Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Get on your knees!

It's another cold cloudy day here on the Knolltop. I think it's about 10 out, but no that's good.

Today I get to interview a guy named Bill Broadie from Kansas. He has started a campaign to get steaks for all of our troops in Iraq. He and a board of directors have begun the Beef Battalion. I'm doing a feature on him and I'm looking forward to interviewing him. When I spoke with him yesterday he was on his way to Ft. Worth to tape an interview with the American Rancher, a show that airs on RFD-TV. I'll let you know how it goes!

In the meantime, tonight I speak in Monroe County and anyone who wishes to say a prayer or two for me, I would appreciate it. It seems something really good is going to come out of this and the reason I know this is because I have had a lot of spiritual warfare this week. Now, some of you are thinking..."this woman is really whacked out! What is she talking about....spiritual warfare?"

I'm not whacked out, but when you are trying to accomplish something good for God, then the enemy likes to hang around and tell you lies, make you say and do things you would never otherwise do and basically try to throw a monkey wrench into the whole deal. That's what I've been dealing with...listening to lies, saying things I would never say and being confronted with situations I've never had to deal with that come from out of no where.

So, those of you who read this who are incline to pray....please do so for me today and on Saturday as I speak again. And by the way, I need our truck to be out of the shop by Saturday...otherwise I have no way of getting to my speaking engagement in East Lansing...sad isn't it? Actually, I think it's funny....but let's pray and see how God answers that prayer...I will keep you updated!

Melissa, I will be praying for you as you prepare and give your talk. I agree with you on spiritual warfare, the devil knows when you are on the right path and will try to stop you and the good you will accomplish. Hang in there and know you are being prayed for. I will look for an update.
