For 20 years before becoming a mom, I practiced as an RN with my background in acute care, primarily the cardiac OR.
Home is where I love to be. I feel there is no greater place to incubate souls. These days you’ll find me using my experiences here to write about herbal remedies and natural health research – a big passion of mine.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamed about being a mom. I began mothering animal babies in my Nana’s backyard and eyes-still-closed newborn squirrels that dropped into my childhood home’s fireplace. And being the oldest, I loved helping my mother with my younger siblings.
After nearly 20 years of infertility, I was able to live my dream of motherhood and raising a family with my husband. Homeschooling was a great fit for us. Educating at home combined real life adventures, great books, a strong circle of friends, and a love for learning.
But being a wife and mother is not easy. It is challenging and potentially lonely. I get that. I wanted to create a place to connect with and support other moms for creating a natural, healthy, and fulfilling home life.
Interests for me are preventative natural medicinals, great books, medical research, working with special-needs children, healthy and green living, organic gardening and enjoying God’s creation.
Late in my life, but not before much damage and brokenness, I was transformed by a sovereign God to become a disciple of Jesus Christ. I am only able to grow at all because He feeds and leads me. I have experienced His abundant mercy and grace.
Now that our children are grown, I do more ministry with my husband of 42 years outside our home, but blogging is a way to share some of the useful things the Lord has shown me along the way. I encourage other ‘older women’ to see the need to speak into the younger woman!
“He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap…
He gives the barren woman a home,
making her the joyous mother of children.”
The habits of the home in one generation become the morals of society in the next. As William Ross Wallace said: “The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.” ~10 May, 1996 Washington Times
