On Eagle’s Wings….

Things are quickly coming to a close for me at Hawthorn University. I recently finished my final course. Now, as I approach my final exam and ultimately begin writing my thesis, I decided to take a break from my usual daily and weekly posts. I’d like to honor this point in my life with some songs that inspire me. I chose songs which may seem unusual to you, but which remind me of where I am and where I need to go.

I Can See Clearly Now By: Anne Murray

Times Of Your Life By: Paul Anka

Unstoppable By: Rascal Flatts

On Eagle’s Wings By: Michael Joncas

Closing thoughts

The final song, ON EAGLE’S WINGS, is a Catholic hymn. It was always a favorite of mine as a teen attending a Catholic high school. As I fear the future, the unknown, It reminds me to trust the process, to trust in God. It reminds me that God carries us through the difficult and challenging times in our life. If I trust my intuition, pray, meditate and really listen to what he has to say, with my heart, the future won’t be so scary.

I’ll be away from my blog for the next 3 weeks.

I wanted to let you know that this will be my one and only post this week and for the next three weeks. Do to the seriousness of my upcoming test, I decided to step away from my blog and devote all my time to preparing for my exam.

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. 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.
