The Farm

Our dear friends Brian and Jenna have been farming for the past few years on other peoples property while living in the city. (which is very challenging to say the least, as you can imagine) We have been praying with them for an opportunity to live and farm in the same place. God has them on an incredible journey. Recently they were offered a house to live in on 35 acres that they can farm however they see fit, all free. It is an answer to prayer and God's provision. Lately Rich and I have been spending lots of time praying together and God has, in amazing ways, been showing us that we are a part of this farm. We have commited to our friends that we are going to help them get the farm going.


So the other night we went out to the land for our first visit with Amy, her mom Wendy, and all the girls. They were so excited and took off thru the super tall grass to explore around the barn. Within seconds, they were swallowed up and we couldn't even see them!


Here is the barn. I am so excited about all the animals that will live here. I am looking forward to farm fresh eggs! Lily and Rosie are dreaming about bunnies and Rich wants a goat. We should probably talk to Brian and Jenna about their plans!


Look at that farm girl! Lily is so beautiful. I know I am her mom, but she is the most photogenic kid I know.


Don't we look like a couple of farmers!!! The new American Gothic!
