The home is a seminary of infinite importance. It is important because it is universal, and because the education it bestows gives color to the whole texture of life. The things said there give bias to character far more than do sermons, lectures, newspapers, and book. No other teachers have acknowledged the divine right to instruct children that is granted without challenge to parents. The foundation of our national life is in their hands. They can make it send forth waters bitter or sweet, for the death or the healing of the people. The smallest bit of opinion sown in the minds of children in private life later issue forth to the world and become its public opinions, for nations are gathered out of nurseries.~ The Golden Gems of Life

Cold and Flu Natural Remedies from the Kitchen

January 11, 2013 | Author:

From The Penny Pantry:

Cold and Flu season is no fun.  It seems like everyone is hacking and coughing.  I want to wear a hazmat suit when I am out in public to protect myself against the swarm of flu bugs in the air.

If or when the cold and flu catch up to me, I like to use my kitchen as the greatest weapon to combat the plague’s ugliness.

In addition using herbs, tinctures, infusions and oils, I like to use food to kick start and support the body’s natural immune system with foods as well.  One way I do this is by cooking cold and flu fighting foods.  Top on my list:

The Need to Breed

January 9, 2013 | Author:

Here is a great post from Get Along Home that bluntly states an obvious truth that our short sighted, “me centered” modern society seems to be oblivious to:

We don’t seem to understand (and by “we”, I mean “not me”) that children are a literal investment. You have to put in the work to get the payoff. You can’t contribute no people to the future and then expect that future to go well for you any more than you can put zero dollars into your 401K and expect it to be there when you’re ready to retire. I hate to have to spell all this out, because a) it feels like talking down to people and b) it’s not even all that interesting to think about, but apparently there is a large number of people of reproductive age who actually need these bald facts pointed out to them before it is too late for them to decide to procreate for their own good.

The Hand That Rocks the Cradle

Blessings on the hand of women!
Angels guard its strength and grace,
In the palace, cottage, hovel,
Oh, no matter where the place;
Would that never storms assailed it,
Rainbows ever gently curled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

Infancy’s the tender fountain,
Power may with beauty flow,
Mother’s first to guide the streamlets,
From them souls unresting grow –
Grow on for the good or evil,
Sunshine streamed or evil hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

Woman, how divine your mission
Here upon our natal sod!
Keep, oh, keep the young heart open
Always to the breath of God!
All true trophies of the ages
Are from mother-love impearled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

Blessings on the hand of women!
Fathers, sons, and daughters cry,
And the sacred song is mingled
With the worship in the sky –
Mingles where no tempest darkens,
Rainbows evermore are hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

William Ross Wallace

Happy Mothers Day!

Watch “Children Are a Blessing” for Free During the Month of April!

April 17, 2012 | Author:

Join the Moore family in this timely documentary as they briefly expose the evil history of the birth control movement on the 50th anniversary of “the pill.”  Listen as they transparently share their testimony of how God, in His grace and mercy, opened their eyes in spite of their own sinful beginning. Be encouraged as they casually answer questions often posed to large families. Then, experience the joy of Biblical family life as they welcome their tenth child into their home. Most of all, be inspired to look to the Word of God for answers to everything in life, but specifically to see that Children are a Blessing.

During the month of April you can watch this entire film (a semi-finalist in the San Antonio Christian Film Festival) online for free at Moore Family Films!

We’re still here!

April 13, 2012 | Author:

It has been almost four months since my last update but we are still alive and kicking! Our precious new baby boy (Child # 8) arrived in January bringing us to an even four boys and four girls; ages 11 to almost 3 months :-) Life has been even more blessedly busy and pretty much anything beyond survival and laundry and survival OF laundry has been pushed to a very crowded back burner. We are settling in to a bit of a routine though ( Using “routine” rather loosely there…) and I hope to be back to posting again a little more frequently as I’m able.  “Hope” and “little” likely being the key words…;-).  However, that is quite alright by me. These wonderful, crazy days of real life are so full and go by so quickly, the virtual world will have to wait it’s turn. :-) A new twist on the classic poem sums it up:

Blogging and posting can wait ’till tomorrow,
For babies grow up, we’ve learned to our sorrow.
So I’m logging out, Facebook; Laptop go to sleep,
I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.

Thanks for your patience!
