Publisher's Description

     
     Imagine raising six spirited kids on an Oregon grass farm. That's enough to test anyone's mettle. Unbowed, author Dorcas Smucker celebrates her family life with gentle humor and disarming humility in this collection of personal essays.

     
     Imagine raising six spirited kids on a grass farm. Today. That'll test any mama's strength. Dorcas Smucker and her brood live out their days in full view in this collection of musings—picking blueberries while watching for bears, hoping for angels driving off the nearby freeway, moving into the "thousand-story house." Then there was the four-week road trip, which, Dorcas says, "My sister-in-law warned me would be like putting your whole family in the bathroom and staying there for three days." 
     
     There are no recipes here. But there is story upon story. Dorcas has three daughters and three sons. And she has a voice—encouraging, doubting, entertaining, but never taking herself too seriously. Often slightly off-stride, and with disarming humility, Dorcas keeps finding resource in her life at home.

Author Bio

     
     Dorcas Smucker, a mother of six and a Mennonite minister’s wife, lives in a 95-year-old farmhouse near Harrisburg, Oregon. In addition to her normal responsibilities of pulling splinters, settling arguments, and mopping floors, she writes a column, “Letter from Harrisburg,” for the Eugene, Oregon, Register-Guard. She also speaks to various groups, which she enjoys because everyone listens and no one interrupts. Her interests and hobbies include reading, crafts, sewing, travel, and exploring the Internet. She is the author of Upstairs the Peasants Are Revolting and Ordinary Days: Family Life in a Farmhouse, both published by Good Books.
