Meet Sierra from The Learning Life
Educated decisions, intentional living and purposeful giving
Hello! I’m Sierra. My husband and I are Arkansas natives and we are now raising our daughter, one, and our dog, four, there. We would eventually like to create a homestead and run a family farm, but we know we have a lot of work to do before we reach that goal. That work is how The Learning Life was born.
Growing up, I wasn’t taught how to balance a check book, host a dinner party, prepare for a job interview, look for a spouse, manage my time or any of the other things, big or small, that adulthood asks of you. These are all skills I groomed, myself, well into my adult life. The more adult friends I made, the more I realized I wasn’t alone in my struggles. In one way or another, some skills just fell through cracks and we all woke up one morning wondering how we were going to pull off that day’s tasks.
Along the way, I’ve taken my background in Journalism and applied it to finding out how we can all make educated decisions, live intentionally and give purposefully. I hope you’re able to benefit from these tips and tricks like I have.
Like I mentioned before, I have a background in Journalism. I practiced professionally for almost five years – 10 years if you count my work in high school and college. I went on to win awards, both in the collegiate level and professional level. I retired to become a stay-at-home mom.
I love having a plan. Goals, organization, knowing where I am or what I’m about to embark on. Knowledge is power and I’ve come to learn that fear is largely derived from the unknown. I’m dedicated to living life without fear.
I’m slowly learning how to live a more natural life. My husband and I bought chickens at the beginning of 2020 and we’re looking forward to planning our garden. We only grew tomatoes and herbs summer 2020, so we’re looking forward to growing our green thumbs!
I’m the oldest of three siblings. If my take-charge nature or Type A personality didn’t lead you to already assume that, now you know.
I’m very much a people person. I love to read a good non-fiction book and relax at the end of the day, but I find true joy in encouraging others, making new friends and fostering relationships that will last my life time. You can call me your biggest cheerleader!
THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY!
