New Business and a $10,000 Bonus??

So, as I mentioned in this post announcing my transition out of full time work and back at home more, I have recently started a home-based business in order to help my family financially. What's really cool about the business is that I also get to help others in and through it as well! It's called It Works! Their best-known product are "those crazy wrap things", but we also have many other health and wellness products. I have tried and use many of them myself, and they are excellent. It Works! creates naturally-based products that are made with organic, non-GMO ingredients. I have really enjoyed sharing about these amazing products with others, offering hope and health to friends and family. I don't want to turn this post into a commercial, but if you'd like more info, please comment here or message me, or check out my website: 

Most of those connected with me on Facebook already know about it, but I wanted to make sure to share with you all too. My main reason for starting this business was in hopes of finding a way to make a little income yet still be able to stay home with Waverly. Working full time was one of the hardest things for me to do with leaving her every day, and I hope to be able to continue being home with her more from now on. So, as people who care about and love our little girl, I wanted to share. I am up for a big $10,000 bonus this month, and would love to get there, but I am in need of a few more people to check it out. Thanks in advance, and thanks for sharing in our excitement in our new adventures!

Announcement-Transition back home!

As many of you know, I (Cristen) have been working full-time since the middle of September. While my job has been amazing and we know that God provided it, it has been so difficult to maintain such a schedule in addition to all of Waverly's needs (not to mention the two older kids!). We've been praying for a while for God to provide a way for me to be able to stop full time work, and He has answered. As of the end of this month, I will no longer be working full time. While it is a bit scary and a huge step of faith, we really feel the Lord leading us in this direction. Waverly's health has really declined since last fall, and I have been feeling the pull to be home with her more, able to go to all her appointments, etc.

I will still be able to do some contracted work through my current employer (I had originally requested being part-time, but they did not have a position available for me part-time at this time, but were gracious in offering me the opportunity to do contract work, as they have opportunities arise).

I've also started working a home-based business that has been a tremendous blessing to our family. I will share more on that in another post to come soon!

I hope to be able to start blogging a little more frequently as well. I have so many thoughts and things to share, but by the end of the day, I am just too tired to get it out. Be on the lookout for a plethora of posts once the juices start flowing again!

Cipro started

Oh, I have so much on my heart and in my mind to write about. But I simply lack the ability at the end of the day to create much. Soon, my friends, I promise I will be more present soon.

In the meantime, just a quick note to let you know that we did start Waverly on the antibiotic cipro on Saturday. She started seeming like she wasn't feeling well on Thursday, so we watched her and waited to see what she'd do, and by Saturday it seemed like she was getting worse. She's acting like she's feeling better now, and we've even seen some smiles again recently, so I think it was about time. She saw the pulmonologist yesterday and he was pleased with how her lungs sounded, for her, this time. That was a welcome surprise to hear!

Thanks for your continued prayers, as always. (We can't say thanks enough!)
