Start Here

You want to be a homemaker AND a homeschooler AND a homesteader without losing your mind?

I’m Heidi, and I’m here to help.

After marrying my studly backyard lumberjack husband many moons ago (when we were both in the military),  I happily settled in to the role of homemaker. I had pretty much zero skills at the beginning, but after a few years of struggling - with know-how and with guilt -  I realized that the Army had given me more than great abs - they had given me the skills to manage a group of unruly people, and keep a small platoon running like clockwork. Now I’m a 40-year old mom to nine fun, highly energetic “outdoorling” kiddos, age 18 - 1. We’ve been classically homeschooling them since the beginning (and have graduated one so far). We also homestead a small patch of woods in Ohio, where we’re aspire to become self-sufficient and live beyond off-grid. I make lots of mistakes, but know that God is full of even more grace. My life goal is to make my home a place where that grace shines through!

I wrote Bootcamp for Lousy Housekeepers after talking to lots of tired, overwhelmed stay-at-home moms who had big dreams for making their homes a haven, but lacked the know-how to make it happen. It breaks my heart to see women who so desperately love being at home but feel like they’re somehow failing at it.

I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been learning about homemaking, homeschooling and homesteading, while giving you a peek into our crazy large-family farm life! We’re going to have fun!

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Go grab yourself a copy of Bootcamp and a cup of coffee, and let’s get started!

Then come back here to see how we incorporate Bootcamp into our life everyday. I can’t wait to hear how your home is growing in grace!
