About Me


Welcome!  I’m Erica, and this is my little spot on the web where I can reflect upon the blessings in my life and share the fun and the trials of busily raising four children with my husband, Cory.

I am interested in living simply and naturally.  I am always eager to learn new things about nutrition, wellness, education, and faith.  I am training as a birth and postpartum doula, so I’m especially interested in all things related to pregnancy, birth, and parenting.

We have chosen to educate our children at home, and I will write about that journey from time to time.  You’ll find a collection of various other things here:  crafts, food, faith-based projects, a bit of rambling.  I love to share photographs, dreams, and goals–all things under our catch phrase of “growing together.”

This is a breastfeeding-friendly zone!

    Hello, what a nice site. Thanks for being an assest to our family. From the moment I met you I knew that you & your hubby were true soul mates. I will enjoy visiting this especially when I am having a “blue” day. I did send a lenthy message but I did not put my e-mail and it wiped everything I had said out memory is short on days like this. I will have to visit again.

    Erica, I finally had some time to read your blog tonight. I enjoyed it very much. I love reading about your wonderful loving family and life. It inspires me. I guess I don’t know as much about the computer as I thought I did, since I cannot give you any information on the Website line. I don’t know the answer. It took me a long time to learn what people were talking about using the word blog.I am trying to learn how to keep up with the times. I don’t email sorority very much, can’t keep up with the emails.
    God Bless You and Your Family, Erica.

    So, I had to put my class website, there, our family site (which is super under construction since forever) is http://thekitchins.webs.com

    Im so glad I can re-connect with you now, I totally miss having a great group of friends around me. Since moving to VA life has changed a lot!

    You’re also inspiring me to attempt to keep a blog again, Ive tried, but then life gets in the way!

      Hi! Thank you for your comment. I’m glad you enjoyed your visit. I will always think of Grace as my church family. We love our current church, but I miss everyone at Grace. Have a wonderful Christmas.
