Christian Healthcare Ministries – An Alternative to Health Insurance

It's that time of year where many people are looking at their options for health insurance.  If your employer does not provide insurance or you feel the insurance offered does not work for you or you are just frustrated with your insurance plans then you are probably looking in the market place for a plan that meets your needs but doesn't break the bank.  Last year we were in the same boat.  My husband and I both work for the same small business.  After what we would pay for our premiums and deductibles we would be shelling out almost $18,000 in one year before insurance would pick up anything!  I … [Read more...]

Willing – online legal will

Disclosure: The service below was provided compliments of Willing My husband and I have been putting off making a will for years. Mostly because well, I just didn't want to think about it.  Having to decide who gets what and who will take care of our children after we were gone was upsetting.  But, with being mid-thirties, owning our own home and having four children it was something that needed to be done sooner rather than later.  For those without a will the state in which you reside (for us Pennsylvania) will determine who gets what.  I am sure many of Americans, like us, are going without wills … [Read more...]

Planetbox Rover Bento Lunchbox

Disclosure: The products pictured below were provided compliments of Planetbox. I have always been a nature loving, animal nurturing person ever since I was a little girl.  If I see trash outside I will pick it up and dispose of it.  At times I have even went as far as picking recyclables out of the trash container and putting them in the recycle container.   We have to care for this Earth, as we only have one.  There are no do-overs.  When packing my kids lunches for school it always bothered me all the plastic bags I would use for everything.  One bag for the sandwich, another for the fruit, another … [Read more...]

Yellowberry – The Perfect First Bra

Disclosure: The products below were provided compliments of Yellowberry. For me, there was a sad feeling that came over me when I realized my nine year old needed her first bra.  My baby was blossoming into a young lady and I wasn't ready for it.  I ignored it for awhile, she wore tanks with built in bras under her shirts and after a couple weeks we went bra shopping. I wasn't just searching for a bra, I was searching for the perfect first bra. After about an hour and a half of looking at different stores and trying to convince myself that what I saw on the racks was ok and what girls were wearing … [Read more...]

Crisp – Kitchen Tools For Healthy Eating

Disclosure: The products below were provided compliments of Crisp. I think we all want to be healthier, eat healthier, drink more water and exercise.  Lets face it, having a healthier lifestyle can be a challenge when you aren't prepped and prepared for it.  Otherwise you find yourself in the same grind of quick processed meals or fast food drive-thru.  Spending lots of time in the kitchen is few and far between for my family and is typically only done on weekends, if we have a spare one.  If I want healthy meals during the week some of my prep work is done Sundays. Luckily, there is a company called … [Read more...]

Magic Weighted Blanket

Disclosure: The blanked pictured below was provided compliments of Magic Weighted Blanket. As a parent of a child that suffers from anxiety you will try just about anything to help them.  For us it has been about a 5 year struggle, starting around the time our son was 6 years old.  Our struggle is social situations and mostly school.  We can go for weeks with no incident and all of a sudden he will be suffering again.   When his anxiety is in full swing it can lead to some aggression (only at home) from him not knowing how to communicate his feelings properly.  He bottles up his anxiety when away and … [Read more...]
