Frugal Feminine Products???

Yep, that's right today we are going to talk about feminine hygiene!

A little while back I was watching a youtube video about how there are harmful chemicals in feminine products which I have been using since starting my menstrual cycle at 12 yrs old. GASP!!!! I am so mad at myself that I never researched this myself instead I just did what every woman does, just go to the store and grab the pads and tampons off the shelf without ever looking at the ingredients. I just assumed that they were safe. If you haven't checked out HeritageWays on youtube I highly recommend you check out her 3 part series on Feminine Hygiene. Anyways after watching those videos I decided to find all-natural reusable products. I first started with cloth pads byTeamoy. I got a multi-pack with different sizes and a wet bag. Let's just say I am in love with them not only are they pretty but they are highly absorbent and they don't give me rashes like the standard disposable pads did. Then because I am a tampon user I decided to find an alternative for that. Well, let's just say that the internet led me to the menstrual cup, I know sounds gross right? Well after much research I decided on the Organi Cup. Why this cup well because its made of 100% medical grade silicone and vegan-friendly which I liked.  How does it work you might ask? Well you insert it similar to a tampon but because its a cup it catches your flow instead of absorbing it in cotton ball that is laden with chemicals, now I know that you can buy all-natural tampons but I figured why not try a cup because if it works I will never have to buy products again because most cups last up to 12 years! Can you believe that! After a few tries with the cup because I will admit it takes some practice I can say that I am in love with the menstrual cup also. I recently have ordered another one that may fit me better because every woman is shaped differently and the height of the cervix differs from woman to woman. You may have to research and figure out what cup will work best for your body. But other than that I have no problem using cloth pads and a menstrual cup, the best part is for a normal flow you can wear a cup for up to 12 hours. So you literally empty it at night and in the morning, and you go all day with no worries of having to change a tampon every 2-4 hours! That's a win for me!! I hope you found this post informative and helpful and I highly recommend trying a different alternative to Feminine Products. Until next time God Bless!

Why I created A Delight Directed Curriculum!!!

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…
