About Me

My photo
I am a 29-ish yr old married mother of 8. My family is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My darling husband is my very best friend and together we are raising 8 of the best kids in the world! They are Rose(12) Sarah(12) Ammon(10) Malachi(8) Gabriel(7) Hannah(5) Maggie(4) and Abbie(3) We currently own 2 dogs, 1 bird, 5 chinchillas, 1,000,000 rabbits, 1 cat, 4.5 horses, and one ferret. We just purchased a home that is definately a "fixer-upper", with land and room for the kids to roam. Our goal is to run a mostly self sustaining farm and live in peace as we grow as a strong family unit. We have seen our fair share of hardships, but we are thankful for the many blessings the Lord gives us on a regular basis!

An Update...

For now I will just let you know that we are settling into a routine in Indiana. John has a job that has good earning potential but is currently a fraction of what we were making previously. We are living with my sister until we can get back on our feet. We've been here since late July but I have not had the required mindset to post anything. (A million points to Shannon and Brian for taking in 10 people a cat, a dog, and a bird with out hesitation!)
It's fall and it is beautiful here! I'm setting aside my absolute disdain for Indiana winters and pretending we won't have one this year. So all is well in the Leschorn life.
I have recently discovered Dave Ramsey and I am using our situation to take advantage of the advice he offers in his program. We'll see how that goes.
Much love to all the friends and family that have been praying for us. Please keep it up!
