Hey, Busy Friend!

I see you trying to do all the things.

Heck, I have 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 redefine homesteading.

Let’s put the HOME back into HOMEsteading and realize you don’t have to be a “homesteader” to learn a few skills. (Gasp! Yes, I said it!)

Hi! I’m Deborah, with Old Ways Made New.

I’m here to encourage you to first focus on the one skill that matters most…creating a naturally, healthier lifestyle for you and yours. It doesn’t matter where you live and you don’t have to be “all in”. Let’s just take a step towards being more RESILIENT.

Are you ready to dip your toe in the water?

And…No. You don’t have to milk a cow, gather chicken eggs, or grow oodles of vegetables.

(But, you can if you want to.)

Homesteading has grabbed the attention of thousands of women just like you – and for good reason.

It’s natural. It feels RIGHT. It’s good for your family – and good for you.

But HELLO, it’s not without a thousand questions, right?

  • How to make natural remedies…and are they safe and effective anyway…
  • How to design simple, but healthy meals…
  • How do I blend this lifestyle with running my own business…
  • Do I have to do it ALL or can I just do some of it?

If you’re like most women, you are overwhelmed with where to begin…

And for the love, where is the time and energy to do all of this anyway? There’s just So. Much. To. Do.

I get it because I’ve been there too. I’ve spent hours scouring the internet only to find myself even more overwhelmed…even with a B.S. Animal Science and a master’s degree in education. I remember wishing I could slow things down a bit but didn’t want to give up on the dreams that I knew God placed on my heart. Plus, I was dealing with a myriad of health issues all while trying to have enough energy to just get through the day.

It took me a few years and a lot of tears, but I was able to “trial and error” my way through things like:

  • Growing and raising some of our own food (I say some because let’s be real – who has time to do it ALL?)
  • Being able to read through the hype on food labels
  • Making a few natural remedies with herbs and oils
  • How to get organized and stop managing all the stuff so I can get routines in place.
  • Learning various ways to work from home

Then, I invested in a few online business courses and added an animal aromatherapy certification and now…

I’ve even managed to make some money working from home. Cha-ching! The hubs likes this one the best.

But here’s the thing:

Learning to do these things (and so much more) doesn’t mean you have to give up the peace of your home.

Natural living, homesteading and even homeschooling can be SIMPLE.

And it can feel really peaceful.

Hi! I’m Deborah and I have learned a few things over the years:

  • Your HOMEstead is where your heart is and you do get to pick and choose. (I think I just heard you breathe a sigh of relief!)
  • How to stop comparing ourselves to other people…grow from where you are right now
  • How to get out of our own way
  • How to embrace the change we may not know we need
  • Finding someone that can mentor you through this journey sure saves a LOT of time

Becoming the woman who can do all of those things has been a journey for which I’ll forever be grateful.

Today, along with building a more natural lifestyle while working from home, I teach women just like you how to do it too.

The reality is that as women, life throws us curveballs, but working women raising families with a more natural lifestyle approach those curveballs a little differently. Don’t you agree?

So, come on in! The water’s nice!

Let’s Work Together!
