For Debra Peek-Haynes, First Lady and wife of Dr. Frederick D. Haynes III, senior pastor of Dallas megachurch Friendship West Baptist, ministry is a journey that started in her mother’s womb. She was born into a pastor’s home in New Jersey.

Chemicals, preservatives and synthetic ingredients have taken the place of natural foods and we're allowing them to enter our bodies.
Raw food is alive, it still contains the vital nutrients and enzymes that gave the food life in the first place. Cooking food (above 239?F) destroys all of the enzymes and the food becomes "dead".
Enzymes are vital in that the body requires them to digest and absorb food, effectively helping to turn it into fuel.
