About Me:

Hi!
Please add me on facebook if you'd like.

https://www.facebook.com/1childoftheKing

Favorite Books: 

and thanks for visiting my living profile!

I come from a Christian home with two great hard working
parents who have put their children's up-bringing first and foremost in their lives. I intend to do the same.



My goals are to get married to the one and only that God wants for me and to own an organic farm that is self sufficient and independent. I am also working toward having my own business so that I can spend more time with my future wife and children. Most importantly, where God leads, I will lead my family.

Some of my core beliefs are that Christians are called to be servants and witnesses to win souls for Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. I try to bring out the best in people and want to better their lives in any way I can.

James 1:
27"Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."

I am an old-fashioned guy. and enjoy growing fruits, nuts and berries to eat and live the healthy life


I believe in debt-free living as much as possible.







I am blessed to be part of talented family of singers, songwriters and musicians. We have a family band and we play in our church and occasionally travel to churches and stages performing (Strictly Gospel) music of different genres including bluegrass, country, contemporary and inspirational. Our instruments that our group plays consists of: guitar, lead guitar, piano/keyboard, mandolin, harmonica, bass, drums (and occasionally violin, dobro, banjo, dulcimer & autoharp)


Our family owns a photography studio and I assist in the photography as well as help design and build the props, etc.


We, my dad and I, also are getting into making musical instruments, such as mandolins and dulcimers.


I try to be easy to get along with and keep a positive outlook on life.
So feel free to leave me a note.




Galatians 5:22-23 KJV
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.


Philippians 4:8 KJV
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Friends Notes:

I was just informed that I'd need to repost without the web link, because it makes the rest of the message run off the page. Sorry!

First of all, in answer to your question about my brother's photography, why don't you contact him and ask him? He has his contact info on his website.

Wow, that's a lot of smoothies per day, but what amazing nutrient-packing you're doing! Very Happy So do you not mix your fruits and veggies? I've done a lot of fruit ones, and just mixed veggies in with. When you do your veggie smoothies, particularly the ones with carrots and sweet potatoes, do you steam or cook them first? I used to put carrots in, but then I was told that you really didn't digest the raw carrots that well.

What kind of goats do you have, meat or dairy?

1/2 acre is not that small. You can produce a LOT of food on a 1/2 acre. I've planned gardens and stuff for that small of space, and you'd be surprised how many gardens and animals you can comfortably provide for!

We do not have any animals right now but a couple show-quality blue dutch rabbits, less than two dozen chickens and our German Shepherds. We just recently moved up here, so we had to sell most of our animals down in Louisiana. I did have a herd of meat rabbits (New Zealand Whites), a flock of Columbian Wyndotte chickens (pretty things) and a flock of mixed, a pig, my dogs of course, dairy goats, a small orchard and about 1/4 acre of garden space.

I LOVED our goats. Towards the end of their last milking season I was experimenting with cheese-making and I had a blast! I made soft cheeses, and when we get goats again(Lord willing!) I'm wanting to try experimenting with some aged cheeses. You just have to be so careful with goat milk because it can very easily pick up a bad taste.

The garden was a LOT of fun, and I cannot wait to get ours started here. My parents were not planning on us really doing much of a garden this year with us building a new house and all, but spring is in the air and my fingers are itching to get dirty! I'll probably wind up convincing them we need one! Smile Back when I spent one year almost completely with the garden and our animals, I discovered how fun it is to experiment and try new things, seeing how much of a harvest I could get with different natural techniques. That year I actually planted 150 tomato plants with at least 15 varieties! (I think that was a LITTLE overkill!) This year or next I would love to try four different gardening techniques and compare the harvest. Lasagna gardening, raised bed, no till, and regular tilled rows. I also experimented with different "treatments" for bugs and stuff. I inter-planted herbs and certain flowers and well as used DE (Diatomaceous Earth) quite a bit. Oh, and you know how ants and aphids LOVE okra? Well the ants actually use the aphids to harvest sugar from the plants. They bring the aphids to a tender spot in the plants, let them get full of sugars, nip a tiny hole in them to drink the sugars, and then move them somewhere else. If you put old crystallized jelly or honey at the bottom of the okra plants, the ants will get their sugars from there and actually start eating the aphids for their protein instead!

Okay, I'd better stop before I REALLY get going! Yes, I love my garden, and I love my animals. My brother is talking about getting some goats, and I am trying to encourage him in that direction. I can't get any on my own while I'm in school. I'm just ready for anyone to get some! That's the only real milk I can drink. (health reasons)

Very Happy This is a bit long, sorry! Once you get me started on gardening and animals, it's difficult to stop!

I know I really enjoyed the Makers Diet, and having several health issues with limited diet anyway, I'd love to try it out. I've not read any of his newer books though. Which ones do you like best?

Oooh, smoothies sound good! When I'm actually in a routine I have a smoothie for breakfast at least 5 out of 7 days per week. I kind of got out of it with the winter break, but I'm needing to get back into it again! My favorite smoothie as of right now is almond milk, brown rice protein powder, banana, cultured coconut milk, and then some slippery elm and probiotic. Just recently I started adding spinach to it, and it's good, I just can't look at it! Very Happy

I tried to follow the link you sent me, but it didn't work for some reason. Very Happy

I see you have several farm animals listed on your profile page. Do you have a farm?

Just wanted to say that I had a lot of fun reading your profile. You have a very creative page!

I find it interesting that you enjoy the book "The Maker's Diet". I had three copies at one point in time! Do you agree completely with everything in it?

Does your family have a website? Ours does something very similar to yours. www.terofamilyministries.com

What instruments do you play? If I'm not being to bold!
