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. Well, up until about 5th grade, after that, I lost all my excitement lol. Each year I remember shopping for the 1st day of school outfit, getting our school supplies ready, visiting the classroom and packing our backpacks. 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...]

A Sneak Peek into How We “Do” School 2014-2015

A Sneak Peek into our Homeschool

Last year I shared with you how we "do" school, which is a combo of a co-op and homeschool. And this year we are following the same system. We take time to reevaluate each year (and pray) to ensure this is the best way we should school our children, plus this works best for our family's schedule. I'm so excited about this year because we have a new school room and I have two school-aged kiddos. I have one year under my belt now so I know a little bit about the structure needed as well … [Read more...]
