Donating and Volunteering

My prayers go out to those that are being affected by hurricane Harvey.  Although we live in southern Louisiana, our home has not been damaged by this storm.  So, like many others, we feel blessed.  Knowing that we have been blessed also means that we know we must bless those less fortunate.  I pray that you also will bless those that are misplaced from their homes.Read More »

Our Little Life Hack #6: Organize Your Kids’ School Papers, Projects, and Art

The school year has begun for us and this year I decided I would implement something that I have been meaning to do the last few years since my oldest began preschool.  When our children are little, we, as parents, want to keep every single thing they do (so many firsts!) to show their progression, or simply to remember these days.  However, it all adds up so quickly, and if you keep too many things, you never do take the time to look through it and stroll down memory lane.Read More »

Do I Have Enough Space?

mustard_seed[1]Do I have enough space?

Taking into account my planting zone and what season I am in, I still have another question to ask…Do I have enough space to grow that here? Space is yet another thing to consider when growing plants. The roots and leaves need room to grow. When plants are overcrowded, they can become stunted and are more likely to suffer from diseases. Understanding the spacing needs of what you want to grow is essential to reaping an abundant harvest. Do your research and be clear about the amount of space needed to be successful.Read More »

My Afternoon Routine with Young Living Essential Oils

Every Friday you can look forward to posts on recipes with essential oils, diffusing combinations, and information on individual oils.  I’m going to start with the oils in the Premium Starter Kit because that is the way that most people start their essential oils journey, and I want to give you the tools you need to know what to do with the oils you purchase.  Haven’t purchased your starter kit yet? I’d love to be the person who helps you learn all about essential oils and their great applications, just click here to get started.

So now that I have had my Premium Starter Kit from Young Living for over a year, how have essential oils been incorporated into my daily routine?  Since I have replaced many of the beauty products and cleaning products in my house with Young Living’s non-toxic, safe, essential-oil infused products, I’ll keep this post shorter by only going over my middle of the day to afternoon routine for now.Read More »

Our Little Life Hack #5: Repurpose Your Items and Save Money!

Recently we upgraded our daughter from a toddler bed to a “big girl bed” (re: twin bed).  She was very excited to make this transition, and has been sleeping longer through the night since (Thank you Jesus!!).  The only issue we have is that she is still not potty-trained.  We’re working on it…  This means that she may end up having a leaking diaper, or an accident while she is in the bed.Read More »

What Season?

there is a season picAfter making a list of what I desired to grow, I narrowed it to the things that could grow in my zone. Now, I need to narrow it a little more. What season is it? Plants are sorted into two distinct categories: cool season (for spring and fall) and warm season (for summer). Planting in the proper season is the first step to a bountiful harvest. I use a chart for my planting zone that lists when I should start my seeds and when I should put my transplants into the ground. The reason this chart is so helpful is that if I plan on reaping a fall harvest, I usually have to begin by planting my seeds in the summer season. That means that I have to plan ahead. If I wait to plant my seeds, they might not have enough time to grow to maturity and produce an abundant harvest before the freezing temperatures of winter.Read More »

Our Little Life Hack #4: Healthy Popsicles & Avoiding Food Waste

I don’t know about you, but it seems as though on the weeks I’ve bought the 1 lb pack of strawberries, the pack is gone in a day or two.  Everyone wants strawberries! So on my next weekly grocery shopping trip, I buy the 2 lb pack of strawberries and I end up throwing away old, yucky strawberries by the end of the week because barely any were eaten.  It’s so difficult to guess whether this week will be a strawberry week or not.  By the way, this goes for lots of different fruits in my household, not just strawberries.  So what can I do to avoid wasting perfectly good produce that my kids are just “not in the mood for” this week?  Hello healthy popsicles!Read More »

Can I Grow That Here?

grow1The first lesson from the garden was to ask yourself, “What do I desire to grow?” Now, you need to honestly ask yourself, “Can I grow that here?” I mean truthfully, I would love to grow everything I eat. However, I know that is not possible and I don’t want to waste my time and energy in the garden. I want to be successful and my harvest abundant. The success of my garden depends upon me choosing the right plants for my planting zone. Therefore, I need to know what planting zone I live in. The US Department of Agriculture produces a map for gardeners that divides North America into 11 planting zones. Each zone is 10°F warmer (or colder) in an average winter than the adjacent zone. After a little research, I have learned that I live in zone 8B. Now, I look back at my list. I have two options. I can cross off anything that does not grow in this zone, or I can move to another zone. I don’t want to move, so I select plants that thrive in my zone. This decision has increased my chances for success.Read More »
