Back to Eden Gardening

I’ve always been a fan of the idea of having a garden, being able to pick fresh veggies and fruit right out of my backyard and getting to play in the dirt. I’m less a fan of the idea of the time and labor investment however, I just don’t have the patience and dedication for […]

Taking notes from nature

I recently read an article on Medium called Nature: the coolest startup in the world that highlights the innovative and sustainable design of nature. What is brilliant is how she applies this design to business startups. Nature’s design is time-tested and proven, why not take notes from it? “From a systems perspective, mother nature is […]

Milk kefir I’ve tried a few times, and enjoyed it but would grow tired of it quickly when I’m the only one consuming it, plus it’s a lot of milk to go through on a daily basis! Then I heard of water kefir. There are actually separate water kefir grains, but you can also convert […]

Jack Andrew Kuth

Born August 23rd 2:46pm, weighing 9lbs 15oz, and measuring 20 3/4″ long exactly like his daddy. He was born at home, on land instead of a waterbirth as planned, though we ended up at the hospital due to me hemorrhaging. I lost a fair amount of blood, just shy of needing a transfusion, so my […]

The root cause of Ryan’s autoimmune crisis

Preface: We got married in November. Since January, Ryan hasn’t been able to sleep in our home with me due to extreme sinus pressure, fatigue, headaches, and insomnia. For months we didn’t know what was wrong. In March we moved into a new home, hoping we were leaving behind the mold, dust mites, chemicals, or […]

Tended by the Gardener

The more I grow up and go through different experiences in life, and the more I’m learning about our physical health and how God has designed our bodies to work, the more this picture becomes clear to me, and the more I long to share it! I am like a plant; my life, body, heart, […]
