 Natural Beauty  and Homemade Everything
It’s that simple. I am simplifying the ingredients in my family’s food and looking at natural ways to stay healthy (and therefore beautiful in a godly outlook of the term).

I also want to get back some of the knowledge of what is considered a simpler time. Anyone who looks into times gone by will see that life was simple in a lot of ways, but it was not easy. Simplicity should not be confused with ease and comfort. I want to continue to learn better how to grow my own food, make the things I use often – from lotions, perfumes, household cleaners, and soaps, to cheese.

Natural Beauty
Because of my beliefs about the importance of good ingredients, to the best of my knowledge and research, I will always make products that have the purest and best ingredients. Our skin is the biggest organ in our body, which is often forgotten with the amount of chemicals we spray and rub all over them. So, I spend time looking for unadulterated ingredients, research why those ingredients are considered not just ok, but healthy, and make all my products with love and care. Hey, my own family uses it all as well.

Real Food
I am trying to use foods that are less processed and that have less ingredients.  I am making more foods myself.  This does not always make my life more simple, but I have more peace of mind knowing that my family is eating foods that are increasingly better for them (as we all get used to eating differently).

I am also simplifying our foods because of allergies.  You will not find me using any soy products, and I will have egg alternatives to some recipes.  You can’t eat hardly anything store-bought and pre-processed if you have very many allergies.

I want my children to know how to take care of themselves, know what plants they can use for medicine, and how to make bread, etc. These are my desires, so I’m starting to put them down so hopefully others can learn from my experience and teach me from theirs.
