    The Worry Cure: Part Two – My Worry Profile

    I started going through “The Worry Cure” by Dr. Robert Leahy in the last post. So far I like it, but it certainly hasn’t cured my worry. Then again, I’m still only in part one of this book. In this post, I’m going to write down what my worry profile is, according to the results of the five tests I took in the book. They are actually very accurate and it’s good to know what is going on in my mind, because most of the time I didn’t even think about any of this consciously. But now I need to know how to solve it! According to the book, I…

    The Worry Cure: Part One

    I am a chronic worrier. Honestly, I don’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t worrying. It’s always been bad, off and on, but lately, its getting to the point where it is almost debilitating. I don’t want to do anything except curl up in bed and pray to never wake up. So, my husband insisted that I needed to find something that would help me. I love God’s Word, but it just wasn’t helping me to stop worrying. Maybe I’ve just heard the same Scriptures so often that they don’t offer new meaning. But I also believe that God helps us discover more about the human mind…

    Depression

    I’ll be honest with you guys, because part of my goal on Live, Love, and Cherish is to be completely open so that you can connect with me and maybe even see part of yourself in me. I’m really struggling with depression right now. I’ve tried the freelance writing thing for two months and except for writing on this blog (which I love), I hate freelance writing. I hate writing for other people, being forced to choose topics I’m not interested in or have to spend HOURS researching, not to mention being terrified of plagiarizing anything accidentally. And trying to make money from it is so hard. I have to…

    Money Money

    I hate money. I really, really do. Money has been the biggest stressor in my life all of my life. My parents never seemed to have enough money and debt has always been a big part of our lives. Now my husband and I struggle financially, which I never wanted and in fact was trying hard to avoid. I wish we were in a society where money didn’t matter. I would actually prefer a bartering system. I need food, let me write your article for you. I feel like that would put everyone on a more level playing ground. I know it wouldn’t work and I know that money isn’t…

    12 Items You Need to Organize Your Kitchen

    Last month my husband and I moved into a two-bedroom trailer. The kitchen is…tiny to say the least. There is almost no counter-space, one drawer that if you open it slams into the refrigerator, very few cupboards, and I’ve had to put half of my kitchen appliances in boxes because I have no room for them in the kitchen. I’ll admit, my kitchen is not very organized. That’s why I’m making this post – to help you and me organize our kitchens more efficiently, especially if you have a small kitchen like I do. So, I went to the place I always go when I want to buy something: Amazon!…

    Welcome back to my blog! Today I am wrapping up my “What Everyone Ought to Know About Veganism” in part three. If you haven’t read them already, please check out part one and part two. Also, just as a reminder, all of this information comes from the website “What the Health” and you can always check them out and get more information.

Instead, I want to warn you what is really in our foods and the huge possibility of health issues that stem from them. I have…

    What Everyone Ought to Know About Veganism: Part Two

    Hey there and welcome back to my blog! I hope you guys enjoyed part one of this series on veganism. I know some of the information can be hard to “hear” because we have grown so accustomed to including meat in our diets. And I’m not saying you have to cut it out entirely, as my husband and I have done. I just want you, my dear reader, to understand the unhealthy effects that meat can have on your body. My goal is not to frighten you, but to educate you on how to live a healthier life, have a healthy diet, and make better choices to improve your life.…

    What Everyone Ought to Know About Veganism: Part One

    Towards the end of August, my husband and I watched “What the Health” on Netflix. It really opened our eyes to the truth about health in our society, the dangers of eating meat, and helped us switch to veganism (although I do have cheese now and again). Many people have misconceptions about veganism and what it’s really all about. You see, it isn’t just about not killing animals and eating them. We aren’t bleeding hearts who throw red paint on fur coats. While I do see animals in a different light now that I’m not eating them, that isn’t why we switched our diet. We did it to create a…

    Marriage is Challenging: Part Two

    Welcome back everyone, to week two of my blog! Thank you so much for the comments I’ve received so far. I’d love to hear from more of you! But for now, on with the tale of my husband and I, and where we are today. After my husband lost his job, we tried starting an e-commerce store. It didn’t work out, but that was my fault. He wanted me to follow the guidelines of other successful stores, but I was afraid of not making money and rushed everything. I didn’t want to watch the videos, I didn’t want to wait and test the market or make sure we were getting the…
