- 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..........

When you walk along the road......
"These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up." Deuteronomy 6:6-7
I have always loved this verse. For some of us it is a huge part of why we decided to homeschool. Having more time to teach our children the things of the Lord without "interference".
Think about the times you can bring God into a conversation during those precious teachable moments with your children. Walking along the road.......for us that was often a country road......do we take time to point out the sky and clouds and how wonderful God made them or as we stop to examine a bug, do we take time to notice all the detail and interesting things God put into its design. Perhaps we come upon a creek, as we spot the first crawdad or fish, do we think of all that went into its design and purpose.........There are so many ways to turn our eyes on Jesus throughout a day no matter where we are. Do we do it?? I encourage you to try!
Blessings to you all today.....if the weather permits, take a walk with your children today......find something to talk about that puts their thoughts towards Heaven!!
