Christmas Week of Giveaways: Young Living Essential Oils!




It is winter time and I know that many of you are thinking about ways to keep your family healthy in a natural way. I have already had to use my Lavender several times with children who have stuffy noses and am praying for a winter with little to no illnesses this year.




Essentials oils are great because you can use them for all kinds of things--for natural health, cleaning your home, boosting immunity and more. If you try to Google it all you would find page after page of results of their benefits!

Since these oils are so helpful for you and your family and everyone else out there, today for our 4th day of Christmas Week of Giveaways,  we will be giving away a special gift package of oils to one of our lucky readers that include the following:






Orange Essential Oil has a rich, fruity scent that lifts the spirit while providing a calming influence on the body. Orange brings peace and happiness to the mind. It is rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene and aids in maintaining normal cellular regeneration.* Orange may also be used to enhance the flavor of food and water.




Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil  ~The warm, spicy aroma of cinnamon has been sought throughout the ages both as a valuable commodity and for its ability to improve wellness. Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ cinnamon bark is meticulously tested to ensure that no dilution from similar-smelling oils has occurred. Cinnamon is thought to promote healthy cardiovascular and immune function, and acts as an antiseptic. You can also use it to enhance your cooking, or dilute and massage into chakras to create a soothing, relaxing sensation.


Stress Away Roll On is a unique blend of vanilla, lime, copaiba, and other pure essential oils that relieves daily stress, encourages relaxation, and reduces nervous tension.

Pretty Jamberry Nails for the Holidays & Giveaway!

Around the holidays is the time where we all seem to get extra super busy. I know that for our large family things defiitely seem to be on fast forward and time for the small things seem to go by the wayside.

There is holiday decorating, crafts, fun, outings, family gatherings, and memories to be made. With all this hustle and bustle the last thing I tend to think about is how my nails look!

But I have heard about Jamberry Nails before and really like the idea of how you can easily have pretty nails without worrying about them chipping and repainting them. Since my lifestyle feels like it is always on the go, this sounds like a wonderful alternative for when I would like to have them done!




Jamberry Nails are heat activated, self-adhesive nail wraps. Some popular highlights are that they are made in the U.S.A, includes junior sizes, it is non-toxic, there is no chipping,  and they last 2 weeks on your hands with over 250 designs! This graphic below shares a bit more about them in case this is the first time you have heard about them:




And did you know that for the holidays they are bringing back 12 Sister's Style Exclusives from last year? Favorite styles that you thought were gone forever, are back for a limited time starting  Black Friday, November 28 at 12:01 a.m. through Cyber Monday, December 1 at 11:59 p.m. MDT.

Yes, they are, and not only that but the earnings that Christen,our Jamberry consultant, receives from your orders will help to pay for her two childen's operations (one who has down syndrome and one born at 24 weeks),  medical bills, and therapies as well. What a great cause to support!

Adorn Your Home with Scripture and Beauty--Fruitful Vine Creations & Giveaway!

www.fruitfulvinecreations.com


 "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.  You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. 

-Deuteronomy 6:5-9


As a homemaker I am always thinking about ways to make my home more comfortable and enjoyable for my family. It is a blessing to make our home a respite from the busy world around us--a place where we can refresh our weary souls from the daily grind.

And there is nothing more beautiful than a home filled with peace, love, and tranquility, with an atmosphere that is nurturing to those around them.

I love seeing beautiful walls decorated with His Word. I know that I need the reminder and so do those in my home. It is uplifting, it draws our minds to what matters, it convicts the heart.

That is why I love these scriptures and inspirational quotes for the wall that can be found at Fruitful Vine Creations:

Help for the Homemaker: Why You Need to Try Build a Menu & Special Giveaway!




 Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. 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




As a homemaker do you ever feel at times that you have a lot on your plate?

If you struggle with the following:

  •  Figuring out what to feed your family every day... day after day.
  •  Meal planning takes too long, is confusing and feels like a chore
