Homesteading and Christian Life with Joseph Buckner

Joseph and his family purchased land in the Ozarks of Missouri and started homesteading around 5 years ago.  We talk about how Joseph grew up in the Christian faith, but it wasn’t a real spiritual experience for Joseph personally until he was in his 30’s.  I admire Joseph’s biblical wisdom and lifestyle.  I hope take away some of that for my own life from spending some time with Joseph.

Bob Stergos – Mentoring Young Adults By Taking Them In To Live With Family

Bob and his wife Chrissy have raised their 4 adult sons by birth and taken in an additional 5 young men to live with their family for periods of 3 to 10 years each. They both have first-hand experience with welcoming, resourcing and championing at-risk and under resourced young people into their home and family. They started an organization called “A Seat At The Table” that helps other families to mentor young adults in similar ways.

We also talk about Bob’s life and why he does what he does. It’s an encouraging conversation.
