Meagan Visser of Growing Up Herbal

Welcome to Growing Up Herbal my natural mama friend! I’m so glad you’re here!

I suppose you’re here because you want to learn more about Growing Up Herbal, the blog, and me… the mama behind it all.

Well grab a cup of hot herbal tea and keep reading. I’ll wait, and I’ll tell you everything!

The Blog

Here on Growing Up Herbal, my goal is to give you a glimpse into my mind, my family’s life, and our natural health journey.

I’m a registered nurse and an herbalist, but before all of that, I’m a mom that has a strong desire to raise my children naturally. My purpose is to use Growing Up Herbal to inspire and teach you how to take charge of your children’s health naturally. You can do it. You don’t have to have any letters behind your name. You are mom! You hold a position of authority and respect. I want to teach you how to take back the responsibility God gave you as the parent of your children and to be in charge of their health instead of handing that responsibility over to someone else. That means knowing how to feed them nutritious foods, keep them safe from toxins and harmful chemicals, and of course, how to doctor them naturally when they do get sick.

So if you’re looking for a place where you can learn about natural ways to deal with children’s health issues, real (whole) food nutrition, decreasing the toxins in your and your kids lives, and natural DIY goodies… Growing Up Herbal is for you. Welcome!

Just keep in mind, I’m not perfect. I’m growing and learning, and I want to encourage you to do the same thing. We’re all on a journey, and life is good!

Here you’ll find weekly posts that fit into one of the above areas. I hope that it allows you to learn more about me and Growing Up Herbal. Feel free to use the contact page to say hi! I would love to get to know you and hear about your journey too!

About Me

My name is Meagan Visser. I’m a wife and home-school mom to 4 small boys, and I’m passionate about natural living and natural health. I have a background in modern medicine (Registered Nurse), and I’m a family herbalist.

I’m married to my high-school sweetheart and best friend. I love the life we’re carving out here in the mountains of East Tennessee! I’m looking forward to growing old together and falling more and more in love with him every day.

I’m a fan of simple living. My eye is drawn towards beautiful, feminine things that are rustic and most-likely vintage. I enjoy crafting and making things myself, and I have a love-hate relationship with spending money. I suppose I’m frugal and extravagant… depending upon the situation.

My husband says I’m an “all or nothing” person. When I get an idea in my head… I’m all in. There’s no “half-way” around here.

I’m a dreamer and a wanna-be adventurer. When something new comes along… I tend to go after it. Thankfully my steady man helps to keep me focused all while letting me explore my MANY passions and interests. I have the tendency to take on too much!

This is just some of who I am. Feel free to check out this post called 20 Things You Might Not Know About Me to learn more and of course, keep reading the blog for more glimpses into my life.

xo xo, Meagan
