Quote of the Week

 “The saving of souls, if a man has once gained love to perishing sinners and his blessed Master, will be an all-absorbing passion to him.  It will so carry him away, that he will almost forget himself in the saving of others.  He will be like the brave fireman, who cares not for the scorch or the heat, so that he may rescue the poor creature on whom true humanity has set his heart.”

~Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Farmgirl Favorites


  While at the Mally’s bookstore, we were blessed with this wonderful CD!  We already like the Wissmann family’s singing, but this one is our favorite!!!  You can order one HERE.

Cute Quotes

Isaiah:  “I’m just going to talk Noah something.” (tell him something)

       Noah told Leah: “Daddy likes deer because he shoots them.”  After thinking a little bit he added, “Or he tries to, but he never catched any.”  He is too little to remember the times that Daddy did “catch” a deer!

     Awhile ago, Bekah and Charissa were telling Leah what she could give them for Christmas.  They were both trying to get in as many things as possible before the other one butted in.  Once while Bekah was talking Charissa started to interupt, and Bekah said, “Wait!  I’m speeching!”


Note: The Seven Sisters Treasures is a weekly post where we share some of our favorite things.  We try to post  a new one every Friday.  Hope you enjoy!  ~The Farmgirls

    Great Post! I love the picture and quotes!

    Hey Jessica? Were you actually reading the book "King's Arrow" in the picture in the post below? I love that series from Vision Forum. All of the Douglass Bond books are excellent! (Perhaps written for a younger audience… but I don't care, the plots and writing style are amazing!)

    God bless you all!
