About Us

We are rooted……in everything we do…in our relationship with God, our family, church, friends, food, & rich southern traditions.  That’s why we thought the name “We are Rooted” was so perfect for us. We have joined forces to bring  you our ideas on “life” even though we are two different Gals with two different families, in two different states!  It is here that we will share our stories, recipes, crafts, decorating ideas, advice, tips & tricks that work for us, and most importantly His Word.

We became friends thirty something years ago in a small southern church of the Nazarene.  There our friendship and faith grew into something beautiful and over the years, even though we are miles apart, has fully blossomed into a full and thriving “rooted” friendship! 
Our prayer is simple…to be what God wants us to be, to do what God wants us to do and to go where God wants us to go.  We felt led by God to start the page up together and we are so excited at what the future holds.  So come and join us on our “rooted” journey!

A little about Natalie…

Hi!  My name is Natalie and Most of the time I go by momma.(that’s MoMMa’ with a flair).  My days are filled with caring for my three crazy kids, amazing husband, Jezzabelle (our amazing duck dog turned house dog turned best friend), two pygmy goats, two nubian {milking} goats, one sheep, two rabbits, one leg horn rooster, one black orpington, one buff orpington, one white orpington, four rhode island reds, two americanas and myself (I need attention too)  and everything within these four walls.  I come from a very close knit family steeped in love, family, traditions and all things God!  I was raised in a small southern town and now beside my cowboy am raising a family of my own.  I guess you could say that I am deeply ROOTED in my family, all things southern including my kitchen table (a story I’ll share later)!  But, it is FIRST in God that I am truly deeply rooted.  It is from HIM that my story GROWS!

A little about Joy…

Hi, I’m Joy, also known as the Sarge of 4.  I am a child of God, whom I love with every fiber of my being. I am a wife to an amazing man (although he’s a Yankee) that is the love of my life and my best friend.  I am a mother to three amazing kiddos that make my life interesting and two crazy dogs that I refer to as the “Wonder Pets”.   There has been talk around my house about getting a lizard, snake and puppies….all of which I have said NO too.  I am defiantly not as brave as Natalie in the animal category.  However, what I am good at is laughing and loving!  I grew up in the same small town Natalie did, but was uprooted by my Yankee husband and moved to the mid-west.  We keep our traditions and family values close by using lots of butter, my cast iron skillet and sugar in my tea!  God has been so good to our family and enriched us with His love, mercy, and saving Grace.
