Who We Are

Jennifer Self is a disciple of Jesus Christ who loves following His plan for her life as a wife to the most wonderful man in the world and mama to four little blessings. Her days are filled with spending time with her man, homeschooling, preparing reasonably healthy meals and keeping the dust bunnies and the clutter monster at bay with a little writing mixed in. She began this blog in 2009 to inspire women to love the calling God has placed upon their lives.

Jessica Geise is a follower of Jesus Christ, the wife of an amazing husband, and the mother of four children who are the loves of her life. She is passionate about homeschooling, enjoys spending time with her family more than anything else,  would rather buy a new book than new clothes, is always starting on a diet, and thinks that chocolate is the next-best medicine to laughter. Other than reading, her favorite hobbies are music, decorating, blogging, and making attempts at photography. She blogs about this, that, and the other at www.itsthelittlethings4.blogspot.com

Joanna LaVan is a child of the King, wife to her incredible husband, adoring aunt "nana" to her four favorite little people, and Pastor's wife to their Church people in Virginia.  Her desire is to share with the world the wonderful reality of sins forgiven.   In her spare time she enjoys Kayaking, reading, occasional scrapbooking, cleaning, blogging, and spending time with her wonderful family.  She blogs about her life's happenings, and passions at www.lukeandjoannalavan.blogspot.com .

Judy Hoch is a wife of eighteen years and a stay-at-home mother of seven. She writes about homemaking, homeschooling, and large-family living at Contented at Home.

Tonya Hamilton is a child of the Heavenly Father.  She has a devoted, fun-loving husband who always brings joy in her life especially knowing he is God’s chosen one. She loves knowing she is in the center of God’s will by being a minister’s helpmeet. This keeps her busy along with endeavoring to guide the footsteps of her precious 4 blessings that God has given.  She spends her days attempting to keep chaos from reigning in their hectic-paced lifestyle with homeschool being first-priority along with cooking, cleaning, children’s church involvement, Sunday School teaching, church missionary president, or any responsibility that is given to her. If a quiet moment presents itself, she loves to read or check out deals online. She absolutely adores finding  a good deal that saves money and will share it with any willing listener. Couponing is one of her avid interests or any kind of shopping! But better than that is time spent with family and knowing that God loves her in spite of her faults. 

 Marion Yoder is a second-generation home-schooling mother of 5 little people. She and her husband, Joseph, live and work on his family's 190 acre farm in Holmes County, Ohio. Marion started early with her love of all things natural, especially food, and has been learning more ever since. The Yoders raise bees, cattle, sheep, chickens, and heirloom veggies on their sustainable farm. Their goal is to provide local families with affordable foods raised  the way God designed them to be. They sell their wares at area farmers markets, as well as at the small store located on the farm. 

Shawna Wright is a mom of four (ages 4-15) and wife of one magnificent example of all of the fruits of the Spirit.  She lives in Gardner, Kansas, where she homeschools, keeps house, and cares for her husband Michael as he faces a battle with cancer.  Once in a while she fits in working with the children at her church, entertaining friends and family, and dreaming about her hobbies!  She is a recipient of much of God’s grace, blessing, and patience and is (on most days) looking forward to what God has in mind for her family next!
