About Me

I'm a stay-at-home wife, mom of seven--both birth and adopted, foster mom, and grandma.  My faith in a Personal Savior drives me daily to better myself so that I can better serve Him in all I do.  I spent 28 years in early childhood education and then social work, and then left my career at 49 to stay home with three special needs foster kiddos, whom we are now adopting.  We raise our own beef, chicken, and eggs on our small farm in northeastern Indiana.  I love gardening, sewing, homemaking in general, and swinging on the swingset with the children.  As of March 2014, I am down 46 pounds from about a year ago, and in the best physical shape I have ever been in my life.  Whole30 changed my life so drastically that Dallas and Melissa used my testimony in their book!  It took me a couple of years to fully implement it all, but I am walking proof that the paleo diet and the Whole9 lifestyle WORKS!  I am a grateful follower.
