Credo:   ( Basic Beliefs)

It is not the critic who counts, not the man
who points out how the strong man stumbled
 or the doer of deeds could have done better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by sweat and dust and blood; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in worthy causes;
 who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst if he fails,
 at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat. Theodore Roosevelt
Did you know? That so much old growth timber had been cut by 1891 that the Federal Timber Reserve Act was implemented to protect a portion of the remaining old growth.
 And that President Teddy Roosevelt, a true conservationist, created what was known as
 "the midnight reserves" on his last days in office in 1907 to protect even more.

To dream beautiful dreams
and to strive for them with all your heart.
To take your talents & use them wisely and well.
To love, to laugh, to give with joy
and to look forward to each tomorrow...
that is what it is to truly live.

Our Business Model

Our Mission

Jesus said “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the father will give you whatever you ask in my name. This is my command: Love each other.” (John 15:16, 17 NIV)

Our Vision

“We commit ourselves to bearing “fruit that will last” through::

         Leading and serving with compassion

         Looking for the good in all people

         Fostering community

         Providing opportunity for purpose and meaning

         Caring relationships

 …for our workers and their families, our customers and vendors, and our local ministries.

Our Core Values

As Christian stewards, we base our relationships and the action of our companies and employees on five core values:

LOVE. God has destined us in love (Ephesians 1:4-5)
Live life as God’s beloved son/daughter.

COMMUNITY. Everything in the cosmos is connected (Col 1: 15-20)
Teach, model and reward teamwork.

RESPECT. All people are created in God's image (Genesis 1:27)
Look for the good in all people, especially those now marginalized.

COMPASSION. God rules with compassion (Luke 12:41-48)
Empower one another in service to the common good.

PURPOSE. God has a purpose for the world and for every person in it     (1 Cor: 12)
Find ways to help individuals and institutions discover and practice purpose.

It  took me a long time to realize that
 this is where it all started:
The forest of feeling
 that lives in my courtyard
knocked on my front door today
and asked if I could be
 the voice that she wanted
to say what she needed to say.
