I am, most importantly, a believer in Christ and I see everything through eyes that know that our Creator loves us and is intimately involved in our daily lives. None of the “passions” in my life fall outside of my relationship with Him, so don’t be surprised if I mention His amazing gift of comfrey or how the food He gave us can’t be improved upon by scientists!

My husband, Kevin, and I have been married for fifteen years! We met on my sixteenth birthday and we didn’t see each other again until he made a quick trip over Spring break to visit me in England in 2001. On day five of his visit, he proposed. Yep, we’re kinda crazy! 😉

We have a nine-year-old girl, who has chosen to go by the name of “Pumpkin” for blogging purposes. We welcomed our second daughter “Babykins” at the end of November, 2011. We had a beautiful birth in our home with a midwife attending.

I’m one of those people that just jumps right into whatever I’m excited about. Learning is one of my main passions. I LOVE to learn! I might border a bit on obsessive when I get excited about a project, but something really wonderful usually comes out of it in the end. My current obsessions/interests are:

  • “Real” food
  • Natural health (especially herbs)
  • Minimalism
  • Decluttering/Simplifying
  • Parenting/homeschooling
  • Natural pregnancy and home-birth
  • Organic gardening
  • Natural cleaning and personal care products (homemade!)
  • Arts and crafts

Although I call my blog Creative Christian Mama, it isn’t primarily about arts & crafts. I believe that we are all meant to live creatively, since we were designed in the image of God, the Creator. That creativity can manifest in different ways for different people… but I KNOW that this is a post in and of itself!

I hope you enjoy the thoughts and ideas I share here and that you are inspired to live creatively. Please consider subscribing to my e-mail or RSS feed!

Thanks for being here and enjoy your visit!

  1. Hello,

    I’m the assistant of Jenni Wilson who runs a small growing blog through momessentials.net. We were wondering what your advertising information entails (Price wise, e-book products that could be reviewed, & giveaways). Thanks in advance for reading this.

    • For immediate relief, some organic prune juice diluted with warm water should help. For long term, if it’s frequent, she probably is having trouble digesting something she eats regularly. If it was one of my girls, I’d first make sure she wasn’t getting any artificial colors/flavors/additives or highly processed foods. If that didn’t help, I’d remove all dairy except for cultured (yogurt and kefir) and give it a week to see if that’s the problem. If there was still no improvement, I’d remove all dairy and then try removing grains for a week. That would be a mostly meat, eggs, fruit and veggies diet and it *should* take care of the problem. After that, I’d add one category back in each week or two and see when the problems start again. My best guess would be processed dairy (pasteurized milk, especially) or a diet that is too heavy in grains for her digestive tract.
      I hope that helps! 🙂

    • LOL! That’s because we’re mostly working on things under the house, like repairing/replacing duct-work and insulating pipes. The crawlspace is so tiny that there really isn’t any way to get good pics of what my fearless hubby is doing. 😉 I promise to start posting pics again as soon as we’re doing anything above ground! Thanks so much for your comment, Rebecca!!

    I have tried to order your products, however each time I put something in my cart it tells me is is out of stock. Can you please help me? My Email address is above and I will wait to hear from you Thank you

    • Hi Laura! With the way that store-bought eggs are processed, I honestly would not trust them to be safe. I would suggest waiting until you can find a local farm where they allow the hens to be free-range and don’t feed them soy and antibiotics. Here is a great website to help you find somebody in your area, but also farmer’s markets (when the weather is warmer and they are open) are a great place to buy them, if you’ve checked out the farm to make sure the chickens are healthy. It’s often more convenient, since they are in town. 🙂

    Hi! I saw one of your previous blog posts about raw milk – and am looking for a farmer that can provide my family with some. Can you point me in the right direction. Rawmilk.com was a wash for us. We are in the Sioux falls area. Feel free to shoot me an email. Thanks so much!!!

    I didn’t read the directions all the way through and added my store-bought cold milk from the fridge to my buttermilk I just separated when I made better. What can I do with this mixture now?
