And whatsoever ye do, in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. (Colossians 3:17, KJV)
Meet the kids!
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6, KJV)
Making things by-hand has become a way of life for the whole family. And it’s a story that’s just beginning for our three children…
Spencer (left, age 10), Genevieve (middle, age 7, nickname Vivi), and Asher (right, age 12) all enjoy working with their hands. They spend time each week learning in their daddy’s workshop, and are quick to imagine and work through projects of their own.
In 2018, they asked if they might be able to make some items to sell at craft fairs, so we sat down with them to choose some projects, plan some schedules, and book some events. They had a great time, and a very successful craft fair season. It was the first time for all of us, and lots of fun.
And their experience has only led them to be more comfortable in the workshop, to have more ideas for new projects, and to experience more joy in working with their hands to bring an idea into reality!
We are glad that God has given us the opportunity to work together as a family, honoring the Lord with the work of our hands. We look forward to the opportunity to hand-craft something special, from our home to yours!
…and that you make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, even as we instructed you; that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and may have need of nothing. (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12, WEB)
