You balance so many responsibilities at home, but there’s a nagging worry that you’re not meeting everyone’s needs well enough, and meeting your own seems like an unattainable goal.
You desperately want your family to enjoy homemade meals, cooked from scratch and made of whole food ingredients, but you can’t spend hours in the kitchen.
You’d be thrilled if you could manage common ailments at home with natural remedies made from herbs and essential oils, but it all seems so complicated, money is limited, and there’s too much conflicting information out there.
You need a better way, a simpler way, to balance all of the needs around you so that you can enjoy the loving, healthy home you dream of, honoring the Lord as you serve your family.
You’re in the right place.
I believe that every mom has what it takes to nurture a thriving home, even if she doesn’t know it yet.
Momma friend, you are likely doing a much better job than you give yourself credit for. You may not have a completely natural, loving home yet, but with small, simple steps and the right perspective, you can find a better way.

I thought you were writing this about me when I read your article! I deal with much of the same thing and have to always ask the Lord to give me grace in this area as He is refining my heart.
This is such a great recipe! I have learned to love the fragrance and health benefits of true lavender.
Imagine Your Possibilities
For a moment, just think about that ideal home that you crave. Imagine,
- instead of always doubting yourself, you’re confident that you really can manage an orderly, godly, loving home.
- instead of struggling to make healthy recipes because it seems so expensive and complicated, you discover that simple, easy, and nourishing can all go hand in hand.
- instead of just being interested in natural remedies, you begin to put them to use in your own home because you are finally able to make sense of them all.
- instead of wishing you were the perfect organic Christian mom, you realize that God’s grace is all the perfect that you and your family need.

A Little About My Journey
The only thing I was certain of when I became a mom was that this brand new baby depended on me completely, and I had no idea if I could meet her needs. In time our family grew and my responsibilities multiplied. Healthy living was suddenly on my radar as I dabbled in the world of natural remedies, whole foods, and nontoxic homemaking so my family could be as healthy as possible.
With so much to balance, that nagging question remained: Could I really do all of this?
Little by little, step by step, I overcame my fears and insecurities and launched out into the brave world of confident motherhood. I read and researched and learned until I became an herbalist, able to keep my home and care for my family naturally. I tuned out the voices telling me what I should do and tuned in to the people in my home, finding simple solutions to my family’s needs.
Our home may not perfect, but by God’s grace, it is thriving.
Resources to Help You Along the Way
Because I believe that the Lord wants to guide us in every area of mothering and homemaking, I created Strengthening the Heart of a Homemaker. This devotional guide and printable set will help you connect with the Lord and hide God’s Word in your heart, even as you tend to the many needs in your home.
This devotional is so beautiful and practical, Kristen!
And since I have a passion for solid natural health information, I wrote the book Essential Oils: Separating Truth from Myth. It cuts through 25 common essential oil myths and gives you factual answers instead, taking the hype and confusion out of essential oils.
I am really excited to learn more about essential oils. My family and I are very new at leaving conventional medicine and turning to God given answers for good health. We are eating better and avoiding foods that do us harm and realized that our medicine cabinet needed an overhaul as well. I started to do some research online and there are many conflicting bits of information about essential oils. I’m so glad this book has become available to help keep it straight! Thank you, Kristen.
