  • 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 »
  • Childbirth Doula – Montgomery, Alabama

    Childbirth Doula – Montgomery, Alabama

    In June 2016, I had the opportunity to train with Madriella Doula Network to become a certified childbirth doula.  Through this training and my own birth experience, I have been able to support women in the Montgomery and Prattville area with their non-medical childbirth needs.  This post will detail my childbirth doula services allowing you a window into what I offer and how to hire me for your birth!   What is a Childbirth Doula? …Read More »

    Squatty Potty Review by Boholistic Mom

    Alright, let’s face it ladies. We all do it. While many of us prefer to do our business at home or at least do it in private, we all have to take care of it. Some of us try to hurry our business along by eating a little more fiber or trying a magnesium supplement, but it all comes out in the end. If you haven’t figured out the topic of this post . . . …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 »

    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.

  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • Should You Go See Vaxxed? Click to see.

    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 »
  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • 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 »

    Making a baby registry is hard, but making a natural baby registry is harder!  Even though our skin is the largest organ of our sweet little baby’s body, companies have filled so many baby products with harmful chemicals and even hormone disruptors.  Below is a list of natural baby products that are great to add to your natural baby registry that will keep your sweetie smiling and healthy!

  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • 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 »

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.
