Natural Lifestyle Tips From Boholistic Mom:

  • 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 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 »

  • 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 »
  • Homemade Sunscreen Recipe

    Homemade Sunscreen Recipe

    Homemade Sunscreen Recipe I made my first homemade sunscreen last year and loved it.  It was great to slather on a non-toxic mix of oils and know that I was keeping away the toxic mess that sunscreens have become.  Still, I wanted to provide my blog readers with more than just a little recipe that I whipped up.  I like to really research the options! Note: Remember, that no matter how much sunscreen (whether natural …Read More »
  • 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 »

Before even accepting a cooperative reviewing of a companies product, I view the ingredients of their product and I decide whether they are a company that I want to stand behind.

  • Fertility Options – What I Have Tried

    Fertility Options – What I Have Tried

    It is always strange to announce to the world, “I struggle with infertility!”  Yet if I don’t talk about it, I know many women are going to continue to feel alone and not have the information they need.  If you are dealing with infertility, you need me to talk about the fertility options that I have tried.  You need other women who are TTC (trying to conceive) to talk about what they are doing.  Why?  Because …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 »

  • 10 Marriage Tools for a Thriving Relationship

    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 »

  • Companies Who Do and Don’t Ship FPO/APO/DPO

    Companies Who Do and Don’t Ship FPO/APO/DPO

    In 2012, my address was an FPO address.  I am a Boholistic Mom, but my husband wears a uniform.  He serves his country in the United States Navy.  I am a military spouse and I am proud to serve my husband as he serves the United States of America. Many military members and military families become stationed overseas while they are a part of the military community.  Before we leave our home country to move overseas, we know …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 »

    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 . . .

  • Baking Soda is Abrasive – True or False

    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 »
  • How to Discipline Your Child

    How to Discipline Your Child

    Last week, I had the opportunity to go to a Mommy’s Drop-In with my church and hear a seasoned mother speak on discipline.  Can I just tell you that before this point I had never been taught specifically how to discipline my child by a mother who has children who are grown up and have chosen to continue their walk with the Lord? I had been given tips.  Oh, so many tips.  By new mothers, …Read More »
  • Natural Beauty Options: What Do I Use?

    Natural Beauty Options: What Do I Use?

      Natural Beauty Routine: What Do I Use? Let’s face it.  Being holistic and natural about external beauty is difficult.  So many products say that they are “organic” and “natural,” but for products that are not being consumed many of these claims are false.  False is probably too soft of a word.  Really . . . these products straight up lie.  Some of them have nothing natural about them, but perhaps they contain a drop …Read More »

    Do a Traditional Homemaker’s Workout without a Gym

Instead of doing things the easy way, for physical fitness, we can intentionally spend more time and effort on household tasks . . .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.
