“Apathy is a dangerous thing to have in your heart….”

My heart change journey began about a year ago. It seems like a lifetime, but honestly, it wasn’t that long ago. I’ve seen the most growth in the past 8 months, and many times I have to remember that just because my heart is changing, it doesn’t mean that others forget the way I treated them before this journey. If…

“Give it a try…,” whisper’s the heart.

I am dog tired this morning. I am exhausted, my body aches, I have a headache (on top of other womanly issues today), and the cloudy sky is not a friend to my already downtrodden body. I woke up early, made husband his coffee and lunch — drank a quart of coffee myself, it seemed. My eyes are still scratchy…

{Raising Dairy Goats} From someone who’s never owned them….

A couple of months ago my neighbor brought me some fresh goats milk, and I have been hooked ever since. I could not believe the richness and flavor that was GOOD. I had witnessed people drinking goat’s milk before — you know, that nasty odor-full sour milk. But this was nothing like that. I would soon find out that it…

All in the name of Love + Humility

  I used to be a hateful person. There, I said it. So when someone posted a rather indirect nasty post on facebook the other day about my blog, I felt that green monster popping back up. But then, the calm came, and the offense left, and my life went on just like it had been, just 3 short minutes…

Homestead Cooking | {Fresh} Homemade Lemonade

Last week, the backwoods kid and I spent a day at his grandparents farm. As always, everything at grandma and grandad’s is better than what’s at home. And it just so happened that today, it would be lemonade. That child can drink the heck out of some lemonade. So, being on our journey of “all natural” and less processed, I…

Homestead Cooking | Homemade Strawberry Shortcake {Seasonal}

Let’s just take a moment to wallow in the pity together, shall we? The horrible realization that strawberry season is quickly coming to an end…..oh, the horror!! But with strawberry season ending, that means so many yummy veggies, peaches (one of my fave seasons!), and eventually apple’s (another fave, even better than strawberries and peaches) , are well on their…

When God is Silent….

It happens to all of us at some point in our lives. Some of us more than others…. That drowning feeling that God doesn’t listen… …that God doesn’t answer prayers. …that God doesn’t care. …that God doesn’t understand my needs, my wants, my heartache. …that if God cared so much about me, He would make me a better person, a…

{Daily Life} | When motherhood is overwhelming…

If you could have seen me that morning, you would have seen that I pulled my hair back that day. You’d notice that I had a double cup of coffee rather than the usual one, and I’ve been staring at a blank computer screen for well over an hour. You’d notice that my eyes are bloodshot and watery.And I have…

Daily Ramblings | A New Creation…an old life….

He’s tugging on my shirt, asking for attention. The phone is ringing off the hook — twenty different directions were facing me the other morning. I wasn’t sure what to tackle first, the five loads of laundry in the hallway or putting the phone down (for the eighteenth time) and getting into the word…something I should do more than I…

A Work of Heart | A simple life….

My months have been running together recently. Not just the days, the weeks….but the months. It seems like just a month ago we were celebrating Christmas, singing in the New Year, and kissing Valentine’s Day goodbye. But here it is, another month, another day, and more on my plate than I can handle. These past few months have been trying…

Praying Without Ceasing, even when it’s hard

Prayer is one of those things that I’m extremely good at sometimes, and is extremely non-existent at other times. In those amazing times and spans where I’m fully focused on God with prayer in my life, life becomes so amazing, light and care free. I feel like I’m dancing on air most days, and even those hard moments that come…

Seeking God During Those Simple Everyday Moments

I’ve been talking to God in my head alot this past week, especially about my prayer list for 2014. One of my worst character traits is becoming easily overwhelmed, even with simple things. So one of the things I’ve been praying a lot about recently is strength and direction on how to overcome that. But this week has been different,…

There’s a heartache behind every door

I can’t stand fake people. Those people who come up to you and tell you that you look wonderful in that outfit — you know, the one you only wear in public during “that time of the month” because you’re too bloated to fit into your already way too tight regular jeans?  Yeah, you know… Those people who tell you…

The Book of Job and a Surprising Lesson

I started getting back into the word several weeks ago. I had been slacking, big time. I have had a lot on my mind in the past 2 months, especially this past month. When I asked where I should begin, I was lead to the book of Job. When I say “lead”, I mean, I really don’t know how that…
