A Home with Joy and Gladness





The home-life should also be made bright and full of sunshine. The courtesy of the true home is not stiff and formal but sincere, simple and natural. Children need an atmosphere of gladness.

 Law should not make its restraints hang like chains upon them. Sternness and coldness should have no place in home-life or in family government.

No child can ever grow up into its richest and best development in a home which is gloomy and unhappy. No more do plants need sunshine and air than children need joy and gladness. Unhappiness stunts them so that their sweetest graces never come out.

Are You a Sick Momma?



Are you a sick momma?

You’ve replaced your household cleaners with non-toxic products. You use alternative health remedies. You eat whole foods, avoid refined sugars, and exercise regularly.

And yet, you still feel like something’s missing when it comes to your health…but what on earth could it be?

Is it possible that one of the most important organs, your digestive system (your gut), is behind your health problems? Many friends have shared that they are dealing with this very issue.



Poor gut health isn’t fun, especially if you’re fighting leaky gut syndrome, allergies, or fuzzy brain – all symptoms of a gut that isn’t doing what it’s designed to do.

But taking the time to research it all can be daunting. Who has time to scour the internet for hours?

That is why I wanted to share The Gut Health Super Bundle with you!





The Gut Health Super Bundle includes 16 ebooks, 5 eCourses, 3 videos, and 1 massive summit full of expert videos.




These helpful resources cover everything you need to heal your gut… tummy-soothing recipes, meal plans, quick-start guides, in-depth education, and so much more.

For less than the cost of some high-quality probiotics, you’ll get a complete library to help you:





  • End your digestive complaints (you know what they are)
  • Identify your own trigger foods and how to eat for digestibility
  • Discover how to make gut-healing fermented foods at home – and cheaply!
  • Choose the best probiotics and other supplements
  • Simplify your meal planning routine with gut-healing recipes and meal plans
  • and finally get your health back.



  • Plus, it comes with $40 worth of bonus offers for tummy-friendly, real food products.




    You sort of need to see it to believe it, but the package includes 25 digital products and it’s worth over $695!

    Besides being so incredibly helpful, one of the things I like best about the bundle is the price. By offering it for a short time only, they’re able to give you access to over $695 worth of amazing products for a whopping 93% off--just $29.97!



    Here’s how it works:
    1. Visit their website, take a quick look at all the goodness that comes in this package, then click the “Get my copy now!” button to go through their simple and secure 3-step checkout process.
    2. You’ll receive an email with a login to their online access portal, where you’ll begin downloading your eBooks, signing up for your eCourses, and redeeming your free bonus offers.
    3. Use their Getting Started Guide to pick the topic you want to tackle first and start the healing journey!
    The most important detail, though, is that this bundle is available for just six days! After Monday night, March 27th, the sale ends and you’d have to buy all of these products individually.

    I’d hate for you to miss out, so click HERE to learn more or buy the bundle.

    It’s even backed by a 100% happiness guarantee, so you can make sure it’s right for you.

    No one should put up with poor digestive health because it costs too much or they can’t get the help they need.

    Embracing a healthy lifestyle is an important first step. But to really experience holistic health, you need to get your digestive system back on track.




    Learn more or get your bundle HERE. 







    (Psst… the bundle goes away at 11:59pm Eastern on Monday, March 27th, so don’t wait!)




    I know for some of you this is just what you were looking for--


    I hope it blesses you!

    It has been great fun connecting with some amazing and encouraging women all over the world in our new Wise Woman Builds Titus 2 Facebook Group (if you haven't joined yet, you are definitely welcomed to and we would love to have you)!

    Recently a sweet gal from the group shared a wonderful "chore" list that will encourage you to keep a biblical focus through the week that she said she keeps next to her "real" chore list. I thought it might inspire you especially with it being the first day of Spring and we all know that spring cleaning will soon be on the way in most of our homes!


    Here it is:



    WEEKLY CHORES FOR LIFE


    MONDAY - WASH DAY

    Lord, help me wash away all my selfishness and vanity, so I may serve you for the week ahead.


    TUESDAY - IRONING DAY

    Dear Lord, help me wash out the wrinkles of prejudice I have collected through the years so I might see beauty in others.


    WEDNESDAY - MENDING DAY

    O God, help me mend my ways so I will not set a bad example for others.



    THURSDAY - CLEANING DAY

    Lord Jesus, help me to dust out the many faults I have been hiding in the secret corners of my heart.


    FRIDAY - SHOPPING DAY

    O God, give me the grace to shop wisely so I may bless my family with contentment and happiness and all others in need of love.


    SATURDAY - COOKING DAY

    Help me, my Savior, to brew a big kettle of brotherly love and serve it with clean, sweet bread of human kindness.


    SUNDAY - THE LORD'S DAY

    O God, I have prepared my house for you. Please come into my heart so I may spend the day and the rest of my life in your presence.



    ~Author Unknown



    Let it be our prayer to keep Christ first and center in our homemaking and all the other important things that we do on a daily basis!


    If you would like to print this out, just click on the printable below, right click and open a new tab, zoom in, and then print. Super easy! 





    I hope it is a blessing to you!

    Easy Delicious Corned Beef & Cabbage




    If you are looking to make some easy delicious Corned Beef & Cabbage you have come to the right place!

    Every year around this time (St. Patrick's Day) we like to whip some of this up and it is a family favorite!

    And honestly it is so easy, how could I not make it?

    So if you have never made it before, don't be intimidated--it is super simple and your family will love you for it.

    Here it is:


    CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE RECIPE

    2 CORNED BEEF ROASTS
    1 HEAD SMALL CABBAGE
    1-2 SMALL SLICED ONIONS

    Add all the above ingredients in a slow cooker for about 5-7 hours on high along with the seasoning packet it comes with and it comes out simply amazing and the meat literally falls apart.

    Seriously, people, that's it!

    You can also add potatoes, carrots and a box of beef broth for more taste! Sometimes we eat it with a side of brown rice.

    When we have this for St. Patrick's Day we might also have it along with some Irish soda bread and butter and make sure to have a green drink available (yes, I know it's not healthy, but it's only once a year). They also get a green dessert like jello, key lime pie. or green cupcakes.

    The kiddos like to wear green too and earlier in the day I will print out some printables, word searches, etc. and things for them to do.

    If you have leftovers (I can't remember the last time we have) you could make a corned beef hash like the one pictured below for the next day.



    This looks so good I think I can actually smell it through my computer! I also think this Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup is worth a try!

    Every year we make the corned beef in TWO crockpots because our family is large, but a few days ago my son was washing the liner for one and it slipped out of his hands and broke in the sink. So this year I think I am going to attempt to make it in my Elite Pressure Cooker that I got for Christmas. It is a pressure cooker AND a slow cooker in one. I have been afraid to use it,  but I will try to be brave and give it whirl and let you know how it goes!



    How do you like to cook your corned beef?

    And we also warmly invite you to join our NEW Wise Woman Builds {Titus 2} Facebook Group and be a part of the fun and vibrant community there! You can find it HERE or just click one of the banners below!

They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.


    ~Titus 2: 3-5
