About Me

I’m the writer and founder of A Sip of Truth. (Which, you probably could’ve guessed that, right?)

My mission is to empower new moms to find their own unique approach to natural pregnancy, birth and being a crunchy mom. And, to do it one step at a time.

How do I empower new moms? I give you the information you need (in a relaxed, girl-talk kind of way) to make choices that are right for you, your baby and your health. From one mama trying her best to live a natural life to another, you really can do this.


I’ve always been a bit of a wildflower and willing to try new weird hippie things… but, always in secret. Going against the mainstream way for personal care, health care, and all things motherhood has always felt a little uncomfortable for me.

Like, why would I have a natural birth when everyone raves about how nice medicated births are?

Isn’t it just a little weird that I refuse to circumcise any future sons we have?

Will my mom (or husband, or friends, or insert anybody else) think I’m strange if I want to do placenta encapsulation?

Or, the biggest obstacle in my crunchy life thus far, I just don’t have the money to do things the natural way.

But, here’s the thing. You deserve to know all of your options in all things pregnancy, birth, and beyond. You get to pick my brain about all the things that I never asked. 

I’m here to answer the questions you want to ask a naturally-minded friend who’s been there and done that. The questions lIke, but, wait, my doctor said I had to… you’re saying it wasn’t necessary?” and

I didn’t know how easy cloth diapering could be. and

how can I prepare for natural birth now?

More About Me (you know, your new go-to girl for natural mom advice)

My husband and I live in the beautiful Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. We met in Colorado at a one-year adventure Bible school and got married 6 months after our first date! After trying to conceive for nearly 2 years, God allowed us to become pregnant naturally with our sweet daughter.

For as long as I can remember, I have desired to be a wife and mother. God is very good to me!


I am a Christian that has been saved by grace alone – thank Goodness for that because only the Lord knows just how distracted, faithless, and just straight-up selfish I can be.

How I Started Blogging

After a while of pumping my husband full of natural momming knowledge one absurdly long lecture at a time, he kindly told me that I needed an outlet. “Can’t you talk to your friends about all this stuff?” (Poor guy.)

That’s when it dawned on me to start a blog. I have looooads of things I want to share with other new moms but sometimes I don’t have the time, courage or even the friends to share with if we’re being totally honest. (making mom friends is HARD, y’all)

So, here I am sharing all of the honest truths I’ve learned along the way with you.

I blog one post at a time, I do life one step at a time, and of course, I enjoy my tea one sip at a time.
