Welcome to The Christian Homekeeper. I'm really glad you stopped by. I'm no Bible scholar or anything like that but I do love the Lord and I love His Word. My goal is to offer some words of encouragement and build up your desire to know Him better.
My husband and I were married in 1980 and began our journey together which has included several universities and homes and 5 wonderful children who I have been busy home educating since 1991.
I love to read. I'm working on a book list for my blog right now and hopefully I'll have it up soon. Reading is akin to breathing for me.
Music is a gift from God that I enjoy so much and I love to play it, sing it and listen to it. My flute and piano are constant companions.
With 5 children and a husband you can imagine that I like to cook. I do and I love new recipes and I love to teach old fashioned skills like dehydrating, canning, candle-making and more. I am also a huge proponent of being prepared for emergencies and eventualities both natural and man-made. You can find lots of my radio shows and pod casts on my site where I share information about how to get prepared.
Perhaps more than music, I love to write. And I love bringing new thoughts and ideas to my readers
I've been online since 1996 with first a web site and now a blog. I enjoy hearing from you in the comments and you can find me on Facebook and Twitter as well.

I’ve never been a person who minded change too much. Moving to new places, finding new hobbies, changing the furniture around and painting the walls a new color have never been a problem. Even looking for a new Church in … Continue reading
The sun is shining. Its not warm yet but its getting there. The birds are singing. I’ve gotten three loads of laundry done, breakfast smoothies and bacon made, Nana’s needs attended to and dishes done. Those breakfast smoothies were delicious. … Continue reading
Have you ever wondered if a ministry or just a group of Christians who claim to be led by the Holy Spirit really is a work of the Spirit? Ever get that little niggle at the back of your mind … Continue reading
A New Day.
I love those words. I am not a morning person but I do have to get up and get moving like everyone else. When I lie down at night I feel hopeful and thankful.
And when I … Continue reading
I say “Boston Baked Beans” with a bit of hesitation because they’re really not true Boston baked beans but they are in close proximity. I know how I say, “Pshhh…” when someone says a recipe is Southern Cornbread and its not. … Continue reading
These are the black raspberry plants that came up in our back yard a few years ago. Probably some passing bird left the seeds. They came up and we nurtured them along.
I picked about 4 cups last week and about … Continue reading
