Are you up for the challenge? If you are not, it may not be simply a matter of willpower.

As requested by a follower and a reader here is some more information about the Daniel Diet. Best information is from the Bible.

I have included the verses in the bible that shows where I got this information.
Daniel 1:12-14 ( which I do ask to get your bibles and read that verses. )
Basically,  Daniel is making a deal with the eunuch of King Nebuchadnezzar that him and his 3 friends will not eat meat that is sacrificed to idols of their god. and they will eat vegetables that are produced by seeds and produce seeds as well for 10 days. After 10 days they were in better condition than the men that ate the meat sacrificed to their god. For that reason Daniel and his men were allowed to continue.

As far as the fast  according to Daniel 10:2-3 
In those days, I , Daniel, was mourning for 3 weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, not did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.

The three weeks Daniel is referring to is the Passover of Unleavened Bread. Which takes place in the first month of the Year.

The purpose of the fast is up to you. It can be used as a fasting to cleanse your mind, body, and soul and between you and God. When you fast for that reason you are not to let anyone know what and why you are doing. I recommend this because it will build your relationship with God closer and taking your eyes off the things in the world and trust God completely. 

Another purpose could be to cleanse your body. Doing this you will not eat certain foods for a certain amount of time. I personally did this for 21 days and I only ate things that came from the seed, You will have to get creative . You will have to read the directions and as far as seasoning your foods you may but no additional preservatives  or coloring can be added. So it is impartive that you read the directions. The book I have on my blog for review will explain all you need to know along with some great ways of cooking things. 

Doing the Daniel Diet is fairly basic and easy. 
Nuts, berries , vegetables, all natural, No preservatives, no coloring, no added anything that is not produced by seed. You can use olive oil as long as it is pure.
Can only drink water to flush out the toxins.
However sometimes not everyday I would make a berry smoothie and use water and pure juice I would squeeze.
As always result to the Bible for more information and there are several books and more resources are available online.
If you have further questions or want further information I would be happy to put my input. Just comment below.

Having A Marhta Home the Mary Way by Sarah Mae

Having Martha Home The Mary Way
 31 days to clean a house and a satisfied soul

Sarah Mae     

This is not your average cleaning and organizing book. This has nothing to do with physical cleaning. It is more so, to clean your mind and your home to be filled with love and welcoming God's grace and peace to be around you as well as be felt around you.

I struggled with this in my life and I can defiantly relate to things Sarah states in this book. I like to believe the author had went though the same struggles that I went through to be able to truly understand how I myself would see things and needed encouragement to get through the obstacles that was thrown in my way.
This book helped me , along with my Bible , to get through that.

Sarah Mae is a christian as well and the way she encourages others is so inspiring to want to do the same thing. I am so thankful for her perspective. She has a great gift that God gave her to help others.

I was never organized in anything and not the best housekeeper to be honest. After reading this book and not even meaning to I applied things that was given into this book and applied it to my cleaning and my life. I am not organized and happy. 
I learned that you can clean your home inside and out , along with cleaning your mind with your bible studies and you will find joy and peace that you never realized you lived without.

Each day Sarah writes about a different thing about cleaning in a way that you can relate and it seems just like two girls sharing stories. 

I must admit that you will put this to your way of doing things before you know it.

I received a copy of this book for reviewing purposes only. I read this book and the review is soley based on my personal opinions of this book. My words are my own and are uninfluenced and unbiased to any discount that may have been given. I did receive a copy of this book for free.
