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!

Vote for Our Homestead Business Name

One of our goals long term goals is to "bring Papa home" so we can make a living from our farm. This plan is very complex and involves many things. We want to produce our food, live debt free and operate business, and minister in the midst of it all (which is the primary call). We hope to have an online/local store on the farm which sells homestead supplies of all kinds and is much like a simple old fashioned general store. We hope to sell things produced on our own farm as well marketing things from other homesteads and craftsman. We are likely to have bulk foods and produce locally as well. There is a small Amish community here which we hope to serve and a little bit of tourism in the summer time, so we also hope reach that market as well.

We have purchased two web addresses but can't decide which we prefer. This is where you come in. We wanted to poll folks to see which name they prefer. You are welcome to further comment below as well. The poll will only accept one vote per person.

**We had "technical difficulty" with the widget code we were trying to use for the poll in the post, and had to use different one over in the top side bar of the blog. Please cast your vote there. If you have any comments - you'll have to post them here. Thanks for helping us decide!

This is very similar to the dreams I have had for a family business. But with Hubby's army carrer it's nearly impossible. Now we are seeing the end of that phase ending in the next few years. Exciting times. I will definately be praying for y'all.

What a wonderful vision you have! I hope the Lord will bless it!

How I long for my husband to be able to come home! But that is a long way off and I'm content with the 50% reduction in hours from what he was working a little over a year ago!
