First Post!

Hi everyone, and welcome to The Many Adventures of the Homemaking Intern

My name is Shannon, and I am a book wormy, Pride and Prejudice loving, knitting, football watching, baking like crazy, compulsively crafting, head in the clouds gal who has a strong desire to learn and live life to the fullest. 

I am a homeschool graduate, 
studying web design and herbalism at home

and learning under my sweet Mom 


I didn't have time to learn during my high school years...and believe me, there wasn't a ton of time between trying to get through that mountain of school...=) 

From honing in my cooking skills, 
gardening our third acre hobby farm, 
and taking care of chickens

 to baking keifer bread, sewing, and learning herbalism together, 
Mom and I are going to be covering it all and have fun while doing it! 

This blog is going to be a journalism of my journey of learning those skills and so many more that go along with the best, 
 and most important  
career there ever was, is, and ever will be: 

being a Homemaker.

My Mom is the best example God could have given me , and I am so thankful and excited to get to learn under her during these years at home! 
Also, I am excited to get to share my journey with you all! =D

So please hop on in, follow, and get ready for the many adventure this homemaking intern is going to have.

With love,


  1. I look forward to reading your posts. My daughter is 16 and I am really enjoying passing down my homemaking skills to her :0 Visiting from Raising Homemakers Link Up. ~April

  2. Hi Shannon, I know your Mom from Homesteadheaven list. You are in good hands! I learned many things from my Mom that I still use to this day. Stay sweet and keep up the good work!

  3. Hello Shannon, thank you so much for coming and becoming a follower of Prairie Flower Farm..........your first post was so touching and was a breathe of fresh air to read the honor your Momma!!!! I also have 2 daughters at home.....both homeschooled and now we all work together at a Christian College in the bakery. Been a little different for us to leave our farm but my husband also works in the kitchen. Grill Guy the boys call him. He has been a blessing to the guys for sure. God is using us, but stretching us also. We get home at 2:15 so that has been nice.

    Just a little about nice to get to know you better.
    Blessings, Linda

  8. Hi Shannon,
    Sounds like you are off on a great journey!!
    I look forward to keeping up with your adventures in homemaking.

  9. Love your blog Shannon! You are embarking on a great journey - and God will bless you for it. We are training now to be the homemakers of tomorrow - we are learning to be the future mothers who make bread with smilie faces cut into the top, who don't mind peanut butter kisses from our toddlers, who can truly manage a home, and who will stop smack dab in the middle of math to go outside in the garden and check out the cool caterpillars on the green beans. I congratulate you my fellow homemaking intern!

    Soli Deo Gloria!
