Why Your Baby’s Gut Health Is Important

This post is sponsored by Evivo but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.   The majority of American babies appear healthy at birth.

From The Heart Scripture Writing Plan | August

Sweet friends, want to join me in something new? Well, not really new…but new to this site! One of my favorite ways to read and study God’s Word has been to hand copy Scripture. I have been copying Scripture for about 3 years now and it, along with Bible Journaling, has completely changed the way I read and study the Bible. I love it so much, and hardly miss a day. Writing down Scripture makes the words come to life…

Why And How To Start Journaling As A Mom

Why should you, as a mom, know how to start journaling?  Journaling can be a way of freedom for the mom that feels stuck, either mentally or physically.   What do I mean?   Well, when I was a teenager I had a lot of issues.  I had overprotective parents and zero friends. Yea, it was a bad situation.  So during the summers I really had nothing to do, no camp, no parks, nothing except time to journal. This outlet…

The 4 Personality Gems test is one of my favorites and comes from the motivational speaker Dani Johnson.  Johnson says, “You have all four Gem characteristics in you. …

Toddlers love to snack…they graze all day long! That grazing is actually healthier for them in the long run,…
