The 5 Best Natural Remedies for Beginners

Are you eager to start making the switch over to natural remedies, but unsure of where to start? I know that when you’re first getting started with the world of herbs, essential oils, alternative medicines and so on, it can feel daunting. Walking into a health food or vitamin store is an exercise in overwhelm. And googling what you’re trying to find out can be even worse!

Childhood is all about exploring and learning to love gardening. Don't force time with your toddlers and preschoolers in the garden. Rather, play into their curiosity and make being with you in the garden fun.

10 Ways to Include Toddlers and Preschoolers in the Garden

By Leigh Ann Dutton, Contributing Writer Being in my garden is one of my favorite things to do. I love the smell of fresh dirt and feeling the mist from the water hose as I spray my vegetables on a hot summer evening. I love planning what vegetables to grow and where I will put my herb garden. I love working with my hands and the ache of my back from tilling the soil. I love the silence and disconnect from technology. And I especially love […]

15 Tips for a More Enjoyable Pregnancy (from a soon-to-be mom of 5)

In many ways, pregnancy gets easier the more you’ve done it. You learn what works for you, you learn to relax, and perhaps most of all, you learn that it’s just a season and a relatively short one at that.

Dirty dishes piled in kitchen sink, close-up

Confessions of an imperfect homemaker (and how I survived my darker days)

I vividly remember this one lovingly-but-terribly prepared stir-fry that I served to dear friends just months after having my first baby and becoming a full time homemaker. The beef was so tough and badly cooked, you had to chew, chew, chew, and take a huge gulp of water to try to get it to go down. How they got through that awful meal so graciously, I just don’t know. Then there was the time about a year and a half later when my husband was […]

However, I have recently gotten over my reservations with taking baths. Change that – I have recently become addicted to taking baths. Detox baths, to be specific. Now I make up excuses and squeeze in the time, because I have found it incredibly rewarding. If you, too, haven’t taken a bath in a while, whatever the reason – I encourage you […]
