Happy Sunday & Happy Father’s Day!

There are so many wonderful fathers I am grateful for… I do want to focus on and celebrate the beautiful fathers who have made a difference in all our lives!

Starting with the father who gave me life, Jose Medina, and ending with my husband who has tenderly and firmly loved all our children. My heart is full of gratitude.

I love this man… Thank You for being my daddy!


I love making him laugh!


Thank You Robert for being such a wonderful father to our children. 💜


I am truly blessed to say that in our family we have incredible fathers. Eric, Bryan, Tom, Mel, Brandon, and Austin just to name a few. They all inspire and give me hope for a brighter future for the next generation.  


So grateful for these wonderful men… Bryan, Tom, Eric, Robert, Blake, Mel, & Austin!


Then, there are some who have not experienced fatherhood in a loving way. Perhaps their father was abusive or absent.

I once heard a priest say, “when a child is abandoned by their father, it leaves a hole in their soul.” I believe it could also keep us from an intimate relationship with our ultimate Father, God.

If that is your story, I am truly sorry… I will say however, I am grateful you were born!

Now you get to replace the story of abuse with the story of creating a beautiful life for yourself and your children. God wanted you to be born and to use the experience to be better, not bitter.

If the celebration of Father’s Day leaves you a bit empty, you are not alone. Perhaps it is time to focus on our Heavenly Father. The Father who never leaves and is ALWAYS with us. The Father who will always work things out for the good of all. The Father who wants the best for us!

Perhaps when we look at our earthly father, there are flaws. What human isn’t flawed? Our fathers, just like us, did the best they could at the time. Our Heavenly Father is perfect. He will fill that hole in our soul, spirit, mind, and body. 

I am grateful for all our flawed fathers for they are truly our teachers of who to be and who not to be… So let’s be who we say we are! God will only teach us how to be. God reflects pure love. God really loves us!



God Bless all the fathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, and men who have stepped in as a father.

Happy Father’s Day!

It is a new week and here is what’s happening on

The Lillian McDermott Radio Show/Classroom!




Monday, 6/19/23 Facebook Watch Party 12:05 pm  ~ There are so many things in our lives that are obvious but go unnoticed until someone or something brings them to our attention. As an example, until we receive a complement, we are unaware that we have a nice pair of shoes, a beautiful family, or a reliable car. Author Paul Jenkins, PhD, will share how we can achieve a higher level of awareness and achieve Pathological Positivity.  (Aired 6-24-19)


Tuesday, 6/20/23 WYNAF, Telegram, YouTube or Facebook LIVE 12:05 pm ~ Ashley Biscoe, ND, of Attune Medical, was instrumental in helping me learn about the recurrence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in my body. She was specific about how to test for this, which made a huge difference. How many times do we feel a symptom and take a pill to suppress whatever symptom we have? I am amazed at how quickly the body bounces back to health when it is given what it naturally needs. Dr. Biscoe is back to share the healing philosophy behind Naturopathic Medicine.


Wednesday, 6/21/23 WYNAF, Telegram, YouTube or Facebook LIVE 12:05 pm ~ Are you familiar with Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) bands? Not too long-ago, Mike DeBord, President and CEO of B3 Sciences, came to the classroom to show us how we can hack our body into growing strong muscles with half the weight in half the time! Dr. Mike is one of the top BFR experts in the world. He will share his journey back to health and wellness. He will also teach us how we too can start our journey back to health at any age… especially after 50! Click Here to learn more about the B3 Bands!


Thursday, 6/22/23 WYNAF, Telegram, YouTube or Facebook LIVE 12:05 pm ~ William Davis, MD, is a cardiologist and author of many books including the New York Times bestselling Wheat Belly series, UNDOCTORED, and his latest book called Super Gut! In our process of seeking optimal health, I am grateful that Dr. Davis has agreed to assist us in our 6-week Super Gut course starting on August 1st! But who is Dr. Davis? And why is he so passionate about us looking at our microbiome for optimal health? Dr. Davis is back to share his journey towards stepping out of his comfort zone and into a natural approach to health.


Friday, 6/23/23 Facebook Watch Party 12:05 pm ~ I was looking for a whole food plant based medical doctor in Jacksonville, FL. Well, to my surprise, I not only found one, but he is an orthopedic surgeon! Stephan Esser, MD, is so passionate about nutrition that he goes out of his way to educate his patients about optimum health. How does food affect our bones? Dr. Esser will join us to share why our food is medicine! (Aired 6-23-20)
