Welcome to the classic city-girl-gone-country storyline featuring my husband and our three children. I was born and raised in Southern California and married at the age of 20 to a risk-taking entrepreneur in 2010. We escaped the city for a simpler life on a farm in Central Oregon and now we’re raising a family to love Jesus, chickens, horses, and cows.
As long as I can remember, I’ve preferred the old paths. In my opinion, culture has hijacked traditional womanhood and replaced it with a modern edition I find myself disinterested in. My heart isn’t for career or feminism or control but for calling. To become the type of woman God describes in the Scriptures—a woman who serves and matures and loves without complaining.
As the title of this blog states, my heart is for homemaking—to raise littles and to serve the man I love. In many ways, these desires are simply an extension of the people who have spiritually parented us these past several years. You see, my husband and I are avid proponents of missional community—Christians committed to a biblical expression of church and who gather in homes to serve and grow one another. My husband writes about the topic on his blog UnlearnChurch.com.
Through this Bible-based lifestyle, we’ve been blessed with the deep waters of older families who pour out their wisdom on our often dry soil. It is this mode of discipleship that has changed not only our marriage and family but also our walk with God.
It’s my hope that this blog allows me to continue passing on that wisdom with others. Writing is a new endeavor for me. While I have no clue how the Lord might use my words, my hope is that they may be of some value to you on the difficult, yet beautiful journey toward creating the life, family, and home you’ve been called to create.
