"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..........

A Bit of Sillyness..........

I Love my crockpot! True confession, how silly is that?!?
A few years ago I found it at a WalMart in another town....I think it looks vintage!! And that is what I Love about it!! Doesn't it remind you of a vintage dishtowel or tablecloth? FUN!
Just a quick tip today before we head over the mountain for the weekend......
Have you ever done this to your roast? Very good. My dear sweet mother taught me this trick and I know several people who do it, you make a hole in the roast with a sharpe knife and put a sliver of garlic in the hole, in a few places spaced out on the roast......yum!
Oh, and by the way, I did not mean to sound like I was complaining yesterday, although I guess I partly was......sorry, I am grateful for being able to purchase a bounty of produce this year!! I am adjusting to that way of thinking. My last year on the other side of the mountain before we moved here, we had the biggest most bountiful garden of our life!! God blessed it and we were able to share and share and can and can. So, the first year I was here and had to spend money for green beans, I actually cried.......yep, real tears, but, like I said, we are figuring it out and someday that will happen here. In the meantime I am feeling very blessed to be able to buy the food I want to preserve for my winter pantry.
