I understand how the everyday lives of mamas are filled with many different things.
I believe that all these things of motherhood can be lived intentionally and through that intention beauty can be found.
I believe that as intention and beauty are laced in all these things, seeking the kingdom of God becomes the experience of our lives.
And I believe this is a life long process.
I’m Hannah, wife to Will and mama to five. I’m also an Eastern Orthodox Christian and my faith is the most important thing to me in life. I believe that being a wife, mother, and homemaker are my God-given roles, and I strive to be better in all these areas through the grace of God and to His glory. Over the years I’ve worked hard to build a beautiful intentional life for our family.
Will and I married in 2007. We have five lovely children: Mia, Michael, Ella, Theo, and Josiah. They are a dynamic mix, each with their own vivid personalities. I homeschool the older three while having the younger two underfoot. We are currently at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary while my husband works toward his M.Div. degree. So we are living the apartment/city life currently and learning a lot along the way!
I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, and planning. People, nature, beauty, chocolate, essential oils, and order are all important things to me!
This blog is a home for encouragement and inspiration for the mama who wants to live a beautiful intentional life. It’s encompasses all the things involved in being an intentional woman, wife, and mother. We’ll cover natural living, creating family culture, and taking good care of ourselves, our homes, and our families. I’ll also share books I love, online resources, and my favorite products.
The podcast “All These Things” is produced through Ancient Faith Ministries. It’s geared specifically toward Orthodox mamas, but non-Orthodox women enjoy it and benefit from it as well. We cover a lot of the same topics as the blog through the lens of living an Orthodox life. You can find it on Apple Podcasts or Ancient Faith.
