Thank you!Strawberry Happiness

I appreciate that you entrusted your email information to me. I promise to respect your privacy. I will never share your email with others, and I will only send you occasional newsletters to your inbox.

It’s true, I’m a failure.

If you’ve only spent a few minutes getting to know me, you already know I fail pretty often–every season–here on my New England homestead.

I fail at homesteading, homeschooling, and trying to live a more simple lifestyle. But I see each morning as a fresh slate, and I try to make a conscience effort to “stand firm and remember that my labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (I Corinthians 15) So I write about my failings, and what I learn from them, here. And I try to stay “Souly Rested,” because simple joys require hard work.

But I’m pretty good at encouraging too.

So, that being said, I send out weekly encouragement (and yummy, real-food recipes once in a while) to your inbox every Tuesday morning despite–or because of–my mishaps. That’s what you’ve just signed up for.

So, please, enjoy the resources.

As a subscriber, you have access to my free Resource Library; feel free to bookmark the page, so you can come back often. (I’ll be continually adding more resources.) You’ll need to use the personal password you’ll find if you scroll to the bottom of this page.

And pull up a chair when you have a sec.

Whenever you have a second, feel free to pull up a chair under an interesting topic, like homesteadinghomeschoolingnature study; my experiences in dealing with grief, living in a two-centuries-old farmhouse, or tapping, boiling, and bottling our own maple syrup. Whether you catch up on a homesteading tip or glean a little parenting insight from this momma who’s been failing at the effort for almost 2 decades, I hope that what I’ve learned from my mistakes can make your work a little easier every now and then. Because let’s face it, simple joys require hard work.

Remember, here’s the free Resource Library (it’s always changing), and your personal password is at the very bottom of this page (your password will never change, and the computer program will remind you of it on each weekly email I send you).

I hope you have a great day in your neck of the woods!
