We wrote the following series of articles as a result of conversations that were happening on The Messianic Keepers at Home Forum, in one of our groups "Exploring Our Hebrew Roots". I asked Ben if we could gather the information we had learned to share it with the ladies and well...it turned into a very comprehensive series of all the things we have learned to date surrounding the topic of Chanukah. (It is so hard to "leave things out" when it all connects to the big picture!)
We have been studying this topic for 4 years and it can get very sticky when it comes time to make a conclusion on it. YHVH is bringing so many families to His Torah so fast in these end days...there are so many topics to weed through and learn about and make decisions on. Especially if you are seeking the TRUTH and you have oneness and worshiping YHVH as your center and sole objective! Few things can be ignored! We finally came to the place where we could share all He has shown us in the past few years. It is long and involved, so we have broken a very long essay into parts, hoping that it would be easier for people to "process". We wish we could have released this sooner than we did...but we were really spending time on it to try to make it clear and being prayerful about it all as we wrote it. We expect it will challenge you, but hope above all, that it will bless you!
We suggest reading the articles in order and want to encourage you NOT to draw any conclusions until you have read it to completion.

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!
