“The Good Life” takes you to a chance meeting between an MBA and a fisherman on a small island. As the MBA tries to teach the fisherman about business, the fisherman teaches him about life.

Hint: it’s not all about the money!

    Great story!

    Have you ever heard of The Waller Family?

    The husband, Tommy Waller, left the hustle and bustle behind and took his family to live in the Amish country of Tennessee (near The West Ladies whom I know you know who they are). They eventually left that community and are now serving in Israel. All because the husband led his family through faith to be where God was leading them.

    You can find a documentary on them through Netflix titled “A Journey Home.” Check it out some time if you haven’t already.

    When Rose Wilder Land was grown and making good money traveling the world and writing for big New York magazines, she had that conversation with her mother. She wanted her parents to move to the city and work city jobs so they could earn more money and have a better life and then retire and enjoy their sunset years. Laura replied that she already had her retirement home in the country, long lazy lanes to walk and time to spend with neighbors and friends. She was living the life that her daughter wanted her to work in the city to have later.

    Thanks for posting this video! I looked at Free Range Studios and watched several more of their films. One more voice in the fight for our right to real food and to live a life of simplicity.
