The following is a true conversation:My husband:  "Now, who are the people in this movie? Jo...Beth...?" (This was as we started one of our at-home movie date nights a few weeks ago.)Me: (feeling amused that he is mistaking Pride and Prejudice for Little Women, being patient, and holding back laughter) "Um...I think you are thinking of Little Women. This is totally different. It's Pride and Prejudice." (Perhaps this is the way he might feel if I called a pair of needle-nosed pliers a crescent…See More

Welcome to the home of Christ-centered natural family living! This web site is for LDS attachment parenting moms who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (http://lds.org). This site is not in any way officially related to the LDS Church. We are, however, eternally grateful for our membership in the LDS Church. The views expressed here are those of me, Celestia Shumway (see tab above "about me") and my friends here on this social network.

 

 

 

 

We believe in the following lost womanly arts:

 

  • supporting our husbands as Godly, manly men
  • natural family planning
  • natural childbirth
  • moms being home with their babies
  • breastfeeding (especially ecological breastfeeding)
  • babywearing
  • cosleeping
  • homemaking
  • parent mentoring
  • eating real food
  • using plants for medicine
  • reading and studying from the classics

 

We have lots of resources here. Check out the downloads tab above for the presentations from our holistic LDS moms' conference in April 2009. We addressed the issues of seeing children as a blessing, homeschooling, gardening with little children, attracting income as a stay-at-home mom, eating whole foods and healing with a yeast-free diet, and much more!

 

Also, head to the tab that says "the book" for the first six chapters free of my book, Tree of Life Mothering Vol. 1, How to Be a Happy Healthy LDS AP Mom Without Losing Your Mind, Money or Husband.
