Natural Hair Care Products

MM Raw 

As most of you know I am very passionate about what products we use in our homes and put on our bodies and in the past year thanks to Dan I found a great Natural Hair Care Products company that makes the greatest products.  I can't say enough about their shampoos and conditioners.

Aravis has developed quite a gift for an eye behind the lens of a camera. I personally want to thank her for all the inspirational header photos we posted this past year on our family blog.

Thank you!

Is Your Dishwasher Detergent Safe?

Did you know that dishwasher detergents like Cascade, are made with cheap ingredients like chlorine, phosphates and other caustic substances? My point proven by the childproof caps and the warning label to call 911 IMMEDIATELY if ingested!

Did you know that phosphates are terrible for our environment that is why they are banned from all laundry detergents? Did you know 1lb of phosphates creates 300 - 700lbs of algae? When these phosphates enter our waterway systems they choke out the oxygen which can really throw our eco-system off! They really need to have a law where these are also banned from dishwasher detergents!

Did you know that when you open your dishwasher, the steam that rises out after a load of dishes is washed is actually chlorine gas? Did you know that the chlorine gas from just one load of dishes will stay in the air in your home for up to ONE year? Think about that! How many loads does the average home do each week? 5 - 10?

Did you know that chlorine gas can be a trigger for asthma attacks? Did you know that headaches, dizziness and fatigue are just a few of the other symptoms many people experience after running their dishwashers?

Did you know there is a safer alternative for you, your home and the environment that contains *no* chlorine, phosphates or caustic ingredients? It is so safe that there is no need for childproof caps. The patented dishwasher detergent our family now uses is not only safe but is very economical in price and it gets the job done without any water spots! Please let us know if you are interested in becoming a customer.

Healing Prayer at Bedtime

Lord Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit, go back into my memory as I sleep.
Every hurt that has ever been done to me, heal that hurt.
Every hurt that I have ever caused another person, heal that hurt.
All the relationships that have been damaged in my whole life that I am not aware of, heal those relationships.
But, Lord, if there is anything that I need to do;
If I need to go to a person because he or she is still suffering from my hand,
Bring to my awareness that person, I choose to forgive and I ask to be forgiven.
Remove whatever bitterness may be in my heart, Lord, and fill the empty spaces with your love.
Amen.

Purity Prayer

This beautiful prayer was given to us by a dear Catholic friend. She recommended we pray it every morning when we wake up and every evening before we go to bed.... God Bless!
Dear Blessed Mother, I give my soul to your care. Let me always remember to be pure in thought, word and action. Protect my mind and my will so that all my thoughts and desires will be pleasing to God.
Hail Mary full of grace......
Dear Blessed Mother I give my heart to your care. May I love you with all my heart. Help me always to love my neighbor. And help me avoid friends who might lead me away from Jesus.
Hail Mary full of grace.....
Dear Blessed Mother, I give my body to your care. May I always be modest & pure in how I dress. Let me never offend God against the virture of purity.
Hail Mary full of grace....
