Hey there, I’m Lana!

Most days you can find me teaching business in the University classroom or at home on the farm. I’m a wife to my Fireman husband and mom to 5 (raised 4 and just added a precious daughter in law)! We do life on a small farmstead in Kansas City, where we raise goats, chickens & bees. We are fixing up our 120 year old farmhouse one room at a time.
