Our Story – Overview

We are a family of three who are kind of “semi-pioneering” on 7 acres in the MidWest. We have been living on our land since September 30, 2006 and in the RV since December 1, 2005. It was not our original goal to be living on land in our RV. We would have much preferred an old farm house. However, the journey of life taken us through twists and turns and here we are!

Our land has a wooded hillside, two creeks and a meadow. The road runs down the side of a small valley. On our side of the road we have a narrow strip of wooded land next to the creek we drive across to get to another narrow strip of trees and a meadow. Right above the meadow we have our RV on a pad cut into the hillside. We are blessed with a beautiful view looking out over our meadow and the valley to the opposite hillside. There are trees everywhere!

“Home” is a little (24 1/2′) Motor Home (RV). Our common living space is 11′ x 7 1/2′. That space is filled with a couch, cupboards, refrigerator, sink, stove, etc. At one end is an over the cab bed. That area is our son’s mostly. We have a few things up there facing the common area. At the other end is a tiny bathroom.

Throughout the blog, I try to share the challenges, the struggles, the joys and the blessings of our lifestyle. I also share our hopes and dreams. You will find photos and descriptions of our little place, along with photos of the kind that might interest 12 year old (now 14 year old) lads…things like closeups of bugs! Ick!

These posts are filled with my thoughts and ramblings about our life here, spirituality and whatever else pops up. 🙂 I hope that you will enjoy reading them and maybe even find a common ground with us somewhere.

Please feel free to post comments and/or questions. I will get to them as soon as I can. We would love to hear from anyone who is reading along here.

    You are real!

    Got you confused with someone else who did not want to reveal her identity and I helped her change her name from Abigail to something else, which I can’t remember now. (early old age setting in. Senior moment, is what I hear them whisper behind my back.)

    I like this. Like the whole concept of what you’re doing.

    Gotta find out more about Yahweh’s House, too. Any thing Kabbalah about it?

      Yes…I am “real”. LOL (I’d ignore the whispers if I were you.) No, nothing Kabbalah about it. Our heavenly Abba is building a place for us to live. We have no resources. He is blessing us through His people. 🙂 We are VERY grateful…having spent 4 1/2 years in this little RV. I hope you find some interesting things in my blogs.

    The land that you are living on seems really beautiful. I am excited to read your blog further about the stories and situations you encounter living out of your RV. It seems like after 5 years in the RV you could almost write a book of everything.

      I guess I could write a book. It has been suggested. In a way, this blog is sort of a book, although the posts are rather eclectic. 🙂
