I saw an interesting giveaway for homemakers at Passionate Homemaking blog here.
They are celebrating the 2nd anniversary of the Passionate Homemaking blog! They are planning to host a few exciting giveaways and this week they are starting with Healthy Homemaking e-book giveaway.
Check details below about the ebook from Stephanie @ Keeper of the Home.:
(extracted from Passionate Homemaking blog)
If you haven't seen Steph's new e-book, you will want to check out this handy little resource. Healthy Homemaking: A 52 Week Journey of Baby Steps to Help you Move Towards More Natural, Nutritious and Sustainable Lifestyle is a quick and easy read but altogether practical! If you are just getting starting in living more naturally and healthy, this book is especially for you! If you have been on the journey for awhile, this book will provide you with some extra encouragement and accountability. It is a baby step guide, 52 weeks to be exact, of easy steps towards cleaning your home naturally, avoiding waste, eating healthy, and living wholeheartedly in being good stewards of God's kingdom. I found it very enjoyable to read. Each step can take a week at a time or you can draw it out as long as you desire, but each step is simple.
Stephanie's description is as follows:
This 76-page eBook includes:
** 26 Baby Steps, covering a broad range of topics in the areas of Nutrition, Cooking and Food Preparation Techniques, Going Green/Sustainable, and Natural (non-toxic) Living. Each step gives you a specific goal, teaches why that step is important, and then gives detailed directions and tips for implementing that step into your life. At the end of each step, you'll find both online and reading resources to help you with completing the step, as well as to encourage you to look into it more on your own.
** A printable chart intended to help you keep track of the steps that you are working on. It includes space to set goals for yourself, as well as to write your own notes and reminders as you implement these steps.
** A detailed introduction, discussing some of the why's and motivation behind pursuing a journey like this.
** My own personal journey. I share with you my story, from unhealthy child and teen, to where I am at today. It is a story full of bumps and challenges, huge learning curves, many mistakes and ultimately, a whole lot of God's grace.
