Somehow, an entire month has passed since my last blog post. Believe me, I've thought about it. I've had about a million different ideas of things to write about. But I've also spent 347 hours in the garden, put up at least 112 ears of corn, 28 cans of green beans, and I've lost track… Continue reading Bloom Where You’re Planted
Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is? I have. Have you ever been "stuck" in a rut? In a funk? I have. Have you ever prayed ever-so-diligently that the Lord would reveal your purpose & then waited (and waited) for what seemed like an eternity, only to not hear what you thought… Continue reading Purpose In Life
I know. I totally just threw you with that title, right? I am mind blown. Like literally trying to form the words that are a jumbled up thought process in my mind. I. Can't. Even. right now. Like, I get it. But, I don't, because the human heart is so ugly. Let's just… Continue reading Dying to the EGO & Self-Forgetfulness
It's been FOR-EV-ER since we have been able to give a farm update. And honestly, there isn't a whole lot to report (or so I originally thought).

All the things that are born, all the things that sprout, and pretty much all the things that make me sneeze. There is something about this time of year. A time of new birth, renewal,… Continue reading All the things that bloom
Lately, we've been trying really hard to eat better, not waste as much food (overspending on perishables), and actually cook. I would like to tell you it's super easy & cheap..but it really isn't any more expensive to eat healthy then it is to eat junk...it's the trial and error process of figuring out what… Continue reading Meal Prepping – Waste Not Want Not

As a kid, I had dreams of becoming a lawyer (too many Perry Mason episodes, I guess), but then reality, even in early childhood discouraged me from… Continue reading When did we stop dreaming?
So I was sitting in bed the other night, and had the TV on (truth be told I don't watch it a lot), and heard a commercial for a weight loss program, and the question asked in it was "How do you show up to life each day?" (or some version of that) For… Continue reading How Do You Show Up to Life Each Day?
2017 is MY year! Can you hear me ROAR? 2015 had me feeling like I was laying in a bar ditch waiting on the buzzards to find me, 2016 I crawled out & found the light at the end of the tunnel, and this year I'm headed to the top of the mountain! Ok,… Continue reading 3 Tips for Staying on Track with your Health Goals
