Redeeming Beauty Mineral Make Up Review and GIVEAWAY!

By | January 21, 2013

The Problem Remember when it was just the two of you?  All those extra little things you Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Managing Your “Cycle” Naturally

By | March 26, 2012

Image by daveynin Prior to getting pregnant for the first time, I used to buy and use regular tampons.  And I had the “normal” cramps and pain and irritability and bloating and all the fun stuff that goes along with that time of the month.  So fun, right?

Tracking Your Fertility Signs

By | February 3, 2012

Image by lulumon athletica Recently, several of my readers have been asking me about women’s health issues — things like fertility, pregnancy, PCOS, balancing their hormones, etc.  It’s a big issue.  Women don’t have a lot of truthful information about their health.  Western medicine doesn’t understand how heavily hormones play into everything that happens with Read More

Feminism Meets Biblical Womanhood

By | December 21, 2011

Image by Jodi Womack Recently I was reading an article by Dr. Lissa Rankin, regarding her new book, What’s Up Down There: Questions You’d Only Ask Your Gynecologist if She Was Your Best Friend.  She’s been on a promotional tour, and has run into a rather ridiculous issue: the word “vagina” is ‘too saucy’ to Read More
