About Drea Wood

I'm a 28 year old mother of 3 boys, with a 4th boy due Oct 2012. My husband is a former Evangelical Pastor who recently took on serving in a new field in law enforcement. We've moved 7 times in 8 years and will probably move again in less than another. Between all the moving, we stay busy home schooling, living naturally, enjoying time with family/friends and with any extra time I enjoy keeping up my blog (www.dreawood.com) and enjoying my passion as a Professional Photographer.

Grain Mill Wagon Experience: My adventure with milling my own wheat began almost a year ago today. I was introduced to it through a sweet friend and mother of 8... who not only introduced me to the Wonder Mill but also Bread Beckers and all the amazing benefits of freshly ground wheat. I was immediately hooked... and although it has taken me some time to learn the ropes, it has been worth the effort. The Wonder Mill has changed our families way of eating :) - for the better. The Grain Mill Challenge only helped in that journey, with the great variety of recipes shared for us all to try, love and make our own. So glad I joined in!
