Some of my earliest memories are of my family’s garden and working along side my mother in that HALF ACRE GARDEN!!! The rows of green beans and corn seemed to go on forever when it came to weeding and harvesting. The conversations that I listened in on while I helped my mom and aunts snap peas were the kind that made a child day dream of the future. This is where I developed my love for gardening. I am still convinced that any problem can be sorted out over a bowl of snap peas.
About the Author
- Stacey Upchurch
My name is Stacey Upchurch and I am a wife and mother of four, beautiful girls. Our life is full of home-school shenanigans, raising organic plants and animals, health and fitness coaching, and sharing the love of Christ. I am currently enrolled in Trinity School of Natural Health and will be receiving my (ND) Doctor of Naturopathy Degree. Upon completion, I will pursue certification with the American Naturopathy Medical Accreditation Board (ANMCB). The good ol’ saying of…. you can take the girl out of the farm but you can’t take the farm out of the girl…is very accurate. I love the benefits my family receives from raising organic plants and animals. The circle of life on a farm is extremely rewarding. While living as chemically free as possible is our family’s goal, we do splurge every now and then. An important factor to a balanced life is reducing stress. As a result, we have found harmony in the structure we have set for ourselves. I am not a medical doctor or a veterinarian. Furthermore, I post only the lessons I have learned personally to help better someone else’s experience. Everyone needs to find a balance that works for them. In conclusion, I pray that I may inspire you to gain more control of your life and over-all health.
