Okay…so I’m not a homesteader – YET!! Someday I dream of having a small plot of land where we can have room for a large garden where we can grow our own fruits, vegetables and herbs so I can make my own sauces, food, and herbal recipes. Do you know how crazy that sounds to me? Five years ago if you would have told me those words would come out of my mouth, I would have laughed you into oblivion. Seriously.

But, it is now a dream I hold onto and can’t wait to see come to fruition. I have also been in a lull when it comes to devotionals lately, so I was excited to review The Homesteading Wife’s Christian Devotional by Susie Shock from Our Simple Farm.
As I read through her book, I felt as if we were kindred spirits. Even though I’m not a homesteader, I could completely relate to her stories and struggles.
I love how she ties everything together with her faith and God’s promises for our lives. Each devotion is challenging yet encouraging at the same time. It’s comforting to know you’re not alone in these thoughts and struggles in your life and faith.
Each devotion is closed out with a prayer that connects the devotion with you on a more personal level and draws our attention to God and ultimately what He has in store for us is better than what we have planned for ourselves.
Another fun twist in this journal are the recipes. She includes recipes with almost every chapter that pair perfectly with the devotional thought from the day. I love this aspect, because I think it only drives home the point being made and adds another depth to my memory bank.
If you’re a homesteader or hope to be someday, this is a great devotional that will encourage you during those lonely, crazy, hectic and dirty days on the homestead. You can read more about her life and purchase the book directly from her site or grab it in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle – along with 83 other products – for just $29.97!!! But hurry…it ends Monday, April 28th at midnight!!!
