Hello, Sarah here from Alabama! I figured an introduction may be nice. I think of myself as old fashioned compared to the majority of people around me. I have an old soul and dream of living a more simple life than what I already do. As a young girl I would read the Little House on the Prairie series and wish I lived in those days. Throughout the years I taught myself to sew and such, but it wasn't until after multiple setbacks happened in life that I found myself learning new things. I love to garden although I don't think I'm so good at it yet but that's part of why I'm on this site...to learn as much as I can and grow more in learning about gardens and the whole homesteading life. After all now is the perfect time for me to learn. I love working with my hands to create things and I love the outdoors. Hiking, gardening, animals, sewing, crocheting, baking, canning, woodworking, and soap making are a few of the many things I enjoy. I want my life to reflect Christ as without Him I am nothing. My greatest friends are found in nature whether it be a gentle breeze, a night sky or a chirping bird. Time is the most valuable gift one can receive and simplicity is oh so beautiful. I look forward to learning many new things and am thankful for the chance to be a part of this group. Maybe I'll even "meet" others in Alabama who live the simple life!
Many blessings to all!

Welcome, you will find lots of information but also support on here. There is so much available to you, but I think you already know the most important aspect of your development in stewardship is self maintenance and relational maintenance. Those are the source of inspiration and strength, and are the single biggest thing we seem to have lost in "modernity".
Enjoy and hope you will find your own niche as you progress!
