Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here and seeking the best health for your family. I’m a Christian, a wife, a (very seasoned!) homeschool mama of three, and borderline obsessive about all things healthy living! My two oldest sons have graduated from LaValley Academy 😀 and our daughter Mia is a middle schooler (my co-blogger who contributes on Creative Kid’s Corner!) I’m a Registered Nurse turned health coach, and my passion is educating moms about nutrition and wellness. Mamas, we help determine the health and future of our kids!
We all have a health journey and a story to share. My health journey began in my late 20’s after having been diagnosed with fibromyalgia at just 22 years old. You remember me mentioning I was a RN- well, sad to say, the Western medical system is taught zero about nutrition in school, but only knows how to prescribe something or cut it out to cure what ails you! I had been eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) and my idea of cooking from scratch was opening a box of Hamburger Helper! Yikes… it took me a few years to realize that the many fake ingredients I was consuming could be contributing to my muscle soreness, so I resolved to learn to cook from scratch (for real!) and get rid of anything I couldn’t pronounce on a label. I’m blessed that the Lord led me to this realization when my boys were only toddlers so that healthy foods became a part of their lives early on. Over the years, I kept learning more and more about nutrition and enjoyed teaching classes at church and at our homeschool co-op, so much so that I became a certified holistic health coach!
What is your story? Whether you are looking for healthier ways to clean your home, seeking to work with me as a health coach, needing homeschool support, or just needing some healthy kitchen tips, I’m glad you’re here! But if you are frazzled, burned out and not feeling like you are thriving as a wife or mom, let this be a safe place for you. You’ll learn that my health philosophy is one of constant learning, gentle guidance, and for sure no guilt allowed! Boy do I have the stories to share of how I’m surprised my oldest is even alive with all I did to him! But Mama, you are only responsible for what you know at the time, so please be gentle on yourself and willing to learn! I’m honored you’re joining me in the journey!
