Journeying through life with my hand clinging to my Savior.

Welcome! Thank you for stopping by.

I am first and foremost a servant of Jesus Christ.  I am also wife to my best friend, Daniel, and Mom to our three blessings – Travis, Andrew and Lauryn.  We homeschool and are very active in our Awana program at church.


My husband and I are full-time multi-generational alternative farmers on Polyface Farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I love farm life and all things associated with it.  Our farm uses creation as a template for raising our animals. We are firm believers that healthy animals make healthy people. We use no hormones or antibiotics and all of our animals are on pasture. You can read more about our farm by visiting our website.


I have always loved to create stories and have been writing short stories for family and friends from the time I was old enough to spell. I am an avid reader and consider reading as my top hobby. My favorite stories in the Bible are Esther and Jesus’ parables. My dream is to complete my novel incorporating farming and faith.


In addition to reading, I also have a huge fondness for quilts and creative crafts. I hope the pictures and stories of my creations will inspire you to share your own.


Here is what you can expect from the following titles (categories):

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD,

“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Again, thank you for stopping by, I hope that you’ll kick up your feet, have a look around and stay a while.

My hope and prayer is that this blog will bless and inspire you to live more richly and fully in your everyday life.

    Hi Sheri!

    I actually found this through Kristen on facebook, thanks Kristen! Your description of your battle with Lyme touched me profoundly. I can never put it, or write in words what it’s like. You have a gift for sure! Lyme is life altering. I used to have many doubts and question my faith considerably, and this was before I got sick. Strangely, being sick has erased all doubt, and I have never been more sure of His presence than I am right now. Yet another thing that’s hard for me to explain, but I know you get it.

    Your farm life, your family, your faith, your battle with lyme, all of it, is an inspiration to me.
    Good luck with your writing! ~Lynn

  4. Hi Sheri,
    My boss has come down with a diseas in the past few weeks that the doctors can’t diagnose. He was tested for Lyme. Have you read Brandilyn Collins latest suspense that deals with Lyme? She also has a blog on Lyme.
    I’m so glad you’re better!

    Hi Sheri,
    We crossed paths on NovelTrack, and I’m so glad I came to visit you here. I wanted to congratulate you on reaching your goals with NovelTrack and NANOWRIMO and discovered all kinds of inspiration to boost me along as I work to achieve my goal of writing God-centered historical novels. Thanks so much for the wonderful time I’ve spent here. It was a real blessing.

    I’m sorry I haven’t been here before, Mrs. Salatin. I had no idea!! This is a great place, and I think I’ll be coming back. Make that “definitely”!!

    I’m an aspiring writer, and I love to connect with people who enjoy reading/writing as much – or more – than I do. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

    How funny life is. I commented on a post at Pioneer Woman and Annie at Morning Glory responded. I checked out her blog, loved it, saw your comment and came over to your blog. How funny that I was led here because next to me are several books written by … your father-in-law, I guess? Love the mysteries of life. I find your blog beautiful and inspiring and look forward to reading more.
