Our family has avoided sick visits for over 2 years.

Now, I’m not trying to say we’re super healthy and never get sick, we’ve had our fair share of sickness during these past 2 years.  We’ve had colds, congestion, coughs, rashes and a couple awful stomach bugs but all of these ailments have been treated naturally at home.

Through our natural methods we’ve avoided major illnesses and over the counter medicines and haven’t had to visit a doctor for illness or be placed on antibiotics.

We’ve treated our ailments with rest, nourishing foods, essential oils, hydration, cell salts, apple cider vinegar, fermented cod liver oil and other methods, depending on the ailment.

While I have been treating my family naturally for a couple of years now, I still have so much to learn!

Natural Remedies

I wanted to share with you about an eCourse I’m currently taking called ‘A Parents Guide to Natural Remedies’. It’s about learning how to naturally treat fevers, coughs, bugs, rashes, boo boos and more.

I’ve already learned some new methods of naturally treating sickness just after the first two sessions! I’m really looking forward to applying my new knowledge in treating my family and hopefully we can continue to avoid sick visits.

‘A Parent’s Guide to Natural Remedies’ is normally priced at $99 but is part of a bundle sale going on this week.

So, for $29.97, you’ll get this $99 eCourse (plus many more eBooks, eCourses, printables and some bonuses)!!


This Natural Remedies eCourse alone makes the entire bundle worth the $29.97!

9 Reasons to Love Cloth Diapers_m

I’ve been cloth diapering for 5 years now! I love cloth diapering and am so glad I decided to use cloth diapers when I was expecting my first baby.

9 Reasons to Love Cloth Diapers 

1. Saves Money

Cloth diapering saves money. After the initial investment of $100 to $500 in cloth diapers, you only need to budget for detergent. Cloth diapering frees up money for other household expenses.

2. Environmentally Friendly

Regardless of the method of diapering your baby, there is an environmental impact. If you choose to cloth diaper, you use water to wash those diapers. However, there is no waste going to a landfill from cloth diapering!

3. Better for Baby

Cloth diapering reduces a baby’s exposure to chemicals that are prevalent in most disposable diapers. There are chlorine/latex/fragrance free disposable diapers on the market but they are more expensive.

4. Prevent Blowouts

If you’re exclusively breastfeeding and use disposables, your baby will have blow outs. Cloth diapers do a better job of containing the mess (specifically up the back). After cloth diapering three exclusively breastfed babies, we’ve never had a blow out in a cloth diaper.

5. No Stinky Trash

We live in a rural area and do not have weekly trash pickup. We carry our trash to the landfill once every 6 weeks (thanks to recycling, cloth diapering, and composting, there isn’t much trash.) If we were using disposable diapers we’d probably have to go weekly due to the smell and amount of waste that the diapers would create.

6. No Worrying About Running Out of Diapers

If you’re running low on diapers, just wash a load. This eliminates those quick trips to the store because you’re almost out of diapers.

7. Cloth Diapers are Cute

Forget boring white diapers with cartoon characters printed on them, cloth diapers are available in bold colors and prints, making diapering a little more fun.

8. Your Child May Potty Train Earlier

Cloth diapers tend to make babies more aware of being wet since they don’t contain absorbent gels and your child feels the wetness more. This awareness may lead to earlier potty training.

9. You May Be Able to Diaper Subsequent Babies for FREE

All of our cloth diapers were still in good condition when our third baby was born so we had to spend absolutely nothing on diapers for her! (I did sell a couple blue diapers so I could buy her a couple pink diapers because baby girl needed a little bit of pink.) We’ve diapered her for FREE!

Household management and motherhood sometimes leave me feeling overwhelmed.

I often feel like I’m in a hamster wheel – always moving but never getting anywhere.

Every day, I’m preparing meals, doing laundry, wiping bottoms, washing dishes, rocking babies, cleaning toilets and I wake up and do it all the next day. I am always going but nothing is ever completed and that can sometimes be discouraging!

Messy Kitchen

I love my role as a homemaker and mother but many days I need to know that I’m not alone and most of all, I need encouragement.
