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!

Tea Bag Dryer

My (almost 9yr old) son surprised me with a prototype of my upcoming Mother's Day gift. I am a blooming herbalist, making my own teas, tincture and salves for our family's health and medicinal needs. I am really big into the teas. I have made my own reusable tea bags out of muslin because I found they work better than the metal tea balls. This has resulted in me "drying tea bags" above the kitchen sink constantly, since the whole family drinks tea regularly. I was using the tops of wine bottles, but it was really unsightly, impractical and took up a lot of space. So my son (being the industrious little creative engineer he is!) made a very cute solution for me for Mother's Day! We hung some wet bags up on it and it works great! He says it's just a prototype, that he wants to make another one which is more sturdy because it will get so much use. Don't you love the details? The green grass, and laundry basket with muslin in it! I just LOVE IT!
