Well, this is my first blog and first post. I wanted it to express what is going on in my life right now. I am not going to start at my birth and tell everything that has happened to me from then to today. I am going to start with today.....
My husband and I have been married for 2 years and 6 months. He is a wonderful man. He is has a tremendous heart for God. Pours himself into God's Word....and he loves me.
We have a desire to live our life sustaining on God's Word and off our bit of land. We live in a neighborhood in Mississippi. We have 4 lots and we are learning to use it. More on a later post on how we are using the land.
As important as living off the land is to me, it is more important to live by God's Word. I was raised Presbyterian. After college, I went to an Assembly of God church primarily. I also went to a Southern Baptist Church for a few years. Not until after Hurricane Katrina, did I realize how "religious" I was. Since my husband and I have not found a church where we live right now, I have plunged myself into God's Word. Brent, my husband, had introduced me to Kenneth Copeland Ministries. I was a little leery of his ministry, a Word of Faith ministry(they had a reputation of being the blab it and grab it faith) but I thought, well, I am a big girl and if I don't like what I hear...well then I won't listen to it....
Well, I have heard. It is not that at all...they teach God's Word. I have grown more under his ministry then any of the ones that I went to before.
Disclaimer here: I am not saying that the Presbyterians, Assembly of God or Southern Baptist do not preach the Word of God. They do. It just did not reach me at that time in my life.
On this blog I will sharing a lot...my favorite blog sites, recipes (friends at work will be happy), gardening tips, household tips, being a helpmet, exercises, eating, farmers markets, etc.
I hope you enjoy my eclectic blog.
