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!

Herbs in The Bible

Have you ever researched Herbs in the Bible? I was delighted to find that there are a number of resources out there from other people who have done this and written about it! So I thought it would be fun to make a list and add a few for my own (already extensive) library as the budget permits. So many herbal resources are from folks who give credit to the Creation instead of the Creator. I am looking forward to finding more resources who see the whole picture.

It wasn't long ago, when people only aquainted hippies, witches and other religions with herbs. It saddens me that we (The people of the Bible) turn so quickly to the wisdom of man (the western medical profession) FIRST instead of the wisdom of the Creator in the things He has proivided for us and how to use them. However, it is very exciting to see YHVH's (God's) people learning about His amazing Creation and how to use it to treat illness and keep them healthy. It certainly is easier just to buy what the docter tells us too, but many people in The Body of Messiah are making a different choices and re-learning the Ancient Ways.

GREAT POST~Love it!!
YHVH is soooooo Great!!! HE has provided us with everything we need to LIVE, but of course the enemy tries to keep it hidden, distorted or corrupted. It is definitely time to give the glory honor and majesty back to the CREATOR OF ALL THINGS!

I love the books, our family doesn't have the budget for them so, I will see what I can find for free on-line, THANKS!!!
