Today, I launched my new vlog series per request of our sisterhood group, Day In The Life of a Stay at Home Wife. I kicked the day off with making a simple version of bulletproof coffee for my sweetie before he headed out the door. It got me thinking, as most things do, about life. We are always looking for ways to upgrade everything and to make it better, healthier, stronger, longer lasting, etc.. This caught my attention... am I also doing this with my faith? Does my faith need to be made more bulletproof? What can I do each and everyday to boost the resilience of my faith and make healthier my relationship with Abba? So, here's the little recipe I came up with to build up a more bulletproof faith walk, and as always, I would love to hear what you think in the comments.
A heaping of the word - It is our life, bread, sword, water... without it we have nothing.
A constant dose of prayer - Keeping in contact with the very One who made us and knowing that He loves to hear from us
A sprinkle of fellowship - Not relying on others to sustain our faith, but making a point to be with people who love the Lord and discuss the things of God.
A helping of service- Finding areas where you can serve others and be the moving parts of the body of our Messiah
I really hope you all enjoyed my first vlog in this series - please let me know what you would like to see in future videos.
(Coffee recipe and benefits below)
Organic black coffee
Grassfed Organic Butter
Organic Coconut Oil
Instead of loading your coffee with carbohydrate-rich milk and sugar, you’re adding in seriously beneficial fats that your brain craves. Instead of adding some creamer, you put in some vitamin-rich butter.
Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for normal growth and play an important role in the prevention and treatment of coronary artery disease, arthritis, inflammation, cancer and high blood pressure. These fats are vital for our health, yet our bodies cannot produce them – meaning we must obtain them from our diet. What’s more, for optimal health it’s imperative that we balance our intake of omega 3 fats with our intake of another essential fatty acid – omega 6. Yet the standard American diet is far too high in omega 6 fats, leading to an unhealthy ratio. Eating grass-fed butter (as opposed to grain-fed) can provide your body with a much needed boost of omega 3s and work towards regaining that healthy balance. (Other good sources of omega 3s include fish, flaxseeds, walnuts and chia seeds.)
