Simpler Life

Sign in to follow this  


My wife and I are soon joining the Mennonites. We recently purchased a 130 year old farmhouse that needs complete restoration. We are hoping to live partially off grid one small step at a time. We plant our own food, can most of them and hydrate the rest. We hang dry our clothes on lines in the 2nd story balcony and in the cellar. We have a cistern that needs cleaning and next spring we plan on getting rain barrels and using our floor pump.


We bought this house because we wanted a quieter life after years of renting. It hasn't been easy as we find many things that need repairs. But I wouldn't trade this for anything. I am thankful to God for His blessings.


All of this prompted me to create a website chronicling my journey to becoming a Mennonite and the owner of an old farmhouse. Please check it out.

I find this very interesting. I guess I thought they didn't bring "outsiders" in and that one had to be born into the community etc. Anyway...very interesting.
