I am a wife & mom to 3 furry kids. I am an RN:Holistic. I research, write & teach about the following: Bible/Health&Nutrition/ColonHealth. I’m a passionista & a purveyor of traditional Christian values, of whole & living foods-mainly plants, & plant based medicine, and of Fine Art/Silver/Pearls.

There’s meaning in a name! Our christian lives are compared to pearls…many irritants placed one on top of the other to form us into the likeness of Christ…it wasn’t until later in life that I found out that “Rita” means “like a pearl”…and Anne means “full of grace”.


Behold, I have given you every seed bearing herb, which is upon the surface of the entire earth, and every tree that has seed bearing fruit; it will be yours for food. ~ Genesis 1:29
“Let thy food be thy medicine.” ~ Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine.
"Eat food ...not to much, and mostly plants" ~ Michael Pollan
