Many of us long for a simpler and more wholesome way of life, but making the appropriate changes feels too difficult. In The Made From Scratch Life, Melissa K. Norris guides us in looking at ways we can create a more natural home.
Beginning with food grown in our own vegetable garden, she shows us proper planting, harvesting and preserving techniques, along with recipes and meal-planning tips. Avoiding toxic cleaning products can be as simple as looking in the kitchen pantry, and Norris provides recipes to make our own chemical-free solutions. Raising livestock for milk, eggs, and meat is also discussed. Finally, Norris touches on our own family traditions and practices, and how these contribute to a happy home.
Throughout The Made From Scratch Life Norris shares Bible truths along with her own home-grown wisdom. Although some of these suggestions may be impossible for many city or suburban dwellers, there is plenty of good advice for every reader, as even small changes can contribute to your family’s well-being.
