Meet Nicole from Homestead to Heaven

Hello and welcome! I’m Nicole, the heart and hands behind this blog. My husband, John, and I live in a suburban neighborhood with our 7 children. Our dream is to one day have acreage of our own with all of the quaint homestead trimmings. Until then, we are learning how to steward well our family, home, and time here by creating homegrown and homemade food, developing routines and rhythms of a simple life that bring harmony to our family, build community around us, and continue to trust God in the midst of uncertainty. We are also very blessed to carry out some of our homesteading endeavors to a greater extent on my parents’ 22 acres 17 miles from where we live. There we raise chickens, grow a larger garden, and work on some of our canning skills.

My journey to homesteading is a story of trust and hope. As a little girl, before homesteading was the thing that it is today, I knew I wanted to live this life. Yet, as often happens, the path to our goals isn’t as straight as we originally imagine they would be. There have been ups and downs, joy and setbacks along the way. Through it all, we have continued to move slowly forward, learning and maintaining new skills, and striving to trust God with it all – even in the most uncertain of times.

Homesteading, to me, is more than just a lifestyle; it’s about stewarding well all that God has given to us: Our bodies, our homes, our time, the people around us, and even our circumstances. Instead of viewing any of these as something that is holding us back from our dreams, let us start to view them as lessons to prepare us as we move forward. It is my hope that the contents of this blog inspire and encourage you to do just that.
