Hello – we are Paul and Angelia Burrell. We are the parents of six children and grandparents to 5 grandchildren. Our son Jacob is married to his wife, Naomi and they have given us 2 precious granddaughters – Natalie and Nicole. We have 5 incredible daughters – Haley, Amanda, Sarah, Erin and Olivia. Haley is married to Sam and they live in Delta, AL. Haley is the Activities Director at a local nursing home until they begin a family. Our second eldest daughter Amanda is married to Jeremy and she has blessed us with two wonderful grandsons, Evan and Elisha. Elisha has gone on to wait for us in Heaven with the Lord Jesus. Our next daughter is Sarah, has her own sewing business and is a childcare provider for two families, lives here at Shepherds Hill. Daughter Erin is married to Andy and they live in Heflin, AL. Erin and Andy are the parents of little Paul Obadiah who was born in September. Our youngest daughter, Olivia lives here at Shepherds Hill as well and works at a local veternarian as a vet assistant. That comes in very handy when something is needed by the livestock here on our farm.
The entire focus of our lives is to bring honor and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ. Shepherds HIll is the name of our little farm in rural Clay County, Alabama. Our goal has always been to raise our children to be servants of the living God and to bless others as they show Christ’s love. They are all grown now and we are entering a new phase in our lives. It has been an interesting transition but we see very much the ever increasing need for our foucs to remain strong and steady in shining the Light and Love of our Lord in the community and wherever He allows us to be connected.
For many years we have worked to build a functioning farm to preserve traditional crafts and skills for future generations. With every move of technology, skills and talents that have been “common knowledge” for hundreds of years disappear. While God expects us to “put our hand to the plow” and to “occupy until He comes”, we also know that “in due season, we will reap if we faint not”. Angie and I have found that our family has been drawn closer through the work of our farm. As the children grew up understanding responsibility for living things and trusting God for each and every day, they developed a deep faith and knowledge that God is their source and provision and it is through Him and Him alone that this life can bring joy and satisfaction.
Our prayer is that, if you don’t know Jesus as Savior and close personal Friend, you will be brought to Him. If you already know Him, you are part of our family and we’d love to hear from you. Either way, write us! We would love to hear from you.
