Wholy Thoughts



Looking back over 25 years of Wholy Living, it’s a blessed experience serving my wonderful customers! I thank the Lord for the privilege of serving and helping so many families! I purchased my first Bosch from a lady at my son’s preschool back in the summer of 1987. Even tho it is changed a bit, Bosch is still THE BEST bread maker on the market. Then in 1993, I met a man from Homer at the State Fair. He needed someone to distribute Wheat Montana Farms grains in this area. With my husbands approval, Wholy Living was born. Many things have not changed, but in some ways, Wholy Living has ‘evolved’ into a better business … 

  • Improved nutrition & flavor by soaking & dehydrating seeds, nuts, beans & of course our grains! God brought along just the right people at the right time to instruct us, teaching us so much more about nutrition. i also learn something new at every class from my attendees.  That makes the best bread around. One happy Hubby with a happy Belly exclaimed, “this is Heavenly Bread!”

  • Expanded product selection. What started with a ‘dozen-grains’ price list, now boasts a serious assortment of oils, sweeteners, fruits, nuts, seeds, beans, flavorings & equipment, too numerous to count.

  • Website presence ~ 25 years ago, only techie folks emailed!

  • The fall  of 1997 newsletter mentioned our house construction, it was pretty primitive for a couple of years, but Praise the Lord for an almost completed project! Now we appreciate our own Granary, attached right to the house!

  • So in some respects, Evolution does happen! Praise the LORD!

Prices from 25 years ago …

  • Golden 86 (Prairie Gold) 50# for $20, Pail for $24.50 now $39 & $49

  • SAF Yeast  was $4 now $5

  • Dough enhancer was $7. Today $7.50

  • 50# of our White Unbleached Flour was $25.20, today it is $45.50

I think shipping costs accounts for the greatest price difference! What was gas back 25 years ago? $1.16

Our 1997 newsletter also mentioned Greg & Ruth’s first baby, our first grand’cherub,’ Julia. Looking forward to greeting #11 in November! Paul & Stacey just announced the arrival of #3. We are so excited! Each one is such a blessing. 

Over the years, we have tried to lift up the Saviour & put Him first. Here are some thoughts to ponder. We serve a gracious, longsuffering Father


Last week, John & I traveled to Washington DC to meet with 500 other Independent Baptist Believers. Our mission involved visiting our Senators & Representatives, thanking them for their service & asking for prayer requests We sat with 14 fellow Alaskans, chatting with Don, Dan & Lisa. It was a blessing! One highlight of the event was sitting on the House floor at midnight, praying for all the individuals who would be making grave decisions the next day, sitting where we sat. Thursday found us on a bus again, going right back down toward the Capitol. Another was the tour of Arlington, final resting place for 400,000 folks who gave their ALL for our freedom. Very thought provoking.

Dear Ones, the best thing we can do NOW, (and it must be now. Our country is in very poor health! ) is to pray. We can all take just 5 minutes a day in sincere supplication for …

  •  Clarity, wisdom, protection and direction for our President, Vice President, the Cabinet, the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, their staff members.

Revival! The last Revival was 200 years ago. It is TIME for the LORD to show Himself strong among His People, & ask to saving the lost.


Until next time, we will be…..

Staying on our knees,

John, Margaret
