the pavilion & the barn
When we bought this little neglected twelve acre farm & sawmill last year, we were either crazy or crazy. We neither farm nor saw logs.
But we believe in the importance of creating something that grows people– much like a farm, and we believe in the value of strong foundations and that what you do starts at home–much like what a sawmill provides–good foundations and literal building blocks for strong homes. Am I good at metaphors or what?!
Some of you have already come here to The Barn, hopefully some of you will come in the future, but right now, it’s the guy’s turn.
It’s ManTime y’all.
A weekend for the kind of man who might not attend a Men’s Retreat.
A weekend that you think about when you see all those fun women’s blogging conference and you wish there was something for your husband to attend.
A weekend here on our property, where the guys eat meat, sit around a huge bonfire, hang out with purpose and spend time outdoors. No fancy conference rooms, no dumb games, no four men in a hotel room pretending that no one is snoring.
Y’all, won’t believe who is going to be at ManTime: John Sowers— author of The Heroic Path: In Search of the Masculine Heart (from our favorite things!!!). He’s the President of the Mentoring Project, accomplished hunter of large animals & our friend! John will be attending and leading the discussions at ManTime. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, I SO want to dress up as a man and attend this weekend! This weekend will be fun and relaxing, and delicious but also intentional and life-giving. Just what your man deserves. Maybe exactly what he needs.
Music will be provided by the talented Jacob Early–don’t be surprised if banjos are involved, meats provided by Philip from Wicker BBQ, Local Brews will be available, cigars and pipes will be smoked, guns might be shot, great conversation will be offered from the master conversationalist–my husband Chad, the co-host for ManTime– Brian Dixon, my sister’s husband’s John and of course our dad Gary.
All personality types welcome. Permission granted for everyone to be themselves.
Spaces are limited–they are keeping the group small to have better conversation, it’s barely even announced it and it’s almost 1/4 full — men are already buying tickets and some are flying in from around the US! Oh my gosh we are hosting ManTime!
