Hannah Walker's Wild Edibles

Hannah WalkerHi! My name is Hannah Walker. I live in South Carolina and was actually born and raised here. To be more precise, I live in Charleston, the oldest city of South Carolina. I love the warm weather and its subtropical beaches. It’s the perfect place for me to live. The 60 miles of beautiful beachfront is ideal if you like to play golf, which I really dislike the sport by the way, but some do enjoying it. While others like to come to South Carolina to visit Myrtle Beach, the "vacation town" as most would call it.

I love to walk on the cobblestone streets when I need inspiration to write. Yes, I am a writer. I have been writing for most of my life. It’s my biggest passion.

What do I write about you may ask? Well, I give beauty tips to young ladies on the internet via various websites. I also write for a "cooking" website where I mostly give out my favorite and best recipes for deserts and comfort food. Lastly, I write here, on this website because another one of my interests and past times is learning how to live a self-sustaining lifestyle. I love farming, gardening and hunting. Yes, I know. Not many women enjoy hunting. I am just one of a kind I guess.

When I’m not writing, I am shopping at our local farm market and if I am not doing that, I am running around in the fields, picking berries and wild vegetables so that I can be a better homemaker. To me, homemaking is like my career. Actually, come to think of it, it IS my career. I am a full time wife and mother working hard to make God happy and pleased with me. I learn every day about what it truly means to be a divine homemaker.

The Excellent wife of the Proverbs is a wonderful example to me:

An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels…She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands…She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and portions for her maidens. She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard. She dresses herself with strength and makes her arms strong. She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out at night. She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle. She opens her hand to the poor andreaches out her hands to the needy. ~ Proverbs 31:10-20

My husband, Stan, was born and raised in Charleston. We met when we were in our first year of college and haven’t left each other ever since. He is such a wonderful husband. I can even go so much as to say that he’s probably the best husband in the world but then again, don’t we all think like that of our husbands, ladies?

He is a farmer. He works for one of our local farms that cultivate strawberries. Actually, he organizes the many annual Strawberry Festivals for his employer.

Anyways, he is what you would call a “prepper”’. He truly believes that a catastrophic disaster is bound to happen one day and he is really making sure that he/we, are properly prepared for it. He too, just as I, takes self-reliance seriously. He, along with approximately 3 million other people take self-reliance as seriously as we do. That’s only 1% of the population however.  Slowly but surely, I believe that that number will be increasing every year.

He doesn’t believe in our government nor does he believe that America is a Christian Nation. He keeps on referring to the text in the constitution and the fact that it contains no reference to God whatsoever. But that is an entire subject within itself.

I am a the mother of 3 beautiful children, Jay, he’s my oldest at 20, then there is  Rozy, she’s  17  and last but not least, Melissa, my baby, she came a little later on, she’s 7.

My children are my pride and joy. I am so appreciative of being their mother. I don’t have one bad thing to say about any of them! Yes, that is true because I know that sometimes, some of us have a tendency to complain about our children, about all of the stress that they put us through etc.… well, not to brag or anything but it’s almost like God sent me 3 wonderful guardian angels.

Jay is studying to be a lawyer. It’s funny. Ever since he was a little boy, he knew that he wanted to be a lawyer. This is his first year and he seems to love it so far.

Rozy, she’s a senior in high school. When I look at her, I get the goose bumps. That is how beautiful she is. The thing is, she’s not only beautiful on the outside but she’s also beautiful on the inside. She loves to volunteer for our local charity that has been working very hard to relieve hunger in our community. I am so very proud of who she is becoming.

My baby, Melissa, well, what can I say about her?  She was a huge surprise, but a wonderful one at that! I home school her. She follows me all over the place. She asks questions all of the time. She is very curious and wants to know everything and I love that about her. In my opinion, it’s a sign of intelligence. Then again, we all think that our children are intelligent, don’t we?

I can’t finish this article without mentioning how important God is to me. He is the love of my life, my light, my guidance and my energy. He understands everything about everybody. I love him more than anything. He is always there for me, he believes in me and protects my family every day from disease and evil. Isn’t it beautiful and wonderful to have someone like God to watch over us and give us confidence and faith? He lets me be the person that I am and he always forgives me when I do something wrong… which is not too often! Ok, now I am starting to brag! That means that it is time for me to sign off. I am happy to be here and really excited about what’s next!
