    I like to know what is in each herb I use, and why. This book tells me all I need to know! Bulk Herb Store offers some fabulous premixes, my favorite being the PMS Cramp Tincture, but most blends I still prefer to make myself based on specific need. This book is a very helpful guide to putting together blends based on nutritional need, and I pair it with Practical Herbalism for blending herbs based on their actions.

    Thanks so much for including your birth story. People need to hear about birth the way God designed it to be!! My husband and I actually visited the No Greater Joy offices the first weekend in August, but missed you because you were oh so with baby : )

    So we were eager to hear the news. Bradley Childbirth is fantastic- I'm a doula and I've heard many "natural childbirth" perspectives, but I love how the Bradley method really encourages women to focus in on what their body is doing- and to give in to this process.

    I liken it to trusting God- even when there is much pain/pressure!

    So, we're sorry we missed meeting you but rejoice over Penelope Jane's birth!

    Blessings, The Montmenys
