TODAY is exactly five years to the day that we moved into our little hobby farm here in the country. What a journey it has been. Today, my husband Steve is joining me as we discuss some of the lessons we have learned since trying to achieve a simple life.
“I am grateful for a Spirit-filled woman like Karen who I could discuss homeschooling and life within this new adventure of hers. I have been homeschooling for seven years and felt like I needed some outside perspective for my life and homeschool. I chose Karen because I love her focus on living for Jesus and I desire that for my life. I opted for a one-hour session with her via FaceTime. The hour flew by. The format worked well because Karen came to the hour-long session well-prepared after reviewing a questionnaire I had previously filled out. She listened to my concerns and questions and provided feedback. She prayed for me, encouraged me, challenged me, and gave me some things to think and pray about. Her insight and perspective were such a blessing to me. I highly recommend the consultation! If I ever feel the need to have outside perspective again, I would do another consultation again. It was a great investment for me and my family.”
Grab a cup of coffee today and sit with me a bit and chat about many things…what I am learning as I watch Spring bursting forth on the little hobby farm, what I am learning from traveling to speak this past weekend, and what God is fueling in me these days!

Easter is upon us, and rebirth is on my mind. Spring is such a beautiful time of year and everything about it points to our Savior. It is a time of rebirth and rejoicing! Spiritually, spring holds so many special qualities for me.
And then there are the practical things we must do to prepare for spring around here at Love’s Farm.
Steve and I plan on working this weekend to get the gardens ready for planting, get the animals comfortable again, and celebrate the newness of this magnificent time of year.
As we work to prepare the farm, I will also work to prepare my heart. There is so much there that often needs some deep cleaning as well. I am comparing it to the deep cleaning that is about to take place- it must be done so that life can burst forth!
If you have a little hobby farm like we do, or a yard and garden, here are some jobs that we are working on that may help you in planning your spring cleaning.
