Beauty For the Heart™And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.”

Truth: In the beginning, God created light. Even in the darkest night, the promise of dawn remains. His mercies are new every morning, and in that promise, we find hope, strength, and the unwavering love of God.

  1. Wow impressive fast! I struggle to fast 15 hours a day! I have a question, are you able to have black coffee on your fast?

    1. Yes I do. She does sugget to make sure it’s organic with no pesticides or mold which is found in some coffee. I’m drinking lots of water, and hot water with lemon essential oil.

  2. I’m excited to see what you find in Resort casual clothing! My husband and I cruise quite a lot. I’m always looking for new things and they are hard to find. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  3. Way to go with your fasting goal!! I am a big fan of Gin Stephens. Fast Feast Repeat and her new book The 28 Day Fast Start are exceptional resources. And i love her weekly podcasts too. Lots of non scale victories for me. The digestive rest of 12-14 hours has been a life changer for me. Clean fasting is essential . . .

    1. I have read all of Gin’s books and listen to her podcasts, love them. I’ve been clean fasting for about 2 years now. Hit a slump this year, so her new book came out just in time to start fresh the first of the year. Highly recommend her books and podcasts. My next read is The Obesity Code by Jason Fung.

  4. I love to wear casual dresses especially when traveling. Title Nine and Eddie Bauer usually have my favorites. They have casual dresses that don’t wrinkle and that you can wash out in the sink if needed. I’ve also picked up a couple at Loft or Gap Factory. They don’t travel as well, but are cute for at home.

  5. I saw where you are trying a 72 hour fast based on Mindy Pelz’s book. If you would like to hear a podcast with her, there are two really good podcasts that she did with Mel Robbins. Just go to Mel Robbins website and you can listen on You Tube, Apple , etc. I follow Mel Robbins on Instagram and she really has some informational podcasts. Happy New Year and good luck with your fast.

  6. Hi regarding dinner menu planning! We got a subscription to Eat At Home menu planning service. I know in advance what we’re eating for dinner which saves me time! Highly recommend it. You get access to family friendly weekly menu with shopping lists and recipes for both large (5-6) or small (3-4) size families, in all four menu categories: plant-based, no flour/no sugar, traditional, and slow cooker/instapot. The service is on sale right now too.

  7. My daughter uses the electrolyte drivi mix you show and I bought some. I’m just alittle hesitant to drivi it with sooooo much sodium. She does one packet a day. She told me to try half a day to start. I tried the first few Fri is and it seemed so salty. I bought the raspberry. Do you find it to be a lot of sodium? If you add food sodium rest of the day then I’d think too much. Just wondering as I have chronic migraines and have to be careful. Great list Cyndi. Happy resort shopping.

  8. I like all your finds – I wish I had seen the devotional and the calendars, books before today. I bought mine for the year already and am not happy with them. But it’s such an investment I am sticking with what I have.
    I have done fasting before and ok with it. I was wondering why you are doing it – you didn’t say. I’m not going to read the book – I have too many experts whispering in my ear as it is. But I would like to hear YOUR reasons.
