Life is about learning and growing, but finding good teachers is hard.

My name is Katie Baker, and I am a former educator in the public school system, and I run Growing Home Blog.

This website is my journal where I share everything I know about the challenges of raising children who are independent and strong, maintaining strong communication with your partner even in the most trying of times, and the valuable skills that make life more fun and exciting, like cooking, cleaning, and decorating.

Today, I continue to work part-time as a tutor and life coach. In my free time, I read non-fiction books from my favorite spiritual leaders and doctors, I craft, and I work on building a strong core through pilates!

Learn from my life experiences and see if it helps guide you in your life!
