About

Welcome to Genuinely Simple!

To stay in the spirit of things around here, let’s keep it simple. Genuinely Simple is the place where I share my journey as a Christian, eco-hippie, homeschool mama – what I do, why I do it, and how I do it – with you, my lovely readers. So whether you’re looking for tips on navigating the vegan waters with kids, a more respectful and laid-back way to parent, or a friend to share your foster parenting journey with, Genuinely Simple is a pretty good place to start.

To learn more about me and my sweet family, look below. Otherwise, keep it simple and live the life you were called to live!

About the Writer

Annelise Hardegree is a Christian stay-at-home mom who is always looking to learn new things and live intentionally with her family. She lives in Waco, Texas with her wonderfully supportive husband, J, her two busy boys, E (5), and K (3), and an 8-month-old foster baby (N), who was placed with her family when he was 3 days old. Annelise loves reading, creating hand-lettered prints, dreaming up home decor and renovations for her house, and playing outside with her boys. She has a B.A. in English and an M.S.Ed. in Higher Education & Student Affairs, both from Baylor University, and for those of you who are just as crazy about personality typologies as she is, Annelise is an INTJ on the Myers-Briggs, and a 4 on the Enneagram.
