Mastering MINIMALISM, RAW and Media Literacy is essential in this age.

The SUFICE+FRUVEG MASTERCOURSE
is COMING SOON.
Consultation
One on one or small group "simple function" consulting to help you reduce and simplify—self, social, space.
Young People at a Workshop
We all help one another enjoy better function, freedom, fulfillment with our social media, events, and culture.
No Stress... is about learning, deciding, and living in a way that sets you free—prevents, reduces, calms, or calms you in the midst of... life's clutter stress.

We all have a sense within us of when things are cluttered in our being and world. We feel uneasy at some level. Our sensitivity to such shows up in our feelings, mood, demeanor, and actions. Like an indicator light on the dashboard of our soul... to let us know that something needs our attention. The world is full of decoys and distractions and demands that ultimately are nothing more than clutter and stress. It takes some EDGEucation and effort to set things right. When we do... we then have the advantEDGE of such. 

Practical
Here you will find helps and strategies for reducing+simplifying your home, stuff, and life
—getting rid of clutter stress caused by too much stuff or too little stuff—physical, mental, emotional, etc.

Miracle
Here you will find helps and strategies for accessing the Grace of Christ and letting His guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence—in all you do and say—make your life and world... just-right, on-mark, no more and no less, sufficient, enough. Christ knows all things and is therefore the only "Sufficient" Source of real and sustainable happiness, fruitfulness, fulfillment, and freedom. Ultimately, Christ alone fully frees us from clutter and stress. This is the greatest EDGEucation and advantEDGE of all.

Good
Every person ever born has been given access to the Light of Christ in their hearts.
This is the Source of so much good that exists on planet earth.... and our desire to improve. This is our Divine conscience—our power to know right from wrong and good from evil... and our power to choose and do right and do good. This... good... matters deeply. This Light is the Source of our being civil and goodly.


Better and Best
It takes more than just the Light of Christ to be fully set free from the things of the world. "Making and keeping covenants actually makes life easier! Each person who makes covenants in baptismal fonts and in temples—and keeps them—has increased access to the power of Jesus Christ. Please ponder that stunning truth!" - Russell M. Nelson. This better and Best matters deeply. This increased access to the power of Jesus Christ is the Source of our being Christlike and godly.

"My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." - 2 Corinthians 12: 9.

"And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them." - Ether 12: 27


"The reward for keeping covenants with God is heavenly power—power that strengthens us to withstand our trials, temptations, and heartaches better. This power eases our way. Those who live the higher laws of Jesus Christ have access to His higher power. Thus, covenant keepers are entitled to a special kind of rest that comes to them through their covenantal relationship with God. Before the Savior submitted Himself to the agony of Gethsemane and Calvary, He declared to His Apostles, 'In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.' Subsequently, Jesus entreated each of us to do the same when He said, 'I will that ye should overcome the world.'" - Russell M. Nelson
NATURE SUFFICIENT means real, authentic, whole, complete, perfect, just-right, on-mark, no more no less—just, in Christ. It is the state of being, hearing, and hearkening to His Voice in all one does and says—being mightily changed by Christ—receiving in us His sufficient Divine nature—having no disposition to do evil, but to do good continually. It is to be truly... set free.

The
nature, or Divine design of our existence is such that only One course is sufficient for the fulfillment of the Divine measure of our creation.

Full relief from the impact and stress of the natural man comes through Christ. To be changed from the natural man to 
nature sufficient we are utterly reliant upon Christ, who alone is sufficient to make up partakers of the Divine nature or being nature sufficient or complete or perfect... even as our Father in Heaven is perfect. 

Our nature or the object and design of our existence is to become as Christ is and receive fullness of Joy as He has. This Divine
nature or fulfillment of the measure of our creation is possible because...  

2 Peter 1:4
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine
nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

2 Corinthians 3:5
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our
sufficiency is of God;

Ether 12: 27
And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is
sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.

Moroni 10:32
Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and lo
ve God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.

fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:

Gen 1: 29

fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

Matt 5: 37
But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. This simply means that we are, as the Spirit of God directs, to be truly honest—real authentic whole. Any other posture or word is pretense or us relying upon ourselves or posturing in fear—which is not edifying and not of God. Such taketh the name of God in vain. We do not keeping our covenant Divine nature as a prince or princess of God and who we truly are. We are left without integrity and live with internal conflict and stress. We are to learn from such (know evil), not live with such. Anything more or less than authentic honesty damns us in our progress. From such we are to repent that we may enjoy stress free form and function—in Christ. This is the great secret of life—though it is not a secret.

Matt 5: 48 
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.


Nature sufficient simply means to be... of God—perfect in Christ.

Two primary features:
MINimalism is being set free from the things of the world. It is about enjoying the practical and miracle No Stress advantEDGE of:

Nelson

FRUVEG has a name inspired by FLUEVOG, the name of an extraordinary cobbler/shoe store in Gastown—with its cobblestone street... in Vancouver, British Columbia where I grew up. This is a metaphor for standing on solid ground and walking in obedience to the commandments Of God.

There are four ways to access the MY
REDUCE+SIMPLIFY JOY OF NO STRESS EDGE product/production:
1 Website: The website is a growing resource of INFORMation, links, resources, community, and culture.
2 Mastercourse: Mastering MINimalism, RAW, and Media Literacy are essential in this age.
3 Consulting: One on one or small group "simple function" consulting to help you reduce and simplify—self, social, space.

First and foremost, MINimalism+RAW Studios is designed to complement, support, and enhance the work of my wife, Tara.

Beyond just body massage, TARAWOOD MASSAGE holistically massages or improves lives.
TARAWOOD means Life Elevated.
TARA means elevated
a noble elevated place with a view; compassion, love, mercy; star.
WOOD means life
tree, trees, forest, food, tree of life, grounding, and ascension toward the light.
MASSAGE means to produce more acceptable results
mend, adjust, shape, manipulate, knead, fit, fashion, or form... with wisdom, prudence, and good-judgement.

TARAWOOD MASSAGE blends MICRONUTRIENTS, specialty MASSAGE, and more... to help lives function at their best. MINimalism+RAW Studios provides additional resources that further help "massage" (manage, adjust, shape) people's ability to function at their best.

In a nutshell...

MINIMALISM+RAW
In each facet of life the goal of MINimalism+RAW of to fashion and fit things... Just-right, On-mark, No more no less, Sufficient, Enough. The Real Authentic Whole component is meant to assure that minimalism does not miss the mark of that which gives us... real and sustainable self social space
—function, fruitfulness, freedom, fulfillment—felicity (full-happiness). We help people find this "just-right" sweet spot with looking at their approach to self, their social world—live and online, and their approach to use of space and the "stuff" they fill it with. This is a wholistic approach. Almost everyone lives with excess and lack. Their is deep stress reduction in taking stock of and making adjustments in ones life. The... better and Best... of this approach to life includes what Russell M. Nelson spoke of in April 2022... "Today I would like to suggest five specific actions we can take to help us maintain positive spiritual momentum: Get on the covenant path and stay there, Discover the joy of daily repentance, Learn about God and how He works, Seek and expect miracles, End conflict in your personal life."


Two other primary things we use to help people find "just-right"... are the offerings of TARAWOOD MASSAGE...
MICRONUTRIENTS
When the body is malnourished nothing functions properly and physical, mental, emotional, social, and life stress begin to rise and take over if not managed well. The minimum recommended daily allowance (RDA) of nutrients is simply insufficient in our modern age. This is especial true for for the epidemic numbers of people and families living with central nervous system challenges
—stress, ADHD, anxiety, depression, autism, bipolar, brain injury, sensory challenges, panic, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, etc. The micronutrient formula offered by TARAWOOD is specifically targeted at providing clinical strength broad-spectrum micronutrients for the brain and body. This assures that the true minimum needs of the brain and body are met for proper function. Over the past 25 years this unique formula of micronutrients has helped well over 100 thousand people get their lives back. It was ahead of its time 25 years ago. Today, the science and health communities are just beginning to understand and acknowledge that, far more often than not, the real need of those living with central nervous system challenges is first and foremost... nutritional. They live with sever nutritional deficiency that is often solvable with this proven formula.

MASSAGE
Massage is an essential component of body minimalism. Too many people go through life without the advantEDGE of body massage. The purpose of Advanced Clinical Therapeutic Massage is to enhanced function, recovery, and physical well-being—helping the muscles and tissues of the body function "just-right"—without excess stress, strain, and build-up of physical, emotional, toxin, or dysfunctional or locked-up stress, overload, and overworking. In the greater context, massage is to mend, adjust, shape anything for more acceptable results... using smart, wise, adept, prudent, and good-judgement effort and effectiveness.

Together, these three components are about the extraordinary benefits and advantEDGE of just the right blend of MICRONUTRIENTS, MASSAGE, and MINIMALISM+RAW... to reduce or eliminate the stress of excess, clutter, error, and lack
life, brain, body—self, social, space.

Our work is a MINistry or mission to offer people "simple function" therapeutic MINimalism+RAW solutions and the support of our growing community of MRS users. Taking a cue from the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe)... we call this feature of community and culture the MRU—MINimalism RAW Universe-city. We also like the play on words... M aRe yoU—MINimalism+RAW aRe yoU. Welcome to the... real authentic whole MINistry.

There is something about dialing one's life to just-right. Enough... Is Enough. The drag of clutter and excess (and lack of essentials)... spirit, mind, body, social, means, enviro, etc... is the source of STRESS. It is wonderfully refreshing and cathartic to dial your life to sufficient, real, authentic, whole... under the inspiration of the Divine Light that your heart and mind can tune into. There is real JOY in letting go of the STRESS inducing "status quo" thinking, doing, insanity, and chaos that the world demands of all of us.


The future belongs to those...
who learn how to easily tune in to the Divine Light that knows all things... and let It guide, direct, comfort, and influence all decisions. This is real and sustainable Power that... sets free. This is sufficient for needs and grace sufficient + be fruitful and love God. This is the simple tuning in to Divine Light... and having It show you, and give you Power to dial in to and have... the advantEDGE of the sufice+fruveg... MY
REDUCE+SIMPLIFY—JOY OF NO STRESS EDGE. Our MINistry is to show you how simple it is. So simple... that your first response may be upsetting as you find yourself wondering why no one showed you how sooner. That is ok. God's timing is perfect. When all is said and done, He shows you the Power, Perfection, and JOY of His Way and Timing. He never leaves you feeling ripped-off.

Magic & meaning happen as we attune our heart, mind, & will... to our Father in Heaven's Voice, Light, Love, & Pure Power.

"Stop asking God to bless what you are doing and get involved with what He is doing because that is already blessed."  - Bono

 

MINimalism is about moving beyond the foolishness of the world's "piracy" and "pretending" (acting as if you own things and have a right to things... and that you know what you are doing... when you do not)... and into the realm Of God and His Wise Guiding Light. Power, and Providing Sufficient for our needs. Without God... just-right, on-mark, no more no less, sufficient, enough... are, ironically, insufficient, hollow, pretend, and unsustainable. With God, they are infused with Divine joy, fulfillment, and power. "MINimum needed" is not just about "getting by"... it is about "no more and no less" than the fulness of joy that comes from deliberately and decidedly letting God guide, direct, comfort, influence, reduce, simplify, dial, refine, sanctify, and power ones life to being just like Him. "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." - Matt. 5: 48. Here and He is your... Joy Of No Stress EDGE. Stress is a function of fear... and fear is a function of not knowing all things. Tap into the One who knows all things and your stress is gone—displaced by the Pure Love and Light of God. It is interesting to consider that the words... MINimalism and MINistry... both come from the Proto-Indo-European root "mei" meaning "small." It is to let go of the clutter, excess, and lack that impedes our being "right." "Small" (Old English smæl) means "thin, slender, narrow; fine." The strait and narrow path of perfection or being whole—without flaw—excess or lack. The Scottish word "Dalziel" means "small field." Indeed, minimalism is the field of focus and effort of thinking small--letting go of excess and lack and ministering help to others that they may enjoy the same. In this manner the WHOLE world eventually becomes WHOLE—truly satisfied or "Grace Sufficient."


Real, authentic, whole food... is about eating more fresh (raw) fruits and veggies... and gaining the advantEDGE of their light and health values for our constitution and nature. Real, authentic, whole life... is about the be fruitful & love God effort of tuning into the Divine Light—that knows all things—that shows us who we really are and helps make right and honest decisions and choices for the best... self, social, space—function, freedom, fruitfulness, fulfillment—happiness. The future belongs to those who seek, listen, hear, heed, and hearken only to the Masters Voice and receive His Power (Grace Sufficient). This alone makes all things real, authentic, whole. Anything less we all eventually see is fruitless and pretending because we do not know all things. We must learn to tune into the One who knows all things to make real, authentic, whole decisions and progress... or simply remain dangerous to self and all creation because we do not know the impact and ripple effect of any decision we make. God alone is the Source of authentic honesty and power.

sufice+fruveg
is all about the ideal of people and community seeking
the best—the SFU—sufice+fruveg universe-city.

Fun inspiration from Vancouver—names, places, and meanings...
The St. Anthony, Idaho area is dubbed "the gateway to adventure." Situated in the heart of the upper Snake River basin or valley of eastern Idaho... it is a wonderfully picturesque and nurturing land of many farms, ranches, waters, bridges, train tracks, forests, and mountains. I have dubbed this mountain "tiara" valley—Waterfront Station, a nod to Vancouver's Waterfront Station (old train station). I have also lived in and love Australia and so Waterfront Station is also a nod to the huge ranches—"stations" of Australia.

St. Anthony, Idaho was founded by Carlos H. Moon in 1890. He built his home on the south-west corner of Main and Bridge streets, which for many years, in the Snake River Valley, was known as " Moon Corner." Like Gastown is the original part of Vancouver and named after "Gassy" Jack (John Deighton) because of his influence and presence in the days when the city was just developing on the shores of Vancouver's Burrard Inlet. I sometimes think of St Anthony's Bridge St, Main St, and West 1st North core as Gastown or Moontown.

The SFU is a nod to Vancouver's Simon Fraser University and South Fremont coUnty where St Anthony is. In St. Anthony, the name "Simon" has personal meaning for Tara and I. Generally, the name Simon means—"listen" or "hearing." Listening for and hearing the Voice of God guiding, directing, comforting, and influencing all we do is the foundation of the real, authentic, whole life. The name Fraser means "strawberry" and "of the forest men." Like the Fraser river runs through Vancouver, the Henry's Fork of the Snake River runs through St. Anthony. Strawberries are a dominant feature of Tara's garden and food forest at our home in St Anthony. In the heart of this larger Waterfront Station valley... the immediate river and forest connects the St Anthony, Parker, and Salem, Idaho triangle of towns. I have dubbed this beautiful parkland of features, trails, wildlife, and towns that immediately surrounds us... Annely Park—our lively "triangle electric." Triangle Electric" is the name of my grandfather's and fathers electrical business in Vancouver. Annely Park is a nod to Stanley Park in Vancouver, and to Tara's middle name... Lyanne.

It about creating our own GASTOWN—Godly, Authentic, Sufficient (GAS)—community (TOWN). Our Sufice+Fruveg Universe-city of true and sustainable communication, happiness, freedom, fulfillment, community and supporting one another Such is the fruit of letting
 God inspire, influence, and empower all they think, believe, become, do, speak, create, and joy in. It is about relief from the drag of status quo thinking and living. 

MINmalism
—the manner/design you choose/create of light life liberty love lift minimalism mobility means... and the media you create/design... and the media that seeks to influence you—especially Divine Light, Influence, Inspiration
RAW—your design/preparing and enjoying more fresh fruits and veggies, gardening, and the nourishment of sun, air, forests, etc.

Everything goes best if we are truly MINimalism+RAW literate. In fact, the future belongs to those who are. I have worked in MINimalism+RAW for 35 years. I have found that they are deeply interrelated. MINimalism is all about the way or manner in which we approach things. It includes communication and influencewhich is everything. Each of us send a "message" with each decision we make. Media reach and influence can be in print or broadcast or spoken word or just the way we communicate with ourselves, and more. The sun and earth communicate sustaining light, air, nutrients, etc. Then there is the Divine Media realm—the Light and Mediation of God that governs in all things... and the communication we send and receive from Him. This is the Wise Virgin oil in our lamps that sets us free. The dark media realm can also have influence on us. The adversary to Light and Truth is always seeking to drag us down. RAW is about food, fitness, function, fruitfulness, freedom, fulfillment, and felicity.

I have been a student, teacher, and designer of these things for decades.
sufice+fruveg is my effort to share what I have learned and to build a community of people who would like to be the "best" in their relationship to MINimalism+RAW
—designing, preparing, and enjoying the best life possible. 

I have done a deep study and living of the science of natural hygiene (orthopathy
natural healthcare) and much more.
I worked for several years doing media and coaching with Anthony Robbins & Associates.
I have worked in the organization and minimalism industries for decades.
I have designed many graphics and branding pieces and websites.
MINimalism+RAW Studios take all this to a whole other level
—an inspired, fun, and practical approach to improvement of life.

I know that at the deepest level people simply want to be fulfilled and free. If we can reach them with the simple message of sufice+fruveg... they can find what they are looking for. 

For many years I tried to find a tame way of presenting the things of God
a way that would be easy for everyone to relate to. In recent years I have let go of that idea because it is not authentically honest. Real and sustainable happiness, freedom, and fulfillment are the fruit of having the guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence of God and His Light and Mediation in all we do. Any other effort or posture cannot bear the fruit of real and enduring happiness, freedom, and fulfillment. By Divine Design each of us, as a child of God, is engineered to talk with God, hear God's Voice, do as He Directs, and receive from Him... our becoming like Himwho knows all things. He is the Master and we are the apprentice. He knows the best and only manner of becoming like Him. We know nothing, even though we think we know something. The simple reality is that any being that does not know all things is dangerous because they do not know the impact and ripple effect of any decision they make. God alone knows what is right and best and is the only One capable of showing us what is right and best in our MINIMA+RAW relationship and quest. He has prepared the way for us to know and do what is best. Imagine a world in which we have all learned to Hear this Wise and Freeing Direction and do itthat which is Godly Authentic Sufficientnothing more and nothing less. Welcome to the SFUsufice+fruveg universe-city.
