The Milkmaid

“The Milkmaid” oil on canvas by Vermeer

Hi! I’m a 25 year old Christian young woman – when I was six years old I surrendered my life to my precious Lord and Savior and I’ve been following wherever He leads me ever since!

Aside from small scale farming my interests include: reading, drawing, journaling, embroidery, crochet, cross-stitch, baking, hiking, gardening, herbal remedies, self-sufficient living, NRA (National Rifle Association), and homeschooling (future kids of course :P).

Playing piano is one of my passions. I have been playing for 18 years now. To name a few of my favorite pieces: “When Morning Gilds the Skies combined with Edvard Grieg’s Morning from Classical Reflections on Timeless Hymns; “Michael Meets Mozart” by the Piano Guys; “Raindrop Prelude” by Chopin, and “Eternal” by William Joseph.

I also am the organist for a local church. The congregation is small but the people are wonderful – I love them all. Learning the organ has been a challenge in itself but I am slowly mastering this glorious instrument. Mozart was truly inspired when he called the organ the “king of all instruments”.

One of my dreams is to get married and have my own home and kids. But I haven’t met the right guy yet so I’ll keep prayin’ and waitin’. Maybe someday…

So there’s a little background on me. Hope you enjoy this blog and feel free to ask questions!

  1. I’m not a blogger, but I am curious about something. How much cream does a Jersey cow produce in one milking?

    • How much cream in one milking? Well, that depends. For my Jersey, over the summer when she was on fresh, green pasture, she averaged 3 inches of cream to each gallon, milking 2 gallons a day. But now there’s only about 1/2 – 1 inch worth of cream on my milk.

  2. Ah okay, I always wondered so I thought I’d ask. Oh sorry for the typo on my last name. It’s SMITH not snith.

    • Hi Christopher,

      I just have this blog. 🙂 I don’t always post often, but I do try to integrate my Christian faith and worldview into my posts when the opportunity allows because I want to share the reason for the hope that is within me. (1 Peter 3:15) And my hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. “For God so loved the world that He sent his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17). Thanks for commenting! And if you’ve got any questions, maybe I can help answer them. 🙂
