Here I stand at the Crossroads...

...So much has happened in a very short amount of time. Life can change so quickly, suddenly without warning. I have not posted in a long time. I'm going to say that I took a sabbatical but, the truth of the matter is I have been very busy. Too busy to let the words form and flow from my heart to heal the hurts and soothe my rumpled thoughts. In a quick recap since my last post: Sarah and I were in a car wreck, from which she had a broken collarbone.

 I started leading a Fitness encouragement group, Fit to Farm, via facebook. I actually went on my first date in almost two years, but it didn't work out. I discovered that you can choose to love anybody but there is nothing that can compare to that soul connection, even if you have a lot in common you can't make that spark happen. I spent about a week of intense sewing creating my brother John's wife Kasie's Wedding Dress! Now I am taking a brief break before jumping into the work of the coming season.
For the month of April I am trying to focus on honing in on God's will for my life. As you may have noticed, I changed the title of the blog. This is because I no longer have goats, or cows for that matter. I want to be able to use my passion for farming to impact people, young farmers, the Bolivians, children and adults alike. I want to learn how to farm better. I feel a great burden that is lightened by the peace in my heart. It is as though God is uprooting me and shaking off the dirt, preparing me for what is coming next and sending so many confirmations in my life. Please keep me in your prayers as I research agriculture schools and prepare for this next step in my life. 


  1. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know the restlessness you are feeling very well! :) We support a mission from Dublin that helps farming villages in East Africa. It is called Fields of Life. They do a great work and I know that you could as well if that is what is in your heart to do. God Bless you!
