❤️I'm a teacher of God's word. I knew God was calling me into ministry when I was in High school, but God's timing didn't actually bring me to full time ministry until 20 years later. I have served as co-pastor at Fellowship Church of Granite Bay, CA and at Glory Bound Fellowship in Valley Springs, CA. I am passionately involved in the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief organization. I have been on several relief missions including the Philippines, Oklahoma, Louisiana, California and now right here in Kentucky.
I'm currently on sabbatical and 'work' full time right here on our little farm located in a beautiful little 'heavenly hollow' called Marrowbone, just outside of Burkesville, KY. We still remain close with our extensive family and friends still hanging out in CA.
Julie and I were born and raised in CA, but it sure was easy becoming Kentuckians! This last year in 2022, we were blessed with an amazing grandson and now get to experience this new journey in life as Nanna and Papa.
Our Puppy Helpers!
P.S. Our little helpers are all grown up now!
I love remembering when these 3 were so sweet and little...
❤️Our oldest daughter is an animal lover just like her mom! She is 22 now and currently lives at home. She loves animals and is studying Large Animal & Equine Dentistry.
❤️Our youngest daughter, while she drives her older siblings crazy, is always there to help keep our little fur-babies out of trouble! She has just graduated High School.
❤️Our oldest son is newly married and lives with his sweetheart in Sacramento, CA. They just experienced the birth of their first baby!
- About the Bline Family -
We are new to farm life and we love it!!!
In June of 2021, we were able to purchase our 30 acre dream farm and property in KY.
❤️I'm a wife, mom of three, a retired special education teacher and now I'm currently a part time in-home caregiver for a retired Army Veteran and full time grandma, mom, wife and farm caretaker!
My life is dedicated to family, ministry, kids and animals! In 2015, We moved to Valley Springs from Lincoln, CA, where I spent several years as the Administrator/1st grade teacher of a small private Christian school.
Our most recent call has led us out to our farm in Burkesville, KY. It is such a blessing to be here! My 76 year old father moved out here to live with us for a few months before he passed away; and my favorite moments are when I'm just hanging out on the farm. I love seeing the joy in our fur-babies as they run full speed through our pastureland and as I watch them thrive in the spirit of their freedom since moving out to Kentucky! Even our elderly Dachshund is acting like a teenager.
As a life-long teacher and self-learner, I'm excited to use my education in child develop and build on it to learn more about puppy development and how animals think, learn and grow into their best self, right from the start! It has been a joy to research more about what I can do with our puppies during our 8 weeks, along with our baby goats and baby rabbits.
