In the spring of 2001 I made a decision to lose the extra pounds I had gained over the years.  I did a lot of research on diets and plans, and finally settled on Weight Watchers, because I knew it was something I could do for the long haul and stick it out.

Eco Natural Soap Giveaway

Taking care of your skin undoubtedly has its cosmetic benefits, but more significantly, it also plays a large role in overall health. When there is dry skin, discoloration, wounds, rashes, bruises or other injuries, people are immediately aware something is wrong on the outside and maybe even on the inside. Keeping skin healthy allows it to offer protection from environmental harms and infections as well as produce important vitamins.

Creative Gift Basket Ideas For Baby Showers

Looking for a creative baby shower gift idea? How about a gift basket? They make memorable gifts and show you put a lot of thought into your gift.

Looking for a more unique gift than the standard baby clothes (which every new baby always ends up with too much of), bibs, or receiving blankets? Then try your hand at creating a gift basket. They are always lots of fun for both the giver and the receiver. It shows you put a lot of thought and love into your present. And for the new parents, it's like they're getting many gifts instead of just one big gift.

FIRST Wild Card Tour: Havah

Experience the epic dawn of mankind through the eyes and heart of Eve---the woman first known as Havah. Made by God in a manner like no other, she lived in utter paradise until one fateful decision changed everything. Now all humanity suffers for her mistake. Discover what she felt when all innocence crumbled.

I generally enjoy books that are written as a fictional account using Biblical truths.  I often wonder what the women of faith that I read about within the pages of the Bible felt when faced with sorrow, joy or hardship.  It's difficult to meld fiction with truth however, and a lot of authors fall short of the mark.

Great T-shirts for All Kinds of Guys & Gals (Giveaway)

Buying clothing for yourself, your best friend or your daughters is usually an easy task, you just know what they like, pick it up and are done.  But then there are the men in your life...

I don't know about you, but for me personally, I find it difficult to shop for the guys.  The ones in my life (Husband, Brothers, Dad), all have different tastes and personalities, and even though I think I know what they like, especially when it comes to clothing, I find it tough to find the 'right' piece of clothing.

Switched-On Schoolhouse Series: Tiny Tutor

I write the Switched-On Schoolhouse Series twice a month to share our family's experience using this software based curriculum in our home.

One of the things we have really come to enjoy in regards to the Switched-On Schoolhouse software is the Tiny Tutor, which are the embedded video clips that are peppered throughout the lessons.  These tiny video boxes (hence their name "Tiny Tutor"), further explain or expound upon the information that the student is learning, where text just isn't quite enough.

3) Purging unused, unwanted and unnecessary stuff in my home.
