Our Homestead Management Binder

I am a planner by nature, but implementing my plans is a completely different story. As the new year comes closer, one of my top goals is to be more organized in the new year. After all, I’m planning a huge homesteading conference in October—I better be prepared and well planned! Taking on such a huge task, however, has shown…

My 2017 New Year Goals for Homestead &Life

Last year’s goals were pretty awesome. I honestly didn’t have too many goals for last year. And all but 2 or 3 of them, I accomplished. I like to set realistic goals for myself, and then a few crazy ones just to make it fun. I don’t do the whole “lose 30 lbs” resolution and such. Each year, my goal…

Inexpensive Photography Backdrops & Tips for Homestead Bloggers

Over ten years ago, I began my blogging journey. In the beginning, it was just words. I allowed words to flow out of me and used stock photos if I needed them. Sometimes, I didn’t even use photos. The people who read blogs back then were people who simply enjoyed reading—with or without photos. They were people who enjoyed connecting…

Raising Our Girls to Be Leaders

My Dad didn’t get saved until I was about 5 or so years old. If you remember your beginning walk as a Christian, you know that it takes a long time before you find that groove that you feel comfortable in.

The Task of Raising Warrior Sons

I can remember when I was pregnant, vividly remember. I remember praying every single night that my child would have a kind and gentle and sweet spirit. I can remember when he was two, and he would just go along with whatever his cousins would tell him to do. I can remember when he was four, and he had such…

Thanksgiving On Our Homestead

My grandmother and Jr striking a pose! Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday. Mostly, because we get to eat lots of food and not feel guilty for it. If you feel guilty, stop it. Stop it right now. Thanksgiving is always very wishy washy for us. When we first got married, we tried to go to “everyone’s” house. And then,…

All Natural Dryer Sheets | Wool Dryer Balls and Essential Oils

I feel most nostalgic during the fall and winter seasons. Holidays are so important to me, and some years it’s hard to find a balance between carrying out old traditions, and creating new ones of our own. Recently, though, I’ve been trying to find nostalgia in scents. The wood stove starts this for me every single year. The smell of…

{Video} | Be Authentic

I recently discovered a well known author copied my web ad for my book, along with various other things on their website. In the modern world, we run into a lot of this. But it’s not just copy cats. In fact, I’d venture to say we deal more with comparison and insecurities, and that’s why these things happen in westernized…

Hormone Imbalance, Essential Oils, & the PCOS Elephant in the Room

When I was trying to get pregnant with our son, I was part of an incredible online forum of women who were on the trying to conceive journey as well.

Choosing to Be Thankful

Every year my social media outlets are flooded with statuses and photos each day of November, expressing why someone is thankful and what they are thankful for. It’s fun to scroll through and see happiness and gratitude—more so than normal. Some people talk about their spouse and children. Some people are thankful for their farm and animals. Other’s are thankful…
