A little background:
My journaling began as a way to record the daily happenings in my life. I used this space as a forum to not only record day-to-day activity but also to communicate, in a few keystrokes, to my family and friends. Recently, I have been feeling convicted to be less transparent online about my personal life and instead write about things that I am comfortable sharing with the big broad world at large. This shift in focus for this journal has been a long time coming and is happening none to early or late.
My one disclaimer is that the things I express here are often times from thought to keyboard. Without a lot of extra filtering. If I ever offend you, please let me know. But, please, also understand that since this is, first and foremost, my journal I reserve the right to change or NOT change the content. As easy as it is to find me, it’s just as easy to move along.
A little bio:
My husband and I are raising our children in the great state of Texas. We have three daughters who, at the time of this writing, are 5, 3 and almost 2 years old. Our newest addition, our little boy, joined our family recently. Rounding out our family of six. For reference my eldest daughter I call “DD1″ and my middle child I call “DD2″ and my third baby girl is known as “DD3″ and our son is “DFS3.”
If I were to sum up this journal in a string of words, those words would include: Mothering, Grace, Christian, Crunchy, and a tad bit Eccentric. I am someone who enjoys crafting and learning new arts. I’m not much of a cook, but I do enjoy making my own yogurt and sprouting my own beans.
Earlier last summer, my husband and I realized that our diet needed a serious overhaul. We were allowing our family to exist on a menu of junk and psuedo healthy foods. The imbalance in nutrition has led us down the road of re-discovery and currently we’re investigating some of the nutritional information of Traditional Foods. Part of our dietary changes include introducing Raw Milk into our diet as well as free-range eggs. We’re eating more protein and fewer carbs and refined sugars. Our goal is to eat veggies with every meal, Cod Liver Oil in the morning with OJ, and each day receive some outdoor activity time. I’m hoping that the record of these changes, as documented by this journal, will help other families who are attempting to do what we are doing. Maybe through our experience you won’t feel as overwhelmed as we do by it all.
