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 »
  • Kombucha 101 – Fermented Sweet Tea

    Kombucha 101 – Fermented Sweet Tea

    If you have found my Kombucha 101 page, you may have heard me talking about the concept of making fermented sweet tea with a SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast).  Kombucha tends to come up in many of my conversations with my friends, because I am excited about it!  Most people do not ferment their beverages anymore.  However, for centuries, traditional cultures have fermented their drinks and their food in order to increase the …Read More »
  • Digital Doula – Finding Pregnancy Support Online

    Digital Doula – Finding Pregnancy Support Online

    As a woman who serves other women as a doula for fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, and post partum support, I have been able to support women in my local community with their tangible needs.  However, many women live far away from where my local businesses exists and still would like doula pregnancy support.  In order to meet these needs, I offer digital doula services. What is a Digital Doula? A digital doula is available by e-mail …Read More »
  • What Does the Bible Say about Modesty?

    What Does the Bible Say about Modesty?

    This post is actually a troubleshooting post for my post titled “What Does the Bible Say about Boobs? over at Blissful Moments Doula.  You can find that post >here<.  I know many ladies will have so many questions about the assertions that I made, but many of those have to do with modesty rather than the Biblical passages on breasts.  So I decided I would continue the discussion here on my blog. What Does the Bible …Read More »
  • 3rd Grade Homeschool Curriculum for 2017

    3rd Grade Homeschool Curriculum for 2017

    Throughout our time homeschooling, I have met many kinds of homeschooling families.  Some mothers in those families hate choosing curriculum avoiding the process as if it were their most fearful nightmare and some mothers swim in curriculum as if they were surfing the waves in Hawaii.  I am neither of those mothers. While I do enjoy looking for my curriculum, I do not like looking through ALL of the millions of choices out there.  It can …Read More »
  • My Real Food Timeline – How It All Started

    My Real Food Timeline – How It All Started

    My Real Food Timeline I started this Boholistic Mom website in 2013 to reach out to my friends, family, and any of those who were interested in real food like I was.  Yet my real food timeline and journey started many years before that point.  So many people get bogged down and frustrated when they think about all the different changes they could made and maybe should make, but when you realize that life is a process it isn’t …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 »
  • Ethical Thanksgiving Shopping 2015

    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. I do not have visions of Thanksgiving sales in my head as I sit down to eat turkey, pour on the gravy, and consume homemade stuffing.  I just don’t.  I really don’t know many people who are planning to abandon their families, their tables, and their homes …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 »

  • Redeeming My Birth Story After Trauma

    Redeeming My Birth Story After Trauma

    In June of 2014, I shared my birth story with my Boholistic Mom readers.  My post called Modern Childbirth: My Story detailed my story of pregnancy and labor for my child.  Writing out my story was both healing for me and liberating.  I wasn’t hiding the pain, the fear, and the disappointment anymore. Now, two years later, I need to write a new story.  Did you know that you can actually rewrite your own birth …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 »
  • The Late Cycle | Boholistic Mom

    The Late Cycle | Boholistic Mom

    The Late Cycle It’s 30 days today and no visitor. Last month, it came at 29 days. There’s always a chance . . . No positive. Two months ago it came at 31 days. It’s 32 days now . . .

  • 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 »
  • Should You Reheat Your Coffee?

    Should You Reheat Your Coffee?

      In the years since my first induction into the coffee obsessed hall of fame, I’ve learned a lot about coffee.  It wasn’t hard to start learning considering I had so very much to learn after sipping my first Folgers . . . actually it was probably an off brand . . . that was loaded with Coffee Mate powdered creamer . . . actually, no, that was probably also an off brand . . . …Read More »
  • Perfect Birth VS Perfect Wedding

    Perfect Birth VS Perfect Wedding

    I just had an epiphany. Why do women believe that they need to spend time and money to plan their perfect wedding securing photographers, videographers, THE dress, favors, cakes, hors d’oeuvres, a wedding planner, the DJ or band, and the venue, but often have no plans to spend time or money to facilitate their perfect birth? Women plan their dream wedding, but forget to plan their dream birth.   Perfect Wedding vs Perfect Birth: Special Event Planning Location WEDDING …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 »

    Modern Childbirth: My Story

    7.19.2016 – Update to my story here – “Redeeming My Birth” Before getting pregnant, going through nine months eight months of carrying a child, having my water break, and ending up in the hospital, I really thought that childbirth was straight forward.  You got pregnant, you grew a basketball, and you popped that sucker right out after 9 months.  I knew there was a little pain behind it at the end, but women have been “birthin’ …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.
