Fall, Leaves, Corn, and Beans


Fall engages us in a variety of activities, including harvesting corn and soybeans, reciting verses for the National Bible Bee Competition, milking cows, hauling manure, playing with kittens, and raking leaves.


Raking leaves can be a party!



Some specialize in the abstract.

Filling up the grain wagons.


Not every day is picture-perfect, as you can see here! The crew discussed how to best extricate the combine, after its front wheels sunk into a soft, muddy, rut.


When one tractor wouldn't do the job, we eventually used two to pull out the combine. 
Thankfully, no one was hurt, and harvest continued.

And that's a brief snapshot of what we've been up to this fall!

Our Sacred Duty: A Voters Call to Action



Tomorrow, millions of Americans will go to the polls to elect US representatives and senators, state representatives, senators, and governors, and local officials.

Watch this inspiring video by evangelist Caleb Garraway, to learn why America has been blessed by God and why voting is not only a privilege, but also a sacred duty.

"Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." --John Jay, first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court
