Balancing Diapers and Deadlines – My Review!

Balancing Diapers and Deadlines – My Review!

Hello again readers!

As a work-at-home, homeschooling mom I often struggle with with keeping organized and balancing work and home. So when I recently had the opportunity to review Balancing Diapers and Deadlines from Lisa Tanner Writing I jumped at the chance! After working through the course I want to share with you how it worked for me. And perhaps, it may be just what you’ve been looking for too!



Lisa wrote this course after spending two years balancing her own life while raising and homeschooling her own 8 children, preparing most meals from scratch and running a working homestead! WOW!


Lisa describes her course this way:

Balancing Diapers and Deadlines gives all of my best tips — rigorously tested and proven to work — right to you.

The course contains over 30 lessons to show you how to take control of your life. You’ll have immediate access to all the material.

With Balancing Diapers and Deadlines, you’ll learn:

  • The number one secret for getting more done
  • Tips for integrating your family into your business
  • Effective time management for real moms growing a business
  • Little-known secrets for tackling your to-do list
  • And more!

You’ll also receive downloadable worksheets and action steps to bring it all home.

And the best part is: with the way each lesson is broken down, you can begin implementing these changes immediately.



The course is broken down into smaller, manageable lessons. This means that when you find a spare moment, you can easily get through a lesson or even two without getting overwhelmed.

Have a look at the lesson titles, each lesson is then broken down into smaller lessons, making it easy to work through. You can check off each lesson as you complete them to keep track of your progress.


I worked through the course bit by bit as I had time to sit down and read the lessons. Each lesson had great ideas for helping to create organization and balance. Lisa shared many of her own personal experiences and challenges and how she was able to overcome them. The lessons are detailed but simple, and give an action step at the end to help you to implement each strategy in your own life. Some of the lessons even come with printables and links to additional resources to help you work through the action steps.

Of course not all of the topics applied me, such as the section on “Growing a Business with a Child with Special Needs” or the section  “Improve Your Typing Speed” (I’m already quite proficient in typing if I do say so myself). But most of the topics had points I could draw and learn from. Even if I didn’t use her exact technique or idea, I was still able to use the general thoughts as a guideline to create systems that would work for our particular family. For example, there is a section that talks about chores for our children. It gives the idea of using the Marble Jar System. We’ve tried something similar to this in the past, and it just didn’t work for my kids. But I did know that our current chore system (practically non-existent) needed some work and it’s given me the push to better organize how we handle daily chores. So there is definitely something to take away from each lesson, even if you don’t follow it to a “T”.

While I can’t go into too much detail so as not to spoil the course for you, I can definitely say that I feel it is a worthwhile investment for anyone who feels they need more balance and organization in their life. Even if your kids are grown, there are still MANY helpful suggestions in the course for everyone.

So go ahead and take a closer look at Balancing Diapers and Deadlines from Lisa Tanner Writing.

Natural Health Remedies – Herbs and Essential Oils Bundle!

Natural Health Remedies – Herbs and Essential Oils Bundle!

You knew you wanted to take charge of your health (and your family’s) when you first began learning about natural remedies.You probably even knew it wouldn’t be easy.

But you had no idea you’d be so overwhelmed and confused by how much there is to learn and all the conflicting opinions.

I’ve had the same frustrations. When I first became interested in natural health, I spent so much time researching. I squeezed our tight budget to find funds to grow our health arsenal. I often had to experiment and guess, and I made a lot of mistakes along the way.

Here’s the thing, though: I didn’t really have the extra time or dollars I wished I had to devote to my new goal.

I did my best with what I had, but it was hard work. And that’s why I want to make it easier for you.

What if I told you someone had already put together a complete package to get you up to speed on using herbs and essential oils safely and effectively, or even help you dig deeper into the research and learn more advanced techniques once you’ve got the basics down?

And… that package was already carefully vetted for you (saving you time) – at a price that’s way too low to miss (saving you money)?

Well, look no further, because it’s here!

5 Of The Best Accessories For Your Instant Pot!

5 Of The Best Accessories For Your Instant Pot!

So by now I’m sure you’ve heard all about the Instant Pot right?


If not, here is a quick explanation.
An Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker that can do some amazing things!
There are a few different models and sizes available. Some people opt to own more than one, they are that awesome!
As a family of 5, we chose the larger 8qt size. This is the one we have: IP-Duo 7-in-1 8qt.

Once you’ve got your Instant Pot, there are a few accessories that can make using your pot even more fun! Here are some of my favorite accessories!

A tempered glass lid comes in so handy! You can use it when your Instant Pot is in “Keep Warm” mode, while Sauteing, or when using it as a slow cooker. Of course you could just use the big lid that comes with your pot, but we all know that it’s more fun to SEE your food cooking! The glass lid is also helpful when you have left overs and just want to put the whole stainless steal insert in your fridge.
Glass lid: 6qt | 8qt can be found HERE.

Extra silicone sealing rings! Once you’ve cooked a few times with your pot you will start to notice that it holds onto smells. Many people choose to have a few different sealing rings (in different colors to tell them apart). This way you can reserve one for use with savory foods, and another for sweet foods (did you know you can make cheese cake in the Instant Pot?!).
Silicone sealing rings 6qt | 8qt can be found HERE.

An extra stainless steel inner cooking pot! If your like me, sometimes your in a hurry and so you just put the whole pot of left overs in the fridge. But then when you want to make something else in your Instant Pot, you have to move your left overs into another pot so you can wash and reuse your inner pot. For those times when you just don’t feel like doing that, you can use your extra inner cooking pot!

Silicone Lid! When storing your left overs in the fridge, use this silicone lid. It creates an airtight, spill proof and watertight seal on the Instant Pot stainless steel inner pot.
Silicone lid 6qt can be found HERE.
Silicone lid 8qt can be found HERE.

Quick & Carry transport bag! Take your Instant Pot on vacation, down the street to your favorite social events, or just store it safely. With counter-top space limited, the Quick & Carry bag makes it easy to store all of your accessories in one convenient storage bag. Have a lot of stuff? No problem – keep all your most basic accessories conveniently organized, and tucked away when not in use.
Quick & Carry bag 6qt can be found HERE.

5 Steps To A Successful Morning!

Successful mornings don’t just happen on their own.

If you’re anything like me you like to hide in bed as long as possible, or until you can’t stand your children constantly opening the door asking for this or that!

I know what you’re thinking, the bed is warm and cozy and you’re not ready to get up! Rolling out of bed can seem like a daunting task. (more…)
