Take care of your body as if you were going to live forever; and take care of your soul as if you were going to die tomorrow.
~ St. Augustine
Hi there! I’m a mama of eight homegrown kids, wife to high school sweetheart, joy seeker, and tinkerer. I love to empower other mamas, find creative ways to reuse items and make things pretty. I’m a birth doula that supports families safely through the gentle, peaceful and joyful birth experience they deserve. I am compelled to share all that the good Lord has blessed me with.
I re-embarked on my journey of wellness in 2011. It started with a desire to live a more simple and natural lifestyle but was propelled by some serious health ailments, most of which have been done away with and the other lingering ailments have drastically improved. I continue along so that I can thrive to better fulfill my vocation.
I’m not an expert nor have I perfected this lifestyle. I’m just a mama and follower of Christ seeking to submit everything to Him. This is a place to share what I’m learning and report on what is working for me and my family.
You are invited to come along and share! I’d love to hear about your journey and what is working for you.
May we all glorify God with all we have and all we do.
ad Jesum per Mariam,
