Placenta Encapsulation: 4 Things You May Not Have Considered

Photo by Dan Ox

Very often, my prenatal clients ask about my position regarding placenta encapsulation. The midwife I work for offers this service to clients who wish to take advantage of the purported benefits of consuming their placenta postpartum, a practice technically called placentophagy.   The first consideration I had, as well as many others have, with placenta encapsulation is whether the Bible offers us any advice on this topic. For that, I will simply refer to this article by Visionary Womanhood:    [...]

A Day In My Life…

A Day In My Life... Healthy Families for God

I often get asked, “How do you do it all?” And I guess I just don’t know the answer to that really! So I decided to sit down and take inventory of a day in my life! Of course my initial thoughts are that I just don’t sit down much, I rarely watch TV, never play computer games (tried playing Words with Friends once and it sucked so much time out of my day!) and I try to make the [...]

A Better Way to Soothe Skin and Rashes

Nourishing Tallow Balm Handmade by HFFG

It’s true what they say–this mama fixes everything with breastmilk, coconut oil, and essential oils. Except as many people with skin issues have discovered, even those may not be enough. In my quest for the perfect skin moisturizer, I have made homemade lotions and creams with a myriad of natural ingredients–from shea butter to coconut oil and I’ll admit to even sneaking in some breastmilk in one batch. Of course I loved the way the batch made with cocoa butter [...]

5 Reasons Why We Chose To Live In A Smaller House

This is the front of our new (smaller) house, after we added shutters and painted the front door red. Still lots of work to do like adding an herbal flower bed up front, but you can see from this picture why many would be surprised that a family of 8 lives in this house now!

Going against the grain sure can be tough. But we’re used to that, right?! I mean, choosing not to vaccinate, breastfeeding a toddler, not putting baby in a crib, giving birth at home, homeschooling, and not shopping for food at the grocery store tends to rub people the wrong way. But I had no idea choosing to buy a smaller house would, too! Guess I was wrong.  Despite what anyone else thinks is best for our lives, we really felt [...]

Beware of Vaccine Secondary Transmission

Secondary Transmission: How Vaccines Are Actually Spreading Disease

There is a very sad (and very dangerous) irony of the backlash against the unvaccinated. And that is that those who are recently vaccinated cause what’s called secondary transmission. Ironically, THIS is what’s actually spreading these diseases.  Yes, this may sound like a ridiculous claim but research actually proves this is the case. Vaccine product information sheets even admit it. Before you get offended and stop reading, please know that this information is given in an attempt to help protect [...]

Part of my job is going over food logs from clients, but many people ask what the HFFG family eats! So here’s a candid look at a week of meals looks like for our family.  Before you proceed, keep in mind a few things We don’t eat perfect. We are on a budget. A tight one, in fact. But we do make a lot of sacrifices and have a lot of resources to get our groceries for MUCH less than [...]

The Benefits of Compost & Worm Tower Review

The Benefits of Compost and Worm Factory review by HFFG

As soon as I first started getting into gardening a few years ago, I knew that composting would be an essential part of that journey. For me, gardening isn’t just getting things to grow! When I grow food, I want it to also be full of nutrients! And in order for food to be filled with nutrients, the ground it grows in needs to be filled with nutrients too! One of the reasons so many people are so deficient in [...]

The Best Way To Help Those With ALS

The Best Way To Help Those With ALS -- Healthy Families for God

  ALS, aka Lou Gehrig’s disease, has become a popular cause to promote lately. And for good reason. Any disease that can cause such horrible health problems, especially so quickly, and then death is worthy of receiving attention. However, we are doing NOTHING to help these people with ALS by dumping ice over our heads   To begin, there are a few problems with donating money to ALS “research.” For starters, only a very small percentage of the money goes [...]

The Supplement Every Pregnant & Breastfeeding Woman Needs!

The Superfood Supplement That Reduces Toxins to Baby During Pregnancy & Breastfeeding -- HFFG

If I told you that research demonstrates that ONE supplement can reduce the toxins transferred to your baby in utero and via breastmilk, reduced pregnancy anemia and other possible pregnancy complications, would you be interested?!
