About Us

From the time our family began, my husband and I had one simple goal: to follow the Lord in our lives, wherever He might lead. Soon, He began to lead us according to 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12: And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing. We began, steadily, to do more things by hand: to grow more of our food, to make more of our own clothes, and, for my husband, to build more and more things by-hand from wood. As we learned and prayed, we began to ask the Lord, ‘Where should we go to live the life you have set before us?’ And over the course of a few years, He led us steadily to our little place in Downeast Maine, a place where we have the privilege to continue to learn and grow in leading a quiet life and working with our hands, where we renovate our little cabin, and clear land, and rehabilitate the apple trees, and farm, and harvest wood from the forest. We pray that the work of our hands will be honoring to the Lord and also be a pleasure to you!
