Who we are...

We are a family is raised on Love…

Conservative, Christian, Pro-Family, Pro-Life, Natural,  Attachment, Conscious parenting/living family!

In a nutshell, we believe that marriage is between a Man and Woman...  Children are an heritage of the Lord - each one, a blessing & precious gift of God... Life begins at conception...  and when it comes to the fate of an unborn child, "Choice" is murder. 

But at the same time... with practices & beliefs  such as ::
  Natural Childbirth/Homebirth ~  Lactivism ~ Babywearing ~ Cloth diapering ~ Natural Infant Hygiene (ie Elimination Communication) ~ Co-sleeping: Sharing a family bed ~ Anti-CIO ~ Baby signing (ASL) ~
Conscious & Gentle parenting with Graced-based & loving discipline ~ Simple living ~ Natural/safe/Green Cleaning ~ Healthful, partial-organic. whole food eating ~ anti-vaxing ~ natural/alternative/ holistic medicine (incl Chiropractic!) ~ Intactivism ~ Natural Family Planning (seeking the Lord, as to the size & timing of our family) ~  and Homeschooling (somewhat unschooling).

We are  what some might call Crunchy.... weird, strange, crazy, fanatical,  over-analytical,  anti-mainstream, kinda hippy, or any other synonym you could apply therein. :)  We definitely go against the social "norm"... as we strongly feel it is every parent's responsibility to educate themselves and do their research. Doctors have their place for some things... but only you can know what's best for yourself & your family! Every choice/decision you make should be an educated one! (Do your own research! Don't just take someones word for it! - and that includes that of medical personal!!)

Our main goal is to build a biblical foundation of faith, through Christ-centered training

Striving towards having a Godly, Christian heritage; &  a close knit family team... It's our desire to raise up children who are empathetic  to and respectful of others; willing servants, disciples, and follower of Christ;  and capable, productive, and influential members of society.

So all in all....  while we tend to sway away from mainstream ways in many areas of our parenting & life choices... our main desire is to follow the Lord's leading & what our hearts are telling us is best for US.  Of course, like for everyone... it is a journey. One that takes us to different places at different paces. But as long as your are moving forward... *that* is what's most important!

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." - Proverbs 22:6


I am a 26-year-old homeschool grad, a chocoholic, and aspiring photographer.... with a love for coffee & tea which, according to my hubby, "borders on an obsession".  ;-) Living my dream as a  wife, homemaker, and stay-at -home mommy...  I am helpmeet to my childhood  adversary, turned love, "B"  Mommy, to my beautiful, precious daughter "KB" (born at home, Aug '07)  ♥ and "pack-leader" to our two Italian Greyhounds, Sicily & Siena
My passions & interests are vast and ever evolving, but include: :  Music * Working with youth/teens * church ministry *  Photography * Going to mommy/baby groups of interest * Attachment and Natural parenting * Babywearing * Natural/Alternative Medicine techniques * Learning * Being Green * 'Most anything Domestic * Cooking * Baking * Quality Time * Coffee * Tea!! * Keva Juice  (smoothies)  * Making memories * Family * Laughter * Love *  Encouraging words * hugs * Northwoods * Fall * Cool-weather * Long-sleeves *   Long, relaxing walks * Sunsets   * the Beach * soaking up the sun * sunny days * Starry nights * Bonfires * Christmas * Being in love with my best-friend * Caring for our beautiful daughter <3 * And  practicing a conscious paradigm!

One of my passions is learning ways to be live a more "green" lifestyle. Our society as a whole is very wasteful...  and going green is a great reminder of how we should  be more prudent & economical with the resources of which we are blessed to have! God has given us this beautiful earth to live on... and I feel we ought to be better stewards of and take more responsibility for it's care!  

Health & nutrition is another avid interest of mine.  I love trying new recipes, cooking REAL food, and making things from scratch! My mission is to make our meals the most healthful I can... while still remaining within the parameters of our smaller, one-income budget. Though feeding my family a completely all-natural/organic diet, would be ideal (and absolutely wonderful!)... I realize the opportunity to grow in Faith by trusting in the Lord to provide for our needs, it so much more important!
