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.

I’m Kate, mama to 5 and wife to Ben.  I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.  I’m also a big fan of “fancy” drinks (anything but plain water counts as ‘fancy’ in my world!) and I can’t stop myself from DIY-ing everything.  I sure hope you’ll stick around so I can get to know you better!
