Natural Lifestyle Tips From Boholistic Mom:

    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 »
  • 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 »
  • Do a Traditional Homemaker’s Workout without a Gym

    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 »
  • 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 »

    6 Reasons You Need to Quit Coffee For Good – Boholistic Mom

    Why am I suggesting that you quit coffee? If you know me personally, you know that I adore coffee.  I used to imbibe a cup (or two) of coffee each morning with cream and sugar.  Then I lived in Italy for three years and consumed copious amounts of cappuccino, espresso, and macchiato.  When we returned to the States, I tried my first Whole 30 . . . which worked great because it allowed you to have …Read More »

    Cloth Diapers 101: Prefolds

    Cloth Diapers 101: Prefolds Though the world of cloth diapers can seem overwhelming, I’ll try to make my explanation as simple as possible.  Tons of information exists about diapering with prefold cloth diapers, but I am going to cover the basics that will help you to get started.  Still, I will try not to miss anything helpful!  Please post a comment asking questions if I missed something.

  • 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 »

    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 . . . I try another test. No positive. Another day. Another day. Another day. It’s 35 days today and no visitor. I’m bloated. I’m so tired. I’m too tender. Maybe today? No positive. Surely, I must …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 »
  • 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 »
  • Revolutionary Resolutions – New Years Goals

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

    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 »
  • 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 »
  • The Faint Line on the Pregnancy Test

    The Faint Line on the Pregnancy Test

    Many times I have brushed this experience off as wishful thinking.  Only who would ever wish the pain that I have felt over the years remembering that day? Just a Faint Line I lived in Gulfport, MS at the time.  I had a three year old beautiful boy.  I had an internship at a wonderful church.  I had a husband who went to work and hurried to come home to me each day.  It was …Read More »
  • Fertility Journey – Begin Moving Forward Here

    Fertility Journey – Begin Moving Forward Here

    This may sound strange in the context of fertility, but I want to congratulate you for beginning your fertility journey.  No matter where you are in your awareness of your body and whether you have been labeled with infertility or more information on fertility, you are taking a monumental step toward reproductive health by declaring that you are in charge of your fertility.  My goal is for you to know how your body works, make informed …Read More »

    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 »

  • 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 »

    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 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 »

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.
