Between lunch and evening chores Carter can be found out here with his boat and fishing gear. He’s invested thousands of land hours preparing for the time he will spend on the water.
Every week, we gather as a family for prayer, study, and catching up with one another. Last night, Carter told us how grateful he was for how he gets to spend his time working, with family, and playing.
It made me grateful for Nathan who’s always been the wise steward of our time and resources. At any given time I could be thinking of more we could be doing, but Nathan intuitively sees all that we are doing-right now. He prioritizes rest, time at home, balance, time in nature-and it shows.
Doing within our means has made us more successful with our work. It makes me grateful for all the wise and quiet doers working behind the scenes and making the social movements of our day productive and possible.
This is a portrait of Michelle Howell, a hardworking farmwife, mother of five, author, and advocate. On the left side of the bust you can read text from the poem “Anyway” that was on a wall of Mother Teresa’s home for children in Calcutta, India. “If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.” “The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.”
