The Importance Of Good Men

As we celebrated Father’s Day yesterday, I wanted to share my thoughts about something I feel very strongly about. Today, more than ever with society unleashing so many things as a norm that was once considered offensive, our boys need good men for role models. The role of the man in a house is very […]

God’s Miracles On Our Off-Grid Homestead

  God has blessed us SO greatly in SO many ways over the years, but the last two have been beyond awing!  It just would not be right if we did not share these blessings with you because as it says in Matthew we are supposed to be a light! “14 You are the light […]

2016 Goals & Weeding: What do they have in common?

There’s no way 2016 objectives and weeding the garden have anything in common.  Maybe not from first glance but really they do.  I’ll get to what that is later on.  First, I want to share with you (because many have asked) our 2016 goals. We set our objectives for the year on New Year’s Day […]
