Hello and welcome to Kitchen Stewardship! I’m so pleased to introduce you the team here at KS, all dedicated to making sure you receive great family recipes for your Pinterest boards, real food encouragement and tips to get you out of the kitchen faster and with more in your pocket, and connections with natural companies you can be proud to support.
KATIE, Editor and Owner
I’m the foundress and writer at the site, and reluctant “boss” of the team. You can read more about my little family and the mission of KS here, so I’ll turn things over to the rest of the people who keep me sane and help provide the time I need to research and write posts and interact with the wonderful community we’ve built here.
SARA, Technical/Graphical Assistant
Sara is a mama to three precious gifts and wife to a man who lovingly calls her “his nutter.” She started pushing her family into real food a few months after she started blogging. They will forever be on the road to real food and natural health.
Balancing art and logic in her daily life and work, God’s balance of creation and healing is quite clear to her. She loves creating, experimenting, and learning. Whether it be food, health or crafting. She is navigating her family through healthy frugality – trying to THRIVE, not merely survive this life. She shares this journey at Your Thriving Family.
KATY, Ad Manager
Katy and her family began their real food journey in 2009 when they were challenged by some friends to think about how their food choices effect others in the world. That challenge led them to the natural, eco-friendly life they strive to live today. Katy handles advertising and sponsorships for Kitchen Stewardship, including giveaways.
Katy grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan and spent several years in marketing before her son was born in 2012. She now lives in Lafayette, Indiana with her youth minister husband and their toddler son. In her free time she loves reading, spending time outside and playing golf.
RACHEL, Social Media Manager
Rachel has been a stay at home mom for over eight years after having worked for several years in the financial services industry. Now that her kids are older, she wanted to jump back into the workforce while still being home when her kids came home from school. Virtual work seemed to be a perfect fit and working here at Kitchen Stewardship seemed to be an even more perfect fit! Rachel’s family is slowly but surely taking baby steps toward healthier eating.
Rachel handles all aspects of social media for Kitchen Stewardship, from Pinterest to Facebook and everything in between. But don’t worry, you’ll still hear from Katie on those outlets as well. Rachel and her family are Florida natives born and raised and are now living in Marietta, Georgia.
HELEN, Site Editor & Virtual Assistant
As site editor Helen works diligently to ensure all guest and contributor posts flow seamlessly into the vision of Kitchen Stewardship. She also makes sure Katie doesn’t become too long-winded in her posts. Reading and editing have always been passions of Helen’s so she is thrilled to be able to help out in this way. As Katie’s Assistant she makes sure the KS email inbox stays under control and handles all eBook customer service issues.
When Helen isn’t working, she enjoys reading books and blogs and is an avid knitter. Returning to a more natural way of living has become a true passion and she can be found making yogurt, babywearing, or hanging cloth diapers out to dry. Helen and her family currently live in Wisconsin but dream of a more temperate climate.
MARY, Team Assistant
Mary is a Michigan State University alumnus, former math teacher, currently a substitute teacher K-12 and part-time golf pro-shop employee. She became a mom in 1980 with the birth of Katie (yes, the Kitchen Stewardship Katie). She assists Katie with archiving posts, trying to catch/fix any typos in posts, and other small-sized ‘chores’. Reading and golf are her main hobbies beyond being a grandmother.
…to my kids, Katie interjects. I’m so proud that this lovely lady is my mother, and that she has put up with my late-night writing ways ever since high school. She’s truly wonderful, and I waxed poetic about her HERE along with a delicious baked apple chip recipe.
I’ve got a great bunch of contributors here at Kitchen Stewardship. They bring experience and expertise in areas that I might not have to round out the information you are looking for. I hope you’ll give them a warm welcome and add to the discussion on their posts.

Haley Stewart is a bookish Catholic writer, speaker, wife, homeschooling mama to three, and co-author of Feast! Real Food, Reflections, and Simple Living for the Christian Year. She can be found chasing many small children and reading Jane Austen novels with a cup of coffee in hand (reheated at least twice because did you see the part about many small children?). You can connect with Haley at her blog, Carrots for Michaelmas, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Bethany lives in Ohio with her wonderful husband, delightful 5-year-old daughter, and adorable 2-year-old son. When she’s not busy making a disaster in the kitchen, she enjoys taking all-day cycling excursions with her family and reading books. She comes from a long line of cooks, including ancestors who were chefs to German nobility. Despite her chops in the kitchen, she is completely unskilled at vegetable gardening. (Her consolation is knowing that in a zombie apocalypse, her role would be the town baker and not farmer.) A long-time KS reader, Bethany is thankful for Kitchen Stewardship’s baby-steps and Monday Missions that have completely transformed her family’s life.
