Making the Switch to Natural Make-Up

Making the Switch to Natural Make-Up and my Simple Natural Make-Up Routine The Humbled Homemaker

I say that making the switch to natural make-up has been a final frontier of sorts in my natural living journey. Transitioning to eating better, using non-toxic cleaning supplies and skincare products and just leading a greener lifestyle all came first. But the make-up? I always thought I wouldn't be able to afford natural make-up, and, besides, I really don't wear a ton of make-up anyway. In the very back of my head, though, I knew I would want to make the switch to natural make-up one … [Read more...]

What Dr. Quinn Taught Me About Being a Humbled Homemaker

What Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman Taught Me About Being a Humbled Homemaker

One of my favorite TV shows to watch during my teen years was Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Perhaps it was the pioneer setting (much like my beloved Little House on the Prairie). Perhaps it was the love story--with season after season of longing glances--between Michaela and Sully. Or perhaps it was Dr. Mike's sheer determination to raise her three adopted children to the best of her ability while earning the respect of the townspeople--whom she sought to doctor despite the fact that she … [Read more...]

7 Ideas for a Resurrection-Focused Easter Basket {+ a Giveaway & a Freebie!}

7 Ideas for a Resurrection-Focused Easter Basket The Humbled Homemaker

Easter baskets were a rarity among my childhood home. And I don't feel like I "missed out" at all. I never believed in the Easter Bunny, and as long as I can remember I knew that Easter was the celebration of Christ's resurrection. My parents did give us Easter treats; they just happened to wait until the grocery stores slashed the prices of those treats. A favorite memory is scouring the clearance carts for Reese eggs and bunny-shaped Sweet Tarts--the day after Easter. But in my … [Read more...]

Weekend Links at The Humbled Homemaker

This week was crazy. And when I say crazy, I mean CRAAAAAAAAAAAZY! I didn't want to announce it on the blog or social media because, well, that's like asking for someone to break in my house, but my husband was gone the entire week on a mission trip to Cuba. I know lots of wives stay at home with their children while their husbands travel all the time. I don't. I'm not used to it, and my kids aren't used to it...and it was just plain rough. I don't think I've ever seen my girls … [Read more...]

We are in Charge of our Attitudes

Attitudes The Humbled Homemaker

When I was 19, one of my childhood friends was killed instantly in a car wreck. It was my freshman year in college--her senior year in high school. She was only 17. The weeks that followed saw my child-like faith being truly tested for the first time. Why did this happen? Where is she now? Do I truly believe in heaven and hell and eternity? If Jesus is really in my heart, then why don't I feel Him? From the other side of that tumultuous inner battle emerged a young woman whose faith … [Read more...]

Weekend Links & an Update

Weekend Links at The Humbled Homemaker

If you've been reading for a while, you might remember my old monthly feature "Reads & Recipes." In these posts, I shared blog posts, books, eBooks, etc. that I had read the previous month, as well as recipes I had tried. I gave that up a while back because I couldn't keep up with it. For one, I don't necessarily try a new recipe every single month, and I also discovered that there were way too many links I wanted to share! Hence, I'm beginning an occasional "Weekend Links" post. My … [Read more...]
