"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:3-5

About Me

Oregon, United States
I am a happy, Christian, wife and post-homeschooling mother. I have spent the last several years homeschooling and now I am "adjusting" to a new season of life as "empty nester". In 2010 we moved to be Host/Caretakers at a Bible Camp. We look at our ministry here as preparing the way for the gospel to be shared as well as encouraging believers in their daily walk. I am a farmgirl at heart and love the country, I love gardening and food preserving. I also, love tea parties!! I also have a Titus 2 heart and want to share with anyone willing to listen and learn. I love having friends over and teaching them how to make bread or put up pickles. And as we work, I love to encourage them to love their husbands and their children and to be Keepers at Home and all that implies and I love that you let me do that here!! Hope you enjoy visiting my farm and walking through a journey in life with me.......I hope at some point in time I can encourage you in your walk and in your home..........

Our daughter left for England June 2nd....she was our last one home, so our home feels very empty sometimes. My husband and I are enjoying time together, but there is an adjustment when that last child is gone.............

One of her friends is taking very good care of us while she is gone. Her and her mom have come over just about every week for the past few weeks for dinner and movie night. Tonight we ended up playing spoons instead.......
a bit of a riot!!

We ate on the front porch where it is nice and cool. The menu was Tamale Pie, Cool Tossed Salad, Chips and Salsa........which they make and sell
right here in Bend!!
Then of course we cannot forget desert. I am so happy to have this fun cake pan of my mothers.....

Mmmmm......Strawberry Banana Cake. Betty Crockers Banana Cake, I used honey and part whole wheat flour, topped with Whipped Cream sweetened with honey and Strawberries.

To top it all off with dinner and desert, a nice pitcher of iced tea! I experimented with 3 different teas, kind of cleaning out my stash. ;) One tea ball is Lavender Tea, one is Cinnamon Spice, 2 Harney and Sons "Floral Boquet" and a sprig of Mint from the garden. Wow! That's a loaded tea!! It was a hit! They thought we should bottle it and sell it. :D

We are very thankful for good friends and good times...................
