About

Thanks for stopping by!  My name is Beth, and I’m a 21 year old Music Education major who loves to cook, be healthy and learn, day by day, how to live a balanced life.

Purpose

I am SUPER excited to share recipes – the good and the bad…the successes and failures – but mostly, the fun and joy that can be found in nourishing ourselves and making peace with our bodies.  There are a bazillion ways, I’m sure, to make body peace, but for me, I think the creation of food will be key.  I’ll get into that later :)

So who am I?

I’m a daughter, sister, friend, auntie, and most importantly, a follower of Christ.  I love making music, and I adore traveling…although I don’t particularly like flying.  I could spend hours collecting recipes, and I actually really enjoy grocery shopping.  Just like everyone else, I have battles I face daily.  My biggest fight right now is anorexia, hence my belief that the creation of food will be a key element to making body peace.  Since my diagnosis in late 2009, I’ve learned so much about myself, the people around me and the character of God.  I have a lot of work left to do, but I have made measurable (although sometimes intangible) progress, and am always striving for forward motion.  So why this blog?

In a nutshell, here’s the goal and purpose:

  • To share recipes, both healthful and indulgent.
  • To share my healing and recovery journey, and perhaps provide some insight or inspiration for someone along the way.
  • To ultimately point to Jesus as my healer and the source of my body peace.

What you’ll see here

Recipes, obviously ;)

Stories of my healing journey

The occasional music video link

Random shenanigans such as hikes and restaurant expeditions

Whatever else comes to mind

Enjoy

  1. I just found your blog and you seem like an amazing and talented person with so much to offer the world. Good luck to your battle with anorexia, weight is such a struggle, I am always counting calories and being harsh on myself, but God made us for who we are for a reason, we must accept that (easier said than done for sure!) Stay strong and keep your faith, I look forward to following your blog:-)

    • I appreciate your encouragement so much! Self acceptance is a long and challenging road, but it’s so rewarding in the long run. I’ve learned SO much about myself on this journey, and learned a lot about the character of God. So glad you stumbled upon my blog :)
