Natural Lifestyle Tips From Boholistic Mom:

  • Decreasing Inches: 5 Focus Points

    Decreasing Inches: 5 Focus Points

    This June my family moved 3+ states North East.  In addition, my youngest son who was our foster son for 21 months went home to be with his family in late May.  There has been so much change and I chose not to pay close attention to our diet during this time.  I did not add on an extra 20 pounds, but my pants are snug and uncomfortable.  In the Spring, I focused on loving my …Read More »
  • The Unsettled Mom

    The Unsettled Mom

    Settling.  What an interesting word, right?  Settling down, to settle, unsettling, or settling up.  As American’s we are even familiar with the term “settler”; the American pioneers who settled in the land west of the original colonies.  The original German work setle was literally a place to sit, a seat.  Yet with all these perfectly adequate definitions of the word settle, we have a definite malaise when we think of someone settling for something.  Such …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? Medical Problem? According to the FDA of the United …Read More »

  • 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 »

  • Infinity Glass Jar Review – Do they work?

    Infinity Glass Jar Review – Do they work?

    I recently had the privilege of reviewing a set of ultraviolet Infinity glass jars.  While I had not heard of this particular brand of ultraviolet glass jars before, I had heard about the technology of the deep purple glass.  Basically, they propose that the tint of the glass keeps out harmful light and lets in beneficial light in order to keep the contents fresh.  My question is . . . do they really work? History …Read More »

    Do a Traditional Homemaker’s Workout without a Gym

    Fitness at home isn't really revolutionary; it's actually quite traditional. Traditionally, household tasks would have required much more strength, endurance, and time. Instead of doing things the easy way, for physical fitness, we can intentionally spend more time and effort on household tasks . . .Read More »
  • Soap Alternatives that keep you clean

    Soap Alternatives that keep you clean

      In this day and age, we have come to believe that a magical clean is only achieved with soap.  Soap being whatever the store sells as soap.  It may not even be soap, but if the store calls it soap then it must clean and we are safe.  Safe from the nasty obnoxious germs we all fear.  These evil creature must be fought with foaming cleaners (sodium lauryl sulfate), antibacterial cleansers, and if that …Read More »

    Join Young Living Essential Rewards Program

    Essential Rewards: Why Join? When you sign up with Young Living as a Wholesale Member, you have the option of joining YL’s Essential Rewards Program.  When I first joined, this confused me so much!  As I filled out the information on the screen, Young Living had these Essential Rewards Kits that were upwards of $100.  I had so many questions! “Do I need to buy these to be a part of the Essential Rewards program?” “Why …Read More »
  • Fertility Health Check – How healthy are you?

    Fertility Health Check – How healthy are you?

    As I have studied and explored the world of fertility health, one thing I have realized is that many women have no idea what factors in their lives could impact their fertility.  Many times when we realize that we are having fertility difficulties, we run to the doctor to be officially diagnosed as “infertile.”  What if before the two year point, women had the opportunity to take an objective look at their fertility health and begin to intentionally make …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 »

    10 Marriage Tools for a Thriving Relationship

    Let me be clear ladies.  Our marriages are under attack by the enemy of our souls.  The good news?  God is bigger, stronger, and has every intention of helping us through any hurdle that the enemy presents.  However, we need God and we need tools.  Why do we need tools?  Because God has given us a base of Biblical wisdom and teachers who have walked this path before us.  We do not need to come …Read More »

    Should You Reheat Your Coffee?

    Revolutionary Resolutions – New Years Goals

    While much of the time, I have tried to keep Boholistic Mom professional than the average blog and present it more like a website, as I write and share I’m learning how I can’t share with others about real food, bohemian style, natural lifestyle, and holistic faith without getting personal.  I can’t really let you know how special this transformation has been in my life without opening up some doors and using a few “me” and …Read More »

  • No Veggies for Me: Guide to Children and Vegetables

    No Veggies for Me: Guide to Children and Vegetables

    As a health coach for families and mothers, I hear one common problem that appears in most families and at most dinner tables.  Aversion to vegetables. “No Mommy!!!  I won’t eat my ________!!!”  Fill-in-the-blank with your choice of vegetable. It’s always the vegetables, rarely the mashed potatoes, the macaroni and cheese, or the cookie.  If it is colorful and vibrant in flavor naturally, an alarm goes of in their little brains with a warning, “WARNING:  …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.
