About Me


Hi.  My name is Emma Jean McGill.  I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, pastor, homeschooler, homesteader, avid reader,  photographer, writer, and entrepreneur.  I have been 1/2 of a homeschooling team with my husband for the past 35 years. As we have grown in wisdom we have changed our methodology and the curriculum many times. We have changed from teaching our children to get a “good job,” to teaching them to live an entrepreneurial lifestyle financed by multiple streams of residual income, allowing them to spend more time with their loved ones.

I want to welcome you to our Simple Abundance Homestead!  We are excited to share with you  our journey to living a life that is natural, healthy, happy, and simple, in a rural setting.  A life of Simple Abundance!  We are interested in the arts of gardening, farming, animal husbandry, solar power, wind power, aquaponics, whole foods, homemade breads and cheeses, homeschooling, entrepreneurship, and much more.  Come join us on this wonderful journey!
