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!

Simple Family Games

When your children don't have for TV for a couple years; when video games are foriegn to them; when they don't have lots of toys and they are homeschooled, a beautiful thing happens...their imagination and enginuity blossoms. There social skills and ability to relate to others increases because they live in organic relationship with all ages. When their friends live in similar settings and their families come to visit...such fun ensues! It is a multi age level party, with simblings/friends of all ages (because they don't know it's not "cool" to play with kids that aren't in thier "grade") and everyone has fun! In our circles, (Clean) Jokes and riddles are told, and songs are instraments are song, Messianic Dance circles open up and games of ALL sorts are played. I thought it would be fun to start sharing these sometimes corny, but always fun games that we have learned from each other and like to play (in a  handy index on my blog). They require little to no props and can be done most anywhere. They can accomidate nearly any number of people and are often funs twists on old classics.
