Hello all. I am a young woman from rural Ohio and I wish to share my experiences with you as I journey down the road of self-reliance. I am no expert in any subject, however I am willing to share what I’ve learned and learn more myself. I have lived off grid for, all totalled, about twelve years. I live with my parents and together we do our best to live closer and closer to the land. We heat with wood, use solar power as much as we can, had our first serious veggie garden this year, and use a composting toilette system. I have helped raise goats and chickens for many years and have a small amount of experience with horses. I have been learning as much herbology as I can as I can. With this country’s economy in total chaos and natural disasters on the rise, I believe that it is prudent to learn the old arts to preserve ourselves and our freedom. I am a Messianic Christian, devoted 100% to YHVH God and His son, Yeshua Jesus. I invite you to fellowship with me on this blog as we prepare to tackle the dark times ahead. May God give you peace.
