The Farm Family Table⏐Homesteading, Homemaking, Christian Mom

New Do you desire a simpler, healthier lifestyle for your family but just feel stuck in the hustle of busy mom life? Do you wish there was an easy way to start homesteading without immediately feeling overwhelmed, burned out, or not good enough?

Hi, I’m Jocelyn, and I’m so excited you’re here at The Farm Family Table. I remember when I became a new mom, I wanted to set my child up for their best, healthiest life, but often I felt exhausted and discouraged. I wanted to provide the best food, from-scratch, and be more self-reliant, but it felt impossible to balance learning new skills, taking care of my home, and spending quality time with my kids. I felt overwhelmed by all the things I wanted and needed to do, and felt guilty when I couldn’t keep up. I compared myself to picture-perfect farm life on social media, only to feel like I’m not doing enough but not sure how to do more. This was not the life God had planned for me.

But then I discovered a secret to start homesteading the easy way for less stress, more joy, and more time focusing on what matters most, faith and family. What if I told you, there’s a way that you can achieve healthy balance and thrive in this lifestyle that God is calling you to?

    28. Homesteading, Health, and God's Design for Food

    I think there are so many of us that feel drawn to the homesteading lifestyle, and we might question, is this what God is really calling me to? Is homesteading actually biblical? What is God’s design for food, for our health, and how do all those things mesh together? Today we are going to be taking a look at how the many aspects of homesteading can be honoring to God, improve our health, and ultimately follow God’s design for how he created people to live. And as we dive into God’s word today, I really hope this conversation inspires you that what you are doing is for the glory of God.
     
    I hope this episode encourages you to glorify God through homesteading and maybe even shows you some areas that you can press in a little deeper to Him. Thanks for joining me!

    24. Starting Homesteading When Your Spouse Isn’t on Board

    24. Starting Homesteading When Your Spouse Isn’t on Board

    Homesteading comes with a lot of big decisions. Should we expand our garden, should we get chickens, should we invest in a grain mill and start grinding our own grains, should we buy a property with more land and move? But, if you are married, these are decisions that you need to make together, and sometimes as a husband and wife, you may not always be in agreement. It is great to have all of these homesteading dreams, but what if your husband doesn’t share your dreams? What if you are ready to grow your homestead, but your husband isn’t on board with what you had hoped or planned? Today, I want to share my thoughts and come alongside you, as one wife to another,, and talk about how to approach this situation while honoring Christ in your marriage. 
     
    I hope this episode challenges you in God’s word and that it gives you wisdom and insight in how to deal with things when you and your husband might be in disagreement about your homestead. I pray that God would guide you as you navigate these differences with your spouse.

Love the cooking tips!

Jocelyn’s advice about meal prepping and batch cooking was very calming to listen to. Seriously! Reading blogs and listening to influencers talk about to how to cook from scratch is usually a bit daunting but she empowers you to really feel like you can start one step at a time. Learning how to be cooking better for your family and doing it without overwhelm is much appreciated!

Journaling Your Why!

I have been desiring to homestead for several years now. Slowly I have grown in homesteading right where I am in town by implementing small homesteading principles in our home & backyard. We are prayerfully taking steps to purchase our homestead property and I found Jocelyn’s story and how she got to her why so encouraging! I feel so edified by her & the God given desire for us to homestead! Thank you Jocelyn for helping me take the time to pray through & journal my why!

I relate heavily!

As soon as you said you found out your pcos diagnosis and wanted to approach it holistically, I knew I needed to stay! I like that the podcast doesn’t have an over the top, influencer approach but feels like a genuine topic discussion with a sister in Christ. Good stuff, I’ll continue to listen! <3
