What are we leaving behind in our race towards progress?
We have more convenience and comfort than ever before, so why does something feel off?
- Stillness feels elusive amid our frantic schedules
- The more we consume, the unhappier we feel

Old Fashioned on Purpose is a rallying cry for a less industrial, more intentional life
Hi, I’m Jill.
Since I was a little girl, I’ve sensed something was missing in our modern paradigm…
But I didn’t quite know what it was.
It wasn’t until we moved to a tumble-down farmstead in the middle of the Wyoming prairie that I found it. Rediscovering a collection of time-honored skills and principles has changed my life forever.
But you don’t have to move to a farm to experience this same transformation.
Since 2010, I’ve taught thousands of people how to cook nourishing homemade meals, grow food in their backyards, and find joy in a simpler, slower life.
Our high-tech, modern world isn’t the enemy. But it’s not the only way, either.
So friend, that craving you feel for a simpler, slower life? Don’t ignore it. It’s pointing you down a thrilling new (yet old) path.
I can’t wait to explore it together.
