Fast forward several years to 2019. We have 2 high school graduates, one of which is married, a Junior and a 3rd grader. The kids were growing up way too quickly and moving on with their lives. Life sure has a way of changing in a blink of an eye.
February of that year I attended a conference and was totally floored by the amount of information I heard on nutrition, supplements, and holistic health. That lit the spark in me. My nutrition and wellness journey had begun. I started reading all sorts of books on natural health, vitamins, and nutrition. I looked into health coaching courses. I took several free online classes on nutrition, vitamins and minerals, and even anatomy. I wanted to learn all I could and couldn’t get enough. My mom was suffering from some health issues that weren’t being resolved so that was another reason for the quest for knowledge.
I found a place to take classes in a field that had my heart. It was an intro to functional nutrition. So much information was crammed into one month of learning. I loved it! After I completed the individual course, I had the opportunity to take the full 9-months. My functional nutrition education was taking place and I was so grateful! My mom had been diagnosed with Adrenal Cancer and I was putting into practice what I had learned.
I completed my final exam to become a Certified Functional Nutrition Counselor in May of 2021. But the learning hasn’t stopped. I will continue to learn and grow as a Functional Nutrition Counselor. I will earn more certifications in this field and expand my expertise when the time is right.
God never ceases to amaze me with how he can work our plans into His plan. My goals at the beginning of this journey has morphed and changed several times. All of which was by God’s hand. His direction for my life has now become what I have named “Believe Well Consulting”!
