Hi, I’m Jacqueline!
I’m so glad you’re here.
Welcome to my little place on the internet!
For 20 years before becoming a mom, I practiced as an RN with my background in acute care, primarily the cardiac OR.
But now, 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 desire 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.”
From this . . .
