"Exactly what I've wanted to bring into mine & my family's lives"
So I did it. After much consideration, I signed up in the evening (technically yesterday) & it's currently 4 am & I'm up with third-trimester pregnancy insomnia. I can't stop reading all the content!
I'm now so excited to get into it I'm tempted to head out & get started & the sun isn't even up!
I am absolutely loving picking through the information!
This is just so 'me' & has been exactly what I've wanted to bring into mine & my family's lives without knowing how.

"We are all feeling very excited & abundant by this change"
I love it so much, it really has me feeling connected and grounded. So easy to follow, not overwhelming…love it thank you 🙏🏼
I wanted to share the conversation we had around this lesson.
For a back story: We have just sold our home & are moving. My son is finding this change harder than my daughters but after reading through this activity I started questioning what wealth we might be able to grow by our move & my son quickly identified experiential wealth & living wealth.
Trying new things, taking risks & getting new chickens, growing a big garden etc.
We also identified how it covers social wealth, material wealth, intellectual wealth & financial wealth.
All of a sudden we are all feeling very excited & abundant by this change ahead of us!
"Astounded by the level of information"
Wow!! Samantha & Tonielle, you ladies have seriously outdone yourselves. I signed up for the Nature Kids Club Program today & after browsing the content, I am astounded by the level of information, fun & embodiment practices you are offering. And it's only the first month out of 12!!! I am super excited to be on this journey with you over the next year. The kids have started unschooling this year & I am so thrilled to have this program as a loose guide for our days. This to me, is the stuff kids should be learning about. I am so grateful and feel blessed to be part of something like this. And best of all, I get to learn something that interests me so greatly, while enjoying being with my children. I'm Celebrating the year ahead!
