I’m a wife. I enjoy being married to my best friend, Caleb. He not only encouraged me to start this blog, but he even designed and built the website for me. We have been happily married for almost two years!
I’m a homemaker. I enjoy cooking, cleaning, shopping, saving money, and building relationships with friends and family. Now, before you get all weird on me because I just said I enjoy cleaning….There are a few chores which I dread. (I don’t know anyone who enjoys scrubbing the toilet or washing out the trashcan.) However, I do enjoy organizing, decorating, and cleaning to create a peaceful, homey environment.
I’m a real foodie. Yes, I love food without preservatives, made fresh and prepared with care! Organic and all- natural? Yes please! (Just like me. )
I’m a researcher. All my life I have been a voracious reader. My focus has been on the areas that interest me most. Since I’ve gotten married, my passion for homemaking has quickly turned into a passion for creating healthy, simple living. I wasn’t always this way. I used to think that I was taking pretty good care of myself by eating my veggies and avoiding things like sugar and fat.
Then I met my mother-in-law, and all these things changed. She was always talking about “organic” this and “organic” that. And about how coconut oil and butter are good for you (gasp – Not saturated fats! ). My husband’s family went to a farmer and bought a cow instead of buying beef from the store. They all drank out of glass bottles. I could go on, but you get the point.
So I began to ask myself: What does this all mean? That’s when I started doing my own research, simply out of curiosity. I am amazed at what I didn’t know, and that is a big reason why I started this blog. The more I learned, the more God showed me the connection between healthy physical living and healthy spiritual living. You really can’t separate them.
There you go. Now you know a little bit about me. I started this blog to talk about things that I am interested in, and hopefully to spark conversations and meet people. I wanted a way to chronicle the research I’m doing and the ways I am implementing it into my life. Since I’m still learning, I definitely don’t have “it” all together yet. But I like helping people draw closer to God, live a healthier life, and see the connection between the two.
I’d love to have you join me as I learn more about God, healthy living, and homemaking.
