I have to say I enjoy teaching these lessons to you as much as I enjoyed it when I participated in TAFYH myself. When I get to hear your ah-ha's and your amazement at all you are learning, it brings me such happiness in being able to bring a "new way of thinking about health" to you and your family. There is so much valuable life saving information in these lessons and one has to go over them many times, to imprint it in your brain, so you are able to share and pass it on to others. When you speak to others about what you are learning, you know it well and can relay that information to them properly, their confidence and trust in you begins to grow. Many people are out there needing and wanting this information. We are each in contact with different people and there are lives that you are meant to touch with the knowledge you have acquired from this program. I believe in the saying "There are no accidents" and I believe it is not an accident at all that you have participated in this program. In one way or another, you are going to touch the lives of others with this education you have received.
When I first took TAFYH, I joined up as support for my cousin who was battling cancer. I remember listening to Donna's radio talk show on CKLQ and when I heard, no grains, no sugar, and no dairy, my thoughts were, "Oh my gosh, what does a person eat! That totally sucks!" I was hesitant to start and scared as well cause I thought how am I going to be able to learn a whole different way of eating when I can barely get supper made some days with normal ingredients! I don't have time to learn how to eat differently! You know, all the self talk that sabotages ones efforts at any attempt to change. If it wasn't for Aaron pushing me a bit to support my cousin, (cause the thought did go through my head that she would be fine on her own!), I'm not sure if I would have taken the plunge, truth be told. Also looking back, it's quite funny cause he hired a guy full time because since I wouldn't be eating very much, I would probably be too weak to do chores. Oh, that is too funny!!! Progressing with TAFYH, I began having more energy that I probably every had in my life and for the first time was getting weight off without a huge struggle and enjoying it! Looking back, I know for me TAFYH was meant to be and has been one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. It stirred a passion in me that I had lingering for quite a while for the natural side of things and gave me the education and tools, with the BSQ, to begin helping others. Now, I am pursuing this full time by taking more courses and learning from others. My future goal is that we will be getting out of dairy because we'll be so busy helping others, there'll be no time to milk the cows :)
