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!

    Angeligue and I have known each other since my second born was a baby (about 9 years), we have walked through quite a bit together. We are very different and drive each other crazy at times, just like sisters do! I consider her husband a brother and her children like my niece and nephew. At the end of the day, we lay down our differences and are there for one another the best we know how to be. So often people choose friends that think and believe just as they do, and if they find out that isn't the case, they try to make them see "their errors" and "cut them loose" if they don't conform. But a true friend is one who is there even after you find out...they don't think and do things just like you do and you love each other anyway! A true friend is faithful and trustworthy and one who learns to love you where you are.
