Faith, Farming, and Family with Caitlin Henderson
Many of us dream of what it would be like to live on a farm. It seems so idyllic, yet in reality, we know it’s a lot of work, too. I was thrilled to get the inside scoop from today’s guest Caitlin Henderson. We talk about Faith, Farming, and Family … which is actually the title of her book!
Caitlin is a wife and mom living on a grain and cattle farm in Kansas. She didn’t grow up on a farm, but she married a farmer and was quickly thrown into that way of life. On the podcast, Caitlin shares stories from her life on the farm (often wild stories!). But more importantly, she relates how God has met her in her weaknesses time and time again. On this podcast, Caitlin invites listeners to recognize God’s beauty right in front of them. This podcast is a true delight!

About the Book:
A young farmer’s wife draws on her life with kids, cows, and a front-porch view to help us see God’s goodness and beauty wherever we are, reminding us that the simple life is not a place to be but a way to be.
“Grab a cup of coffee and join Caitlin on her porch to hear the lessons God has taught her through the good and hard of everyday life.”—Vivian Mabuni, speaker and author of Open Hands, Willing Heart: Discover the Joy of Saying Yes to God
When Caitlin, a small-town girl, fell in love with a farm boy named Jake Henderson, she had little idea what farm life—or marriage and motherhood—would bring. But raising a family on a farm is teaching her more about God’s goodness and grace than she could have imagined.
Faith, Farming, and Family is a rich, story-filled walkthrough farmhouse hallways, harvest-ready fields, and God’s bountiful dreams for our lives. As Caitlin reflects on everything from wayward tractors to watching a marriage grow from surviving to flourishing, she reminds us to see the redemption in our own stories.
Join Caitlin in exploring biblical truth through the eyes of a farmer’s wife, whether you are wrangling kids onto a school bus, sowing creative seeds in a business meeting, or walking the pastures of your own family farm. Faith, Farming, and Family invites us to recognize God’s beauty right in front of us so that we might find the courage to take the next step—or the first step—into His incredible calling.
