I’m Jess… wife to a super awesome…albeit crazy:)…man, homeschooling mama of 3 wild kiddos, bread baker, penny pincher, lover of all things agriculture, and most importantly a child of the One True King. We live smack dab in the Bible Belt…Tennessee…where we enjoy going barefoot, hunting & fishing, growing our own food, raising goats & chickens, cheering for the Vols, and living 25 minutes (yes, we use minutes instead of miles here..don’t judge us) from any type of business. I won’t apologize for my use of a’int and y’all or my love for Jesus, but I might just invite you over for some homemade banana pudding and a jar of extra sweet tea 😉

The mission of Faithful Farmwife is to help women raise faithful, frugal, and self-sufficient families through homemaking, homesteading, and homeschooling with Christ as the cornerstone.
Mamas on the homestead are tasked with caring for the home, the children, the animals, the husband, and the land. Doing these things well while staying sane & social and keeping up with self-care can seem almost impossible. Toss in homeschooling and you have a recipe for chaos. Faithful Farmwife was started as a way for me to share real life motherhood with other moms like myself and to give encouragement, resources, and tips to help others out on this journey.
I do my best to live a faithful, frugal, and self-sufficient life and I want you to join in with me!
It doesn’t matter if you live on 40 ares with animals & a large garden or in an apartment where you can produce & grow a window herb garden… We are all on the same path and we want the best for our families.
The Faithful Farmwife blog focuses on 3 main categories:
You will find posts about livestock, gardening, preserving food, and self-sufficiency under homesteading. Homemaking contains posts about family, cleaning & organizing, frugal living, and recipe. Homeschooling is where you will find homeschool inspiration, curriculum reviews, and encouragement for your homeschool journey.
If you want to join a group of mamas who understand your day-to-day struggles, you can join the Facebook group Mamas on the Homestead after becoming a Faithful Farmwife member. This is a brand new group for homestead mamas to come together to encourage each other and share ideas!
