Hi! I’m Missy Rakes and I’m so glad that you’re here. Let me tell you little bit about myself. I graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in Human Environmental Sciences.

I’ve been blogging for over a decade and have been featured on many websites such as BuzzFeed, Country Living and The Pioneer Woman.

I’m a homeschooling, homesteading, stay-at-home mom of four who has a heart for encouraging women to live a simple and frugal life. I love the Lord and aspire to glorify Him in all that I do, of course I don’t always do this perfectly, but that is my goal.

I live on 10 acres in the country with my husband, children, dog, cats and chickens. We grow a large garden and l love encouraging others to grow and preserve their own food.

We aspire to live a simple life and teach our children to do the same. Some things I enjoy are reading, crocheting, cooking from scratch and being immersed in nature.

I’ve always been frugal and am determined to make the most with what I have been given. I enjoy finding new ways to stretch the budget and save more.

I share frugal living tips, easy recipes and spiritual encouragement here at Graceful Little Honey Bee and I would love for you to follow along!
