July Goals

Goals | In The Garden No Comments

July is here and so are the lazy-hazy days of summer.  Around here that means lots of outdoor time, playing, swimming,  keepin’ the grill hot and the drinks cold!  We’re steadily working on our Top 100 To-Do List for summer.  We’re watching the garden grow and have already had our first vine ripened tomatoes.  Lovely.

With all this fun we want to make sure we take the balanced approach for our July Goals and keep them simple. Read More

Mid-month Progress Report for March

Goals No Comments

Honestly, we cannot believe it’s the middle of March.  Where in the world did the time go?!

We are having a blast working on this site and sprucing up our real life provision rooms.  As challenging as it is to have goals, it’s even more challenging when you have a friend saying, “Look at the calendar!  Two more weeks!  How are those goals coming along?”  That accountability will getcha!

Natural Remedies Found In The Garden

In The Garden 10 Comments

My garden does not whet the appetite; it satisfies it. It does not provoke thirst through heedless indulgence, but slakes it by proffering its natural remedy. Amid such pleasures as these have I grown old.
gardening quote by Epicurus

In every home I have lived as an adult I have planted.  I’ve planted for beauty first.  As I’ve grown older, and wiser I hope, I’ve planted for food and for healing.  There is so much to learn and as much as I know, I find I am yet a baby in this gardening journey.  I’m fascinated most by the herbs in my garden.  For thousands of years people have found healing from snipping a leaf here or digging for root there.  I have so much to learn!  I am a firm believer that all we need for staying well can be found in what our Creator has already given us.  That being said, I am not an expert.  Read More

Review: Year of Plenty

Blog No Comments

“For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.  And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, including the new bodies he has promised us.”  Romans 8:22-23

I was reading the Fuller Focus magazine a few months ago and came across an article about a Fuller alum who had written a rather intriguing book.  I was so fascinated by that article, that I immediately got online and ordered the book.  Basically, Pastors Craig and Nancy Goodwin one day got a harebrained idea.   Read More

Kristina’s Mid-month Progress Report

Goals | In The Garden No Comments

Wow!  Is this month flying by!  Sometimes it feels like I blink and a week is gone.

So the question is, how am I doing towards my February goals?  Not too bad if I do say so myself!

The buckets in front are the 2nd round of peas. I used these buckets for tomatoes in the summer so planting peas will help rejuvenate the soil.

Daja’s Mid-month Progress Report

Goals | In The Garden No Comments

Well, February is half-way through.  It’s been a busy month to be sure.  I had a birthday, we dedicated our youngest son, three of my boys are training to “star” in a Kung-Fu training video produced by their Sifu, three of my kids started taking piano lessons, my daughter hosted a book club (George MacDonald’s The Light Princess) with one of our homeschool co-ops and we had a Valentine’s Day party with our other co-op.  It’s been BUSY!  To top it all off, we had a cold we all passed around for a week.

And yet….. Read More
