Searching for Discovery    (Posted Wed, Nov 21 '12 at 12:44 UTC)

I'm 29 yrs old and I've reached a point in my life where I have some sort of control on what direction it's heading based on the decisions I make right now. Short Background: I am a single mom of a beautiful 10 yr old daughter who has recently moved to Northern California to live with her dad. For the past 10 years my daughter has been my #1 priority. It's been a big adjustment and after gathering my thoughts and organizing my emotions I have come to the light. Going from graduating high school & becoming a mother in less than 1 year, I skipped a big step, passed go and completely missed what everyone should experience at some point in time. Discovery. Discovery of what you want to do with your life. Discovery of who you are and who you want to be as you transition into complete adulthood. Now, after 10 years, by the grace of God I have been given a second chance. It's scary, exciting and mostly liberating at the idea's I have, the places I want to see and the life experiences I want to have. After giving all of this much thought I have come to two major realizations. My first, and mostly yearned for, is to travel. Expand my horizons. Inhale the splendid grandeur of our great country. Second, and more random of the two, is to live and work on a farm. So, I've combined the two and come up with what I hope to be the greatest experience of my life apart from having my daughter of course. I want to travel the beautiful USA while staying at family farms moving state to state. I have no limit on how long I will be in one place. I'm putting that in God's hands. As a matter of fact I'm putting all of this in God's hands. My goal is to stay with good grounded Christian families, who still stand for morals, values and freedom, with family farms that include horses. I am asking for room and board plus a weekly allowance. In return, I am willing to work from sun up to sun down, Monday through Saturday, leaving Sunday's for church. I feel like the best way I can grasp what I'm looking for in myself and out of life is to get down to the roots of what our country was built upon. Hard work, determination and perseverance. I want to grow up from the woman I have been and break through to a stronger, more grounded woman that appreciates life. I want to live. If any part of what you have read has struck a chord in your heart and you would like to be a part of my journey then please contact me. Whether it's for a family member, friend or yourself I would love to hear from you. Until then I look forward to what my future holds.

Malisa- Hopefully I spelled your name correctly. Your ad caught my eye this morning, and my wife and I decided to respond. We run a small CSA in southern Idaho and I am also a general building contractor. In addition I work at a part time job. Every year, we rely on 3 or 4 volunteers in order to make our small food growing business go.

As a family (we have older children), we are christian and do try to live a moral, principled life. We are also into physical fitness and good health. We offer our workers room and board in return for 5 hours a day (M-F, 8-1) of honest hard work. My wife used to be a professional chef so the eating is good. 3 meals per day plus a small travel trailer to live in. We would be happy to run you around town once in a while.

As far as the work goes, you would work in our garden, prune trees, cut and stack firewood, feed and groom our dogs, care for chickens, help propagate trees and plants, and general cleanup. nothing fancy, but like I said before, honest hard work.

We always do a full background check on all of our workers as well as a drug test.

If you are interested please email me at your convenience. Every year, we get a pretty good line of folks willing to trade their work for a place to stay and some good food.
