A Plant Based Miracle

Angie Ventura is a dear friend of ours. Actually, at this very moment she is staying in our home, hoping to make it back to her house after 6 days of hurricane rain and flooding. She is an energetic, ray of sunshine, and both Meg and I love having her around. She is here and healthy today because of a lifestyle change. Angie has Lupus. She has been battling with the effects of Lupus for over 10 years. Arthritis, Nephritis in her kidneys and Pericarditis in her heart. Last year we sat down to a story that had me almost in tears. I was strong for her at the time, but there was no doubt in my mind that her final year was 2016. She had...

Logically, off the top of your head, one would tend to think of jumping into activism, shaking signs at people, and jolting them awake. These things definitely crossed my mind, but I have come to realize that it takes a multi-facetted approach to create change on a large scale. This is driven by a global truth; - Within any culture, the majority of the people are fearful of change – From fat-loss to historical...

It all started with an elephant

Actually, it all started with a picture of an elephant. For New Years Eve, 2015, my wife Megan and I went to San Jose del Cabo with some very close friends. Because of its location, the baja peninsula remains a very safe place to take a vacation in Mexico. From southern California, as you move down past the US border, the dry hills pick up the ocean on both sides, ending at a point which has become a popular and safe, weekend escape. Unlike many other beach destinations, attractions can also be found inland. Driving away from the ocean, and after losing the sea in your view, you can find yourself in an oasis in the hills. Here, a few, true...
