Natural Lifestyle Tips From Boholistic Mom:

  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • 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 »

    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 »
  • 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 »

    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 »

    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 »
  • 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.

    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 »

    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 »

  • 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 »

    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 »

    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 »

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.
