I’ve been married to my husband for 27 years. We have 7 children from early 20’s down to early elementary grades. I’ve homeschooled for 13 years and have been a suburban homesteader for 7 years. Our home is on a little less than an acre. We have a front/side yard no till garden (next to our garage) with vegetables, herbs, berries, and perennial flowers that is visible to all neighbors driving, biking or walking by. Our chicken coop and run, and two Layens horizontal bee hives are behind the garden. The garden and chickens draw in neighbors who are out for a walk into our yard for conversation, and has been an outreach tool to help build community. Jesus is the firm foundation of our lives upon which everything is built.
