I missed your free offer of “How to Manage Your Mouth – A 30 Day Wholesome Talk Challenge [3]“. Can I still get it free?

I will be offering this Kindle eBook free again soon. Check here, because that’s where I’ll be announcing when you can get it free.

I am working on a children’s version of The 30 Day Wholesome Talk Challenge, and when that is ready to be published, you’ll be able to snag the original version free.

Amazon only allows 3 days of giving away the book for free, so when you see it’s free, be sure to act fast before it goes back to full price.

How do you stay fit?

I am almost 47 years old and have never in my life liked exercise. Honestly, with all the shoveling out hen houses [4], jumping on the trampoline with the kids [5], and cleaning out from under beds, I feel like I am doing fine in the physical activity department.

When we got new insurance a couple of years ago, I had a complete blood work analysis done, and all my “levels” came back in the healthy range.

I try to eat foods still in their original forms. Vegetables, fruits, and meat. But you know I love gravy [6]!

I stay a healthy weight (according to doctor’s charts) by only eating when I am truly hungry. This means if there is a pan of brownies on the counter, and I ate lunch 2 hours ago, I force myself to not eat the brownies. I may wrap one up and squirrel it away for later when my stomach growls, and I may eat it before I eat my dinner, but I try to trust my body to know when it needs food.

This is easier said than done, but I remind myself that the food will be there when I really am hungry. This is the way God designed our bodies. A feeling of hunger means it’s time to eat. A satisfied feeling means it’s time to stop. It takes discipline to eat this way, and it means sometimes not eating when everyone else is, but it has worked for me.

 I am just beginning to homeschool. What advice can you give me?

Here is every homeschooling post I have written on the blog since 2007 [7]. And here is “Homeschool Tips From a Homeschool Veteran [8]“, an eBook in which I compiled my most helpful homeschooling tips.

In a nutshell, here’s my advice.

  • Rely on God. You won’t be able to do it on your own power.
  • Find a mentor or support group. You will need encouragement.
  • Keep plugging away. There will be days you want to quit. Don’t.

Now, be sure to see what questions the rest of my 4 Moms team are answering.
