How to Make Delicious Roasted Yams

How to roast yams

This week, I’ve been working away, creating a series of videos for a new e-course all about how to start juicing. There is something about the creative process that makes me feel so energized, inspired and engaged. I can’t wait to share the e-course with you (FYI…it starts this Monday, July 14th!).

I think what I love most about the creative process, for this blog, is being able to give you information that you need in a digital format. All I have to say is…I’m so grateful for all of the new computer software programs that have made it possible for this semi-techy girl like me to create e-courses, and e-books, websites, blog posts, videos, podcasts, and so much more.

I can’t get enough of digital creation. I’ve loved every step of the way creating this website. And, I can’t get enough of sharing what I’ve learned about health reinvention and life reinvention with you, through this digital platform.
