After writing out a post a couple of days ago about why I chose to be a SAHM, I realized that I’ve never taken the time to write out our decision to move back to Milford and farm. This decision has caused quite a few people to question our choice and how it will affect our lives, whether for the positive or negative. I want to write this down, to remember, why we are making such a big move for our family. More so, I want to remember how this idea, which turned into a dream, was planted in my heart and grew and how God has been involved in every part of it.
Eric and I met at Hesston College and started dating after an all night walk around a precious, tiny Mennonite town in 2006. After walking and talking for over 10 hours and watching the sunrise over the soccer fields, it was very apparent to me that he wanted to move back and farm along side his dad and grandpa someday. I knew that if I was going to marry this man, that someday we would be moving back to Milford. From that point on, there was no turning back. If his future was the farm, then so was mine.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
