How Sixty-One Acres Began
Through many dreams (sleeping dreams), words from the Lord, confirmation with scripture, and passionate interests, He has revealed to both Christi and Darin a beautiful picture of this ministry. It has been revealed piece by piece- never seeing the full picture at once. In January, 2020, while on a family trip to Costa Rica, both Darin and Christi had numerous prophetic dreams of a grander picture of what this ministry is. Then, in November of 2020, while away on a personal retreat with Jesus, the vision was fully birthed of Sixty-One Acres.
The name derives from Isaiah 61, and the words Hear, Heal, Grow, and Give follow along with the progression of the chapter. Our purpose is to guide God’s sons and daughters through this chapter of Isaiah as they learn to Hear His Voice, Heal their hurts, Grow as a disciple, and ultimately Give it to others. Although for many years Darin and Christi struggled to find commonality in ministry endeavors, God has been faithful to bring 2 very different people with different passions and giftings together for the furtherance of His Kingdom! To God be the Glory and may we be found faithful with His vision for Sixty-One Acres.

The more I learn, the more I realize I have NO IDEA! God is taking me on yet another journey of even deeper learning how He created me. Self-reflection and self-discovery can be emotionally draining and exhausting! Especially when you thought you had already been there and done that! I suppose there are always more […]
Our first Little Sparrow flew the coop. She’s been testing flight for 5 years, leaving home for longer periods each time. This time, she flew away, never to return to the nest (to live) again. She walked the beautiful aisle-journey from her Daddy’s arms, into her husbands’ arms. What an incredible adventure it is to […]
Click Here to read Part 1. I was at my breaking point and, as always, God had teed it up perfectly! My husband would be traveling soon for an entire week, which would provide more time for reflection about this dry place I found myself in. God began the process when He led me to […]
It had been 11 days since I had opened my journal- a rarity for this girl who loves Jesus and loves to write. Over the last 6 months, there had been fewer and fewer written words and more and more busy activity. Simultaneously, I was becoming more tired, unmotivated, and almost felt a sense of […]
