Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Chazaq Yisrael

This is our new favorite picture. This is my 3 month old son, 2 Shabbats ago. We were in a park in KY having Midrash with the Torah Portion with a group of (awsome) folks as we were camping. He was nursing and grabbed hold of my Tzit Tzit. (This has now become a regular thing.) But it gets better: His name is Chazaq Yisrael, which is Hebrew and translates "Be Strong" Israel.

Shabbat Shalom.

Precious!! I'm sure you already know, names are prophetic...we usually fullfill what the meaning of our names are...mine is Penny/weaver, I'm very crafty with my hands...the name I want to be called by is YahKheen Established by Yahweh, I want to be established in his ways by him...I love his name...I love the pic...very prophetic indeed!

I <3 the picture and how he has a hold of the Tzit Tzit. May he never let go of the word of the Lord.

What a great photo! I love it! My little guy does that too when he nurses. It made me think of how he needs to hold so tightly onto Yah and the Scriptures as he grows.
