Natural Lifestyle Tips From Boholistic Mom:

  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • 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 . . . 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 »
  • 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 »
  • Natural Baby Registry Products

    Natural Baby Registry Products

    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!

  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • Squatty Potty Review by Boholistic Mom

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

    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 »

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.
