I had the privilege of contributing to a magazine on newsstands now called New American Homesteader. As you can probably tell from the title, this magazine is all about taking little steps towards becoming a little more self-sufficient, no matter where you live, from gardening to raising chickens to making your own cleaners and more.
I think it's safe to say this is a topic that is a little dear to my heart since these are steps we are gradually taking on our little homestead. They have been very small steps so far, taken one at a time, but they have all been rewarding. I don't just speak of the natural benefits either, like homegrown produce and fresh eggs. It's so much more - spending time together as a family, enjoying nature, teaching our girls where our food comes from and responsibilities, learning to be more content and thankful for what we have, even in the simplest of things and not just material either.
There are a few photos you may recognize in the magazine and there's also a little feature on our family.
I'm thankful for opportunities like this that have come from my blog, but I want to mention again that I would not still be blogging today if it were not for you all. You'll never know how your thoughtful words have encouraged me.
Have a wonderful week!
