This is Your Last Chance (And You Don't Have to Read Everything)

I just want to remind you that today is your last chance to get the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle. After today it's gone, and you will have missed your chance to get all of these amazing resources at a ridiculously low price!

In case you're feeling overwhelmed by all of the materials included in this huge bundle (over $1,000 worth of products...), I want to gently encourage you that you don't have to read every book, take every course, or take advantage of every freebie.  You will still get your money's worth.  Think of this as a library you can access whenever the need or desire arises.  Once you've downloaded your ebooks, you will have them available as you need them--no need to digest every one of them over the next few weeks.  You are completely free to read which ones you choose and take which courses you choose.  You may never have the desire to read all of them, and that's okay.

If you are still on the fence whether this bundle is right for you, I'd encourage you to look at the list of what's included, and pick maybe 10-15 that really interest you.  You will probably find that it's well worth $29.97, even if you just pick a few.  I want to share with you the items I am most interested in.


  1. The Eczema Cure by Emily Barlett.  I, myself, still sometimes have eczema flare up, as well as several of my children.  While we went on the GAPS diet for awhile, we were unable to continue, so I am very interested in this resource.  This resource alone is normally $29.95, so that covers the cost of my bundle.
  2. The Nourished Metabolism by Elisabeth Walling.  This one's all about metabolic health and involves no crazy diets!  I definitely think my metabolism needs some help and can't wait to read this one.  This ones normally costs $30; again the cost more than pays for the bundle.
  3. Traditional Remedies for Modern Families by Sarah Pope.  Sarah is a favorite blogger of mine at The Healthy Home Economist, and I can't wait to read her tips.  Normally priced at $9.99.
  4. Essential Oils & Natural Health by Jessie Hawkins (Vintage Remedies).  This one, I am SO excited about.  I've been learning about essential oils on my own and using them for awhile now, but this course looks AWESOME!  And the value is amazing--this incredible course normally costs $95, but is included in this bundle!
  5. Grocery Savings Made Simple.  I told you all about this when it was available for whatever price you could pay, and this is something I definitely am enjoying learning from.  It's all about saving money on groceries, even while feeding your family a healthy diet!  And the normal price of it is $37.
  6. A Practical Guide to Children's Health.  This one is a hand book of basic, well-researched information for parents to turn to when they need help with health.  There are several topics included that are important to parents, like super foods, special diets, picky eaters, healthy snack ideas, milk, grains and sugar, healthy recipes, OTC medications, prescription medications, vaccines, herbal remedies for common conditions, sleep issues, herbal guide, alternative practitioners, organic clothing and bedding, car seat safety, and more.  Normally $17.95.
  7. Making Organic Food Affordable:  A Step-by-Step Approach for Lowering Your Costs by 50% or More by Tara Wagner.  I purchase a lot of organic food (when I am able), and sure do need tips on lowering the cost of that.  We don't do well eating pesticides, so I buy what we can organic.  This one normally costs $18.00.
  8. Natural Soap Making: Cold Process Soap Basics & Recipes by Jan Berry.  Currently I have a dear friend who makes soaps and sends some to us, but I'd like to learn how to make our own some day, or at least teach my girls.  Normally $9.99.
  9. Whole Foods for the Everyday Cook:  Over 100 Natural Recipes for Everyday Cooking.  This is a nice-sized cookbook ebook and gets rave reviews on Amazon.  I'm looking forward to some new recipes!  Normally $6.99.
  10. Kids Eat Real Food: How to Raise Kids Who LOVE Real Food by Vanessa Pruitt.  I have one child in particular who is more attracted to junk food than the others.  This book has some great ideas (and recipes) to get children to love REAL food.  And normally, it's $16.99.
So there are 10 books/courses I want to start off with.  If I bought these individually, I would have spent about $272!  There is so much more included in this bundle--it is such a great deal!  I'd love it if you'd tell me what books/courses/products interest you most from this bundle.

Don't forget, today, September 15th is the last day to get your bundle!  Be sure to get it before the time's up!

How Much is Your Family's Health Worth?

 

So, for a while I've been promoting the Ultimate Bundles.  Why?  Well, it's certainly not because I make a ton of money from them, though sometimes I make a little.  One reason I get involved with these bundles is that I believe they provide tremendous value.  The products in this bundle are worth over $1,000.  There are several products I'm interested in that cost more than that, individually.

Another reason I'm promoting the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle is because I am really interested in learning about health for my family.  After learning over the years that doctors don't usually provide cures but just treat symptoms, and experiencing the ill effects of that plus using chemicals in our home, I began the journey of learning how to treat my family myself (and have great success with it).  I always find it exciting to "further my education" when it comes to taking care of  my family.

I am passionate about sharing with others about health.  There are so many people suffering with illnesses these days, whether it be allergies or cancer, when I believe God has provided us ways to be healthy.  If you had the ability to learn how to help your family become more healthy, or keep the good health you have now, wouldn't you want to take that opportunity?  And what would that be worth?  Isn't it worth $29.97?

I have to be honest here and say that I prefer real, tangible, hold-in-your-hands books.  I guess I'm "old-fashioned" that way.  However, several resources these days are just not available in print books so I've had to learn to use ebooks for this purpose.  I don't think that makes the material less valuable at all.  Not to mention there are several ecourses included in this bundle.  Several of these are in video or audio form, which makes learning easy.

So I am going to take some time aside and learn some more to further my knowledge to help my family (and myself) be healthy and learn about some issues we still have.  I probably won't read every book or take every course, but I know the ones I want to read and take are regularly priced way more than $29.97!

I hope you will take this opportunity and get this great deal while it's available!  You will have many, many resources at your fingertips to help your family be on the road to health.

If you're ready for a health education...

A New Day Tomorrow


A life once spent, is irrevocable!

(Adoniram Judson)

"Show me, O LORD, my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life!" Psalm 39:4

A life once spent, is irrevocable.  It will remain to be contemplated through eternity.

The same may be said of each day. When it is once past, it is gone forever! All the marks which we put upon it--it will exhibit forever. Each day will not only be a witness of our conduct, but will effect our everlasting destiny. How shall we then wish to see each day marked with usefulness!

It is too late to mend the days which are past, but the future is in our power. Let us, then, each morning, resolve to send the day into eternity in such a garb as we shall wish it to wear forever. And at night, let us reflect that one more day is irrevocably gone--indelibly marked!

"Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom!" Psalm 90:12

DIY Interior Design


Interior design - Color and texture as a basis for interior design

(Guest post)

When you are designing the way you want your home to look like on the inside, it is important to work thematically. Whilst no one wants a home that is too rigidly confined by a theme in it;s deign, you need to avoid having completely disparate designs through different rooms, as that will simply make the place feel a bit confused. So, in order to avoid both over and under thinking it, why not play with more subtle ideas for your basis of the house’s interior, and use that base as a jumping point from which you can differ the rooms. Here, have a think about how you can use similarities in color and texture or materials as a way to tie the rooms in the house together, without them being too obviously similar.

In terms of color, not every one wants their house to be the same color throughout, and that is not what is being suggested. In fact, it can be really nice to change things up as you move through the house, giving the place a bit of variety, and keeping things exciting. You will find however, that veering too hard form the palette will only leave the place looking a bit random. For instance, if one room is a taupe off white, and then the next is a shocking pink, then you will likely feel that the place has not been planned very well. However, if the net room was a moss green, in keeping with the earthy tones of the warm taupe color, then you would likely feel like it was a daring but well planned change in mood. So,consider your color choices in terms of their ‘feel’ rather than their differences, and ensure that the ‘feel’ of the house remains consistent, rather than the actual color remaining the same. That said, there is nothing against having one color throughout, though in many cases, dark colors for a whole house will feel a tad oppressive!

In terms of texture, you will need to think in a similar way as color, and in fact, you will want to think in conjunction with color, in order to ensure that the place feels like it flows correctly, rather than having a marked difference between each room. Using the same textures and materials throughout the house will feel boring or too uniform, but having wildly different feeling materials throughout will feel at odds with the flow of design. For instance, you may have a thick rug on a hard floor in one room, and having the place fully carpeted in a boring pile in the next will feel a bit strange. So, try to think about how you can align the two styles; a hessian weave matting will feel like the hardness of the room previously have been transferred in to the next, whilst retaining the full covering, perhaps that difference is one that makes more sense than the stark difference of the former option.

Essentially, keeping the themes of color and texture similar through the home will mean that you are able to ensure that the styles that you love can sit together without clashing. Putting a modern sofa next to an antique coffee table will only work if there is something that ties them together. Color and materials working together is something that makes this very doable, so think about working contrast and palette similarities in to the over view of your design in the home for the best effect possible.

Because Christmas is Coming

My children are busy, once again, working on some big surprise for me.  This has become a tradition for them.  I have to "hide" in my room for a little bit as they work on gifts for me, "because Christmas is coming".  And this has been going on since Mother's Day passed.  How I am so blessed, I do not know.  But my children love to make gifts for me.  I think that must mean they like...love...me?

What can I do but relish in this love they shower upon me?  I work hard, though imperfectly~~my heart is for them.  I am so blessed that they love me so.

I hope they know how much I love them.  By God's grace, I will show them every day.

A True Home

Breakfast under the Big Birch, from 'A Home' Series, C.1895

“A true home is one of the most sacred of places. It is a sanctuary into which men flee from the world’s perils and alarms. It is a resting-place to which at close of day the weary retire to gather new strength for the battle and toils of tomorrow. It is the place where love learns its lessons, where life is schooled into discipline and strength, where character is molded.

Few things we can do in this world are so well worth doing as the making of a beautiful and happy home. He who does this builds a sanctuary for God and opens a fountain of blessing for men.

Far more than we know, do the strength and beauty of our lives depend upon the home in which we dwell. He who goes forth in the morning from a happy, loving, prayerful home, into the world’s strife, temptation, struggle, and duty, is strong--inspired for noble and victorious living. The children who are brought up in a true home go out trained and equipped for life’s battles and tasks, carrying in their hearts a secret of strength which will make them brave and loyal to God, and will keep them pure in the world’s severest temptations.”

How to Save Money on Groceries (No Coupons Required)

If you've been following my blog for awhile, you probably know that I like to feed my family healthfully.  I feel like eating foods that were made by God and not in a laboratory are what will give us the best health in life and make us best able to serve Him.  But this can get expensive!  Especially with the price of food going up, it gets harder a
nd harder to stay within budget.  Even if you don't have any certain diet restrictions when you're shopping, I imagine it can be hard to not spend too much money.

That's why I am SO excited to learn about Grocery Savings Made Simple.  It is a course that is going to be starting on September 2, 2014.  This is the only time this year the course will be available, and it runs for four weeks.  Here is a little bit about this course from the mom who created it, Shannon Brown:
  • It guides moms through setting up a sustainable grocery savings system that works for their unique families' nutrition needs, including real food, gluten free, etc.
  • Requires no coupons, store circulars, or weekly meal planning, so it continues working even during the busiest seasons of life.
  • This is the system I have personally used to save thousands on my grocery budget even during the most difficult year of my life, so I know it works! 
Those points are just amazing to me!  No coupons, store circulars, or meal planning needed?  And it works for real food?  I am definitely interested.  The way I currently shop requires those four things (though there aren't many coupons for real food).  I am excited to learn how to save money even without those things.

Here is the best news.  From now until August 26, 2014, this course is on sale.  It normally costs $37, but the sale price is...Pay What You Can.  Yes, you read that right.  So I am definitely signing up and wanted to share with you, as I thought it might help you.  You can go here to read more about Grocery Savings Made Simple and/or register.  While the sale price lasts until 8/26, registration for this year's course will not close until 8/31.

I hope this course is a blessing to you.
