I celebrate Shabbat and His feasts...our "dress rehearsals"!
I am mama to 4 awesome young men, am daughter to my mama (who lives next door!), am aunt to my niece Makayla and mama-in-law to the lovely women who married my sons.
I have homeschooled my boys for 26 years (2 more to go!). I love to spend time with my boys - working, playing, talking, laughing, praying, studying the Word. I admire and enjoy them all - they are amazing!
I am, quite unexpectedly, living life as a single woman. I am learning to give thanks in all things.
I own a farm, have beef cows, milk cows, goats, chickens, bees, cats, dogs and a horse.
I once helped butcher a cow and still help butcher chickens each year. I've worked bees, helped birth farm babies, helped do field surgery, tubed goats, buried animals I've loved and loved on new babies each spring.
Goat babies are the cutest creatures on the farm.
I don't know how to knit (but I want to learn!). I play the keyboard badly - but want to do better. I am learning guitar - slowly. I love to dig in the dirt and grow a big garden. I don't like to shop (except for garage sales and farm stores!) I love Dave Ramsey's teachings. I love to scrapbook.
I love to laugh.
I am lost without my Ipod - it's my other brain.
I am passionate about herbs.
I am a soap maker.
I am learning Hebrew...slowly....
I like to milk goats but not cows. I don't like to work the bees. I like to sit under the tree and drink lemonade on a hot summer day. I like to work in the greenhouse.
I don't watch network T.V....ever. I love to read but don't have as much time as I'd like. I've been known to wake my boys in the middle of the night to look at stars. I love a hammock. I love to write. I wish I could paint (not walls...pictures!)
I don't understand why I can't ever find the end to the pile of dirty clothes or why there are always rocks in my dryer. Laundry rooms should be bigger.
I like to read anything by Elisabeth Elliot or Edith Schaeffer. I like to listen to podcasts. I use the The Scriptures and like to research the original Hebrew. I attend the most awesome church in the world.
I think Ron Paul is right.
I think Jane Austen was a genius.
I have amazing friends.
I am an optimist.
I make mistakes often.
I am learning to see my Father in all things and to give Him glory in all things.
I have a hard time doing nothing.
I wish I could go to the beach for a week!
I am broken and bruised. I am a sinner saved by grace.
