Who's Going to Fight Your Battles

I know we live in a time were so many topics are passé including GOD. But when you need the muscles to make it through a situation.....God gives you the strength...regardless if you give him the credit for it. When you need answers to questions that plague you...God gives you the wisdom to make the right decisions...you may not take heed to that wisdom or you may decide that you have a better idea but he gives you the wisdom and discernment you need. When the weight of the world squeezes you until you feel like you can't breathe God offers peace to you. He declared it when he said that the reason why you see only one set of...

Move Out of Your Comfort Zone

  My son has been telling me that I need to do more craft shows and bazaars. He's always giving me compliments telling me that I have a great personality and that people want to hear what I have to say. I'm being honest with you when I tell you that I'm not a real social person. So it's been hard to grasp that concept. It's not that I don't like people or anything it's just that I consider myself more of a reserved person. When I started my business I had this picture in my mind that I would just make soap and the "talkers" in my family(my son and husband)would be my voice. I felt like I could...

Crossing the Ocean is Easier Than You Think

  In life I have realized that you can't be shackled to what's comfortable. It may be comforting that you go to the same restaurant every Friday night and order the same Chicken Fried Steak meal. The 20 or so times that you have ordered it in the past have never disappointed you but what are you missing? Are you missing the best tasting Shrimp Scampi the world has ever known? Maybe you're not missing anything at all. That's the beauty of it. Stepping out on a limb and reaching for a different goal can end in overwhelming success or catastrophic failure. This has been the case many times in my soap making. I have made a batch of one...

What Doesn't Kill You WILL Make You Stronger!

2014 has been a year filled with fabulous highs and cavernous lows. I was devastated when I got the call that my mother had passed this year. I knew that no one lives forever but I didn't conceive that the day would come to reality that every season must change. My mother had always been there for me and she was my biggest supporter but the day had come when I couldn't hear her voice any longer. I couldn't tell her my woes or feel her motherly comfort. Somehow I had to keep going even though part of me was lost forever. My husband was my rock during my season of despair, supporting me, consoling me and showing me in...

Life is a Journey

 When I first started making soap it was to fulfill a need. My son's eczema was out of control and I couldn't take his discomfort anymore. As his eczema started to disappear and he had outgrown it I didn't really know that my "soap" had a purpose. It was just a fun hobby after his eczema was gone and I chose to make soap for my own personal reasons. I've always loved pretty soaps and in my house you can find decorative soaps in just about every room. When I had enough of a soap stockpile I just decided to give it away to family, friends and coworkers. I looked to no one else for advice on which kind to...
