Hi Joanna - I just wanted to take some time to thank you as well as give God some praise!!
Tomorrow with mark one month since Caroline and I came to your house for an informational/nutritional counseling session.
I set up the appointment so Caroline could meet with you while she was home on winter break but I think God had other plans ~ plans that were for me. Plans for me to learn and plans for me to finally listen.
As you know, I've had a crazy addiction to Diet Pepsi for 15+ years and while I've heard you talk many times about aspartame, how drinking diet drinks was like drinking formaldehyde and the many dangers of it, I still continued to drink it!
Well, after that particular session with you as well as the mighty prayer you prayed over me, I'm happy to say that I've been diet soda free for one month!! Praise God for that as well all of the other changes that you've helped me make.
Since then, I've purchased nothing but organic fruits and veggies, been drinking Bragg's vinegar daily, been using Celtic Sea Salt and the Garden of Life Coconut Oil for many many things and started drinking water ~ just to name a few.
These changes have led to several things....one, I feel a lot better and have more energy, two, my parents have started to convert over and make better choices as well (which makes me very happy) and three, I believe God's timing is so perfect that this foundation helped prepare me for the 21 day fast the church has now called us to do.
I thank you Joanna for many things......I thank you for sharing your gift, I thank you for always being available to answer any questions and I thank you for caring about God's people like you do.
Much love to you, my Sister in Christ!!

TESTIMONY of Deliverance from Diet Sodas~ by Debbie Hester: " I always thought I was doing well for my body and being healthy by drinking diet sodas. I have been drinking diet sodas for over twenty years. I attended the Super- Naturally Healthy Families presentation conducted by Joanna Faillace on March 6th at New Life Community Church in Louisa, VA. I found out different that day with God’s guidance through his servant, Joanna. Joanna presented her Super-Naturally Healthy Ministry by talking about how we can make our bodies healthy and strong as well as our families by using the whole foods God created. Many of the foods that we eat/drink today are made with preservatives, dyes, artificial sweeteners, etc. that is not good for us. She reminded us that our bodies are God’s temple. Wow, I thought with what Joanna was presenting and my habits that God was speaking directly to me! Then as she was making her Powerhouse Smoothie she exclaimed that diet sodas were not good for us. Definitely then I saw a red flag that God was laying this on my heart. Joanna explained with the ingredients that are in diet sodas our bodies break them down into formaldehyde. It was sickening when I heard that. To think what I have been doing to my body for so long. I had the urge to change and decided I wanted to do something about it. After her presentation and the wonderful luncheon all with the whole organic foods I was able to speak with Joanna personally. I told her about my diet soda addiction and how long I had been drinking them. She asked me if it was my wish to stop drinking them. I explained that after hearing her presentation that it was my desire to stop drinking diet sodas. She prayed with me and asked for God to deliver me from this addiction and to take away any cravings I would have for them. I really felt in my heart God’s deliverance from this addiction. To God’s glory I have not had any diet sodas since that day and do not have cravings for them! Hallelujah! Praise God! The first week without diet drinks was extremely hard on my body as I was going through withdrawals from not drinking them. I felt tired and really was feeling I needed the caffeine that I had been getting from them. I was determined not to turn back into that addiction and have been drinking primarily water and some unsweetened tea since that day. I feel much better now! To God be the Glory for using Joanna’s Super-Naturally Healthy Ministry in breaking my bondage of the diet soda addiction." Testimony by: Deborah Hester 4/8/2010

Stephanie R, Super-Naturally Healthy member, Florida: I have had such a wonderful time exploring your Super-Naturally Healthy site. What a great site lay-out in addition to your ministry offerings. I signed up and I'm also ordering a copy of your book. I look so forward to receiving it and applying it in our family's life. I am at a crossroads in my own life. God has been speaking so clearly to me about the things I've been allowing into my body. It is so clear to me that, in order for God to take me to my highest potential for Him in singing and in all aspects of a worship lifestyle, I have to get this area of health and fitness in balance. I just haven't know where to start. As always when God gives a command, He also supplies the tools. So I'm diving in, Joanna! Thank you again for your ministry and your heart for God. I look forward to staying in touch."
