Hello All!

My name is Dawn Heck and I am a 41 year old working mother of 3 (2 boys and 1 girl).  I am also the wife of the very hard working and very loving husband and father, Harley Heck.  We live just outside of a tiny town on the beautiful open plains of Colorado. We have a little piece of land where my husband and I have a hobby farm with his parents and his brother.  We have cows, chickens, pigs and goats.  It’s not a large operation but it is a grand adventure I thought I would never be able to pursue.

Why 226mommy?

226 Mommy is based off of the scripture Proverbs 22:6 ” Start children off on the way they should go, and when they are old they will not turn from it.”  Now for me this holds a very special place both practically and faith wise.  I am a Christian and proud of it.  I know that the Lord is there with me daily and the peace and joy I get from that cannot be measured.  However, if you believe in God or not I feel like the words of Proverbs 22:6 apply to anyone.  If we raise our kids to be loving, faithful, caring, compassionate and with a boat load of integrity then we can have hope for the future knowing we have taught our children to be better people than we are and maybe they will teach their children to be better than them.

So I hope you tune in and check in frequently.   I will write about parenting, mom and faith issues.  I will share some crafty things that non-crafty moms like me can do and of course some food stuff too.  Don’t worry I will also share some fun stuff about our property and the animals that live here as well.

Love y’all.
