Well, here it is January and although I promised updates they didn't really come.  Some of you know that I was really sick this fall and I'm glad to say that I am finally feeling somewhat better.  I am just now beginning to feel like I am settled and myself after our move and my surgery and long recovery.  I find it hard to believe that we have now been living in Utah for six months.  Time truly has flown.

I have been thinking a lot about my experiences on the farm and trying to make sense of the amazing things I learned.  I am planning to continue to update this blog with stories and lessons learned as I process them.  My goal is to eventually compile it all into a book so you'll want to stay tuned.

One of the hard things about my adjustment here has been that I find myself suddenly facing an entirely new life and mission than the one I was seeking in Oregon. Since in some ways it feels like this is so very different from what I have been doing on the farm, I have decided to start a new blog reflecting my changing life and "new" mission: being a mom.

I am envisioning it being like I am writing you letters.  Letters from my heart and home to yours.  Uplifting and encouraging notes, updates on our family, ideas that worked, some that didn't, pictures, love.

Join me in my new adventures as I am Called Home.

  1. Love your "Called Home" blog--it's awesome. Look fwd to enjoying the journey with you. I will be so looking fwd to sharing your life lessons learned in Oregon, too. Wouldn't it be so great if we could have a parallel life and fit in so many more adventures?!

  1. Velinda, You need to come visit us again sometime soon. I wasn't really myself last time you were here. I was preoccupied (had surgery three days later). Are you still out here frequently to visit your mother?

  1. And yes, the hardest thing for me is leaving all of that, all of Monticello, etc. behind. Being patient for the Lord's timing can be really unpleasant!
