35 Resources for the Naturally Minded Mom

natural-mothering-bundle-600x400-sale

Have you ever wished that motherhood came with a manual? I have. Though I have slowly grown in my mothering know-how and ability over the years, and have come to really love being a mom, it hasn’t always been an easy road. I had no clue what I was doing when I got to the end of my first pregnancy (you know, the part where you actually get to hold a baby!) and realized that after all the months of sickness and fatigue and then […]

16 Books On My “To Read” List

same person except for books

I firmly believe that one can never own enough books. Our family has been on a mission to simplify and declutter over the past year or so. Books are one of those areas where I begin to sweat profusely and develop nervous twitches when I attempt to weed out the ones I want to get rid of. Making the switch to primarily digital books has made all the difference for me. Now I don’t have too worry about having too many, and I can also […]

4 Books That Have Helped Me to Simplify

4books

Learning to slow down and simplify isn’t a lesson that I have learned easily, or one that I am finished learning, but it’s certainly one worth pursuing. Over the past 2 years or so, there have been several blogs and ebooks that have spurred me on towards the goal of cutting back on the non-essentials, in order to free up time and space for the things that matter most. These four books have been particularly inspirational and helpful for me on this journey of simplifying. […]

The Magic of Making Things Yourself {Plus a 5-Minute Salt Scrub for Tired Feet}

magic of making things yourself ribbon

“Hi, my name is Stephanie and I like to make things that normal people just buy from the store.” I’m not sure at what point in my natural living journey I became a “make-it-myself” junkie. The first time that you create a product you would otherwise have purchased, and then marvel at how awesome (and cheap and natural and easy) what you just made is, I think that’s when the magic (and then, the addiction) begins. Being on the road this year, I have far […]

What On Earth Do You Do With 97 eBooks?

what to do with 97 ebooks

I was hesitant back when I bought my very first eBook, and even more so when my husband encouraged me to purchase a Kindle a couple years back. The feeling of holding a book, its pages beneath my fingers, being able to flip from section to section, and all of those tangibles that make a book a “book” had me questioning whether eBooks were really something I would ever come to appreciate in the same manner. Note: This post is from last year, but the […]

97 Ways to Solve Your Biggest Homemaking Challenges

UHeB large HomemakingBundle_revised

Note- This sale has now ended. Hopefully we’ll be doing it again next year! :) Let’s face it. Being a homemaker is a hard job. (Can I get an amen?) Not only is it the hardest role I’ve ever taken on, but it’s also one of the most important. Homemaking encompasses how I care for my family, how I nurture my relationship with my husband, how I raise my children, how I steward the time and resources that I’ve been given. It’s this incredibly crucial […]

Weekend Links {and the project I can finally announce!}

UHeB large HomemakingBundle_revised

Craning out necks up to gaze at the beautifully lit-up Eiffel Tower in Paris. We loved Paris… definitely want to go back there! Links I loved this week: A letter for a tough season @ FIMBY.

In Defense of the iPhone Mom @ Growing in a Shrinking Culture (hat tip to The Humbled Homemaker) It’s a Good Week to Be a Yes Mom @ Inspired to Action. […]
