Mom Tested Natural Remedies That Work!

  This post may contain affiliate links to support the cost of this blog.     So I’m sitting here one month postpartum, with two infections I’m trying to fight off.  On the bright side after I had my son I had three infections at the same time, all much worse than my current maladies. And of course the infections flared up on Christmas Eve and I had to wait two days before getting seen, making them even worse, so the fact these two infections are mild is good, I guess……. My current infections are the...

How Do I Deal With Fear and Fight Deception?

  This post may contain affiliate links to support the cost of this blog.     I was going to share my birth story video (me talking about it) today with everyone, but then I realized with how I had it tagged on youtube, the related videos in the sidebar have copious amounts of women in the middle of giving birth in various stages of undress.  Because those are images that I generally don’t want to see, even if they are medical, I will assume you don’t want to see them either in your recommended video section. With...

I Got My 18 Week Ultrasound And It’s A………….

  This post may contain affiliate links to support the cost of this blog.     Well, we have a little wiggle worm that’s for sure.  It probably had something to do with the large, unsweetened, McDonald’s ice tea I drank before the ultra sound.  And in a related story I had a hard time falling asleep that night too. The baby would not stay still, and unfortunately was facing away from the technician for almost the entire time.  The Ultra sound took a good 50 minutes and we didn’t get the profile shot until about...

  This post may contain affiliate links to support the cost of this blog.     So here’s what’s been going on in my life……. I’ve been dealing with 3 months of morning sickness But that means we’re expecting again, YAY! I got a miserable virus 2 weeks ago (yuck). Just in time for the entire family to get the flu (booo) Although our symptoms weren’t too bad because of the essential oils (no I’m not an associate, I just love them) we’ve been using. I just wish we would have used...

3 Tips To Simplify Your Time Online #lifesimplified

  This post may contain affiliate links to support the cost of this blog.     I’m changing e-mail hosts and switching to a newsletter format . If you’re subscribed to my list your e-mails will soon be looking a little different. They’re still from me though.

You want a...

A Baptist’s View on Lent

  This post may contain affiliate links to support the cost of this blog.     I often don’t share the fact that I’m Baptist online.  Not because I’m ashamed, but because for the purposes of an encouraging Christian website, that doesn’t delve terribly deep into theology, it’s mostly irrelevant.  Plus there are some Baptists out there I don’t care to be associated with. With that being said: Lent snuck up on me.  I was vaguely aware of those terribly fattening and sugary pastries, whose Polish...

Don’t Let Facebook Suck The Life Out Of You

  This post may contain affiliate links to support the cost of this blog.     In case you can’t see the image: “Man, after scrolling through pictures of people I haven’t seen in decades, and entering a lively political debate in the comment section of a shared news article, I feel so much better about life and myself!”   Said no.one.ever. I’d ask you to share this on some social media site, but that would be a tad hypocritical.  If you can relate though, do what you gotta do. And with that,...

An Important Warning: When Simplifying Life Get’s Complicated #Lifesimplified

  This post may contain affiliate links to support the cost of this blog.     Don’t let the magazines, or other blogs fool you.  I’m here with a warning today.  One of those neon colored, you better stop what you’re doing and read this kind of warnings. Why the warning you may ask, it’s really quite simple.  I want to spare you the disillusion and the heart ache that following a magic formula or a list will make your life magically perfect. Because quite frankly there is no book, no blog, no magazine,...
