~ Welcome to our family blog! ~

I hope you enjoy following our journey as the Lord blesses, challenges, and compels us to grow deeper in our faith.


Dad and Mom

Almost twenty-seven years ago, Dad and Mom were wed.  They have been faithfully serving the Lord ever since in blessed marriage, and have endeavoured to raise all of their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.

They have always put God first and foremost in their marriage, followed by their family.  God has truly blessed us with wonderful parents.

We Six Kiddos
 
The Lord closed Mom's womb after my brother and I were born, but ten years later He graciously grew our family through adoption, blessing us with my four precious sisters, all of whom were born in China.  We have been sooooo blessed!


Our Farmhouse


The Barns


Bush View

We own and operate a 420 acre dairy farm where we milk sixty cows and raise another 75 or so replacement heifers.  We also have seven cats, one German Shepherd, two Toy Poodles (Which my brother claims aren't really dogs! Harrumph!!!), three horses and one pony. 


Mischief and her foal, Gria

Sadly, Gria died recently, at seven months of age.

    It looks wonderful! I'm sorry that I haven't been active on the board to be a big help in answering questions. It's been one of those months of constant stuff...and family stuff that needs to be the focus right now.

    Blessings,
