Our Stuff Got Stolen But It Was NBD

In Blog by Jerad Hill1 Comment

Life is a series of situations unfolding and I believe that the way we react to those situations is what defines our quality of life. Last Sunday we had planned to load up our food into an already loaded trailer and head off for six days of tent camping. What we found was a cut lock and 80% of our stuff missing. Now we don’t pack light. I rented a …

Things I’m Into (June 2017)

The Moving Blues

In Blog by Jerad Hill1 Comment

Late last year I found out that I most likely would be forced out of the building I was leasing for my business. Not that I was being strong-armed or anything, but the rate increase combined with the required terms would have been a little bit more than I wanted to take on. I like where I was because I had a lot of space and a shop for my …

Grace, but not all the time. A Parenting Blog

In Blog by Jerad Hill0 Comments

A couple of weeks ago I was reminded of a book from my childhood called “The Little Red Hen.” In the story, the Hen invites his friends to help her bake a cake, but her friends are too lazy to help her. At the end of the book, the lazy friends wanted to share in the hard work of the Hen, but the Hen decided not to share and enjoyed the …
