If you are a woman who lives on a working ranch in the Great American West, this blog is for you! I share stories, recipes, and Christian encouragement. I know the unique strain that ranch life brings… I know about the low wages and junky houses and interrupted plans. I want to help you live a more fulfilling, satisfying life — right where you are! Let me help you find solutions to your ranch problems.
I was not raised on a ranch. I have an eclectic background of country living, city streets, beach picnics, seasonal work, many moves, and quiet evenings with no TV. I was raised in a Mennonite home – trained to love my neighbor, work hard, keep house, honor God’s Word, love my husband and make a delicious pie.
I married a good ole’ country boy who was brave enough to pursue his dream and plunge into a new lifestyle. He works hard, and continually improves his skills in every area related to ranch work. 12 years ago, he started a side business which is growing – making custom saddles and other cowboy gear. He loves me despite my idiosyncrasies, laughs at my weird humor, and more often – has me laughing at his! He supports every venture I dabble in – including my writing, gardening, photography, and my undying obsession with baby chicks.
I have one driving passion in life – to bring honor and praise to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I am an imperfect, fallen human – redeemed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus. I don’t believe you can separate your everyday life from your spiritual one, so you will find my worldview sprinkled throughout my writings. I hope you can be inspired and encouraged here.
