“Bug spray!… I don’t use it.” That is usually my reply when friends ask what I use or what brands I like or what natural products actually work. My children and my husband and I don’t get bitten by bugs all that often and we live a lot of our lives outdoors. Yes, bugs may(…)
Lard!!! LARD!!! You may say… that’s what most people say when they hear we cook with lard. “Don’t you know that stuff ‘ll kill ya’!” “That’s what my mama cooked with back in the day.” “Your a nurse and you use saturated fats?”
Well, I think it may be about time to return… but slowly it will be, I’m sure. Life feels somewhat back to normal, although what is normal now? Normal will now be different for the rest of my life. Normal will still include the loss of my baby boy and a day doesn’t go by(…)
I originally intended to post this on Easter Sunday and then completely forgot. It was written and ready to post… I didn’t want to scrap it and thought it was still good to share; even though it is quite a bit after Easter. It’s so easy to get caught up in the here and now;(…)
It has been a few weeks since I’ve posted and blogging at the moment has not been much in my thoughts during that time. I actually forgot about it for a bit. That said, my heart really isn’t in it’s usual place. What I find fascinating and excited to share with you isn’t as exciting(…)
Avi (God is my Father) Tobias (God is good) Mintz was born this January 5, 2015 at 6:02pm. He was only 21 weeks 2 days. He never took his first cry, he never got to see his papa’s face or know his mama’s love, but he is with Jesus and that love is a much(…)
Dear friends and family, Each year I start a letter to send out and never get it completed. I also usually have a photo to attach and even that doesn’t get sent out. I plan on sending it via email, even though it’s much more fun to get mail… so this year I’m starting earlier(…)
May God richly bless your Christmas Day! May your celebration be very special and enjoyed with family and friends. Remember the reason for celebrating… that by the miraculous virgin birth of Christ Jesus and His death and resurrection we now have an everlasting hope. Hope that pervades our days, provides rest for our nights and(…)
Each year I make a decent number of Christmas gifts. Some years are more elaborate than others and sometimes everyone gets something handmade and other years just a few people. Sometimes I make a huge variety of items and some years it’s just a lot of one or two ideas.
I’ve been tired of the same old, same old for lunch lately. I’ve gotten stuck in a rut having the same thing over and over. The kids don’t seem to mind, but I do! Also, I’m really looking for GOOD food and I’m just stora eating lunch to get me through til dinner, but not(…)
Two week ago we celebrated Thanksgiving with our Bible study and we were in charge of the turkey. I cooked a 27lb bird for 16 adults and 18 kids… we ended up with LOTS of leftovers! I’m not complaining! We had some for dinner that week and I froze some for future use!
I couldn’t post this on Thursday or before since I hadn’t made it and didn’t know exactly what I was going to make too far in advance! However… The food was delicious even though I was only responsible for 3 different sides! Thanksgiving foods tend to be traditional in that families have their tried and(…)
I just wanted to post a short and sweet note to wish you a special day filled with joy, thankfulness and family! I know some of you may not be able to spend the day with loved ones who are far away or who are no long with you in this world. As Believers we(…)
I know its been a while since my last post about doTERRA essential oils, so I thought maybe it might be time for another. As we’ve been using them more and more I’ve found more and more uses for them! Amazing how that works!
