nourishedchildren is a community seeking to encourage and inspire mamas to bring wellness into their families. We also strive to provide resources in the form of tips, lists, how tos, recipes, learning guides and book recommendations. You mamas are trying the best you can everyday with your little ones. It takes a village to build one another up to continue offering the best we can to our families. We hope to foster an amazing community of nourishedchildren and their mamas to help you on your journey! Check out our daily schedule here.
I’m the blessed mama of two amazing boys, Hudson (age 4.5) and Jude (age 3). I’m honored to homeschool my preschoolers. We aim to slow down, lead a natural life, spend time in nature, and honor the ordinary, simple moments together as a family. I follow a Charlotte Mason style of education and am currently using the Peaceful Preschool curriculum. I’m a monthly subscriber to the Wild and Free bundles, and attend their free monthly groups because they are a wonderful, beautiful homeschool community.
I teach barre3 classes part time and my kiddos can come to work with me when needed. I’m 500 Hour RYT yoga certified and taught classes before having my children. Also, although I have never taught in a public school, I hold an elementary teaching certificate.
When you spend quality time with your children, it also helps them feel secure, comforted, and serves to create a strong bond and relationship to last a lifetime.
- My husband and I have been married for 10 years and we were married at Turtle Bay on Oahu, Hawaii.
- We tried for more than three years to get pregnant with our first son. When my first son was nine months old, we got pregnant with our second son!
- We live on 10 acres in the Texas hill country. Our home won best custom home, best master bath and best kitchen for the Builders Association in the area. Our house has been photographed and it will be potentially placed in several Architectural magazines around the world!

CHILDREN IN THE KITCHEN
It is not always easy to lead a nourished life, however, it is highly worth the effort to provide the best you can for your family. Sharing the kitchen with my children is one of my greatest joys. I love watching them develop a curiosity and interest in food preparation. They want to have their hands on the foods, they want to participate and help, and its relevant because these skills will be helpful to them as they grow. When they take an interest in our kitchen, they are exposed to a variety of healthy foods. Since they are naturally curious about the food they are holding, smelling, testing, and preparing, our children often want to try some of the foods they have had a hand in preparing. My boys are great eaters and I hope we can inspire your family to nourish their bodies too!
When we create a family culture centered around nourishment for our children’s bodies and minds, we forage a special bond with them that may last for a lifetime.
