Constipation in Kids Revisited

I originally wrote this post back in 2012. Posts that old tend to get lost in the archives or forgotten about by long time readers, or new readers have never seen them. So I plan on bring back a few old posts that I think are worth looking at again. AND… I’ve grown over the last 6 years in medical knowledge and homeopathic and natural options. Some of these medical advice posts are still great, but I certainly have more to add, so read on! Continue reading “Constipation in Kids Revisited”

Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease

I don’t remember ever getting this as a kid or any friends getting this, and yet now I feel like this has been a rite of passage for my kids generation. All of my children have had it and it continues to go around in our circles! Continue reading “Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease”

So maybe this post should be held until fall… but then, I thought… sometimes seasonal allergies can linger and progress into a sinus infection.

Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated

Do I dare even open this can of worms? Why yes, I do!…

I will start off to say that we have chosen NOT to vaccinate our children. As the parents of the wonderful kids we’ve been given, we are given the right and privilege to care for them in the best way we know how. With our research, study, and prayer we have decided what we believe is best for OUR family. It is NOT my right or privilege to decide what is right for YOUR family. That is your right and responsibility! Continue reading “Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated”

My Yellow Drink

Lately my posts have been deeper, more philosophical and not super joyful.. Time for a bit of a change. I’m certainly not always in that frame of mind,although it does seem to be more of a new norm for me! Continue reading “My Yellow Drink”

CSA Delivery {Week 6}

Last year I was VERY faithful about sending out a weekly email to all the CSA subscribers about what was in their box and how to use it or different recipes using their weekly ingredients.

Here we are 6 weeks in and this is the first post/email about what our boxes contain! Continue reading “CSA Delivery {Week 6}”

Rendering Lard

Lard!!! LARD!!! You may say… that’s what most people say when they hear we cook with lard. “Don’t you know that stuff ‘ll kill ya’!” “That’s what my mama cooked with back in the day.” “Your a nurse and you use saturated fats?” Continue reading “Rendering Lard”
