My life (and why I blog)

Hello readers,

Before you continue reading on this blog, I think that I ought to explain a few things about myself.

#1. I was homeschooled.

Now, don’t start thinking that I lived in a box with a laptop and a few crusts of bread. No, I was raised on a beautiful farm with my two brothers, three sisters, two happily married parents, a dog, roughly twenty cats, and plenty of other animals. I didn’t go to school until I started university in fall of 2016. My upbringing was filled with mixed blessings, but God works everything out for good.

#2. I grew up on a farm.

Not a hobby farm, petting zoo (our house is the real zoo:)), or Hutterite farm, but a real chickens-cows-tractors-and-haybales farm. During the summer, we raise broiler chickens, turkeys, around 100 cow/calf pairs, rabbits, laying hens, mini donkeys, llamas/alpacas, sheep, and goats. During the winter, we do not have broiler chickens or turkeys, but we still have the rest of the animals to look after. We’ve been a family farm operation for nearly 20 years, and if you want to know more about the farm, you can visit our website.

#3. I am Catholic. Strongly Catholic.

Simply put, the Catholic Church is the church that Jesus Christ founded. Although mistakes throughout history can be attributed to the church, I advise you to double-check your facts and dig deeper. I also wish to say one thing in our defense: we are all human, and we all make mistakes. Many of these historic wrong-doings were not sanctioned by the Church, but were the result of human error. In Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s words:

“There are not one hundred people in the United States who hate The Catholic Church, but there are millions who hate what they wrongly perceive the Catholic Church to be.”

#4. In case you don’t like what you’re hearing……..

If you don’t like this blog, then you may want to find something else. The things that I say may not make everyone laugh, and the things that I tell you may be unpleasant to hear. The only reason that I blog is because it is my corner of the world where I can be myself and share the faith.

God bless you all!
