Chelle’s Home Grown Goodness

Welcome to my Blog

Nine months of intense spiritual growth…

In the fall of 2021 I decided to take a class called School of Prophetic Ministry. It was a big committment, but something I felt God was inviting me into. I took it with the understanding that I would learn to hear God better, and begin to grasp more about the...

Commitment…

Several months ago, I started thinking about how we would celebrate our anniversary this year. Typically we just have a nice dinner or something small, but this was celebrating 30 years, so it needed to be grand! Our oldest son asked when the last time was that we...

Pride and Punishment

Why is it that we, as people, often think more about our opinions than we do of our relationships? I see it, over and over again, people damaging or ending relationships over matters of opinion. Just look at our country...during the civil war, brothers fought against...

Sisters…

Growing up, it is so easy to take for granted that God has given us siblings as lifelong friends and companions. They are the only people that will know you for your entire life, and they are supposed to grow old with you. You know each others deepest secrets and...

Fear or Faith…

Or should I title this, "Natural vs. the Supernatural"? Recently my sister received a diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Typically this is a very grim diagnosis, but I am battling in the heavenlies for her with every bit of faith that I possess. Both she and my...

Papa meets us…

God longs to spend time with us and LOVES it when we pray. Today, one of the brothers from church, stayed with me to pray and it is amazing how Papa God met us here. We came with only one written prayer request and ended up praying over a list of 20 or more that God...
