Free guitar lessons from one of the best guitar players around & they really do work...

We started our two middle daughters ages 7 & newly turned 9 in on these lessons with both my husband and myself knowing next to nothing about guitar lessons or how to play (although my hubby is an excellent drummer by ear and I have a piano background) and so far we love the progress and enthusiasm they are showing. These are just the best learning videos around in an age where anybody can learn anything with the Net and all. I encourage everybody to try these and when they're for free, how can you turn that down!!!

Save $$$ On Organic Eco Nuts® Soap Nus Laundry Detergent & Household Cleaner & Be Really Good To Your Skin Especially Those With Eczema...

Our family tried the laundry detergent and can't believe the difference in our clothing but also how soft and gentle it feels especially against irritated skin. Our youngest daughter has Eczema and many detergents and soaps irritate and inflame her condition. Eco Nuts is so gentle and doesn't bother her skin at all.
Eco Nuts® Soap Nuts are a berry that grows in the Himalayas that naturally produces a soap. The soap is called saponin, a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibers of your clothing, lifting stains from the fabric and leaving dirt suspended in the water that is rinsed away.

Eco Nuts are gentle on both clothes and skin, making them ideal for those with sensitive skin, eczema, allergies and psoriasis. Because they are so mild, they are perfect for baby clothes and cloth diapers. All-Natural Eco Nuts are also great for septic and grey water systems. But don’t expect these shells to foam up like commercial soaps, which have artificial foaming agents. Foam simply does not represent cleaning power.

Eco Nuts are wild-harvested, meaning they are gathered from wild trees grown without any kind of chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. The saponin actually tastes bad to insects so no pesticides are needed, and the trees naturally love poor uncultivated soil. They are organically grown by mother earth and certified USDA Organic by Oregon Tilth.

Sibling Love... How Do You Parents Out There Foster This Love?

Fostering Sibling Love

Today I found myself evaluating just how close our baby bunch is in terms of sibling love. I guess it makes sense given the fact that our newly turned 9 year old daughter just returned from camp after being gone from her family for a few days for the very first time. When we were pregnant with them one after another, we wanted so badly for them to be closer than anything and we still long for that. We want to make sure they have each others backs always and that they forever share their special bond in driving mom and dad nuts…and will forever be best friends. We never wished for a girl or a boy but rather just a healthy baby each time and that is what we were so very blessed with. As it turned out we had a girl, a girl, and then a boy in this baby bunch and the three of them couldn't be closer. There is always laughter especially those baby belly laughs and there are always tears for one reason or another and the three of them share in each other's laughter and tears with one of them usually being the cause of the one or the other. In discussing what makes them so close, gender always comes up but I can honestly say that gender isn't an issue but what is is how we as parents foster that sibling love between them. We are always aware of this and always adjusting our parenting styles to accommodate our children and their sibling bonds. Some have asked how we as parents foster the love between our kids?

Here are some key things that Greg and I did intentionally to foster all our children's love.

- Sibling Gifts: When  Fiona was first born, we let our two older children, Kimberly and Lily, pick out a stuffed animal to “gift” to Fiona. They each wrapped their stuffed animal, named it, and gave it to Fiona. There is something about giving a gift that makes you feel love for the recipient. We also had Fiona “gift” the girls something that was very specific to what they loved. So, it was the first start of establishing their relationship with the newest member of our family and so on. We do this with birthdays to add the element of surprise and to make them feel special too.
We gave Fiona a Cabbage Patch doll when Sabrina came home (14 months later) to foster a love for her baby from the get go instead of feeling jealousy towards the new baby and thus established her love and mother hen qualities when caring for her new baby. And then both girls were given charge of their new baby 
From the beginning we fostered special nicknames between them for each other. There is something special to a meaningful nickname between siblings to creates a special bond that they don’t share with others.
- “Give one to Nana”. Give one to "Breenie". Give one to "Rexie". We also make them “give” and share things with each other. If one asks for a pretzel or a cookie when we're in the mall, they all get one and we encourage them to share with their brother and sister as if it were their idea and praise them so that their perspective is always one encomposing them all. One for all and all for one works!
- Team FSR! Treat them as a team together as much as possible. Make them high five, hug, and chest bump! They’ll get the sense really quickly that they are on the same team.
We continue to find new ways to encourage our children to be each others best friends because sibling love is so very important to both my husband and myself and would love to hear from our readers how you encourage close bonds in siblings.

Health Inside & Out With A Device For Meditation Stress Relief & Mindfulness With Dr. Andrew Weil & Dr. Deepak Chopra...

Our family invested in one of these for benefit of stress relief through meditation, maximum brain health through brain training and mindfulness, and just plain for the tranquility that we all need from our busy days being parents, managing our households, working, and what have you. I wasn't really sure how it was going to work but I have a really hard time managing my stress load and worrying about my family trying to juggle so many different things at once. My doctor prescribed medication for those moments when life gets really out  of control stressful that makes me really drowsy and not quite with it so taking that regularly or even once in a while is really just out of the question because I want to be alert and there for my children and my husband. Try as I might, I just could not seem to find the peace necessary for meditation because I am so busy in my thinking but when I got this device the world changed. It's amazing how easy it is to focus on what's at hand. It's almost like magic how well my brain responds and how awake and sharp I feel after I center or balance myself using this amazing program. It's definitely an other worldly experience when you are fully engaged. The doctors that accompany the meditation and mindfulness training are world renown for their natural and homeopathic approach in medicine and believe that our powers to heal ourselves and one another lay in our healthy mind body connection. We would highly recommend this device and program to anybody out there trying to achieve optimal balance, health, and well being in mind body and spirit.

THE CHILDREN'S BIBLE - online book - index page

In looking for a Child's Bible or Children's Bible stories online I came across this site & think it's definitely worth looking through and bookmarking for a digital version for when you're on the road or camping out or whatever you may be doing that makes taking a personal Bible impractical! THE CHILDREN'S BIBLE - online book - index page

Genesis 50:20 - ESV - Online Bible Study #DailyBible

Genesis 50:20 - ESV - Online Bible Study #DailyBible Our family has recently begun going to a new church which we are enjoying immensely ( that has an amazing new energy that is led by Lead Pastor Pat Stark through Genesis Church in Alice Cooper's long standing and commendable philanthropic reach into Phoenix, Arizona's youth (especially the at risk kids out there that are just waiting for somebody to show them direction.) We as a family have recently decided to commit to reading the Bible in 365 days and would love to have you join us in these pursuits and if you are here in Arizona, we would love to encourage you to join us on Sundays at 10 a.m. at The Rock Of 32nd Street at Thunderbird Rd. & 32nd Street for this dynamic worship hour! It is welcome to all denominations and an extremely inviting yet casual and relaxing live and let be environment! We sure hope to see you there! Right below here we capture the introduction to The Rock AT 32nd Street just to show you why we are so excited to be a part of such a phenomenal program and community offering...

“We are fulfilling a vision we’ve had for several years…to provide teens and children with a central place to learn, have fun, and explore their creativity in a supportive and safe environment. The Rock will be one of the first of many teen centers in Arizona and, ultimately, around the country.” – Alice Cooper

The Rock at 32nd Street Teen Center has been the dream and passion for Alice and Sheryl Cooper and the entire Solid Rock team for the past 12 years. The time has finally come to make that dream a reality. A collaboration of Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock and Genesis Church, The Rock ministers to teens through the music, dance, art, vocational training in sound, lighting, and staging, and fellowship in a safe facility. With so many public schools forced to cut vital programs like music and dance due to lack of school funding, The Rock will cultivate a love of the arts to inspire and challenge teens to choose artistic excellence instead of drugs, guns, or gangs. Who knows what amazing performers, choreographers and producers might come from The Rock?
