Sunday Takeaways – 11-22-20

What a blessed Sunday it was! First, our Sunday School hour was shared among the classes as we had a guest speaker. She shared her heart for the Lord and others as she shared her humanitarian work that she does on a tiny island on the other side of the world. It was so goodContinue reading “Sunday Takeaways – 11-22-20”

Making Butter

I attempted making butter today! I felt so Pioneer-ish. But, man, I’m glad I have a stand mixer I don’t know how long it must’ve taken with an old-fashioned churn. Philip grew up with a dairy cow. They milked each morning and always saved the cream for ice cream on Saturday nights. When Philip startedContinue reading “Making Butter”

From the Empty Nest: Kitchen Hacks

I’m starting with kitchen hacks because I love to cook. I have an eye for good recipes and love to make all kinds of food. I get bored easily so I don’t have a menu rotation and we don’t make any of the same things each week. We ate together as a family every nightContinue reading “From the Empty Nest: Kitchen Hacks”

Young Living’s Balance Complete

Over the last few months I have tried all of Young Living‘s protein shakes and meal replacement shakes. More for variety than anything else. I’m surprised to discover that I actually enjoy the Balance Complete the most because I’ve heard some people just don’t like the taste. I feel Balance Complete has the most moderateContinue reading “Young Living’s Balance Complete”

Hamster Wheel

Do you exercise? What do you like to do? What kind of exerciser are you? Up until about 15 years ago I was not an exerciser. I hadn’t been active and I recognized that it wasn’t a good idea to continue that way. So I made a change. I was really regular for a numberContinue reading “Hamster Wheel”

From the Empty Nest

I recently did a Bible study that challenged us all to be mentors. There is always someone we can encourage and teach. I’ve been feeling called to share more motherhood tips lately and that can be scary. I am not and have never been the perfect mother. There are several things I wish I’d doneContinue reading “From the Empty Nest”

Body Burden

Have you heard of Xenoestrogens? Xenoestrogens can be natural or synthetic and they mimic the estrogen in our bodies. Synthetic Xenoestrogens are found in phthalates. Phthalates are most commonly found in personal care products mostly hidden under the word “fragrance.” These fake estrogens cause a hormonal imbalance and then things go wonky. These are severalContinue reading “Body Burden”

Thieves Fruit and Veggie Soak

I’m a casual fruit and veggie washer at best. A quick rinse with water and I’d be on my way. If I even did that. Then I started learning what all might be on my fruit and veggies and geez, I’m glad I didn’t die! Another big factor that prompted me to start washing myContinue reading “Thieves Fruit and Veggie Soak”

Wedding Panic

I attended a wedding yesterday that was the sweetest, most faith filled wedding I’d been to in a while. It moved me to tears so many times! (Maybe hormonal empty nest mothers shouldn’t attend weddings.) I almost didn’t attend. We have just began to know this couple and I felt like my husband knew themContinue reading “Wedding Panic”
