Welcome to This Joyous Journey! My name is Brianna and I am a wife, mother to 2 energetic boys and 1 angel baby, and a licensed clinical social worker by profession. I love learning, sharing my story and inspiring others! I also enjoy spending as much quality time with my family as I can and attempting to create joy and balance in every aspect of this journey of life I am privileged to be a part of! Areas of my life I make a priority include creating nutritious meals and a healthy lifestyle for my family, attempting to maintain some sort of organization and balance in our home, running, learning as much as I can about healthy living, and of course my newest adventure with blogging. I would LOVE for you to come along on this journey with me!
In 2007, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Ulcerative Colitis, and was told by doctors that life as I knew it would never be the same, that diet and lifestyle had nothing to do with healing my body, and that I would need to be on medication for the rest of my life. After recovering from the initial shock of this message, I immediately knew I had a choice to make and I resolved then and there that I would not accept this grim prognosis and that there had to be another option.
In the months that followed my diagnosis, I began researching non-stop, and eventually embraced a drastic lifestyle change that has since brought healing to my body, mind and spirit. This journey that I have been on has changed my life, and I am passionate about sharing what I have learned and continue to learn with others. It is my hope that I can share about this journey I am on, in all aspects as they relate to healthy living, family and parenting, emotional well being, and ultimately how to balance it all – a process I work on every day!
I would love to have you stay for awhile – read, comment, and share!
