Lindy Van Komen loves people and learning about the world. She is a doula and childbirth mentor (complete with a perfectly lovely “zen” voice). Her love for supporting families began with her stumbling over things that worked with her handsome husband and fiesty children. A year and a half ago, Lindy’s family traded their nice, easy-going life in the suburbs (as if homeschooling five kids could ever really be easy going!), for the wild life of homesteading. She has learned more about ducks and chickens than she ever wanted to know. She has even learned to love cats and to live without air-conditioning, which she previously thought was impossible.
