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”

Sunday Takeaways 10-18-20

Finally getting this done on Friday-it’s been quite the week! In Sunday School we were in 1 Kings 18 and the story of Elijah versus the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel. Two things that really struck me about this story that the speaker pointed out. In verse 21 Elijah calls the people out. KindContinue reading “Sunday Takeaways 10-18-20”

Beautiful Blooms of Fall

Last bloom. Late bloomer. Still as beautiful as the first bloom. Nothing late. Bloomed in it’s time. Beautiful bloom of fall. The bloom is fading. Still first blush of youth with the wisdom of age. Life is not half over, it’s half begun. So much beauty to behold. Still much beauty to give. Beautiful bloomContinue reading “Beautiful Blooms of Fall”

Sunday Takeaways – September 13, 2020

I know it’s not Sunday and it’s not September either but I was going to throw this bulletin away and thought it had some good points. I probably won’t remember context, but maybe these points will give you something to think about. Sunday School class was again the Ray Vanderlaan video series from the 90’s?Continue reading “Sunday Takeaways – September 13, 2020”

You Are Not Alone

I was having an oil conversation the other day and the person replied that it was too confusing. I can see why she would say that. We are trained by Western medicine to go to the pharmacy, pick up a prescription and do exactly what the pharmacist tells us too. We are trained to readContinue reading “You Are Not Alone”

Are You Worthy?

I just spent an hour and half trying to explain Instagram to someone who’s never done anything with it. We looked at pages of people we admire, people who sell the products he wants to sell, influencers, relatives and friends and at the end he still said, I don’t get it. What’s the point? WhatContinue reading “Are You Worthy?”
