Praying For Our Husbands

Praying for our husbands is a MUST in my opinion.  Unfortunately I didn't realize this until I was several years into my marriage.  Fortunately God got ahold of my heart and made me realize the importance of praying for my hubby.

I'm not talking about praying that God will change your husband.  I've been there and done that as well.  Turns out this isn't really what God intended when we pray for our husbands.  What I am talking about is praying FOR your husband.

A great resource I've found is Stormie Omartian's book, "The Power of the Praying Wife".  This book gives us one area to pray about for our husbands each day.  I have the book on my nightstand, but I also copied the list and have it inside my Bible.

What makes Stormie's book so great is that she has 30 things to pray over our husbands.  This works our perfectly so that you can pray each item over your husband each day of the month. 

Praying for my husband has made me see things in our marriage differently.  It has softened my heart when it was full of anger or bitterness.  It has made me realize more about my hubby and his heart.  It has encouraged me to try and be a better wife.  And I'd like to think it has blessed my husband in ways neither of us may know this side of heaven.

Take the next 30 days to pray over your husband.  See what this can do no only for him, but you also!

Fun DIY Project~Make Your Own Butter

If you're looking for a fun and cheap activity to do with your kids, this is it!!  I recently did this with my homeschool co~op class and they loved it!  Since then, Sweetcheeks has been asking to do this almost every day!

It really is quite simple!  You just need some heavy whipping cream and a glass jar.  A hand mixer works well also, but then you'd miss out of the "funnest" part {sweetcheeks' description}!

Add some cream to the glass jar.  Any amount is fine.  If you want a small amount of butter, just add a small amount of cream.  If you're looking for an upper arm workout, then fill that jar!!  You can also add a pinch of salt if you want.

Next step.  Shake jar. 

Shake some more. 
Keep shaking.
When you get tired of shaking, have someone else shake the jar!
Look, you now have whipped cream.  Too bad that's not what we're making today!

Keep shaking!
Almost there!

Shake your entire body!!

Look, you now have a soft lump bathing in milk!

You did it!!

Yep, that's butter!

Strain the milk from the butter.  Save that milk.  This is buttermilk and can be used in recipe's.  Then wash the butter in cold water.  This gets the buttermilk off the butter which can make the butter go bad.

Put your butter in a container, and enjoy!

Another Liebster Award!!

Amanda over at Busy Mama 911 has nominated me for another Liebster Award!  Actually, she nominated me two weeks ago, but I'm just NOW getting this post finished!  I'm sure she has been wondering if I was ever going to accept this award!  My excuse is that it took me that long to write my acceptance speech.  I'd like to thank the academy....oh wait, wrong award!  I was nominated last October by another blogger for this award, and was super excited about being nominated again for it.  

If you need a reminder, the Liebster award is an award given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  Liebster is a German word that means: favorite, beloved, lovely, kind or dearest.  It is a way of learning a bit more about the bloggers who love to write their blogs. 

 Here are the rules....

~ List 10 random facts about yourself.

~Answer the 10 questions given to you.

~Create 10 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.

~ Choose 10 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.

~ Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.

~Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
10 Things about me!
~I earned the nickname "motormouth" in high school by my best friend's dad because apparently I talked too much and too fast!  I still like to talk and he still calls me "motormouth"!
~I love socks!  I like to wear colorful or crazy patterned socks, and I MUST wear them to bed.
~It drives me totally crazy when my kids {or anyone!} "write" on a window that has been fogged up.  House window, car window, mirror~~it doesn't matter.  I'm just kinda weird that way!
~ I do not like being home alone.  Not because of a fear, but I am so used to noise in the house that when I'm alone, it's too quiet!
~ Shoes and purses are my temptations when shopping.  Hubby put a stop to buying them many years ago, which I am actually thankful for, but a girl can still look and dream!!
~ I was born during the wrong era.  I love the lifestyle of Little House on The Prairie, and even though it was hard work, life seemed much simpler (well, because it really was!).   Although I will keep my electricity and indoor plumbing, thank you!
~ I hate going to the dentist.  Really!  Prior to this year, I had avoided the dentist for almost 8 years.  'Course that might be why I needed a root canal this year....
~ I'm turning into my mother and grandmother!  They both have a love for crochet and my grandma sews beautiful quilts.  I've become addicted to crocheting and I love to sew rag quilts.
~I am making my family crazy by playing Christmas music already!!  I LOVE Christmas!!
~I love watching old black and white movies.  {Especially Christmas movies!☺}

Amanda's 10 Questions for Me:
  1. Why did you start this blog? I saw the need in my own life for a woman to share the knowledge that they had learned about being a wife and mother.  I started this blog as a way for myself to pass along the things I have also learned on this journey.
  2. What is your favorite place to shop and why? I love shopping at thrift stores.  I enjoy saving money on things!
  3. Who is your blogging mentor? Hmmm, I don't really have one.  There are lots of bloggers that I look to when I have questions.
  4. Where do you find inspiration for your blog posts? Honestly, they just come to me as I go through each day.  I find inspiration in all kinds of things and the rest God just places on my heart.
  5. What is your favorite food? Hmmm, my fast response is peanut butter cups {my kids even give them to me for Christmas presents!!}, but I also love cherries and cheesecake {oooh, even better if they are both together~~the cherries and cheesecake I mean!}!!
  6. When do you find time to blog? usually when the kids are in bed, but I'm trying to carve out an hour or so in the afternoon to just work on blogging!  When the kids are put to bed I like to connect with hubby and that's a little difficult when I'm staring at a laptop!
  7. What’s your favorite beverage? At this time of year it is hot chocolate!  But during the warmer months, I must confess an addiction to Mt. Dew! {I know, I know...}
  8. What’s your biggest blogging challenge? Trying to get across what I want to say, and not worrying about what others might think about it.
  9. Do you have any pets? a black cat named "Whiskers"
  10. What is your favorite thing about blogging? the friends I've "met" since I started blogging. 

The questions for my nominee's:

  1. Why did you start your blog?
  2.  Who is your favorite character of the Bible?

    Worth Rubies~Eager To Work

    "She selects wool and flax, and works with eager hands."  Proverbs 31:13
    I know that women no longer need to spin their own yarn or create their own linens.  Even still, we can still find meaning in this verse of Proverbs 31.
    Years ago, women made their own clothing.  The Proverbs 31 woman would not only create her own clothing and that of her family, but she took great care to select the finest materials for the best price.  Many times to create clothing meant women spinning their own fabrics.  The Proverbs 31 woman was eager to do this work.  She was not lazy, but willingly helped her husband.
    While many of us may not make our own clothing, we can still spend time working with eager hands.  We must be willing to work along side our husbands  for the good of our family.   We must be eager {excited!} to help out in whatever may come our way.
    I admit that many times I am less than eager to do things to help out.  As we are in the process of updating our home, there is always something that needs to be done.  When hubby came to me recently asking for help on a project, I may have {ok, you know I did!} sighed and reluctantly gone to help.  This is not a woman who works with eager hands.  This verse will be especially helpful to me in the next few years months.
    This week we can work on our attitudes while we work alongside our husbands.  This may look different in each household.  Some of us literally work alongside our husbands each day.  Others of us work alongside our husbands as we raise our families.  However it may look, lets willingly and eagerly work.  We can work with eager hands as we work on becoming that Proverbs 31 woman.

    {Semi} Wordless Wednesday

    Here's the four year old wanted to push the button on the microwave to start it.  I pointed to this button and told him this is the one.  He said.....
    "I have to push the loading button?"
    It took me a moment to get what he was talking about.  Life is so different for kids who grow up with technology!  I would never have thought this button looked like the "loading" icon!!

    My Disorganization Is Wasting Money

    I just recently mentioned to hubby that since we moved we just can't seem to find our groove.  That's a normal thing after a move.

    The problem??

    We moved 6 months ago!!

    We've been busy with home improvements.  We've been busy with homeschooling and gardening and camping trips and soccer games.  We've been busy with life! 

    But busyness does not excuse my disorganization!  I've let a lot of things slide.  I haven't been good at housecleaning.  I've let laundry get behind.  I have had a hard time keeping up with groceries.  And all this disorganization is costing us money!

    Since I've gotten behind on meal and grocery planning, I'm making more trips to the grocery store.  More trips to the grocery store means spending money on things I could have gotten on sale, or things I normally would not have bought.  Our grocery budget has definitely been taking a hit lately. 

    I am wasting money on laundry also.  Hanging out clothes on the line helps save electricity, but if I'm not paying attention to the weather or getting behind on laundry, I use my dryer more often.  This is not helping my budget either!

    My disorganization has affected my time at home also.  I'm running here and running there.  This wastes gas, but more importantly takes time away from my family.  I've become a scatterbrained mom!!

    So, we've all had enough!  Hubby and I have "date nights" where we go out for supper, then go grocery shopping.  I'm planning my weeks out and making sure I am prepared for the week so I can do less running.  We're trying to find ways to get home improvements done, and still stick to cleaning schedules.  We are going to get back into a "groove"!

    I'd love to know what you do to stay organized while doing home improvements!

    Worth Rubies~Our Marriage

    "A wife of noble character who can find?  She is worth far more than rubies.   Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.  She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life."  Proverbs 31:10-12

    Some versions of the Bible use the term virtuous instead of noble.  The dictionary defines virtuous as having or showing high moral standards.  Proverbs states that this woman is so valuable, she is worth more than rubies.  Ladies, we are more valuable than jewels!

    The Proverbs 31 wife will have high standards.  These standards cover all areas of our lives, but most importantly our marriages.  Our husbands will fully trust us with all area's of their lives.  They know that we will always have their best interests in mind.  They know that we would never do or say anything that would bring them shame.  They are content and have all they need, because we as their wives are serving them.  Our husbands will have full confidence in us because we always work for their well being.  

    The Proverbs 31 woman respects her husband, is a helpmeet to her husband, and serves her husband in love

    That's a big request!  Sometimes we grumble when our husbands ask something of us.  Sometimes our husbands are difficult to respect.  Sometimes we just don't feel like meeting their needs before our own.  But this part of Proverbs 31 shows us just how good our marriages will be when we put our husbands and marriage first.  Our husbands will be happy husbands!

    Do we always have our husband's best interests in mind?  Do we anticipate their needs and then meet them?  Do our husbands trust us in all area's of their life?

    Is this an area we can work on this week?  Maybe it's asking our husbands how we can help them this week.  Maybe it's meeting our husbands needs before he even has to ask us.  Maybe it's as simple as picking up the house before he comes home from work.  Big or small, we all know those things that make our husbands happy. 

    Whatever area we can work on with our husbands, when we work on our marriages, we are also working on becoming a Proverbs 31 woman.

    Preparing For Christmas 2013

    I think I may have told you a time or two that I LOVE Christmas time!  I love everything about it {well, except the commercialism of the holiday}!  I have loved Christmas time as long as I can remember!  To tell the truth, I've been listening to Christmas music for a few weeks already!

    One of the reasons I've been listening to Christmas music is because I am already preparing my heart and mind for the holiday.  I start early and organize things to make my holiday as stress free as I can.  Several years ago, we had a crazy, chaotic Christmas that I vowed never to have that problem again.  So now I get busy in September or October and prepare for Christmas.  I know that makes it sound like we have a grand extravagant holiday {which we definitely don't!}, but really it's just because I want to focus on the real reason for Christmas~while still having the things we all love about the season each year.

    So how do I do that??

    Here's a few things I do to get ready for the holidays!
    • I start a gift list.  I try to get gifts throughout the year for the kids, but at this time of year I start thinking of others we might want to get gifts for.  This lists includes teachers {school, music, and Sunday School}, babysitters, or close friends.  I make a list of gift ideas and what I would need for those gifts.  This way I'm not scrambling to get a last minute gift, and I won't forget anyone, either!
    • Get the house ready for decorating.  We get our Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving.  I really don't want to spend the week of Thanksgiving getting the house ready for that when I'm already getting the turkey ready, so I plan ahead and prepare the house for the decorations ahead of time.  I usually do this the week before Thanksgiving so it is all ready. 
    • Stock up on holiday baking supplies.  We love to bake cookies, candies, and other treats at Christmas time.  We really enjoy taking those treats to neighbors and widowed family members.  I stock up on things like sugar, flour, powdered sugar, chocolate, eggs, butter, sprinkles, and more so when we want to start baking, we already have the ingredients.
    • Create our Christmas Card and annual letter.  I love sending {and receiving} photo cards at Christmas.  I either take a photo for the card, or start looking through our photos to start creating our Christmas card.  I am a bit selective {ok, ok, I am picky!} about the photo card, so I spend a lot of time trying out different cards to find that perfect card!  I also start our annual Christmas letter for family and friends.  I love writing them, but I admit to erasing and re~writing it over and over until I am satisfied with it.  So I start it now and then I have time to "tweek" it before it goes out with the cards.
    • Plan Christmas and Christmas Eve dinner.  We have a tradition on Christmas eve, and I pretty much make the same thing for Christmas dinner, but I start thinking about who is coming and what I will need.  This way I will have everything ahead of time and I can stay out of the grocery stores right before Christmas {have you ever been to the store right before Christmas?  It is crazy!}.
    • Plan for devotions and our family service.  We are going to do a Jesse tree this year for family devotions.  We also started {what I hope will be a tradition} a family Christmas Eve Worship last year.  I just want to make sure I have everything ready for both of these ahead of time so we all can enjoy them.
    • Focus on the real reason for the holiday!  That crazy, chaotic Christmas taught me that what I really want during this season is to focus on that tiny baby and what his birth means to me.  This is the time of year I just want to shut everything off {except the music of course!}, snuggle with my family in the glow of our tree, and savor every minute! 
    Just a little planning ahead of time makes for a great Christmas!  I just realized that one of the kiddo's turned off the Christmas music~time to put it back on!!

    Worth Rubies~A Proverbs 31 Woman

     I have wanted to do a series on the Proverbs 31 woman for some time now.  Actually, what Proverbs 31 has meant to me as a wife and mother.  It wasn't until I really read through {not just read, but read through} Proverbs 31 did I realize this is actually an instruction manual for women.

    The Proverbs 31 woman has it all together.  She is perfect in every way.  Really, she is far more than you or I could ever achieve to be.  But while I know that I will never be this perfect woman, I love that God gives us a guideline in His word of what he wants for us to be. 

    I want to work through Proverbs 31:10~31 with you.  I want US to become the wives and mothers God intends for us to be.  Some area's are easy to work with.  Others are not so much.  Together, I know that we can do it!

    So, won't you join me each week as we study another area in our Proverbs 31 walk?  I am excited to take this journey with you, not because I have all the answers or that I am already a great wife and mother {I am seriously flawed more than you know!!}.  I'll be working on each area right along with you!  Because we want to make the most of our motherhood and our wifehood {seriously, is that even a word?!}.  We want to be the women God had planned all along for us to be!

    Pray For Kaidon~A Lilla Rose Fundraiser

    Kaidon is a 10 year old little boy from my area who was diagnosed with Lyme's Disease in August.  He has been hospitalized since then and is on the road to recovery.  He has come a long way since he was diagnosed.  He still can not walk, but with daily therapy, he is getting stronger every day.  His family is hoping to bring him home at the end of the month.

    To help his family with their expenses I am hosting an online Lilla Rose party.  Lilla Rose has beautiful hair jewelry including Flexi Clips, bobby pins, headbands and more.  They also carry badge clips perfect for any occupation. 

    October Flexi of the Month

    Won't you consider helping this family out.  If you've been thinking about purchasing a Flexi Clip or any other item, now would be a great time to do it.  I am donating 40% of all proceeds to this family.  Plus, if you place an order of $45, you'll receive a coupon for a FREE flexi clip {$16 value!}.  Go to my Lilla Rose website, register, and start shopping!

    Join me in blessing this family with this fundraiser!

    How This Christmas Is Free

    {affiliate links included~see disclosure}

    December is on it's way and so is Christmas!!  Christmas is my favorite time of the year!  One thing I like just as much is saving money.  I want to enjoy the Christmas season without spending lots of money.  I've found a few ways over the years that have helped me do just that!

    Swagbucks:  Swagbucks is a search engine that you use just as you would use Google or Yahoo.  The only difference is that you can earn "Swagbucks" each time you search something online.  You can then use these bucks to get prizes.  My favorite prizes are gift cards to Amazon or money deposited into my Paypal account.  I have then used that money to buy presents~free presents!  If you use the search engine often, the points just keep coming and coming!  This is one of the easiest ways to make a few bucks!  Even our kids get excited about winning Swagbucks!  If you haven't signed up yet, you really need to get started!  Register HERE and earn 30 Swagbucks just for signing up!

    Pampers Gifts to Grow:   I don't use disposable diapers or training pants anymore, but this is a great resource for those of you who do.  There are codes on each of the packages of Pampers diapers, training pants, and wipes, and after creating an account, just enter your codes for points to be added to your account.  I have used those points over the years to "purchase" gifts for our children.  There is no charge for shipping, so these gifts were entirely free!  Also, Freebies 4 Mom is a great resource for promotional codes.

    National Consumer Panel:  National Consumer Panel (NCP) is a program where you track your purchases via a scanner they provide and then transmit them to NCP by phone.  Each time you transmit your purchases you will earn points.  You will also earn points for answering surveys.  You then use those points to "purchase" gifts from their catalog.  All your equipment is provided by the company, and the gifts are also shipped free.  I've saved my points for the past year or so, and we are using them this Christmas for free gifts!  Check out the NCP website to see if they are accepting applications from your area.

    Inbox Dollars:   You will get paid to read e-mails, watch advertiser's video's, and take surveys.  It isn't much money and won't make you rich by any means, but you do have the possibility of making a bit through out the year with this company.  They also have coupons that you can print out and you'll get another 10 cents added to your account for every coupon redeemed.  There are various other ways to earn money, and after your account reaches $30, you can request a check.  I have never had a problem with them over the past 5 years~I've always gotten the money credited to my account, and have received and cashed the checks without problem.  I saved the money and purchased gifts with it.  Every little bit helps!  Go HERE to sign up and receive a $5 sign on bonus!

    My PointsMy points is another opportunity to receive gift cards.  You get e~mails from the company, click on them and points are added to your account.  You can also answer surveys, install a toolbar on your computer, and do online shopping through this company.  You'll get around 5 points for each e~mail you click on, but again, they all add up!!

    You probably won't be able to get free gifts for everyone on your list, but it is a great start.  See what you can get for free this year!

    The Stockpile Challenge~~How Is It Going?

    This summer I started a stockpile challenge.  The goal is to start stocking up on items that we regularly use using a small weekly budget and combining coupons with sales to get the lowest price on products. 

    I have not done this on a weekly basis, but I have found some great deals and gotten a good start on my stockpile.  This is what I bought at Walgreens recently for less than $10....

    Kleenex tissues ~~ on sale for 88 cents each, added a coupon making them around 75 cents each.
    Lever soap ~~ on sale buy one get one free, added 2 coupons {Walgreens lets you use coupons even if you will be getting the product for free before coupon!}...received both for pennies!
    Bic razors ~~on sale buy one get one free, added 2 coupons, received both for less than $1!
    Reach toothbrush ~~ on sale for $2.99, received a RR {register reward} for $2, had coupon for $1 off, making this free!
    Laudry detergent ~~on sale buy one get two free, added 2 coupons to make them around $1 for all three!

    I paid around $8 for the above items and had a $2 RR to use next time!

    Here's my updated stockpile list...
    toilet paper~7 rolls per week =168 rolls
    tissues~3 boxes per month =18 {have 6 on hand}

    feminine supplies~1 box tampons and 1 box pads =6 boxes of each {have 2 boxes of pads on hand}
    toothpaste~2 tubes per month =12 {have 2 tubes on hand}
    Dixie cups~1 box per month =6 {have 2 boxes on hand}
    contact lens solution~1 bottle per month =6
    deodorant~4 per month =24 {have 2 on hand}
    toothbrushes~7 per month =42 {have 9 on hand}
    liquid hand soap~we make ours last longer so 2 large refill bottles should last about a year.
    dish soap~1 bottle per month =6 {have 4 on hand}
    dishwasher detergent~we make our own and I try to stock up on the ingredients when they go on sale.
    shampoo~3 bottles per month =18
    conditioner~4 bottles per month =24  {remember I make our own fabric softner with conditioner}
    bath soap~3 bars per month =18 {have 4 on hand]
    bathroom cleaner~2 cans per month =12
    laundry detergent~I usually make my own, but if there is a really good sale that I can add a coupon to, I may consider getting it. {have 3 on hand}
    It is great to stock up on items when I can get them at the lowest price.  How are you doing on your stockpile?

    Having just turned 18, Grace Trey aspires to more than just singing at her church where her father, a former pop star, is the worship leader. So, with the help of Mossy, her dad's former manager, Grace records a cover version of her dad's old Top-10 hit, runs off to Los Angeles, and begins to taste the kind of stardom she's always dreamed about.
    Yet with each rung of the ladder she climbs, Grace feels more and more pressure to compromise her values, further straining her relationship with her parents. Will everything she experiences lead her to reject her faith… or rediscover it?
    Grace Unplugged opens in theaters October 4 and is “Family Approved” by the Dove Foundation.
