Take The Pledge…

In a world where there is an over-abundance of organic foods, supplements, nutritional information, Naturopathic doctors and healthy living books, it is difficult to conceive that others are struggling to merely survive.  I have come to appreciate so many companies, like MegaFood, that are supporting ethical practices and considering the needs of the community around them.  To often we forget that every ‘living soul’ makes up this planet, and we are responsible for being the change we wish to see in the world.

Oh So Soft…

‘Loving the skin your in’ is a statement I find very hard to identify with.

I’ve had such trouble finding the right skin care products that perform well for my skin type, as the texture of my skin has never been smooth, especially in my T-Zone area.  I have also spent a lot of time, money and energy figuring out that my skin was a combination of sensitive and dry.  

Trying new products when I am unsure of the outcome is really hard when my skin is currently settled into a routine.  I was given free samples to try of Derma-E Hydrating Night Creme & Microdermabrasion Scrub in exchange for my honest opinion.  I became curious as to how my skin would react to such products, so I decided to use this skin care over a period of 7 days, my results are below.   Continue reading

The depths of one’s heart knows the truth if one is willing to truly search beyond all logical reason.  As part of the Homeschool Review Crew we were asked to review Shepherd, Potter, Spy–and the Star Namer written by Peggy Consolver – Author.  It is always a delight to engage with a book that fascinates the mind and captures the heart, and this book did just that.  This review will give you a glimpse into a world foreign to most and an understanding of life during Joshua’s time.        Continue reading

Giving Grace…

 

~In the midst of my life, which on some days feels very overwhelming & often times complicated I forget to give myself grace.  My personality tends to lean towards the organized, highly structured, routine sort of life, and when I feel chaos is swirling all around me, this is when I need to recognize, there is grace for me in that moment.  In the times I forget to give myself grace I am also forgetting to give my children grace, and then the conflict begins to unravel between us.   Continue reading
