Menu Board Tutorial ~ Grocery Savings Made Easy.

A menu board tutorial and the Grocery savings make simple e-course review!

If you follow on Facebook, most likely you know I enrolled in a Grocery Savings Made Simple e-course. Taking the course, inspired me to create a menu board. Today I’m giving you my menu board tutorial and sharing how the Grocery Savings Made Easy course has went for me. Allow me to make one thing clear. This wasn’t a “read it once, immediately save tons of money” type of course. In fact, if someone promises you that, they are probably […]

Replacing Advil for PMS Symptoms

Replacing Advil for PMS with natural oils

For years I struggled with horrible PMS. So much that I was thankful when my birth control stopped my periods. I later regretted my choice to use birth control, but at the time I felt it was my only choice. Once I discovered essential oils I was amazed at how well they worked for me. No more severe cramping and bloating, no more irritability and fatigue. While oils didn’t totally get rid of my symptoms, they relieved them far better […]

Better than the Coffee-House Chai Tea Recipe

Once you try this better than the coffee-house chai tea recipe, you will never go back to your Starbucks chai. This is the real stuff!

I had lived 20 years before tasting that first sip of chai tea.Then survived another three years before finding “the good stuff”. Now I’m sharing it with you. A better than the coffee-house chai tea recipe. While dating my now husband, we visited a coffee-house.

God doesn’t Care if You Don’t Vaccinate ~ True Health

God doesn't care if you don't vaccinate. Instead, there is something else that is far more important to him and your children.

Social media and the media in general are all buzzing at the moment. People are terrified of the 120+ measles cases nationwide last month. The vaccine controversy has worn me out and I have a statement to make. Ultimately, God doesn’t care if you don’t vaccinate (or if you do to be honest). For that matter, I don’t earn “brownie points” with God for feeding my family mostly organic. He’s not going to love my cloth diapered child more than […]

Make Your Own Seasoning for Breakfast Sausage

Seasoning for Breakfast sausage recipe

I don’t know when I last purchased breakfast sausage. Most of the breakfast sausage that is found in the stores makes me feel yuck. One brand in particular really affects me, and NOT in a good way. That’s why we make our own seasoning for breakfast sausage. The summer I turned 5 (I think), my grandpa discovered a small piglet in the ditch. I believe he managed to track down the farmer who had lost her, and was told he […]

A man may struggle against porn, but a woman's battle is against gossip

Gossip. It could very easily be the woman’s besetting sin. Whereas men may struggle with keeping their thoughts pure, a woman’s battle is against gossip.
