The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle: Connecting, Encouraging, & Equipping You For a Natural Lifestyle

Back for Black Friday weekend!  We’re having an encore sale for only 4 days, from 8 a.m. (EST) on Friday, November 29 to 11:59pm (EST) on Monday, December 2. After this time, this bundle will never be available for purchase again. Additionally, 25% of this flash sale’s proceeds go to a few of our favorite non-profit organizations… Shelter Box (specifically for Philippines relief aid), Compassion InternationalHope for Women, and Love146! If you missed it the first time around, here’s your chance to get this resource collection and support some very worthy causes too!
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. Some like-minded friends of mine in the blogging community have been hard at work for the last several months putting 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.

This one is different from any other bundle I’ve seen. It includes a collection of over 80 ebooks, membership 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 just sell you a bundle of products, but to create a community with interaction, encouragement, and support! I’ve already seen that in action these last few weeks as the authors and team members have worked together to get everything ready to launch. What a wonderful group of people! The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle 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. It’s been a real blessing to be part of it!

I’ll be sharing some of my favorites and a few sneak peeks here on the blog and in our Facebook community this week, so you may want to subscribe to updates and join us on Facebook too!

With that said, I’m thrilled to share the details with you! Read on for a list of exactly what’s included, and click the links for even more details!

The Busy Mom’s Guide: Taming the Laundry Monster {A Giveaway!}

The Busy Mom's Guide: Taming the Laundry Monster {A Giveaway!} www.homewithpurpose.net

 Staying on top of the laundry is a constant battle for me, even after over 17 years of running a household.

I’ve tried different methods and schedules over the years, and of course, the amount of laundry in the house has grown as our family has grown, but I’ve never reached the point where I really felt that I was completely on top of it. [Read more…]

The Zone Cleaning Concept for Kids’ Rooms

The Zone Cleaning Concept for Kids' Rooms from www.homewithpurpose.net

Recently, I shared my zone cleaning method for our house. We break it up into five zones, focusing on one each weekday.
