    Baking Soda is Abrasive – True or False

    After answering this question in a comment over on my soap alternatives post –> here, I realized that the topic of baking soda abrasivity deserved a post of its own.  I have heard so many times that baking soda is abrasive and will cause damage to our tooth enamel.  However, have we ever seen proof of this tooth enamel damage?  Where are they getting this information about baking soda?  The truth about baking soda will …Read More »

    Why are my pads a medical device according to the FDA?

    Our Common Thread Every woman over the age of 14 has something in common.  We all have monthly cycles.  Most of us wouldn’t consider it glamorous, but most of us also wouldn’t describe it as a medical problem.  Our bodies are not malfunctioning when they begin their cycle each month with a cleansing.  We aren’t broken and medically in need of a fix.  Or are we?

    Ethical Thanksgiving Shopping 2015

    Do you believe in Thanksgiving shopping? While you are being thankful at the table with family and friends are you dreaming of shopping? I, for one, do not.

  • Healthy Weight:  What is it and how do I maintain it

    Healthy Weight: What is it and how do I maintain it

    We live in a society where mixed images of people fill our mind.  We see stick figures parading around in fashionable clothes on a runway as the ideal mobile hanger for fashion.  We see larger voluptuous women who are demanding to be recognized as beautiful and embraced for their size.  We have people who are pear shaped, apple shaped, larger shouldered people, and people with medical problems.  In the light of all of these shapes …Read More »

    Should You Go See Vaxxed? Click to see.

    Excerpt from a review about VAXXED that I wrote for Blissful Moments Doula blog today: “First of all, why would we cover a movie review of VAXXED: From Cover Up to Catastrophe on a doula blog?  Because every single mother has to make the decision about vaccinations for their child: whether they want them all, whether they want to space them out, whether they want the particular ingredients, and, most importantly, mothers need to know their …Read More »
  • Brazil and Microcephaly – The Real Facts

    Brazil and Microcephaly – The Real Facts

    I spent hours this morning researching microcephaly, Brazil, and the Zika Virus.  What I found is vital information.  I honestly believe that this information needs to make it to the media and out to the world.  Each party is trying to blame a different person and I cannot believe how little research was done about the chemical Pyriproxyfen before it was used in Brazil’s water supply.  There is no excuse.  Read on. The Real Facts about Brazil …Read More »
  • Sorry Candace Cameron Bure

    Sorry Candace Cameron Bure

    I Am Sorry Candace Cameron Bure Why do I say “I Am Sorry Candace Cameron?”  Because Christians eat their own alive.  When I say “Christians,” I am speaking to those who say they are Christians, but who are judging others and being hypocritical with their actions. Did God say to his followers, “Judge others, because you are so absolutely perfect?”  Or did God say, “Judge not, that you be not judged.  For with the judgment you pronounce …Read More »

For Military

As a military mom (aka military member who is a mom or a military spouse who is a mom), you are already out of the box . . . because you have to be. You have to adjust and change constantly. Your life is unconventional. It’s not like everyone else’s life. Your family moves every year or two and you as the mom hold it together at home. Why is the military home so strong and tight? Because you make it that way.
