Hi! Welcome to The Joyful Homestead blog! My name is Amanda and I’m a homeschooling mom of 4 (soon to be 5!) and married to my best friend. We live on a little homestead of 3 acres with our little herd of kids and chickens and seek to live simply and set apart in these busy times. We strive to create a life of joy, peace and love for others. We love natural solutions, DIY projects, saving money and home learning. We are also a foster and adoptive family with a mix of needs and learning styles and have a passion of nurturing our children to be future world changers.
