Truth in the Tinsel helps little children understand the concept of Christmas from a Biblical perspective.

Celebrate the Season by finding the Truth in the Tinsel


Several years ago, when my big kids were still little kids (*sniff, sniff*) I wanted to do something meaningful for the Christmas season. They were still too small to do big kid stuff, so I needed to find something that we could do at home. I stumbled on it by accident, but it has been one of the best Christmas…

How Old is Too Old To Go Trick or Treating?

How Old is Too Old to Go Trick or Treating?


One of my favorite parts of Halloween is seeing all the kids in their costumes. I love the homemade ones, because they show a lot of creativity and ingenuity! It’s so much fun to take your kids Trick or Treating. Running through the neighborhood squealing as they knock on all the doors and get candy is so enjoyable for those…

How to Stay Safe When Kids are Trick or Treating


If your kids are anything like mine, they’d decided on this year’s Halloween Trick or Treating costume before Halloween had officially started last year. If your kids aren’t like mine, can we switch? Just kidding. This post contains affiliate links, which means if you purchase through them, I’ll get a small kick-back. Be assured, I only recommend products or services…

How to Get Ready for the Day in Just Five Minutes


So last week, I did a thing. It wasn’t a huge thing, but it was something different than I’ve ever done before. I made a Youtube video. Now, lots of people have made Youtube videos before, but I haven’t really. Especially one of me half-dressed. Ok, this isn’t a naughty video (whew!) but I’m showing more shoulder than I usually…

How We Packed and Moved Our Family of 7 in Just One Week


So…it’s been pretty quiet around the blog lately because I’ve been a little preoccupied. Sorry about that. Life, you know. Actually, life amplified. We moved this past weekend, out of one rental house into another, closer to where we do everything in life. As a family, we’ve moved almost more times than I can count. Between my husband’s jobs and…

I’m writing an eBook!


Guys, I have had a blast writing on the blog for the past almost five months. (What?!?! Has it been that long?!?) I have learned so much and gotten so far in my blogging and social media knowledge. I mean, there is so much I know that I didn’t even know was a thing prior to October 2016. I’ve written…

I read romance novels...that doesn't make me a bad person!

Why I Read Romance Novels


My husband laughs when I bring home romance novels from the library with the word “Rogue”, “Rake” or “Duke” in the title. (Bonus points if it has all three!) He always wonders where the men’s shirts went, or what happened to all the buttons. After all, surely not every man in Victorian England went around half naked! This post contains…

Does anyone even clip coupons anymore? With Groupon Coupons, you can stop now! (But still get the savings!)

Who Clips Coupons Anymore, Anyway?


Anyone here ever tried to clip coupons? A few years ago, I watched the show on TLC, Extreme Couponers. These ladies (and some men!) clipped coupons for hours and hours (although sometimes they claimed they could do it really quickly) and then went to the store and bought up every single item that they had coupons for. It was awe-inspiring…

I Hate Cleaning my House – But Not as Much as I Used To! (FREE Printable Cleaning Schedule!)


I don’t know about you ladies, but cleaning is definitely not on my Top Ten list of things I love to do. It’s actually not even in my Top Twenty. Hmm…it’s not in my top anything. Because I don’t love to clean, I can’t wait to get that feeling before I start. I have to clean whether I want to…
