A Lil’ About Me

 

Our new homestead in Tehachapi, CA

 My husband and I are on the wonderful adventure of trying to find out how to live to the best of our potential. After years of dreaming and planning, we’ve purchased our homestead in December of 2009. We’re only beginning to understand what it means to be caretakers of these 1.5 acres, but we hope that we are doing it faithfully and well. We continue to do our best to tend to our little orchard, a (small) vegetable garden, and some grape vines. One of our most exciting endeavors is that we have become hobby beekeepers, and run a tiny honey business in town. Our apiary is expanding this year to 4 hives! We are the proud parents Elijah, two crazy dogs, two kitties, seven chickens; we are proud supporters of local farms; and we are proud spouses of one another.

My current endeavors (some more successful than others) include taking theological courses, learning Biblical Greek, writing books and articles, public speaking, sewing, quilting, baking, gardening, and learning the guitar and fiddle. I’m sure I forgot something somewhere, because I’m always trying my best to expand my own self-perceived limits!

Check back often and follow us on the adventure of our lives…together, we continue to seek (and find) the sacred.

    Yes, we just moved here about 2 weeks ago! It’s amazingly beautiful. We feel very, very blessed and hope to make our home a place of community and fellowship.

    Hello Stacia,

    Following some clues regarding an old high school friend led me to your blog. I am impressed by the adventure that your family has embarked on and quite eager to learn more. My company has some environmental impacts work that I may be involved with down in that area and understand from the stories that it is a beautiful part of California. Anyway, best of luck with your homestead lifestyle and ask your husband (I am almost certain I have the right person) to respond to a Jeep driving high school buddy. I would love to become reacquainted as it appears we still have many things in common.
