How I’m Saving $192, And So Can You!

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

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m behind on all the inside scoop of this Healthy Living Bundle. I just realized last night that there are two e-courses in the bundle that I really want to learn from, and I gave a happy squeal when I discovered they are included at the one amazingly low price! So, I want to share how I’m going to save $192 (and really much more) through the two awesome e-courses included.

There are more e-courses included then just these two, but these are what stand out to me personally.

The first is Essential Oils and Natural Health by Jessie Hawkins (Vintage Remedies). I still can’t believe this is included, as it is a $95.00 course!

Essential Oil ecourse!

 

I’ll say upfront, I use Young Living oils. In fact, I have my own website because I signed up to receive the discounts. A lot of people don’t realize that I’m a consultant with Young Living, simply because I don’t push the products on my blog a lot. Do you want to know why?

I try to write about what I feel experienced and qualified with. I’m still a newbie with the oils. I’ve been using them for about a year now, but I haven’t taken the time to read books on end and study for hours on the safety of essential oils. I signed up with Young Living simply because I felt it was the highest quality oil that I was reading about, not because I’m a devout Young Living fan who worships everything about them. I didn’t want to stress about the quality of the oil I was using, and since Young Living grows their own products, and has their seed to seal promise, I felt safe in signing up with them.

Honestly though, it was the easiest way for me to get started. I didn’t have to research 10 different companies, I just picked the one I felt the most comfortable with. I’m sure there are other great oils out there.

With that being said, I’m really looking forward to going through this essential oil e-course. I am so excited to use essential oils throughout my pregnancy, and have already had some good experiences with some oils that helped me in my first trimester. I know I’m not alone in needing to learn more about essential oils, and this seems like the perfect way to learn! Course content is delivered in the interactive student portal through audio lectures, PDF downloads, video demonstrations, interactive quizzes, and a personal course instructor for feedback, guidance, and encouragement!

MamaBaby Birthing ecourse!

The other e-course I’m super excited about is the Mamababy Birthing e-course. Kristen Burgess put this together after having had six natural births. I haven’t been pouring over the pregnancy books this time around; I guess by the time baby #6 comes I don’t feel the need to read all the cautions and warnings. But I always love to learn new tips and techniques on having an even better birthing experience.

My births have all been awesome, natural home birth experiences. But I have a pattern of every other birth being slightly harder, with a few more challenges. If my pattern holds true, this will be the more challenging birth experience. My midwife says they aren’t super challenging at all, but because my other births have been so awesome, it’s hard when things don’t go just the way I hope. So I’m going to be super prepared this time around, and hope to learn a lot from this e-course! It is a $97 value, but included in the Healthy Living Bundle through Monday!

You get all this, plus more ($1030 value!) for only $29.97! It’s a once a year offer, and I’m happy to share it with you all!

 

Modesty Rules

Modesty Rules? Should there be a hard fast set of rules for modesty? Click through to see!

No I don’t honestly believe that modesty rules! This post is about the traps that we can sometimes set for ourselves and others when it comes to the rules of modesty.  So many times modesty comes with a package list of rules. You may do this. You may not do this. This certain type of clothing is always considered immodest. This other type is perfectly acceptable. However, I want to challenge you to think about modesty not according to a strict list of rules, but about what is in your heart, and what works for you and your body shape.

Modesty cannot always be broken down into rules. There is no one size fits all rulebook. For example….(and some of these might sound really silly to some people).

Certain high heels could be considered immodest, while other high heels are not.

Some V shape necklines are cut really low and show off lots of cleavage, while other V necks are fine. Therefore you can’t say all V necklines are bad.

A shorter length skirt might be totally appropriate on one person, but the same skirt might look like a mini skirt on a different person. While I think anyone who cares about modesty can agree that mini skirts are not appropriate, you can’t set a certain inch length because ladies are all different heights. One common way to determine an appropriate skirt length for yourself is to not wear skirts that come above your knees.

A fitted blouse might look ok on someone that is petite, but could look really immodest on a woman that is busty.

Some jeans are immodest no matter what (princess written on the bottom area in sparkly colored bling!). Other jeans can be paired with a modest long shirt and it not draw attention to tight fitting areas of the jeans. You can see some examples here, here, and here. Your family standard will definitely need to take precedence; some husbands/fathers feel ok with jeans paired a certain way and others don’t. I’ve seen almost a hatred in women’s hearts towards other women who profess modesty, yet wear jeans sometimes. That is definitely not a modest nor a Christlike attitude to have.

 We are all in different seasons of life. What works for one woman will not work for the next. There might be a young lady who is working as a receptionist before she gets married, but the mama of 3 children who stays home with active young children can’t wear the same outfit and be modest. It stands to reason then, that the mama of 3 should not look at the young lady and judge her outfit, just because she can’t wear it. The young lady is not bending over to pick up children all day, chasing children, sitting on the floor playing blocks, or cleaning up the kitchen. What you do everyday makes a big difference on the outfit you wear. I hear a lot of stay at home moms say it is just easier to wear a longer skirt when they are going to be with little children all day, and I tend to agree with that. I wear my shorter skirts more when I’m going out places, or in the winter months with leggings under them.

 In short, it is very difficult, if not downright impossible in some areas, to set down hard and fast rules when it comes to modesty. Because the scriptures are largely silent on many of the above issues, we should not take it upon ourselves to act as God’s mouthpiece when it comes to standards of modesty. Make no mistake, we must attempt to defend and proclaim all that the scriptures teach us concerning modesty, but we must also be oh so careful when we begin to advocate certain non scriptural standards as if they were the word of God. We would do well to remember that not only is it dangerous to teach people to do less than God’s law requires, it can be just as dangerous to teach them to do more.

Don’t forget about the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle! You only have a few days to grab a bundle!

 

Your Chance At Health – The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle

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

I don’t know about you, but I’m already hearing reports of strange viruses, cautions to keep our children’s immune system as strong as possible during the winter months, and that it is going to be a difficult winter. I don’t want to be at the doctor’s office all winter long with 5 sick children! Rather, I want to know how to strengthen their bodies to fight these illnesses, and when sickness does come, how to treat them as naturally as possible through essential oils, herbs, and other natural ways.

I don’t think I’m alone in this. 

We all want to make better health and lifestyle decisions for ourselves and those we love. We want to lose some weight, have more energy, use greener products, create nutritious meals for our families, get fit, and feel confident that we’re doing all we can to prevent serious diseases.

Pregnancy Update: Week 12!

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

I’m excited to have hit 12 weeks! I always breath a sigh of relief at 12 weeks and feel like I accomplished something really important. :)  I’m feeling a little bit better, every day is still different and I need a lot of rest, but I see progress!

I have been able to be more involved with homeschooling, and doing lots of one on one work with the children this week. That is enough to exhaust a mama that isn’t pregnant! :) Normally I crash in the afternoon, shut the books and go take a nice long nap while the boys finish up their school.

Yesterday some friends planned a trip to a new park that opened up near us. It was so much fun! I was able to sit and visit with a few friends while the children all played. There is a huge climbing area there, and while it isn’t the best place to bring a toddler, all my older children had a blast.

Fun at a new park near us! You can see some of the climbing areas behind Carrianna in this picture. There was even a zip line, and I was feeling adventurous enough to go on one mild zip line ride. Some of the children went crazy fast, but my pregnant tummy couldn’t handle that. My sister took a video of me riding the zip line. Yes, I wore jeans with a tunic shirt to the park in case I had to rescue a child from the climbing area. :)

I came home and took a long nap and crashed for the rest of the night, but it was worth it. :)

I’m in that awkward in-between stage of outgrowing my regular clothes, but not quite in maternity clothes. The jeans I had on were maternity jeans, and the full panel was so comfortable. I’m not liking elastic skirts right now, but they stretch for my tummy!  I’m reaching for my maxi skirts a lot more these days.

If you are expecting a baby, how you are doing?
