Back on the list (again).....it's all in HIS time..

So in January, I posted this...putting myself back on the list....well now it's on the verge of April and I have fallen to the bottom (again)...sigh...not a pity party here...just a realization that there are SO many other things that take priority over myself.

I have not had a professional haircut in almost 3 years, a pedi and mani - over a year, a massage - over 2 years....a day to myself - 1 time in 3 years.....I have not had the opportunity to update the scrapbooks in I don't know how long....

However, I Am in the Weight watchers On Line program and finding myself losing weight each week....my children and husband are happy and healthy which is a testament to my "job", we have a beautiful home to live in which is also a testament to my works.

Please don't misread this blog post...I do love taking care of my husband, home, family, homeschooling etc...but I must find time for ME...you have heard the phrases "Happy Wife, Happy Life"...."If momma ain't happy, no one is happy."  I can go on....

I turn to the bible for my encouragement today....it's simple.....

Philippians 4;19 tells us "And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. "

Reading this simple verse reassures me that my needs will be met, just in HIS time, not in mine....

I will be praying about this and hoping that you pray with me, for yourself and me!  For this is the season!

This season can be so hard. You are so right though.. God provides everything we need.. in his timing. I find myself getting the I wants or I needs.. but if I stop and pray I find that I have everything I need or God surprises me/us with something we need/want.

I think this is one of the hardest things about homeschooling. Being a mom takes a lot of time itself, but once you add in homeschooling, it's so much more. I've struggled with this same thing for so long. If I do have a little free time, I find myself lesson planning. I stay up way too late to have a little free time to read, but then I'm exhausted when I have to get up. I thought it would get easier as the kids got older, but now all the school stuff I need to do seems to take longer.

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 ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
