About REBEKAH

Welcome to Mighty Roots Homestead! I’m Rebekah and I’m so glad you’re here!

I was born and raised in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia where I now reside with my amazing husband, three energetic kids, and several feisty furbabies. One thing is for certain – life is never dull around here!

Fueled by the necessity of managing my multiple chronic illnesses and a shared desire for more simple living, my husband and I chose to start homesteading. So, in January of 2023, I broke ground on our garden. By the abundant grace of God, much help from others, a lot of hard work, and yes, some tears, we were able to successfully establish our suburban homestead.

Since we began homesteading, I’ve found that eating primarily from scratch, homegrown, or locally sourced food makes a significant positive difference in managing my chronic health issues. As our first year of homesteading progressed, my overall health started to steadily improve and my energy increased. This has allowed me to further my endeavors to simplify our family’s lifestyle.

Come join me as I share my adventures – and likely some misadventures! – in rediscovering a simple life, real food, and natural fiber wardrobe.
