Treasures of Knowledge

Sharing what I gather…


I believe one of the most amazing ways of learning is from each other. I strive to live by the ancient midwifery mantra of “Each One, Teach One.”
For the last 22 years, I have been passionate about the learning and teaching of herbs, essential oils, food as medicine, energy medicine, home education and deliberate mothering. I have found great joy and truly treasures of knowledge from learning about these modalities. I love teaching and I love learning from others. I am the mother of 6 unique children and the wife to one supportive husband. ♥

“And shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures; And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint.”

The School Room: My Life In Lego’s


There is a classic toy that I think should be a valuable part of every household with children. Lego’s. Yes, there are many parts. Yes, they multiply like mold on cheese. Yes, they can be expensive, messy, the bane of your existence, and your vacuum, and yes, because of their bright colors are usually easy to spot when changing a diaper.

The Stillroom: Let’s Talk about Herbal Tea

One of my FAVORITE ways to get herbs into my kids is herbal tea. Herbal tea is often misunderstood. Herbal tea is really not a tea at all. It is an infusion or tisane. Herbal tea is not usually made from the tea plant (camellia sinensis) at all, though read the labels of your tea to make sure black tea is not included if you are staying away from it.

The School Room: Mastering the Simple Life


Over a month ago, as the board for our commonwealth school (homeschool group) gathered for a meeting, a topic was suggested for our monthly mom’s meeting. The topic was one that I have continued to a struggle with myself, yet somehow has never come up in group conversation. I don’t know why. Did it seem too big to voice? Was I scared of the answer? Was there an answer? Continue reading “The School Room: Mastering the Simple Life”

The Kitchen Table: Roasted Garlic

Roasted garlic used to seem so fancy to me. It has since become one of my favorite things to do for a myriad of uses. My favorite way to roast it is to cut off the top of the head of garlic, drizzle with olive oil and sea salt, and place face down on parchment at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or so. This eliminates the need to wrap them individually in foil. Continue reading “The Kitchen Table: Roasted Garlic”

Deliberate Mothering: Gift From the Sea

Gift From the Sea
I am convinced my body is made mostly of salt water, that sand should always be underfoot, and that the sound of the ocean is one of the most beautiful sounds ever. My mom is from Southern California, so the beach has always been a large part of my life. Though most family members that lived by the sea have moved or passed away, my sister still lives there, and so trips to the beach have become traditions for my children as well.
