Surprising Help for a Healthier Home ~ {and a $50 Giveaway!} {giveaway closed}

Apples

We all want to be healthier, right?

I do.  I spend a lot of time working on Healthy Recipes and Clean Living.

But like I’ve shared before, healthy living can go too far.

When you’ve got a child with Asperger’s (a form of autism) and life threatening food allergies, it’s easy to spend a lot of time on things like healthy food and clean living.

Sometimes too much time.

Sometimes it’s important to stop.

Take a look around.

And see what’s missing.

Today I want to share a “change of course” in my life and a new holistic focus on what a healthy home is.

But first–confession time.

I used to kind of “pooh pooh” conversations about decorating and colors and stuff like that.

And didn’t really like decor focused around “uplifting themes”.

You know….like having words like “Family” “Faith” and such on mantels.

Or Christian-themed wall hangings.

I used to think that spending money on such things was well….frivolous.  Maybe a missionary somewhere needed something, right?

(Or maybe we needed the money for supplements.)

Well, last month, I happened across Blessings Unlimited and–

Something about these products was different.

Next thing I knew I was had a consultant in my home.

Soon after, I signed up.

For my family’s health and to be a blessing to others.

Here are just a few things that have happened in our family with the Blessings Unlimited products since I first saw them.

The Blessings Door Bucket

Door Bucket

A consultant brought Blessings items to our home.  I thought the door bucket looked nice, but wasn’t sure it would work for us.

My oldest, however, read the words on the bucket:

As you enter through our door we ask the Lord to greet you with peace and comfort joy of heart and blessings sweet and new.

He said, “Wouldn’t that be nice to have on our door when people come over?”

Guess what’s on our door now.

I love it.

Blessings Blocks

Blessings Blocks Blessings Unlimited

Interchangeable blocks that spell out words of blessings.

One night, my youngest held these and said, “Mom, everyone should have a set of these!”

Then, though he has dyslexia, one night he asked us to stay up late to teach him phonics with the blocks–something that has always led to tears.

Not this time.

We did phonics for about 30 minutes and again the next day.  With lots of smiles :-).

Grace and Gratitude Mug

Blessings Unlimited Mug

This mug is a little “frilly” for my taste, but every morning I reach for it.

Something about the reminder of being grateful first thing in the morning.

I need that first thing in the morning :-).

Now, it’s not that I’m not into Healthy Recipes, Clean Living, and Frugality anymore–for proof, see:

It’s just that I’m learning.

About balance.

Sometimes I’m a slow learner.

In the interest of sharing the good that I’ve found with Blessings, I offering to one lucky blessed reader, $50 towards anything in the Blessings catalog.

    Wow, so many great things. I think my favorites are the number blocks for kids and the ABC faith magnets.

    Would love to win the blessings door bucket and any of the aprons. I “liked” your blessings facebook page and I already “liked” The Better Mom on faceboom.

  4. Michelle D says

    I would love the Grace and Gratitude apron, it is so cheerful for those not so great days in the kitchen (again!). I would also enjoy the blessing blocks.

  5. rachel v. says

    I really like the door knocker, the blessing cardholder, the celebrate plate. okay that’s three but i like them all :)

  6. Michelle D says

    I “liked” the facebook page too! I love this blog- it has really helped me get in line these last few months as a mom to 3 under 5.

  8. Melissa Romero says

    I love the Enjoy Life Placemats. I would love to have 6 of them for my table. I also love the Footed Server Set bowls.

  9. Kelli says

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the blessing blocks! What a great way to display such an awesome message! Blessed is one word I often used to describe my life with Christ! I also love the door bucket you showed as well as the jewelry that I saw on the website. Thank you for sharing!

    • says

  10. Amyleahmiller says

    I would love to have the “O Praise Him” photo/artwork and the Scripture puzzles for my sweet little boy. He LOVES puzzles and it would be such a great way to teach him more Scripture!

    • says

      Hi Amy. In case you are interested the Noah Puzzle just went on clearance yesterday. The whole list of clearance items is on my facebook page and you can order on my site if you’re interested. The puzzle is only $11 :-)!

  11. Christy says

    Everything looks like so much fun but I’d have to say my son would love the refrigerator magnets and eventually the puzzle, when he’s a bit older!

  12. Josh and Sarah Lilly says

    Beautiful items! I would love to have the Blessings Blocks and the Serving Bowls in my new home. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

    • says

      Brooke, the Card Organizer just went on clearance yesterday if you are interested (along with a bunch of other things). You can see the whole list on my Facebook page. The organizer is only $8 – enjoy!

  13. Memoriesmama says

    I would love the Blessings Cardholder (but I would use it for pictures of my 9 girls!) and the set of two would plaques with hooks (trust & love).

  14. Kathy S says

    I love the Enjoy Life placements, and especially the Gracious Lazy Susan – I have 2 daughters from India so it would make an excellent addition to our table :)

  15. sandi says

    Only TWO things to like? REALLY? I love the teacup with the butterflies, the apron, the canister collection, the front door thing that you mentioned, *the BLESSINGS card holder*, the double-sided puzzles….

  16. Rhonda says

    Oh. My. Goodness. I want EVERYTHING in your catalog. :) But if i HAD to choose two things, I suppose I’d pick the Guard Your Heart Necklace and the Set of Four Mugs (Beauty, Blessing, Gratitude, Wonder). BUT… it would STILL be very hard to choose. :)

    • says

      I felt the same way :-). If you like that much maybe you should have a gathering or become a consultant. That way you can get things at a good discount. I am not trying to push you at all, but let me know if I can be of help.

  17. Carrie Brumbach says

    Thanks so much for this post today. I had never heard of Blessings Unlimited until now and I’m loving it! I especially like the “As for me & my house…” wall hanging (I’ve been trying to find something like that for years!!) and the Blessings blocks.

  18. Shelly Goguen says

    The Queen Anne’s Lace Pitcher is beautiful and SO elegant. I also really like Amazing Grace framed print.

  19. Valisa says

    I just ordered from Blessings unlimited for the first time last month and I love my stuff. Of course there is more I would love to have like the blessing blocks, abc magnets for kids, One Thousand Gifts journal, etc….

  20. says

    I visited your Blessings Unlimited site. Wow. Beautiful stuff. It’s hard to narrow it down to only 2 things. I love everything. I’m a coffee and a home decor lover so the mug and the Blessings wall hanging are 2 of the things I’d love.

  21. libertybain says

    I like the God’s heart tokens and the Gratitude blocks – aaaannnd pretty much everything else as well!

  22. vickie says

    I would love the vintage block set and because I use aprons (I’m messy) it would be neat to have the grace and gratitude apron

  23. Northshoretrio says

    love love love this! haven’t ever seen it before and am so encouraged and want to check it out! would love to win the gracious lazy susan for my mom and the vintage block set for my friend melissa.

  24. Julie says

    Thank you Adrienne for sharing this with me, I have never seen this before! Leave it to you to find the good things :) I will be in contact :)

    • says

      Hello Lauren – did you see the sale flyer on my Facebook page? The Emerald vase set is being discontinued and is on super sale. I just ordered one for myself – I think it’s lovely. I would recommend looking at it if you are interested since they are going fast.

      I ended up ordering enough to qualify for hostess gifts and got the 4 mugs for half price. If there’s anything I can help with let me know. I have an offer for a long distance catalog gathering on my Facebook page if that would interest you. Take care!

  25. Diaperswyper says

    Beautiful! I can hardly pick only two but “Blessed by the grace of God” wall art and the little emerald vase set stand out.

    • says

      Hi! I couldn’t really pick out two either…..that’s part of why I signed up….Anyway, I thought I should mention that the emerald vase is on clearance now….I just bought mine. The sale flyer is on my Facebook page.

      And, the Blessed by the Grace sign is a hostess gift for July. If you would like to, you could host a catalog “gathering” and earn it for only $17. If you are at all interested, I would be happy to work with you. I am offering discounted products to anyone who would like to host a gathering like that. Just let me know on Facebook or at wholenewmom at gmail dot com if you’re interested.

  26. Carla Anne says

    Wow… I do like the catalogue! If I had to pick just two things… Ooh… either the blessing cups with the little plates from “The Reminders of His Love” Collection. But I’d also agree that those Blessing Blocks wold be right up there in my books!

  27. Joyfuljoyners says

    I love the blessing basket for my door and the lantern! I never knew this company was around. Beautiful and wonderful!

    • says

      Hello! I don’t know if you noticed but if you go and “like” my Blessings facebook page, the lanterns are on clearance this month so they will go fast! They are super cheap. I am wishing I bought them now :-).

  28. Tammy B. says

    I would love to win a bracelet ald the footed yellow bowls. They have some very beautiful bowls, thanks for the give away.

  29. Michelle T. says

    I would like to win the Blessed by the Grace of God wall hanging, and the Amazing Grace framed print. Thanks for the giveaway!

    • says

      Mi Michelle. I don’t know if you noticed, but that beautiful sign is a hostess special for July. If by any chance you’d be interested in a catalog gathering, you could get it for only $17. I’d be happy to help if you are interested – I am working w 2 other ladies doing that. Happy Fourth!

  30. Kelli says

    I really like the set of four plates (Gratitude, Wonder, Beauty and Blessing) and the set of four coasters.

    Everything from the Blessings Unlimited site is just lovely. I especially love the tiered server and the beautiful tea cups ♥

      Hello Lori. I thought you might like to know that the tiered server is on clearance – Just went down to $24 on 7/1. I purchased one myself. So..you may want to take a look at it before it sells out :).
