Hey there, I’m Lana!
We are all about faith, family and the farm. Most days you can find me teaching business courses in the University classroom or at home at the Grace Filled Homestead. I’m a wife to my fireman husband and mom to 5! We just added a precious daughter in love. We do life on a small farmstead in Kansas City, where we raise mini Nubian goats, babydoll sheep, chickens & bees. We are fixing up our 120 year old farmhouse, one room at a time. I run on God’s grace, strong coffee & lots of KC BBQ. Our life is hectic and messy. As a recovering perfectionist, I have banned the word perfect from my vocabulary. Most days we hold it all together in healthy high performance mode… other days end with cozy PJs at 7pm and my favorite girl, Little Debbie. I call that grace and balance!
Interesting things you may not know about me..
- Used veggie oil was the Stenner car fuel for two years. Oh what a mess and stink. My kids did not like when I would pull up in the school car rider line and the exhaust smelled like french fries. I’ll admit I love my gas station now.
- Marathon running is in my past, but not my future. Amen to that. The long distance running days are slowing down, and now I’d rather go for a long walk, take a relaxing yoga class or even better, sit on the front porch with the fam.
- Is there such a thing as a cheese addict? If so, I’m it, especially if it’s melted cheese. I have never met a cheese I don’t like.
- 50% of my life is spent sitting in bleachers watching kid’s sports.. wrestling, pole vaulting, dance, running, football, soccer… and much more. Hooray for all the moms raising the next generation.
I am honored that you are here. Grab a cup of coffee and head over to our Blog where we chat about all things faith, family and the farm. I’d love to have you join our community through the blog and social media. I can already tell we are going to be great friends!
Blessings to you!
