Psalm 33:15...He fashions
their hearts individually; He considers all their works.
Psalm 139 ... "O Lord, You
have examined my heart and You know
everything about me. You know when I sit
down or stand up. You know my thoughts
even when I’m far away. You see me when
I travel and when I rest at home. You
know everything I do. You know what I am
going to say even before I say it,
Lord. You go before me and follow
me. You place your hand of blessing on
my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful
for me, too great for me to understand!
I can never escape from Your Spirit!
I can never get away from your presence!
If I go up to Heaven, You are there; if I go
down to the grave, You are there. If I
ride the wings of the morning, if I
dwell by the farthest oceans, even there
Your hand will guide me, and Your
strength will support me. I could ask
the darkness to hide me and the light
around me to become night— but even in darkness I cannot hide from You. To You the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to You.
You made all the delicate,
inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank You for making me so wonderfully
complex! Your workmanship is
marvelous—how well I know it. You
watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in
the dark of the womb. You saw me before
I was born. Every day of my life was
recorded in Your book. Every moment was
laid out before a single day had passed.
How precious are Your
thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be
numbered! I can’t even count them; they
outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, You are still with me! ...
Search me, O God, and know my
heart; test me and know my anxious
thoughts. Point out anything in me that
offends You, and lead me along the path
of everlasting life."
Whether going through the
storm, or the storm has passed, it's never too late for new beginnings! Along with Pastoral Counseling, Life Coaching
is also available. In all our years,
thanks to God's great grace and mercy, we have never turned anyone away who
needed Godly Counsel. We do not charge for our services. Freely we have received, freely we give. If you would like to help provide for those in need, please
consider giving an offering today. Thank
James 1:27 ... Pure and
undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their
distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
P. S. If you have never received a "Father's Blessing," open this link:
"Father's Blessing" Take a moment to listen and receive this blessing as your own, in Jesus name, Amen.

We at Individually Fashioned believe that good health matters!
we highly recommend personal quiet time, proper diet, weight
management, daily exercise, and rest, be your first order for healthy
start with a good night's sleep. Did you know that the proper amount of
sleep provides the body, mind and spirit with renewal and restoration?
When we choose to turn off the cell phone, laptop, and/or television, we
are choosing rest and renewal for our body, mind and spirit.
Another basic addition to our health is Walking!
It is loaded with benefits:
circulation, increased metabolism, production of new cells, 'happy'
endorphins. Walking also helps to build bone. If able, start with a
minimum of 20 minutes a day. If not, start with 5; then increase to 10
and so on ... If you wait 20 minutes after your meal and exercise 20
minutes, you will burn twice the calories. This increases your
metabolism. Hence, walking every day promotes many benefits for you and
your well-being. I highly recommend purchasing a Fitbit Charge HR
to track your steps, sleep, and BPM (beats per minute) throughout each
day. The heart association recommends 10,000 steps a day. If you have trouble getting those steps in during rainy or snowy weather, walk while listening to a favourite program,. Or call family or friends to catch up. You'll be surprised how quickly those steps add up! Rebounding
is a great alternative for those who find walking difficult. I have
been rebounding since 1985 when my husband bought a mini trampoline for
me in hopes that it would help my circulation (varicosities since age
15). Rebounding does wonders for me. I've used a combo of walking and
rebounding for years. I also use it as an easy way to "add" to my daily
steps. Click here for a list of 33 benefits to Rebounding.
If your life requires a lot of travel, pack a jump rope
in your suitcase ... 10 minutes a day is all that's needed to keep your
engine running well. As you develop your skills jumping forwards,
include jumping backwards too for it greatly enhances correct posture.
Stretching, swimming and water exercise
decrease arthritic and back pain. If you are unable to do a lot of
exercises due to a low back pain, building the core is still necessary.
Try the Abdoer Twist Beginner
stretches which enable the user to build the core without having to do
sit-ups or similar exercises that could re-injure the low back. You can
purchase the Abdoer Twist used; or order a new one on: Amazon Smile Abdoer Twist Delete
alcohol* and smoking (marijuana** included), all known to cause
cancer.* Decrease the fats and sugars. (Did you know that sugar acts
like glue in your system, gumming up the works? It is also believed to
cause inflammation which causes pain! And most recently, cancer is known
to feed off of sugar!) I have discovered a plant called Stevia also sold as Truvia. It comes granulated, or you can try it in liquid form: Sweet Drops
the SODIUM - 1500 mg. a day is allowed. Read the labels! Most processed
foods are way over this allowance. There is sodium in many foods - even
eggs, a good source of protein has a modest 60 mg. of sodium. Increase
potassium. Potassium offsets the Sodium - it's like a dance! If
you've had too much sodium, drink lots of water, eat a banana, tomato,
prunes, etc. Best advice ... don't eat out, don't eat frozen meals,
soups, etc. Even delicious Costco rotisserie chickens are injected with
SODIUM! Hence, do your own cooking w/organic, non-GMO real food.
Lowering, and keeping your weight down provides many benefits:
lowers the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and high blood
pressure. Keeping your weight in check can also lower the risk of many
different cancers, including breast, colon, kidney, pancreas, and
esophagus. Keeping your weight down also lessens the strain on your
feet, ankles, knees and hip joints. Every pound you lose takes 4 pounds
of pressure off the knees. For most, every 5 lbs. you lose, drops your
blood pressure too. For your convenience, click here:
Add colour to your meals with fruits and vegetables:
Green, Red,Purple,Blue, Orange, and Yellow!
every day will lower your cholesterol. Add flax, and chia seeds to it
for Omega-3. Drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water throughout the day will
also increase regularity, prevent dehydration and decrease wrinkles.
are just a few common sense principles available for living a healthy
and enjoyable lifestyle. We encourage you to begin anew ...it's never
too late to start treating yourself well!
also highly recommend "Isotonix" supplements*** especially OPC-3
anti-oxidants each day for prevention of illness! To learn more, click
in my 70's, I take Opc-3 & Multivitamin 50+ daily. OPC-3 is an
amazing anti-oxidant! Before discovering it in 2007, I was plagued with
repeated sinus infections that required 2 rounds of Levaquin to knock it
out; only to get sick again a week later! It was never-ending! A friend
recommended that I try OPC-3 and I've had amazing health ever since! I
recommend it for all ages. If you're under 50, along with the OPC-3, I
suggest adding the
Isotonix Multivitamin, Advanced B, and/or Calcium
Plus - 4-pack.
If you're over 50, I recommend switching to "Isotonix Multivitamin Fifty Plus"
May God bless you in every way! .
Expecting great things for you,
[*** Isotonic Video
Isotonic means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical
resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the
body have a certain concentration, referred to as osmotic pressure. The
body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent
maintenance of body tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and
used in the body’s metabolism, it must be transported in an isotonic
dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means
that the body has less work to do in obtaining maximum absorption. The
isotonic state of the suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into
the small intestine and be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. With
Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption
of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.]

take control of your life, and overcome obstacles and challenges, to
create the life of your dreams." R. Wilson, Paralegal, CA
the end of every session I’ve had with Elizabeth Marie I’ve left
feeling listened to, understood and encouraged. Elizabeth Marie has a
gift for turning any negative into a positive and has demonstrated, in
her own life, the principle that any obstacle can be overcome. Her
diverse experiences and natural intuitiveness give her the ability to
connect at a heart level with all kinds of people. I hold her in high
regard as a woman of character and integrity, and have benefited from
her wisdom on many occasions." Kyra Goldman, Singer/Songwriter, GA
"Betty is an intuitive, gifted coach. She has a deep relationship with
God and a wealth of experience working with people. She asked insightful
and challenging questions, always allowing me to express myself
completely. Her vision statement for me was a beautiful and accurate
reflection of everything I shared with her. She will be a blessing for
anyone she coaches." P. Koehler, MI
Betty is one of the most compassionate and loving individuals I know.
For years, she has encouraged, inspired, and helped keep me on the path
to fulfilling my destiny and purpose. Each session I spend with her, I
leave feeling like I have more clarity, courage, and the drive to take
on the challenges this life sometimes brings. With her spirit of joy
and love, I leave feeling like a ton of bricks has been lifted from my
shoulders. Her insight and depth of wisdom are astonishing. Elizabeth
Marie's deep relationship with God is the key element that allows her to
see and touch parts of your soul not many can. She is one who knows how
to listen and also ask the kind of questions that cut straight and
direct to the problem or question that may be stumbling you. She also
knows how to empower the individual she is counseling so at the end of
each session YOU feel like the one who can take any mountain. Her
personality is engaging and her outlook is always positive and
intelligent. With all of this that I have personally experienced in
relationship with Elizabeth Marie it is hard to believe that she is
anything but highly effective in helping people focus, move forward, and
improve in their life, relationships, dreams and goals. Danielle M.

Combo: Coaching & Prayer Counseling
have known Betty for over 8 years now, and she has always
been an encouragement in my life. Recently while going through a
frustrating season with work and school, I contacted her to help me get
some positive direction. I was ready to quit my job; which I could not
afford to do, and I was feeling so hopeless about my future. My friends
would confront me about being negative, and I realized that I needed to
stop wandering around aimlessly, and do something positive for myself.
Elizabeth Marie suggested that we work through the life coach sessions
and I began to see an immediate change in my life.
started to form a vision in my mind and heart for the things that I
want to accomplish in life and how to become the woman I want to be. The
greatest thing I have learned through this all is that I need to take
care of myself. By learning how to see myself as a valuable person with
goals and gifts to offer others, I’ve gained the confidence that I am
worth taking care of. I have had friends comment on the positive changes
they see in me, and now I am excited and hopeful about what the future
has to offer. Kristine Ferreira, College Student, Waitress, CA
A new client’s first impression: At first, I was hesitant. I am not known to open up easily. However, you made me feel so comfortable that I found myself very relaxed and surprisingly able to go to those deep places that had been hidden in my heart for decades. Thank you so much. K. O., High School Counselor
