I’m Jena. I’m a small town girl who moved to an even smaller town and married a farmer. I love my life and thank God for it every day. I know what it is like to be an overwhelmed, busy mama! My hope it to use what I’ve learned from other women in the trenches to bless you and help make your day just a tiny bit easier.
What started as a blog about the happenings here on our farm has now evolved in to a more personal account of things from my point of view as a farm(er’s) wife. My early posts focus on raising livestock, being green, and learning to cook for men with big appetites! I shared how we managed our money to become debt free (now including the mortgage!) and I updated as we hit new financial milestones.
Much of the blog is now devoted to raising our (6!) boys and all the fun we have with them. Our family was formed in part by adoption from foster care, and we are happy to answer questions about that. We homeschool, with an emphasis on reading great stories and using Montessori materials. We continue to raise animals and work together on the farm. Then, in our downtime, we enjoy riding horses and roping and cheering our boys on at rodeos.
There’s a lot going on here, but we wouldn’t have it any other way!
