About The Welcoming House

I am a canning, cooking, crafty, crunchy, fun-loving mamma and wife who moved from the Rocky Mountains to the Midwest prairie about 18 years ago. I love being a mom to my three beautiful daughters, and life-long companion to my darling handy Hubby . I blog over at The Welcoming House five days a week on a million different things from recipes to mini-series, to crazy picture days of what is happening around me! I hope you drop in, and never leave there without being encouraged and strengthened in your daily walk. Grab a cup of coffee and come visit us!
Many Blessings to You and Yours!

Grain Mill Wagon Challenge Experience: What fun this has been, doing the Grain Mill Challenge. I was not sure I would ever like using the WonderMill as much as I did my NutriMill, but I tell you what, I have fallen in love with it, and it has now replaced my Nutrimill as the go-to appliance for grinding everything I did before! I enjoyed coming up with 5 original recipes for the Grain Mill Wagon challenge, and my family loved sampling each and every one. I want to thank the Grain Mill Wagon, and WonderMill for giving me the opportunity to participate, and for the dear friend who suggested checking it out in the very beginning. My readers from The Welcoming House Blog have been amazing too, heading over here all the time, sharing, liking, and pinning my recipes because they love me, and the fun desserts I came up with. I wish you all the best, thanks for reading, and many blessings to you and yours! ~Heather Estey @ The Welcoming House Blog
