DIY Hormone Balancing Tea

DIY Hormone Balancing Tea

Written by Karli @ Feed Me Mama, Contributing Writer One of the very first areas of alternative medicine that I adopted into my own life was studying herbs and medicinal teas. Soon after I got married, I worked in a natural cosmetics shop, which introduced me to the benefits of healing and supporting your body with natural ingredients. I was fascinated with the properties of herbs- the way that chamomile tea could put me to sleep, and peppermint could wake me up, but both could help a … [Read more...]

On Being Organized

On Being Organized... The days are long but the years are short.

    Written by Allie @ The Purposeful Housewife, Contributing Writer *Please meet Allie, she's a new contributor here. I hope you'll leave a comment on how you relate to organization.  Over the past year, I have had to become a more organized person. When you have three kids in three years, a marriage and household to run, you sort of get forced into things that don't always match your personality. I've had to stop whining and just accept that my life calls for some … [Read more...]

A Day in the Life {Jam-Packed Busy Mom of 3}

A Day in the Life (A busy Mom's Day)

I’ve been a mom for 7 years now and in no way am I am expert, but I am getting much better at this gig than I was when I first became a mom. A few weeks ago we hosted small group at our own home for the first time and I was amazed by how young, yet grown up the other couples were. When I think back to my early mothering years I wasn’t anywhere close to how mature, financially responsible or spiritually strong these couple are now.  My husband was … [Read more...]

My Three Favorite DIY/Natural Skin Care Products

Easy DIY Citrus Face Scrub

Written bu Contributing Writer, Jenn @ A Simple Haven Skin care products and I have a long history. I've always struggled with breakouts and have tried just about every oral or topical product suggested by dermatologists. I'll get patches of dryness brought on by winter weather or said products. And as far as cleansers go, my tendency has been to use scrubs or harsh ones that have probably done more harm than help. I've spent way more time and money than I'd like trying to figure out … [Read more...]

Schoolwork Station

Creating a Schoolwork Station #homework #afterschool  #organization

Written by Contributing Writer, KT @ One Organic Mama My oldest son started school two weeks ago. To say the transition was seamless... would be a lie. A big lie.  He is tired, testing boundaries, but loving his school day.  He has wonderful teachers, is making friends, and has a smile on his face when he gets off the bus everyday.  We have created a few things to help us get ready for school in the morning successfully and almost independently, as well as transition back to … [Read more...]

First Days (and weeks) of School Traditions

First Days (and weeks) of School Traditions

Do you remember your first days of school as a child? I remember it being the like night before Christmas, I was so excited I could hardly sleep.

Then the first day came and the years flew by so quickly.  Now I am a mom of three and I'm having my own "mom" memories … [Read more...]

Parenting and Educating Inspiration for the Fall

Written by Contributing Writer, Jenn @ A Simple Haven For me, August feels a bit like January. It's a time to evaluate routines, dream about the (school) year to come, set some new goals, and get inspired. My kids aren't even school-aged yet, but having been a teacher for so long and with my husband in school, I naturally break the calendar into semesters. So I look forward to the fall semester with anticipation, knowing that I have just one more year with my big girl before she starts … [Read more...]

Dear Mama, You Are Enough.

Dear Mama, You Are Enough.

Written by Contributing Writer, Karli @ Feed Me Mama Last week, I broke down. I just couldn't do it anymore- the endless days of consoling, changing diapers, trying to stay on top of laundry and cooking and cleaning. Trying to remember the last time I read my Bible. Praying when I remembered to, but only asking for sanity. Balancing being a wife and mother and entrepreneur but really just struggling to keep my head above water. My own negativity, self-pity and jealousy was so thick I … [Read more...]
