My Story

Come with me to a quiet place where we can sit and chat…

In 2010, ensuing a lengthy and difficult conception with my first child, I tiptoed back into a natural lifestyle that had been shelved for many years to help deal with my painful cycles. Suddenly my health-minded upbringing came back to me like a tide. Over the next ten years, I forayed into a complete diet, home and personal care overhaul. I joined CSA’s, enthusiastically cooked up traditional meals, scrutinized makeup labels, found herbal substitutes for ailments, cleared out toxins from everything I could get my hands on, and wired our house in. My second child (pictured below) was conceived without trouble and was unbelievably healthy. 

Later, I attempted to conquer some of life’s biggest adult challenges including three family cancers through natural alternative health measures and a strong faith in the Lord. As a natural teacher, I found myself curating neat documents and binders running the gamut from detox smoothies to full-on meal plans in order to help heal my family. After years of learning, I dreamt of starting a blog to help others the way I’ve been helped and teach the practical everyday wellness tools I’ve learned. My prayer is to help YOU as well! And it starts? In the ground, right under the grass beneath your feet.

What can you learn from me?

I’m currently focusing on these main topics:

We live a Barefoot Grass Life…

BY THINKING ABOUT:
  • the natural, instead of the toxic 
  • whole, instead of the part 
  • the solution, instead of the bandaid
  • resting, instead of rushing 
  • the quiet, instead of the noisy 
  • the slow, instead of the busy             
  • being, instead of performing
  • herbs, instead of medicine
  • getting wild and adventurous!
  • prevention, instead of cures
  • the nourishment of well-being and longevity

Amy’s Bio

I’m a Minnesota-born, California exploring, Cape Town tromping Texan. I have traveled to over ten countries, partnered with a major Christian author, sold real estate in two US states, pastored a children’s church and have degrees in Theology/Christian missions, English and Business (dual B.A.& S.) and Real Estate (M.S.)  I enjoy homeschooling my two children, traditional cooking, kombucha brewing, and exploring the beautiful outdoors with my family and friends whenever possible. I am absolutely in love with the Lord and owe the creation of this business entirely to Him. I am grateful to my husband for his love, gentle strength and technical support;) My two children are my treasures and “happy helpers” as I often call them. We are a dual country family globetrotting between the USA and Cape Town, South Africa where my husband is from.
