This morning I made Steel Cut Oats Cereal for Breakfast.
I also baked Raspberry Muffins, and A batch of Cinnamon Rolls made from Spelt and Red Wheat with Golden Flax Seeds. The beauty of cooking with whole grains is truly manifested in the “live food” aspect of the food. If I were to take the Oat Groats out in the garden and plant them, they would grow! The “seed” portion of the grain is in tact until it is cut, which is why store bought Steel Cut Oats are mostly a waste of money. Although steel cut oats are perhaps one of the best things you can purchase in the cereal isle of the grocery store, any time a seed is cut in half, within…

61% of all Hospitalizations are in some form or fashion tied to Childbirth. The money generated by Birth is “what keeps the lights on” at the hospital. So, when we federalize medicine we are literally Socializing Birth. Collectivist Birth is messy, rationed, focused on the greater good and does not have the time or resources to cater to the individual needs of Mothers and Babies.
I love Family Birth because it is solely focused on the individual needs of the Mother, Baby, and Family at large. When a mother births in her own space, she has the autonomy to have it be about her needs, her family, and her agenda and goals rather than someone or something outside of her home.
Taking personal responsibility for Childbirth will free families from the balkanized mess that is going to descend upon the American Family these next few decades. Jenny HatchRead More »
Married for almost 17yrs I’m a mom of 7 great kids, 6 who walk and 1 who flies, ages 15 years to 16 months. I’ve had a few varieties of birthing experiences and alternative healthcare. I love simple natural living and sharing about the wonderful things God has provided that SUPPORTS the mind, body, spirit and environment. I have a little mantra, “Life is to short to hang out with emotional chickens”…dig deep and get real, WAKE -UP to who you REALLY are and take the COURAGE to Live Your Truth!!
I’m ALWAYS learning!!! I’m currently delving into Energy Medicine, a phenomenally FAST way to heal emotionally and spiritually!! I’m growing a life coaching business where I facilitate others to awaken to their own healing and personal answers to life. We are all powerful co-Creators with the Universe and everyone has a message and purpose to share with those around them.
I have been planning to write this post for some time now, years it feels like, and someday I plan to encapsulate these thoughts into a book written for young women. For now, I’ll try to take the mishmash of my thoughts and attempt to get something readable into the blogosphere.
I have spent untold hours reading commentary on economics these past few decades (Bar none fav author is Thomas Sowell). And with the upsurge in concerns about the economy, it feels like so many of my favorite authors have been waxing far more eloquent than I with conservative ideas for fixing the broken parts of the American Economy.

“THERE is a dreaded procedure routinely performed on expectant mothers that makes most cringe and fear their birth experience. It’s called an episiotomy. An episiotomy is a procedure in which a surgical incision is made in the tissues of the birth canal just before the baby’s head is born. This cut causes trauma to the woman’s genital region, requires stitches after the birth, and is a matter that is considered a violation of the woman’s human rights amongst natural childbirth advocates.
The World Health Organization (WHO) states, “Limiting the use of episiotomy to strict indications has a number of benefits: less…trauma, less need for suturing and fewer complications…. Routine episiotomy, or liberal use of episiotomy, is unfortunately very common, both in under-resourced settings and in some developed countries….There are…strong reasons to counteract the overuse of episiotomy…”*
Paul found a recipe online for Laundry Soap and made a few batches of it during the summer. Only one batch exploded in our basement when he added in too much washing soda. The soap did not get our clothes as clean as our regular laundry soap, so we tucked the ingredients away and plan to use it on an “as needed” basis.
I purchased a hand soap kit from Hobby Lobby last summer and promptly lost it. Paul found it a few weeks ago when he cleaned the basement storage room.
I made up a batch of soap and videotaped it. (And yes, you don’t see me in the video because I was wearing my Pajamas) Blogging Moms are notorious for doing our internet work in underwear and PJ’s.
The kit made twenty small bars of soap. Then I purchased two more kits and made some Rose Oil soap and included the petals from a dozen red roses.
My daughters will be heading back to school in a few days and it was so fun to have Shelly come ask me if she could take some of my soap back with her. I happily handed her half a dozen bars.
This was a fun project. And except for the dishwasher exploding with an overwhelm of bubbles when I tossed my double boiler in without scraping the hardened soap, relatively painles, and a new way to create lucious soap for just a few dollars.
I taught my class last saturday here in our home. It was extremely stressful attempting to incorporate the multimedia webinar stream on the web, and so I was grateful that the only person who attended was my friend Helen. If I had had a houseful of strangers show up to be taught the fundamentals of Food Storage my head might have exploded. Ben had a meltdown just before class started and was refusing to leave with his Father, who had been asked to keep the nine year old and the dog busy for two hours while I taped, needless to say I was a frazzled mess when the class started, but I gave it my best shot.
What do Polysorbate 80 and Octoxynol 10 have in common? They both cause infertility and they are both in many vaccines. November 24, 2011
“According to the California Teratogen Information Service (CTIS) Pregnancy Health Information Line, there are many factors that can cause a man to be infertile and as around half of all infertility cases result from the man, it is important to properly study the causes.
Previous studies have found that radiation and electromagnetic radiation from cell phones and computers have been linked to infertility or sub-fertility as well as chemicals, including heavy metals and solvents, heat and pressure (such as hot baths and tight underwear), environmental pollution, cigarette smoking and sexually transmitted diseases.
But in their summary of different causes of infertility, they forgot one: vaccines.
Fertility has been declining rapidly since the 1950s in all countries of the world and the start of the change coincided with the introduction of the first mass vaccination programs. For instance, in the UK in 1947, a mass DPT vaccine campaign was initiated and in 1958, the first polio and diphtheria vaccines were brought in on a mass scale for all people under 15 years old.”
