Family Project Time

Families are where it all starts, and that foundation will shape a child’s future.

It’s such a delight to see my brothers embracing the vision of doing projects together with their families.

Nathan likes to tackle making homemade applesauce with his crew every autumn. As he told me, the first years, the kids were too young to help that much, but they would be around and doing what they could. Fast forward to 2019, and they are now a dynamic team. The two oldest girls are a powerhouse and were so excited to help. They even got up early on a Saturday morning anxious to start.

Nathan set up the garage to be able to process everything, and Melanie cooked the applesauce in the kitchen.

What could you do as a family that would include your kids?


In just two hours, Nathan and his kids picked 9 bushels.
Tina giving Drew’s scooter a bike wash while the apple process went on.
Abby enjoying a break and knitting. She’s become a proficient maker of hats and booties.

“For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands:
happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.”
