Schedules and Plans

Hello, welcome back to Faith on the Farm!! Today I will be sharing my prospective plan for blogging this summer, and some other goals and hopes. The nice thing about schedules and plans is that you can break them whenever you want to. For instance, if I was planning to write about one thing, but God was telling me that I really needed to write about something else, I can simply write whatever God wants me to.

There has been a demand for more farm-related posts, so whenever I have time, I will add farm updates and stuff to post on Wednesday, in between my regular posts.

During the summer, my posts will be scheduled to post on Saturday. However, I will be changing it (Lord willing) to Friday in the Fall.

So, without any further ado, here is the plan!!

2 more extensive spiritual life sort of posts:

  • July 21- The Purpose of Prayer
  • August 4- Serving Wholeheartedly

2 photography posts:

  • July 28- Recent Photography (Where I try to pick my best 8 pictures that I’ve taken so far this summer)
  • August 11- Me and My Cello

The rest of the summer:

  • August 18- Beloved
  • August 25- Something Like a Farm Tour
  • August 31- My Summer in Review

For Fall (which starts September 14th in my blogging mind), I’m very excited to announce a new series, that will last pretty much all of Fall. This is a series that the Lord has really laid on my heart as something I need to think about, talk about, and write about. It will be series based on Philippians 4:8.

And the title of this series is…………….

“Think on These Things”

Now that I am done with blogging plans, I will move on to summer plans in general.

This summer, I am volunteering for a couple weeks out of the summer, as a counselor at a Christian camp. On the weeks where I have camp, my blog posts will be written ahead of time and scheduled to post when I said they would be. It is my prayer that in these couple of week at camp, God would use me in ways that I have not known before. Please pray that I would be a light to the kids, and everyone around me.

Other than camp, I have a couple of other projects I’m working on this summer.

For one thing, I’m going to try to not eat as much sugar, to exercise, and get up at 6 or earlier (while still making sure to get in bed by 9 or earlier so that I get enough sleep).

I am also (supposedly) working on the WPCB (WordPress Christian Blog) directory. I’m beginning to wonder if it will ever be finished. For those who commented on the Blog Directory Temporary Comment Page, I am letting you know, that the part of the comment where you tell me what your blog is about, WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED IN THE DIRECTORY. I don’t have room to fit them in, and I only got 2 or 3 people who told me what their blog was about, and it wouldn’t be fair to only include some people and not others.

On that note, if you have a Christian blog, AND I AM NOT FOLLOWING YOU, then please comment here. If I am following you, and I think your blog is a Christian blog (and if it is, I should be able to tell) you will automatically be put in the directory unless for some reason you don’t want to be listed, which in that case you would contact me telling me.

What other stuff do I want to do this summer?

  • I want to learn Symphonic Variations for cello (It’s pretty hard).
  • I want to continue to read. A lot.
  • I need to organize my desk (notice I said NEED TO not want to).
  • I want to improve my photography skills.
  • Most importantly, I want to dramatically improve my prayer life and Bible study. I want to thirst for God’s word and feed on it. I want to rely entirely on God. I want that God would be my joy continually and that He would lead me, and help me, and uphold me. Amen

Thanks for reading about my goals, plans, and aspirations!


Note: Thanks to anyone who took my survey. However, for some reason, the questions I really wanted to hear answers to were not replied to. The questions were what can I do to improve. I would love to hear constructive criticism. I have not heard any feedback as to my writing, and would like to note that I would not feel the slightest bit hurt if you tore my writing apart and pointed out all my flaws, in order to help me improve. Thanks! You can take my survey here.


I pray that this blog would be a service and a light. If there is any way I can serve you through this blog or pray for you I would love to hear it. Please contact me here.

Thank you so much to you, reader, and to all my supporters and followers!!! I am very blessed.

“Blessed is the man who makes
    the Lord his trust,
who does not turn to the proud,
    to those who go astray after a lie!”

-Psalm 40:4 (ESV)

THE Q&A!!!!!!

Welcome to the Q&A post, where I answer 50 question!!! Thank you to every single person who asked me a question for this Q&A. Also thank you to every single person who follows and supports my blog! I would like to give an extra big thank you to Ariana from ariana’sflyinglife.wordpress.com for giving me 20 questions and reblogging my post so that I would get enough questions. So without any further ado, here comes all 50 questions! (Disclaimer: these are in no particular order)

  1. Q: What is your favorite animal? A: Currently my favorite animal is my dog.
  2. Q: Have you ever taken an airplane ride? A: No.
  3. Q: Have you seen a giraffe before? A: At the Zoo??
  4. Q: What do you love most about living on a farm? A: Either spending more time with my family or working with my hands.
  5. Q: What is your favorite dog breed? A: Currently my favorite dog breed is a Bluetick Coonhound (’cause that’s what my dog is) but I also like English Shepherds.
  6. Q: What is your favorite color? A: Blue.
  7. Q: What do you think God has called you to do with your life? A: At this point, I do not specifically know what God has called me to do with my life. For right now, he simply wants me to serve and prepare for whatever he has planned for me. Whatever his plan is I know it is the best plan he could ever have for, and I pray that I will always try to humbly submit to his better plan for my life. I have so much more to say on the subject….but on to the next question.
  8. Q: I’d like to know if you’ll have your own farm when you get out on your own. A: Lord willing, I’d absolutely love to (really badly).
  9. Q: Ice-cream or cake? A: Ice cream!!!
  10. Q: What is your favorite dessert? A: Cheesecake. It’s awesome.
  11. Q: When do you feel closest to God? A: Right after I’ve been obedient to him. Often obedience looks like praying and reading my bible when I feel the Lord urging me to do so. These are also a source of joy and closeness with my Lord and savior.
  12. Q: What is your favorite food? A: Ummm…really hard question. I think I’ll say Homemade Alfredo!
  13. Q: The mountains or the beach? A: That’s an even harder question!!! It’s really a tossup, but I guess I’ll say the beach because it’s usually colder there.
  14. Q: What is your favorite Bible verse? A: I usually change it every two weeks or so but I think either Jeremiah 1:19 or Matthew 11:28-29. I’ll have them at the bottom of the page.
  15. Q: What are some of your favorite posts you have done? A: Probably “Who are the Least of These” and “Be Still and Know…The Lord of Hosts is With Us” would be my personal favorites.
  16. Q: What made you start blogging? A: I started a blog mainly for three reasons 1. As an outlet for the kind of writing I wanted to do 2. To help me be able to just WRITE 3. Because I’m secretly working on Graphic designing and HTML, CSS, Javascript, and PHP coding. (Yah, I know my blog design isn’t really “superior” yet)
  17. Q: What is your favorite book of the Bible? A: Psalms!! Or is it Philippians? I don’t know.
  18. Q: Do you like fire or ice better? A: Probably ice? Generally I prefer being too cold than too warm.
  19. Q: What is your favorite TV show A: I haven’t really watched a whole lot of TV shows. Does The Rifleman count?
  20. Q: What is your favorite thing to photograph? A: My favorite thing to photograph is roses.
  21. Q: Have you been over the ocean? A: Assuming I’m reading that correctly, no.
  22. Q: What person in Scripture stands out to you the most and why? A: Peter. Because even though he denied Jesus 3 times, he repented and became one God’s greatest instruments.
  23. Q: What pets do you have (if any)? A: We have 2 cats and a dog. And no, they do not really live in peaceful harmony with each other, but they can keep their distance from each other. The problem is when our Bluetick Coonhound thinks the cats are Coons…..then sometimes the dog ends up treeing a cat.
  24. Q: What are 3 childhood movies? A: I know I already mentioned this one but: The Rifleman!! Also The Little House on the Prairie (Until I read the books). Next probably comes Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
  25. Q: How do you make your graphics? A: I use Photoshop and I love using the pen tool. I really don’t know anything about how other people do it.
  26. Q: What is your favorite movie? A: Either Couragous, Faith Like Potatoes, or Love Comes Softly.
  27. Q: What is up your fave book? A: Other than the Bible, I really don’t know. Probably Bun Hur: The Tale of the Christ (I’m in the middle of it right now). Or maybe Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. I really don’t know.
  28. Q: How long have you had your current Bible? A: I’ve had my current ESV Study bible for almost 2 years now. I’m hoping to get another more portable NASB version soon-ish
  29. Q: Tell us about daily life on your farm. A: My daily life on the farm is wonderful awesome. I’ve been seeing that more people want to hear about the farm side of my life not just the theology side, so I’m planning on doing more farm-related posts. I answered this question more fully here.
  30. Q: Can you tell us more about your farm, maybe about the animals on your farm? A: Umm… let’s see. We have something around, over, or under 100 cows. We have about 25 chickens, including a rooster and a couple pullets. We have 2 cats and 1 dog. We have something around 10-15 goats. (I’ll go and count later. It’s just we keep on selling and buying goats). I think I will more fully explore this question in a blog post.
  31. Q: Also, in your 3 day 3 quote challenge, what do you mean when ‘jumping up and down on one leg’ Why one leg? (If too personal don’t worry!) A: LOL. When I’m really excited, I’m really impulsive, so I do silly things like jump up and down on one leg. I don’t really know why. I can be a bit clumsy sometimes. It’s more like my way of saying “I was so excited I couldn’t contain myself”. If you would like to see this post, see it here.
  32. Q: What is life on the farm like? A: Life on the farm is a lot of hard work. It’s also a lot of fun. One of my favorite things are the starry nights and the beautiful landscapes. I’m thinking of doing a blog post series on the 5 benefits of being a farm kid. (#1 would be Work Ethic)
  33. Q: What is your favorite pie? A: Apple pie every time! (I mean MAYBE peach pie would be nice…)
  34. Q: What made you want to blog in the first place? A: I had to share my ideas/thoughts in some way! Every time I opened my bible and learned something really cool and wonderful, I wanted to share it with someone!
  35. Q: What are three things that inspire you to write, now that you have your blog up and running? A: 1) My Bible 2) My Life 3) Other bloggers.
  36. Q: How did you come to Christ? (this may be too long) A: Yah, it’s probably too long but here is the super shortened version. Maybe I’ll do a blog post or something later on it. I’ve grown up in a wonderful Christian home so I don’t have this worldly background that Christ saved me from. I was still born a horrible sinner. The first time I remember crying out to God in repentance was one Sunday when I was 6 years old. I had been reading the book of Jonah on our way to church and had been reading about the Ninevites repentance. Something in me wanted that and I wanted Him. I have simply grown from then.
  37. Q: Of the book reviews you do, why did you read those books in the first place? (What drew you to them?) A: Generally I first read books because either they’re on the shelf in the house, I’ve researched them, or someone at church recommends them. Really I read lots and lots of books so if it’s a clean fruitful book, I read it.
  38. Q: If you could have ANY wish granted what would it be? A; Other than like seeing Jesus face to face and all that……maybe getting a guitar?
  39. Q: How many siblings do you have? A: I have four. 3 sisters, 1 brother.
  40. Q: What is your dream job? A: Probably working with babies as a nurse? (Not the giving them shots part.)
  41. Q: What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? A: Generally anything chocolaty. My favorite specific flavor is Baskin Robins Gold Medal Ribbon ice cream flavor.
  42. Q: What is your dream vacation? A: Maybe going to Israel?
  43. Q: When did you start blogging? A: I started blogging 5 months ago
  44. Q: What do you do in your free time? A: I blog, try out new hairdos, do photography, play with my younger siblings, and have theological discussions with my family.
  45. Q: What denomination of church are you, if any? A: I am a follower of Christ. I don’t have a denomination label and I don’t need one. As for my theological beliefs, they are much to long of a list to put here.
  46. Q: If you had a superpower, what would it be? A: Selfishly, I would like to be able to turn invisible. But in the long run I would probably prefer flying.
  47. Q: Do you like to read? A: YESSSSS!!!! I absolutely love reading! I could all day long and read 21 books a week, but my family would probably not like that and besides, there is a time for reading, and there is a time to put your book down. But I read a lot. By the time I was 13 I had already read books like Wuthering Heights (I didn’t like that one much) The Tale of Two CitiesOliver Twist, and I was and still am struggling to find enough books to read to keep up with my reading appetite.
  48. Q: Do you play an instrument? A: Yes! I play the cello. I play a tiny bit of piano, but not enough to count. I also like to sing.
  49. Q: What is your preferred version of Scripture? (NKJV, NIV, etc.) A: My preferred is NASB, but my main bible is an ESV and I also use some of NKJV. I don’t think there is a “perfect” translation and I think the best thing to do is look at a more than one accurate word-for-word translation.
  50. This one is my favorite one ever so I saved it for last. Thanks to HEAVENSREEF for asking this question!
    • Q: I would like to know…….because I experience this myself and another blogger has agreed with me……if when you write about and for GOD that not only are you HIS instrument, but HE seems to lead you in your words and gives you ideas you never would have thought of yourself!? When you blog……does HE meet you there??
    • A: Yes and Yes!!! Particularly some days, it feels like during my bible study (or during prayer time, or really anytime), the Lord just lays on my heart a particular subject, and leads me in ways I never would have thought of on my own. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” -Isaiah 55: 9 (ESV)

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ANYONE WHO ACTUALLY READ THIS ENTIRE POST!!!!!!!!

Also thank you to all these people who gave me questions to answer:

Have a great day! (Don’t worry. I don’t think I’m every going to do such a long Q&A again. Maybe do more like 20 questions next time?)

Take my survey here.

Also, comments are open for a limited time!

My Current Favorite Bible Verse:

“They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you, declares the Lord, to deliver you.” -Jeremiah 1:19 (ESV)

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” -Matthew 11:28-29 (ESV)

Our Dream

I really want to do an Independence Day post, but I don’t have time to write a whole posts’ worth right now, so I decided to share a piece of writing I wrote a while ago. Here it is. Enjoy:

“Our Dream”

We all have a dream. Many of us dream of the perfect America, with true ‘Liberty and Justice for all’. Many dream of the day when all sin will be removed, when every tear will be wiped away. Some dream of the day when their burden of debt and poverty will be removed. And still others dream of the day when freedom and equality ring on every hill and through every valley. Martin Luther King Jr. had such a dream. It is a dream that captures the mind of every individual: the dream of a perfect world.

There are four core values that have stood as America’s foundation since the founding of our country. These four values are Liberty, Individualism, Equality, and Growth. These values are Godly qualities, as long as one does not block the other. If we begin to value growth over equality, it hurts the nation. Such behavior is shown by the actions of the Southern planters towards the blacks prior to and after the Civil War. We must value goodness more than liberty, or the freedom is not for all, and thus no longer a core value. It is our dream for America that Liberty and Equality, and Individualism and Growth prosper together in harmony.

Despite all laws, all rules, and all regulations, the government is unable to satisfy our dream for a ‘perfect’ equality. The problem is not that the government is not making enough laws or regulations. The problem is not that the government doesn’t understand what equality means. The problem starts in our hearts. Are our hearts focused on making America a perfect nation, or in spreading our dream with the world? We live in an imperfect world, incapable of perfection. Our dream cannot come true in this world, because our dreams are of the coming world. We must keep dreaming of the dream that will be fulfilled in the next life. We must keep dreaming because the perfect dream will guide our choices here on earth. We will look up and see the beauty of our dream. And through our God, the Lord of the universe, the creator of our God-given dream, we will follow our dream towards heaven.

We, Christian brothers and sisters, share a dream. It is the same dream that Daniel and Isaiah had. It is the same dream that John had. It is the same dream that Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. had. It is no longer a dream of America, it is a dream of heaven, with all nations bonded in brotherly love. It is a dream that God has given us. It is no longer a dream of earthly things, but of spiritual things of God. It is a dream of new life, without sin. The dream is pure joy. And we have a glimpse of this dream from God. We must share our dream, until the whole world knows, and praises God. For the Lord is our God, and he has given us this beautiful dream. It is our dream.

Have a wonderful day, celebrating the country that God has blessed us with!

“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” -Romans 13:1 (ESV)

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.” -1 Peter 2:16-17 (ESV)

Farm Life and All That Stuff

Hello, I’m back! I have just recently found out that when you concentrate and focus you can get more than twice as much done. So on that note, I’ve decided that I don’t need to back down to every other week for posting and I can still keep up with once a week posting over the summer. At times when I’m super busy, I’ll write the post ahead of time and schedule it to post whenever that time is.

I have practically planned every single post until November 9th. That may sound a little crazy and I might not stay with the plan until then, but it is always super fun to plan things. I find planning very exciting!! In a week or two, I may share that plan with you, depending if I decide that is it a good blogging plan.

In my last post, about The Possibly Upcoming Q&A, I asked for a people to ask me questions. If you haven’t or you would like to ask more, please go there now, as I’m trying to get at least 50 questions. On another note, please, I cannot answer questions about my age, name, or other personal information, so save me time and DON’T ask those questions.

Pretty much all of the questions asked so far were related to farm life. One person asked, “Tell us about your daily life on the farm”. As I am planning to answer 50 questions in one post, I cannot give super long answers so I decided to spend this post talking a little more about my farm life.

I am currently not particularly involved in the daily farm chores. For right now, I am mostly everybody’s helper. I help my dad move the chicken coop. I help my sister milk goats. I help my mom transplant plants. Currently, all our baby goats are either weaned or drinking of their moms, so I do not have to bottle feed them.

The biggest thing I am doing right now on the farm is irrigation. Every day, in the morning and in the evening, I move what my dad calls “The Main Line”. The main line is a really long line of PVC pipe with sprinkler heads at intervals. I drag the PVC pipeline in increments and try not to break it. If you bend too much one way at to sharp an angle, it will, like any other PVC pipe, snap. So it requires a little bit of practice to move it.

I also move a couple regular field sprinklers (I don’t know what they’re really called, they’re the ones that you poke into the ground with your foot and they’re about 3 ft. tall). Basically, I’m in charge of making sure our field don’t die so that our cows have something to eat so that they don’t die.

Something that happens about once a week to every other week is the moving of the cows. The cows are not on hay this time of year. Which means all they are eating is their pasture. Which is why I have to keep the pasture growing. When we move the cows from field to field, first my dad checks all the fences to make sure that they are all up and working. Then he calls all the cows to the gate with his special cow mooing call that he does really loud. The cows always know they are going to get moved or get new hay when he does that. Unless he tricks them.

Once he has them gathered at the gate, my job comes in. I make sure there are no stray cows left in the field, and I try to keep the cattle somewhat contained. Next Dad opens the gate and lets them go. The hardest part of my job at this point is making sure the calves go in the right direction. The calves have a tendency to run as fast as they can the opposite direction you want them to go. So you have to stay on your toes and be ready to run for it. With the big cows, you have clap your hands and wave your arms and yell “Yah, Yah, git!” and all sorts of other things. I generally am in charge of the majority of the herding unless it is a two-or-more person job.

Sometimes I wish we had horses. But we don’t, so we can round ’em up on foot.

At this point, we have lots of stuff ready to harvest in the garden. So almost every afternoon now, I go and harvest vegetables for dinner.

Of all the jobs, chores, and duties I have at home, my biggest one is cooking. Every morning I make coffee. About every other day I make breakfast. And lunch. I pretty much always make dinner. But the nice thing is, it’s something I really enjoy doing, and it is a big way I can serve others.


What ways do you serve others around you? How are you contributing to your family (or your church) with your talents? Are you investing the time that you have to grow, and/or help something or someone else grow?

“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’” -Mathew 25:23 (ESV)

The Possibly Upcoming Q&A at Faith on the Farm

I’ve seen a lot of other bloggers do this and I thought it was a great idea. I have been really blessed by the people who have shown interest in my blog and the amount of followers I have, even though I have only been blogging for a little over 4 months. SOOO……….

I decided I am going to do a 50 question Q&A as soon as I reach 50 followers. I’m thinking it might take a little while to both get 50 followers and to get 50 questions, so I’m predicting it will probably happen sometime in July.

So starting NOW, please start asking me questions. They could be random. They could be insightful. Hopefully I will have a mix. Ask me as many questions as you like, either commenting below, or contacting me via my contact form here. Once I reach 50 followers, I will choose 50 of my favorite questions that I have been asked, and will make Q&A blog post about them.

Have fun and comment below!

    and one man sharpens another.”

A Double Book Review: Two Books Every Christian Girl Should Read

Of all the Christian books out there for girls, there are two that I think ever girl should read. Other than the bible, these books are the ones that have shaped my life the most. If you are looking for a devotional book or just want to grow in some areas of your life read these books. If you are a young girl, perhaps an uncertain teenager, these are the books for you. These books are the kind of books I would want to share with my (future) children and read together as a family.

Now you are probably thinking, “Okay, I get it. These are awesome books, I should really read them, I know, blah blah blah. Could you just tell me what they are?”. Yes I will. I will tell you in the next paragraph.

“Beautiful Girlhood” revised by Karen Andreola

The first book is particularly for young girls who are just beginning to bud into womanhood. It is wonderful for all age levels but is particularly aimed at the teens (by that I mean in the literal, mathmatic sense, as in 10-20). It was originally written by M. Hale a long time ago, and was revised and updated by Karen Andreola. You can find it on Amazon here.

For the girl who reads this book, may your blossoming into womanhood, your example of sincerity, purity, and love, be a source of happiness for yourself and a star of hope to other girls.

“Disciplines of a Godly Woman” by Barbara Hughes

This is a book for every age. And if read with sincerity and willingness, it WILL change your life for the better. It is a book that I feel like I could read 5000X and still learn something more by reading it again. An added bonus are the resources at the back of the book. You can get the book here. Here is the summary of “Disciplines of a Godly Woman” that I got of Amazon:

Maybe discipline seems like a hard word to you—implying nothing but challenge and duty. Yet most of us see the value in cultivating spiritual disciplines, and we long to be more consistent in our relationship with God, even in the midst of our busy lives.

Combining biblical teaching, poignant stories, and insightful reflection questions, Barbara Hughes explores 15 vital disciplines in this classic book—helping us to mature as godly Christian women and giving meaningful shape to our lives.

I highly suggest both of these books. You seriously need to read them if you haven’t already.


Thank you for reading. What would you like to see on this blog? What are your favorite kinds of posts? Tell me here.

Another thing: I am working on a sort of blog directory. It is aimed towards fellow Christian bloggers. If you would like to have your blog show up on the blog directory when it is published in a couple weeks please comment here. If I like your blog and I am not already following you, I will probably follow your blog. The purpose of this new blog directory is NOT to advertise blogs. The purpose of the Christian blog directory is so that I can share different blogs that I like and so that all of us Christian bloggers can meet new people like ourselves. I know that was super confusing.

Have a great day!!


“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” -1 Peter 3:3-4 (ESV)
