Welcome to The Mountain Momma blog! My name is Jana Beard, and I am pretty much a “newbie” to this blogging world. I enjoy just having a place to share our daily steps up whatever mountain might be before us. I am wife to a camp director and mom to two amazing kids. I have been a stay at home/homeschool mom for the past 3 years, and absolutely love it! (I was formerly a public school teacher, and loved that too!) Here’s hoping you enjoy a look into our life here on our beautiful mountain in Southern California!
