Our Homestead Story:

The First Years

Click to read the first chapter

This is the story of our family’s transition from “town life” to “country life”. As we desired to move toward a more self-sufficient lifestyle with the help of God, we had many new experiences and adventures. Raising children along with learning about caring for cows, chickens, horses, sheep, and a garden were . . . well, humorous! Nonfiction. Paperback. 2nd edition, 2003. ISBN 1-891907-12-3. $8.50 (plus shipping and handling)

"Our Homestead Story: The First Years is such a good book! We laughed until we cried; until we rolled on the floor! The book is the story of one family's journey towards a more self sufficient lifestyle--with the help of God! Read about their hilarious experiences with their chickens!!! and also their many animals--cows, sheep, dogs, racoons!! (not by choice!). Read about soap and candle making, spinning, fixing up an old farmhouse, and much more in this excellent book!" From a review in Future Homemakers, September/October/November 1996 issue, p. 5.

"The Castleberry family found themselves longing for a more self-sufficient lifestyle, and with zero previous experience, undertook the ultimate unit study: they bought a small farm and began learning as they went. . . Steve's sense of humor makes this book shine like a jewel. . . Not one drop of the family's experiences were wasted: even the "failures" like chain-gang Molly the cow were springboards for learning for the Castleberrys. You could read a book like this in order to complement a school study on farm life. Better yet, you could just read it for the pure joy of it. Highly recommended!" From a review in Practical Homeschooling, July/August 1997, p. 68.

“Congratulations, Katie on the publishing of your first book! We love it! It’s been fun to read and learn new ideas from your family.” Wisconsin

“Our daughter was thrilled to receive Katie’s cookbook for her birthday present. Tonight we made the wheat crackers . . . Needless to say they didn’t last very long. Yummy! Thank you for your helpful recipes.” Internet

"We just had to tell you .... I have been looking for YEARS for a new oatmeal-raisin cookie recipe.  I am serious.  I've tried countless recipes & many years ago, had even written down one that was a compilation of several that we thought we liked well enough but I have not been happy with it for a long time.  This week-end, my dear husband asked for some oatmeal-raisin cookies so my daughter Hannah, who got Katie's cookbook, pulled out the book & looked up your recipe.  We tried it and we are almost swooning.... I only made a half recipe (silly for our family of 9, but hated to use all those ingredients if they turned out to be only *OK*) and we all agree that they are the BEST oatmeal-raisin cookies I've ever made!  So thank you, thank you, thank you!" Michigan

paypalClick to read the first chapter

This book was written to encourage Christian mothers to be joyful and consistent in their calling. Many women have told us that they need examples of Christian motherhood, and Call Her Blessed is an attempt to provide such examples. Each chapter centers on a different theme, using stories from the lives of real mothers to help readers grasp truths of how to follow God’s will for their lives in mothering their children. Some of us are “first generation” Christians, and this book has been an encouragement to many in understanding ways they can follow the biblical command for mothers to love their children. Nonfiction. Paperback. October 1998. ISBN 1-891907-08-5. $6.00 (plus shipping and handling).

"Not being raised in a Christian home and being saved after ten years of marriage and four children has caused me to need as many godly examples as I can get. The ‘problem' is I am the oldest and have more children than any mothers I know. Women look to me as an example — they shouldn't do that! . . . My daughters and even my sons need me to be a godly example." Wisconsin

At age 39 and just having my seventh ‘bundle of joy,' I feel quite in the middle. On the one side I am teaching my 16 year old daughter and on the other I'm still trying to learn my role as the submissive, loving wife and mother. All this to say ‘thank-you' for stepping out and printing a book specifically for women." Illinois

"It was the best book you have written so far. I laughed and cried in every chapter. You can't imagine how it encouraged me — it was just what I needed to get me back on track. It helped me say, "Yes! I will pour out my life for my husband and children." Florida

"It had the teaching I am always looking for. Not being raised in a Christian home, I need these stories and examples to learn how to become the wife and mother God wants me to be." Wisconsin
