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!

Betrothal - Life with the Warrens
It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Warren Family. We had the pleasure of meeting this family a couple years ago at Family Week in KY. When I was corresponding with Nancy (Momma Warren), I thought I would put this post in the "hopper" to do "down the line". But as the day unfolded...I found I could not wait to share them with you any longer! :-) They are from Oklahoma and have 4 older children (all pitcured above - with the newest addition to the family!). Even though our personal time with them was brief, it was sweet. This family's light shines bright for Yah. They love Him and live their lives - as sold out servants for Him. I am looking forward and am hopeful that we will get to know them better in the coming years, as they are an inspiration and encouragement to our family. They have raised their children to follow in His ways and their first son has just gotten betrothed this past fall! They have given me permission to share their story with you. If you want to be encouraged and just a peek into another family's life who is "walking" in Yah's Torah as best as they know how, in love and full acceptance Messiah...you might want to "follow" their blog...I do! :-) If you would like to meet them in person - you may be able to find them at Family Week (sponsored by HaYovel) or serving in the vineyards of Israel with HaYovel, or maybe you will see them in OK or in their big 'ol bus passing through your town as they minister (through life) where ever Yah sends them!
Here are Berret and Devin's Betrothal Links:
Bride in the Vineyard! (Or as Heather would say, "the vineyard snatchin'"!) If you are a 'Romantic' you must start the story here and you might want to get the tissues because..your gonna need them! (I did!)
Both Families prepare on the morning of the betrothal.
Pictures of the betrothal! So beautiful!
The young couple's pictures in Jerusalem. No one catches 'New Love' like Heather Meyers!
Agina, be sure to go back and visit their family blog...Life with the Warren Family, as the wedding is coming soon!
I am so blessed by witnessing (and sharing) these people and events with you! Having "come out" of the world and it's belief systems and it's casual approach (and warped views) of the holy covenant of marriage, these examples help us see there is so much more!!! I am soo very encouraged and hopeful for the next generation of young people who are raised in the Scriptures and who are strong enough IN HIM, to live set apart lives right from the start! How blessed they will be - NOT to have to sort through all the pain and damage that comes with the world's ways! Oh...These young people are still human and will have plenty to contend with in life..but they are "light years" ahead of us whom had who had to purge those things in which we adopted/subscribed/lived out...when Young People give their hearts and lives to Yah early on and choose to live for Him - they are a powerful force to reckoned with in the Kingdom of Heaven!!!! I rejoice with dance and singing for the banner of love that Yah has placed over them! May they always stay under it's glorious protection and provision!! May we be encouraged to press into the things that Yah has called us all to do! May we, as mothers and fathers, NEVER FORGET...we are raising Israel!! (YHVH's children)
