Name: Julie A Carda

After studying dance in Europe, Julie returned to the United States and graduated from Creighton University. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she graduated from St. John’s University in Collegeville with a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the past twenty years, she has taught high school and college courses, and facilitated workshops on the healing arts while occasionally writing for academic periodicals. Her quest to acknowledge world religions and the desire to expose the similarities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal Source of love in all people. Besides writing fiction, Julie is co-creating a Space of Love through advocacy for Kin Domains.

Conversion: Step Five

The addition of an electrical hook up for a light fixture will give me the advantage of lengthening the days. I guess chickens, like all life forms, take their cues from the sun. If I want egg production to remain the same in the winter I need to provide the same amount of daylight hours as the summer. So the electrical box was mounted to the ceiling. We used wire made for exterior use and drilled a hole from the interior out under the eave of the exterior wall. I fastened a hook under the eave so the plug in can be hidden away when not in use.

In my early teacher background, I learned how to make a small solar panel to power a toy car. I'm hoping I can figure out how to make a small panel to turn on the light bulb inside the hen house. That project will be saved until after the garden is done for the season. A person only has so many hours in the day!
