Cindy Murdoch (homesteadbound)

Joined 7 years ago from Texas




Also follow me on:

Cindy Murdoch is a business owner, freelance writer and native Texan.

Being raised on a farm and having dreams of returning inspired Cindy to adopt the name homesteadbound as her username on HubPages. As such, you can expect to find various articles about farm animals and their care. She will also share her knowledge of gardening and gardening techniques.

Cindy, who has been a certified Master Naturalist, has an intense fascination and love of animals, nature and the great outdoors. Her interest in the creation surrounding her spans the depths of the ocean to the furthest reaches of the universe.

Cindy, who is artistic by nature, considers the beauty that she can create an essential part of herself, and enjoys sharing her knowledge in this area. Cindy is an exceptional cook and looks forward to sharing that passion with you.

As the founder and owner of an agency for 11 years, On the Wings of Angels, providing non-medical in-home care for adults, she has a vast amount of knowledge to share concerning the elderly and aging, especially Alzheimer’s. In 2008, Ms. Murdoch trained under Dr. Lynn Serper learning the Serper Method and became a certified Cognitive Educator.

Her hobbies include hiking, quilting, photography, arts and crafts, writing, gardening, animals and getting back to the basics.

As the year 2011 drew to a close, it was announced that homesteadbound was to receive the crown of New Hubber of the Year for 2011. Homesteadbound expresses much gratitude to her peers who voted her to be 2011’s New Hubber of the Year. She would also like to thank HubPages, many dear friends, fans, followers and readers for supporting her with their loyalty and affection over the last five months (her first 5 months on HubPages).

“I know I could have not done this without so many of the wonderful people I have met on HubPages. I have been blessed by your willingness to help me learn the ropes of both writing and HubPages. Although I could name specific people who have gone above and beyond the call of duty, I will not mention anyone by name for fear of omitting someone - please accept my gratitude. You know who you are! These five months have been the most exciting months of my life. I am truly humbled and honored. Thank you!”
