This is my journey into the ancient art of home domestication. A dying trade I am finding, but one that needs pushed to the front lines of every home in our nation. Three years ago I couldn’t tell you what a pressure canner looked like, much less what it was used for, but today I am saturating as many skills and know-hows of these classic homemaking methods to better provide for my family with what God has generously blessed us with. Our goal as a family is to become as self-reliant as possible. Not a foil hat wearing, sidewalk preaching “the world is ending” fanatic, I am concerned about what the next years will hold for our country and I want to be as prepared as possible for any outcome. After all this is how things were done in “the good ol’ days”. So why not apply them now?
I am a mother cubed. Three little girls under 3 and a husband of 3 years has certainly keep me busy. But these 3 magnificent minions and my hubbie are my motivating factors to becoming the healthiest momma and wife I can be, inside and out! First, let me say life is NOT perfect and neither am I! My passion is wholesome living and while I am still figuring this all out this is my space in the universe to hopefully help, motivate, inspire and maybe transform someone’s life out there.
