I believe that each best choice that I make will add up to the best life that I can live. ~ Esther Emery
Esther is an off-grid homestead wife, mama, and author. She lives with her husband and three children in a yurt (!!) in the forest (!!!) where they maintain a blog and YouTube channel about the simple life.
They raise goats, and bake bread, among many other amazing things. She just released her first book, What Falls From the Sky: How I Disconnected from the Internet and Reconnected with the God Who Made the Clouds, in December.
