Welcome to Home-steeped Hope.
I’m Mary, and this is a lifestyle blog based on my love of my Savior, my family, the country life He’s given us and my desire to encourage you.
I’m forty-three, 25 years married to my hard-workin’ cowboy, homeschooling mom of three musical daughters (with two graduated), several horses, a few goats, our faithful stockdogs, chickens, and Jersey and Guernsey dairy cows here on our few acres in the beautifully agricultural mid-west.
I haven’t been here in a while. You will notice about a 3 year silence between 2016 and 2019. I apologize for not being able to reply to comments and keep in touch as much as I wanted. The gap years have been a whirlwind of homeschooling our high schoolers while simultaneously launching their musical career, and caring for my aging parents as they’ve faced many debilitating health challenges. We’ve started a local homeschool co-op and well, so much more! Bear with me as I learn how to blog again, better this time we hope!
One thing you’ll notice is that my eating habits have definitely cleaned up! After losing 40 lbs and keeping it off for two years, I am loving life without sugar. My passions these days center around food for health–REAL foods like raw milk, the Trim Healthy Mama diet, homeschooling, and raising happy productive children, chickens and milk cows. ; )
Did I mention that I love hot tea? Year round! And time with good friends? Nothing like both for some good ole home-steeped hope!
Rejoicing in hope…Romans 12:12
