Walk The Agrarian Path With Us

Old Paths

   We knew something was wrong from the way we were raised and were sure that we wanted to do things differently with our children. We loved them and wanted to spend time with them and be a family. And we wanted our home to be a HOME. It was a process, this learning how to be different, and it still is.
   "And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in." Isaiah 58:12. This is what we wanted to do. Repair the breach and restore the paths to dwell in.
  A friend and I used to say "The buck stops here." We were where the broken family places that we came from were going to stop.
   So against all odds, and through lots of trials, off we went on the journey.....


  1. Hello!
    Thank you so much for commenting on my blog :)
    Great post...In many ways, my parents have a similar story to yours-- they desired to build a home based on the 'old paths'. It's certainly a blessing to strive to live a christian agrarian life. I daily see the benefits of simple living..


    1. Mia, you are very blessed! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I'm looking forward to reading your blog. I see we like all the same blogs. We just put in an offer on a house with almost four acres and if things work out I hope to get back to blogging about the process of building a homestead and building a family following the "old paths".

    1. Cyndi, can't wait to read about all of your adventures on your land! And, all of the blessings that your family will reap from working it.
