Excellent article that dispels a common myth among those of us who submit to Biblical patriarchy…
To Correct or Not to Correct…. Your Husband
Humble, godly men welcome correction as a gift from God. They look to their help meets for counsel. This doesn’t mean they do what the wife wants all the time. But they see their wives as having insights and wisdom (yes, wisdom is personified as a woman in Proverbs!) that they can take advantage of and benefit from.
I enjoyed reading these excerpts very much. There was much to think about and I greatly appreciated how she acknowledged the Lord’s Providence and Provision in their lives…
1880’s Homesteader’s Diary
The cow and our pet yearling fared well on the tender buffalo grass. Such milk as our jersey poured down and after standing a while, great layers of rich yellow cream could be lifted from the pans in big rolls, stirred a short time with a spoon, it was converted into lovely butter. The yearling was so gentle the children could play with her as the would a pet dog. No matter how far she was from the house, if I had a pan of peelings, or some other treat, stepping outside the house I would call and she would lift here head and at sight of me would come racing to the house. Frank and Mabel learned to ride the horses and thought it great fun. Sometimes they were allowed to go to Stephenson on horseback a little post office perhaps a mile away. Frank took long rambles to the canyons; finding lovely wild floweres and berries. What he especially delighted in was the lovely stones of many kinds. He had many lovely agates which might have been of some value could they have been polished. These were happy days for the youngsters. They were too young to have any thought of anxiety and knew nothing of hardships; everything was pure fun for them.

Thank you, I found many helpful links!
Quinn, I clicked on the herb picture to go to homestead survival and I got a message that the site has been removed. Do you know if they are still around?

Went over to your Pinterest boards, and noticed you have a few of my pictures from my blog you pinned……cannot wait to take some more time and look through the wealth of information here.
xo + blessings,
I just read Born Again Dirt this fall. It is a great book, especially for anyone just starting out with their homestead! Noah Sanders blessed us by helping us put a lot of our farming plans into perspective. I feel like no matter how much I try to learn and think I’m getting ahead, there is still so much knowledge I will never catch up to!
Have a Happy Mother’s Day!
