Shalom! Peace! Hello!

“Shalom” is taken from the root word shalam, which means “to be safe in mind, body, or estate.” It speaks of completeness, fullness, or a type of wholeness that encourages you to give back – to generously re-pay something in some way.

I am Tara, a child of the Most High, wife, mother, and friend. I welcome you to read through my posts about life, family, & fellowship; and how the Peace of God guides me through them all where I call home at Wooded Acres.

In 2012 God had taken my husband and I to where we now call home. This had opened up a new way of thinking for our lives and the family, as we had just been blessed with the adoption of our baby girl. Living off the land, homesteading, started to take root in our thinking and day dreaming.

We are to use this land not as my own, but as a place where God’s presents resides in all we do. From family, which includes our foster children, to fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ, to everyday life like cooking, canning, gardening, homesteading, and homeschooling. I will share what the experiences have taught me or are teaching me so that it may re-pay something in some way. Without God and without fellowship we can not have the peace of God that gives completeness, fullness, or the type of wholeness that encourages us to give back into the lives around us.

May the Lord bless you
and protect you,
May the Lord smile on you
and be gracious to you,
May the Lord show you his favor
and give you peace.

  1. This is the right blog for anybody who would like to understand this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic that has been written about for years. Great stuff, just wonderful!

  2. Exceptional post but I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this
    subject? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little
    bit further. Cheers!
