We are a self consciously Christian family living on a 13 acre “mini farm” in the mountains of beautiful Southwest Virginia.  In a purposely simplistic nutshell, our family can be “categorized” as such:
  • We home educate all of our children in a distinctively Christian manner.
  • We embrace a biblical model of the family as a covenantal, father led unit.
  • We believe in the necessity of being joined to the visible church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We enjoy practicing biblical stewardship over the land God has placed in our hands.

 “…that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace.”

Who can find a virtuous woman?  
  ... for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her,  
  ... so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil ...  
  ... all the days of her life.
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh  
  ... willingly with her hands.
She is like merchants' ships;  
  ... she bringeth her food from afar.
She riseth also while it is yet night,  
  and giveth meat to her household ...
and a portion to her maidens.  
  She considereth a field, and buyeth it:
with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.  
  She girdeth her loins with strength,
and strengtheneth her arms.  
  She perceiveth that her merchandise is good:
... her candle goeth not out by night.  
  She layeth her hands to the spindle,
... and her hands hold the distaff.  
  She stretcheth out her hand to the poor;
... yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.  
  She is not afraid of the snow for her household:
... for all her household are clothed with scarlet.  
  She maketh herself coverings of tapestry;
... her clothing is silk and purple ...  
  ... Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.  
  Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the Lord,  
  she shall be praised.
