Lately on FB I have seen and re-posted A LOT of great Memes, pictures, and posts. Here are a few of my favorites... Enjoy ♥
“Greater efforts need to be put into educating parents (and pharmacists and pediatricians) about the need to stock activated charcoal in the home in advance of a poisoning.”
This activated charcoal is not the kind found on your burnt toast!
Activated charcoal is a highly absorptive antidote for emergency use (and a few other non-emergency uses). It is able to rapidly mop up toxins and chemicals. Toxins adhere or stick to the very porous surface of the charcoal, so nothing is absorbed by the body. Instead, it passes through and out of the GI tract, trapped in the charcoal.
It is a fine, black powder that is odorless, tasteless, and non-toxic, and it has proven its value over and over again!
But you have to know about it and have it on hand for it to do any good!
DISCOVERY!It was 1831. In front of his distinguished colleagues at the French Academy of Medicine, Professor Touery drank a lethal dose of strychnine and lived to tell the tale. He had combined the deadly poison with activated charcoal. (source)
Need I say, please don’t try this at home!
In a 2001 study conducted by the Kentucky Regional Poison Center and reported in the medical journal Pediatrics, Henry Spiller, MS, and George Rodgers, MD of the University of Louisville, demonstrated the real value of giving activated charcoal in the home to children as an antidote for most poisons.
The authors of the study concluded the obvious: administering activated charcoal in the home is a lot quicker than taking the time to get to the closest emergency room. They added, “Greater efforts need to be put into educating parents (and pharmacists and pediatricians) about the need to stock activated charcoal in the home in advance of a poisoning.” (source)
We have averted full-blown food-poisoning after eating out more than once as well as using it several times here on the farm. I wouldn’t be without activated charcoal in my medicine cabinet – and always keep capsules in the car – for spider bites, mushroom poisoning, accidental poisoning, a stomach bug or food poisoning, or even a snake bite until we can get to the ER. I don’t hesitate to share it if there is a need.
Sometimes, minutes count!
In the case of aspirin poisoning, activated charcoal should be given right away, or if possible, at least within the first thirty minutes. Powdered charcoal reaches its maximum rate of adsorption in the stomach within one minute. The sooner it is given, the better the chances of successful treatment.
After one hour, charcoal given for fast-absorbing drugs like aspirin is usually only about ten percent effective. (source)
It has also been used successfully as an external poultice (mixed with baking soda and plantain) on brown recluse and other serious spider bites.
Scientific experiments over many years attest to the effectiveness of charcoal as an antidote, both to humans and to animals. In one experiment, 100 times the lethal dose of Cobra venom was mixed with charcoal and injected into a laboratory animal. The animal was not harmed. In other experiments, arsenic and strychnine were mixed with charcoal and ingested by humans under laboratory conditions. The subjects survived even though the poison dosages were five to ten times the lethal dose.
Contrary to popular belief, activated charcoal does not steal minerals from the body if only used when needed. (source: How Activated Charcoal Works)
ACTIVATED CHARCOAL DOSAGE:Activated charcoal can be purchased in tablets, capsules, or powder form.
****Tablets have one-half the potency of the powdered charcoal
****capsules are a bit more expensive but easy to use
****About 14 capsules equals a tablespoon of powder.
It is best to take one to two tablespoons of powder in a small portion of water and followed with several glasses of water. (source)
Adequate water is a must to get the charcoal to its target. In the case of a poisoning emergency, I would certainly call a poison control center and follow their instructions.
The National Poison Control Center in the US is 1-800-222-1222.
Of course, if your area has it, you can always call 911. Please keep pertinent numbers in a readily visible place such as on your fridge. The information on this site is also helpful.
Pumping the stomach is only effective immediately after swallowing a toxic substance (under a half-hour) and does not reach beyond the stomach as activated charcoal does. Some emergency rooms automatically administer large doses of activated charcoal for certain types of poisoning.
For kids who are hesitant or refuse, you can mix powder in applesauce! Its tasteless so kids just think its cool… It’s best on an empty stomach! But in applesauce its less messy, and they don’t complain at all!
John is a minister, and while he believes very strongly in faith and its part in healing, he also believes one should heed the counsel to “add to one’s faith… knowledge” (2 Peter 1:5). For John and his wife Sharon that means understanding how to use simple natural home remedies.
“John and Sharon try to be prepared for any emergency. As a quick simple first aid, they always have charcoal near at hand. Because they were prepared for one emergency, they now know it really does work for aspirin poisoning. “It happened that a baby got a hold of a number of aspirins and swallowed them. Fortunately it was promptly noticed, and we immediately gave charcoal. For some time after giving the charcoal, we watched the baby carefully, and there were no observable side effects at all.”
Can activated charcoal work for you in an emergency?
It can if you follow the Kentucky Poison Control Center’s advice and stock activated charcoal, the antidote for hundreds of common drugs and chemicals, in your medicine cabinet.
Then, if it should happen to one of your little ones or a neighbor’s, you can quickly give the antidote as you consider the need to go to Emergency. But what if there is no Emergency Clinic nearby?
“While doing development work in Nepal, just before the rainy season set in, the small clinic at which I worked hosted a week long “health camp”. A group of American doctors, dentists, and their spouses made the exhausting six-hour hike up and down, and finally over into the Huwas valley. “After that very busy week, as some of the medical team rested up for the trek out, Joyce, the director’s wife, led a number of the others on a walk down to the river. On the way, they passed a family having a picnic beside a small Hindu shrine. The translator mentioned that the family lived just below the clinic. After stopping for tea in one village, Joyce decided to hike home by a different route. As they passed by the local health-post/pharmacy, the health worker called them over. A small, four-year-old boy was lying there not responding to anything. The group recognized him as one of the children at the family picnic. Joyce, herself a nurse, tells what happened:
“Among the group was a pediatrician. He examined the child and mentioned meningitis and a couple other serious possibilities as a cause for the child’s condition. Not able to confirm a diagnosis, the doctor decided to give a large dose of antibiotic by injection. It would take some time for the antibiotic to take effect, so we stood around observing the child, and conversing. At some point, I described a similar case, but it had been from poisoning. The baby had not been treated and had died. I suggested giving charcoal. After hearing my story, the physician agreed that this child could also be suffering from poisoning, “but poisoning from what?” he wondered. Nevertheless, he decided that charcoal was worth a try.
So I went to gather some coals from the nearest cook fires. We pulverized them as best we could and mixed the gritty powder in a four-ounce glass with water. We strained the mixture through a cloth and, because the child could not swallow, administered it through a small tube. We were able to get some down, and the child began to struggle against it. That encouraged us to keep trying, and eventually we were able to get about two ounces down. It was difficult to get it into the child because it was gritty and the tube was too small. As the others worked, another woman and I quietly offered a prayer that God would add His blessing to our efforts.
Very soon the child’s breathing, which had been shallow and irregular, returned to normal. We removed the tube, and before the child totally refused to take anymore, we were able to get one more ounce down. By then the boy was completely alert. From the time we were able to get the first bit of charcoal down to the time he was back up and running around was no more than five minutes. We were all absolutely amazed! The doctor insisted that it had to have been the charcoal, because the antibiotics could not possibly have worked so quickly.”
I hope those of you who are still skeptical never have to face such choices. But, by the time you’ve finished these pages and listened to those who have, I hope you will have enough evidence to try charcoal yourselves should an emergency arise. Faith is very powerful, but we need to add knowledge to our faith.
USE AND STORAGE
I wrote this post on how to administer charcoal in an emergency.
Should you ever need to use activated charcoal on your self or a child for poisoning, use as soon as possible. Call a poison control center or go to the emergency room as well to make sure the poison has been fully removed as there are several things activated charcoal will NOT adsorb.
When storing it, be careful that young children or pets can’t access it for it is a huge PAIN to clean up from grout or other rough surfaces. The sink or counter, no problem. Think a small plastic container with a tight-fitting lid perhaps.

Your Body: A Magnificent Gift to Cherish
By President Russell M. Nelson
Your body is a magnificent creation of God.
The longer I live, the more knowledge I gain. That knowledge helps me to understand that the gift of our physical bodies is a transcendent miracle. A unique body is given to each of us by our loving Heavenly Father. He created it as a tabernacle for our spirits, to assist each of us in our quest to fulfill the full measure of our creation. Our bodies allow each of us to experience the great plan of salvation that He has designed for all His precious children. He wants us eventually to become more like Him and return to live with Him. That great blessing would not be possible without our first receiving a physical body in this probationary estate.
God, the Father of our spirits, has a glorified, perfected body of flesh and bones. We lived with Him in heaven before we were born.
When He created us physically, we were created in the image of God, each with a personal mortal body.
We are part of His divine purpose. “My work and my glory,” He said, is “to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.”
We Are Dual Beings
Each soul is composed of body and spirit, both of which emanate from God. A firm understanding of body and spirit will shape our thoughts and deeds for the good.
Prior to our mortal existence here, each spirit son and daughter lived with God. The spirit is eternal; it existed in innocence in the premortal realm and will exist after the body dies.
The spirit provides the body with animation and personality. “All spirit is matter, but it is more fine or pure.”
Development of the spirit is of eternal consequence. The attributes by which we shall be judged one day are those of the spirit. These include the attributes of virtue, integrity, compassion, love, and more. Your spirit, by being housed in your body, is able to develop and express these attributes in ways that are vital to your eternal progression.
Spirit and body, when joined together, become a living soul of supernal worth. “The spirit and the body are the soul of man.” Both are of great importance. Your physical body is a magnificent creation of God. It is His temple as well as yours and must be treated with reverence. Scripture declares:
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
Your body, whatever its natural gifts, is a magnificent creation of God. It is a tabernacle of flesh—a temple for your spirit. A study of your body attests to its divine design.
Your Body Is a Magnificent Gift
The marvel of our physical bodies is often overlooked or underappreciated. Who has not encountered feelings of low self-esteem because of physique or appearance? Many people wish their bodies could be more to their liking. Some with naturally straight hair want it curly. Others born with curly hair want it straight.
Ponder the magnificence of what you see when you look in the mirror. Ignore the freckles, the unruly hair, or the blemishes, and look beyond to see the real you—a child of God, created by Him in His image.
When you sing “I Am a Child of God,” think of His gift to you of your own physical body. The many amazing attributes of your body attest to your own “divine nature.”
Each organ of your body is a wondrous gift from God. Each eye has an autofocusing lens. Nerves and muscles control two eyes to make a single three-dimensional image. The eyes are connected to the brain, which records the sights seen.
Your heart is an incredible pump. It has four delicate valves that control the direction of blood flow. These valves open and close more than 100,000 times a day—36 million times a year. Yet, unless altered by disease, they can withstand such stress almost indefinitely.
Think of the body’s defense system. To protect it from harm, it perceives pain. In response to infection, it generates antibodies. The skin provides protection. It warns against injury that excessive heat or cold might cause.
The body renews its own outdated cells. The body can heal its cuts, bruises, and broken bones. Its capacity for reproduction is another sacred gift from God.
The body constantly regulates the levels of countless ingredients, such as salt, water, sugar, protein, oxygen, and carbon dioxide. Regulatory controls are managed without our awareness of these amazing realities.
Please note: A perfect body is not required to achieve a divine destiny. In fact, some of the sweetest spirits are housed in frail frames. Great spiritual strength is often developed by those with physical challenges—precisely because they are challenged. Such individuals are entitled to all the blessings that God has in store for His faithful and obedient children.
Each mortal life is closed by death. Eventually the time will come when each “spirit and … body shall be reunited again in … perfect form; both limb and joint shall be restored to its proper frame.” Then, thanks to Jesus Christ and His Atonement, we can become perfected in Him.21 Anyone who studies the workings of the human body has surely “seen God moving in his majesty and power.”
Our Spirits Should Be in Charge of Our Bodies
Remarkable as your body is, its prime purpose, as stated earlier, is of even greater importance—to serve as tenement for your eternal spirit.
Your spirit acquired your body and became a living soul to experience mortality and the associated trials and testing. Part of that testing is to determine if the appetites of your body can become mastered by the spirit that dwells within it.
When we understand our nature and our purpose on earth and that our bodies are physical temples of God, we will realize that it is sacrilege to let anything enter that might defile the body. It is truly irreverent to let even the gaze of our precious eyesight or the sensors of our touch or hearing supply the brain with memories that are unclean or unworthy. We will cherish our chastity and avoid “foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown [us] in destruction and perdition.” We will “flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, [and] meekness” —traits that edify the whole soul.
Substances such as alcohol, tobacco, and harmful drugs are forbidden by the Lord. We have similarly been warned about the evils of pornography and unclean thoughts. Appetites for these degrading forces can become addictive. In time, physical or mental addictions enslave both the body and the spirit. Repentance from such shackles should be accomplished in this life while we still have the aid of a mortal body to help us develop self-mastery.
Our Creator put appetites in our bodies to perpetuate the human race and fulfill His great plan of happiness. Thus, we have appetites for food, for water, and for love.
Satan knows the power of our appetites. So, he tempts us to eat things we should not eat, to drink things we should not drink, and to desecrate the most intimate expressions of love by employing them outside the bounds of marriage.
When we truly know our divine nature, we will want to control such appetites. And we will focus our eyes on sights, our ears on sounds, and our minds on thoughts that are a credit to our physical creation as a temple of God. In daily prayer, we will gratefully acknowledge Him as our Creator and thank Him for the magnificence of our own physical temple. We will care for it and cherish it as our own personal gift from God.
Follow the Savior
To reach your highest destiny, emulate the Savior. He proclaimed, “What manner of men ought ye to be? … Even as I am.” Our loftiest hope is to grow in spirit and attain “the stature of the fullness of Christ.”
Remember, not a season of life passes without temptation, trial, or torment, whether spiritually or physically. But as you prayerfully develop self-mastery, the desires of the flesh may be subjected to your spiritual control. And when that has been achieved, you may have the strength to submit to the will of your Heavenly Father. Remember, Jesus said, “Not my will, but thine, be done.”
When deepening trials come your way, as they surely will, remember this glorious promise of the Savior: “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”
May we ever be grateful for the incredible blessing of a magnificent physical body, the supreme creation of our loving Heavenly Father. As great as our body is, it is not an end in itself. It is an essential part of God’s great plan of happiness for our eternal progression. If we honor it as God has ordained, we will remain on that “strait and narrow path which leads to eternal life.”
Jesus Christ is our great Exemplar.
I declare, as His special witness, that He is the Son of God. He “is the life and the light of the world.”
We are sons and daughters of Almighty God. He is our Father. We are His children. Our divine inheritance is the magnificence of humankind. Our inheritance is sacred. Our potential is unlimited. May we always honor His gifts and that heritage in all that we do and say.
This amazing young Missionary has grown up SO much over the past 2 years.... ("not enough" he says, lol)
However, we have really seen the difference, and are SO proud of him, and the fine example he has become. What a blessing and honor to have such a wonderful son! We couldn't be happier for him and for us!!
His Argentine/Paraguay Mission is coming to a close in a few more weeks! That will fly by fast, for sure. I better get my office out of his bedroom. haha
He had the option to stay an extra 6 weeks there, however, he would like to get his application in for college ASAP, since it doesn't start until Fall next year but must be in this November. He has LOTS of big plans ahead of him. He will work and go to school for the next few years, is his plan. Sounds like a wonderful idea.
Here shown, he is baptizing a young boy (13) who had put off his baptism many times, until the right Missionary came along. (that would be Elder Holler).
What an awesome sight this is.
It made me cry tears of joy, since he is so mature and it melts my heart ♥
Thinking about those who would be unable to go into the LDS Temple to see their Eternal Sealing...My nephew Corey II held a 'ring ceremony' that morning at Thanksgiving Point, Lehi, Utah.- Then a fun Reception followed, in the same gorgeous gardens. ~ Later, the young couple went to SLC Temple for their 'Sealing' Ordinance, that same evening! It’s been a wonderful day! Congrats to Bri and Corey II Philpot! (Photo by Melissa) Elder Alex Holler just missed it. He'll have to catch the next one...maybe it'll be one of his brothers??
This video compilation is not the best, (a little shaky) but still shows how much FUN we all had celebrating my nephews very special day!
Corey Dean II, is my son (Jacob Holler's) same age, and he also looks like him and a lot like my other Hatch/Holler sons.
This is why being included in these special moments on his special day was and is so deeply appreciated.
"Thank you Corey and Bri!" oxox
(All this reminds me of what will be the beautiful weddings my own loved and precious Holler sons.
I hope with all my heart that they will invite me to celebrate with them. I know it will be hard for them, but I would cherish it with all my heart. ♥
I also pray that they understand I pray for their success and happiness, and hope they know that I am their biggest FAN on Earth.
The choice is theirs!
I pray that they understand that they have ALWAYS been invited, and welcome, to be a part of these Hatch family activities and special celebrations.
We, the whole Hatch family, always talk about them, miss them very much, and love them dearly. ♥)
Bring my sons home, humble their hearts, show them the way, and most importantly bring them the Gospel and Pure LOVE of Christ ♥,
’Twas a sheep not a lamb
That strayed away in the parable Jesus told,
A grown-up sheep that strayed away
From the ninety and nine in the fold.
And why for the sheep should we seek
And earnestly hope and pray?
Because there is danger when sheep go wrong:
They lead the lambs astray.
Lambs will follow the sheep, you know,
Wherever the sheep may stray.
When sheep go wrong,
It won’t take long till the lambs are as wrong as they.
And so with the sheep we earnestly plead
For the sake of the lambs today,
For when the sheep are lost
What a terrible cost
The lambs will have to pay.
~The Echo by C.C. Miller
Couldn't be more excited for these two love birds.
Corey ll (Jacob Hollers age) and his fiance, Bri, got engaged to be married, this August 3rd.
*Also, this cutie nephew of mine, Elijah Philpot (Andrew Holler's age), just turned 22 years old this month also.
He and his girlfriend are going to have a baby soon.
Former Merck Scientist Explains Why He Doesn’t Vaccinate His Children Due to Lack of Vaccine Safety Studies
by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News
Del Bigtree, producer of the film VAXXED, and host of the weekly show HighWire, interviewed Jorge Araujo, a scientist who worked for the pharmaceutical company Merck as a lead supervisor on vaccine sterile quality this week.
Araujo’s wife is a nurse, and they didn’t even question the science behind vaccines until they were expecting their first child, when Araujo’s wife began asking him questions about vaccines.
Araujo relates that as he began to ask questions about vaccine efficacy and safety, the answers were not there. His research showed him that the robust science and quality controls present in regular drug manufacturing did not seem to be present with vaccine manufacturing.
So he and his wife decided not to vaccinate their children, and today they are all “super healthy.”
Araujo states that he is not alone in his skepticism regarding the lack of science and quality controls for vaccine manufacture, and that other scientists he knows who worked for Merck are also deciding not to vaccinate their children.
Jorge Araujo is friends with Nico LaHood, the criminal District Attorney in San Antonio, Texas, who was also interviewd by Del Bigtree on his HighWire show.
LaHood and his wife have one child on the autism spectrum, and he gave an interview with the VAXXED film crew back in 2016, where he stated:
"So what I do, is I follow evidence. I am an empirical data guy.
I am here to tell you that vaccines can and do cause autism."
You can watch his interview from 2016 here:

Former “Vaccine Bully” Board-certified Pediatrician Now Says Unvaccinated Children Are Healthiest
Dr. Zajac admits that he used to be a “vaccine bully,” because his clinic needed to achieve certain vaccine rates. But his attitude changed as he had to start making decisions about vaccines for his own children, and his own clinical practice had shown that the rates of vaccine injuries were not what the CDC and drug companies were claiming, such as “one in a million,” but more like one out of 100 were being hospitalized from vaccine injuries.
"There were patients who were seeing the local chiropractor who were healthier than my other patients, and they were doing some other things for their health other than just taking medication for whatever condition they might have.
They also had a lower vaccine uptake, and they were healthy. And that was really hard for me to recognize.
My partially unvaccinated patients, and none of us liked them, quite honestly, back then they were going against their medical doctor’s advice. And with the ego that I had, it was really hard to swallow.
It took me a couple of years to start learning about vaccines. And the moment I started reading research about vaccines, it changed my life forever."
