New name, Same me

March 15, 2017


I recently decided to change the name to the website. I'm just a simple wife and mom who hopes to give encouragement to others. I wanted the name to reflect that. Officially, this is not a blog. But, I do add to this site often and I share on facebook when I can. You should find it at- Holly M Nelson - soon
Please feel at home here. I don't want you to feel like I am telling you what to think or what to do. I used to be the mom who needed encouragement because I never knew how to keep my home, meal plan, budget, or even cook. I learned by lots of research and the Flylady
So, brew a cup of coffee or tea, and enjoy some reading while you are here. I hope to hear from you soon.
Blessings, Holly

Making your House a Home

October 20, 2016

 Making your house a home:                             

"She senses that her gain is good;her lamp does not go out at night." Proverbs 31:18

1. "Mess causes stress". De-clutter your house 15 minutes a day. If it really needs it; work 45 minutes, then take a 15 minute break to drink water.

2. Dark rooms are depressing. "Open the House", by opening windows every morning. Allow natural light to come in the house.

3. Keep your daily cleaning routines, but be flexible. If you didn't get it done, don't...

I've been away from blogging for a while so I could focus more time on family.

I will be posting on the blog page from time to time to show you what I've added to the site. Take a look around. You might see something new.

Weekly Wonders

March 18, 2015
1. A little Inspiration on priorities. 
"I am trying to tell the truth while offering kindness, trying to explain that I’m doing things differently now, and that I’m committed to something else, that I’m working toward peace and prioritizing rather than pursuit and perfection. And I’m getting it jumbled, I’m sure of that, and there are awkward silences while I’m trying to choose my words mindfully, but the truth is this: I am learning."

Organize your Life, Not your Stuff!

October 30, 2014
I started this website 5 yrs and 5 mos ago. It all began because friends asked how I did it all. And I wanted to share with everyone what I learned. I wanted everyone to know how it really is easy to get it all done. (ok, well maybe not 100% of the time).
Here's a breakdown for those who are new to this site:
  1. Organize your Life, NOT your Stuff!- Understand that you do not need to organize stuff. Stuff is what holds us back. 
  2. Start with Routines- Make a Morning routine, afternoon routine, and eve...
