Hey, Busy Friend!

I see you trying to do all the things. You want a more natural lifestyle for your family, and animals, but you’re just a little overwhelmed.

I’ve been where you are…too many irons in the fire and still feeling like you need to do more. Take a moment, and a deep breath, and think about this.

It’s time to slow down just a bit.

Take a deep breath.

Let’s figure out what’s most important to you.

Hi! I’m Deborah!

In addition to being a wife, mother, and now grandmother, I’m a Natural Health Educator and creator of the Working Woman’s Guide to Natural Living and future Redefining Homesteading Podcast. We are a homeschooling family and have a ranch in East Texas. I also coordinate a living history event each year where I portray an herbalist from the 1800s.

I would love to learn more about you! Be sure to get my Free Guide to Salves and Balms which will include emails from me so we can get to know each other better.

My first recommendation for you: Pause all the googling and searching for how to ______ and first focus on the one skill that matters most to your family. Another way to put it…what is one habit you would like to change first?

Secondly, realize that you don’t have to be “all in” on this idea. We will be picking and choosing what’s best for our family and our needs.

Are you ready to dip your toe in the water?

And if you happen to be curious about homesteading, then know this…

No. You don’t have to milk a cow, gather chicken eggs, or grow oodles of vegetables to create your own homestead.

(But, you can if you want to.)

To me, your homestead is where your heart is and you can make it your own. ~Deborah

This place has been in my family since about 1970.  I can remember coming out to see Grandma and Grandpa and how much fun we would have exploring the old cemetery across the road or venturing up into what we call the “upper 70” to check the cows and see Grandpa’s new, prize bull. My…

What is Real Food?

Have you ever heard the statement, “You are what you eat?” Well, it’s true. You know what I’m talking about if you’ve ever eaten something that your body didn’t agree with, which ended up making you blow up like a balloon…or worse. So, what are real foods? They are the whole, unprocessed, or minimally processed…
