Welcome to The King’s Little Red Homestead!

Here you’ll get to see our family living life. Growing our garden and building our homestead, the antics of our many animals, and the adventures along the way. We’ll share many of our favorite things. Cooking, baking, music, old movies, and inspiring quotes just to name a few. We’ll also mention several helpful finds. Such as canning supplies we can’t do without, clothes, and products we love. You’ll also be able to see the strong undercurrent of faith in Jesus Christ.  And how we’re learning to recognize and acknowledge His hand in our lives, see the blessings He provides, and how we’re trying to glorify Him in our daily lives. 

“When you eat the labor of your hands, you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.”
~Psalm 128:2
