I am married to my high school sweetheart and together we have 4 amazing children. JC and I have both become passionate about a more natural, or as I like to call it old fashioned, way of living. We recently moved to our forever farmstead, a 10-acre patch of land that we can call our own. We look forward to using as much of it as possible to provide for our family as naturally as possible, while being good stewards of the land that God has blessed our family with.


I remember being asked at a Bible Study group one night, “Who are you outside of being a Mom?” At the time I had completely lost sight of who I was, who I had hoped to be, I had lost the ability to dream. I was “just” a Mom, trying to get my footing back after finding out that a back injury would mean my husband was going to be retired from the military. In the midst of feeling like all our plans were going up in smoke, God relit a fire in me. Slowly, I started feeling like I had a purpose outside of “just” being a Mommy.

I hope this blog will serve as a way to share what we have learned with you also, no matter where you live. I hope it leaves you feeling encouraged and empowered, with a community cheering you on in whatever you are facing.

You won’t have to stick around long to learn that this Momma runs on Jesus, coffee, oils, and all things farmhouse-y. If that sounds like your cup of tea coffee than stick around, you are welcome here!
