Hi, welcome! I am so glad you are here. My name is Anita and here is a little bit about me…

About Me Anita Pulsipher

I’m a Christian, author, blogger, wife, and a stay-at-home mom to four darling children.

Pulsipher Fowler Family

Although our family is far from being super wealthy, we do live what we feel is a truly rich life. By being smart with our income we can travel (on the cheap), do fun things, help others who are in true need, and have the material goods that make life comfortable. Living like we do has allowed us to enjoy the variety of riches that life has to offer.

We all want to keep as much money as we can while still living well. This blog is centered on material and non-material riches and how to make that a possibility. As you can see from the navigation bar at the top, I will be covering living like you are rich from multiple perspectives.

  • Couponing, living frugally, and getting more for less.

  • Decorating on a budget.

  • Non-material riches (pregnancy, motherhood, family life, etc.)

  • Financial Do’s and Don’ts.

  • How to make extra money.

  • Gourmet recipes that can be made at home inexpensively,

  • and other Living Like You Are Rich tips.

My Book 

My sister and I co-wrote the book endorsed by Dr. Laura Schlessinger,  “Living a Rich Life as a Stay-at-Home Mom: How to Build a Secure Financial Foundation for You and Your Children,” which covers many of these topics more in-depth as well.

LiveLikeYouAreRich blog has been featured on the following sites, national publications, and magazines:


I come from a long line of entrepreneurs and successful money-managers. And as a result, I have been taught the ‘Do’s and Don’ts’ of finances. I also worked as the manager to a financial company and studied, read, and implemented many financial principles.

I like to write about much of what I’ve learned about money on this blog.

I am now a stay-at-home mom (my favorite role), wife, homemaker, author, and entrepreneur. 

More about me…


I have always loved decorating, cooking, couponing, fashion, athletics, and thrift shopping. I love blogging about these passions. I was at one time, an office manager of a financial company and found that financial literacy is also a passion I have.

A few years after marrying my now ex-husband, I had our son (1/2 Navajo, 1/2 Caucasian), Denali—named after the National Park and mountain. He is energetic, happy, and determined.

Denali’s birth story.

About Me-
He was a crazy-cute endlessly-energetic five-year-old.
 Now he is a handsome, smart, and kind ten-year-old.

Two years later I had our baby girl. We named her Aurora after the northern lights and the meaning of the ‘dawn’. She was a very gentle and cuddly baby who always loved to be held.
Aurora’s birth story.
 Aurora at three was the perfect combination of sweet and sassy…

She is now eight and one of the most well-rounded little girls I’ve known.
My amazing second husband, Shane, and I got married in October 2018 in the Salt Lake City, Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

He is super kind, supportive, a great father and stepfather, and a hard worker. 
We had Amelia in August 2019.
Amelia’s birth story.

Amelia She is a darling, although as a baby she was really colicky. It was tough! But, she grew out of it.

One of my favorite things is seeing how Denali and Aurora adore Amelia….and now their other little brother, Brighton.

Amelia has now grown into one of the funniest and most energetic toddlers whom I and many of my friends and family have ever met.
She is a riot! We love her energy, curiosity, and craziness… most of the time. 
In April 2021, we had our fourth and final child, Brighton, named after my favorite snowboard resort—snowboarding is a passion of mine.

He was a gentle and fairly easy baby.

He loved to smile and coo at me.

Brighton is pretty content most of the time. 

The three children—adore him; it is the sweetest thing to see!!

He’s now the cutest, and sweetest 2 year old. My whole family would agree that we don’t want him to grow up!

I am truly rich in blessings.

Rewinding the timeline of my life even further…

About Me-

In 2006-2007 I served a mission in Northwest Germany for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I spoke German fluently and learned firsthand the pain this country and its people have gone through since WWI and WWII.

I met many people who were alive during Nazi Germany and they told stories that were depressing and bleak. Yet, some expressed how they found hope and happiness after these tough times, and despite being poor, they led a rich life.

I learned while in Germany and have in my own personal life experiences since, that happiness and ‘a rich life’ are not all materially or money-based.

True happiness/richness in life is determined by a variety of factors. Some factors are material—but most are not.

These truths and tips plus some financial tips are what I blog about here on

Hi Anita,

I came across to your blog about your experience with bottle refusal. I followed most of your tips but with the help of my mom because my son doesn’t want to accept a bottle from. Now, I’m ready to switch him to formula. Did you switch your daughter to a formula in a week? Did she handle it ok? No tummy trouble? I can’t be pumping all the time because I have to scald my milk every time I pump. My breastmilk has a high lipase and my baby doesn’t like the taste of it.
