My name is Kate, and I’m the main author behind Modern Alternative Mama. I’m excited to “meet” you!
I love to sit down to a hot cup of herbal tea with local raw honey in a nice, big (pretty!) mug — especially if it’s cold outside. Coffee isn’t really my thing (the horror!). Curling up with a blanket, the aforementioned-tea, near a window in the rain? All kinds of awesome.
I love to talk about health and wellness. I never tire of the subject! When I meet readers in real life, we often end up discussing their health, something I’ve recently posted on, or another topic that touches on health/wellness. Sometimes we sit down and chat over tea. You’re welcome to grab yourself a cup as you keep reading here! It’ll be like we’re real-life friends.
I’m married to my husband, Ben. I say for 8 years, he says for 18 years. He’s a fan of exaggerating! But for real, he’s awesome. I couldn’t make MAM work without him.
We have five kids (so far) but are welcoming whoever the Lord gives us. Our children are Rebekah (7); Daniel (6), who was born at home; Jacob (4), also born at home; Nathan (2), another home birth, and Caleb (born 6/15), also born at home! Yeah, we like home birth around here. And breastfeeding. And baby wearing. And homeschooling. And real food.
I’m also really proud to say I’m a published (book) author, something I’ve wanted to be since I was a little kid. My most popular book is called A Practical Guide to Children’s Health, and Natural Remedies for Kids, which will be published by Fair Winds Press in August 2105.
