I live alone with my preschooler in an off-grid cabin on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia.

Making room friday sept.09 2011
I have found myself five weeks pregnant and alone. At twelve weeks pregnancy on the eve of all of my earthly belongings sitting in a moving van outside my fence under the watchful eye of the starlit night sky I have decided to remove the roof, add another floor and put on a new roof. I am in no way a carpenter and have never done anything on this scale. Infact the chicken coop I started remains unfinished. I am doing this out of faith and necessity. Necessity because my tiny cabin is not enough room for a crib or for the baby to have its own room. I am doing it out of faith that as I proceed the solutions will come on there own. I believe in God that if I begin He will provide. Due to my physical condition and the deteriorating weather and that friends have graciously lent me the use of there cabin I am feeling pressure on myself to get it done.
