And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. Deuteronomy 6:5
We are the Daniel Mielke family. We live in Central Wisconsin.

We are a family dedicated to making changes in our lives to bring us closer to a Christ centered life where the word of God is our complete guide. We have learned to abandon most of our preconceived religious doctrines and have submitted to a Lord who has supplied us with much to be grateful for. We own 75 acres of land and a 5 bedroom home which we built from scratch. God has truly blessed us in that we have done this with out any debt or savings. We were able to accomplish this in less than four years from the time we began to let God lead in that endeavor. For income we grow certified organic produce, sheep and eggs. My son and I work in the Arboriculture field as climbing arborists. Adam has worked full time by my side since he was 7 years of age. My daughters and son also have developed a business selling equipment for and teaching the fiber arts. They are all quite adept in spinning, weaving, knitting and crocheting. They sell spinning wheels looms, books and supplies for the fiber arts business ( Their website can be found at www.mielkesfiberarts.com ). Adam, my son creates hand turned items of wood which are used in the fiber arts business and now has a number of items being being sold by other major suppliers. As our children are now becoming adults and our lives are once again changing Robin and I have become Assessors for the State of Wisconsin which gives us an opportunity to earn a living while also allowing us to get to know many of the families who live in the communities we work.
We worship with another family who live some 45 miles away. We do not have conventional church buildings so our worship is conducted in our home. Many people think we are Amish or Mennonite. But this is not the case. Although we have some similarities which confuse people, many of our beliefs are vastly different from those two groups. To help you better understand our beliefs and why we do what we do, we have supplied a web page dedicated to our beliefs and practices. Feel free to go there if you are interested.
