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 […]

Y’all. I miss you. As Keeper of the Home grows and changes, we are bringing on delightful new writers, not to mention the most a.maz.ing team every to help me run this blog baby of mine. To keep the home fires burning (or rather, the kids in {mostly} clean clothes, the grammar lessons complete, the chubby baby nursed, the husband loved-on, and proper dinners on the table), I’ve had to scale back on my writing in order to continue to run this site. Though there […]

Beat the “I’m Bored” Blues: A Summer Book List for Young Readers

What mom hasn’t heard, “I’m bored… what is there to do?” on long, hot summer days? Sending my kids to crash on a couch, in the shade of a tree, or out to the backyard fort with a good book in hand is one of my top summer fun suggestions whenever I hear those words. Over the past two years, my oldest daughter has become an increasingly voracious reader. I’ve struggled at first with knowing how to find books that are suitable for her to […]

My 2012 Reading List

In our recent decluttering and purging, I realized that I have a huge stack of books that I already own, but haven’t yet read. Being a book lover, it’s easy for me to be constantly buying new books or adding to my wish list, but with so many interesting choices already on my shelves, I chose instead to make a list of books I already have to read in the New Year. I also find that I can consume books, but not really put into practice what […]

Treating Depression Naturally: Supplements, Herbs and Foods for Feeling Better

Dealing with depression is a touchy subject. When I first began to admit to people in my life that I was struggling with depression, I got a lot of different recommendations. Most were shocked that I hadn’t been to see a doctor, some supported my desire to try to deal with it naturally but expressed concern for me, and a few even confronted me and told that I was possibly being too proud in my “healthy ways” for not being willing to use prescription medication.
