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!

Are you an Israelite? You may be surprised...
If you follow the traditional annual Torah readings, this Shabbat marks the end of the Book of Genesis. The focus this week is the blessings from Jacob on his 12 (or 14) sons, on his death bed.
If you are new or newish to this Torah focused or "Hebrew roots" walk, this is an especially important, and potentially life altering week of study.
Rather than give this crucial teaching only a brief blog post, I wanted to offer a link to the most profound and in-depth teaching on current status of the 12 Tribes of Israel, specifically the place of Eprhaim. If you are wondering why this could possibly be relevant, then you REALLY have to give this entire teaching a close listen.
this link is part 1 of 3, with the other 2 parts easily accessible from the first 1.
If this sort of thing floats your boat, there is another 3 part teaching on each of the blessings on of the other tribes and what they imply, and how they came (or are coming) to pass.
It is worth your time to read it or listen to it (there are even power points too for all 6 talks).
