Food Allergens Causing Strife? ~Victory over Adversity~ 2

You want us to stopping eating all gluten and dairy? Are you crazy I have 3 kids under 5 and they need their milk! I was a dairy farmer as a child, milk couldn’t be bad could it? And my BIG Italian family is expecting me to cook Thanksgiving dinner in less than 3 weeks. I can’t just wish everything gluten free.

When our child’s neurologist and later their developmental pediatrician strongly recommended we cut out a lengthy list of foods I didn’t understand how this could change a child’s behavior, learning, or even their basic health other than weight. I had a narrow view on how food impacts a person’s life. I now realize for my child changing their food was a foundational need in their life. Even to this day 13 years later!

Episode 2, Food Allergens Causing Strife?

 

Introduction~ Victory over Adversity~ 1

Welcome my friends! I am excited to be starting on this podcasting adventure with you!

Just the facts ma’am… My name is Heather Laurie. I have a wonderful husband Chris Laurie. We have 5 children and 3 angels.

I have homeschooled our children through their entire education, K through graduation. Right now we are outnumbered by pre-teens and teens but loving this phase in life.

When Chris and I met and fell in love in boot camp we were not saved. As we faced the stillbirth of our second child a beautiful daughter we began searching for God in a meaningful way. Through that harsh adversity we were saved. We also found a church community and a homeschooling community. The Lord was there waiting for us to call out and then He blessed us abundantly.. to this day those blessings continue all my children have a real and meaningful relationship with God. In part due to our loss of precious Sarah.

I know what it is like to homeschool with children that have special needs. Thus my blog/speaking/writing life at specialneedshomeschooling.com I also know what it is like to be mom with a chronic illness. We have a disease called mitochondrial disease and it affects the kids and I. There is no cure or treatment at this time. There is HOPE!

My friends I have been in hospice and spent months in the hospital. I have watched my child struggle with the simplest things like colors and regressed to ‘lose’ the alphabet 3 times. I have also watched those same lovely children become young adults and far exceed doctor’s statistics.

My children have given their heart and soul to Jesus. Sure we struggle and life can be tough while going through storms but I know there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I know together we can knit a community together that supports and encourages us on to be stronger and rely upon the Lord for Victory!
