Two Years In The Making Of Our Farm


Thank you for supporting our blog and our farm!

My husband of twenty-three years and I made a life change after the semi-truck accident left me with a life-long physical disability Select GOD CREATED A MIRACLE FOR ME to read all about it. My physical therapy is our farm now in lieu of a gym as I must keep moving in order to stay out of a wheel chair. 20150301_140938

August of 2013 my hubby and I purchased twenty acres in Sequim, WA with nothing on it.  We have owned our land for two years now, thank you Jesus!

Living in a small space is extremely wonderful in so many ways, takes five minutes when we clean together including the toilet. :) We are enjoying our life 100%, squeezing everything out of it that we can.


Life is short and precious and we never know when our time is up.  Any form of trauma will change each person and relationship forever. Before the semi-truck accident I was athletic, physically active and now I still do my best to stay active but my body wears out with pain. My feet continue to go numb, rib spasms still occur and back and hip pain is non-stop. Pain is something I have learned to live with and I balance this pain with the enjoyment of my husband and all the animals on the farm.

I pray that my transparent life story helps you enjoy your life. Never give up and trust Jesus Christ for all things. I am nothing without GOD. Please understand I did not believe in GOD until I was in my forties. After I accepted Jesus into my life I have never been the same. GOD truly loves each and every one of his children. I pray you find the peace, joy and happiness in life that only you can find. Each of us has a purpose. Each of us was created to share, and love one another. I pray for peace for each and every one of you along with health and laughter.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged! Melody & Scott Johnson

Having faith in Jesus Christ is number one when working on our dream of the creation of the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC.  Without GOD in our life this would be impossible!

My Best Friend Is My Hubby Scott Of Almost 23 Years!


best friend

I love you Scott!



GOD has a plan, he takes one extrovert with big dreams and one introvert and mixes this together to make Mr. and Mrs. Scott Johnson. Thank you Scott! Thank you for making all my dreams come true. Thank you for not letting me lay in sorrow after the semi-truck accident and cry, thank you for not selling my horse and donkeys.  Thank you for giving me four more donkeys and another horse.  Thank you for stepping out of the city life into the life of a farmer. Thank you for living in this tiny 5th wheel with me so we can build our last home.

You are truly a farm man now! Thank you for not turning me in for a younger healthy model after the semi-truck accident, you stuck with me and help me live with the pain every day.  Most men would have walked away but not you, you stood by my side day after day and still when I cry from pain you hold my hand and tell me you love me. I am so much in love with you, more than words can describe.

I love you so much and I want you to always remember that the best thing that ever happened to me in this world is you! You are my best friend, my lover, my husband and my partner in this thing called life. I am forever grateful for every minute, hour and day we have together. We never know when our time is up, so we cherish the moments we get! You always make me laugh when I want to cry, you always tell me things will get better. You are truly an inspiration to me and you Scott Johnson are the man of my dreams. You are my Rock and I pray I am for you what you are for me.

This is my love letter to you in public! I know we are private but today I needed to say thank you, I love you to the entire world. As the last year has been difficult but great things are ahead. We started a new business together Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC and soon GOD will provide the resources to start growing low sugar/protein hay on our farm. THANK YOU JESUS CHRIST!

We are now fifty-five and going stronger every day!


GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

How About Them CowGirls, GOD in Jesus Christ Name Is Amazing

GOD is amazing! I am very grateful to GOD in Jesus Christ name and my husband Scott. I am a survivor of a semi-truck accident leaving me with a life long physical disability. I will never give up! Please no matter what you are suffering with trust Jesus to help you as he has me and my family two and four-legged.

Life is never easy, never but if we let go and dance with Jesus it is more than we could even dream. I am excited to share that my dream of owning my business Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC is in place. This business is new and a baby but just wait and watch what GOD is going to do next.

Soon we will be selling mini, standard and Mammoth rope haters, lead lines, brass snaps made from yacht rope and each handmade in the USA along with handmade training tools. One regular size and one mini donkey size. Soon we will sell our home in Kingston, WA and begin to build our new home.

Living in the 5th wheel has been humbling and exciting as hubby Scott and I get to go play less house work. Never give up! If you have a dream, pray and take a chance, life is short and fragile. My pain is managed but nerve pain never ends, back pain never ends and yet I refuse to give up.

I pray my real life story inspires you. What you may think is the end of the world may be a new beginning, when GOD shuts a door he always opens a better one.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Melody Johnson, owner of Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC

Prayer For Emotional Healing

I pray that this blog post brings you energy, strength and a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. Without GOD I am nothing and I can do nothing. GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged! Melody

The bible is clear stating GOD listens to our prayers and he releases the angels to go to work the minute one of his children cry out for help.


Are not the angels all ministering spirits (servants) sent out in the service of GOD for the assistance of those who are to inherit salvation.  HEBREWS 1:14
