6 Educational Toys For Toddlers

I love my toddler with every ounce of my being.  But sometimes she can act like a true banshee.  Her energy level is comparable to that of the animated Tasmanian devil.  Running in circles, shouting words and phrases only she can understand, and leaving a cloud of smoke and a huge mess in any and… Continue reading 6 Educational Toys For Toddlers

How To Harvest Your Aloe Vera House Plant- A Step-By-Step Guide

I probably don't have to convince you of all the medicinal/beneficial uses that come from the aloe plant.  Chances are, you already know them and that's why you're here.  You've googled it, you've read, you've researched, and then you went out and bought your very own aloe plant to take home and care for.  Good… Continue reading How To Harvest Your Aloe Vera House Plant- A Step-By-Step Guide

Things I Learned From The Book Of Genesis- Part One

It took me nine months, an entire college-ruled notebook full of questions, two packages of markers, countless nights on the phone with my mother-n-law, and a gazillion hours of prayer and research.  But I finally finished my study on the book of Genesis. Whoa. I always let my mother-in-law point me in the direction of… Continue reading Things I Learned From The Book Of Genesis- Part One

How To Make A Pie Crust From Scratch: An Easy Recipe From The 1930’s

Amazon Try On and Prime Wardrobe Review

Amazon has everything.  Literally, everything.  I don't think there has ever been a time when I couldn't find what I was looking for (or something close enough), when I was shopping on Amazon.  I have a toddler and an infant and getting out to do some "fun" shopping never turns out to be that...well...fun.  Amazon… Continue reading Amazon Try On and Prime Wardrobe Review

Wake and Bake…Your Face?!

Remember high school?  More specifically, remember make-up trends back when our generation was in high school?  I was shopping at the mall in San Antonio a few months ago and overheard a young lady say she was buying make-up for homecoming.  Homecoming!  I know that shouldn't sound like a big deal, but you should have… Continue reading Wake and Bake…Your Face?!

Be Still And Know-When God Talks Back

The other day I walked out to my back porch, sat down in a lawn chair, dropped my head in my hands, and sobbed.  I used to think admitting that would be admitting that I am weak.  Not anymore.  Now I feel that our bodies cry because we need to release that energy.  Whether it's… Continue reading Be Still And Know-When God Talks Back

Eyelash Extensions: Are They Worth It?

My husband and I travel...a lot.  His job sites are constantly changing, so every few months we pack up our home into boxes, load up the family and everything we own, and make the haul to our next destination.  Between the career that supports our family and the trips we take for recreation, we've visited… Continue reading Eyelash Extensions: Are They Worth It?
