Couldn't wait for you all to see what Day 4 has in store for us all!




Helping Christian parents teach their kids about God. 
(They had me at HELLO!)

In their own words...

The ability to learn and read are God-given gifts that awaken the mind, open the heart, and nourish the soul. We give thanks for our blessings and commit our corporation to giving back from the start as a sign of our gratitude.
We will be sharing a love of reading and the gift of literacy to children in need by donating books and a portion of our earnings to nonprofit organizations near our home in Austin, Texas, throughout the United States, and across the world.
Powerful stuff!  

If you are not yet familiar with the books from Graham Blanchard, you should be!  These are books that not only help your child but you as a parent, be a better parent in teaching your children about God.  I love their method of learning and teaching - Learn Absorb and Praise.  

The Jesus Shows Me board book is perfect for the little hands that love to sit and read.  So easy for parents or caregivers to relay the information to their little ones. 


You can connect with Graham Blanchard at their blog, website, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Christian Novels
Enjoy clean and character-building Christian novels that will keep the whole family engaged for hours.


Fifteen-year-old Jessie Rivera is living every teenager’s nightmare. Her widowed mom has married a man who wears his heavy Christian values like his sergeant’s stripes – on both sleeves.
Glenn Sparrow is persistent, immovable, and not afraid to be firm. Worse than that, he’s loving, kind – even fun – and he has Chris, Moe, and Katie completely won over.
But Jessie is determined that she won’t be won over, or give up her “freedom” without a fight. She knows what she wants, and it isn’t what they’ve got.
Or is it?
Discover the answer when you read The Sparrow Found A House, a fast-paced, often humorous look into the lives of the four Rivera siblings, their parents, and their friends. As outward changes transform the family, the kids come face-to-face with the changes needed in their own individual hearts and lives.
Through it all, the reader is not only entertained, but enriched by biblical truths expressed in the lives of believable characters.
This is a realistic, contemporary story intended for young adults and up, but entirely suitable for all ages. It is a particularly good choice for home-educated readers, as homeschooling plays a major role in the story.
I am so happy to tell you friends, that you can download your own E-copy of The Sparrow Found a House HERE! (FOR FREE!)

I received a coy of The Sparrow Found a House and I can tell you my friends, this is MUST read for any preteen or teen. I loved it!  I really got into the book often drifting off in my mind to the "scene" as if it were a movie. Well written and really touches you.  You can relate to the characters and really see how a family unit comes together.  It would be an excellent book for parents and children to read together!

You can connect with Jason McIntire (the Author) HERE at the Elisha Press website.  They also have a blog that you can catch up on HERE!


Disclosure: I received the products mentioned to review. Regardless, I only recommend products I feel would benefit my followers. All opinions are my own and those of my family. Please see my full disclosure policy at the end of this page.

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 …

Shining the Spotlight

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!�…
