Compensation Disclosure
In the interest of full disclosure, I have affiliate advertising relationships with numerous organizations. I receive a commission from affiliate partners when readers click, buy, print or shop their offers. This is mostly a labor of love but it's nice to get a little compensation.  My Domestic Church also contains paid advertising through a relationship with BlogHer, LinkShare,  The Home Scholar, Child 1st,  Bravewriter, and Google Ad networks. I am paid for each impression of their advertising that appears on Mydomesticchurch.com.

I (Elena LaVictoire at My Domestic Church.com) am also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. 

I will include a disclosure statement on every post/article where the direct action spoken of in the article will generate compensation. I may use and not disclose affiliate links within posts when the action I suggest you take does not directly produce compensation.

In the future, I hope to also have my own products available for sale and will be linking to my husband's business as well.
