Herbal Remedies Aren’t God

I laid in bed with my palm pushing on the side of my head. This pain that would shoot down the side of my head, down my face, into my back and neck—it was absolutely, and definitely, one of the worst pains I had ever experienced in my entire life. I tried everything to make it go away. I tried…

Growing and Drying Your Own Herbs

As a new gardener, I often found the task of growing prize winning tomatoes and succulent melons very daunting. Can I say succulent melons here? Get your head out of the gutter! Gardening has never come naturally to me. But I learn and grow each and every year. I finally began to master tomatoes by the third year of gardening….

Starting a Medicinal Herb Garden

  When you begin your homesteading journey, you typically start because you want to become more self-sufficient. It often looks like getting a few chickens, maybe some goats. You then venture into dairy cows, beef herds, turkeys, large garden plots, canning and preserving, and other expeditious skill sets. But the one thing I most often find surprising is that many…

Homestead Cooking | Homemade Yeast Rolls

  I started my very first job when I was a teenager in high school. It wasn’t some elaborate thing that I wanted. I had big plans in my head of what I wanted to be, and baking wasn’t it. But never-the-less, it was an income for me to spend frivolously. And later in life I’d come to find that I…

Homemade Honey Wheat Bread

I love bread, but my body does not. However, I still have two boys in my house that love bread even more than I do. They could eat some type of bread every single night with dinner and they would be the happiest little things in the whole wide world. Because of that, I’m constantly trying new recipes or perfecting…

My 2017 New Year Goals for Homestead &Life

Last year’s goals were pretty awesome. I honestly didn’t have too many goals for last year. And all but 2 or 3 of them, I accomplished. I like to set realistic goals for myself, and then a few crazy ones just to make it fun. I don’t do the whole “lose 30 lbs” resolution and such. Each year, my goal…

Inexpensive Photography Backdrops & Tips for Homestead Bloggers

Over ten years ago, I began my blogging journey. In the beginning, it was just words. I allowed words to flow out of me and used stock photos if I needed them. Sometimes, I didn’t even use photos. The people who read blogs back then were people who simply enjoyed reading—with or without photos. They were people who enjoyed connecting…

Raising Our Girls to Be Leaders

My Dad didn’t get saved until I was about 5 or so years old. If you remember your beginning walk as a Christian, you know that it takes a long time before you find that groove that you feel comfortable in. Because he was growing and learning each and everyday, I vividly remember him scratching up his Bible, and a…

The Task of Raising Warrior Sons

I can remember when I was pregnant, vividly remember. I remember praying every single night that my child would have a kind and gentle and sweet spirit. I can remember when he was two, and he would just go along with whatever his cousins would tell him to do. I can remember when he was four, and he had such…

Thanksgiving On Our Homestead

My grandmother and Jr striking a pose! Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday. Mostly, because we get to eat lots of food and not feel guilty for it. If you feel guilty, stop it. Stop it right now. Thanksgiving is always very wishy washy for us. When we first got married, we tried to go to “everyone’s” house. And then,…
