2015 – The Year of Change!

It's hard to believe that we are at the beginning of another new year!  If I had to give a theme to the year 2015 it would have to be the "year of change". So many things changed for me personally in 2015.  I went from a size 18/20 to a size 14! I can't tell you how...

He’s Dragging Me Kicking and Screaming….

I'm talking about my social media guru (aka my son Jeremy).  He's been working here at the farm lately and talking to me about the fact that I'm a social media dinosaur.  I told him I was on Facebook...is there more? Evidently quite a bit more!  So as he drags me...

The Wedding!!

We planned a small intimate wedding at my mama’s home. We invited immediate family and just a handful of friends who had helped to pray us through the last few months. It was a clear, sunny winter day. We were hoping we would be able to get to our cabin on top of the...

The Proposal (again!)

The Courtship

As we talked about how we could get to know each other on a personal level and explore how Abba might be leading us, the southern gentleman said that his preference was to continue to spend the majority of our time studying the Scriptures but to also begin to have...

The Fleece

As our times of study continued, I saw the southern gentleman get closer and closer to the truth. It reminded me of the times I taught my children to read - those "light bulb" moments when they "got it". I was occasionally asked questions by my family about the...

Farm Life….

Pardon my absence...I've been busy dealing with this....Yep, got a call while in town...."I think your field is on fire!"  Got home and immediately called the fire department. Neighbors came from all around to help. These guys were awesome - the Mosheim Volunteer Fire...

The Word

The southern gentleman began to use the word "love"... not in a light-hearted way but very seriously.  I had to put my foot down hard! I told him in no uncertain terms that I did not love him nor did I think he knew me well enough to love me. After all, we were just...
