I have written about many things from food, tips on living a healthy … [Read more...]

Our New Contributing Writers!


Merry Christmas to all! It has been very quiet around here (well, around CMB, not my personal life!) I hope to get caught up and back in the swing of things soon - but hey, we can all use a break and I believe the Holidays  is just the time to do that! Later this week you can look forward to a post with some of our Christmas/Birthday pics (my youngest turned 1 year old on Christmas Eve!) On … [Read more...]

How an Elimination Diet cured my daughter’s eczema and gastrointestinal tract

karli with blanket

  Most of you have been with me on this journey but I have been vague about why and how I started this diet. And even more so about the results. Here is the full story: Karli was born on Christmas Eve last year. She was born at just over 6 pounds, but was a mere 5.6 pounds when I brought her home from the hospital. I stress “I” because my husband was deployed during her birth, another … [Read more...]

Lord, Teach us to Pray, Part 3

Lord Teach Us to Pray

If you are new to the Series read "Lord, Teach Us to Pray, Part 1" and Part 2. I do hope you "did your homework" (Memorized the Lord's prayer) if you had not already done so!

“For I know the plans I have for you…”

Lord, Teach Us to Pray – Part 2

Lord Teach Us to Pray

If you are new to the Series read "Lord, Teach Us to Pray, Part 1" and I do hope you "did your homework" (Memorized the Lord's prayer) if you had not already done so! The Six Sections of the Lord's Prayer The Lord's prayer can be nicely broken down into six portions. By looking at each of these portions, we are able to see how God intends us to start our prayers, and how our prayers should move … [Read more...]

“Lord, Teach Us to Pray”

Lord Teach Us to Pray

Prayer is a very powerful thing. It is something I take for granted. I hate to point the finger, but you probably take it for granted too. The Lord is there here. We can use our "life line" anytime we want, and yet, we sometimes only use it when we need it. Why not talk to God? Close your eyes, bow your head and thank God for being such an amazing God. For being your Savior. For loving your … [Read more...]
