Home, One of the Most Fertile Places in the World

The idea of fertility is the ability to reproduce and sustain life. Being able to produce abundant growth or crops. The home on our farm has been a good place to grow children. Fertile places support strong families and grow strong children.

Here are 10 ideas for how your home can grow a strong family and strong children.

  1. The strongest relationship in the home must be between the parents. When the marriage is strong, the children are strong. A strong marriage makes a fertile home.
  2. Prosperous families treat each other with respect and kindness. 
  3. Home is a refuge a safe place.
  4. Home is a creative place.
  5. Home is the source of learning. This is the parents job, the school is only there to help.
  6. We learn to work in the home. It is the parents job to teach their children to work.
  7. Children learn how to manage money in the home - how to earn, save, spend and give,
  8. We learn to plant, grow, weed, harvest and sell the fruit of our hands. In our case this is vegetables from our farm.
  9. We learn to be an entrepreneur. We don't need a J.O.B, we create value and people will pay us for our services.
  10. We learn to give. To be generous to the less fortunate, to share our bounty and to give to our church. We work with an open hand.
