t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


God Gave Me a Body and My Agency

God gave me two presents when I came to earth to live with my family. He gave me my body and my agency.

Click on the video above for more from Ellery's talk she gave at church. She did a beautiful job. With confidence and conviction she testified of the simple and profound truths of God's great plan of happiness for us.

I especially enjoy the reference to "my dog Brimmy." Good ole Brim. Thanks Grandma for being so generous in loaning us your dog.
