Big & Little Hands–Hard at Work

Welcome friends, we are truly happy that you have chosen to be here with us. Encouragement, Education and Entertainment is what you can expect to find here, our little home-on-the-web. Please, be welcome. 

Our desire is to walk life with as many folks as the Lord will allow our paths to cross. We hope you will find a community with us at HERITAGE WAYS, whether it is here, or our daily Instagram posts where 1300+ folks follow and gather, sharing life. It is there that we share our daily lives, photos and goings-on. Consider joining us on Instagram by following the widget-link near the bottom of this page.

What a great first month we had here on our little home-on-the-web! Thank-you for your part in that happiness! And for your unending GRACE we are so very appreciative as we continue to learn and grow in community.

At the end of each month, beginning with this one, we plan to give you a little run-down (right here on our homepage) of what was added throughout the website with the hopes it’ll make your life a tad easier as you take advantage of our content. Don’t forget that you can utilize the search bar, as well, to locate posts, recipes, project ideas.

For now, you should know this is **the** place to fulfill your colorful hand-woven all-cotton hot pad dreams and needs!

Our littles are so excited to choose just the right colors to make beautiful hot pads. These are the good, sturdy kind! You should have seen their excitement when they sold their first set last week! Little Miss Homemaker jumped up and down and clapped with joy. The fellows asked me to take them to Hobby Lobby for more cotton loops, which they paid for themselves.

We have toiled over the most economical way to mail the hot pads to you and think we may have hit on the secret formula.

With each package you receive THREE colorful hand-woven hot pads, one made by each little with a note indicating such. After shipping and packaging costs are covered, each young entrepreneur earns $2 along with their adding $2 to an envelope designated for more material purchases.

The littles are taught to divide any earnings into three envelopes: GIVE, SAVE, SPEND. This is how we teach good stewardship, responsibility and an entrepreneurial spirit.

Won’t you please encourage them by purchasing a set of hot pads for yourself or someone else? I’ll bet a sweet shut-in lady or gentleman could use a set. We are happy to mail the package and sweet little cards and drawings to anyone you request. The children love, love, LOVE to give cards and notes to folks! Just let us know in the comments of your purchase page how you need us to fill your request.

Put Up or Shut Up

It’s true. The time has come for Mr. Patient and me to put our money where our mouths are. For the love of Pete, put up or shut up.

Maybe I need to backtrack a bit for our new friends. Well, as you read in post: “Loss and Gain”  we had a revelation, if you will, in June of 2017. You might wish to read that post as a prelude to this one.

You see, when Mr. Patient lost his job of 18 years to an overseas buy-out in 2009 our family of five went through quite an interesting season of unemployment, under-employment and self-employment. Some time I’ll write about that but for now I’ll skip over the life lessons we learned during that season of life. I’ll just say that we had decided Continue reading “Put Up or Shut Up”
