Radical Faith

What is radical faith? I hope to illustrate it here in this post. The reason I am writing this is because I am in a situation that requires it. I had previously written about my son, David, and how sick he is. He is going to undergo a procedure on his heart on March 7th, 2017. He is so ill he can barely make it through the day. Needless to say, I have been beseeching God for his healing every day. As I am going through this with him, I have often wondered as to the why of it, as most Christians often do when confronted with something catastrophic or life-threatening.

God does not do things willy-nilly and there is always a purpose for everything we go through. Of course, He wants us to draw near to Him, to be closer to Him. That’s a given. But what if there is something else brewing below the surface? What if He is using this particular trial to accomplish something great?
“Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” (Ephesians 3:20 KJV)
I bought a book by my favorite Christian author, Priscilla Shirer, titled “God Is Able.” It is perfect for this situation and any situation you find yourself in because she addresses everything you can possibly feel while going through it. I never once doubted God’ ability to heal. But she took it a step further and said He would do it, He would intercede on my son’s behalf, on your behalf for whatever you are going through because He is KIND. I also know this because Jesus said whatever we ask for in His Name, the Father will do it. Healing is in Jesus’ nature. He healed thousands when He walked the earth and many times more since then. And it is also stated in Matthew 8:17 “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias, the prophet, saying Himself took in our infirmities and bare our sicknesses.”

Going back to what He might be working out in this case is most likely multifaceted. He is working something out in David and He is definitely working something out in me. Because, in spite of what people see on the outside, they will never see my interior life with God. It might manifest itself in some ways as it comes to the surface but the deep down thoughts of my heart are for His eyes only. What request of my heart is He about to grant using this health crisis my son is going through? [I also have another son, Derek, who desperately needs Divine Intervention and also healing at the same time, too. In fact, a complete spiritual overhaul and strengthening.]

First, let us look at two very prime examples of radical faith and what it can do. In both cases, it did not take an entire congregation praying for the person. It only took the faith of one. In Matthew 8:5-13 we read the story of the Roman Centurion who came to Christ to ask that his servant be healed. Christ was ready to go with him right then and there, but the Centurion tells Him that he is not worthy enough for Christ to enter his house. Instead, the Centurion says, “say the word and my servant will be healed.” He then uses himself as an example of one who orders commands and asks Christ to do the same. Jesus, astounded at this man’s faith, his radical faith, heals the servant immediately.

In Matthew 9:18-20 we read that Jesus is on his way to resurrect a young girl who is sick and will die. But as he is about to do this miracle, a woman who has bled for many, many years creeps up behind him, saying in her heart that if she can just touch the end of his cloak, she will be healed. No one else is paying attention to her, no one else is praying for her. She is alone in this with the exception of God, Himself, who is but a step away from her. So with her radical faith, she reaches out and touches his cloak. Jesus immediately feels it and turns to ask who touched him. His disciples tell him in disbelief how can he ask this when there is a crowd pressing up against him. It is then that the woman reveals herself and Jesus tells her that her faith has made her whole. She was healed at that instant.

So what I am praying for is David’s complete and total healing. But deep inside of me I want to be changed, radically changed. I want a faith so rock solid that nothing will shake me. Not only do I want to be a profitable servant, I want to be weapon in the Hands of my Almighty God and Savior. So while satan has been driving a knife into my heart, I want to take out my sword and cut his head off! I want God to use me in ways I never would think possible.

David’s healing will have a galvanizing affect on our little church as well as a riveting affect on those who don’t even believe. Because I know once he is healed, he will be an unstoppable warrior in the hands of God. Just as I will be, just as others will be. An unstoppable, fearless weapon.

The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street

I had watched an episode of Twilight Zone with that above title. The scene opens on a Saturday in a normal American neighborhood in the 1950s. Everyone who is outside sees an unusual sight. It appeared to be a meteor falling to earth but they heard not a sound. A short time later, they began to experience electrical failure such as lights suddenly not turning on and cars not starting. In addition the phones, stoves and even transistor radios (those were portable radios back in the day.)stopped working which added to the general state of confusion. One guy, Pete Van Horn, walks off to the next block, Floral Street, to see if they have a problem. Two of the husbands decide to head into town but the car doesn’t start. They decide to walk but before they leave a young boy, named Tommy, tells them about a science fiction story he read describing how this is how it all starts. He proceeds to tell them about aliens that landed to earth and even stated that they had sent a team of four: a man, woman and 2 children, who look human but are not, ahead of the landing. Soon everyone is looking at each other with suspicion. One of men tells the others to get a grip and not to believe the imagination of some child.

However, soon more things go awry, like one man’s car, that didn’t start before, suddenly starts by itself and he was not even in it. The car suddenly stops. Mob mentality is beginning to take over as they walk toward the man, named Les. One guy, Steve, tries to reason with everyone but to no avail. Les begins to back away, afraid as they cast suspicion upon him; that he must be one of the aliens sent ahead of the landing. The car starts and stops. People start talking about seeing the guy looking out at the sky at night. Even though he explains he has trouble sleeping, he is not believed and the woman accusing him adds an unproven explanation based on little or no fact. “He was staring up at the sky as if he was waiting for something.” (an erroneous supposition on her part) Les tries to reason with them warning them they are starting something here that is not true and out of control. Steve tries again to reason with everyone, yelling at them at this point.

Once night descends, they are in total darkness and emotions run high and reason goes out the window. Steve still tries to reason with everyone but this one man, Charlie, is losing control fast. Everyone sees someone walking down the street in the dark and one of the guys runs to get a gun. Charlie grabs the gun and ends up shooting the person. Turns out it was Pete Van Horn who had left earlier to find out about the next block. Pete lays dead in the street and Charlie is wailing how was he supposed to know because it was dark. They chase Charlie back to his house and throw rocks at him. Charlie, in an attempt to cast suspicion onto someone else, names the child, Tommy, as the alien. Tommy runs for his life back to his house.

Soon the lights on various houses suddenly go back on, and then more, flashing on and off. Everyone is running amok in the street, totally out of their minds with fright and madness. Shots are fired, windows busted and everyone is screaming wildly.

Up on a hill, two aliens are watching this. Yes, they engineered the whole thing but there were no four people sent on ahead. Those on Maple Street were all human. The leader tells his subordinate that this all follows a pattern no matter what city they go to. They just disrupt electricity and every appliance and vehicle. Then after the humans are in darkness for a few hours they all react the same. He says, “They pick the most dangerous enemy they can find, which is themselves.” He says they go from one city to another and watch the people destroy themselves.

Does this sound familiar? The aliens in our case are satan and his demons. He’s been doing this for millennia. It is more apparent now because of our increased population and technology. But the game plan is the same. Turning man against each other is quite easy for him and humans, most of which don’t believe in God, go along with it.

I saw the news leading up to the present election and the inauguration. Hate on BOTH sides is very apparent. Yes, those who are shouting at President Trump about his “hatred”, they are engulfed in it, too. In fact, some of the things they are shouting about he did in the past and he apologized for and said that it was in the past. Well, that’s not good enough for those people and whatever he did in the past still sticks to him in the present. (I’m not defending him but using him to illustrate a point since the reaction to his election is so extreme. He got elected by the people of the United States. No, I don’t believe Russians had anything to do with it. That’s more Monsters on Maple Street. I don’t trust government agencies 100% to tell the truth, either. But you can apply this to anyone, really. If Clinton was elected, I’d be saying the same thing, though I’d have more to say because I definitely don’t support her. Once she said that Christians had to change what they believe to include those who are blatantly against the teachings in the Bible and want to remake God in their own image, I didn’t want anything to do with her even more so than before. If God says a particular behavior is wrong, then that’s it! God does NOT change.) It’s easy to point the finger at another. If the sins of all those finger-pointers were revealed for all to see, there would be very little said about another person. [You will note that the ones screaming about how the other guy is full of hate, do the most damage and destruction? The riot on election day is proof of that. In fact, the rioters, all dressed in black with black balaclavas and head scarves, remind me very much of ISIS fighters as they ran amok busting car and business windows.]

Yes, love does Trump hate but those who spout it don’t know what real love is. I’m definitely not a perfect example of it, either. But Jesus is. He gave His life for you, all of you. Not a select few. Everybody. When God says the whole world, He means it in its entirety. John 3:16.

When Christ returns, it’s all going to change rapidly. There won’t be any finger pointing or shouting about one’s own rights. God will tell you that you have no rights. Mankind is not capable of governing himself and history and current events have proved that over and over again.
True peace will reign under Jesus. There won’t be any hardships or evil in the world. It will all end.

As for me, I can’t wait. . .

The Pearl of Great Price…

..Is your salvation. Guard it with your life. Do not slack off or become lazy as we live in very perilous times and it will get much worse. First, I have a disclaimer for all those who need to hear it. I didn’t vote. Yeah, that’s right, I didn’t. As for why…it was something really simple. I missed the cutoff date to register. I had so many other things occupying my mind that I completely forgot. I wasn’t 100% in favor of either candidate. I’m not really politically minded, anyway. When I booted my computer up the day after the election, I stared at the screen in disbelief that Trump got elected. I was shocked and suddenly things felt surreal. I knew if Hillary was elected, Christians would be facing serious persecution and I was getting my heart ready for that because that is who I thought would be elected. When I saw Trump’s name splashed across MSN.com I realized that when I spoke to God the previous night, He actually clued me in. I don’t even remember what I was even praying about but there was a sudden peace that came over my heart when God let me know it was going to be Trump. I thought it was a bit odd when I felt it, too. My reaction was, “Nah it couldn’t be.” God is in ultimate control of everything, in spite of the fact that this planet is being run by Satan who is going full blast revving humanity up with more hatred. I had previously thought that God had washed His hands of the United States but when I felt that peace, I obviously jumped to the wrong conclusion. And when I saw the political map displaying which states were red and which ones were blue, it was a surprise at how many were red. For whatever reason, we now have Donald Trump as the next president. Trump is not 100% God-approved candidate but if you read your Bible, God has influenced even the most pagan kings to do His Will. (Like the Book of Daniel, for example. Joseph-coat-of-many-colors ended up in a very high position in Egypt all to accomplish God’s will.) I still thinks its all surreal and I can’t even begin to imagine what is going to take place next, which is why…

YOU MUST GUARD THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE. Yes, God protects us but you can’t slack off and be very, very careful of what another Christian writer has to say. I’m saying this because some have gotten really lax and, in some cases, downright dangerous to your salvation to read. I won’t mention any names right now but there is one writer whose books I have actually thrown out. Why? Because her writing was getting sensual and too “me” oriented. That’s why. If a writer is concentrating more on the self and not on getting closer to God through prayer and Bible study and allowing the Holy Spirit to take over, then that writer needs to be ignored. This particular writer whose books I threw out, is very, very popular. I don’t know why she posted pictures (twice) of her unmade bed in the bedroom she shares with her husband and references their active sex life. Yeah, I stopped subscribing to her post, too.

I one time walked into a church that was sensual and didn’t stay long. Too many disturbing things were taking place and it made my hair stand on end. When the pastor mentioned a reference during the sermon to his sexual fantasies and they also hold sex classes for couples, I knew I was in the wrong place. It took an encounter with an unbalanced individual to propel me out the door. All events were happening at the same time. So…this tells me that Satan, who flashes sex before our eyes with today’s marketing, has been working on the Body of Christ. It’s not just a case of the pastor running off with a choir member, it’s infiltrating the church as a whole. Unless, you put on the whole Armor of God. Unless you are getting that sin out of your life and not toying with it for years and taking the grace of God for granted, you will get your butt whooped by Jesus. Or you will have the door slammed in your face. Because you see, the longer it takes you to get your act together, the more time Satan has to build a stronghold in your mind and heart that will be difficult to take down. It will take a lot of prayer, fasting and talking to God to turn your life around.

I have a little prayer corner in my room. It’s just a straight back chair painted black that I picked up at Goodwill for $8. I put it by the window and I have a folding table that I use to put my Bible and notebook on. It’s one of those small ones that people use to put their food on when watching TV. But as soon as I sit in that chair, I feel peace come over me. It’s like sitting in the Throne room of God. So I can look up at the sky and the tops of pine trees and talk to Him about anything and everything. My day goes 100% better when I do it. You know, you don’t have to spend hours with Him to get any benefits. I would love to be able to spend longer times with Him and I have to work on that this year. You can pray anywhere, anytime. You don’t need a special corner. I just happen to have a tiny space I can fit a chair and little table into. img_20170106_132629556

There is going to be more escalated violence headed our way and it’s already begun. People are filled with so much hatred that they are controlled by it and can’t see beyond that.

Stay close to God. Compare whatever anyone says to what is in the Bible. Stay away from those who are too “me” oriented and not enough Jesus oriented. Time is short, folks. So, above all, work on being spiritually minded and put to death your carnal nature. Christians have no idea what it is like to be very spiritually minded. It’s a whole other realm of existence.

We are getting closer to the return of Christ as things go from bad to worse to worse than we can possibly imagine. I feel such an urgency to exhort my fellow Christian to beef up their life with God. Remember Who you belong to. Remember who the enemy is. You have a Power within you that slays Satan to the quick. Don’t let it burn out.

Help Our Sick Pastor

The pastor of our tiny church is seriously ill. He has sleep apnea for which he needs a machine to breathe at night. But more seriously he has heart problems and might need a pacemaker. He also has growths on his thyroid. He works a full time job outside the church to support his family and he is trying to sell his motorcycle and get another vehicle because his coordination is so off that he can’t ride the Harley anymore. Most of the time he is just so beyond exhaustion, he can barely function. I don’t have Facebook but have started a GoFundMe page in order to try to raise some funds to help him. Right now anything would help. He also goes to Bible school, too. He has to get up very early every morning to do his school work and then get his wife up. Right now he has a ride to work and I take him to his doctor’s appointments. I think he had five or six this month alone. I’m his mother. The GoFundMe idea came to me while praying. So any success goes to God, not me.
Anyway, here is the GoFundMe page. Please put this on your Facebook page or pass it around. Anything would help right now. http://www.gofundme.com/help-our-ill-pastor

Read the Bible

So I was going to start reading the Bible from Genesis to Revelation again. Over the course of the years, I’ve read it but not always in the order of the books. Anyway, I got side tracked and read Habakkuk and was going to do a post on that but then was lead to read Nehemiah. After Nehemiah I was, once again, going to go back to Habakkuk but ended up in Ezra.

Ezra and Nehemiah were once one book but a monk named Jerome separated them into two books in around 300-something A.D. (I read a long time ago that Jerome also was the one that chose which books would comprise the gospels out of the pile of variations he dealt with and he burned the rest! I guess so as to prevent other versions from appearing later as the “missing gospel of Mary Magdeline”, although one did appear out of no where. I would give no credence to such rubbish.)

Nehemiah was responsible for rebuilding the wall in Jerusalem and the workers had to do it with a sword in one hand because of the opposition. We cannot begin to grasp what it was like for the people of that time and how they persevered in the face of adversity. But Ezra, which is the book before Nehemiah deals with the building of the temple which was funded by a pagan King Cyrus. God can use whoever He pleases to get things done. Several other prophets all lived during the same time as Ezra and Nehemiah, such as Jeremiah and later, Esther. I began taking notes in my Bible notebook that I use on Sundays to take notes in so I could remember the highlights of each book as I read them. Writing things down also helps one to remember.

Back to Nehemiah. First of all Israel was in captivity for once again being disobedient to God. They were constantly sinning and thumbing their nose at God who had provided for them and cared for them. Contrary to the popular lie of the atheists, the God of the Old Testament is just as loving as the God, Jesus, of the New Testament because they are one and the same God. He constantly was pleading with Israel not to go down the dark road but they never wanted to listen. Mankind has not changed since day one. Still wants to do everything his own way and thousands of years of history prove that man’s way is disastrous and leads to misery. But man and his Luciferan pride still will insist he has found some new way, some new revelation, some new crock of crap that he thinks will propel him into a new “consciousness”.

Nehemiah found the books of the law. The books of Moses and they were read aloud to the people from sunrise to noon. There were a lot of cries as well as a lot of cheers which could be heard in other towns. God did not want His people to intermarry with other people because He knew that they would be drawn away to pagan gods. Nehemiah beat the men who allowed their sons and daughters to be married off to foreigners. You might think that is harsh but God wanted His people to remain His people. The unconverted mind does not understand that and thinks God is harsh but God is merely trying to save them from being swayed by demons; the very demons that were once angels that He threw out of Heaven.

It was a different world back then because humans were heavily involved with their gods and there was the one true God, who they did fear. Today man’s other gods are himself, money, power, lust and a host of other things that are not always represented by a statue or monument.

I read in the book, Fervent, by Priscilla Shirer, that when a prophet of God would appear it was a sign that God was there, too. The people knew they could go to the prophet for a Word from God. So the prophet would go to the Logos (the Word), because no one saw the Father as Jesus told us, to get instruction. The Logos, as stated in John 1:1 was Jesus Christ. The prophet would then tell the people what God said. In effect, the prophet was the Word’s spokesman. Like the Logos’ logos. I think it was pretty exciting to actually hear God speak and, in some cases, to see Him. Now we have to wait till He returns for all that but He does speak to us through the Bible and also in our minds and hearts. I know when I am hearing from Him.

Okay this is getting long and I’ll cut it short here and continue on with another post on another book or whatever Jesus wants me to write about.

God bless you all.

Eat More Good Fats

Okay I was going to continue working on a post I started last week having to do with Nehemiah and Ezra. I am holding off because I watched this amazing video by Dr. Mark Hyman which I got the link to from Dr. Perlmutter whose book “Grain Brain Cookbook” I bought and gave to my son. A lot of my current research is because my son, David, is sick. http://www.redeemedanddelivered.church/

Despite what the American people have been told fat is not your enemy but refined sugar and carbohydrates in the form of any grain, bread, pasta, white rice, etc. is the enemy. The average American consumes 152 pounds of sugar a year! This can include high fructose corn syrup which is a big contributor to obesity. So I watched this video and took notes which I am going to share with you right now because American obesity has gone through the roof and that is because people, including many doctors, have relied on OLD research which has since been proved wrong.
The good fats are organic extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocados, certain fish from which we get omega 3. That is NOT farmed salmon. Stay away from farmed fish and anything that says Atlantic salmon. It is full of antibiotics and other crap and is very low in Omega 3. Sardines are also a good source of omega 3 as is walnuts, chia seeds,flax, and pumpkin seeds.

Recent studies have shown that good fats can reverse diabetes. Yes you read that correctly. Dr. Hyman used to be of the group that prescribed low fat diets to his patients but they were not getting well. He then prescribed high fat, low carb and refined sugar to them and the results were amazing. His patients got better and LOST WEIGHT!

There is fat in all of the cells in your body and your brain is made of mostly fat! In fact, ingestion of the good fats and MCT (medium chain triglycerides) which is found in coconut oil can help to halt dementia and in some cases reverse it. Good fats can also help to get rid of inflammation. Most of the diseases are a form of inflammation in the body. What is needed is not to turn the fire on in the first place. You can wake up your brain with a high fat-very low carb diet. Now the low carbs would be your vegetables and some fruits. You really need to increase the veg consumption.
Recent studies have shown that fats are not linked to heart disease but refined sugar which gets stored as the bad fat in the body does contribute to it and so do carbs in the form of any grain and food items made from it: flour, bread, pasta, etc. Most people do not get the NMR lipid test and the cardio IQ test which really gives an accurate picture of what is going on.

Cholesterol is more complex than previously known. You need the good fats to beef up the good cholesterol which is the HDL one. And it lowers the bad one:LDL
Dr. Hyman did a study where he put a group of people on a high fat diet for 21 days. They lost an average of 7 pounds, although one person lost 46 pounds and all their symptoms disappeared!!

Fats will also make you feel less hungry and give you more energy. If you have a sluggish brain and brain fog, look at your diet. It’s probably all jacked up. Time for a change and onto the road to good health! The Original Manufacturer of the human body, God, knew what He was doing. He knows how the body works and what it needs and He has led me to learn all sorts of new and wonderful things that I can pass on to everyone else. There will be more posts as I learn more. Right now going through Suzy Cohen’s book on “Thyroid Healthy” which also supports findings I discovered with Dr. Hyman and Dr. Perlmutter.

What I do to add the good fats in aside from cooking with extra virgin (organic) olive oil is that I add a tablespoon of organic coconut oil to my shake which I make with Vega One protein. Vega works for me and has 20 grams of protein in it. It has NO grains, no soy, no dairy, no gluten, no corn which are the common allergens. It does have pea protein and a host of good organic veg, fruit, probiotics and maca root. I add a teaspoon of Nordic Natural omega 3 oil to it. Nordic Natural is pretty pure and uses third party lab to scan for any impurities. Then I take my other supplements with that like clean chlorella, D3, vitamin C, digestive enzymes, Gaia Herbs holy basil and Garden of Life probiotics but the one that is Dr. Formulated which does not have dairy in it. I take B complex and calcium/magnesium later due to the fact I am on levothyroxine and calcium can interfere with that if I take it in the morning. I will be adding Thyro Script from Suzy Cohen who is a pharmacist. http://suzycohen.com/ Coconut oil also helps the thyroid gland.

You can get Dr. Hyman’s book “Eat Fat-Get Thin” from any book retailer like Barnes and Noble or Amazon. Dr. Perlmutter’s book is great, too. I want to get the actual book “Grain Brain” soon. I did buy the cookbook which has very interesting information in the first 30 pages but the book it’s based on contains more. He goes into how grains and things made from grains are the cause of obesity, attention deficit disorder and a host of other problems including diabetes and heart disease. Dr.Perlmutter is a neurologist. In other words, he is a brain doctor.
Go check out their websites: Dr. Perlmutter: http://www.drperlmutter.com/ and this one for Dr. Hyman which gives you access to the very same video I just watched!! http://drhyman.com/

40 Days

From last Wednesday, February 10th, is the season of Lent. 40 days till Resurrection Sunday or Easter as the world knows it. When I was a child, everyone gave up something for Lent. For kids the thing we all gave up was candy so that when we got our much anticipated Easter basket it was a real treat. I think the act of giving something up sort of put us the mode for Easter because we all got new Easter clothes, shoes, hat, etc. But it is not really about the candy or coloring eggs (which me and my friends all did) or getting new clothes to wear on Easter Sunday. It’s about Jesus Christ. It’s about His sacrifice for all of mankind. It’s about the Love of God which there is no equal.

Personally I think this 40 day period should be about taking stock of ourselves and getting close to Jesus Christ. Spring clean ourselves and make ourselves ready for the King. We should be doing this all the time, mind you, but during this season we should really concentrate on it.

It is time to stop finding ridiculous excuses for not engaging in our relationship with God. It is time to kill all the “distractions” we claim are interfering with it. And if you are too easily distracted away from Christ you better seriously take a look at yourself and your conversion. This is our eternal life that I am talking about. Not about the super bowl, the hot babe (or guy) at the office, the mountain of bills at home, or any other distraction that Satan so effectively puts in front of your face because he knows it is so easy to get you off track. That makes for a poor warrior, if you are too easily distracted all the time and have let your prayer life become next to nil. And all those distractions won’t exist in the Kingdom of God. Nope. No super bowl, no lusting after whatever, no bills, no worries, no distractions. It will be a life the likes of which you cannot possibly imagine because in the blink of an eye, we will go from having a fleshly body to something way beyond our imagination. A Spirit body. And that is forever. For all eternity. What we have here on earth isn’t even life. It doesn’t even come close.

It’s not enough to read the Bible and quote scripture. The devil can do that, too. It’s in doing what Christ commands that is important and to maintain contact with Him always. Yes, you can be 24/7 in the Jesus Zone. You have to partner with Him in the development of the relationship. After all, isn’t He your first Love? He is the one who takes control. Not you. You have to let Him. You have to give up your stupid human nature and get on with it. Straighten up and fly right. Don’t let Satan reinforce the stronghold he already built inside your head. Take down the stronghold once and for all.

I cannot imagine my life without Him. I am SO THANKFUL for Him. And like I said in my previous post, you can pray anywhere at any time. I’ve told Him on a number of occasions to just burn the sin out of me because I don’t want it anymore.

It is so essential that you soldier-up right now. Things are going to get real scary in the future and Satan is working at full blast. Don’t allow “distractions” to get in the way. Fear not. Or as John Wayne put it once “Courage is being scared and saddling up anyway.” Things are going to get hair raising. Look to yourself, not what someone else is doing. Don’t compare yourself to others. God certainly isn’t.

But most of all make this 40 day period profitable. Study your Bible and pray. Pray always. If you are at a loss what do study this Lenten season you can go to sites like You Version for ideas and also MargaretFeinberg.com. She always has some Bible reading plan laid out for the 40 days. Here is the link for this current 40 days and she also has a bunch of others. http://margaretfeinberg.com/thank-you-for-subscribing-to-margaret-feinberg-com/

God bless you all.
