I'll be honest, humility is difficult for me. In part because I never really understood humility as a virtue growing up. In my house, humility and meekness were seen as undesirable and signs of weakness. I was groomed from a young age to be assertive. It wasn't my nature then. I wasn't really aggressive enough … Continue reading Walking in Humility
Man, I have been wrestling with this question for MONTHS. Regardless what your current opinion is, I'd like to encourage you to follow me on this thought train through Scripture and just hear me out as I share with you my process of prayer and meditation on the subject over the last few months. And … Continue reading Are Mandated Masks for Worship Biblical?
Our time is limited, therefore it is precious.
Idk about the rest of you, but trimming hooves wears. Me. Out. Something about the physical resistance coupled with the mental focus required is exhausting. I had a podcast playing on my phone to help me focus- I know... Makes no sense... - and still it took over an hour. Granted, I'm much more confident … Continue reading Goat Hoof Trimming Day
Well, nothing like a bloody toddler to start your Sunday worship... We got to church this morning (praise God they opened it! Finally...) And I had all the kids go potty before service. My oldest went on his own, but my daughter wanted my help so she didn't soil her pretty dress... Girls... So I … Continue reading Consequences of Disobedience

Different verses of that passage … Continue reading Equipping Children with the Word
I'm intentionally trying something new this year that I sort of fell into over last spring and summer with homeschooling. I tend to burn out really easily. I get bored of routine and crave something new... Which is probably why I'm so in love with my visionary husband. He doesn't see himself that way, but … Continue reading What we do in our Homeschool “off” weeks
It's that time of year again! This is what it looks like when you can and/or dry your late summer harvest. And this is what it looks like doing all that while wearing a 7 month old in a backpack carrier I don't blame her, I'm sure she gets bored back there. I've been in … Continue reading Busy in the Kitchen
Oh guys... I have so many 1/2 started posts... Truthfully, this is our busiest time of year between reviewing the kids' lessons and prepping for new material, working out in the gardens, taking care of the animals-- our days are full, but in a good way.I've actually contacted a landscaping contractor to come help with … Continue reading Homestead Update
