Quiet Ambitions

Simple Homestead Living in a difficult changing world. 

Hi there, welcome to Quiet Ambitions.  My name is Sharon Peterson.

Make it your ambition to live a quiet life, work with your hands, and tend to your own business just as I have commanded you.   1 Thessalonians 4:11

People in this world are living in chaos.  Some of us desire a simpler way of life but knowing how to do that can be overwhelming.  It is hard to get off the hamster wheel! 

Quiet Ambitions is a site to help you create a homemade lifestyle based around simple old fashioned ideals. 

It all started with a dream.  My husband and I dreamed of living a quiet simple life with a small house in the woods including a big shop for him and a little barn for me.  Well the dream is happening!  Come along as we move our little homestead from a western desert where irrigation is a part of life to the eastern woods where God waters the ground!

We are excited to share our experience with what we have, and how things work differently in a different climate.
