Sasha has been a stay-at-home mother for the past 9 years and is the mother of 7 children, ages 15, 11, 7, 5, 3, 1 & 1. She is a Christian homeschool mom that uses a classical education approach in the younger grades and moves more towards a leadership training/unschool style as her children get older. One of her children has learning differences that require speech and occupational therapy, and for the time being he receives those services while attending public school. She is passionate about breastfeeding, intact awareness, environmentally safe solutions for family life, and natural childbirth. She enjoys family gatherings, sewing, science fiction, table top RPGs, cooking, writing and getting lost in a good book.
Nic has been a stay-at-home-mom for the past 14 years and is the mother of 6 children, ages 16, 13, 10, 4, 1, & one still cooking, due to arrive in August. She is currently unschooling all of her children and loving life. She would describe herself as a dabbler of interests and is always working on something new, be it life or a craft, or some other project. She started up a home business making reusable menstrual pads and was wildly successful, but made the hard decision to put that on hold while she plans for the arrival of her newest little one. She’s hoping to eventually get back to her business, as it was a source of great joy. She also started a local Red Tent community, which is a sisterhood of diverse women from all sorts of backgrounds with similar philosophies and desires to connect with other women. She is passionate about breastfeeding, natural parenting, birth, the joy of being a woman, unschooling, and a good debate.
Michelle is a stay-at-home mama with five children, ages 10, 7, 7, 4, & 1. She homeschools the four younger children with an unschooling flavor. She has one child on the Autism Spectrum, and two children & a husband with ADHD, so life is full of challenges aplenty! She is slowly working toward urban homesteading, currently has chickens and a vegetable garden, and dabbles in various DIY projects. She has a passion for breastfeeding education, is involved with La Leche League, and hopes to someday be an IBCLC. She loves cloth diapering and co-leads her local cloth diaper group. She founded a successful Attachment Parenting group in her town, and is devoted to helping other moms find their way through motherhood. Other passions include natural birth, protecting and celebrating nature, and watching her children grow and learn naturally. She is also an active member of her local Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. She enjoys knitting, sewing, and various other crafts, is an amateur herbalist, and loves to read historical fiction and non-fiction (mostly parenting, spirituality, and anthropology topics). She also loves prime-time TV . . . and writing for blogs. 😉
