“On Our Own”  

                           ….Independence, not dependence!

Hey guys, jnull0 here.  I am the Father of four children, and a Husband to a handicapped wife.  We live in Southern Ohio in Northern Appalachia.  We are looking for a more self sufficient life that is free from excessive grocery and energy bills.  We are on a very limited income, and look to ourselves before we look to others for everyday items.  We grow a large garden, and raise animals to supplement our food supply, and we try to preserve and store as much as we can for when life throws trying times at us. 

  We have a rule everyone in our family, takes care of everyone in our family, and work together to keep our homestead going.  We also depend on our faith to keep us going in times of hardships and trials.  We have a very simple lifestyle, and I always try to keep a sense of humor about life in general, I believe laughter is good for the soul.

  I will be adding to this area of the website as we go on our internet journey to try to bring more folks together, and share our progress, and learn from people who want to share their knowledge and experiences.  If you would like to learn more about my family's life in the hills, please check out our YouTube channel.

  Thanks for stopping by, and God bless,
