And it’s curly!

So many of you have walked through my breast cancer journey with me.  I am so grateful for your prayers, your encouraging words, and your efforts to cheer me on on the hard days!

I’m feeling more like myself every day.  Mark and I are eating clean (no preservatives, GMO’s, enriched/refined foods), I’m keeping my weight down, and I’ve started exercising again.

Those were my three assignments from my oncologist: 1) eat nutritionally healthy food, 2) keep my weight down, 3) exercise regularly.  I’m being as obedient as I can be!

The fun part of this season of recovery is my hair!  My hair is coming in so curly! I haven’t had it cut at all since it’s been coming in so I just had to share a pic with you of the “Before–During–After” hair transformation!

    Jill I love that you are so up front about your ordeal. About 15 years ago I began attending Hearts at Home conferences in Michigan. I devoured the workshops, bought the books, and enjoyed a girls weekend once a year. At the time I had young children and the conference was exactly what a needed. Fast forward to now, I have two kids in college and one in high school, and like you, I was diagnosed with cancer. Three and half years ago I was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer. Like you, I used the ordeal to witness to others, to spread knowledge, and to show that you don’t have to talk about cancer in a whisper. As you start to regrow your hair, I am starting my third battle with cancer. I have enjoyed small periods of time away from it all, but unfortunately recurrence is very common for ladies like me. Keep up your efforts and good work. I remember my Hearts days with such fondness.

      Laurie I’m so sorry that you are facing it once again. I love that you are using your challenges for God’s glory. In the midst of your changing health, keep your eyes on your unchanging God! I am adding you to my prayer list.
