I’m Beth Cranford; child of God and mother of two (Lydia and Josiah). I was raised in Maine by loving parents along side two brothers and two sisters. My biggest claim to fame and my highest source of joy and peace is that I am a daughter of the king! A princess, purchased with the blood of Christ.

It is my hope that my  life will bring honor to my parents and siblings, a legacy to my children, joy and comfort to my friends and those I’m called to serve, and glory to God. 

Along with learning new things, I enjoy…


Laughing in the kitchen with my kids

Sharing deep conversation with my daughter

Visiting with friends


                                                                                                Driving my truck, listening to good music

Watching my daughter dance

 Hearing my son laugh (and sing, but don’t tell him.)

fall… all things fall!



the sites, smells, and music of early America


helping people

organizing and planning things

worshipping with the body of Christ



I’ve never been technically inclined, and I just recently fell into writing, kind of by accident. This website is a bit of a surprise even to me. (And it wouldn’t be possible without my wonderfully talented husband.) But in a way it’s the realization of a dream that has been forming in me for many years. I hope you will find encouragement and helpful advice here, not only from me but from the wonderful people whose articles and other products you’ll find here.
