Commitment to Service w/ Zeke and Christina Sanchez

Morning Meeting at The FIREhouse

I sat down for a special Morning Meeting this week with retired SDFD Captain Zeke Sanchez and his daughter Christina. They filled me in on what life was like trying to raise a family in the fire department on one hand and what it was like to be raised by a firefighter on the other. They open up about the struggles of constantly trying to make ends meet and how that impacted them at home. Captain Sanchez’s advice about not relying on OT to pay the bills took on a whole new perspective when Christina shared what that meant for her when dad was away. Zeke came from humble beginnings, without much financial literacy to speak of before coming on the job, but was still able to support his family and help put his daughter through college at the best school in the country, Santa Clara University. Go Broncos!   He did that and still has been living a comfortable life in retirement, while also giving back to the community through his scholarship to the Bomberos de San Diego. He had a plan and never spent more than he had and tried to save at least $0.10 of every dollar he earned. Simple, tried and true advice... I feel honored to have had them on the show and for their willingness to open up to all of us. If you’d like to learn more about them you can find him at zekensheree@sbcglobal.net and her on Facebook @Christinsanchezstokes I hope you guys enjoy it! P. S. Check us out on social media!

I forget to mention in the intro that Christina is a hair stylist and outdoor rock climber as well as being an herbalist, plant geek, and environmental advocate. In our talk, we bring up current issues around white sage and call out a few brands on the market not creating their products with the plants in mind including essential oils. We even talk about the best ways of pooping in the wilderness and furthermore, how we all need to advocate for minimizing the impact we put on the places we visit whether camping, foraging, traveling, etc. Christina is hosting the third annual Whitewater River Desert Cleanup in Whitewater, California this Saturday, October 13th.

Desert Lady Diaries | Christina Sanchez | Episode 39

Desert Lady Diaries

The first time Christina came to the desert it was to ring in the new year at Pappy & Harriet's in Pioneertown. She connected with some musicians who introduced her to various aspects of the desert, including the national park and Christina began splitting her time between Orange County, CA and the desert. During the transition, she also took up rock-climbing and has met and been trained by some of the most experienced and best climbers in the business.  In this episode Christina also talks about desert dating experiences, along with a side of the desert community she was surprised to bear witness to and how being alone in the desert has helped her with setting some personal boundaries.   Her love of desert plants and their medicinal value lead her to create 'Every Leaf Speaks'. Christina studied at The Gaia School of Healing & Earth Education and is in her second year of learning at Green Wisdom Herbal Studies, which is rooted in the Wise WOMBan Tradition. Christina recently began teaching classes on medicine making her in the Morongo Basin.   We end the episode with a lovely poem by one of Christina's inspirations, Susun Weed.   Every Leaf Speaks on Facebook Susun Weed WebsiteKim Stringfellow's Mojave Project JT Rock Climber HistoryCactus MartEvery Leaf Speaks on InstagramChristina's Hair Design
