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.

Kathy & Melinda recommend these 3 posts:

  7. Such an awesome concept for a blog! I have a good friend that grew up with a negative mother figure and I think a site like this is great for women in her shoes when motherhood is upon them. In a way, I’m sure we all have to figure out what works best for us… but a little guidance never ever hurts! Keep up the awesome work :)


    • {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!
