Hello, my name is Melissa Phipps.
I am a work-a-holic turned stay at home mom who went from a misdiagnosis of bi-polar to the real culprit hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s autoimmune disease to searching for my own wellness without medications and with the Word of God as my guide. This blog is my journey.
I originally called my blog The Hummingbird Feeder because hummingbirds are the epitome of the wellness I’m seeking. They run completely on sugar and for being so high energy they never get so exhausted they stay in bed all day; quite the opposite! Instead, twice a year they successfully travel a thousand plus miles. If God can keep them well and without insulin resistance and Hashimoto’s and adrenal fatigue then he can do it for me and you!
We are worth so much more then the birds of the fields!
Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
In my searching I realized that my photography blog ‘Exposing Silver’ also complemented my mission to wellness. Silver is amazing! It is a natural anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-bacterial that when used does not produce a resistant strain. The intruder is just gone!
God’s natural elements of the earth are perfect beyond comprehension and everything we need to achieve wellness! God is good and our victory is secure through Christ’s death on the cross! Isn’t that great news!?
So I decided to combine the two. I will still post images, my photography, as they compliment my blog. This ministry weighs on my heart and takes precedence over my photography. I see God’s beauty in the subject matter of my images so I do hope they bless you as well as the blogs!
