Healthy Living Just Got Easier!

The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle: Healthy Living Just Got Easier!

Living a natural, healthy lifestyle is important to me, not only for the benefit of my family’s health and well being, but because I’m firmly convinced that it honors and glorifies God and His creation.

Home With Purpose exists as a way for me to encourage and equip others to do the same. Well, the Ultimate Bundles team has done it again. They’ve put together a comprehensive package of resources to do just that for all of us on this journey.

I’m really, truly, excited to be a part of bringing The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle to you. It embodies what I’m striving for at Home With Purpose: encouraging and equipping others to live in a way that honors and glorifies God in every aspect of home and family life.

I’ve already bought mine – the Vintage Remedies eCourse alone is more than worth it! I’m super excited to dig into it, not to mention the rest!

This is truly an awesome collection of resources, and TODAY is the last day it’s available!

Under Drake’s Flag: A G.A. Henty Audio Adventure

Under Drake's Flag: A G.A. Henty Audio Adventure

I know I’ve said it multiple times, but I’m saying it again: our family really enjoys high quality audio dramas.

They’re fantastic in the car, at bedtime, and in various other situations. Over the years, we’ve amassed quite a collection, and everyone from the high schooler to the kindergartner has their favorites that they don’t mind listening to over and over. Still, we’re always up for something new too.

So, I was excited when we received a copy of Under Drake’s Flag: The Extraordinary Adventures of G.A. Henty from Heirloom Audio Productions to review. We’ve long been fans of Henty’s novels, and this audio drama is based on one of them. Henty, who wrote in the late 19th century and was nicknamed the “Prince of Storytellers”, was known for his exciting, historically accurate adventure stories with strong Christian themes.
