As a general rule I strive to keep this blog relatively "child-free" in my talk. I do this specifically because of our many years of infertility and remembering how it hurt to run into "kid talk" everywhere when I wanted nothing more than motherhood. If you are struggling with the longing for a child (infertility or loss) and want to skip today's post, I won't be offended. Feel free to check out my infertility blog at instead.

But for those for whom stories about my kids won't bother, today I'm going to break my own rule and mention my little miracles because my kids and I are celebrating a big landmark - the last week of our homeschool year! We have had an amazing year Exploring Countries and Cultures and I have been moved and challenged to watch my kids grow with a heart for sharing Jesus with the world. A series of missionary biographies opened our eyes so much to all the blessings we have and all that others have sacrificed.

Our final memory verse for the year sums up what we have learned. Jesus, speaking to his desciples, say, "All aurhority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age" (Matthew 28:18-20). Isn't that amazing? Wherever I go, wherever He sends my children, He will be with us to the very end!

Changind gears here, but keeping a big world focus in mind, did you know that Affordable Mineral Makeup™ ships to all of USA, APO Addresses (Military), Puerto Rico, Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and The United Kingdom? So if you have frineds or family in these countries, please be sure to tell them about this blog too. (And even if you have friends in countries my business doesn't service yet, I would love to welcome them as readers for beauty hits, tricks, tips and insights!)

I've had a few reader questions recently that I want to answer for everyone.

Affordable Mineral Makeup™ is a powder makeup. If you prefer liquid, you can mix the powder with a little water when you are ready to apply.

Affordable Mineral Makeup™ contains only a few ingredients (except where specifically noted as in products such as mascara, where you will still find only the highest quality, healthy ingredients, just a few more of them). Each ingredient has its own special quality and purpose in the makeup:
~Titanium Dioxide has waterproof and SPF properties while providing a Matte look.
~Mica has some transparent properties and allows the makeup to go on smoothly.
~Iron Oxides give the makeup its pigment.
~Zinc Oxide is known for its healing properties in problem skin such as rosacea and acne. It has the ability to stay on even while sweating and swimming, as well as offers protection from the sun's harmful UV rays.

And here are some things that set us apart from other companies:
No Bismuth
No talc
No cornstarch or other fillers (Because we have no organic materials in our products, our minerals have no need of an “expiration date”.)

No parabens
