  18. Debra Schnell says:

    If I win I would put new buildings on my farm as these are all very old well over 50 years and need to be rebuilt. The horse stall would be first then the old farm house. Electrical upgrades with solar and wind power would be awesome. Hire me helpers to take care and train the horses so they can be ridden again would be my dream come true.
    Then I will see from there, as animals first then me after. I really could use a lot of workers here and build a business of some sort to create some reliable jobs. An all American company store sounds good to me. Just a pipe dream.

  21. De'Nise says:

    First thing is to bless my church and Jesus with 1/10 of my winnings, then purchase land somewhere very special for a home and a few farm animal’s to help sustain my family year round with all kinds of gardens. I would spend the money to help the Physicians restore my disfigured anatomy caused but a very bad chemical fire and prayerfully restore my smile I believe that is the one true thing I miss the most in my life is being able to smile and relay my feeling for all whom bless me. I would like to purchase horses and live a good life loving the lord and spend where he guides me and nothing to fancy just comfortable. And most certainly bless my Grands all girls their the light of my life, I am disabled so I would want a place I could feel secure and honor Jesus by working as much as my Body and mind would allow and I would spoil my self with a Greenhouse attached for all my plants and winter tomatoes Nothing to special I pray all this in Jesus holy name I would be happy with anything I won

  22. Ralkhar Bualteng says:

Now, I live my own little studio. Thanks to Haven. The furniture, I have is from my eldest brother whom I call my hero. Thank you PCH for allowing me to play. Peace,Love,and Joy to all of y’all.

  39. Rena Brown says:

    here again. I just love that a few months ago… it was all I want.. I claim… and it really struck me. painfully so. I look now and love what I am seeing. Beauty in what most have put here. BTW, Im in with you on the *Shout Out… Thank you Jesus** its the season to remind and be reminded what gifts are all about. Its encouraging to hear others… I love it. By a tiny mustard seed here and there…. I would like to add something. We really also have another thing that NEEDS help. Autism Spectrum Disorder is becoming so heavy on many families anymore. I know what one goes thru to be ASD. It is hard on parents and children. We already have a rough draft on how to make a farm for children like this… to get help with animals… DOGS are offered to so few… everything BUT US! so I would like to find a few great people to help us bring in certain pups for training or dogs that are good with the kids in this way as herding dogs. They keep close to your child and they do get to share space with others easier. This is another reason I want to do this. These children are exceptional…. they just need some help as they are the few without resources. Austrailian Shepherds outstanding for them … also are golden retrievers, Rotties and well then there is the hearding dog again! LOL Please remember me… I will come here and list forever about these things. Keep people straight? haha we all should. I want to thank you PCH! Happiness all around. SO…. if YOU WANT TO BRING A DOG… PUP? IT WOULD HELP US A BUNCH. Thanks again….
