Our Story



My name is Jennifer Dayley, and I'm the founder & owner of The Healing Place, LLC (home of Meraki By Nature™ product line).

I'm an author & blogger, and educator of natural health & sustainable, self-reliant living. I'm a medical & health freedom advocate, homeschooler, & simplifier of all the things. I like to believe, that I'm living the highly desired homestead-ish life. Hence my name since 2008 - The Modern Pioneer Mom™


My husband, Kirk, is my biggest supporter & a fantastic Utah realtor. When he's not helping to sell & purchase homes, he's often working right along my side.

We have 3 daughters, 1 son, 3 "husband-sons", and 8 (so far) grand-babies.

I am rooted in Faith, Family, Freedom, Friends, & Food... as well as Nature, Music, Sewing, 
Health, Cooking, Gardening, Snuggly Blankets, Bare Feet, & all things Creative.


We exist to "Bring Health Back To Nature & Nature Back To Health™." 

We exist  to help our Customers (& Clients) live healthy, self-sufficient lives, while leaving a clean footprint on the earth, & a heritage of lasting legacy for their posterity. 


We exist to bring Relief to less fortunate people through causes & organizations such as 100 Humanitarians International... which allowed our daughter, Ashlynn, the opportunity to serve in Kenya, Africa 3 times as a teen, in just 18 months time (Photo below).

Our donations to this organization in particular, support girl's Rescue Centers (escaping early marriage & FGM), building Garden Boxes & Garden Towers, Milk Cows, funding the Epernat Cultural Centre on the Massai Mara, Feminine Hygiene Kits, Educational School Fees, & more.

YOUR purchases assist us in this beautiful effort.


And most of all, we exist to give glory to, and testimony of God's hand in ALL things... This company exists because of Him... Happiness happens because of Him... Healing happens because of Him... Family happens because of Him... Life happens because of Him.



I've always been fascinated with the self-reliant lifestyle. I'm by no means a "prepper," but I'm very much a DIY-er, and little did I know, that would cross over to our family's health & home-education as well.

Through getting rid of toxicity & learning how to nourish myself, I was able to heal from over 20 health issues naturally, ditch 18 years of pharma drugs, & shed 50 lbs.

Then my husband was able to shed 50 lbs too, and our family was able to reduce from 11 meds, down to just 1 (only used when needed, for an auto-immune disease).

I took my & my family's health into my own hands, and then I dove into helping people around the world make their transformation as well. 

  • In 2008 my learning & changing began, and my blog, The Modern Pioneer Mom™ was launched.
  • In 2013 my company, The Healing Place LLC was created.
  • In 2018 our product line, Meraki By Nature™ was born.

When I opened my first mineral makeup company (Mod Minerals™) years ago, I loved formulating & spent quite some time experimenting with ingredients.

One morning as I was getting ready for the day, I was thinking about how I could bring more value to The Healing Place and start expanding what I offer. In an almost instant moment, I knew I needed to create a product line of hand-crafted & hand-made products that honor health & the simple life.

We began with moisturizers & lip balms, but our signature product, Perfect Pearlies™ Toothpaste in a jar, quickly became our #1 seller. Seriously, give it a try, and you'll understand why!

Thank you for visiting, and we hope you'll stay a while. Please feel free to reach out (merakibynatureinfo@gmail.com), if you have any questions. We're also on Instagram, Facebook, & Pinterest!
