Hi, friend! Come on in and make yourself comfortable. I am Mrs. Katie and I want to personally welcome you to Heritage Ways.

I am the wife of the wonderful Mr. Patient. We have six children and are grandparents, as well.

Heritage Ways was born from my passion of homemaking and homekeeping. I love to show hospitality using the skills I have mastered over 50 years. Through my cookbooks, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, website and in-person, I teach basic and advanced cooking and baking skills, as well as, preserving food through dehydrating, canning, and fermenting.

Here at Heritage Ways, you can find plenty of recipes, videos, blog posts, and tips to help you in your own homemaking journey. I hope you’ll make yourself at home, visit our General Store and all that Heritage Ways has to offer.


Our Family Bible Verse

Psalm 25: 4-5


DEMONSTRATE Your ways, O Eternal One. Teach me to understand so I can follow. EASE me down the path of Your truth. FEED me Your word because You are the True God who has saved me. I wait all day long, hoping, trusting in You.
