I find myself feeling more and more ignorant about a particular theological subject and would like to know your opinion on it, so please feel free to respond. I'm not looking for an argument, I'm not looking for a "your right, I'm wrong" response. I honestly want to know what exactly I am missing, because … Continue reading A theological question
First World Problems
It's amazing the things in life that we take for granted. We are so lucky to have power in our home, clean running water, the choice of how we want our children to be educated. I am visiting this topic because yesterday our cistern ran out of water (or at least I thought it had, … Continue reading First World Problems
Time to get back to work
I love my job. It's work, and it forces me to be motivated, but when I am working I love it. For those of you who don't know I am a Mary Kay consultant. I have been for over 9 years. I was a director for a period of time until my son had major … Continue reading Time to get back to work
We totally overspent yesterday. We knew we would, and I know it's going to save us a ton of money in the long run, but it still sucks. How did we overspend? Thanks to some awesome friends of ours (you know who you are!) we discovered a restaurant supply store right next to Cs work. … Continue reading Grocery Shopping
I set up a GoFundMe account yesterday. This should be the only time we need one, but this will prevent us from having to stall the project for 5 -6 months. I realize that it's a long shot in getting anyone to help us with our project, but I figure even if nobody donates anything … Continue reading Fundraising
The silver lining of biodiesel
No matter what happens, no matter how bad things get, there really is one thing I can rely on. The God works in mysterious ways. As much as I wanted to get a car first, as much as I really wanted us to have 2 cars as soon as possible, things are working out the … Continue reading The silver lining of biodiesel

It's a really nice, large cabin that's probably close to the size of the house we are currently living in. This is perfect for us because we wont have to … Continue reading We are officially moving!!
What life means to me
It seems that as we get closer and closer to our goal I realize more and more about what we are doing and why we are doing it. At first it started out as us wanting to finally be self sufficient. We are at a place in our lives where we can't be living like … Continue reading What life means to me
It’s not about you
I know I have mentioned this before, but I get frustrated at people very easily. It's a huge flaw, a giant flaw, a flaw that I really try to work on. As I try and work through this flaw of mine I have come to realize that I get frustrated at the selfishness of other … Continue reading It’s not about you
This time of year has always been really tough on me. It's a combination of winding everything down, paying for gifts and all the other Christmas who-ha, my birthday (which is really more of a hassle than anything else, especially since the lovely state of Kentucky likes to make your car taxes and tags due … Continue reading Christmas Miracles
