Hello sweet ladies..........
I have missed journaling. Work will be real busy with caterings and such for the next two and a half weeks......did you hear that? I can hardly believe the winter work is almost over and farming will be a part of our lives once again.......everyday at HOME for almost 3 months. EEECCCKKKKK!!! The heart of our life is being able to work our land and help feed a "little bit" of the world. We love every bit of it! Even the hard part of farming is good for us. We have always said it is a "job" of faith......you never know what tomorrow will bring on a farm.....but we have always know there is One we can trust......and Him alone....has walked us through the hardest of times. Jesus has walked with us step by step and always been the One that has been faithful! Anyway to celebrate these last few weeks....it is time for a fun party!
Remember when I told you all about the wonderful gift I received awhile back in the mail? A candle and a bar of soap......from one of the "sweetest" families. I say one, because you are all one of my sweetest families also!!!!!!!! When I received the gifts, I just knew I had to tell all you sweeties about their products. The candle smells soooooo wonderful and they last for 60 to 80 hours. The $15.00 for a 14 oz......is well worth it. The soap smells wonderful also! This is a cottage industry for their family and the whole family is involved, working together on their family farm! Sweetness!
Soooo.....without further ado.........let me introduce you to my friends........
Love love love this header!!!!!!!
Regan Family Farm....we met March 3, 2010........Kathy wrote me when she found me off the Gooseberry Patch blog when they did a Featured Friday story about Prairie Flower Farm. Thank you Gooseberry Patch!!!!!!! She wrote me to introduce herself and we have been sweet friends ever since. I love this lady....she has blessed my life! They are a family of 11 (one little one in heaven). She has home schooled all of her children.......and still doing so. Love that part about her also! They also love the Lord with all their heart, soul and mind........such an encouragement to many!
Regan Family Home
Can't you imagine sitting on this beautiful porch in the spring thyme.....sipping fresh squeezed pink lemon-aid from a mason jar....... filled to the brim with chipped ice? Maybe they would have us "all" over sometime......heehee! One day I am coming! Kathy and fam get ready!!!!!!!
There family is full of energy and lots of fun!!!!!! When I went to her blog for the first time after she wrote me....... it kept me in stitches........I loved her writings. I was blessed.......a new sweet friend! They haven't blogged for some time, but you can read some of her posts from the past Here.
They raise Alpine and LaManchan goats. Their goats are milked twice a day, morning and evening. Everyone in the family has responsibilities to keep the farm going. That is one thing I absolutely love about farming. Even the littlest one that is 4 knows how to milk the goats. I want her to teach me! If you follow them on their facebook, you will see that life on the farm is not always pretty as on any farm. Three days ago one of their Momma goats had babies........they were dead when they were born. All the children were there to witness life...... from beginning to end! Yesterday the Momma goat died. Very sad for their family......they would appreciate prayer I am sure.
Party starts today and ends on Tuesday April 30th at midnight central time. I will let you all know who wins on
Wednesday May 1!

For those of you who would like to order from the Regan Family Farm you can go Here.
Their shipping amounts are very reasonable, I think.
Hi Linda, well, I did #1, 2, 3, and here is #4 - Yes, it would be a delight to read a book written by you. All of the above things that you mentioned would only add more joy to the book. Little scriptures at the beginning of each chapter would be nice also. Just my opinion.ReplyDelete
Hello Susannah.......oh scripture will be throughout! Thanks for the encouragement. He is my all and all! Hugs and God bless, meReplyDelete
I am going to go visit all these ! What a great giveaway! A generous family indeed!ReplyDelete
We have beautiful weather today. We already had a forty five minute walk around the water near our home where so many birds hang out! Breakfast at a sweet mom and pop place that we adore! Watching some track and field on T.V. since we can not be with Nick! :-(
Nick needs lots of prayer. Deciding about school next year. We would love that he would stay at Cowley. Pray he can shave a full minute off his time next weekend so we will be able to see him at Nationals in Kansas!
I have been reading the Cedar Cove series by Debbie Macomber and am tickled they will make it into a mini series on the Hallmark Channel! The faith and stories these families share is amazing. There is even a cookbook! Your book could incorporate so many good ideas and we all know Scripture is at the top of that list!
Content to visit my sweet friend today! Hugs! Anne
I have gone and done all of the votes. I would love to read a book written by you with all of the above mentioned items. There are alot of us regular folks who read your posts and learn to use the advise you give in our every day lives. The life you live is an inspiration for me to achive more in my life.
I would also love to see you write a book. I think you should just do a compilation of things like you post. A little bit about your daily life, family, and recipes.ReplyDelete
Vote #1 -- I just visited Regan Family Farm and signed up for their emails. One of my friends and one of my daughters just love handmade soaps. These would make nice gifts sometime.
What a generous giveaway they are doing for the party!
Vote #2 -- I checked out the scents for both candles and soaps and commented on my favorites. It was really hard to choose on the candles!ReplyDelete
Vote #3 (actually #4 on your list, but I'll only be doing 3) -- oh, Linda, a book by you on any subject would be fantastic. All of the ones you mentioned would be great. I have a special fondness for stitching and cooking. Maybe you could do a book just about your farm life in general, and include recipes and stitchery patterns sprinkled throughout!ReplyDelete

I think a book would be awesome. You could make it a "farm life" book and include chapters on all the subjects you mentioned. I would buy it. Hope you have a great weekend.

Thank you for another party. I would enjoy a book written by you on gardening, canning, stitching, quilting, and crocheting. I am interested in these things.
I found the Regan Family website and told them that I would enjoy the Ginger-tea soap and the Cinnamon Roll candle. I limed them on Facebook, too.
Thank you again for this party and sharing some very nice things.
I signed up for the email subscription for the Regan Farm.ReplyDelete

Farmhouse Cinnamon Roll. And for the soap---Vetyver.
I "liked" the Regan Family on FB.ReplyDelete
If you should write a book I would like to read about everything on your farm and also about the kids that you minister to at the college. That is so special. Thank you for the giveaway.ReplyDelete
Ok...mission accomplished on the tasks...now onto your book...I would LOVE to read about all those handcrafts and more, I truly enjoy your blog and your personal inflections.....ReplyDelete
Hi Linda, I love the Regan Family Farm website. Did everything you asked. Regarding a book - love reading everything you write.ReplyDelete
It's fun to meet someone new. I've done vote 1, 2 and now am completing number 4, so that's 3 votes (I'm not on facebook). It would be so much fun to read a book by you. I would love it to include a little about many areas of your life, both your stories and passing on some tips/skills to us. Like how you decorate, how you make things homey and welcoming to others, how God is such a part of your life, a project or two for handstitching, etc. Thanks for another fun party.ReplyDelete
Thank you for introducing us to the Regan family. I have gladly signed up for the email subscription.ReplyDelete
I left a note about which candle scent I would like but there are so many good ones, how could I choose just one but Lemon Chiffon sounds dreamy.ReplyDelete
Have gladly 'liked' the Regan Family facebook page. Thanks for introducing them.ReplyDelete
I would read any book you wrote Linda but I'm partial to the cooking, recipes, canning parts of your blog.ReplyDelete
I love your beautiful blog good job Thanks lot for this useful articleReplyDelete
I did all 4 of them...I just found your blog recently through a Gooseberry patch link, but I am already in love and honestly would love a book about all of the above...email@example.comReplyDelete
