Hello, I’m Rhoda!
I’m many things, as most moms are! I always start by saying that I’m one of God’s children saved by grace!
I’m a joy-filled person who loves to smile and loves people! I’m a wife to a supportive, Godly, husband who is a chiropractor/alternative medicine doctor (Thank the Lord because this momma needs those adjustments!) I’m a mom to 4 amazing children and a homeschool teacher. I love all things related to the Lord, children, learning, or anything about holistic, natural health!
My husband, Glenn, and I have lived in a few different states, including the sunshine state. We moved back home to the Midwest to be close to family, but I’d be fibbing, if I denied that every winter I questioned that decision!
I may occasionally refer to myself as being crunchy like a kettle chip. You just may find me using apple cider vinegar and coconut oil, or talking about homeopathics and herbs, at any given time. I have several cabinets full of them! My husband keeps us stocked! Also, in my pantry and refrigerator, you can find whole foods, and rarely anything with refined sugar! My daughter could tell you why to avoid sugar, while my son could tell you about how much lettuce mom uses. I’ve just recently started with sourdough as well. Stay tuned for that!
Homeschool learning was never in my plans, but as the saying goes, “…never say never.” God had other plans for me, and now I’m homeschooling my 4 kids, and learning along with them! I love watching them grow, and being able to spend so much time together!
I can usually be found teaching one of the kids, reading my Bible, listening to music while cooking, riding my Peloton, organizing and reorganizing my home (Yes, I have littles!), and rearranging rooms (I get that one from my mom).
I’m so happy you’re here, and I get to share with you what’s happening in our homefront!! I’ll be sharing natural, healthy living, homemaking, and food that benefits the body!
I graduated with a nursing degree, worked a few years as a trauma/ICU/ER nurse, and then decided it wasn’t for me. After my first child, I decided to stay at home with my baby. I’ve been a stay-at-home mom since!
My background was very medical-minded, but has changed drastically since my husband became a chiropractor/alternative medicine doctor. I have since realized the importance of health in a holistic, preventative way. I know that food is medicine, as is movement, sun, water, rest, reading the Bible, grounding, herbs, filling your mind with positive things, spending time with people you love and who love you, and herbs/homeopathics!
Talking and conversing are two of my favorite pastimes! That has always been my personality, and has never changed. When asked what talents I feel God has given me, one of the first things that comes to mind is what I like to call “the gift of gab.”
