How To Save Money by Giving Haircuts at Home

How To Save Money by Giving Haircuts at Home

I love a fresh haircut on little boys! They always look so nice with a new haircut. I like for my boys to get their hair cut once every four to six weeks. The last time my husband and sons went for a professional haircut […]

About Me: Amber

About Me: Amber

Hello! I’m Amber, an oil field wife, and boymom to three very rambunctious little fellas. My family moved from Colorado in 2013 to live on a small experimental hobby farm we’ve dubbed Wandering Hen Acres, in the Piney Woods of East Texas; where we raise chickens, ducks, and other animals my husband occasionally surprises us with.

My background in art helps fuel my passion for finding the beauty in all of God’s handiwork. I enjoy life in general but a few specifics are: music on vinyl, flaky pie crusts, and the weight of a baby in my arms. I’m almost always donning a top-knot and garden boots; and am a firm believer in liquid eye liner and mascara. Being a stay-at-home mom (or “Domestic Engineer” as I call it) to three young boys has lots of fun benefits, but I find that I rarely reach my 20,000 word per day quota, and usually not with any multi syllable words — so I write!

Life in the country is teaching me to slow down and get back to basics; so my heart is to share what God is teaching me through simple country living! I am so excited to join these other amazing ladies and contribute to Confident Foundation’s goal of encouraging women towards authentic oneness with Jesus in any small way. Thanks for welcoming me into your reading space!

Freezer Meals: Getting Started

  A few years ago I started having trouble getting dinner on the table. My oldest child was getting involved in extra-curricular activities and my other two children were still very small. Between school pick-up, practices, and games I was having difficulty fitting in meal preparation […]

I am a wife and a mom and those jobs are two of my greatest joys. My formal education is in psychology and counseling. My husband likes to tell people that I would be a professional student if that was an option! I do love to learn and read as much as possible on a variety of topics. Some of my favorite topics to learn about include personal finance, fitness, home and furniture restoration and cooking.

Superbook – A Christian TV Series for Kids: Thoughts from a Real Mom & Her Kids

Superbook – A Christian TV Series for Kids: Thoughts from a Real Mom & Her Kids

Superbook TV Series
Legalese Nonsense: I love quality entertainment for Amber during Tyler’s naps–it helps me be able to work from home! So when CBN and MomSelect offered to send me Superbook to check out of course I said yes! All afternoon snuggles, parent evaluations, and pictures are my own!

Update from 2/7/16

So after having this TV series as a part of our life for several years now I can even more wholeheartedly recommend it! After being given nearly all of season one to review (as shown here) we purchased season 2. At ages 5 & 8 now this is one of the kids favorite shows ever and I love how much of the Bible they’ve taken into heart because of it. Recently several people at church have told us how much both my children know about the Bible, and I know it’s all thanks to Super Book and our huge variety of amazing Children’s Bibles. Hurray for amazing, fun, not corny Christian entertainment! Stay tuned for a post coming very soon about other kid’s entertainment you don’t have to feel guilty about letting them watch!

Original Post:

I’m sure you remember my recent post about Superbook and it’s July airings–were you able to catch any of the series?

I was so excited to get the entire 14 episodes for Amber to watch! The show is recommended for ages 6 and up–if you didn’t realize it the Bible can get a little “adult rated” at times–even in the classic children stories! I appreciate that Superbook recommends itself to an older audience and also that it even goes so far to give you a heads up before any shows that might have more intense scenes in them.
