  2. I just received your book yesterday in the post and so I will be reading through that, I've already started and so much of it resonates with me. It's so inspiring and helpful, it's my own little personal bible I just can't put it down. Thank you so much for writing it. You are really helping people like us who don't want to be bogged down by societies 'norm' and want to live a life of freedom and independence. I really feel that I can equip my young children with life skills that will help them throughout their entire lives, just through simple tasks in the home. I can't thank you enough :)

  3. Rhonda, you have had a busy time lately. I am of the same vintage and amazed that you took on that long trip by yourself. Good for you! I hope you and Hanno have a restful weekend together.

  5. Thanks Rhonda for these great links. I love to check out your recommendations each week and this week I particularly enjoyed the Popes message!

  6. Love what the Pope said...and it's SO TRUE! I have just started feeling very anti consumerism/anti materialism and am currently reading 'Happy are you Poor' which includes what the Pope says. The book describes the meaning of "Gospel Poverty" (which does not mean we seek to be destitute, dirty, or lazy). It means if we have two coats, then we can give one to someone who has none.....or....when we have much, others can only have little. It's a very challenging read and may be of interest to your Christian readers (or anyone :)

    Thank you for being such a huge encouragement to me personally! I am the mother of seven children (16yo-3yo) and am enjoying my wife/mother/domestic vocation more because of your blog. Just this last week I made yogurt for the first time (so exciting!!!). That, along with our home made granola is our children's favorite breakfast!
    Have a lovely weekend~
