Our Family

Hi- I’m Kendra, the rambling writer of this “blog smog” (lovingly nicknamed by my family) I’m suddenly an only child as the rest of my sisters spread their wings and enjoy a variety of adventures.

I love to travel. My gypsy tendency is well cared for by my part time job as long distance vandriver for the horse and buggy people in our area.

I  also spend a far amount of time involved with our family farm. We are crop farmers and also do some custom farming.

Meet the rest of Horst family:

We grew up on a dairy farm at the foot of Paradise Mtn in VA… and even though my parents and I aren’t on the dairy anymore, we managed to live on a farm just a bit north at the foot of the same beloved “Paradise Mountain”

Eldon and Joyce: the parents whose interests range from trucks to quilts.. (And guess whose interest is who’s -lol)

And my sisters:

Julia married Sherman. They run the home dairy (and their German Shepherd thought she needed to be included in the family photo) Julia always has a project on the go, and Sherm stays super busy with church league sports.

Emily married Kerry. KJ is a roofer by trade and Em leads a life of variety, She’s involved with the crop farming and volunteers day and night with our local Fire and Rescue, Chicken Houses always take a lot of their time. And River Muckalee (Their yellow lab) demands some mention.

Deborah- the baby of the family (she loves this title) married Nate from CO. They live at the foot of Mole Hill, and enjoy a leisure hike with their dog Pagosa upon occasion. (Are you getting the pic that our fam is fairly canine crazy?) Nate works for the same roofing company as KJ, and Deb milks for 2 local dairies, and helps with harvest.

The most important thing about our family is that we love the Lord and are excited to see how He is directing our lives…

Thanks for stopping by and joining us as we embrace the journey.. Sometimes with humor, sometimes pensively..

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee,
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not,
As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above;
Join with all nature in manifold witness,
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love
