Welcome to Home-steeped Hope.
I’m Mary, admittedly old-fashioned thanks to my love of the Lord, my family and a life of simplicity. And quilts. And enamelware. And classic novels by roaring fireplaces. :O)
I’m thirty-one, married to my cowboy, homeschooling sahm, raising three daughters, several horses, a few goats, border collies and one bucket calf here on our twelve acres in the beautifully agricultural mid-west. That colt in my blog header is one out of my paint mare Topaz. Wish I could have shown more, but WordPress makes you crop half the good stuff for these headers…and I’m not computer savvy enough to know how to get around it! :O)
My blog entries reflect my interests. Christianity-culture clashes, Family traditions and crafts, Marriage, Parenting, Homeschooling, Cooking (only recipes I share are family favorites-tried and true), Canning, Reading and Writing. A potpourri of items, I know. :O)
Be sure to check out my sidebar, and the live blog feeds I feature:
MInTheGap is a good friend, and a great one for blogging Christian takes on the latest in this culture we live in. His lively posts are often where I start my morning coffee blog-hopping!
Writer…Interrupted is another great site belonging to fellow writer friend, Gina. This webring is continually growing and a very encouraging place to meet God and explore the writing craft. I contribute at Writer…Interrupted on the last Thursdays of the month, and at MInTheGap whenever possible.
Did I mention that I love hot drinks? And good friends? Nothing like both for some good ole home-steeped hope!
Rejoicing in hope…Romans 12:12
