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!

The Lily Cupboard - Book Review

The Lilly Cupboard, by Shulamith Levey Oppenheim is a sweet, captivating and heart wrenching children's book about a little girl whom her parents sent to the country to live with a Dutch family during the war in an effort to protect her from what they saw happening to Jews where they lived during World War 2.

25 pages, recommended for ages 4-8 (Although I think it is appreciated by all ages!) The illustrations, done by Ronald Himlar are beautiful.

This book helps open conversations about trust, love, bravery, the importance of obedience. Also how sometimes we have to do things that are scary or that we don't want too... just because they are the right things to do. I highly recommend this book. (Even though it IS heart wrenching!)
