Scholarship Counseling

I still owe Johnson and Wales University. My son graduated debt free from college and  my husband will too next year. I have one daughter currently in college just this year and have been able to secure various money for college. Hopefully, my last two daughters will follow this legacy I’m trying to establish now that I know college money is available to each of them for so many different reasons.  There’s money for being left handed, a  U.S.Veteran or child of one, a basketball star, a nerd, tennis player, a vegan,  I could go on and on!

Trust me. There is nothing smart about paying for college when you know there’s money available to you. The resources are here! Go get this money! I have listed three amazing sources below!

This edition of Scholarship Saturday features 60 college scholarships and contests closing soon. There is a lot of scholarship money available – apply today!

Scholarships are money Just For You! Applying for them is not easy. Because too many parents/ students won’t research, qualify, apply and follow up. But they are within your tsmreach. Start Early, Find Your passion, Be Proactive-Not Reactive. – The cost of attending college isn’t going down anytime soon here in the  U.S.. But the good news is there is a way to make college possible by winning scholarships. – Bernice Feaster, The Scholar Mom

Wednesday Wow: Keep Those Icky Germs Away-Herbal Remedies

Phew! Can you believe we are headed into the winter season already? There is nothing more pitiful than to look in your child’s eyes and see pain, congestion and low energy. Over the years, I’ve put together some of my favorite herbal blends for my family. Because they don’t always like my culinary creations, I try to mix it up a bit with power herbs to reach the same goal of a high immune system.

 

Kombucha-A happy gut is a healthy body. The main part of your immune system is ingerm-2 your gut, so keeping it supplied with good bacteria will help make a stronger body. There are a few ways to do this but a good probiotic and/or fermented foods in your diet like kombucha  will help populate the good bacteria in your body.

Powdered herbs into blender shakes/Smoothies– ADD IN  cod liver oil, collagen/ food sources of vitamin C  with some berries, steamed greens and coconut water every day to make sure we are starting off on the right foot.

tea-tree-soapSoap -When flu prevention experts advise you to wash your hands, they don’t mean a light drizzle of water. As mama always said, use soap and warm water — and rub hands for 15 to 20 seconds. Sing the ‘Happy Birthday’ song twice while rubbing, to keep track of the time.

What You’ll Need

  • A natural bar soap of choice. Homemade bar soaps usually work well and my other favorites are Dr. Bronners, african black soap, and Kombucha soap (available here).
  • Distilled or filtered water
  • A dispenser: Reuse an old soap dispenser, use a glass one or metal one, or make one out of a mason jar by drilling a hole in the top and hot gluing on the top of a soap pump dispenser.

What You Need- to do is:

 

teaStrong Tea-Keep things moving by drinking water. This will help stimulate your immune system during an illness because it helps your body flush the germs. Making the water into a tea is a bonus.

How To Make Homemade Mouthwash

  • 1 cup of Purified Water
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 5-10 drops of Thieves Essential Oil (depends on how strong you want it)
  • 4 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
  • 2 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil
  • Optional: 1 tsp baking soda
  • Glass bottle (essential oils can degrade plastic)

Getting our herbs and spices from our garden and local farmer’s market is nice too. Being able to grab Western medicine is easy. But do you really want to be completely dependent on someone else for your healing. Let’s be like the ants and do more for ourselves. It works!

tcwf big 2tcwff

Every fair has a theme and target market. We don’t want to be like the “Southern Women’s Show” or “For Sister’s Only”.They are both great fairs., but it’s not what we are best at,.

At the 6th Total Children’s Wellness Fair you won’t see high priced celebrities, or preservatives loaded popcorn. But you will discover real solutions for average families by amazing vendors, local entertainers and delicious clean edible treats.

 

This fair is a direct representation of our diverse city, it’s mom powered by Queen City Stay At Home Moms, – moms of the QC!

We know our audience,and the people we see everyday: other parents, the unborn to the college student. The mission is to provide  fun atmosphere where the family can affordably, easily and quickly find local holistic services and products that will enhance their wellness on all seven (7) levels {Socially, Spiritually, Environmentally, Educationally, Physically,Nutritionally, and Financially.}

We do this by practicing collective efforts. Our vendors pay a tiny fee to help cover space rental, marketing, decoration, refreshments and other administrative expenses. . We hire community teens to greet, direct and engage during the event to help keep the energy family friendly and happy. We have a Re-Fashion Show, Cooking With Kids Challenge, a live DJ, and a professional fitness coach to give everyone a fun workout. It’s always free to enter, shop and enjoy.tcwf01

We have been copied but never duplicated. Why? Because we use the experience and connections of mom power.! Our moms come from every level of motherhood and educational background.
