I am so excited to announce the launch of a new eBook by Susie Shock, The Homesteading Wife's Christian Devotional! Whether you are a homesteader, or dream of becoming one, this book will help lay a foundation of biblical truths that just might help prepare your hearts and minds to what lies ahead. Homesteading can become quite a challenge, in fact, it is a challenge, period! So how can we focus on His Word in the midst of this amazing adventure?
Watch the short, comical video below and get a glimpse of what this eBook is about.
Can you relate to the frustration?
Homesteading is not for the faint of heart, nor is it easy. What some think of as a dreamy way of life, is actually a hard life in reality. The rewards far outweigh the hardships, but sometimes we, ladies, can struggle with many negative thoughts and actions on the farm.
We have different struggles than most wives and mothers. The best of people could never fully understand what we go through physically and emotionally, unless they jump on board this sometimes crazy boat!
Listening to others' struggles made me realize how hard it is to relate to the 'normal' people at times. Homesteading is a huge challenge, and if we aren't careful, we could fall into a bad trap that could ruin our adventure.
I am a work in progress. Here on the farm, I have learned so many valuable lessons. Lessons that God orchestrated for me. I'm sure I missed the opportunity to learn all of what He has rolled out for me, but I have found some biblical truths on the farm that I can't help but share to other women who have the same struggles.
For the complete introduction go here.
A few of the struggles addressed in The Homesteading Wife's Christian Devotional are:
Forgetting our husbands
Forgetting our children
Unworthiness Being Overwhelmed
At the end of each chapter, Susie shares a heartfelt prayer that relates to the biblical truth shared. She also shares some of her favorite recipes and remedies after each chapter as well. The prayer below comes from the chapter on humor.
Examples of a few recipes and remedies shared are:
Grandma's Chicken and Dumplins'
Dandelion and Violet Tea
Farm Apple Pie
To join in on some great fellowship with other homesteading women, Susie has created a facebook group called HWCD. There you can share any trials, triumphs, prayer request, homesteading questions or experiences, etc.to others who more than likely will understand what you are going through. Go HERE to join!
As a celebration of this launch, we have a few wonderful gifts that you can enter to win!
