Up is down, right is wrong...when will it end? As an avid bibliophile📚 and believer in our Constitutional rights🇺🇸, this simultaneously breaks my heart and inflames it.
I read To Kill a Mockingbird, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Of Mice and Men, The Cay, and Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry all when I was younger. They made an impact on me... each one a little differently... but ALL of them adding to lessons in empathy and history as it related to the times they were written in.

I stand for truth and freedom and loving one another. I stand against cancel culture...... do you?
Hey there....thanks for stopping by! This is me (Liz James)... an eclectic mixture of holistic (and organic) farmgirl meets pharmacist. It's a synergy that works well as I speak truths and dissect fact from fiction. If you're looking for healthier living options, you've come to the right place!
