About Tree Huggin Is Hard

I’m known by many names: Mom, Honey, Preacher’s Wife, and Teacher. But my favorite one is FORGIVEN!

My DH and I have been married since 1996 and have 5 beautiful children. DH pastors a small church in town, and works in the “Cheesiest” place on earth. I tease him about making money cutting the cheese…I know it’s corny but if you ever meet my Daddy, you’ll see where I get it from!

We bought 30 acres and are trying to become self-sufficient. I have always lived in town and gotten EVERYTHING from the store and one day I realized that if there were ever a disaster (natural or otherwise) my family would not survive. I want to teach my children something that they can pass on to future generations that may one day make a difference between starving to death or living.

I home school our children, try to take care of the animals, clean the house, be a good wife and pastor’s wife, and learn how to garden (which I have never done) and look into alternative energy (wind and solar). Some days are more trying than others, and if I use words like ya’ll and gonna or spell something completely wrong, just smile and remember I’ve got 4 girls, 2 boys, 5 horses, 8 hens, 1 rooster and a cat that expect to be fed every day…some of them more than once!

There is never a dull moment around here and I hope you enjoy the posts!
