About LifeCraft

Bacon From Acorns has expanded into LifeCraft. It’s a natural development.

Bacon From Acorns got its name from a great truth illustrated in raising pigs. There is a wisdom and generosity in the natural order of things: an order that we can discover and follow, to the benefit and joy of all.

LifeCraft is about discovering and applying this wisdom in today’s challenging context with special attention to issues relating to household, friendship, work, and stewardship.

Human life always begins in the home. So the first of four areas is Man of the Household. I focus on man not to the exclusion of woman, but because I have something specific to share with other men—for the good of the whole household.

True Friendship is the second area because life is about relationship. To improve our friendships is to strengthen the very foundation of life.


Good Work is the third area. Karl Marx was wrong about many things. But he saw something we all should see: that in our work we express and in some sense forge our very humanity.


Finally, there is Natural Steward. We either fulfill our role as stewards of the natural world, or we don’t. Here we can discover the power and beauty of taking our proper place in the natural order.


Please join me for a few moments each week by giving your email for the Wednesday Quote.

Wednesday Quotes will usually fall under one of our main four areas, with some special exceptions. So under each of these areas is a little library of past reflections on that topic.
