Hey!! I am Sara Reed, a stay at home mom raising my little Reeds in a small north-eastern town in Oklahoma. Ever since I was a little girl my dream was to grow up and be a mother and now I’m living out my dream! My goal is to raise my kids to love God,  be kind, and to go out into the world and make a difference. I homeschool, raise a few unconventional animals and love to shop! I am married to my high school sweetheart Shane, that I reconnected with later in life. Together we ended up with 6 children! My husband has one, Slaid (7).  I have three, Layla (8), Lincoln (6), and Logan (5). Together we have twins, Lucy (1) and Luna whom we lost to still birth. Shane is my best friend and never fails to always keep me laughing. He is a combat Army veteran with two tours under his belt. He is an amazing leader, provider, and example for our children. I am so blessed that God brought him back into my life!  On my blog I will talk about the joys and struggles of being a mom, our homeschooling journey, our animals, shopping finds, DIY craft projects, along with deeper things such as stillbirth, losing a loved one to suicide and more. I started this blog to share the highs and lows that life has thrown at us. Follow me on Instagram @Raising_Reeds to see videos and pictures of things that don’t always make it to the blog!
