Here are my top 8 Black Friday picks: [Read more…]

Did you miss The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle the first time it came around?

We’ve heard from so many people who were disappointed they missed out the first time around, that we’re happy to announce the Encore Flash Sale for Black Friday weekend only!

I said it before and I’ll say it again:

This one is different from any other bundle I’ve seen. It includes a collection of over 80 ebooksmembership to a 12-week mentorship series with interactive online conference calls and private support groups with well-known bloggers, and multiple other bonusesMuch more than just a set of ebooks and/or products to purchase, it’s designed to encourage, equip, and connect you with a like-minded community!

That’s what I really love about this collection: it’s purpose isn’t just to sell you a bundle of products, but to create a community with interaction, encouragement, and support!

And if you have already purchased one for yourself, this would be the perfect time to buy one (or more!) to use for Christmas! You can gift the entire bundle to one person, or split it up as many ways as you’d like, making multiple gifts out of it!

Do you have a new mom on your list? Gift her Confessions of a Cloth Diaper Convert and several of the other Healthy Kids and Babies titles! Maybe you have a  gardener in the family. The Gardening Notebook would be a fantastic choice! Do you have a friend or family member who’s just getting started on their real food journey? Better Than a Box, Real Food on a Real Budget and Real Food for the Real Homemaker are excellent choices. The possible combinations and ways to mix and match different titles to create unique, individualized gifts is almost endless! Print them or put them on a CD-Rom with a personalized label and voila! A unique, personal, and useful gift!

Fitness Challenge Check-In and a Sneak Peek at a FREE Online Conference!

Fitness Challenge: Primary Back Stretch (www.homewithpurpose.net)

It’s time for my first fitness challenge check-in/update!

(I should have posted this check-in last week but things were so busy that I decided to postpone it a week!)

Last month, I committed to try to do the T-Tapp Primary Back Stretch twice a day, morning and evening. As I explained then:

I know that weak muscles and poor posture are a major contributor to my near-constant back and neck pain, and my flexibility (which has always been pretty good) has noticeably decreased over the last couple of years. I also know that my energy level increases and I feel so much better all around when I’m exercising.

But, I also know that this time of year is totally crazy, and I would be setting myself up for failure if I tried to start a full-blown exercise routine right now. So, I decided to start simple – something is better than nothing, right?

So, how did my first month go? [Read more…]

Titus 2 Moments: Things I Wish I’d Known As a New Mom

Titus 2 Moments: Things I Wish I'd Known as a New Mom

Believe it or not, I’ve been a mom for over fifteen years now!

I’ve got quite a few ages and stages under my belt – in fact, I’ve got everything from teenager to preschooler going on in my home right now!

Over the last few years, I’ve noticed a gradual shift in my perspective from that of “young mom in search of mentors” to “Titus 2 mom who actually feels I might have something valuable to offer younger moms”. Not to say that I’ve even come close to having “arrived” – I still need mentors and godly examples myself! But I have learned and grown significantly over the years and feel that I do have wisdom to share. [Read more…]
