My Story

I was raised a pastor's kid all over the southeast. I dropped out of college to go to Bible school where I met my husband. We planned to have a bajillion kids but decided that five was good. 

I'm a former homeschooler. Now our family does some kind of hybrid between public school and homeschool (see definiton #3 above). We also have a great admiration for both donuts and kale. It's called balance.

I recently sold my business, that I had built from the ground up, to get a degree and certification in midwifery for home birth (see #1). I apprentice with two seasoned midwives and study, study, school's your buddy on the side. 

I am constantly chased by grace and I am so relieved to tell you that God is so good that I don't have to try so hard to be good myself. 

You might find me hanging out in tattoo shops, attending Bible study, or diagraming vaginas in Starbucks (see #2).

You can follow me @fearlessmamma on Instagram (and @theperiodstore too!).

I recently lost eight years worth of blogs, so I'll be adding them manually here, as I find them. Wish me luck.
