How to keep your family healthy!

Hey everyone! Well its that time of year again when everyone gets stuffy or runny noses and the flu bug hits. There are lots of ways to stay healthy during this time and I am going to share how our family treats illnesses. A little disclaimer (I am no doctor or claim to be one I am just going to share what works for our family.) First of all we definitely try to eat as healthy as we can but still the flu sneaks in sometimes. Our family tries to avoid over the counter medicine if at all possible. To start our day we take fish oil I know this sounds gross but we have found a fish oil that even the kids enjoy taking. It is called Barleans lemon flavored fish oil and it comes in a liquid form and you just take 2 tsp a day. Another way is to use essential oils. They work wonderful, right now I use the Radha brand of 100% therapeutic oils but there are many brands to choose from. When my kids are stuffed up we rub eucalyptus oil on there necks, for headaches I rub peppermint on the back of my neck and behind my ears. We also use a diffuser. Lavender not only smells good but helps to relax and reduce stress. Lavender oil is also great to help kids sleep. Tee tree oil is great to dry up cold sores on the outside of your mouth and the list goes on and on. Of course if the flu bug becomes so severe we do use regular medicine but if we can avoid it. The natural way is best. We also homeschool which helps with the kids not coming down with every cough or sniffle that floats around in schools. We use all natural cough medicine by Zarbees made with honey and other natural ingredients. This is how we combat the flu season.What are some ways you knock out the flu? Leave a comment below and share your natural remedies. God Bless!

Hello everyone!


Today I just wanted to give a short little explanation about my curriculum books that I have created for my children. First of all, I created them specifically for my daughter that learns differently from the norm. She is a right-brained thinker and a very artistic and critical thinker. My daughter did not like the standard read and answer questions as most curriculum books are laid out this way. So I had to get creative. I realized she learned best when she was able to choose a subject that interested her, and the information stuck in her head! I was so thrilled! So I scoured the internet trying to find a curriculum that would do just what she needed. I did not find anything that I liked so I decided to create my own. And so A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum was born!!! Both of my girls use …

Stand Still And Let God Move!

Do you ever feel like you pray and pray and nothing happens? Maybe you you try to take situations into your own hands and it just causes more stress to your life?

Well that's how I feel. Lately I have been praying for multiple things and in my impatient heart nothing is happening. But the Lord reminded me that he is an on time God. He has a perfect plan for my life if I will just sit back and stand still and let him move. So I am, and it's funny how things begin to happen or fall into place when you least expect it. I am so thankful that the Lord speaks to my heart. Just the other day my husband had some good news and then something irritating happened and the Lord showed me how the devil likes to seek and destroy. You see in our happy moment something came up that was just simply irritating and the devil tried to still our joy. I am thankful that the Lord gave me the insight to see this and rebuke the devil!
With Thanksgiving upon us I am reminded of all the blessings the L…

The Contented Homemaker

Hello Everyone,

Lets chat for a bit. For as long as I can remember I have longed to be a homemaker. Sure there are a lot of girls who wish to grow up and have a huge career and make lots of money etc. But for me I have always wanted to be a wife and mother. Sound boring? Well I will tell you that the life of a wife and mother is far from boring and it is the highest calling that God has for a women. I have always longed to be like Caroline Ingalls and to live in a tiny house somewhere on the prairie. She was content where ever she was as long as she had God and her family. I want to raise my children as she did firm but loving. I want to honor and respect my husband for all that he is and does and to Glorify God in all that I do. Am I perfect? NO, I fall short in so many ways. The wonderful thing is that God molds me and makes me into what he wants me to be daily. We live in a day and age where so many women are not content and satisfied with life. Maybe its because as homemakers and…
