Mothering From Scratch

Time to find our own recipe to mothering with a little help from the lovely ladies at Mothering From Scratch!

Do you feel like you’re mothering from scratch? Many of us grew up without a healthy mom role model to guide us in their mothering. Through well-chosen resources all of us can learn to find our own recipe — one that works for us and our families. The Good Book is our cookbook. With more than 33 years combined experience in the mothering mix, we felt we might have something valuable, or at the very least amusing, to contribute to the pot.

Kathy (the redhead ) mothers four kids ranging in age from late teens to early elementary years. Melinda (the brunette) is mother to an adorable middle-school-aged son and a beautiful and entertaining teenage daughter.

      {Melinda} Thanks so much for your kind words and encouragement, Sarah! You are so right — we all need guidance regardless of the quality of mothering we received! A lot is trial and error, but we can definitely learn from others’ mistakes. We’ll check out your blog, too!

    I really like your blog layout with the posts scrolling. I also found your content useful being a non-mom. :)

    Happy SITS Day! I love how your voice of reason, and especially how you tie in scripture. Looking forward to following your work when I need that boast of inspiration from veteran moms (I’m a confused first time mother).

      {Melinda} Thank you, Danielle! Yes, there is much to know before you have little ones, but you can never fully prepare. :) Eventually, you just have to dive in! It’s hard, but also so wonderful! Thanks so much for stopping by to see us!
