At an early age, I knew in my heart that I was meant to live in a rural setting.
When I was young, I felt very comfortable with wide open spaces, the earthy smells of trees in the woods, that down home feeling of a barn and playful interaction with animals.
In my personal experience, I have cared for a wide range of furry and feathered friends; from fish, birds, hamsters & gerbils; to cats, dogs and a 14 hand Morgan horse.
I brought home a baby chick once and he ended up helping me re-enact my dream…in turning our tiny inner city backyard into my own little mini-farm. I had cornstalks growing up all over and I felt like a real farm girl! Our back porch transformed into a stall for my handsome rooster named “Yacky” and the seed was sown. I HAD to have a place where I could be who I was at my core, love what I do and encourage others to do the same!
It’s important, especially in these times we are living, to be able to have that solace, that place that lights you up.
What is it for you?
For me it was country living, surrounding myself with beings that help me be me; furry, feathered, “wet pets”…didn’t matter. I loved them all.
But for you? What are you passionate about?
What makes your eyes light up?
When are you…YOU?
Where does it feel like “home”?
Having a tough time identifying your passion?
Ask God to help you find your passion and purpose.
He’s always there ready to guide and direct your path,
