Oil Pulling

Have you ever tried oil pulling?
You take a spoonful of coconut oil and swish it around your mouth for about 20 min.
If you try it be sure to spit the oil into the trash, not your sink.

The first time I tried it I was expecting to gag and have a fowl taste in my mouth.
Honestly it has a mild taste and if you had an essential oil like peppermint 
you can't even taste the oil.

I thought that 20 min would kill me, but if I do it with my morning jobs, 
it goes by fast.  I just set a timer and start cleaning.

My teeth felt cleaner from day one, my teeth are less sensitive
 and have less build up at the end of the day.

I had a tooth that felt like a cavity was starting and now seems completely fine.

I will admit that I have fallen off the oil pulling wagon and the other day got a canker sore.
Super lame!  I decide to try oil pulling with On Guard and it was gone the next day.
I have never had a canker heal that fast.
So needless to say me and oil pulling our back on and I have learned my lesson.

As a side note Coconut Oil is also amazing on your face and helps a bunch with acne.

Easter Art Project

Being married to an artistie guy is amazing.
Justin the week before Easter painted a new painting that represents when 
our Savior will come again and we will be reunited with Levi.
Honestly it filled my heart with so much love and hope and filled it with a deep longing for 
that day which seems forever away.
At times my heartaches for the babies we have lost.
I am grateful for this heartache, because it has helped me understand how strong
that longing is for someone who desperately wants a child who they can't have.
I think of Hannah praying at the wall and pouring out her heart for a child,
I know something of that heartache and I can relate to her in a whole new way.
What joy and peace she must have felt when the Prophet Eli told her the Lord had heard
and would bless her with Samuel.   

We are so very loved, a Family is Forever!
