My name is Jessica
and I am The Bread Believer.
Bread. Think about it. One word with many meanings: from an all-encompassing term for food, to the toast holding your jelly, to the words of Jesus in the Bible – those five letters yield a multiplicity of interpretations!
That’s why I am The Bread Believer!

A little about me…
Second to surrendering my life to Jesus Christ, marrying Robert, was the best decision I ever made! Irrefutably, he makes me a better person. We have the best times together – working out, studying the Bible, exploring healthy living – our life is good!
Robert is a degreed architect and as an experienced creative professional – a hair designer – owns Robert Herrera Hair Design. Robert loves God and me, good design, lifting weights, our cats…and pancakes!
Together, we help people look good and feel good!
After graduating Bible college, I earned a B.S. and M.S. in Holistic Nutrition and, so far, have enjoyed over a decade of professional experience in the fields of health and wellness.
An ACE Certified Health Coach and Fitness Nutrition Specialist, a member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and the Weston A. Price Foundation, my areas of expertise center on the inextricable links between Bible Scripture, health and nutrition. I’m especially passionate about helping people tailor their food, faith, and fitness choices so they get their desired results!
While educational endeavors proved meaningful, the ‘school of hard knocks’ ever stands as my most comprehensive and valuable educator.
Robert and I travelled an unpredictable and transformative journey learning what it means to live well – body, soul, and spirit. Through heartbreak, major illnesses, and ongoing, consistent recovery, I’ve discovered the fullness of life found solely in a relationship with God.
Nourishment from homemade bread – among other nutrient dense food – is a God given asset to health. I’m excited to share my experiences with you as I truly believe you can prosper in every way…even as your soul prospers!
Nemo & Piper | My Babies
Nemo and Piper, our two Somali cats, (translation: fur babies) graciously allow me to live alongside them in our home. I do my best to attend to their every beck and call…or meow! You’ll see these sweet peas throughout the blog and may even learn why they thrive on a homemade, raw diet!
On The Bread Believer, you and I will share together the immense health benefits of real and nourishing food, fitness, and God’s design for our wellbeing.
We will uncover truths of a wholehearted life through the provision of Jesus; He is the Bread of Life! We’ll make mistakes, laugh, and share ideas as we explore the world of health and fitness! If you’re a novice, no worries. If you’re an expert, I can’t wait to learn from you.
