About Me!

Wednesday, July 20, 2016


Hello hello hello wonderful readers....family....friends!!!

Things are still under construction but I have learned there is no time like the present to just take the plunge sometimes with change...with transitions....

I have learned to not try to have everything "perfectly" in place because perfection is not real...and it's not organic!  Perfection leaves no room for growth...for change...for vulnerability.

Perfection tends to not take risks...to actually never start something because it's not PERFECTLY put into place!

So with that I give you the new location of....

Frick Writes: A Mind Body Soul Journey!

Please follow the link above or below....save the new address....the new location....subscribe....mark it down....share....


Swing on over there now and read today's posting!

Thank you my dear wonderful readers....family....friends for all your amazing encouragement....support....and joining me in this journey of life!  

I look forward to hearing what you have to say about the changes!

Many blessings and hugs,

Wednesday's wrap up...

It's been fun and exciting sharing this last week about all the great opportunities I have to write each day....to share with others each day...whether here on this blog....on Facebook in any of the groups....someone I encounter in the store....or writing in my journal each morning and each night....

I have grown so much this year with learning and disciplining myself to write each day....that was my goal my desire.   I now have some other amazing goals and desires I am working on with developing some courses....preparing for some speaking opportunities....and teaching mind body soul wellness classes with and through essential oils.  I am really excited about all these new adventures....especially with being a wellness advocate.

I love how I am going to be able to share classes or one on one about women's health, biblical history of oils, self care, home care, cooking with oils, brain health, and so many more topics.

I am starting my darling daughters lessons back up in a few weeks which also is an important part of my life and focus.

Thus I hope this helps explain my reasoning for the transition to a once a week posting.  I pondered which day I really wanted to have as my consistent day.....and it came back over and over WEDNESDAY. 

I live and breath sharing with others about wellness in health: mind, body, and soul....AND I am passionate about women feeling and know they are warriors, wonderful.  And my darling daughter loves texting her daddy and asking him on Wednesdays...."Hey what day is it!?"....and then imitating that commercial with the camel...."hump day"....

Who doesn't need a midweek refresher reminding you the week is halfway to the weekend. 
Who doesn't need a bit of advice and support about their healthy WELLNESS choices midweek to stay the course through the weekend.
Who doesn't need a bit of encouragement with their wonderful warrior woman self love, self care, self awareness!

Here is to WEDNESDAY'S being WONDERFULLY filled with...

Ah heck the Wednesday is also good for the core questions of writing about something: who, what, where, when, why!

What is a transition you are currently in!?  Sit for a moment today to pray about it...reflect on it...journal about it....enjoy it!

Many hugs and blessings dear readers....family....friends.....

Amarillo Mind Body Soul Wellness Directory.....

AMARILLO MIND BODY SOUL WELLNESS DIRECTORY DISCUSSION GROUP was created to generate discussion of WELLNESS professionals in the Amarillo area that take a holistic and functional medicine approach to health!  This discussion group helps with adding names to the actual DIRECTORY.

This topic has always been important to me but it became a huge front burner in my life when I was diagnosed last year with Hoshimoto's/Hypothyroidism.   I needed to know there were doctors who I could turn to that truly understand that I am more than just a "part"....a disease....a diagnosis....

I KNEW there had to be some diamonds in this tumbleweed terrain.  So with the help of some amazing friends...and contacts....we were able to create a list of doctors and professionals who dedicate their life...their careers....to healing people not bandaging.....

Thus I spend probably about 2 or 3 days a month updating the actual DIRECTORY in hopes that it eventually gets large enough for us to create a printed out one to have available in these professionals offices.

Are your gifts or talents needed in an area you are passionate about locally!?  Sit with this...pray about this...write about this....then do something about this!!

Many hugs and blessings dear readers...family....friends....

Whole Body Health...

We have become disconnected in what TRUE HEALTH is all about!  In a way I believe conventional doctors have been duped and brainwashed in thinking they know all the answers....and/or the problem is just one area (physical)....and if it is your knee hurting then it is related to the knee....if your lab work on your thyroid says your "normal" well then you are normal....and it's all in your head.

WE ARE DISCONNECTED in understanding WHOLE BODY HEALTH is how we are connected MIND BODY SOUL!

This is why I am passionate about the Facebook group WHOLE BODY HEALTH!  I probably post to this group about as much as I write here...if not more!  God created us with an amazingly complex system...yet it is also simple.  Simple in if we would JUST stay connected to HIM and in-tuned to what HE is telling us through our body we would always be at ease.

So what link is missing with your health!?  Mind!? Body?! Soul!?  Take a moment today to reflect...pray....journal about it!

Many blessings dear readers....family....friends....

Dynamic Daughters....

The DYNAMIC DAUGHTERS Facebook group is near and dear to me because it is about raising a daughter!

We live in a world...a time...where I pray continually for the spiritual and physical well being of my daughter. 

Don't get me wrong...I don't believe it is all doom and gloom but I am also a realist in that there is some serious disorder out there...some serious perversions of right and wrong....thus sharing and connecting with other parents to learn...empower....encourage each other about raising daughters today is very important.

Today....think....reflect....pray...journal about how you are overcoming any fears about raising a child with so much chaos around us.  Can you see the light?!  Because there is some amazing light out there....maybe you just need to connect with the right group to help with that light!

Many blessings and hugs dear readers....family...friends....

Fishing for Faith...

I was thinking about how yesterday I shared with you all one of the Facebook groups I write, share, and learn from.....and I realized I wanted to feature each group.  One a day....for the next....ah who knows how many groups....lol.....   No but seriously.  I want to share with you other places I write and why. 

When I created the Facebook group Fishing for Faith, it was actually by a different name and it was a group specific to the college students I was working with at the time.  Then as I left campus ministry and started doing even more writing and pursuing networking of people and faith.....it became a place for sharing ways to create ripples in our faith....to cast our nets.....and to evangelize!

Thus FISHING FOR FAITH....is all about how can we live out what Christ asked of Peter....to be FISHERS OF MEN!

Take a moment today to pray....reflect....write about how you are living out your faith!?  How are you being a fisher of men!?  How are you evangelizing and being an intentional disciple for Christ!?

Many hugs and blessings dear readers...family....friends...

Thriving Thyroid!

There IS SO MUCH information out there about health and nutrition.  Trying to weed out what is right for YOU....your unique being is sometimes daunting....overwhelming.....and you just want to throw up your hands!

But instead of viewing it as an all or nothing sort of deal.....I have found that my nutritional health needs are no different than my spiritual health needs...IT IS A JOURNEY....A PROCESS! 

I have also discovered I am my strongest when I am caring for my needs so I can then help others figure out their needs!

This is why I started started several different Facebook groups.  Each of them cover different topics and needs.  It has been wonderful being able to share with others different ways to grow and develop stronger "muscles" in faith, nutrition, parenting, eating out, thyroid...and more....

Thus today I feature the Facebook group:  THRIVING THYROID!

This is where I share my own journey of thriving with Hoshimoto's/Hypothyroidism. I share things like the AIP diet....different symptoms a person would not think about that are caused by the thyroid.....how to continue to learn and grow....and so much more.   It's a place where everyone who is part of the group can ask questions....give input.....support.....and so much more! 

Soooo....if you struggle with a thyroid condition....know someone who does.....or just want to learn more about the importance of the thyroid.....then check out THRIVING THYROID.

Take a moment today to reflect on an area in your life you would like to THRIVE more in.  Pray about it....write about it.....live it!

Many hugs and blessings dear readers...family....friends...

Essential Oils 101

Yay!  I'm so excited!  Tomorrow I am finally taking that leap to start teaching the amazing benefits and support we are able to experience with essential oils!

I fell in love with essential oils about 5 years ago!  I have literally tried all brands! 

So why have I decided to finally start pursuing teaching and sharing about essential oils?!

Because I see their value...their purpose...their amazing support in ALL aspects of life: mind body soul!

I see how they enhance all aspects of my furthering my sharing and teaching about self love and mind body soul life coaching.  

I see how if someone wants better cleaning supply choices....oils will help. 

I see how if a person is struggling with their physical health....oils will support what they are doing. 

I see how as I start taking this new chapter of my life of helping others/women/girls through many mind body soul/ self love coaching aspects of life there is a place for oils in all of it!

I feel so blessed to be able to share with others.  

I'm not worried it will take away from family because I look at it as essential oils have actually given our family the gift of truly slowing down and being mindful of choices.  

Take a moment today to reflect....pray...journal about what in your life supports all aspects of your life?  Mind body soul?!

Many hugs and blessings dear readers...family...friends..

Isn't amazing how much we take our freedoms for granted!

We get so caught up in all the hustle and bustle of DOING DOING DOING....we forget to reflect and be in a moment.

Yesterday we enjoyed a fabulous evening with some friends.  We tailgated at a store parking lot so we could watch the fireworks across the way at the park....and avoid the crazy crowd over there!

It was refreshing....beautiful....and free!

It felt free to just BE with friends....AND NOT FEEL like I was suppose to be on my phone checking this or that....it felt free to visit and fellowship face to face with a friend and have that human contact!

It felt FREE to remember to continue to prioritize my days based on what is my vocation, calling, gifts, talents....   And making sure I do things that spark JOY.....

We need to remember to LIVE IN THE MOMENT....that's how our freedoms were won.....IN THE MOMENT!  It wasn't put off because social media was more important to check....it wasn't put off because a favorite show was coming on....it wasn't put off because pursuing careers were priority.....FREEDOM WAS WON....because of passion....being present....seeing a need and I dare to say finding JOY in the challenge to make things better for not only their generation but generations to come!

Today....sit....reflect....pray....write....about what does freedom mean to you!

Many hugs and blessings my dear readers.....family....friends....

Happy 4th of July!!!

Psalm 119:45
I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts. (NIV)

Luke 4:18-19
The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to release the oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.

John 8:32
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (NIV)

Which scripture resonates for you on this day....a day we are able to celebrate our freedoms!?
Take the moment to reflect....pray...write about it!

Have a very blessed day my dear readers....family...friends...

Patience with Projects...

House projects can be exhausting.....but sooo rewarding!

They really can be about our mind body soul experience!

I have had to practice not only patience but truly reflect and appreciate how wonderful my hubby is is for taking the time to help us do things for our home to make it healthier with hard wood floor instead of carpet.  Thus allowing all of us to have better immune systems with no hidden allergens captured in the flooring.

But better than that I have been able to actually work through lots of soul and spiritual stuff because of this house project.

Have you ever thought about how a house project can help you grow in your faith!?  Take a moment today to reflect on that ...pray about it...write about it!

Hugs and prayers dear readers....family...friends....
