How did Oak Hill begin? In 2004 we moved lock-stock-and-barrel from Michigan to Oklahoma - hubby and me, our two youngest children who were then in their young teens, our three dogs and three cats, three goats, and assorted chickens and rabbits. At a gas station somewhere in Missouri, someone asked if we were a traveling petting zoo.
Living at Oak Hill has fulfilled a dream I've carried inside me for so many years while I followed my military-then-pastor husband from one end of the world to another: to put down roots in the country and stay put.
My passion is to encourage your dreams and your homesteading plans with my stories of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life.

A few things about me:
I was a horse-crazy child, and I never really outgrew it. This photo was taken by my dad on my eighth birthday, when my grandparents gave me Fancy. From that point on, I couldn't wait for summer so I could stay with them and ride every day. Nowadays I can't wait for summer so our granddaughter can come stay with us and ride every day.
My father was a professional photographer, so I grew up seeing the world through his eyes. While our tastes in subject matter differed, we both loved taking photos and I always appreciated his suggestions and support. My camera is my almost-constant companion. I use a Nikon D3300 DSLR. Mine came from Best Buy but you can read more information about the camera at Amazon.com (that's an affiliate link. If you make a purchase after clicking on this link or another affiliate link, I'll receive a small commission but it doesn't affect the price you pay in any way).
A few things about our animals:
Ella is my beloved Quarter Horse. (Hubby likes to ask jokingly "what happened to the other three-quarters?") Splash is our granddaughter's paint.
I raise Nubian goats, and use their milk to make goat milk soap, cheese, ice cream and more. We also have an assortment of chickens, some Muscovy ducks, and plenty of dogs and cats. You can read all about their adventures in the barnyard.
