About Us

We are Matthew & Susan, married 20-somethings with two kids, two cats and two (rapidly growing) puppies.

I (Susan) will do most of the posting, but Matthew will contribute as time permits.

We are excited to begin this adventure in homesteading. Matthew grew up in a large city, while I grew up in small towns and rural communities. This experience will be new to both of us, but we are looking forward to learning new (to us) skills and rediscovering a simpler way of life.

The name of our blog comes from the fact that our property sits just down-river from a large glacier. We felt it was a fitting name.

We are both Christians, so our faith will be a large part of this blog. While we are looking for what most people would decribe as a "self-sufficient" lifestyle, we recognize that we are completely dependant on God and His providence, not our own effort.

Matthew 6:26 (NKJV)

"Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?"
