OrabOraMD – The Mouth Doctor 

I got a chance to try OraMD The Mouth Doctor from Trusted Health Products. OraMD is an all natural liquid 3 in 1 Toothpaste, Mouthwash and Breath Freshener. Now that kind of combo is going to save you some money. I have to say the first time I used it the taste was a little overpowering. The second time my taste buds were ready. I actually got to where I enjoyed the super fresh flavor.  OraMD is made from Almond, Spearmint and Peppermint oils. These contain natural antibacterial properties that help keep your mouth healthy and your breath fresh. What I really like is how smooth and clean my teeth felt after brushing, flossing and rinsing with OraMD. You know how nice your teeth feel after a good cleaning at the dentist. that’s the kind of clean feeling I am talking about.

OraMD uses 100% pure ingredients that are Non-GMO.  I like that it is made right here in the USA and is safe for children over the age of three with no allergies to peppermint spearmint or nuts.

What makes Trusted Health Products different : Their products are made from 100% pure ingredients with absolutely no preservatives, artificial flavors/sweeteners/colorings, synthetic ingredients, gluten, yeast, Trustedbinders, fillers, GMO’s or any other additives of any kind. Your body will recognize our ingredients as beneficial nutrients, not as added chemicals or poisons.

The folks over at Trusted Health Products want  you to know how toget the best possible results from using OraMD, Make sure to follow their simple 5 Step Oral Hygiene Program: BRUSH, FLOSS, RINSE, REFRESH, and FOLLOW UP.

Here are the steps:

· Step 1 – BRUSH twice a day in the morning and evening by dropping 2-5 drops of OraMD on a toothbrush (without toothpaste), and brush normally.


· Step 2 – FLOSS every evening after brushing – more frequently as needed. Get any food particles out from between teeth.

· Step 3 – RINSE using OraMD as mouthwash twice a day: morning and evening. Just put 1-2 drops into an ounce of water, swish and gargle. This is important to kill the bacteria in the entire mouth including the back of the tongue.

· Step 4 – REFRESH Mid-morning, mid-afternoon and as needed: drop 1-2 drops on the tip of your tongue and then roll your tongue around your gum line, teeth and walls of your mouth to kill bacteria and keep breath fresh. Care Instructions: Avoid Eye Contact, Do not swallow, Do not use while pregnant or breastfeeding.


· Step 5 – FOLLOW the oral hygiene instructions provided by your dentist and hygienist, and have regular dental cleanings and checkups.

Taking these simple steps each and every day will empower your mouth to fight bacteria, plaque and tartar, eliminate bad breath, and create an environment that promotes healthy teeth and gums.

Remember, OraMD works much better and costs lesscompared to toothpaste and mouthwash…without the chemicals.

Rumors of Wars

rumorsRumors of Wars with Ben Davies and Mac Powell

An excellent movie all around. Full of action and suspense. Extremely well produced. Actors were great. “Rumors of Wars” shows what is surely soon to come here on Earth. I highly recommend this film. A wonderful way to introduce friends to where we are  heading  in Bible prophecy.

Check Out The Trailer:

Synopsis:  An aspiring journalist, Roxy investigates end-times prophecies and discovers that the events described in the Bible are happening all around her. Years later, Shaw, an agent for the One World government, is hunting down rebels when he discovers her journal in the post-apocalypse rubble. What will he do with this newfound truth?

BarkleyThe Book of Barkley:  Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever

 I want to let y’all know about a book from a new friend of mine, L.B Johnson . The book is entitled  “The Book of Barkley  – Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever” author says it “ is as much about my finding my way back to God and family after living out of a suitcase as a pilot  with that lifestyle, as it is about a dog.  But it is about a wonderful dog, whose stories helped with a lot of healing as I lost both he and my only brother to sudden, aggressive cancers”

Check out this Excerpt from The Book of Barkley

“When the tornado sirens went off, Barkley and I headed for a bathroom
in the interior of the house, with an emergency biscuit, and
some big cushions from the couch to pack around us. Barkley
showed absolutely no concern for the dangers, trying to hump
the cushions as I piled them up. I did not know whether to
laugh or cry, even as he eluded my attempts to save him.
I could hear the little TV on the dresser in the next room. The
cell with rotation was going north of my town, as they often do,
and we emerged from the bathroom, to look out the window
to see if any limbs or lines were down. By midnight, the worst
of the storms had passed, missing my little town as they always
seemed to, splitting north and south of the freeway, leaving in
their wake somewhere, a landscape burned with anguish and
anger. I had all the lights off while Barkley settled onto his
bed, listening as the wind impinged upon the trees, needles of
rain piercing the sodden flowerbeds. Outside, the street lamps
glowed as if underwater, the air weighted with passing rain as
we both fell into sleep.
In the morning I turned on the TV to see about damage, to see
the news of a whole town ravaged, not far away, and the images
came to me unbidden.
Not so many miles away, the rough skin of the earth lay in
ruins, as people climbed from the wreckage to see exactly what
they had been left, voices rising as the wind diminished, the infinite
voices of human fear and anguish of which we all remember.
The first responders arrived, eyes quite wide and filled with
something beyond curiosity or horror. They would do their
work, lifting up a small still form, draped with the dignity of
cloth, lifting it easily as if it had no weight, yet with the movements
that showed that underneath that cloth, was borne the
iron weight of all of earth and grief. But they continued their
task, for between hope and nothing, they would choose hope.
I turned off the news, the pictures still reflected in my eyes. It’s
easy to ask where God was on such days as houses fell, as disasters
rained down, fire in the sky. But I do not ask that perfect
bitter prayer, one that has already been uttered.
I thought of the last picture before the screen went dark, a survivor
bent down looking for anything of value left from their
home. I knew that crouch so very well. I too have assumed
that posture, bent down to the ground on bended knee, not
weighted down by grief, but balanced rather, in the complete
concentration of what may just be the smallest scrap of a life
lived, looking around as if guarding it. For some things need
guarding, not as protection from some four-legged creature,
but those two-legged creatures that move on among both the
protected and the protectors, those that will take what is precious
even from the fallen.
I was thankful to be safely under a roof, where I could sit in
the quiet with my thoughts, as the wind wrapped itself around
the building like a thick dark cloth, a glass of amber liquid in
my hand that tasted of mist and peat, deep love and grief. As
the storms rumbled on eastward, my soul was still, thinking
of the rumbles of change that are occurring in my life Some I
can control, and some I cannot, those things of life and wind,
and death that even our beloved God writes upon our hearts at
birth. Some of these changes can scar our landscape, as we have
seen this night. But some can bring with them a clearing rain,
one that lets you see so much more clearly the blessings around
you after it has passed.”
From the Book of Barkley:  Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever. Outskirts Press 2014
