About Me

Hi, my name is Leah and I was raised in Ohio’s Amish Country where I met my high school sweetheart and soon after became Mrs. Yoder.

headshot-2016An exchange student to Australia, I earned $15 a week writing for the local newspaper and telling them about my journeys.  It was this experience that birthed in me a vivacious love for travel… and a knack for writing.

I spent a few years as a travel agent after college helping others make their dreams a reality, but now that our family has grown to 3 kiddos, Jackson (7), Olen (5), and Cecilia (3), I’m a full-time wife, mother, and teacher.  Yes, we homeschool!

About a year in our marriage, my husband and I were introduced to Dave Ramsey.  We’ve been budgeting fanatics ever since!  Who knew though that one day there would be three more to budget for?  And while I thought giving up control was hard whilst sitting on a plane,  motherhood has proved to be an even harder feat!   I hope you’ll join me as I talk about our desire to live purposefully and frugally, while still traveling a lot (with and without our kiddos).

So how did the name Yoder Toter come about?  After welcoming our first son, my dad started affectionately referring to him as “Yoder Toter” and it stuck!  In our area, a Yoder Toter is slang for a large van used to “tote” around Amish.  While we still have a few kids to go before we need one – and we aren’t Amish- I dream of spending a lot of time with my kids on the road.
