Welcome to Episode 6 of Self-Sufficient Life!

Raising a teenager is challenging—always has been. But imagine you’re raising one in a busy California coastal town—say—Santa Barbara.

It’s 1996 and the city is besieged by violence. The police have their hands full with over 800 gang members, creating a steady stream of mischief.

And there’s been an increasing trend in real violence. Drive-by shootings, gang rapes, brawls, stabbings,

And here you are, a single mom trying to raise a 15-year old by yourself.

So, what do you do with your rebellious daughter?

You stick her on a plane and sentence her to a new life on a homestead.

This is the inspiring story of Kendra Lynne from the blog New Life on a Homestead.
