We are pleased to introduce Jenivere! She has been a member since 2003!





How did you first find Mothering? MDC? I believe I was searching for something to do with reusable bags and found the Mindful Home forums but I can't be certain since I can't see my oldest posts.


What’s your favorite MDC forum? I think it is a tie between Mindful Home Management and Homeschooling.


What keeps you coming back to MDC? Friendship and the wide variety of information.


Can you tell us a little bit about your family?
I have been married to my husband for ten years and we have four children; 1 boy and 3 girls. I am a SAHM and we are unschoolers. Someday we'd like to have a small homestead but for now we live in a little farming town and grow what we can in our backyard.


Is there something that you do now that you probably never would have done if it weren’t for MDC?
I think I can credit MDC with cloth diapering my kids and a lot of my current attitude towards food and politics.


Tell us something most don’t know about you. On MDC? I come from a very large family; I have 5 sisters and 3 brothers. My husband comes from a family of 7. Our parents come from families of 10 and 14 children etc.

What are you most proud of? I don't know if proud is really the right word. I think though that I am happy that I came across a lot of the information I did before I had children. I am grateful that I learned about things like circumcision, birth, herbs etc in the very beginning.


Are you a night owl or an early-bird-gets-the-worm? I love being up in the quiet early morning hours but find staying up past my kids so tempting that I usually stay up to late to get up early.


As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? What about now? I always wanted to be a teacher and as I grew older an architect. I never became a professional teacher but I enjoy teaching my children. I did go to school for Computer Aided Drafting but gave it up for my children. Right now I really don't want another job but someday I'd like to work in a Library or own a business that recycles things like floors and cabinets from old homes..


Do you consider yourself introverted or extroverted? Introverted


Would you say you are neat or messy? Well strictly speaking I am messy. I like things neat and clean but I am the queen of procrastination. If I can't do something exactly right the way I want it I put it off over and over...


Do you like to cook? What is your ideal meal? I do enjoy cooking and baking. I like comfort foods; mashed potatoes and gravy, meat loaf, corn on the cob etc. I don't have an ideal meal. I bake wth whole wheat so I like searching for recipes that use it or converting ones that don't.


What's your favorite/go-to cleaning product? Baking soda and vinegar.



What do you consider your worst vice? It's a tie between my temper and procrastination.


What’s sitting on your dining room table right now? Books, papers, boxes from the computer we are building. Bedside table? Books; The Herbal Medicine Makers Handbook, TTOYF, Phonics Pathways, Childrens Anthology of stories I think. Lamp, alarm clock, flash drive, and a few odds and ends my kids put there.

What's the last book you've read? I'm currently reading Wild Fermentation.

Favorite all-time move? The Princess Bride


Favorite book? I adore reading and don't feel I can pick a favorite book. In the past I've really enjoyed books like Jane Eyre. I like a lot of authors; Dean Koontz, Mercedes lackey, Jane Austin, Louis L'Amour, Issac Asimov. I'm fairly eclectic.


Do you have other sites you enjoy participating/reading at? I have a small private crunchy LDS board I belong too.



Do you have a favorite saying or personal motto? I like to collect quotes; my current facebook quite is “Do not let the endless
succession of small things crowd great ideals out of sight and out of mind.” ~Charlotte Mason



What is your quest?
My personal quest is common one I think; to be a better mother and wife; to raise kind, considerate, responsible and curious children.

Not all those who wander are lost
