New Blog Series - Make Your Own! recipes and tutorials for MYO everything!

I love knowing how to make EVERYTHING, even if I don't do it every single time, or even if I just know how but haven’t done it. I love knowledge. As a homeschool mom and a practical person I tell you this... If you spend any time in any endeavor, let it be knowledge that is useful. Know the Lord first and foremost, let your knowledge begin there. Then gain knowledge of how to take care of your family well, how to feed them and heal them and clothe them. I believe this knowledge is more important that stock-piling dry goods or medicine, or shopping for a good bargain. Why? Because no matter how much you store, someone can always take it away. Most everything has an expiration date and will go bad, clothes get worn out and outgrown. But when you know how to make the things that are usually purchased, when you know how to help others, that knowledge will last your lifetime. Things you think you don’t need to know may end up being a blessing to someone who needs to learn. Be a blessing to your family and your friends, or even to strangers, learn to do for your family and teach others to do the same. 
3The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
 4That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
 5To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.  Titus 2:3-5 KJV

 MYO- mixes
One of the skills I enjoy is making home made mixes. I have many reasons for making them, but here are a few ...
  • When manufacturers purchase ingredients for products the main focus is their bottom line. That’s not good news for us. When you make your own mixes you control what goes into your mixes. Be it natural, organic or home grown, with MYO you can have the time saving benefit of mixes without sacrificing the health of your family.
  • You know exactly what ingredients are in them, so you can use homemade mixes for ANY special diet needs...
  • They're easy to use and much lower in cost than store bought mixes, which means you can have the convenience of mixes without the cost!...
  • They're made with your own fresh and natural ingredients, so your mix is far superior to store bought both in quality and taste...
  • You can save time, money and energy making your mixes ahead at least a few batches at a time. (make it once use it thrice!)

I think mixes are so beneficial that I decided to start a blog series labeled MYO (make your own) sharing recipes and tips for MYO everything! I’m starting with make your own mixes, featuring everything from spices to soups to baking mixes. The series will continue on, as I learn more to share, so if you're looking for just those, click on the MYO blog tag to the right! Other recipes will be under the recipes label. But please feel free to poke around and enjoy the whole blog! We love visitors too so feel free to share and link back to my blog. And thanks for stopping by!
Be Blessed!
