Back to Eden: Barrenness to Abundance

This is the start of our 3rd year on this property. Lately I had been really discouraged about all the things we need to do, and the things we haven't been able to accomplish (goats, windows, roof, doors, floors, kitchen, bathrooms, etc...) But then, I happened across an old picture of the place before we … Continue reading Back to Eden: Barrenness to Abundance

Obedience

Well it's good to be back home. We were finally given the green light to come home from the hospital and for the time being, Baby #3 is staying put. The whole experience was exhausting for me, even being on bed rest for 24 hours. I realized something though and God taught me through the … Continue reading Obedience

When my Faith Feels Hypocritical

I have to admit defeat and confess my weaknesses. Today I sucked at being a compassionate mom. The only boast I have in my parenting after today is that I kept my kids alive. (Joking, I'm joking... Well sort of...) I had a prenatal appointment that was rescheduled from my last terrible, horrible, no good, … Continue reading When my Faith Feels Hypocritical

Update on My Boy

Little man has seemed better today; more agreeable and pleasant all around. He even managed to go potty on his own all day, and several of them were without my prompting him! Hooray for progress!! We're still waiting on results from some labs sent off Monday, and depending on whether or not they rule out … Continue reading Update on My Boy

Homestead Name and Logo Reveal

My husband and I have been praying on starting a business to help sustain our animal feed costs.  The answer I got came from Proverbs 31:18: She sees that her trading is profitable and her lamp does not go out at night. That among other passages of scripture and much time in prayer led us … Continue reading Homestead Name and Logo Reveal

Mom Life: The 2nd Kid

I get now why so many articles suggested spacing your children at least 4 years apart.Two kids in diapers at once is rough.  Dinner tonight took me two tries. Do you have any inkling of just how difficult it is to focus on making a decent b├ęchamel sauce with two kids screaming? The baby spat … Continue reading Mom Life: The 2nd Kid

My Firm Foundation

"Jesus you're my firm foundation. I know I can stand secure. Jesus, you're my firm foundation. I put my trust in Your Holy Word..." We're almost through this trial of temporary homelessness. We signed the papers for closing Friday! We have our homestead! I walked the property with my son yesterday and my eyes welled … Continue reading My Firm Foundation

Gypsies

Crashing in our worship pastor's basement isn't exactly my ideal living situation. It's been over a week and we still have no concrete timeline pertaining to our occupancy/closing on our new place. We are in between homes; wanderers, strangers, nomads. Like the Romani people (minus the fortune telling) who lived as wanderers making a living … Continue reading Gypsies

It Is Well

http://vevo.ly/aLpzul From the outside of our situation, one would think it is horrible. And that's understandable. I have a hard time making sense of things myself- we pay all our bills, my husband has a good job, we pray over every decision before we act, and yet somehow, in spite of all those things, we … Continue reading It Is Well
