Medieval Knights on Horseback Home and Family Links


This page contains links to home making, decorating, organizing, and management sites, as well as christian family, child rearing, and godly parenting sites. You will also find sites about gardening and country living. I am just starting to collect Home and Family links; if you have personal favorites, please send the URL my way. :-) What’s coming: I hope to type up and post our family’s simple plan that we used to train our children in obedience and self-discipline. The plan consists of six simple household and family rules that children begin learning at age one, which covers all the bases.

The Godly Home Gardening and Country Living


The Godly Home

At Home Mothers
This quote by Hannah Whitall Smith (author of The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life) sums up the philosophy of At Home Mothers magazine: “To be a mother is the greatest vocation in the world. No being has a position of such great power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her is necessarily committed the making of the nation’s citizens.”

The Catalog Site
Links to every mail-order catalog imaginable, including gardening, home improvement, educational toys, books, discounted kids clothes, and anything else you might need to find a source for.

The Compleat Mother
The breastfeeding, childbirth, and pregnancy online magazine.

Crockpot Cooking
A nice page of links from a homeschooling mom.

Dead Doctors Don’t Lie
Okay, we admit it: we use alternative medicine, and we take collodial minerals to help our bodies function as God intended. (Homeschoolers and Christians are already going against societal norms, so why not take the full plunge? A medical establishment exists that is motivated by profit, not wellness, just as an educational establishment exists that is motivated by profit, not learning.) If you want to know why, then meet Dr. Wallach, a vetrinarian and a medical doctor, author of Dead Doctors Don’t Lie, and Nobel Prize in Medicine nominee for his work in mineral deficiencies and their effect on degenerative disease. But be warned -- you will get it straight from the horse’s mouth with Dr. Wallach.

Don Aslett’s Cleaning Center
Don Aslett, America’s top cleaning expert, produces the Clean Report. Get Don’s books and recommended supplies (some cleaning products work, and some don’t), for cleaning, with the least time and effort, every area of your home, office, car, and laundry.

eBay Internet Auctions
You can find anything here.

Once a Month Cooking
Make the most efficient use of your time: learn how to cook for a day but feed your family for a month. I just love getting dinner out of the freezer after a long day of classical homeschooling, when I’m too tired to cook from scratch.

Thoughts for Young Men
By J. C. Ryle. A wonderful discipleship tool for raising sons.

Titus2.com
The Managers of Their Homes website. Steve and Terri Maxwell share: “The biggest problem we’ve found [to homeschooling]: how do you find the time to do it?!? While it's true that a fool learns from his own mistakes, a wise man learns from the mistakes of others. Our goal is to use this web site to share with you some of the mistakes and triumphs that we have been through over the last 14 years of homeschooling. Hopefully, you will learn from our mistakes, be encouraged by our successes, and come away with a desire to schedule your days to achieve your absolute best.”

Gardening and Country Living

Backwoods Home Magazine
Practical ideas for self-reliant living. If you want to become totally self-reliant, or just want a few ideas to decrease your dependence on the world’s system, then this magazine can help. Articles from previous issues about homeschooling, gardening, alternative power, livestock, American history, and more are all online. This magazine and the Countryside and Small Stock Journal have been the most help to us.

Biological Control Virtual Information Center
We try to maintain a balance in our garden between “good” and “bad” bugs, as we won’t use pesticides. You can attract the beneficial bugs that prey on the bugs eating your corn, cabbage, and tomatoes: here’s how.

Countryside and Small Stock Journal
“83 years old, and a new wrinkle with every issue! Countryside is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and much more.”

Farmer’s Almanac
The website of the Farmer’s Almanac, with lots of information on weather, moon phases, words of wisdom, and a link to the Gardener’s Companion.

Garden Catalogs List
A listing of over 700 mail order gardening and seed catalogs, sorted by type. Includes addresses and phone numbers for ordering a catalog, plus ratings.

Gardening: WWW Virtual Library
The high-quality links specifically related to gardening from the WWW Virtual Library.

Livestock: WWW Virtual Library
The high-quality links specifically related to rearing and caring for livestock from the WWW Virtual Library.

Rodale Press Online
My family and I are organic gardeners, and Rodale Press and Organic Gardening Magazine have helped us successfully grow beautiful organic produce year after year.
