I have a fantastic team of contributing writers. These are just their short bios. To learn more about them, go visit their blogs. For even more, we’ll be doing a brief series called “Get to Know Your Writers,” where we’ll all share 25 random facts about ourselves.
Here are my current contributing writers:

Prior to having children, Megan was a middle school guidance counselor who figured whenever she and her husband would have children, she’d be a career momma and “make it work.” That plan was quickly scratched after the birth of their first child, when Megan used a birth doula, began exploring cloth diapers, organic produce, “real food,” and alternative health. She blogs at Chiquita Bambino, aptly named in Spanish and Italian after her little girl and baby boy.|

I am a Christian and have been married to my youth-pastor husband for 6 years. We have two young boys and dream of having 10 more (ok, that might just be me). I used to be a special education teacher and now I stay home with our kids where we eat lots of butter and always have something fermenting in the kitchen. Our lives are busy with youth ministry, parenthood, and cooking real, whole foods. Join with us as we try to live the abundant life that God has for us and blog all about it at simplelifeabundantlife.com.
|We’re Abby and Jeanne, two transplanted Montana mamas who became fast friends when our littles collided on the playground … and then we figured out that we have similar parenting styles, a love of cooking, a penchant for gardening, a strong sense of faith, and a lot of hope for the future. We’re growing organic gardens and raising happy and healthy kids. We are also pretty passionate about quality food. We use grass-fed beef, free-range chicken and all organic produce whenever possible. The milk in our recipes is either raw or low-pasteurized/non-homogenized. We avoid dairy that contains growth hormones and genetically engineered/modified foods. But we are also on a budget, and we live in the real world, so we do the best we can!
Kristen Burgess is passionate about helping mamas have healthy, happy babies. She writes at <a href=”http://www.
