"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..........

Thought I would join in on the fun over at Sharon's blog...
Casaubon's Book. She tells all about it, check it

Here is my update....
Planted Something:
Inside have planted cabbage, broccoli,
cherry tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, various herbs,
squashes, cucumbers, beans, hollyhock, ......
Outside have planted lettuce, carrots, spinach, onions,
potatoes, radishes, beets, kale.....
Harvest Something:
Too early, but we did eat the cabbage sprouts that
I thinned out. They were really good on a baked
potatoe with cheese for lunch!
Reduce Waste:
Used old newspapers to make pots, also used some
egg cartons and toilet paper rolls.
Preparation & Storage:
Have been organizing my canning pantry and working
on a years food supply. Lately have been canning beans.
Did Boston Baked Beans and have done
some Pork and Beans ......
We serve dinner at the Shepherds House
once a week. That is our local mission. Last week I
made pasta, vegetarian spaghetti sauce and sent
cones for the ice cream.
Eat the Food:
I have been trying to use up some of what is in
my canning pantry. Eating the applesauce
and using up jam, alot of jam left. And....
we did eat sprouts........
