Two women. One from the United States and one from Mexico. Did we know our paths would cross one day? No! But, I am so glad they did. My life is forever changed. Are we the same? In some ways, yes. In other ways, no. Her life much harder than I could ever imagine. Some would look at me and say I am far better off than the other woman. Some would say I was born into privilege. But what makes me any better than anyone else? Because I was born in a country where life is much easier? Because I was born in the US? How much different my life would be if I was born in a third world country. Why was I the lucky one to be born in North America? But, am I really the blessed one? Sometimes I question if I am truly fortunate. The other woman able to take one moment at a time; to be focused on what is truly important, family. Me, so busy with life and not able to relax without feeling guilty. Questions that stir in my mind as I sit watching, talking, and waiting among the beautiful people here in a Mexico.

We live on 20 beautiful acres, up in the mountains. I am a lover of Christ,who died for my sins. We are off-grid homesteaders and this blog is about our journey over the past years. My husband has been awesome during this time of simple living. We have a ministry called Cherith Brook. Which is a place for those who want to dive deeper into the Bible can come and learn and get away from it all. You can visit our website at www.cherithbrookministries.org 1 Kings 17:3 talks about Elijah when he was told by God to go to the Brook Cherith and hide. This is what our ministry is all about - people coming and being refreshed. They can stay as long as they like. We make homemade bread, candles, and other things such as rose petal jelly.
