Here is one email comment from an earlier Feminine Dressing Post: “I recently started thinking about what I wear and what the Lord wants me to wear. The problem is, I’m overweight (something I have to work on, I know). But this post showed me that covering up doesn’t mean frumpy! Could you do a post just for those of us who are not like those teeny tiny models? Thank you so much!”
My response is yes, though it is a while in coming, and I hope it encourages everyone who feels there is nothing cute to wear somehow due to clothing size.
Making your own vanilla sugar could not be easier. You can substitute vanilla sugar for granulated sugar in any recipe. It is also wonderful added to coffee or sprinkled on baked goods. This makes a great hostess gift, party favor and is a terrific addition to any gift basket.
If you still have some Christmas gifts left to purchase, please check out the Nifty Christmas Gift Ideas I compiled just so you don’t have to drop while you shop! These are businesses I feel good about supporting. Many (but not all) of the ones I list are run by Christian families who work hard to provide a great product at a reasonable price.
Next, some features from last week’s link-up Just click on the photos to go to the blogs!
I had no idea what a huge response there would be to my post on feverfew herb for migraine headaches! As I shared about our discovery (based on research at the University of Maryland Medical Center) that this herb worked to relieve pain within 5 minutes for our daughter, there were over 2,700 likes and many, many shares on FB. There obviously is a real need for something that works.
I ask the question: Since feverfew herb has been popular in Great Britain and studies there showed that 70% of those in the study felt much better after taking an average of 2 – 3 fresh or dried feverfew leaves daily, and if that information was true, why weren’t more migraine sufferers using (or trying) it?
Are you feeling all alone in this journey called motherhood?
Are you new to motherhood and need practical advice as you begin this season of life?
Are you a weary mom wrestling with emotional, physical, or spiritual issues?

Here’s a Christmas playlist to get you in the Cyber Monday shopping mood!
If you, like me, would like to get your shopping done early and also support family owned small businesses, you are in the right place!
Since the economy took a nose dive in 2008, many small business owners have grown accustomed to the feeling that this is a terrible climate in which to run a successful business, but maybe we can help that a little if we are purposeful in how we shop!
There are quite a few wonderful little specialty shoppes and online sites that are home-based and family-run and many of them are run by Christian families who work hard to provide a great product at a reasonable price. I am sharing a few that I know of and feel good about supporting.
Many of these companies are running ongoing holiday sales to make shopping more affordable for you as well. Happy shopping!
Above: The proclamation written by George Washington, the first President of the United States, is displayed at Christie’s Galleries prior to being auctioned, on October 3, 2013 in New York City. According to Christie’s, this was the first proclamation made by a United States President, declaring the first Thanksgiving holiday. Signed by George Washington on November 3rd, 1789, the paper was expected to fetch between $8-12 million.
I know you are not a dummy; I just liked the title for this post :0

One of our young adult children has been having migraines for several years, so I have been searching for possible effective natural remedies for a while. It has also helped keeping a journal of possible food triggers. I suspected excitotoxins contained in food eaten away from home.
I found an early helpful lead in my research at the University of Maryland Medical Center website. Their website states, “Feverfew became popular in Great Britain in the 1980s as a treatment for migraines. A survey of 270 people with migraines in Great Britain found that more than 70% of them felt much better after taking an average of 2 – 3 fresh or dried feverfew leaves daily. Several human studies have used feverfew to prevent and treat migraines. Overall, these studies suggest that taking dried leaf capsules of feverfew every day may reduce the number of migraines in people who have chronic migraines.”
What – is this little known information really true? Why aren’t more doing this?
For 38 years, I have been a wife to my husband and a teacher of our children in the home. Now a new season has come, and with the blessing of my husband, I write this blog as an encouragement to myself and others. (Titus 2: 3-5) How important is this role of speaking into the lives of younger women! The habits of the home in one generation become the morals of society in the next. As William Ross Wallace said: “The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.”
