Author Kelly S. Garrett grew up in a small mid western town at a time that mothers stayed home with their kids and took care of the home while dad worked outside the home at his business or in the local factory. Her life experiences and 25 years as a Home Schooling mother give her some interesting insights in family self sufficiency. Through humorous stories like "Is this what meatloaf is suppose to look like?", you are encouraged to gain new skills and make the best of what you have on hand.
