God's Grace and FAVOR!

Come listen to what Joseph Prince has to share..

Wear Your Blessings Well

Again, Joel shares a powerful message. YOU need to hear this! It will set you FREE!

The Goodness of God

Do YOU recognize the Goodness of God?


Treat Every Person like a Gatekeeper
You never know who God has ordained to be a gatekeeper in your life. A gatekeeper is someone God has ordained to open a door for you and is linked to your divine destiny to introduce you to someone, to put in a good word or give you wisdom or advice that will thrust you forward. That's why it's important to treat everyone with respect.

One test of our maturity is to see how we will treat people regardless of rank or influence. Jesus said in Matthew 25:40," Whatever you do for the least of these, you do for Me." When you take time to help others, really, you're helping yourself because every seed you sow, you're going to reap a harvest. Every good deed you do, every time you go out of your way to make someone feel special, God sees it. He will make sure the right people come across your path. As you treat everyone in your life as a gatekeeper, God will make sure the right doors open, the right opportunities come your way, and you will walk in favor, promotion and increase. You will walk in your God-given destiny.

Joel shares a message about gatekeepers in our lives...Enjoy!

Unprecedented Favor

Joel always has a message of hope.  Enjoy! : )

Without Limitations, What Would Your Beautiful Life Look Like?


Available in the RFR Amazon Store, click HERE!
    Have you lost touch with the woman you want to be? When you look in the mirror, do you see your authentic self?
     Perhaps the pursuit of success and physical beauty hasn’t produced the rewards you’ve yearned for. In your 20s and 30s, you may have been caught up in your “getting years”—focused on getting a career, a husband, a home, and children. After years of sacrifice and goal-oriented living, you may realize that although you might have wanted everything you have . . . you don’t have everything you want. Perhaps you’ve put your dreams aside and have lost touch with what makes you uniquely gorgeous.

     Are you ready to finally create your ultimate life and look? You don’t need a makeover . . . you need a transformation!

     The Beauty Blueprint is a powerful and practical guide that will help you rediscover who you are from the inside out and reclaim the essence of what makes you beautiful. It’s not just about changing your wardrobe, your hair, or your cosmetics; it’s about embracing your true beauty and living authentically. Celebrity makeup artist and life coach Michelle Phillips reveals why looking good is merely a by-product of feeling great . . . and shows you how to do just that!

Born into the entertainment industry, Michelle Phillips's earliest dream was to be behind the camera as a makeup artist. She eventually achieved that dream; and over the years has worked with major networks and stars of the film, TV, and music industry. Michelle eventually moved in front of the camera, hosting beauty and style segments and becoming a well-known television personality on stations across the U.S.

"Equipped With Strength"

"It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect."  Psalm 18:32

Stop saying you are weak!  Stop saying that you can't do it- that you are just too weak and don't have the strength!  "Let the weak say, I am strong; strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might." (Joel 3:10; Ephesians 6:10)  Yes, in and of yourself you are weak and can do nothing, but as a born again child of God you are no longer too weak to do any task that He sets before you.  You are no longer too weak to stand before the enemy.  Why?  Because He "girdeth" you with strength.  (Translated- He equips you with strength.)  He equips you with the strength that you need to "run through a troop", to "stand and face your Goliath"; to "preach the gospel", to "lay aside every weight of sin that would beset you".  This means that you can now do "all things through Christ which strengthens you". 

We have been equipped with everything we need to live victoriously- including strength.  The strength that He has equipped us with is His very own strength.  It is the same strength that was in Jesus when He stood against the devil's temptations in the wilderness; when He went about doing good; when He was daily confronted by His accusers; when He humbled Himself in Gethsemane and surrendered to the will of the Father.  It is the same strength that caused Him to endure the shame and the pain in order to pay the price for our sins on the cross. 

We do not have to cave in to weakness because not only is His strength available to us, it is part of what He has equipped us with in order to live the life that He has called us to live.  Do we have moments when we feel weak?  Yes, we do.  But in those times we can't give into the weakness and just stop or give up.  We have to look to the One who "infuses" us with His strength and get our strength renewed.  "I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency]." (Philippians 4:13- Amplified Bible)  And when we go to Him for renewed strength, He promises us that we will receive it.  "For my strength is made perfect in weakness." (2 Corinthians 12:9)

If this describes you this morning, you do not have to be weak, the Lord has equipped you with His strength.  And you won't be weak if you will "put on" the strength that He has equipped you with.

Have a great day.  We have been equipped with the Lord's strength so we aren't weaklings.

Give Yourself a Rest!!

Restful days are goooood for the soul!
Your soul is your mind, will and emotions...

Give your mind a rest..
Focus on your will to succeed, not just survive!
Make your emotions line up with your purpose!

Soothe the inner YOU with positive imaginings
Instead of trying to soothe yourself by eating things that no longer serve you...
Junk foods....extra food....all those things served their purpose at the time...
You didn't know anything else to do...

But you are a different person a different place...a different a different time!

Today, I challenge you to relax...
Let your new raw lifestyle unfold...  it will... really...
When old thinking comes...and it will....
Remind are a new person today!!
Think like the NEW person you are!!
Yesterday's ways won't work for bringing about positive, lasting, radical change today!!

I suggest clicking on one or more videos at once...for a very calming effect!

JOYRIDING!!! Can't Wipe the SMILE Off my Face!! : )

Today I test drove my DREAM CAR!!
It is a little KANDI Electric Car.....

I had fun with my hair blowing in the breeze as I was speeding along at 25 miles an hour!!
These cars are now only for in town driving....
but as soon as Congress passes a bill, they will be highway legal.

Funny thing is when you turn the key it is silent...
when you touch the gas pedal it is a little whizzing sound...
when you touch the brake and come to a stop....quiet silence...

It's stats are:
61.5 "  height
60.9 "  width
103.6 length
1609  lbs.
60 miles per charge
6-7 hours to charge
Air Conditioning
Power Windows
Yada Yada Yada...
Eligible for a tax credit of 50-60% of purchase price

A girl can dream....and I sure can DREAM!!!
Giggle with me and believe with me!!!
It's not a family car, obviously,
but it would be fun for a 2nd car and great for running errands around town...
and boy does it turn heads!!!   There are only 4 of these cars in our town!
And 3 of them are at the Tool Time with Tim.  Yes, that is really the name of the shop and owner!!
I want to see one of these in my driveway!!

It will only need a little garage!
Oh, by the way, I do want the hardtop...the wind messes up my hair!!  : )

Average Joe on the Raw

Check this out!!  A new Raw Film is coming your way soon!  : )

AVERAGE JOE ON THE RAW is the inspirational story of my friend Seth's journey into the deeps of his true self. Here is the synopsis in Seth's words:

"At 30 years old, I looked in the mirror and saw complacency. I saw a man settling into normalcy, settling into being average. At first glance, my initial thought was to just accept it. “it’s just part of the process, just part of aging and life. Get over it.”
So, at a crossroads in my life, I could just fall in line with the rest of the people on the assembly line of commonplace. Just waiting in line to see which disease will be handed to me, and which medications modern medicine will enslave me to………Or…….

I could take the path less traveled. I could make a push at my limitless potential. I could try to reset my intelligently designed body to heal itself! That is crazy enough, it just might work! So, this film is my 60 day journey into finding my limitless me. What kind of an effect can eating raw, clean foods and working out consistently have on my mental, physical, medical, emotional, spiritual, and relational life? We will see as I am an AVERAGE JOE ON THE RAW!"

My friend Penni Shelton is a co-producer of this film, I can promise you that you are going to be in for a tremendous treat with this fascinating, entertaining and inspiring documentary. The cast of characters who will be appearing in the film will blow you away. I believe this film will have far reaching impact way beyond the niche of the raw, vegan world. It is going to be a wonderful tool for you to use to help inspire, educate and interest friends and family about their health and their future. I want to encourage you to visit the film's website, view the trailer and sign up for their newsletter so you can have insider access to some really sweet bonuses like:
  • Additional behind the scenes footage not viewable anywhere else
  • Awesome recipes from Russell James, me, Dara Dubinet, and many more
  • Updates on the progress of the film
  • Amazing workout vids from Paul Risse (can't wait for you to meet Paul - AMAZING)
  • Challenges and contests for great coupons from really great companies to help you on your raw journey
  • and so much more
I'm so excited about this project and am looking forward to sharing more details with you in the days and weeks ahead!

AHA! My Words Are Transforming ME!

Speak only with good purpose. It it doesn't serve, don't say it.

Earlier, we talked about the Snap Yourself Idea...every time you have a negative thought...

Now it is time to focus further on the words you speak. The spoken word has a tremendous impact on both your external and internal reality. Words have power. Whatever you say eventually comes back to you like a boomerang. Hence, it is critical to use words properly.

Marshall Thurber, a partner in one of the most successful real estate companies in San Francisco told of a powerful experiment he conducted with his office staff. "There was one discipline that immediately transformed my entire organization. It developed from one of our weekly Monday morning meetings with the entire company. As that meeting I read a page from a book detailing the life of Rolling Thunder, an American Indian Medicine Man."

These are Rolling Thunder's words:
"People have to be responsible for their thoughts, so they have to learn to control them. It may not be easy, but it can be done. First of all, if we don't want to think about certain things we don't say them. We don't have to eat everything we see and we don't have to say everything we think. So we begin by watching our words and speaking with good purpose only."

Upon reading this quote, everyone in Thurber's company agreed to only speak with good purpose. That is, "If it doesn't serve, don't say it." According to their rules, if anyone was observed not following the policy of speaking with good purpose, he or she agreed to donate $2 to a bowl in the office. At the end of the month, the money was given to charity.

This simple act of putting $2 into the bowl was a transforming experience for this entire office. According to Thurber, nothing he has done before or since has had such a powerful impact on a group of people.

This is your challenge: Choose your words carefully. Only speak with good purpose. If it doesn't serve, don't say it. If you catch yourself speaking words that do not serve, "put $2 in the bowl." whatever that means for you....Then watch the results in your own life... are doing this exercise for YOU...not for anyone else...

**Adapted from The One Minute Millionaire by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen. I believe that every self-help book out there can be applied to every part of our lives. This book specifically talks about finances. When I read this book, I could see how it can easily applied to achieving our health and wellness goals.

AHA Moments with Susan : ) 6

All you need is a simple plan and the COMMITMENT to do it.

Are you interested in your goals, or are you fully committed?

One of the most common complaints among goal setters nowadays is that there’s just not enough time to get to the ones that “really matter.” The real culprit is that most people don’t raise their goals beyond the level of general interest. They’re waiting for a vague time in the future when other things won’t get in the way or when they wrap things up.

In other words, when it’s more convenient. And of course, that time never comes, does it? If your goals are truly that important to you, don’t let anything stand in your way. You have the power to say ‘no’ and to set your priorities. Make that commitment and you automatically create an obligation that you’re bound to fulfill.

Your Internal Assets
Creativity, Imagination
Vision, Generosity
Courage, Boldness, Persistence, Integrity
Excellent Communication with others
Valuable skills
Time management

Your Internal Liabilities
Anger, Small-mindedness
Perfection, Pettiness
Fear Anxiety, Hesitancy
Bad Reputation
Poor Organization

The kind of questions you ask determines the results you get.

As you ask yourself better questions, your results will vastly improve. Click HERE

I created this tool to help you stay focused on thinking and saying gooood words!


All the tools, resources and support you need to succeed
in the raw and living foods lifestyle are available here at the Hab!

1. Ask yourself: What beliefs, goals or values may be in conflict?
2. Re-align your psychology so you naturally take action in the direction you want most.
3. Celebrate your achievements and pay it forward?
A life that is successful and fulfilled is no more difficult than a life of mediocrity. Successful people aren't any luckier, nor are they any more intelligent, or more skilled than the average person.
Successful people are distinguised by the fact that they have chosen to do the things that will make them successful. ... By choosing not to complain, you are choose to increase the success in your life!
Today is a new day! Make the best of it. Don't fill it with complaints or regrets. Break the cycle and use today to accomplish something.

Is there a problem that's been hounding you? Start taking steps to solve it. Pretending like it's not there won't make it go away. Start working on it today.

Each moment is an opportunity to live and to give. Make it count.

AHA Moments with Susan : ) 5

Control your thinking and you control your results.

Do YOU ever talk to yourself? Many people have a positive internal voice that encourages them--especially when they've done something good. It's like their own personal cheerleader: "You can do it." "Go for it." "Good for you!" "You did it!" "Way to go!" Do YOU have a voice like that?

Some people have a voice that is more skeptical: "Who do you think you are?" "You can't do that." "What an idiot." "Why are you so stupid?" "You can't do anything right." "You're so clumsy."
Sometimes, without being aware of it, this skeptical voice talks us out of our dreams. You have a great idea and immediately this voice fires off in your head, "Yeah, but. . . " followed by a string of reasons why it won't work.

We call that voice "Mr. Yabut" (or Ms. Yabut, depending upon your gender), because he or she is always trying to talk you out of something. Frankly, there are some things that you ought to be talked out of. The Yabuts can serve as a useful function--trying to protect you, to keep you out of trouble. But more often than not, Mr. and Mrs. Yabut react too quickly to stifle your creativity. Instead of a voice of reason, they try to kill the deal before it has a chance to grow.

If you let the Yabuts go unchecked they can cause unnecessary anxiety, muddled thinking, poor health--even ruin your life. If that is the case, you need to learn how to silence them and take control of your thought process. HOW?

Notice your positive, cheerleading internal voice right now. Where is it? Is is LOUD or soft? Imagine there is a sound dial that controls the volume of your internal dialogue. Turn up the volume of your positive voice. How does that make you feel? Try finding a volume level that motivates you--that encourages you to be YOUR BEST.

Notice your negative internal voice. Where is it? Whenever you notice the Yabuts' taking control, just turn the volume down. Notice how that makes you feel.

There is something else you can do to silence the Yabuts for good. You can probably find a thick rubber band in your home or office. When you put this rubber band on your left wrist, it suddenly transforms you into a STRONG, HEALTHY, HAPPY PERSON! How? Every time you catch yourself thinking a negative or counterproductive thought, you snap the rubber band. Yes, it causes pain. The pain causes a "pattern interrupt." Mentally, and perhaps vocally, you say "OWWW!"

Snap yourself every time you find yourself saying: I can't...That won't work..I'm not able ...I am not smart enough..I don't know where to start...(you get the picture) Replace your internal dialogue with words like: I'll find out how to...I'll start right now..I'm smart enought to figure this out..I can do it....etc.
The technique is so simple. Wear the band 24/7 for the next 30 days--that includes to bed and while showering. After a red welt forms on your left wrist you'll start to quickly, safely, and satisfyingly change your behavior. No one needs to know you're doing this except you. It works rapidly---within a month. It will amaze and delight you. After you experience these tremendous and fulfilling results, tell three friends about this.

Your thoughts have the power to curse or bless. They can lead you to plenty, abundance, surplus, and "have-ness".....or to lack, limitations, deprivation, scarcity, and "have-not-ness."

The choice is yours.
You can control your thinking.
Your thinking controls your behavior.
Your behavior controls your results.

Leaving The City of Guilt and Regret and Walking Into FREEDOM

Leaving the City of Guilt
by Larry Harp

I had not really planned on taking a trip this time of year, and yet I found myself packing rather hurriedly. This trip was going to be unpleasant and I knew in advance that no real good would come of it. I'm talking about my annual "Guilt Trip."

I got tickets to fly there on Wish I Had airlines. It was an extremely short flight. I got my baggage, which I could not check. I chose to carry it myself all the way. It was weighted down with a thousand memories of what might have been. No one greeted me as I entered the terminal to the Regret City International Airport. I say international because people from all over the world come to this dismal town.

As I checked into the Last Resort Hotel, I noticed that they would be hosting the year's most important event, the Annual Pity Party. I wasn't going to miss that great social occasion. Many of the towns leading citizens would be there.

First, there would be the Done family, you know, Should Have, Would Have and Could Have. Then came the I Had family. You probably know ol' Wish and his clan. Of course, the Opportunities would be present, Missed and Lost.  The biggest family would be the Yesterday's. There are far too many of them to count, but each one would have a very sad story to share.

Then Shattered Dreams would surely make and appearance. And It's Their Fault would regale us with stories (excuses) about how things had failed in his life, and each story would be loudly applauded by Don't Blame Me and I Couldn't Help It.

Well, to make a long story short, I went to this depressing party knowing that there would be no real benefit in doing so. And, as usual, I became very depressed. But as I thought about all of the stories of failures brought back from the past, it occurred to me that all of this trip and subsequent "pity party" could be cancelled by ME! I started to truly realize that I did not have to be there. I didn't have to be depressed. One thing kept going through my mind, I CAN'T CHANGE YESTERDAY, BUT I DO HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE TODAY A WONDERFUL DAY. I can be happy, joyous, fulfilled, encouraged, as well as encouraging. Knowing this, I left the City of Regret immediately and left no forwarding address. Am I sorry for mistakes I've made in the past? YES! But there is no physical way to undo them.

So, if you're planning a trip back to the City of Regret, please cancel all your reservations now. Instead, take a trip to a place called, Starting Again. I liked it so much that I have now taken up permanent residence there. My neighbors, the I Forgive Myselfs and the New Starts are so very helpful. By the way, you don't have to carry around heavy baggage, because the load is lifted from your shoulders upon arrival. God bless you in finding this great town. If you can find it -- it's in your own heart -- please look me up. I live on I Can Do It street.

AHA Moments with Susan : ) 4

I am a healthy person. I think like a healthy person.
I talk like a healthy person. I walk like a healthy person.
I believe, feel and act like a healthy person.

Like a radio that is tuned to one frequency, I am tuned to the Healthy Person's frequency.
I condition my mind to think healthy, happy, content, peaceful thoughts. I talk about the endless possibilities to all who will listen. I read what Healthy People read. I soak in what Healthy People say. I drink in their wisdom, insights and deep understandings. I listen to what Healthy People listen to.

I hang with Healthy People! I interact with Healthy People here at the Hab! I am INVOLVED in the shift and change! I comment on what is being said! I encourage others with my time. I make time to help others and as I do this...I find that I am stronger in my decisions.

I think about creating health during my days and I dream of health at night. I enjoy creating health. I am creating health and am a wise steward of it. I master my health.

I love to serve. I realize that it is the quantity an quality of my services rendered with a positive attitude that grants me unlimited, overflowing, ever-flowing compensation. I am constantly rendering increasingly better service. The better I serve my body, the better I feel.

I love challenges. I conquer any health challenging mountains with glee and joy in my heart.

There is a banquet of health ready and waiting for me I cheerfully help others on their journey to health and wholeness. Being a healthy person means I live an energized, balanced life, growing, serving, sharing...

It's great to be healthy and strong!

This year it is vital that you take seriously the fact that this is the only body you are ever going to have.

Letting Go Of What Limits Us

Let's keep our thoughts and words elevated....
this is one of my fav Penni videos from the RFR Archives:

2nd BONUS:
Did you know that January was National Be On-Purpose Month? (So what that it is April!!  Let's be ON-PURPOSE all year long!)  This January observance was created to encourage us to start the new year by putting our good intentions into action and to trade confusion for clarity as we integrate our lives with more meaning and purpose.

Today is a day to recognize that the expanded person you can become is the person you are in your heart already. What if you become an inspiration of what it means to live a life so in harmony with your soul’s purpose that others catch the spirit of that energy just being in your presence?

Say yes to your purpose. : )

AHA Moments with Susan : ) 3

The THIRD AHA: Be - Do - Have
First, be.
Then, do.
Then you can have all the health you want!
You must BE before you DO.
You are a human BEing, not a doing...

Say this ALOUD:
I am Healthy!
I love Health and Health loves me.
I am choosing to be healthy 24 hours a day.
I wisely know how to create health in my body
I want a healthy body.
I believe I can have a healthy body.
I believe that I deserve a healthy body...down to my very core.

At Raw Food Rehab provide you with the tools and resources pertaining to the Raw and Living Foods Lifestyle.  YOU provide the motivation, the elbow grease, THE INITIATIVE...the desire and want to.  It is your personal responsibility as to what you CHOOSEto put into your mouth and how you move your body!  You only have one body....How you care for it is your decision!
What is your health WORTH to you is the question you need to ask yourself.

I like the quote from There is a Cure for Diabetes by Gabriel Cousens: (pg 248)

Inner Revolution
Revolution doesn't have to do with smashing something; it has to do with bringing something forth.

If you spend all your time thinking thinking about that which you are attacking, then you are negatively bound to it. You have to find the zeal in yourself and bring that out. That is what is given to you--one life to live. Marx teaches us to blame society for our frailties; Freud teaches us to blame our parents; astrology teaches us to blame the universe. The only is within: you didn't have the guts to bring up your full moon and live the life that was your potential. quoted by Joseph Campbell, from Pathways to Bliss

My comments on the above quote..
When we take personal responsibility for our life
and do not complain about the results, we feel great.
If we do not like what the results are, we can always change.
Blame is only felt if we do not take personal responsibility.

Here is another great quote from Gabriel Cousens in this book,
... what he says about the Culture of Life vs. the Culture of Death:

The Culture of Life promotes eating healthy and everything that brings LIFE!
The Culture of Death promotes moderation...moderation kills (see page 246)

"For many of us who are new to eating plant-source foods, this diet can seem unusual until we get used to it.
As we move TOWARD an organic, live-food, diet,
we also move
FROM : low-nutrient to high nutrient-dense foods;
FROM the suffering of disease symptoms to their dissolution;
FROM dead foods to vibrant, living food,
FROM maximum to minimum health care costs;
FROM below average to above average life span;
FROM millions of dying of starvation to almost none;

FROM a transition diet of eating for comfort alone
TO a transformative diet of eating as a means and support for personal growth."

On page 247. he talks about the 3 internal realizations as you shift into the Culture of Life ......check this out...

At first, you perceive the changes in your life as deprivation:
"I am not eating my standard, ego-centered diet anymore."

Next, you move to transition:
"I am not eating my standard, ego-centered diet and I eat a Culture of Life World Cuisine."

And then you move on to abundance and joy:
"I eat a Culture of Life World Cuisine and enjoy the pleasure of being healthy and being free from diabetes (or you fill in the blank.)"

This journey is an inner revolution, a mindset shift from deprivation to abundance...
I use this concept when I teach my raw food classes to help other's
make the shift necessary to walk this lifestyle in ease...

Once you get it clear in your mind, it is far easier to carry it out!
