Painting the ceiling when you have white woodwork. It is not hard. Don’t let that sway you from doing it yourself or doing it at all. There are two areas I want to discuss with you. Color And Technique Let’s start with COLOR PAINT THE CEILING THE SAME WHITE AS YOU PAINTED THE CROWN MOLDING […]

I created the confessions below, some people call them affirmations, way back in 2007. Taking a verse and writing it in First Person. If you have read much about me here, you know I believe that our words are extremely powerful and will dictate what our lives look like. So we really have to watch […]
What am I into right now? Chalene Johnson! I found her on Periscope – the latest social media craze. (Get the app to check it out on your phone.) Watched a few of those. It actually took me several times of watching to “get” what she really does, but someone recommended her, so I pursued. […]
Last week I went to a Young Living Beauty School class in Des Moines, Iowa, led by Sharon Raybern. She is the daughter of Debra Raybern, author of Gentle Babies, Master Herbalist and Young Living Royal Crown Diamond. Sharon has made it her task to search out and research healthy skin care and makeup. I was excited to get her take on which makeup to use.
I implicitly trust Young Living for skin care because it is as chemical-free as it gets, not to mention infused with essential oils. These oils have been sought after and used for skin care for 1000’s of years dating back to the Egyptians, who were highly tuned into this area of concern.
Young Living does carry lip gloss (which I LOVE – it has an oil on one end and the gloss on the other end) and word has it they will come out with a tinted moisturizer and possibly a mascara in the future. But as for now, Sharon recommends these 3 lines of makeup:
I was doubly excited that I was already using Jane Iredale. Thanks Sharon for all your hard work figuring this out :)
I thought this was an excellent video on the hazards of root canals by Dr. Mercola. I had two and over the last couple of years had them both removed and replaced with a bridge. Very happy that they are out of my mouth!
Michael Hyatt recommends this tip while working on your computer or at your desk. It is a website called Focus At Will. It plays background music for the purpose of productivity. There are a number of categories. I’ve tried several and so far my favorite is called Alpha Chill. There is a free 30-day trial period (which I’m in) and then you pay $5 a month to use it. So far I like it!
People do not decide their futures. They decide their habits and their habits decide their futures! – Marcella Vonn Harting
Isn’t this one of our favorite topics ladies? I know it is. For me too. I love to see what other people are using. And then it just cracks me up when Todd Wilson and the various other experienced homeschool dads say “The curriculum doesn’t really matter. Pretty much anything will work. Teach character. Wisdom.

As of this writing we will begin our 12th homeschool year in 3 weeks. Oh my, the summer is flying fast! But I’m excited about the future and more than any other summer, I have spent most of this time ruminating, cogitating and planning the coming school year. My thoughts on being an “underwhelmed mom” […]
These are absolutely the best cups I have found for a dinner table containing children I have searched high and low for the last year for the perfect cup that will not tip over. We had some similar that we used so often AND mistakenly put in the dishwasher too many times, that are now […]
The other day I was at our Community Bible Study. It’s Thursday mornings. My 15 year old daughter is in my small group. It’s beautiful to have her in there with 10 other wise women sowing wisdom into her mind and heart. Maxed Out For the previous 3 weeks, my life has been stressful, for […]
Ahh yes. Clean and Simple. That makes me happy. Well, we all know happiness has many different facets, but I CAN say from experience that this does, in fact, help. Too Much Stuff Every now and then, the STUFF in our house completely and totally gets to me. It paralyzes me and I cannot do […]
