I’m Kelly and I’m glad you’re here. I’m a wife and mom, just like you. I get it. I know how hard the days can be, and how you might feel like you’re spinning your wheels or that no one sees or appreciates your work.
You have just found an oasis!
I believe so much in the importance of motherhood and family, that I’ve written here for 10 years about it. What you need is some encouragement and a reminder that you aren’t just cleaning a house and feeding hungry people.
You are building the next generation and that’s no small thing!
We are a very normal family (who happens to have 11 kids) with ups and downs, tears and laughter. Most days are busy wonderful, others, not so much, but all of them a gift of grace by Him who delights in giving good gifts to His children.
We believe the Lord wants to raise up strong families in the face of discouraging times…families who will bring Him glory.
Why the name “Generation Cedar”? “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” Psalm 92:12 Every generation is known and named for something. We’ve got the “Baby Boomer” Generation, Generation X, Y and Z. Generation Cedar is so named because we desire to encourage families to raise the next generation for the glory of God–firmly planted and flourishing “like a cedar in Lebanon.”
My prayer is that you will find a refuge here; we have a strong community of like-minded friends and we would love for you to join us!

The Day Our World Turned Upside Down
If you’d like, you can follow our “journey through the storm”, our family’s story of losing all our earthly possessions in 2011, when an F-5 tornado completely devastated our community, leveling our farm, house, vehicles, trees as well as my childhood home where my parents lived next door. I will continue to tell of God’s faithfulness and pray it is a tremendous encouragement to others!
