I was blessed to get this magazine, it came on one of those busy days last week when I barely had time to think! It is so full of great articles, I have not had time to read and contemplate each one totally yet.
<p> One thing I love about TEACH is it is not something that makes you feel like you can never attain. Instead  you feel like, "Others have been there too and here is what i can do to fix the problem!" This issue, the theme was "The Art of homemaking", which was the title of one of my favorite books growing up! <p> Probably my favorite article was in the "Swinging on the back porch" article, by Marilyn Boyer  (a mother of 14, lest you think she does not know what she is talking about!) She speaks about how mothering is a full time job, it is not easy,  and we cannot do it all ourselves. Lately, I have felt this many times, the sort of panic when you realize that you cannot do it all!  She talks about how to train your children to help you and to be their coach.
She starts with something simple, like shoes, which is something frustrates me. If everyone has 2-3 pairs of shoes and there are 6 of us that is 18 shoes laying around!  Removing clutter, making lists, and finding time for bible study are all part of this article. It is so good, I am going to re-read it and start implementing it! I figure a mom of 14, well, it has to have worked for her by now! <p> In A apple a day, there was tips on homemade beauty, including a Peppermint polish for your feet! I am so excited to try this as it says it really helps your feet and is all natural stuff that is not expensive to buy to make it! There is a recipe for vanilla Body butter and bath salts too! It is written by Jessie Hawkins at Vintage Remedies. <p>
Anyhow, I am blessed again to get this magazine and I hope that some of you check it out and subscribe! it is like a breath of fresh air in your mailbox!
<p> If you subscribe too for two years you get a bunch of free gifts too!
