We, Melissa and Katie, have begun this blog in an effort to encourage families to return to the basics, and in doing so, find contentment in time spent together at home, around the dinner table, or in the backyard. Both of us have been led by our Father to separate ourselves and our families from the way the world is doing things these days and seek His kingdom through a simpler lifestyle. A life where our children eat what He created for us (think meat, vegetables, fruits instead of red dye #40, hydrogenated fats, and high fructose corn syrup!), where we get our hands dirty working in the land He has provided for us (no matter how small the backyard is!), and where we find entertainment in conversations and traditions (not in front of the television!).
Thus begins our journey of living the abundant life through learning, sharing, and experiencing the joys of seeking first the kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33) right here in our own Kentucky homesteads! We hope you’ll join us!
