You know, they say that outer order contributes to inner calm. If so, then the opposite must be true as well:

Outer chaos can contribute to inner chaos.

Or as a book I know wisely puts it, it’s hard to make a difference when you can’t find your keys.

But there are two things I’m excited about this week that can help with outer order and inner calm–and both are found in this week’s Ultimate Homemaking Bundle.

A few years ago I got my hands on my very first homemaking bundle. I had never heard about anything like it before and I devoured tons of the ebooks and used many of the resources. I learned so much and cashed in those bonuses like a champ!

This year, even though I don’t have as much time to dig into as many of the resources, I’m excited about the fact that two bloggers who I have known and followed for years have their popular e-courses in this year’s bundle!

So even if you used nothing else, enrolling in these for the $29.97 cost of the entire bundle would still be an incredible deal. Take a peek:

Ultimate Homemaking Bundle

Raise your hand if you’re sometimes overwhelmed by all that parenting and homeschooling require of you!

(You can’t see me, but I have both hands raised, LOL.)

If you’re like me, I bet you sometimes wish your home felt more put together, that you had a better system for cleaning, that you were cooking healthy, homemade meals and that you even found time for yourself on a regular basis.

Perfection just isn’t an option for any of us; nor “should” it be. But there’s definitely a learning curve when it comes to each season of motherhood, and we know continual learning and growing has to be one of our goals as busy mamas.

Because these families of ours? They matter more than anything else.

Our job is important, and we really want to do it right.  

Maybe you wonder how you can keep up with it all and still have the energy and intentionality to be the kind of mom, teacher, wife and woman you want to be.

Now, I know as well as you do that the homeschooling lifestyle is never going to be stress-free (uh, understatement of the year, no?!)

But what if you had manageable tools to help handle the stress more successfully?
