4th Annual Worldview Super Conference 2010

Last week, we attended the Worldview Super Conference hosted by American Vision. Heard lots of great speakers, met lots of great folks, heard lots of great music, and got lots of great books.
All in 4 days.
The speakers were many and varied. Two of our favorites were Joe Morecraft (our pastor) and Kevin Swanson. Joel McDurmon, Israel Wayne, Bill Potter, Gary North, and John Eidsmoe were also very good. It is mind boggling the amount of History, Economics, Theology, and Apologetics that was taught. James Lansberry, employee of Samaritan Ministries brought a very interesting lecture on the future of the Health Care system in America.

The music was out of this world!

We had never heard Nathan Clark George before. During one of his several concerts, he did a duet with Judy Rogers.


Harp of Dixie was amazing! Debra Brinson has one of the most amazing voices I've ever heard. We didn't get good pictures of this performance because we were seated at an odd angle.

Our friends the Carrel Family brought bluegrass into the mix and totally brought the roof down!
They host a Bluegrass Festival twice a year at Ahava Springs.

Although there were several families from Alabama, whom we had known before, and a few from Georgia, I was surprised at how many people from New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and California were there.

Farm Happenings

Howdy y'all!

It's been a verrrry busy summer for us, but now it's slowing down a little. Our garden has produced loads of corn, beans, peppers, squash, and zucchini. Our cantaloupes and watermelons are still coming in, but that's about it right now.

We've also added a few more animals to the farm.

This is Bonnie (as in Bonnie Blue). She's a gorgeous 1 1/2 year old Polled Jersey. (Polled is a fancy word for "no horns"). She's due to give birth in October.

This is one of our two roosters. They've just begun crowing and it sounds pretty funny!

Here are our two beehives. We bought these from a local beekeeper back in May. So far, so good. Any and all pointers would be appreciated!

And last, but not least, our new puppy! He's half black lab and half border collie. We have named him Saban and he's pretty hyper right now!

In terms of projects...

'Nuff said?
We're fencing in about 17 acres and have really enjoyed borrowing our neighbors' tractors!

Hope all of y'all have had a blessed summer so far.
If any of my fellow farmer bloggers do posts about their summer projects or garden productions, please post the link in the comments section. I'd like to hear from you!
