God is Good ....All the Time

As a child of God, I am reminded that he is good all the time. Even if we don't realize it at that moment.

It's so important to take a step back, out of your own shoes to see the beauty in things. It's all around us. The simple dandelion flower or the black ant that is working it's way across your driveway.

Here at our home we have acorns starting to fall off the trees now and the girls are just amazed at them. They study them, pretend they are little people with hats so simple that God has created can entertain them for nearly 30 mins!

Believing for God to work: I recently (and by recently I mean 7 months ago) left my church where I was worshiping and in fellowship with others for about 3 years. The church got a little too "political" for my taste and I left my Sunday School teaching "post" along with the church all together. What surprises me, still, is the lack of outreach that i have received. When I attend the church I was friends with nearly everyone. Getting together, going out, attending conferences etc. Now that I no longer attend there, I hear from not 1 person at all. It makes me sad. I did try to keep in contact with a few but those relationships seemed strained with me not being there anymore. This is not the 1st time it has happened to me. What gives? Why are people sooo supportive and friendly when you are seeing them all the time but as soon as you drop off the radar so to speak, you hear nothing? I have tried several other churches in my area, but nothing seems to be a good fit. I am praying about it a lot and I know that i don't NEED a church but I WANT to be a part of a church and what it offers to my family. I need some renewing of my faith that I will find something soon. I even thought about starting up my own church and had two people interested, but they backed out. 8( I guess my ramblings need to come to an end and I have to get on with some lesson plans with the kiddies...

Thanks all for listening! Remember - God is Good - All the Time!'

I just wanted to give you a heads up on a book I read when something similar happened to me at my former church. I found this book, "So You Don't Want To Go To Church Anymore" at my local library and reading it really clarified so many things ( I highly recommend reading it...and don't be misled by the title; it still applies to those people who do desire to attend church. ;)

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  

I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.

Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey

The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)

It's cute, to the point and shows her style.

Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
