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!

What God has Joined Together - Give Away

I am delighted to give away another wonderful resource to encourage families in the concept and application of Betrothal. This is the story of Israel & Brook Wayne (of Wisdom's Gate Ministries) in the format of CD, called What God has Joined Together. It is a wonderful story shared by both the bride and the groom of how they came to the idea of betrothal and the details of how that unfolded for them in a fun "he said - she said" format. The end of the story brought lots of 'hoops and hollers' of excitement and joy from our family when we listened to it. I believe you will be as blessed by this testimony as much as we were.

But wait...theirs more.... :-)

Israel Wayne also offers a course on CD, called Preparing for Marriage that I am excited to include in this drawing. It is a teaching on the practical principals of betrothal, so that young people (and their parents!) may prepare themselves for a path of purity and relying on YHVH to lead them to their future husband/wife. Israel Wayne shares four and a half hours of practical, Biblically based advice and personal testimony on preparing for marriage. In this inspiring, convicting, and sometimes humorous series, Israel discusses dating, courtship, and betrothal and answers the question of; " What is the Biblical pattern for relationships, and how do we walk it out in the real world?" Here are the topic titles:

1. The Dating Culture
2. The Family Culture Courtship: Is It Biblical?
3. Betrothal: Is It Practical?
4. The Betrothal Stage
5. The Divine Romance: Christ and His Bride

I have 2 copies of each of these items that will go to 2 winners of the drawing (1 of each item to each winner). The winners of the drawing will be drawn/announced on Monday, Dec 26. In order to enter the contest, do one or more of the following:

Shalom Pamela,

I am a google follower and I also subscribe to your blog via email.

I would love to own this great resource. Our children range in age from 20 years old to 11 years old so it would be great to have this resource as a guide. There is so much that is misunderstood about courting, betrothal, etc and the differences as well as what Yah really expects from young people in regards to this subject. We first became interested in this subject when we stumbled across a video from Brayden and Tally's wedding. What a joy and blessing it was to see this video. It moved my husband and I to tears and what we want to see for all our children. Have a blessed week!
