The Need for Discipleship

I have to say, for the majority of my life, I lived very sheltered. Not sheltered from culture, no! I went to public school, rode the bus (and saw and heard more than I'd ever want my own kids to) and attended my fair share of band camps. No, I was sheltered from the Truth. … Continue reading The Need for Discipleship

What I’ve been Reading

I set a goal in January of 2018 to read more books. "He said to him, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind." Matthew 22:37 With that in mind, one of the best ways to love the Lord with your mind is to always … Continue reading What I’ve been Reading

What Keeps me Going

I've just sort of accepted the fact that my physical body is temporary. My body is broken and I struggle with chronic health issues stemming from autoimmunity triggered by prescription medications and birth control usage. God has redeemed many of the issues I faced in my initial confrontation with sickness 5 years ago, one of … Continue reading What Keeps me Going

Children on the Homestead

We have 3 kiddos babies. They're 3, 1.5, and 1 month. Babies. As the Mama duck around here, you might imagine it's difficult to wrangle all my ducklings outside while I do gardeney things, and you'd be right. I took everyone outside last week, and it was the first time all 3 of us have … Continue reading Children on the Homestead

Kitchen Remodel: update

When it rains it pours. Not only are we seemingly 5 steps farther from our homesteading goals for this year, we've run headlong into problems that constitute the need for emergency repairs. We had an emergency roof repair that cost us every bit of our "goat money". The fascia board had pulled away from the … Continue reading Kitchen Remodel: update

Decluttering Room by Room: Kitchen

I'm short on kitchen space. Until we get the whole durn kitchen gutted and redone, I have to find ways to make it functional. For now that means getting rid of the clutter and junk. My first priority was to maximize useable counter space. There isn't much to start with so it needs to be … Continue reading Decluttering Room by Room: Kitchen

Decluttering Room by Room: Living Room, Kid’s Toys

I've finally done it. I snapped. I stepped on the last block, action figure, hot wheels car, etc. I have heard the last irritating jingle! I went to the garage and I got a box. And I'm currently filling it with all of the toys that drive me nuts. In fact, that's what it's labeled- … Continue reading Decluttering Room by Room: Living Room, Kid’s Toys

Unapologetically Mom.

I'm so blissed out right now. Thank the Lord, postpartum weepies haven't hit (yet?) so I'm still Mary, treasuring these things in my heart, with just a tiny bit of brain fog and emotionally raw word vomit. I keep thinking about when my children first came to visit their brother in the hospital. It was … Continue reading Unapologetically Mom.
