Because I just lost my dear friend and sister-in-law to cancer treated with surgery, chemo and immunotherapy this spring, this topic remains hot on my mind, so I decided to write a concise, little post showing published, peer-reviewed scientific evidences of turmeric’s ability to prevent and treat breast cancer. I hope this will save you some work!…

I’ve never loved the “Mama Bear” analogy. When I think of Mama Bears, I picture moms who bite teachers’ heads off and elbow their way through crowds so their kids can get the best seat at story time.
I’d much rather be a Mama Swan, peacefully gliding through life with all my little cygnets in a row.
But I’m not. I’m the swan-faced mom with the heart of a grizzly.
“You have cancer.” As a wife and mother, those are the last words you ever want to hear.
Life was rolling along and my days were full with caring for a family, helping my husband run our remodeling business and putting our extra time into a church plant. And then cancer struck, not once, but twice.
The first time was in 2012: the diagnosis was ovarian cancer, stage 3.
The STEM movement is gaining momentum at home, as parents turn to STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) games and toys to teach these critical concepts during early childhood. Ten years ago, STEM toys were hardly a blip on manufacturers’ radar; today, they line the shelves of toy stores around the country. it is funny, but below are a plethora of the “toys” (though less expensive and less glamorous for marketing), that we older mamas used to use.
Since your school at home is now underway for this year, it seems a good time to share some ways to keep the little ones busy with STEM. I am sharing this post by my friend Joy Kincaid over at Artful Homemaking, with her permission:
Good character is the one thing that will help your children the most. And one of the best things you can do for your children is pray Scripture for them!
Whether you homeschool or not, you can have the best laid plans and have the most popular curriculum or best of food and interaction, but if your kids don’t have Godly character, you are going to have a hard time teaching them!
- Are you wanting to be more in control of your family’s health?
- Thinking of a safe and effective alternative to the flu shot?
- Wanting to get more self-sufficient by growing your own medicinal elderberries?
Then, this roundup is for you.
This post contains links to all of my favorite resources on Elderberries! Plus, these posts show peer-reviewed PubMed studies that are changing the way we think about flu!…
