Faith Family and Feathers

Fun on the farm with faith and family

A special father

My husband of 20 years and the father to all 4 of my children has been with me through thick and thin.  We’ve weathered the storms and came out better people and better parents because of it.  He’s responsible, dependable, faithful, interesting, a great businessman and provider.  I’m so lucky to have him.  This is not to say that we have not had our problems  and our share of fights.  He’s the oldest of his siblings and I’m the oldest of mine so that means we each think we are in charge and should have the final say.  We’ve been at logger heads many times and even been close to calling it quits.  I’m so glad we went through what we did.  Not that it was fun by any means, but it has made us the people, the  couple, and the parents we are today.  If your in the thick of things now with your man I suggest you pray for wisdom, strength, and endurance.  The Bible doesn’t promise us a trouble free life as a Christian,  it is quite the opposite.  Jesus said in this life we WILL have trouble, but that he will be with us.  Take time to honor a special father in your life this fathers day.  Don’t forget our Father in Heaven who is responsible for putting the stars in the sky and the fish in the sea and everything inbetween.  He planned for you before you were born and has an absolute purpose for your life.  Embrace it!  You are the only you he made and you are special.

Hi everyone. My name is Brenda. I am 41 and live in South Dakota with my 4 children (19, 17, 12 boys & 6 finally a girl!) and my husband. We have been married for 20 years and lived in the country for the last 16 years. My husband owns a road contrating business and I quit my job as an accountant 10 years ago to manage the bookkeeping side of his business and to spend more time with my family. We raise chickens and turkeys and just added ducks, bunnies and nubian milk goats (I love them!) the kids, the bunnies will be in (or near) their baskets on Easter morning.) I like about anything that makes us more self sufficient. I beliving in making as much of my families food from scratch as possible to control what goes into it. I try to reuse things as much a possible to reduce waste. With my last child I discovered the ease of cloth diapers and fell in love. I made all of her diapers and now give cloth diapers to all my friends having babies. I like crafting in general. Sewing, crochet, needle point, and recently I learned the art of soap making (love it). My husband and I both enjoy home improvement and remodeling. HGTV is my favorite TV station. I keep a nice size garden and like to freeze and can good things to enjoy all winter long. This year I'm planting sugar beets and will try to make my own sugar (without all the chemicles). My husband is a hunter so we enjoy making jerkey from the venison he gets. I'm active in our community by helping in the school and leading Bible study at church. I just love people and love to talk. I hope you enjoy this site and find many great tidbits related to faith, family or feathers. God Bless, Brenda
