Child Training Boot Camp Bible Study

How do you find balance in your life? What are the things you do? Do you workout? Go for a walk? Have a spa day? Or do you turn to the Bible? I have started a new devotional for the month of May, and look forward to finding a great deal of balance in my days.

Child Training Boot Camp

One thing I have come to notice, when I take the time each day to sit still and quiet with the Lord, I find myself to be happier, calmer and more in control of things. When I get "too busy" to sit down and talk with the Lord, my days are chaos. The kids don't listen and the cat starts to climb the walls!

This month, I plan to spend my time with the Lord using the Child Training Boot Camp: A 30 Day Bible Study from Pam Forster and Doorposts. This Bible study is made with busy moms in mind and has me hooked from the beginning.

I know…it is still kind of the beginning of the month, how could I talk like I have done this before? Oh, because I did! When Doorposts offered it as a monthly study. Only I was "too busy" at that time and didn't finish. But you know what? I learned that I need to pray for the time to sit down and do this. I need this quiet, away from kids and stress time. I need my kids to see me reach out to the Lord when the times are tough and gather the strength from Him to get to the next day.

ChildTrainingBootCamp

That is the nice thing about this Bible study! I can include the kids in it with me! Yes, the kids can study with me, two birds, one stone!! This Bible study is written for mom, or dad, first and is followed up by a section for the kids. So, you learn something, you turn around and teach it to your kids in their words! Um, win-win anyone?

Now, another benefit to this study? I am spending time alone with the Lord, my kids get to have a bible study with me AND I am learning more about how to be a better parent in the eyes of the Lord. I am taking the time to read in the Bible on how God wants me to parent. Not the latest self-help book (although I have read some good ones), but the Bible! What better self-help book than that?!?!

So, this is how I am finding my balance in the daily life of this crazy Hopkins Homeschool House. How do you find your balance in your house?

5 Favorite Mother’s Day Gifts for Under $50

Mother's Day is quickly approaching. This is one of those days when mom gets to get spoiled. While I love this day and all that the kids and daddy want to do for me, I am a simple girl. I have never really fallen for the physical gift side of days like this. All I want is a day with no fighting between the kids, a day when they listen and help without being told 10 times. But, we all know that for kids, this is hard. So, I figured, while they work on that, I would put together a simple wish list of simple things that I would appreciate in honor of Mother's Day.

Mother's Day Gifts

1. No More Perfect Moms by Jill Savage

After reading Better Together by Jill Savage, I am interested in more of these wonderful mom books. The ones that help me realize that I am not alone and that I am a good mom and that I try hard. I feel like this book will help build off the last one I read and would love this in either physical or eBook format.

2. Kiss My Face Whenever Shampoo and Conditioner

I would love a spoil mom shampoo and conditioner set. You know, that set that you really love, but know that you can spend that extra money on an extra meal, or a new pair of pants for the child who won't stop growing? Yeah, Mother's Day is a great time to be spoiled like that!

3. Gardening Gloves

I love my gardening time. I have been super busy the last two years, but I really want to get back into it more this year. I love a good pair of gloves when I am in the garden. Even though I only wear them half the time, I still love them for when I need to really get dirty, yet I need a clean hand for the kids on the run.

4. Sloggers Garden Shoes

I have heard a lot of good about these. They look really comfortable and that is something that every mom needs. These slip on and off, and when you are busy chasing children around, the simplicity of that is tremendous!

5. Mom Coffee Mug

Um…coffee, yes! I love collecting mugs from my kids. They are my all-time favorite gifts. I always have a cup or 10 of coffee in the morning and this is my way to remember to slow down for a moment. You can never go wrong with getting me a coffee mug from my kids!!

These are my top 5 "things" that I would love for Mother's Day. While these are great, I am hoping for a great day with my husband and kids. Knowing that I will be spending the day with them is so much more exciting than any gift that could be bought for me.

So, moms. What is your favorite "thing" or part of Mother's Day? What are you looking forward to the most?

Better Together Because You’re Not Meant to Mom Alone ~ A Book Review

Hey mom! Yeah, you. The one who feels like she is alone in this journey. The one who doesn't think any of those other moms know what she is going through. Do I have your attention? Good!

Better Together Book Review

You are not alone mom. You have a whole band of us that feel the same way. That are going through the same things. We need to get together and hold each other up. Keep each other strong. Jill Savage has written a great book to help us with that! You need to grab your own copy of Better Together Because You're Not Meant to Mom Alone.

Better Together explores the notion that women are not designed to mother alone. We are designed to mother in relationship with other women who understand what a mom's life is like. We're also designed to mother in relationship with the God who created us. This book encourages every mother to find her mothering community, a place where she can both give and receive support in the many forms moms need. Beyond encouraging moms to be in community, Better Together teaches how to build a tribe and what to do together once you have one, such as learn together, help together, care together, share together, pray together, forgive together, and encourage together.

Better Together Book

I was blessed to be able to review this book. As a homeschool mom of four kids, there are lots of things I feel like I am alone in. Being a mom shouldn't be one of them and this book has helped me to understand this. I have enjoyed reading what Jill has to say and following her tips on how to build and strengthen my friendships with other mothers.

Just a little about Jill:

Jill Savage is an author and international speaker who helps moms be the best they can be. As the Founder and CEO of Hearts at Home, Jill has led thousands of moms to keep their priorities straight and their heart in tune with God.

A mother of five, Jill is passionate about strengthening families. Not only has she spoken in the United States but she has also encouraged moms in Austria, Germany, Hungary, and was a featured presenter at the World Congress of Families Conference in Poland. She has been featured on K-Love Radio, Family Life Radio, Focus on the Family Radio, Thriving Family magazine, Marriage Partnership magazine, and Guideposts magazine.

Jill and her leadership team at Hearts at Home bring encouragement to over 10,000 moms a year with their annual Hearts at Home conferences. Jill is also the host of the HeartBeat radio program and she encourages over 40,000 moms in the monthly Hearts On-The-Go eNewsletter.

Only see

In Better Together, Jill gives us the benefits of friendship first. We are shown how important the friendship is in our lives. These benefits remind us that working and fighting for a friendship is important. After this, we move forward into the actual building of friendships. She ends each chapter with friendship assignments. These fun assignments are our building blocks. These simple assignments are very thoughtful and easy to do. Anyone can do them, even a busy mom!

I went into the books wondering how much I really needed these friendships. I knew it was nice, but to see and read about how much they are needed, made me slow down for a moment. Doing each of the assignments at the end of the chapters slowed me down even more. They helped me to be a better friend, and in return, receive better friendships.

Moms, if you feel like you are alone, please know that you are not. You have a support system waiting for you. All you need to do is ask. This is the hardest step, but with Better Together you can do it! Head on over and grab your own copy, you can thank me later!

What is the hardest part of mom friendships for you?

Wellness Wednesday ~ Walking and Water

Walking and Water

So here I go. I have been meaning to write this post, but I am a busy mom. When do I have the time to do things for myself? I mean, getting a shower in more than once a week is a win! But when you're on the airplane they tell you to take care of yourself before you take care of others. Well, this applies to in the house too mom!

I have decided that 2016 is the year when this mom is going to take care of herself first! I have made my plans and goals, and will take this journey one day at a time. What is my goal? To be healthier! I don't care about a number on the scale, as long as I can keep up with the kids and not be winded. I want my clothes to feel good and my health is number one.

Walking and Water

Now, this is easier said than done for most of us, isn't it? We make these plans, get it all written out, and then the baby needs us, or the lunch needs to be cooked, or homeschool lessons need our attention and before you know it, it is time for bed. Because that is one of our goals too, to be in bed at a decent time so we can be well rested! Oh I didn't even mention anything about the house!

See how easy it is for us to be distracted from taking care of us? This is not good! I want to change that, and will have to take some small steps to make that happen. Will you join me?

First, I have put my Jawbone pedometer back on. I used it a lot at the beginning of the summer, and then I forgot it one day, and then another, until it was just sitting there collecting dust. This simple little thing has me focused on how much I am moving. I am making an effort to get 5,500 steps a day to start. This may not seem too hard, but try this once! I notice that now that I have it on I am walking circles more, but hey, I am moving!

To help me get those steps in, I have started following Jessica Smith TV and love her walking workouts! I really love this video where I can pick which mile to do, and this one is great for when I only have 15 minutes. Every little bit of walking helps and 1 mile is about 2,000 steps. So that alone helps take a chunk out of my steps each day! Heck, even walking around the living room for 5 minutes every hour can help you out! Get up and walk with me really quick?

Walking and Water

(Walking around the room with a baby on my shoulders!)

Wow, that 5 minutes of walking got me 400 steps, what did you get?

Now, I just can't think that moving is the only thing that will make me healthier. Yes, it is a large part of it, but really what you put into your body matters too. My hardest thing about what I put in, is my water. I like water, but I tend to forget to drink it. I have my cups of coffee in the morning, and then get busy. Sometime after lunch I will open a can of pop or an energy drink. By supper time I maybe have one cup of water in me, and by bed, maybe 2 or 3. This is HORRIBLE! I can't have that when I am trying to teach my kids about being healthy and drinking their water. So what is a mom to do? I downloaded an app on my phone. Hydro Coach sends me notifications of when I should be drinking more water. In fact, it just went off as I am typing, hold on while I grab a glass of water. Hey, join me quick? I will wait for you!

(drinking my water)

Now don't you feel better already?!?!

With this added water I have taken in less pop during the day, and even stopped with the energy drink! One or two of my cups will have some Lemon essential oil in them, I couldn't go without that! Want to know why? Send me an email and I will fill you in!

Well…now that we drank some water and did some walking, I need to get back to homeschool and kids! Next week I will let you know how I am doing and we can talk food!!

What will you be doing this week? More water and walking? I want to know how you are going to take care of you mom! Drop me a comment below, so send me an email!

 

God bless and keep you!!

Amanda

Tips for the Picky Eater in Your House

Tips for Picky Eaters

Do you have a picky eater in your house? That one child who will only eat read food, but not green? Or the one who won't eat veggies and just fruit? There are many different stages of the picky eater, and sometimes it is not a picky eater, but a growth spurt or something more.

Tips for Picky Eaters

We have gone through the many stages of a "picky eater" in our house with all the kids. But they haven't been just picky. Moe Man has a texture issue. This has nothing to do with the actual food, but the way he was raised the first 5 years of his life. I have had to readjust my thoughts from the get go with him! This has made it easier to for me understand the other kids when they went through their phases. Right now Baby Girl is in the middle of this stage. At least with her I know she can outgrow it, where Moe Man may have to deal with this for some time.

Little Miss is the child who has given me a run for my money! She started out as a dream eater. She would eat anything and everything. She went from nursing straight to table food and skipped the baby food stage. But when she turned 2 years old, she stopped. Just quit. She would only eat hot dogs, chicken nuggets and fruit snacks. This child taught me that the saying "They will eat when they are hungry" is not a saying you tell a parent who is worried about the food that is, or isn't, going into their child!

Ray Ray has been the good eater. I don't think he has ever had an issue with food until recently. His deal right now is no chicken nuggets. He will do chicken tenders, but nuggets are out of the question! Now this kid is the kid who NEEDS sautéed mushrooms on his t-bone steak, so I will deal with the chicken nugget issue!

Now, how in the world do you "make" your child eat their food? First off, you don't make them eat anything! They won't. No matter what you think, you won't be able to make them do it. But there are some tips on how to help them change their minds about what they do and don't eat. We have tried all the tips, some of them work for one child and not the others, some worked for all the kids. It really depends on the child. You are their parent and you are the only one who knows your child the best.

The very first thing I recommend is to read the book, French Kids Eat Everything: How Our Family Moved to France, Cured Picky Eating, Banned Snacking, and Discovered 10 Simple Rules for Raising Happy, Healthy Eaters*. This book helped open my eyes to a lot of things that we were doing wrong and showed what the French do and why their kids truly do eat so much better than we do here in the States.

After reading that book, we made some new rules for our house. Each child has their one "no-no" food. The one food that they really don't even want to take one bite of. This food is not decided upon at the beginning of each meal, not in the middle of the meal, this is something that mom and dad have taken notice of. We have sat down with that child and talked to them about it. This is Ray Ray's chicken nugget. Little Miss has her green peppers that she won't touch. This is fine by me. This is the one food per child that I will make something different for them.

Now, we also have set meals and snacks. The kids don't get to just run to the snack cupboard and grab a snack when they want to. We like to try and space the meals and snacks out so that when the important meals come along they are hungry. We aim for a snack no later than 2 hours before the next meal. Water is fine, but the actual food has to be timed just right. This has helped us, and them, to be ready to eat a real meal and not be full from the snacks.

Now, just because we know that not all kids are the same, I want to tell you want else we try to do. We are members of the "one bite" club. This club is only for those of us who will try one bite of all the foods on our plate at every meal. Now this works well with the keep having them try the same food more than once. Just like when they were babies, you need to keep trying those foods more than once before your child can really know if they like something or not.

I like to have the children at the table. Even if they don't plan on eating what you make, I still make the kids sit at the table with us. We are a family and I expect them to sit with the family at the table for supper. But to make it fun, once or twice a month, sometimes more, I allow the kids to make the Hopkins Restaurant come to life.

What does this mean? Well, the kids plan a menu, from beginning to end. They also need to plan the ingredients, and shopping. They work together to print up a menu, they decide who has what job between the server, cook and dishwasher (I make them all work together, but one person has a name each time). When I give them the chance to be in control of the food, they seem to enjoy eating it more. Funny how that works!

While all these are wonderful ideas, I know that not everyone will work with every child. How to do you help make sure that your picky eater gets to eat?

2016 Reading List

I love the new year, with all the new goals for every area of our lives. If you can think it, you can make a goal for it! This is both good and bad, I like to look at the good parts of it, and I hope you will join me!

2016 Reading List

This week, I have been planning out what books I want to read this year. Now I am not talking about those read aloud books that you read to the kids. I am talking about the books that mom reads for mom. Those are the good books!

This year I hope to read 24 mom books. That is right, 24 books that are not for the kids or written for kids. Although one or two may be the young adult, (I do like to know what Moe Man is reading). 24 mom books means that I would want to focus on 1 book every 2 weeks. This should not be hard, but this is me we are talking about. I have put all mommy things on hold and only focused on the kids.

To me, 2 books a month that are not mom books is heaven! I used to read mommy books nonstop, then I had kids. The kids made it hard to find time for mommy. But I have plans to change that this year. Not only will I be going back to something I love, reading, but I will be showing my kids that reading is something that we all should do.

So, what books do I plan to read? Well, I have a very rough draft of what I want to read. This will change I am sure! Why? Because the library is full of wonderful books, I have books waiting on my bookshelf and Amazon is killing me with those free book deals! Yeah, those deals make me load up on books I don’t know if I will ever read! But this year I hope to put a small dent in that list!

Here is my list, with links of course!

Right now I am currently in the process of reading these two:

Pines (The Wayward Pines Trilogy, Book 1)

Submerged (Alaskan Courage Book #1)

These two are books that I have been trying to finish. I figure I might as well finish them with this goal/challenge that I have set up for myself.

After these two, my ideas are to read:

The Last Survivors: A Dystopian Society in a Post Apocalyptic World

Witch Is When It All Began (A Witch P.I. Mystery Book 1)

The Veritas Conflict

Deer Season (Ray Elkins Thriller Series)

Dead Wood (A Private Investigator Murder Mystery Series) (John Rockne Mysteries Book 1)

Someone Else's Daughter: Book I (A Miranda's Rights Mystery 1)

A Promise for Ellie (Daughters of Blessing Book #1)

The Thorn (The Rose Trilogy Book #1)

Once Upon a Summer (Seasons of the Heart, Book 1)

The Potluck Club (The Potluck Club, Book 1)

Blueprint Homeschooling: How to Plan a Year of Home Education That Fits the Reality of Your Life

The Good Neighbor The Good Neighbor

Terms of Use

Bone Dust: A Medical Thriller (The Gina Mazzio RN Medical Thriller Series Book 5)

Finding Hope (Generations of Hope Book 1)

Death of a Dapper Snowman (Book 1 of a Humorous Cozy Murder Mystery Series): Stormy Day Mystery #1

Transfer of Power (A Mitch Rapp Novel Book 1)

The Life and Legacy of Pope John Paul II

Out of the Storm (Beacons of Hope): A Novella

One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

The 'One Thing' Is ­Three: How the Most Holy Trinity Explains Everything

I am hoping to read all of these books by this time next year. But, like I said…this whole free book thing from Amazon, well, that could change things in this list mighty quick!

What are your book choices for this year? Do you have a top three that you really want to read?

Koru Naturals and Blue Tansy Cream ~ A Schoolhouse Crew Review

Koru Naturals Review

Koru Naturals has done it again. They have shown me wonderful products that I did not know I needed, until I used them! For this review my family used the Skin Clear Cream, Manuka Honey Propolis Soap and the Emu Oil and Blue Tansy Oil Cream.

Koru Naturals Review

Skin Clear Cream

Moe Man and I used the Skin Clear Cream. The ingredients include items such as Manuka Honey (raw and unpasteurized) and pure steam-distilled East Cape Manuka Oil. There is also Kawakawa and Harakeke, Burdock Root, Thyme, and Canadian Aspen Bark. All of these are items to help clear up acne prone skin, which Moe Man had, and help promote skin elasticity, who doesn’t want that?

While I didn’t have the acne prone skin, I figured we would both use this cream to see who liked it better. Moe Man, being a teenage boy, didn’t really care for the extra step after washing his face. However, when he started noticing some clearing of the skin he didn’t argue as much.

This lotion is “a little goes a long way” kind of lotion. I found this out the hard way when I used it the first time. You really only need a little! I noticed with my sensitive skin, that this had a slight tingle and warming affect after applying it. Nothing horrible, but something I was not used to. Moe Man did not notice this and had no issues with it.

 

Koru Naturals Review

Manuka Honey Propolis Soap

We love honey soap in this house. It is said to be a great antibacterial properties and with Daddy going through some health issues, antibacterial is a good thing. While we have tried other honey soaps, this is by far the better of them!

Daddy has some issues that cause him to have intense sweaty spells. These lead to feeling dirty and greasy. However, this soap takes that feeling away and leaves you feeling clean all over again. While cleaning this good you would be worried about being dry…the only dryness we felt was when using this on our face. When used on the body, we felt clean and not dry.

This is something that we will continue to have in our bathroom, and have an extra on hand! Yes, we love it that much!

 

Koru Naturals Review

Emu Oil and Blue Tansy Oil Cream

Now this…this is something I don’t know how we lived without it! This jar does not get left alone for a single day here! While it is said to be odorless, I notice a refreshing minty scent when using this. This is not a smell like other creams used for pain, but a nice scent.

The combination of Emu Oil, Blue Tansy, Arnica Extract, MSM and Aloe Vera make this cream great for pains on your body. Working on the computer like I do, I notice a tightness in my shoulders. After using this on a regular basis, I did not notice as much of an issue when I woke up.

Daddy has nerve pain and volunteered to help me review this. While I noticed a change, daddy was shocked at the relief he got from using this. Within a few minutes his nerve pain had subsided and after using this on a regular basis, he didn’t notice it nearly as much.

This is not a cure all cream, but it sure is a helper cream!

Koru Naturals Review

Our Final Thoughts

I don’t think there is an item on Koru Naturals’ site that we would not like! So far everything we have tried has turned out to be something we found out we needed. These three items will be kept in our house and we will continue to use and purchase more after they run out. Finding these has been wonderful and we are thankful for being given the chance to try them!

Now, Koru Naturals has MANY more wonderful items that we were not able to try this time. If you want to check these out, head on over and see what these other lucky families have said about them!

Finding Noah ~ A Movie Review

#FindingNoah

Have you ever wondered what happened to Noah’s Ark? Will we ever find any pieces of it? If you ever think like this, you need to take some time and watch Finding Noah when it comes to theaters October 8th 2015!

#FindingNoah

I was able to view Finding Noah in advance, and I loved watching every minute of this wonderful film! I have felt like these men, and felt drawn to know what happened to Noah’s Ark. However, I am not capable of looking for it like them, so I will leave that up to them!

This film takes us on the journey with a group of men up Mt Ararat in search for the Ark. A trip that they have taken numerous times looking for the one thing everyone wants to find…Noah’s Ark.

For over 2,000 years, man has been searching for the final resting place of Noah's Ark.  Though there have been many attempts, few have been able to fully explore the one place specifically noted in the Bible: Mount Ararat.  Located in Eastern Turkey, Agri Dagh or "The Painful Mountain" is the tallest mountain in the region and lies in the very center of a centuries old, geo-politically unstable hot spot.  With constant threats of deadly rock slides, hidden crevasses, and glacial ice falls, the Kurdish Rebel held mountain poses great risk to any explorer, let alone those performing a thorough scientific investigation.  

Join director/producer Brent Baum and the FINDING NOAH film crew as they follow an expedition of intrepid explorers on a perilous trek up to Mt. Ararat's desolate summit. There, using state of the art technology and real-time satellite imagery, this team of archeologists, scientists and professional mountaineers will begin a grid work of exploration unlike any before, hoping to finally resolve the age-old question:  did Noah and his Ark actually exist?  

Shot in never-before filmed locations in the harshest of conditions, this unprecedented feature-length documentary shows just how far men are willing to go to discover the truth.  Narrated by Academy Award nominee Gary Sinise, FINDING NOAH is more than a quest for answers, it is a testament of the human spirit, where belief and the need for exploration transcend risk and limitation. 

 

This 116 minute documentary will be in theaters for one night only! If you have the chance, I say go see it! I have always loved watching and arguing with these types of films, being as strong in my faith as I am, but found myself in love from the beginning and wanting to know more. Waiting to see if they found Noah’s Ark and making the kids sit quiet while we waited on results. Yes, I had the kids watching with me! This film is Not Rated, but they do recommend for ages 12+ (there is a scene or two with someone getting hurt, but my kids handled it fine).

So, the question…did they find Noah’s Ark? What do you think? Do you really think I am going to tell you? What I can say, I was happy with the way this ended. That is all. I am not one to ruin the end of movies and I still won’t! Find out if this is in a theater near you and go watch! You won’t be disappointed!

Follow along on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and on their Website! Check for tickets and a theater near you right here! If I can find one within 30 minutes of me, you should be able to find one too!
