Making it Easier to Take Healthy Snacks On the Go! (Win a$100 Gift Certificate to Sweetbottoms Baby)

I think every mom has her reasons behind the products she chooses for her home, but here are a few of mine: Avoiding toxins, as much as possible, for healthier development of little bodies. Choosing responsibly-made products our family can buy with a clean conscience Opting for quality reusable products over disposables to reduce our earth-burden. We’d like to leave Creation as clean as we can. Those reasons form the basis behind a lot of what I use with my babies and children, including cloth […]

Organize Your Life With ListPlanIt

Organize Your Life With a ListPlanIt Subscription (Review + Giveaway!)

By Jessica Smartt, Contributing Writer I love organization, but my life is seldom organized. I’m an orderly person who’s not very orderly. Can anyone else relate? Needless to say, it can be frustrating sometimes. I have plenty of excuses: “I keep up with it in my head.” (Hmmm.) “I’m too busy to be organized.” (Tyranny of the urgent, anyone?) “Every time I get really organized, someone else/life/reality messes it all up. Why bother?” What it really boils down to is that I haven’t found a […]

Pear and Ginger Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Pear and Ginger Slow Cooker Oatmeal

By Kresha Faber, Contributing Writer If breakfast time in your house is anything like mine, there’s a prerequisite that it be quick and easy. Even on our “slow” mornings, making breakfast just isn’t something I want to take the time to do, despite the fact that I love sitting down and sharing breakfast with our kiddos. So, lately I’ve been relying on the slow cooker to provide morning meals that don’t take any thought or time to prepare. Just serve and go! It started when […]

Sometimes, anxiety just plain gets the best of me. And, I’m not spending time reading the Bible nearly as much as I’d like – the perpetual struggle (sigh). So believe me, no obnoxious “mommy pride” from this girl. But can I share with you one teensy, little victory, that my husband and I are probably inordinately proud of? […]
