You should know something. I’m a failure.

Sure, I’m a newbie homesteader. Seasoned homeschooler. Writer. And wife to my high school sweetheart.

But at pretty much everything, I’m a failure. By God’s grace, I seem to learn a lot while I’m failing, so I write about it here.

I have some great resources for you. For free.

I’d be honored if you’d like to follow along. Just type your email address in the box below to subscribe. Then you’ll have access to all the awesome resources in my Resource Library.

In my Resource Library you’ll find printables about melt-in-your-mouth, back-to-basics, old family recipes; homeschool and parenting related ebooklets; DIY instructionals; and DIY maple syrup resources. In fact, I add to the list of resources often–even I’m not sure what great resource may be here next week!

But, by far, the most popular item in my long list of resources, is my 33-page, 6-chapter, full-color eBook, A Sweet Taste.

Because simple joys require hard work.

So thanks for stopping by.

Whether you catch up on gardening tips, enjoy some making-your-own-maple-syrup how-tos, or glean a few insights into the joys and difficulties of caring for farm animals, … whether you enjoy musings about a two-centuries-old farmhouse, or obtain a little parenting or homeschool insight from this momma who’s been failing at the effort for almost 2 decades… my goal is to keep things simple and encourage you. Because simple joys require hard work; we need all the encouragement we can get.

Oh, and please feel free to look around, while you’re here. Glance at my posts about all I’m learning as a homesteader, as an owner of a 2-century-old farmhouse, as a maple syrup maker, and homeschool mom. Or check out some of my posts that have yummy home-baked recipes.
