How to Make Probiotic Kombucha to Support Natural Gut Health



Kombucha. Doesn't the word conjure up visions of an exotic village in the Himalayan mountains? Well, it isn't a far-flung vacation location. Kombucha is, however, the next destination in my journey to a healthy lifestyle.

Silver Sunday


And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV


I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- no snow, in spite of the forecast
- a new round bale for the horses
- hubby's tractor
- going home early
- hope
Silver Sunday

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise;
give thanks to Him and praise His Name.
Psalm 100:4 NIV

A Slice of My Life
