I am Kay. I write about life on a working ranch, through the eyes of a mom. Ranch life is truly a different lifestyle – one that many people don’t understand. I have a passion to share this life with others — this life of cowboys, rawhide ropes, cute baby calves, cranky windmills and beautiful sunsets. I want to pull back the curtain a bit, so you can peek through and get a glimpse of the truly great people who live and work on ranches.
I was not raised on a ranch. I have an eclectic background of country living, huge gardens, 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 leave what he knew behind, and plunge into a new lifestyle. He works hard, and continually improves his skills in every area related to ranch work. 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, cooking, 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.
