For a long time now, my husband and I have been talking about selling our home and moving into the country. Not just to get away from the city, but to start living a self-sustaining life. Rick would like to grow his own food, raise livestock, and make everything he needs to survive.
For the past year and a half (since Jack was born), I have been learning how to cook from scratch. I rarely buy a box mix or use anything that is a ready-made product. I love the sense of pride I feel when I serve my family food that I made.
Just recently, I’ve started s-l-o-w-l-y entering into the world of sewing. I’d love to make actual clothing someday, but for now, I’m sticking with cloth napkins and patches for my jeans.
I saw this giveaway on a blog I was just recently introduced to, and I thought I’d share it with my readers who may be interested in homestead living. It’s a set of 10 DVDs called Homestead Blessings, and it is a curriculum for teaching women how to keep a home. To borrow words from their website, they encourage the building and strengthening of God-honoring family life.
Go on over to this website and enter for your chance to win these DVDs. If you win, invite me over to watch them with you!!!
