Here is my final review on Kathy Bates book #GettingwellGodsway…..
If you do not want the truth
If you hate honesty
If you do not want to be convicted by God
If you are not ready to face your own personal truths/demons/weaknesses/flaws. Whatever you choose to call them.
You are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Think you MIGHT be ready for real change.
Choose Gods way over the worlds way.
Ready to face demons you did not even know you had.
Feel weak, defeated, beaten down.
Losing or lost your health, strength, endurance.
Want REAL change in your health.
If your spiritual life needs a boost or actually a KICK IN THE BUTT!
Want Gods word to guide your steps to a better/stronger/healthier YOU!
My testimony since 8/20/2019……
I hit this book hard at first. I was and still am ready. I had made many comments, reviews over the first 6 months ALL 100% positive on Kathys’ obedience to the Lord calling her to write this book. This IS my 2nd read thru. That was to devise my own plan of attack. Then I hit my own roadblock! Some truths just hit and you realize you are not ready to change this or that for whatever reason. Mine was and IS coffee. I have given up ALOT of addictions over my lifetime when I am ready or God says NOW! I hit this section of her book oh back before March 2020. I read 4 pages into the whole “coffee dehydration” and found myself skimming vs reading and absorbing. Then I put the book down and have not picked it up till today. I KNEW I was and AM going to have to face this particular one. I am asking for Gods help. Its a tough one for me, for several reasons. However, its NOT the whole book. I was not ready and gave up on ME because of that one section. I dont need to explain the why details. We all have our own crosses to bear. My point here is #TRUTH is not easy to face and we ALL lie to ourselves daily to keep up unhealthy habits because it is “easier”. I felt defeated for alot of reasons, one mainly being #EHS. God has slowly been working with me, breathing LIFE and nurturing back into me. This has given me strength to keep fighting. For the first time in my life I am REALLY beginning to understand the whole “our bodies are Gods temple” concept. Not a familiar concept for being survivor of sexual abuse whom has had a hate relationship with my body that I feel failed me early on. That concept IS CHANGING. God has to work with me in a backwards fashion. He gave me life, passion, interests, joy again and NOW I WANT my body to be able to maintain the things that bring me JOY. I can’t do that if I give up on building a strong temple for the Lord. If I give up on me, I give up on him. He truly has inspired me again to this point thru nature watching and gardening. Kathy and I have said numerous times YOU HAVE to step back from her book to just absorb the magnitude of TRUTH that is entailed in the content. Here is my FINAL THOUGHT! There has been 3 pivotal times in my life that were life changing, other than the birth of all my kiddos. 1990 to sober up, met the best Therapist that saved my life. 2014 a friend that educated me on healthier eating, more natural remedies that took me off of 8 of 12 medications due to a rare mass. 2019 #GWGW worked in conjunction with the #makethemaware mission God put me o in 2013. Change ur perspective and change will come but you have to be willing to LOVE YOURSELF enough. Pain has a purpose, make it count. Thank YOU again Kathy! You are an angel in disguise. Fight like a warrior sister and a true inspiration to me and many others. I feel very blessed to have the privilege of meeting you virtually. 💜 I love ya lady!

Here’s my reply comment to her Facebook post:

My dear sweet Carla My Mom was raised on coffee; sat on grandpa’s knees and drank from his cup since she was about 4; she’s 84 now. I’ve told her several times since living with her that she doesn’t drink enough water and coffee is the first thing she puts to her lips. Sleep is very dehydrating as it’s an 8-hour stretch with no water and many of us breathe with our mouths open at night. A cup of coffee removes the equivalent of 12 servings of water from the body, not to mention that it acidifies our body and burns up minerals. It’s not netural in impact on the body.  An 8-ounce cup of Coke/soft drink removes 32 servings of water. So the first thing we should do in the morning is replenish our water and inland sea minerals added to the water is an easy way to do that.

Here we are in the beautiful Ozark mountains and just moved here which was a big deal to move 14 hours from Austin, TX.  We were outside one morning and Mom suddenly said she didn’t feel well. We came inside and I noted that her left eye was angled in about 20 degrees towards her nose which explained her distorted vision. I immediately thought she might be having a stroke.  I said “Mom I’ve been meaning to talk to you about your water intake…” as I was making her what my clients nicknamed “Kathy’s holy water.” I gave her about 16 ounces of it and within 5 minutes her eye went back into proper alignment and her distorted vision corrected. I again explained the coffee dehydration issue and stressed the body’s NEED for water. A few weeks later I noticed that she had not been making her morning coffee and was shocked to find that she stopped drinking it cold turkey that day and had started drinking water in a committed intentioned way.  I WAS AMAZED but she said “I didn’t move to this beautiful place to end up in a bed with someone wiping drool from my chin and changing my diapers!” BAM…

I’ve always said “People change when they get tired of suffering but you’re doing this as a response to your love for GOD. I know you’re hard on yourself and learning to love yourself but I want you to know that you need to be very proud of the fact that you have taken this book in at such an intense HONEST level and allowed it to CONFRONT you. Many have done that but most people won’t go to the depths you have.

Please PM me your address as I want to send you the coffee substitute that Mom and I drink and we/she loves it. Leila BW turned me on to it after she read the book and stopped drinking coffee. It’s roasted dandelion root and roasted chicory mixed together. We put it in a tea strainer and pour hot water over it and steep it like tea for a few minutes. We add whipping cream, not half and half, and it’s so close to the coffee that it satisfies the desire. It also supports liver health, kills cancer cells, and has prebiotics in it… I’m thinking it may be time to start a podcast but I’m trying to find the will to kick it off. I need to do a bunch of little things to hopefully monetize the efforts. It heals my soul to see this book that was written at GREAT personal costs be such a force in someone’s life. I’m honored. Please pm me your mailing address.
