Make Beautiful Moments Last A Lifetime (Ultimate Digital Photography Bundle)

When I look at my  five beautiful children, I can’t help but notice that they are growing up before my very eyes… I used to wish the years away, looking to a time where I was child-free again, able to do my own thing; blog, have a business, go out with girlfriends for coffee in the mornings. Whatever it is that child-free humans do.

The truth is, when I stop to think about it, I don’t actually want these years to pass at all. In fact, if I could freeze time right now, and have a 13, 10,7, 3 and 6 month old, I would. I love the place each one is at, and the dynamic between them all.

But alas, they are growing up. This realization hit me hard recently when we visited another part of the country where we used to live, and literally everyone we saw commented in wonder at how much the children have grown (which was very surprising to me considering the way vegetables hardly make it into their gastrointestinal tract!).

Truly, my friend, the only things that remain of these years are memories and photographs to help trigger those memories.

For my 40th birthday (not that many years ago :-)) I requested only one gift from my family. A good digital camera! I desperately wanted to capture the moments, emotions, experiences, and faces of my children. Of our family. My husband saw my heart, and did invest in a good camera for this purpose.

The only thing is, that I didn’t realize that just having a decent camera wasn’t enough. I actually needed the skills and know-how to operate that camera to be able to take photos that would be a joy to look at 5, 10, 20 years down the line.

Years from now we all want to be able to look through our photos and instantly be transported back to those special moments – not wracking our brains to remember what a particular episode really looked and felt like.

I’ve come across an incredible bundle that I wanted to let you know about that would be an absolute asset to you in learning to capture those gorgeous children and precious moments…

It contains a huge assortment of ebooks and video training courses provided by professional, world-renowned photographers who are experts in teaching others – even complete beginners. You won’t need to switch up to a more expensive camera to make full use of the bundle (even if you have an iPhone), and you don’t need to neglect your family for weeks upon weeks of training!

I really believe in the potential of this amazing bundle to transform the way we remember the good ol’ days we are living in right now!

Look good? I haven’t even told you the best news about it! Everything in the bundle has a combined total value of $555, but for this week only, the entire bundle is being sold for just $37 – a discount of more than 90%!

What’s more, they’re also throwing in a FREE copy of FX Photo Studio Pro software from MacPhun (which provides stunning filters and photography effects) worth $29.99!

For Every Woman, Wife, Mom, and Homemaker: The Ultimate Bundle!

Dear Friend,

Sometimes I look around my house and wonder how things got so out of hand.

When I was a little girl, I dreamed about getting married, becoming a mommy, and having my own home.

I imagined a home that was more than just 4 walls, a roof, and a mortgage.

I wanted to make a special place that was a magical mash-up of:

• a learning environment,
• a playground,
• a refuge,
• a boo-boo “fix it” station,
• a “you can do it” pep rally, and
• a safe place for personal faith, expression, sharing and growth.

And then real life happened…

…laundry, diapers, stretch marks, and never-ending meal prep… money worries, gritty floors, soap scum, and the stain that won’t come out of my son’s favorite shirt… holiday stress, and teaching my daughter to read (and master long division)… a husband who works long hours, a child with the sniffles, stomach aches and a fever… and a secret dream to run my own little business from home.

As rewarding as it is, homemaking is hard work and it doesn’t always come easily. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle!

What is the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle? It is a complete library of 99 eBooks and eCourses to help you nurture the beauty and productivity in your home and family relationships.

Here are some of the awesome books you’ll see inside:

And more!!!

And for a limited time, the price is only $29.97. (A total value of $984.74.)

That breaks down to 30 cents per book… a full 97% discount! (And yes, everything is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.)

There are also some amazing bonuses from generous, inspiring companies that understand homemakers like you. Every gift is yours to enjoy. I wonder which one will be your favourite?

But time is running out! The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle will only be available from 8:00 a.m. EST on Monday, April 20 until 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, April

CLICK HERE to get all the details.

Best wishes and happy homemaking!

Invaluable Parenting Skills Learned From The Royal Family

Last night I watched a documentary titled, “Born to Royalty.” I don’t know why, but the royal family of Britain has always fascinated me. I absolutely loved Lady Diana, and was devastated when I’d heard she was killed back in the 90’s. I felt as though I’d lost a friend. Strange, I know :-)!

This particular documentary (and no, I don’t spend every free moment I have reading up on or watching DVD’s of these privileged folks! Just to clarify :-)), was about parenting styles of the various generations of those who occupied and are yet to occupy the throne.


There were examples of strict and rigorous parenting, which begot descendants who later parented their own children in the same way. The consequences of this style of parenting were spoken of, including those that affected King George VI, whom you may have learned about in the excellent film, The King’s Speech. Then there was the shift into more modern parenting techniques adopted by Prince Charles and Lady Di, and now by Will and Kate.

I found it all fascinating… but there was one idea that was mentioned which blew me away. It was a “Duh!” moment. You know, one of those, “Why didn’t I think of that, it’s so obvious?!” moments you get once in a long while?

Princess Elizabeth’s parents, once they knew she would become queen, were said to have placed less emphasis on her academic studies, and far more training into other matters that would prepare her for her destined role of queen. Wow!

It instantly dawned on me as clear as God sees through the earth, that while academics are certainly important, shouldn’t you and I rather invest into our children to prepare them for their God-given, predestined, heavenly ordained roles in this life? Tweet that

Now, granted, we don’t know what form that exact role will take when each of our babes are born (it would have been helpful to have a little note delivered with the baby disclosing that information :-)). However, God’s Word does disclose several roles that our children will need to take, and therefore we as parents, do need to prepare them accordingly.

It is our duty, for example, to train our children for the royal roles of:

Being ambassadors for our Lord

  • Knowing how to articulate the Gospel to others
  • Maintaining a good example of Kingdom principles such as integrity, honesty, and generosity to others
  • Allowing one’s speech to always be seasoned with salt, building others up (1 Thessalonians 5:11), and being ready at every moment to give an account for the reason of our hope

Treating others with dignity and respect

One of the first lessons that is taught to young royals, is to take an interest in others. As long as they know how to be interested in others, the royals are considered to be well on their way to managing their positions! Biblically, this goes right in line with:

  • Considering others as more important than oneself
  • Being humble of heart
  • Displaying the fruit of the Spirit to those around us, and umpteen other commands in the Word that we could follow

Dying to Self

Ouch! This is a hard one to instill into our children, but a practice that every son and daughter of the King is required to live by. We are to teach our young ones to:

  • Sacrifice their own desires, wants, and preferences for the sake of others
  • Give generously, even at the expense of one’s own plans and prosperity
  • Make use of their God-given hours on this earth to serve and glorify God, rather than pursue selfish means to selfish ends. To seek His face daily and utilize every day to further the Kingdom of God; grow in His grace, the knowledge of His Word, and the love for others

 Just imagine if you would invest more time, effort, money, and care into training your children for these Royal roles, rather than in more temporal and futile matters.


Again, I am not saying that academics are not in order, or even necessary. But I for one intend to devote more of my resources as a mom in preparing my beautiful five children for the ministry of God’s work on this planet.

And may the utterances of God encourage us in these words:

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

Galatians 6:9

Where is your focus spent in your children’s lives – more on academics or more on character training? Would love to hear your thoughts…
