Learn to Embrace the Blessing of Self-care

Learn to Embrace the Blessing of Self-care

  Learn to Embrace the Blessing of Self-care By Nancy Virden Staring at the papers in my hand, a potent weariness seemed to reach through my chest, grasp my heart, and threaten to steal my breath.  Only a desperate and silent cry to God connected me to the reality of hope as tears splashed my face and desk. The stress of helping other people by volunteering up to 70 hours per week, homeschooling my children, and coping with a loveless marriage had collaborated with physical and mental exhaustion to break my spirit.  Other than basic hygiene, there was zero self-care […]

How Busy Moms Can Have a Healthy Home

How Busy Moms Can Have a Healthy Home

Busy Moms Can Have a Healthy Home   Being a busy mama is rough.  We work all day and all night for our families, jobs, and ourselves.  Most days, it’s hard enough to get to bedtime without losing it, but somehow we make it there.  Day after day, we provide nourishment, love, and affection to our families.  We teach lessons, kiss boo-boos, and some of us have a full career outside the home.  It’s no wonder that so many things that we want to remain our priorities fall to the wayside because we can’t seem to make enough time in […]

After my most recent bug which resulted in breathing issues and a fun trip to the doctor complete with a nebulizer breathing treatment, I realized just how much my own health matters. Yes, I focus all my energy […]

The Best Natural Cough Suppressant Remedy to Stop your Cough Instantly

How to Care for Children’s Teeth
