Wow, 39 weeks pregnant already. It’s gone by so fast! With my first pregnancy, I remember anxiously waiting on each and every step. I would read the weekly updates about gestational development and count down the weeks religiously. The nursery was washed, organised and prepped months in advance. I also remember how few pregnancy tools […]
They’re the good girls who have their lives together…But I hate to break it to you, the “good Christian girl” is a complete misnomer
Hi, I’m Caitlin…I’ve spent most of my life without a clue about who I am. And I believe it’s more of a wide-spread issue than we realize.

I didn’t like that idea. I like to think of myself as […]
It’s not a new idea: natural health — or naturopathy — has been around for a long time. But what the heck is it, really? And in this modern day, why should we care? I used to think natural health was a hokey alternative to real medicine. Something used by hippies or talked about in […]
All of the paranoia in recent years about the lurking dangers in our homes — found in household cleaners, personal care products, produce, etc — definitely made me turn a deaf ear to chemical free living. It all seemed like a fad, and I’ve got an allergy to fads. Isn’t it every week we learn […]
