I grew up as a city girl but always dreamed of living in the country. That dream came true about ten years ago, and since then I’ve enjoyed experiencing new things.
We’ve raised dogs, cats, poultry, equines, and pigs.
I have a garden where I grow old favorites as well as experiment with new plants and organic methods.
We also have a young orchard with apple, cherry, peach, and pear trees, plus three blueberry bushes.
I also enjoy foraging for wild edibles such as raspberries, blackberries, gooseberries, and mushrooms.
I homeschooled our two children for fourteen years, and they are both now high school graduates. Upon entering the empty nest phase of life, I decided to start blogging because I wanted to encourage other homeschool moms.
About twenty years ago, God started talking to me about homeschooling. (You can read about that in “The Birth of Curren Christian Academy.”) I remember the fears I had along the way and what helped me get through. I want to share that with others who may need some encouragement or a vision.
If you’re a homeschool mom then you might like to skim my Homeschooling category.
I’m also a strong Christian. I’ve seen God at work in our lives through the years, and how He has answered my prayers.
I want to share those stories, too, because they’re dear to me, and because I know there are some people who struggle with their faith, and still others who don’t know Him at all. I hope that something I write might help them to see Him at work in their lives, or encourage them to give Him a chance. I hope you’ll visit my Inspirational category to read some of my stories.
