I thought I would share a few blog posts that have blessed me recently!

Why I Keep A Clutter-Free Home – I found myself agreeing with this post, and longing to be able to do this. However, we don’t have a few acres in the country. We have a very small yard, and in the winter months especially I need to be able to keep them busy! If we are ever blessed to live in the country I will be purging more toys. I have a large cabinet for them right now.

On Being Outnumbered and Teaching From Rest – “I’m finding that the hardest part of homeschooling with toddlers and babies underfoot is that the vision that lived in my head since I first dreamed up this crazy idea to homeschool looks nothing like my reality. ” Yes and Amen. I have such dreams…most days they are crushed by the reality of six children that don’t share those dreams.

You Can’t Keep Sin Out – What I got out of this post is summed up in one sentence that Amy wrote. “We MUST stop believing we can follow a formula or method and reap perfection. ” A good reminder!

Becoming Who I Am – If you have lost your mom, this post is good to read.

Finally, here is a new video that we made for our Character Badge Kickstarter Campaign that shows what our children think about Character Badges. We think it’s pretty funny. :)  (If you are reading this in an email, click here to watch it!). There are 20 days left to make a pledge to get your Character Badge set, if we don’t reach our funding goal than we will not be able to manufacture these. So now is your only chance!

The Best Homemaking Resource Of The Year is Here!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

My favorite resource of the year to share with you is here!

Over the years a lot of of different ebook bundle sales have been put together. I truly think the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is the very best one there is.

The wisest people are those who refuse to stop learning. They keep looking for new information, new ways to do things, and are willing to listen to advice from others who are pros at what they do.

Don’t be tempted to think homemaking isn’t important enough; that you don’t need to keep educating yourself. It’s vitally important, and not only affects what your house looks like, it affects your marriage, your children, and even how you can minister outside of your home.

I love a clean house but housekeeping does not come easy for me. I’m not a natural at it.  I really struggle getting breakfast on the table in the mornings, keeping up with the laundry, and having dinner ready by 6 PM.

(If you can’t see the above video, click on this link to watch it)

Resources like the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle are always a HUGE pick me up for me. I get excited about homemaking again, the same way I get excited about homeschooling after being at a curriculum fair.

If you can relate to what I just said, then Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is just for you!

It’s a complete library of carefully selected eBooks, eCourses, audio recordings, online conferences, and printable packs designed to help you turn your house into a home… without all the overwhelm.

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is an amazing resource, for one low price!!

I’ll share some of my favorite resources with you below!

The Healthy Breakfast ebook is amazing. I need easy, healthy, but yummy tasting recipes for breakfast. I’m really thankful for this new resource, as breakfast has been one big glob of oatmeal day after day. (No, I’m not a fan of oatmeal, I’m so thankful my children like it!). This 154 page ebook is $9.95 normally, but you get it along with 99 other resources for just $29.97!

I can’t just list one favorite resource from this collection. I love the Write Through the Bible curriculum, we have used them and enjoy it.

Large Family Homeschooling is written by Amy from Raising Arrows (one of my favorite bloggers!), and should be read by every homeschooling mom. The information in there is valuable and very well thought out.

Wordmarbles is a resource that my husband created! It is a fun way to encourage kind speech in your children.

Controlling the Spin Within is written by a new favorite resource –  Holly Dvorak. She did the free videos that hopefully you all watched on homemaking last week. I went through an 8 week live online course with her, and it was incredibly encouraging!

I really like the Build A Budget That Works Ebook. If you are attempting to create a budget, it gives planning sheets and clear instructions on how to set one up. It’s a great resource!

There are so many more categories and ebooks I haven’t even shared! Go see all of them here.
