.

I know what you’re going through.

Unless you have walked in their shoes, you cannot know all that another person is facing. You cannot know their fears, pain, and struggles.

Unless you have lost a child, you cannot know what a…

On Win’s Women of Wisdom today, Best-Selling Author, Win Kelly Charles welcomes Suzie Carr. Whether it’s writing about life and love, inspiring new authors, advocating for LGBT equality and animal welfare or blogging about community awareness, positive living, and taking action… Suzie remains passionate in her beliefs! She also believes in the power of community and fostering a welcoming place where everyone feels connected and their voices are equal, valued and appreciated. Bullying, bigotry and inequality are not welcomed, but open-mindedness always is. Suzie’s love for the written word started back when she was a child. She enjoyed visiting the library every Saturday to spend hours reading. Books quickly became a constant companion to her and remained as such throughout her childhood. Always in the creative mindset, she dreamed of a life where she would work by day and write books by night. Unfortunately, twelve hour work days left her no time or energy for learning how to craft a novel. So, off to college she went to pursue her passion for writing. College fed her hunger for the written word and Suzie devoured anything and everything written on the subject of novel writing while pursuing her degree in communications at Rhode Island College. Soon after graduating, The Fiche Room, a coming-of-age novel about two women falling in love, was born. Over the years The Fiche Room grew from its humble e-book origins to an Amazon Kindle best seller receiving glowing reviews. With nine bestsellers on Amazon Kindle, Suzie continues to write about the beauty of life and love. Her latest release, The Dance, is due out in January 2016. Suzie Carr believes strongly in giving back to the community. She donates a portion of book sale proceeds to the Hearts United for Animals and NOH8 Campaign.
