Terri lived by the story of how she went from merely coping to living a life of genuine hope, to a life that has inspired many others who face the most severe challenges. Her book “Forgiven: The Amish School Shooting, a Mother’s Love, and a Story of Remarkable Grace” reveals the circumstances of the terrible happening – plus the heart of a woman who joyfully smiles in the face of adversity.


Terri went to be with Jesus at 11:30pm on Saturday, August 19th, 2017 at the age of 66, following a 13-year battle with cancer. We rejoice that she is experiencing true health and complete wholeness in heaven with her Lord and Savior! Terri lived her life with intentional joy. No matter the depth of adversity that came her way, hope was always waiting to be found in the midst of unfathomable circumstances.

The tenacity of her spirit, forgiveness of her heart, and sweetness of her soul has left an indelible mark on countless people and will continue to live on through the legacy of her testimony and lives she touched. Although she leaves a void that will not be easily filled, we know that this is not the end and her joy awaits us again.

Philippians 4:6-8 (NIV)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

My 90 Year old mother insisted on helping me juice after this last hospital stay! What a precious "Baba"! She has always been so supportive of me in my health ventures.

Juicing is the easiest way to get those nutrients into the system without any work for the body. It builds healthy cells and gives the body the energy to do its healing work.

A single or twin gear juicer is best. Any juicer is better than none!

Terri's Juice

Ok, so my breakfast may not be your usual faire. This is oh so healthy and actually fun to eat. When you are in a fight for your life, it is fun to be creative when life gets boring. I am impressed with heirloom tomatoes this summer and don't want them to go away. This is my fun way of including them in every meal.
