Hi everyone!

I'm Holden. I'm a homeschooled fourteen-year-old homesteader living with my parents and four siblings on 2.3 acres in Kennewick, Washington, where we seek to grow more and more of our own food every year and advance the Kingdom of God on earth.

I'm here at WA to try and make as much money as I can, which I will then use to start a business big enough to support a family (if my online business here doesn't get that big itself) before I am twenty (Lord willing). My long-term financial goal is too achieve financial independence as soon as possible, which will allow me to fight for my Father in ways that I couldn't if I were struggling with my finances.

I'm currently homesteading with my parents, of course, since I'm just fourteen, but I will soon (ideally before I'm twenty, but ultimately depending on when my Father will allow) purchase my own property, which I intend to be much more than 2.3 acres, where I will grow all my own food for my family.

I am here at WA to get started achieving these goals.

"Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways! You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands, and it shall be well with you." (Psalm 128:1-2)

Great to see how parents start to get independent "farmers" in times where all people go to dity dusty unhealthy crowded towns and look for a job that is not safe or good paid. In real bad times they cannot feed themselves.
To own an acre and a garden is the first step also in the Bible.

God luck here and grow your knowledge and webbusiness with your lovely family.

Thanks, Georg! Sorry it's taken so long to respond (three years). My mom started this with me three years ago when I was eleven but she got overwhelmed and quit. Now, three years later, I've been re-inspired and have taken it up again.

Yes, that is precisely the reason we are out here farming. With the modern food system putting who-knows-what in our food, the only way to stay truly healthy isn't to go on some diet or work out at the gym; it's to grow your food yourself (and we get more exercise doing that then we could ever get at any gym). With such an unstable economy that should have fallen off the cliff years ago, the only measure of safety is to get ourselves off the modern grid. "The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it." (Proverbs 27:12) That's what we're really doing out here.

And yes, we adhere to Proverbs 24:27 which I'm assuming you were referring to: "Prepare your work outside; get everything ready for yourself in the field, and after that build your house."

Fortunately I'll be able to to work on my site here at WA almost every day because my arm's broken! (First time snowboarding two Mondays ago). Otherwise I'd be working outside every moment that I'm not studying (I'm home educated). Thanks!

Ouch, hope your arm recovers soon. Strangely, I also started working online with an arm/hand injury years ago. Today, I am so glad for that injury, helped a lot to keep me in front of the PC.

Like always, please do not hesitate to shout if you have questions, will do my best to help.
