Bone Broth Recipe (And Meeting Charles Stanley)
I don’t know what to talk about first? This bone broth recipe or my recent opportunity to meet Charles Stanley! Both are exciting in different ways, but I’ll start off with Charles Stanley. Many of you know who he is and for those that don’t, he has been a preacher for over 60 years and you can find his television show “InTouch” on TV (and radio) each week. If you are scratching your head right now wondering why this could be exciting, let me explain why this meeting meant so much to me.
How I met Charles Stanley
The short and sweet version is that twenty years ago, my life was a mess. And not just in the physical. I had already been dealing with over a decade of chronic illness(s) by this point, but emotionally my life was also in shambles. For me, his sermons were the equivalent of someone throwing me a life preserver if I were drowning.
Many nights I would fall asleep with his sermons playing on my phone next to my pillow. His messages enabled me to find peace through the darkness, as well as guidance. I had always thought about wanting to meet him, and for years I knew EXACTLY what I’d say if I ever got the opportunity. Bob and I watch him without fail every Sunday, and every Sunday I say the same thing. “One day Bob, I want to meet Charles Stanley”! (as I’m typing this I realize this all sounds a little stalker-ish, but it’s really not, I promise) I just had enormous gratitude for what his words have helped me accomplish in my life. Well, last weekend I go to do just that, and even better I got to hand him the heartfelt letter I wrote (that is what he’s looking at in his hands).
I found out the odds are of meeting him are close to nil. People come from around the country each week to attend his services. But as it says in Matthew 19:26, “with God all things are possible”. I am honored and thankful I got to tell one of the most influential people in my life “thank you”.

More About Bone Broth
If you have any digestive issues including leaky gut and food allergies, this is probably one of the top healing tools in your arsenal. I’m going to be hitting on this topic of leaky gut a lot more often as studies are linking it to autoimmune diseases including Hashimoto’s, Chronic Fatigue, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, and more. If you don’t have a local health food store that sells it, you can always make it yourself!
