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.

My Ben friend is also a frequent feature here ☺️

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. The twins Uriah and Isaiah bring lots of joy to all of us.

Emily is involved with the crop farming and volunteers day and night with our local Fire and Rescue. Chicken Houses also take a lot of her time. And River Muckalee (The yellow lab) demands some mention.

Deborah- the baby of the family (she loves this title) married Nate from CO. Alexander is a little ray of sunshine.

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

  1. Raleigh D. Rhodes III here, Thanks for your blog. My brother James and I are trying to find out a little more info on William Perry Rhodes. We have vital statistics but that is about it. It does mention in one of your posts that somebody wrote some notes about the his funeral. I think it was a joint funeral at Pleasant View since both Reuben and William died hours apart. Any further info would be appreciated. Thanks

    • Hi- we have the newspaper clippings about his passing that we found in the RSR family Bible- I don’t know if that’s helpful or not, but you’re welcome to come take a look at it. My number is 5405785275
