    116. Embracing the Simplicity of Winter on the Homestead | Melody Haege of Renaissance Woman MN

    Winter on the homestead is a time of natural slowing down.  The days are shorter; the list of projects is smaller.  After my conversation with Melody, I’m not sure I know of anyone who embraces all of the beauty that winter brings better than she does.  As a homesteader, homeschooler, homemaker, and hunter in Minnesota, Melody doesn’t let temperatures below zero keep her from enjoying the outdoors with her five children.  No matter what climate you live in, Melody shares tons of ideas for embracing the winter season both indoors and out.

    In this episode, we cover:

    - How homeschooling allows the freedom to teach our children specific life skills

    - What food Melody is hunting and cooking in winter

    - Why you should want to know where your food comes from

    - Secrets to enjoying frigid temperatures

    - How Melody instills basic outdoor survival skills in her young children

    - Preparing for winter on a homestead

    - Outdoor and indoor hobbies in the winter

    - What it looks like to experiment with sourdough

    GUEST BIOGRAPHY

    Melody lives in the Minnesota Big Woods. She is a mother of five, a wife, a baker, archer, homesteader, and more. Her goal is to help people learn the old ways of working, making, and doing.

    115. Where to Start with Natural Living, Cooking from Scratch, Holistic Health | Elizabeth Parsons of Purely Parsons

    115. Where to Start with Natural Living, Cooking from Scratch, Holistic Health | Elizabeth Parsons of Purely Parsons

    EPISODE SUMMARY

    It can be overwhelming to figure out where to start in your natural living journey.  I get asked all the time, “Where should I start?”  On today’s episode, I am talking to Elizabeth Parsons of Purely Parsons about this exact question.  We have both been living a natural lifestyle for over a decade, and if there is anything we have learned, it’s that this is truly a process.  It’s unrealistic to overhaul our entire way of life overnight, but there are so many small changes we can make gradually over time that will add up to a new lifestyle.  I’m so grateful Elizabeth joined me for this conversation.  As a homeschooling, homesteading mama of five and pediatric nurse, she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this topic.  Whether you are just getting started or have been living this way for many years, I hope some of the information shared in this episode serves as the catalyst for you to take the next step in your natural living journey.

    In this episode, we cover:

    - Starting small by making easy swaps in your home

    - What resources we used to start learning and researching

    - The importance of whole foods in natural living

    - How we handle criticism from others about this lifestyle

    - Success stories of healing our bodies naturally, apart from allopathic medicine

    - What foods you can start making today in your home

    - The most important items in Elizabeth’s wellness toolbox

    114. Decluttering and Moving Towards Minimalism | Dawn Madsen of The Minimal Mom

    Click here to watch this episode on YouTube.

    At the beginning of a new year, many of us are thinking about decluttering our homes.  That’s why I am so excited to bring you this conversation with Dawn of The Minimal Mom.  Dawn has shared over 500 videos on her YouTube channel on minimalism, decluttering, and organization, but you don’t have to want to be a minimalist to benefit from her message.  Listen in as Dawn and I both share how our journeys toward living with less stuff became our normal way of life.

    In this episode, we cover:

    - What to do with sentimental items

    - A new way to view items in your home

    - Decluttering as a frugal person

    - What to do with items you aren’t quite ready to part with

    - How to change your mindset while shopping

    - Shaping your kids’ view of material possessions

    - Dawn’s top three tips for getting started with decluttering

    Dawn is married to Tom, and they have four kids ages seven through 12. They’ve called themselves minimalists for about seven years and couldn't imagine living any other way. Because it's had such a positive impact on their lives, they enjoy sharing tips and tricks to help you simplify your home quickly too.

    112. Getting it all Done, Setting Priorities Rebelling Against Mediocre Motherhood with Abbie M is for Mama

    112. Getting it all Done, Setting Priorities Rebelling Against Mediocre Motherhood with Abbie M is for Mama

    I just loved this discussion with Abbie, from M is for Mama. She is a mom of 10, with four of those being two sets of identical twins! She graciously shares her evolution as a mom, what got her through the harder seasons and how she is able to take things in stride with the perspective that comes from seeing some of your kids grow beyond the baby phase. She has so much wisdom to share with all of us!
