If you would’ve asked me years ago if I would write books, author blogs, be an entrepreneur, and start a podcast . . . I would’ve looked at you like you had an octopus on your face. No really, I would’ve. This was not me. I was a shy, quiet little girl who grew up in a farm town. I was happy with simple then, and I’m happy with simple now.
As I grew up and experienced life, I realized that life wasn’t as simple as living in that small farm town. It wasn’t as simple as sitting on a screened in porch listening to crickets chirp in the corn fields that surrounded our home. Years later, after getting married and having babies, life sure did show me what hectic really meant.
But still, I long for simple. Still, this life I live is the most beautiful thing I could’ve ever imagined.
You see, the simple life isn’t simple at all. There are gardens to tend, babies to raise, and livestock to steward. There are floors that need sweeping, dishes to be washed, and clothes to be mended. There are losses, and gains––successes and failures.
. . . and I want to talk about them all.
Let me preface this with the reality that, because I am a woman, so much of this new adventure I’m about to share with you is aimed towards women. But men may absolutely enjoy many of the topics as well!
As a homesteading mama, wife, entrepreneur, and Christian, I know how important it is to find your tribe within a large community as a woman. But more importantly, how hard it is to find a tribe rooted in fierce, non-judgmental, spiritual, and real life womanhood.
That’s why I’m starting the Choosing Simple podcast. A place where we get to talk all about the real life emotions, situations, successes, and failures of this homesteading mama, woman, and entrepreneur lifestyle. We’re going to get down and dirty with real life topics, discussions, and everyday life. We’re going to talk about how this simple life can be anything but simple, but learn how a “simple life” is something we have to choose to live, even in our everyday decisions.
When we could choose to make things more complicated than they should be…when we need to know how to make wise decisions…or when we just need to hear someone say “I’ve been there”.
I also can’t wait to talk to you about everyday homesteading life, like gardening, food preservation, raising homestead kids, the farmhouse kitchen, how-tos, and more!
It’s a compilation of everything I’ve ever wanted to talk about in one platform. Because you know what, this homesteading life isn’t just about gardening and livestock. Especially not in the life of a woman.
The best part of it all? I can’t wait to share stories with you. I am a storyteller by passion, and I love hearing and sharing other people’s stories. My hope is to bring personalized interviews to you from women, mamas, and homesteaders that are in love with this simple life just as much as the rest of us.
What you can expect to hear on the podcast:
- Homesteading topics and how-tos (livestock, gardening, and more!)
- Real life mom life
- Discussions about being a simple woman in a busy world
- Discussions about real life––marriage, finances, emotions, and more

. . . and so much more!
