Shalom! Peace! Hello!
“Shalom” is taken from the root word shalam, which means “to be safe in mind, body, or estate.” It speaks of completeness, fullness, or a type of wholeness that encourages you to give back – to generously re-pay something in some way.
Two families walking in faith share their daily life experiences while living on the same farm learning to do life together with their 7 children, livestock, and business. This hobby farm turning homestead/ agritourism under the guidance of God our Creator. Returning to the simple life of living off what He provides.
In 2012 God opened up a new way of thinking for our lives and the family. Being blessed with the adoption of our children and starting a hobby farm at the coast of NC. Our dreams were shared with another family who God was also inspiring. Our two families worked along side each other in our community church and with raising our children.
In 2017 God did the most incredible move in our lives. We bought land in the foothills of NC to expand the small hobby farm and to continue to raise our children in an environment that is falling to the wayside in their generation. To share the life that God has given to us and how He has made us who we are today. All by the Grace of God!
We are to use this land not for my own, but as a place where God’s presences resides in all we do. From family, which includes our adoptive and biological children that we homeschool, to fellowship with our neighbors, friends, and guests; to farming with our dairy goats and cows, to everyday life like cooking, cheese making, soap making, farming, and relaxing. We will share what the experiences have taught us or are teaching us. Without God and without relationship, we can not have the peace of God that gives completeness, fullness, or the type of wholeness that encourages us to give back into the lives around us.
God has been doing a lot of growing in us as we have walked through a very changing time in our nation. Returning to the mindset of simplicity and basics in life we are focusing on what He asks of us each day. We do not know what the uncertain times holds, but we do know who holds them! We are getting ready to move into the new season of agritourism in the coming year. We will keep you updated as things progress, we are currently in the testing phase of our products and services. Thank you to all who are a part helping strengthen and encourage us.
May the Lord bless you
and protect you,
May the Lord smile on you
and be gracious to you,
May the Lord show you his favor
and give you peace.
