Congratulations to Jessi and Luke who were blessed, yesterday, with their fourth child.  He is beautiful with a full head of hair, a little less than his momma who came in to this world with hair long enough to need cutting.  Shawn Kelly Dougherty, 8 pounds 1 ounce and 21 inches long, named after his grandfather, Shawn and great-grandfather Kelly.  May God continue to bless Luke, Jessica and their children in many ways.

Little Shawn Dougherty just several hours old!

Francesca and Peter also welcomed a new baby to their family on July 3.  They had a beautiful baby girl Josie June Ryland.  She weighed in at 6 pounds 11 ounces.   What a little sweetheart she is.  Thanks be to God for safe births and healthy babies.  She was already baptized last weekend.

When two people fall in love a whole new world is opened up.  Fred asked me to marry him just 24 hours after having met him.  I said yes, of course, and now it’s so much fun seeing the fruits of our marriage.  Not to mention the grandchildren born into loving families.

If you are married or about to be married I hope you will consider being open to life.  If you are a parent or grandparent, you can encourage young couples to be open.  Just being open doesn’t necessarily mean you will have a large family.  There may not even be any children but at least you will know that you have been open to God’s will.

Looking forward to little Shawn’s baptism some time soon !

About Callens Honey Farm

We live on a small family farm located in S.W. Minnesota, near the South Dakota border. The source of our honey is from white and red clover. The honey appears as liquid gold in color. Our honey is extracted using a hand cranked centrifugal force extractor. Then the honey is screened once into a holding container from which we later fill the small honey bottles. We do not heat treat the honey nor add any other ingredients. Pure and natural is our Minnesota honey! What could taste better?
