About 3 years ago the Kaisers moved from Florida to South Carolina to develop a sustainable, multi-generational farm called Kornerstone Farms. Not only are they raising 7 children with #8 coming soon ;), but they are also raising chickens, goats, pigs, and bunnies. They currently sell pastured chickens, sewn items from recycled & vintage fabrics, organic body products: goat milk soap, salves, and hard lotions. You can check out their blog to see their challenges, triumphs, joys and learning curves. You can also be inspired as they share many creative ideas some of which are displayed in the images below. As I walked through their home I felt as if I were in a Pinterest Store! ***Side note: I so want those Ladies and Gents crates for boots and shoes! Having 6 kids of my own I know how awesome these would be!!! Enjoy!!!
Our family met the Kaisers almost 2 years ago at a homeschool conference and there was an instant connection. The following Sunday they visited our church and since then a sweet friendship has developed! We love hanging out with the Kaisers! They make their home fun and relaxing!!! It is what I call….A Happy Home! 😉 We are so very thankful for this family. Their love for God and desire to raise a God honoring family is an encouragement to many. I recently read this quote from John Piper and thought of the Kaisers.
“The importance of family life in society and church can scarcely be exaggerated. O how crucial in the development of a child’s personhood is the life of his family. And not only little children—but also the lives of husbands and wives are made more or less fruitful by their experience at home. We want a happy home and a family with a purpose and a mission. And my message today is that the lordship of Jesus Christ is the only lasting foundation of such a home. Trusting Christ as Savior, surrendering to him as Lord, and orienting all of your family relations on him, transforms the home into a little heaven on earth. And even if some member of your family is not a believer, there is more grace and power for your love under the lordship of Jesus than anywhere else. He is precious as the foundation of the family….. When the Spirit reigns in your life, you do everything with a view to honoring Jesus. And in that way Jesus becomes the foundation and focus and goal of the family, and life at home is transformed.” – John Piper (Full Article here. Definitely worth the read….Jesus is Precious as the Foundation of your Home)
