My husband and I feel drawn to the homesteading lifestyle for a number of reasons: faith, family, sustainability, productivity, Simplicity. Simple doesn’t mean easy. But, we are of the mindset that anything worth having is worth the work it takes to get it. Simply said, we enjoy literally eating the fruits of our labors and reaping a harvest.

There are so many different components to a homestead lifestyle that I’ve broken it up topically into subjects I am currently focusing on. They are as follows: Animals we keep (right now just dogs and an angora rabbit), Gardening, Sewing, Crafting, Cooking. Those are my main topics of focus for now, I’m sure more will follow in the future.
