Redeeming Christmas: Hope for the Bad Memories
The Better Mom Blog
by Kristen Lisemby Rosener
7M ago
The holiday season is all about joy-filled expectancy. For many of us, we plan our holiday meals and celebrations with eagerness and care, we purchase Christmas gifts for people with thoughtful consideration, and we do it all with Michael Bublé's Christmas album playing in the background. For some women, Christmas is a joy-filled time where traditions are celebrated and beautiful memories that will be etched in our hearts forever are made. It is a time when families gather together and laughter echoes down the halls and bounces off the walls of each room. There is so much joy. But for others ..read more

God Had a Friend, So Should We
The Better Mom Blog

I have a friend who sometimes doesn’t greet me on the phone. She will start right in with what she’s thinking as soon as I say hello. It’s one of her quirks, and it’s a welcome reminder to me of how far our friendship has come. Initially, we were friends who exchanged pleasantries. But now, we can call each other on our worst days. Isn’t that the kind of friendship we all yearn for? A friend you can be yourself with – the good, the bad, AND the ugly. While this kind of relationship is important for everyone, I think moms could agree that, for us, it’s just as essential as the noise machine in ..read more

Products to Care for Your Body the Way God Intended
The Better Mom Blog
by Ruth Schwenk
7M ago
Health and Wellness has always been something that interests me. I’ve spent years researching the entire industry, from organic foods to supplements. It is not lost on me that we have an epidemic of sickness that we have created ourselves by the food we eat, the products we use, and the activities we engage in. Food has intrigued me because I discovered over the years that I am severely allergic to any preservative, which started my organic food journey. As I also mentioned, supplements have been of particular interest to me. I’ve even spent time seeing a functional medicine doctor to measure ..read more

A Beautiful and Meaningful Gift for Someone Special this Christmas
The Better Mom Blog
by Ruth Schwenk

The power of a meaningful piece of jewelry is something I can attest to. I am a sucker for dainty jewelry but combine that with a sentimental element and I am sold. There seems to be endless options for meaningful jewelry, but not many options that are valuable pieces crafted by hand. When Haverhill reached out to me and I took a look at their line of jewelry and the history of the company, I was immediately drawn to their delicate and beautiful designs. As they state, Haverhill features personalized fine jewelry to wear your story. Wearing our story can look all different ways but Haverhill s ..read more

Audio Adventures Your Family Will Love {the perfect gift for the kids this Christmas}
The Better Mom Blog

In a world full of screens, I am so grateful for other options for teaching, entertaining and enriching our children’s lives. Audio adventures have been a favorite with our family for years. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to share Jonathan Park audio adventures with this community and to this day, Jonathan Park is still one of my very favorite audio adventures. That is why I’m excited to share their next audio adventure with you, The Adventum.  But before I share more about The Adventum with you, I think it is important to understand what audio adventures are and why I love them ..read more

Two Gifts of the Season
The Better Mom Blog
by Lauren Beccue
8M ago
We’re entering that time of year when the images in those holiday newsletters that flood my inbox look little like the reality inside my home. My table is not set with the latest Thanksgiving trends, and I don’t foresee my family wearing matching Christmas PJs, at least with smiles on our faces (because, teenagers). And every year, around this time, it strikes me that a season of celebrating gratitude for all God has done, and the peace of Jesus, can be so stressful. Why do navigating family quarrels, long wish lists, and fear of disappointment seem to take precedence?   Lately, I’ve fou ..read more

12 Ways to Practice Gratitude When You're Busy
The Better Mom Blog
by Kristin Demery

I was in the middle of washing dishes when I hit my breaking point. “Can we wait until next week to make big life changes?” I asked my husband via text, desperation bleeding through the words. “This is one the most stressful weeks of my year, and I am at my breaking point. I cannot handle anything else added to my current mental load.” We were leaving for the next week on vacation, and while I knew rest and fun were around the corner, I felt overwhelmed by everything I needed to accomplish. A manuscript was due to the publisher, we were about to launch a new book, and my work-to-do list kept ..read more
