Welcome to my wonderfully blessed and beautifully chaotic life! I ranch in Manitoba with my husband and son. We have a lot of fun, we work hard and we children of God who celebrate His creation every day!
This is my Mom blog, where I share about our adventures, the stories that move us and the poetry that life and the Lord bring me. Sometimes it is just photos, sometimes it is a story. Sometimes it is just stuff! My faith blog is Strawberry Roan and my healing journey is over at Scarred Seeker. You are welcome to stop by either and say hi!
We have four rescue dogs - Border Collie, Catahoula, Great Pyrenees and a Corgi mix. We have Highland cows and horses, cats and lots of wild critters who call our ranch home.
As a writer, photographer and scrapbooker I have a pretty creative mind, and it is so different from my work, which I love, that taps into my work in emergency services and animal care.
We are avid readers, lovers of books and some are authors too. We read Dr. Seuss, Cat In The Hat science books, we follow the adventures of the trucks in the Truck Town books by Jon Scieszka, any books about farming and heavy equipment, the 'talking' Britannica set of books on science, nature and the world are very popular around here! Poetry, Bible stories and singing songs keeps the sounds rolling. We homeschool and spending time reading aloud or to ourselves but together is really important and a lot of fun.
My son, Luke, loves Bible stories and his two favorites are the Easter Story and the Good Samaritan. He also loves to read about Martha and Mary.
It gets muddy, dirty, and kinda crazy around here but we love our ranching life and wouldn't change it for anything. It is a blessing to be stewards of this land, this water and these animals, both wild and not so wild.
Thank you for coming by, I hope you come again!
Bright blessings, always and in all ways...
