Your trials did not come to punish you, but to awaken you. ~ Paramahansa Yogananda

Often in our lives we encounter road blocks, times of trial and difficulty in our lives. Many times, we look to lay blame for these times, asking

“Why did God do this to me?”


we need to look for the lesson,

we need to ask…

“What can I learn from this problem?” …

“What lesson is this meant to teach me?” …

“How can this situation make me a better person?”…

“How will this situation bring me closer to God?”

This search, for the lesson,

will lead to healing and a spiritual awakening.

(Something I’ve personally experienced.)

About Tamara Hoerner (1268 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
