7. An Enjoyable Healthy Eating Cookbook
Many moms love to cook and spoil their family with delicious healthy foods. Spoil YOUR mom this Mothers’ Day with a cookbook that covers easy, quick, cost-effective, and delicious healthy meals!
Go Natural Is the most complete and comprehensive health book that you will ever read. This book will guide you to dis-ease free living. The main purpose of Go Natural Wisdom for Healthy Living is to empower modern people to live healthily and DIS-EASE free despite a changed environment that is filled with refined, adulterated, preserved and chemically laden foods. It will help the reader to navigate the deceptions and many other modern health evils and land-mines that exist today. Exposure to these modern variables and deceptions is precisely the reason for the manifestation of so many modern dis-ease conditions.
“My journey to recovery taught me that SICKNESS is no ACCIDENT there is a CAUSE and EFFECT principle at work. Let me explain: This is my tenth year of recovery from a dreaded disease, Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. And boy, was I dis-eased! I was at a dead end in terms of my health. I very nearly was confined to a wheel chair. I was declared medically unfit to work and was left expecting the worst. Modern medicine could offer me no help or hope. I however refused to accept that my body would make such a mistake. I set about searching for the root cause of the problem. At the eleventh hour by grace I discovered an array of root causes and deceptions. Once these modern harmful variables were removed, I began the journey to recovery. On my journey I opened can after can of the proverbial worms only these weren’t worms, but rather deceptions. It made me realise that there are many systems that fail the general public. One can simply not trust everything that one is presented with without thorough research. The information and wisdom gained through my journey not only saved my life, but it changed my life and purpose forever. I now feel compelled to share this lifesaving information with as many people as possible so I’ve compiled the Go Natural message for you. Everything you need to know about holistic common-sense healthy living is contained in this book. It also includes 72 delicious recipes to start you on the road to HEALTHY LIVING. This Go Natural message changed my life forever for the good, now is it your turn to take your second chance.” – Johan Jacobs, author and founder of Go Natural.

A magazine subscription is a gift that keeps on giving – you pay a once-off upfront fee, and you receive a year’s worth of content, delivered to you each month. Spoil your mom by buying her a subscription to her favourite magazine.
We are living in a perilous era, where even the media cannot be trusted. Influential powers, such as politicians, have been observed to have swayed the media into reporting biased news, in favour of such influential powers. This is not only true to local news stations, but is also true on a global and international scale. Many tactics have been utilised, such as fake news, clickbait headlines, and a genuine lack of fact-checking. In this era where our culture is veering further and further away from God’s order and His truths, it is so important to be aware of what you are consuming and filling yourself with. Proverbs 4:23 warns us to “Guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Here at JOY, we are utterly sold-out for the Gospel. Our only goal is to do whatever we can to further the Lord’s Kingdom here on earth by educating and informing Christians of a Biblical worldview.
