As we celebrated Father’s Day yesterday, I wanted to share my thoughts about something I feel very strongly about. Today, more than ever with society unleashing so many things as a norm that was once considered offensive, our boys need good men for role models. The role of the man in a house is very […]
It can be SO overwhelming when you are starting out as a homesteader or off-grider! The rewards are incredibly great when you partake such a life, but it takes a lot of planning and even preparation to embrace such a lifestyle. Instead of allowing yourself and your family to hit overload or even decide this […]
Everyone today is running the rat race, filling every waking hour with busy. We embraced our off-grid lifestyle to create our own lifestyle in a crazy mixed up world. We were seeking a freedom and a pace that was to our liking, but when we first embraced our dream we hit the road running and […]
It is really easy to think we are prepared for anything, but are we really? It is important to live without fear as it is a waste of time and precious energy and to focus on being prepared. You will find great comfort in times of turmoil when you have already rehearsed things in […]
In my previous post, MORE Was My Catalyst, you read about how I got started on my journey and the progress made. Now that I have another year under my belt I still feel like there is so much to do. Initially, I thought that we’d be able to get everything how we wanted it […]
I am really excited to share some news with you!! Myself and my Mountain Man will be teaching two different workshops at the Sustainable Preparedness Expo in Spokane, WA this spring. Together, we will be sharing our knowledge and the importance of Wilderness Survival and also focusing on how we have chosen to make a living with Living It! Loving It and Making A Living! As you know we live 100% off-grid with solar power and are homesteading traditionally in northern Idaho and it is our passion and pleasure to help inspire and educate others to embrace a more preparedness and self reliant lifestyle!
Be sure to join us…
You will also be able to check out our handcrafted wares as well as all our survival tools in person at our booth.

Have you ever thought “There’s got to be more to life?” Yep, that’s where I was at September 2013. I was working a full-time job with a minimum two-hour commute daily and an elementary child in before and after school care (known as Latchkey here in our school system). I was dissatisfied with my job […]
The Mountain Man is always fabricating, creating and manufacturing useful items for our homestead. Sometimes it is necessary for us to manufacture things to fit our needs, to improve the modern day counterparts and to allow us to do unique and creative things here. Many of these tools will benefit you as well so once we […]
We typically write and video things that are happening on the homestead to share and educate our audience. This is a bit of a different season for us. Although we still have projects and we are living life, we are also dealing with an unexpected setback and illness. This season has also brought lessons to […]
There is something to be said about the warmth and comfort of a wool, alpaca and natural fibers, right? Wool is an amazing God-given resource that repels water, is amazingly warm and extremely durable. We have a lot of varying wool products on our homestead such as socks, blankets, sweaters, gloves and mittens, pants, skirts, […]
