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!

Memorizing Scripture

Psalm 119 - We wanted to be sure that we are hiding YHVH's Word in our hearts.  One day we hope to memorize the Torah in Hebrew. However, we are still learning the Language and that will take some time.  So in the mean time, we have decided to memorize Scripture, by the chapter in key topics that we want to be sure to "hide in our heart".  Psalm 119 declares the love and passion fo Yah's Scriptures and His Ways.  Which is why we chose it.  It is also the longest Chapter in the Bible.  We figured if we could memorize it, we could memorize ANY chapter!  Psalm 119 in broken up into 21 sections.  Each section (in the Hebrew) is labeled/number by a Hebrew letter.  Each section/letter is 8 verses long.  We are learning and recording each section at a time, then adding it to the greater verse.  Since it is so much easier to memorize things to a tune, we have decided to put each section to a little tune that we make up at the time of memorization. (This is no easy task!  However, in prayer YHVH gives a "New Song" at the beginning of each section. It is fun to watch that part unfold!)   When we reach the completion of the psalm, we will record the whole thing in one sitting for you.  We are using the ESV (English Standard Version) with some Hebrew words for our memorization.  Each video will include the text  of the verse in timing with the song, in the hopes to inspire other families to hide the Word in their hearts as well!  If you decide to join us, please leave a comment below - we would LOVE to know that!!  If we can do it - so can YOU!
