Sleep with #DoTerra & @doTwithTiffany

11145557_880412998660973_4180870266153499348_n

A few weeks ago we did a giveaway featuring some DoTerra essential oils from our rep Tiffany. Today I want to get serious and talk about the benefit of the oil, PastTense, that we featured in the giveaway.

First some back ground. Sleep in our house is well- a very rocky thing. My daughter is a night owl, and it takes her forever to unwind. And then she ends up tired and cranky on school mornings because she isn’t getting her sleep. My son is another story. He has some anxiety issues. Nothing major, just if he has to much change at once he goes in anxiety modes and has mood swings and nightmares.

Qalo Rings #2015HolidayGiftGuide #Giveaway

Capture

This year I have been struggling with shopping for my husband. Why is it guys are the hardest to shop for? They never really say what they want, or what they do want is just more hunting gear that they don’t really need. I know, I know guys, you can never have to much hunting gears, guns, ammo, tactical gear or what ever.

I do have a great gift idea though. How many of your hubby’s do not wear the wedding rings? I mean lets face it. They do stuff where if that ring where to get caught it could mean a missing finger or worse. But now they have no excuse! Have you heard of Qalo? Continue reading

One of the important things to our family is living a natural and healthy style. I have slowly started getting into using essential oils and am still learning of all the wonderful benefits. One thing I use all the time is Lavender Oil. This is really a great multi use oil. It helps with hypertension,  headaches, it calms my son when he is having anxiety issues. But it can also help with this like burns, instect bites and more.

I am starting to learn about other oils though. Like Past Tense from DoTerra. It comes in an easy to apply roller to help with Tension Headaches. This may be what I need this holiday season. Being an LEOW the holidays are always stressful trying to figure out when to see family and arranging things like that. Continue reading

The Girl from The Train #bookreview #FCBlogger

Capture

 

When one is sick for a month what does one do? They read! And one of the latest books I read was a really good historical fiction book called The Girl from the Train by Irma Joubert.  This book takes you back in time and shows you a different side of things.

About the Author:

Irma Joubert lives and works in South Africa. After teaching for 35 years she decided to pick up writing and writes in her native Afrikaans. Since retiring she has written 8 novels and is often on the best seller list for South Africa and the Netherlands. The Girl from the Train is Irma’s first book to be translated into English.

About the Book:

This book starts out towards the end of World War 2 in Poland. Jakob is a part of the Polish Resistance and is trying to stop the German and Russians and tries to blow up a supply train. The only problem is, a train bound for a concentration camp gets to the bomb first. Leaving a young girl the only survivor. Over the time the two grow close together. But things are changing and they must separate. He sends her to South Africa where her past, including her Jewish roots, must stay hidden.

My thoughts:

This book had me hooked! It focused on the issues over in Europe even after the war and it addressed the adoption of many orphaned children. Through out the book she would give you enough of a line at each chapter to make you want to read on. I could not put this book down and it honestly did not take me long to read. Then again when you are sick you have a lot of time to read! I love historical fiction books and this one was just as good as all the others I have read. You can’t help but to fall in love with the whit that Gretl has, and you can just sense the charm and passion Jakob has running through him. It is so easy to fall into the story as if you are there with them. I must admit the ending was quite the surprise to me so you will have to pick up the book and find out why!

You can find this book online at the Family Christian Store. I highly recommend getting it today! It would make a great gift for a book lover this Christmas!
