Freebie Friday – 12-28-07- Homesteading

December 28, 2007 at 8:47 pm (Uncategorized)


Welcome to Freebie Fridays!


The new year is right around the corner! This time of year many of us are thinking about resolutions for the future. One thing I would like to do this year is focus more on homesteading.  No, I am not planning on moving to a farm and raising my own food. (Although, that might be interesting!)

I recently learned that the word homesteading, simply put, means to be "steadfast at home." I love my home and I frequently feel that the world around us moves too fast! 

Recently, I received a free introductory issue of a great new newsletter called New Harvest HomesteadThis newsletter was like a breath of fresh air to me! It is filled with insightful, Biblically based articles about being a homemaker. There are articles about The Homestead (Home Centered) Woman, The Homestead Way of Life, The Homestead Kitchen and more! If you are like me and you try to keep your home simple and family focused you will love this newsletter! 

Here is the good news! This week only, New Harvest Homestead is offering their Introductory Issue, Holiday Issue and Summer Issue for FREE to Freebie Friday Readers! All you have to do is send a blank email to with the words Freebie Friday Offer in the subject line. Your free newsletters will be sent to you via email within 48 hours. You can learn more about the newsletter by visiting the New Harvest Homestead website

Another great free resource for homesteading is This is an informative and friendly online community for homesteaders, homesteaders at heart, and people interested in homesteading. If you are interested in getting back to the basics or incorporating the homestead mindset this is a great place to blog for free or read other homestead blogs. Whether you live in urban, suburban or rural areas. Whether you have a container garden on your patio in the city or 300 acres out in the sticks, you will find like-minded people at

"But we urge you, brethren, to excel still more, and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands, just as we commanded you; so that you may behave properly toward outsiders and not be in any need."
1 Thessalonians 4:10-12

I’ll see you next week right here at – Freebie Fridays!
