I Met My Goal Of Blogging Over 100 Times In 2013!

YAY!!!  Cue the windows winning solitaire fireworks!  

I set a goal in the beginning of 2013 to blog over 100 times in 2013 and I did it!  

I didn't reach all of my goals for 2013, but I definitely feel like I made progress.  2014 is going to be an even better year.  

I've got a blog surprise for you in the New Year, be looking for it!  

Have an amazing and productive 2014!!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!  Here's a video from Mighty Mo Coffee, which one of my friends just started up.  I love how worshipful it gets when the singer starts singing "oh night divine."  

Thank you Jesus for coming to the earth as fragile baby, to save us from and pay for the sins of the world.  That our lives would be lived in honor of You.  

Merry Christmas :)  

Are you having an awesome Christmas?  What's the highlight?  Let us know in the comments.

Saturday Morning Quick Update

Hey everyone, Christmas break is here!  The campus is clearing out, we've sent our Fall schools overseas.  And the majority of our staff have returned home for the holidays.  

I'm up on a saturday morning early, about to work on some photo edits and hopefully get our new photography webpage up today.  

My parents come on Tuesday to visit for a few weeks to celebrate Christmas!  

How is your Saturday going?  Ready for the Holidays?

Want To Improve Your Writing? Follow This One Step

In first grade I wrote a book.  It was bound by wall paper covered cardboard and was titled "The Boy Who Was Never Scared."  I got a lot of praise from it and that's when I decided I wanted to be an author.

December Garden Update! [VIDEO]

IMG 2799 from Jim and Jess Baker on Vimeo.

Hey everyone!  Here's my December garden update video!  I shot it on my new ipod touch, let me know if you think the video quality is better.  And I apologize for blanking out on some of it, I shot this before I had any coffee.  :)  I'm including below what I forgot.  

0:57 - The One Straw Revolution - Masanobu Fukuoka
(I came outside yesterday to do Laundry after doing this video and saw a bird hovering near some of the greens, so I think he was eating some of those pests!)
1:27 - I tried again to get some seeds out of there later in the day and it did work!  I threw them in one of the grow beds to see if they will grow! 
3:45 - Dahlia
4:04 - My moringa is now completely gone, just a stem :(  
4:16 - Tumeric
