I’m Amy, a wife and a mother of two, a Catholic convert and a perpetual student (getting a PhD in English Lit) recently transplanted back to my heartland of Texas. As a newly-hatched grown-up I’m hoping to make things new for my family and order my home to point towards love, fruitfulness, and the God who Is all these things.
Now, why “The Whole Loaf”? With all the gifts of our modern age, we often find ourselves living a fragmented life. There are a growing number of people these days who are looking to get back to the origins of things — people into whole foods, local resources, personal business, handmade and homemade goods; people who are “green,” “crunchy,” “cheap” … (oh! I mean “frugal” ;) or who just plain defy categories. So with this blog, I want to try to mine the forgotten resources of a time, not too long ago, when there was legitimate concern that “the idea of sliced bread may be startling to some people.”
