Welcome! Our family (3 generations) moved to this farm about 7 years ago. We were what I call "moderns" living the "normal" American life. We were city people. We were active in our church, homeschooled our boys (for 17 years now!) and lived the conventional Christian life.
Then God spoke! One of those instances when the Word just jumps out at you, dances around awhile and lands in your heart to dwell there for awhile. Scriptures that talked of reliance on God...for everything...not relying on others....for anything....and scriptures that talked of the wise man who looked to the future, saw the dangers and prepared himself against the day. We came to realize that we relyed on others for EVERYTHING!!! God began moving in our hearts to change our in a more self-sufficient way that would cause us to rely on Him more. He was wooing us to the country.

So....7 years ago, we left the big city, moved to the country (a miraculous story that I will share another day) and bought a little farm. We raise almost all of our own food and medicine. We cook almost everything from scratch (another story!) and can, dehydrate and freeze our garden bounty for winter. We are so thankful to God for his provision and blessings and for taking us out of the mundane city life to this life full of wonder and excitement...where every day is an adventure...where His handiwork is evident everywhere we look.

We hope to share some of our adventures here....thanks for dropping in

  6. Hi, I am a city girl who loves to bake--thanks for the gluten tip--I am going to try that today. Quick question though--where do you get your materials and such for home-schooling? I keep thinking that I want to homeschool my littles, but finding the right connections to get started is not easy--the state wants the money for keeping kids in their 'plan'.

  7. Shrina,
    Please email me and I will do what I can to point you to the homeschooling information.
