About Us

Hi, my name is Michelle. I am a saved-by-grace child of God, a stay at home wife and mom, homesteader, homeschooler and maker. I married my highschool sweetheart in 2008 when we were 19 and now have three wonderful boys: Noah, Isaac, and Peter.

We have about an acre that we are using for homesteading in central New Hampshire that we call Brown Croft Acre. Our homesteading has grown over the years, starting with cooking from scratch and sourcing organic, whole ingredients, to growing our own vegetables, to raising our own meat and dairy. We've tried a few things and decided they weren't for us (the sweet rabbits), and we've stuck with others and they have become a part of our daily life (cows! and chickens).

First came chickens

Then Cows...
and then rabbits... 

Our little family is striving to live a life that is pleasing to God. We aim to be responsible with everything that we have been provided with: our life, our gifts, and our money. For us this means living simply, a natural approach to food and cleaning, and offering our gifts when the needs present themselves. We were created to glorify God and enjoy Him forever and we are striving to worship God with our whole life.

Through this blog I will share my loves: Homesteading, Family Life, Homemaking, Homemade and Homegrown Food, Natural Living, Photos, Memories, and stories of the work God is doing in my family's life.

You might see Etsy things, Farmstand news, or small scale homesteading. I'm sure it will be changing all the time. But this will be a record of our journey and a place for me to share with my family and you the recipes, the life, and the sweet memories as we go through it all. I find help from so many other bloggers and I hope that some of our journey can be helpful to others as well.
