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 […]

Winter Giveaway Week: Win 1 of 10 Copies of the “Better Than a Box” eBook

gluten-free-breaded-chicken-nuggets-34-500x375

Making real food understandable (and the transition to it achievable) is a huge priority for me as a blogger. Coming from a background of being raised on primarily processed foods and having to both learn to acquire a taste for real food, as well as learn to cook it, has given me a genuine desire to want to offer resources to help make the transition easier for others than it was for me. Over the past month and a half, we’ve been writing about “Real […]

No, You Don’t Have to Make Your Own Ketchup {Recipe: Homemade Cheeseburger Helper}

Homemade Hamburger Helper

Guest Post by Katie of Kitchen Stewardship I’ve done it once. Made my own ketchup, that is. It was early in my transition to real food, which was a bit more “zero-to-sixty” than normal for my generally mild-mannered nature that resists change like a toddler resists naptime. I was reading everything, buying everything I read about, making every recipe I came across, feeling like I had to do it all at once. Naturally, I ran into some burnout and some frustration. Homemade ketchup was one […]

This sale has now ended. Thanks, everyone! See you next year! :) Remember this incredible sale?!? It’s back! During our last sale, Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast, and many of you experienced prolonged power outages, were evacuated from your homes, and dealt with damage as a result of the storm, which meant that you missed out on the sale entirely. So many of you specifically asked if there was any way that you could get your own copy of the eBook bundle that we […]

21 Days to a More Disciplined Life (plus 100 free copies!)

discipline is the bridge

I’m the queen of making lofty goals that never come to fruition. Being a particularly ambitious and driven person, I tend to shoot for the starts. I write up fancy plans, reorganize my schedule, print up pretty calendars and goal charts and dive right in. None of this is bad; in fact, being goal oriented and aiming high is a good thing! The problem is that my exuberance often exceeds my capability to follow through. Time and again, my lofty plans fall flat. Over the […]

listplanit 4 lists

Fall always finds me preparing new schedules and routines, re-organizing, and yes, writing lists. There’s something about getting back into the regular everyday groove after summer that just makes me want to get organized. I held a garage sale a couple weeks ago, have been setting up a new homeschooling binder for the year, am tweaking a daily routine for myself and the kids, getting back to meal planning, and all of those good things that make my life run a little bit smoother. Whenever […]

Along with her family’s journey to minimalism and simplicity in their lives, she is also passionate about encouraging families that homeschooling isn’t as daunting as it might seem. Knowing just how different […]
