Homemade Laundry Soap

Trying to be a good steward of God's money is most of the time difficult. It doesn't matter if your a stay-at-home-mom or a working mom. When you have kids money is TIGHT!

AJ got transfered before the kids and I were able to leave. Paying our house mortgage and rent on a room for him definately stretched us further than we had ever been before. In the past I had prayed for ways to make money to help our family but this time it was different. This time I started praying to be a Good Steward of the things God had given us. I needed and wanted ways to be a Savvy Saving Home Maker.

While cutting coupons one night with friends one told me about making my own Laundry Detergent. Needless to say I was floored. After all, detergent in the store was anywhere from $10 to $15 and above. A few days later I was on my way. I made batches of that stuff passing it out to friends and family. I was so amazed! It made A Lot and it worked really well. This is the recipe I use. Instead of the Fels Naptha soap I found Zote at Big Lots. It works very well. I also saw an episode of The Duggar Family 18 (19 now) and they make their own as well. Go here to see their Laundry Soap recipe and some other favorite recipes they have.

Finding God in the Laundry Room by Lara Krupicka

"The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine." 1 Samuel 17:37a (NIV)

As I carry a load of clothes into my laundry room, I glance at the breakfast dishes in the sink and the piles of toys in the family room. Here we go again, I think. Another day of cooking and cleaning that will only be repeated again tomorrow. What is the point of it all? Why am I stuck with such a meaningless existence? When will I ever get to spend my days doing things that have a lasting impact?

Everyday life can be so uninspiring at times. I want action and excitement. I want something to happen. But then when it does (like the day the washing machine overflowed into my basement), I get all out of sorts. I have a hard time handling the disruption to my simple routine. This is not the kind of excitement I'm wanting, I think to myself. I grumble and complain my way through the problems that come my way.

When I consider this verse from 1 Samuel, I realize that, unlike me, David had learned the benefit of being faithful in seemingly insignificant work. He did not despise the lonely job of shepherd. Instead day in and day out he patiently watched in the fields, making sure the sheep didn't wander or get eaten. He took his work seriously, and in doing so he trusted God to be with him in the simple task of herding sheep. He didn't say that once he was a mighty warrior like his older brothers were, then he would trust God. He did it right where he was. Then when trouble came to his quiet field, in the form of a lion or a bear, it was God he relied on to come to his aid.

This dependence of David's is what prepared him for one of the turning point moments in his life. He was able to face the giant Goliath with confidence, not because he'd fought in many battles. He could do this because he'd seen God work in the everyday and knew God would show up on the battlefield too.

I still have a lot to learn about dependence on God. Yet I know that as I depend on Him in the routine tasks of my life, He is preparing me for circumstances yet to come. When I turn to Him in the midst of my laundry room troubles, I experience His care for me and I grow in my ability to know that He will "deliver me" from things both great and small. And in my dependence on God, the chores of cooking, cleaning and laundry begin to take on meaning. My life isn't as pointless as it once seemed.

Dear Lord, thank You for being with me today. Help me to see You in the mundane things of my life and show me how You can bring significance to those things. Teach me dependence on You as You taught the young shepherd, David. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

The Day I Sat in God's Lap by Tracie Miles

"Come near to God and he will come near to you." James 4:8a (NIV)

A couple months ago, I found myself in despair. I had been hurt and felt betrayed by a friend. How was I going to fix the issues I was suddenly facing? My heart and mind were overwhelmed with the storm that had unexpectedly raged into my life.

One Sunday afternoon, I was feeling especially sad and worried about it. To hide my tears from my family, I wandered quietly into the solace of my bedroom. It was a rainy day and the room was dim, so I clicked on the lamp beside my bed. As the warm glow of light bathed the room, my eyes fell upon the little glass box a sweet friend had given me a few weeks earlier.

This beautiful engraved box, wrapped in a soft yellow bow, was filled with little slips of carefully folded papers, and on each slip of paper was an encouraging Bible verse. This would have been a wonderful gift in itself, but to make it even more special, my friend had inserted my name into each of the verses. When I read them, I felt as if God was speaking directly to me, as if He was calling out to Tracie, by name.

As I sat quietly alone in my bedroom unfolding each little slip of paper, tears streamed down my face. I read every verse silently, asking God to hear my prayers, comfort me, take away my hurt, and show me the way.

After a few minutes of intense prayer and focus, I became aware of God's presence in the room.

I felt Him wrap His holy comforting arms around me and pull me into His presence. Suddenly, an idea popped into my mind. Instead of putting the papers back in the glass box after reading them, I spread them out all around me. Most were in front of me so I could read and focus on them over and over. But I placed several to my right, se veral to my left, and even put a few behind my back.

As I sat on my bed, fully surrounded on every side by holy words, God impressed upon my heart that I was virtually nestled into His lap; the lap of my heavenly Father. The thought nearly took my breath away.

What an awesome privilege to be positioned right smack in the middle of God's Word. To be sitting in the lap of the One who created me. To be entirely physically surrounded by His truths. To see His written promises speaking specifically to me.

I realized I wasn't merely surrounded by slips of paper. I was surrounded by countless reassurances that He heard my prayers. What a gentle reminder that I needed to put my trust in Him, and I really could find rest in Him.

I thanked God for reminding me that when I seek Him, I will find Him, and for helping me see just how alive His Word really is.

Dear Lord, thank You for who You are. For the privilege of getting to spend time with You and sit qu ietly with You. Thank You for engaging in conversation with me, a broken and needy soul. Help me have the strength through You to overcome the obstacles that Satan would love for me to trip over. Give me the passion and commitment to continue seeking You with all my heart, even when life gets tough or people disappoint me. Thank You for always being there when I need You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

I Love to wake up in the early stillness of the morning. Everything is quiet and peaceful. The day is fresh and new. It's the perfect time for some reading and worshiping.

Yesterday I had a bit if a breakdown while talking to God. First, it was in the afternoon which is not for me. All of the hustle from the day was already on my mind and I couldn't really concentrate. Second, I just felt so lost and without purpose.

Here just a while ago I was busy with God's work and have been that way for a while. A leader in MOPS, choir, working in the nursery, teaching a kindergarten Sunday School class, A Bible Study class and up to my eye balls with my 3 babies, especially after AJ left. Not to mention extended family obligations and friends. I didn't do all of this at once but 2 to 3 at a time for about 4 years.

I loved every min of everything and don't regret anything but I think as busy as I made myself serving everyone (which I was born for) I started forgetting my number 1 purpose. The one I had wanted since I was little. My purpose to my family!

If your going to be busy; be busy for the Lord. My spiritual life was good. But God knew I needed a vacation and not just a week. I needed to just sit. Just sit with my babies, Just breathing them in and allowing God to breath in them.

I once read a devotion that asked the question "What will your kids say about you after your gone?" And I thought "Mom was always helping and working at church." Which sounds great, but I wasn't working very good at home. I didn't know how to balance. I ALWAYS thought God, Church, Family. So I thought I was suppose to do all those God things before my family. Until my sister had to tell me NO! it's your walk with God, Family, then your work for the church. (the church was in no way asking me to do these things. It was all stuff I wanted and gladly did) She explained it in length and more than just No!

So, here I am lately needing to fill a habit. I need to be busy. Mops, Choir, Teaching? "God I need a purpose, I have been here 4 months. Surely I am rested and your ready for me to go. I need you to show me what you want me to do." So I prayed heavy and pretty much aimlessly yesterday.

God and I have a direct line so I knew he would answer. I just didn't think it would be exactly what he has told me in the past. To me and by using at least 2 other people. One who knew me but not what I was praying for and the other didn't know me at all." "Rest In Me." that was his answer.... I just don't know how exactly. Which is why I believe he moved us up here.

So, I woke up in the quiet stillness of the morning, put on some worship music, and started praying. Got my Mom's Devotional Bible I had gotten at Mops Convention one year and opened to (just opened, no flipping or searching) and while I am reading I can imagine God is looking down shaking his head at me saying, "Girl you don't have a clue. How many times do I need to tell you."

Bahhhhhh..... Sheep are not the brightest of animals.

And it goes on to read.

We have needs, just like sheep. And we, like sheep, are sometimes to dumb to know just how to meet them. We run up bills, buying whatever we believe will fill our emptiness. We grab a box of cookies, trying to eat away or frustration with ourselves. We back our selves into so many commitments that the very breath is squeezed form our days. All out of our desire to be valuable to others. We like sheep, are not the brightest. We need a Shepard to guide us carefully, to show us green pastures where we can be fed and quiet waters where our souls can be restored.

The passage to go with that is: Psalm 23

No matter how many times I need something he is always there. Taking time out for my smallest need. He is such a great and loving Father. It simply amazes me how much I am loved. I am just so Thankful to be a child of the King.

When I got home from taking Cohen to school I had these laying on my door step. Some delicious fall goodies and a Thanksgiving Day Prayer from Shelly. Thanks Shelly!
Lord, so often times, as any other day
When we sit down to our meal and pray

We hurry along and make fast the blessing
Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing

We're slaves to the olfactory overload
We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold

But Lord, I'd like to take a few minute more
To really give thanks to what I'm thankful for

For my family, my health, a nice soft bed
My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head

I'm thankful right now to be surrounded by those
Whose lives touch me more than they'll ever possibly know

Thankful Lord, that You've blessed me beyond measure
Thankful that in my heart lives life's greatest treasure

That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place
And I'm ever so grateful for Your unending grace

So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You've provided
And bless each and every person invited Amen!

Oh, how I miss Florida's hurricane season. The storms, the rain and the power going out for days on end.

This was last years storm. It was a little harder than usual, 1- because it hadn't been that bad in years (well, where we were at) and 2-AJ had just left, so it was just me and the kids.

As much as I love the season I wasn't emotionally ready to handle all that came with this one. Thank God for family. My Granny came and stayed which made it fun (I love as much time as I can get with her) except for when she kept saying she thought she could go home.. Why? All because I didn't have a coffee pot. So, off I went to Walmart... and my cousins Ammie and Josh came over. Ammie for the socializing and Josh for the Man Labor:) They were so helpful in so many ways... Plus, the kids ALWAYS love being together, no matter the weather.

They say everyone has a twin. This is Cohen's. Her name is Lola and she is AJ's cousin's little girl. She is adorable! As soon as I saw her I thought she looks just like Cohen. They played very well together too. Just wish we could see them more.

Cartwheels in Heaven by Tracie Miles

"But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love." Psalm 33:18 (NIV)

Something was missing. I tried to write, but no words came. I tried to focus, but my attention wandered. I tried to pray, but words were few.

I finally realized what was missing: hope.

My sweet sister has been fighting a battle with Multiple Sclerosis for twelve years. Each day brings new difficulties, new hurts, new medicines, and new reasons to lose hope. As I watched her struggle day after day, my heartbreak became overwhelming, and I had lost sight of any reason to be hopeful.

One day recently as I chatted with my sister, she told me about a dream she had the night before. In this dream, she was running, doing cartwh eels, and playing rambunctiously with her children. She said the dream seemed to last for hours, and she vividly remembered laughing and feeling happy.

Then she woke up. To reality. A reality where she can barely walk, much less run. A reality where carefree romping and playing is nothing more than a memory. A reality filled with pain, disappointment and a lack of hope. She awoke and cried.

I've prayed for her healing so many times that I've wondered if God is tired of hearing it. I've pleaded with Him to give her comfort and peace. I've pressured Him for discernment and a glimpse of His plan so I can understand her plight.

I've found myself wondering if hope is realistic when a situation appears hopeless? Is physical healing possible, when all odds seem against it? Is comfort and freedom from pain attainable, when every cell inside a body is raging a war against itself? Is peace actually available for those who find no end to the hurting?

In my quest to find an answer, I looked up the definition of hope: The feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best; to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence; to feel that something desired may happen. And the last definition said this, to continue to hope, although the outlook does not warrant it.

As I pondered that, my spirit leapt. This was the meaning God wanted me to understand today.

Thinking back on the prior week, I could see how God had filled my days with gentle, subtle reminders of hope through verses, emails, and devotions. He had heard the cries of my heart. I felt His Spirit leading me to a place of truly believing in the hope that only He can offer, even when the earthly outlook does not warrant it.

He had been sweetly nudging me to seek hope in Him. To allow His reassurance to saturate my heart, and fill that empty, dry space. I was reminded that hope is as essential for survival as food and water . Hope is life-giving.

My sister's 10 year-old daughter responded to her dream that morning. She told mommy not to be sad, because one day they could do cartwheels in heaven together. Upon hearing this, I felt hot tears and caught a glimpse of unfailing, eternal hope—right out of the mouths of babes.

Whether any of us do cartwheels on earth, or in heaven, is God's decision. But hope begins in believing that He was, is, and will forever be the source of our hope.

Sweet Jesus, forgive me for losing sight of where true hope is found. Infuse my heart and mind with the hope that can only be found in You. Please quench my thirst for understanding with reassurance of Your faithfulness. I ask that You guard my heart from the temptation to focus on the problem, instead of the One who holds everything in His hands. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

I have many favorite things; My Family, My Friends, Scrap booking, Food more food, raw cake batter and well... the list goes on... But now to add to my list are these wall sticker decor things.
A friend of mine, a couple of houses down, has what I thought was a stencil above her living room couch. So after asking her about it she sent me this website they are stickers. I Love Them.

Life According to Cohen

Last night after I tucked Cohen in and kissed him for the gazillionth time (which I love) I walked out of his room with tears in my eyes. At first the tears were because of a song he made up. (He has been doing that a lot) It was a good song. The entire song was about Christmas. There was a line in there that said "And people who don't have any one on Christmas until people come over and then they have some one to play with on Christmas" It was sooo adorable. He even threw some runs in dropping notes here and there.

The reason all the tears stayed and laughter didn't take over was because after he got done singing, we prayed and I don't mean I prayed... I mean "We Prayed" that little boy will pray like no-one's business. No pauses, no, "are we done yet?", no steady decline of his voice and the only one left is me. I mean this child prays! When Cohen started talking and for about 3 years after that, my sister would say "He's speaking in tongues" because only God knew what he was saying. Most of the time we had no clue. Even at 2; One day he woke up at 6 in the morning and found me face down in my prayer closet and asked "Mama, doin?" I simply told him I was praying and continued. The next thing I knew, I felt this tiny little body lay down beside me as close as he could and he started praying his little heart out" Once again I have no idea what he was saying or praying for but God knew.

And all the tears? One for pure heartfelt worship. Here this little guy is with no in-depth concept of Heaven & Hell or even realizing the pain Jesus suffered, but with his whole heart, mind and soul wants to reach out to God. The other tears are from a heavy heart as his mom. I see my little man now at 4 praying and being sensitive to other's needs and sensitive to God. What great and mighty things is God going to use him for? But that's not the heavy part, the heavy part is with God using him in all his glorious ways, how hard will the devil fight to seperate him from God? You see, the devil doesn't mess with people already in sin. He has them. What he wants is... those who aren't.

A Financially-Productive Woman by Glynnis Whitwer

"She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes." Proverbs 31:24 (NIV)

In today's economy, I look for every way to save money. I'm a sale-shopping, coupon-clipping, leftover-loving woman. I'm a firm believer in Benjamin Franklin's well-known adage, "A penny saved is a penny earned." And this past couple of years, my family has certainly had to apply that to our lives in greater measure.

Sometimes, however, saving money just isn't enough. As many families face a reduced income due to layoffs and company closures, there are only so many ways to cut corners. So I'm also a believer in trying to make money in creative ways. As many of us wonder what the future holds financially, I'd like to suggest we look at a biblical example of how to use the resources we have within our homes to increase our families' incomes.

One of the best examples I know is found in Proverbs 31. Throughout chapter 31 we meet a woman who was a good manager of all her resources, and in verse 24, we learn that she used her weaving skills to make money. As I consider this women's ingenuity, I learn that she identified a need (merchants needed sashes) and then used her skills (making garments) and energy (selling them) to increase her family's financial well being.

I wonder if many of us overlook this principle as we face a financially shaky future with dread. Perhaps we don't need to look for an employer that is hiring, but instead should consider how to use the resources God has already given us. On a recent trip, I met a wonderful example of a woman doing just that. She is past retirement age, lives alone and wanted to bring in extra income. Since I'm a small business owner, our commonalities got us talking.

This productive woman buys used wool sweaters, shrinks them and sews them into designer mittens using other fabrics and decorative accents. Then she sells them in a local shop where she has a booth. That's not all she sells. She has added hand-made products made by women working at home in other countries, plus some unique new clothing items she buys and resells. It all started with a creative idea, the use of her talents and some energy to sell them.

Artistic talents aren't the only resource we have to help our families. Many people have other skills that can be used to increase incomes. Some examples are physical strength, athletic training, organization, planning, love of travel, cooking, gardening and cleaning. Many have families that can help. This past summer I watched a local landscaper work every week with his two sons by his side. They are a family pulling together when it counts most.

No one wishes for hard financial times – though we can learn much in them. When God is on our side, there are always opportunities waiting to be uncovered. Instead of dreading the future, perhaps God wants to tap into the unique resources He has planted within our lives and family for such a time as this.

Dear Lord, I thank You today for the many resources You have given me. Thank You for my life, for my mind, for what health I have and for the hope you offer. Please help me to see how I might use these resources to become more financially productive. Only You know the true depth of my needs. So today I ask for Your help. I know I can do all things through You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
