My name is Philip and I'm a husband and father, a writer, an outdoor enthusiast, an architectural designer, an artist, and a musician. I'm a creative person. Basically, I like to make stuff, almost anything. I like to work with my hands. I like to do things myself and I usually figure out ways to make things for less money and of higher quality than what is typically available in the marketplace. I believe in living sustainably and practically. I’m a proponent of debt-free living at least as much as possible. This book is about me and my family's lifestyle and attempting to put all those things into practice, and what it's brought us through. We bought our own place and began our own family mini-farm. Through farming, hunting, and fishing; we produced all of our food at one point. It's not just about me or my family though, God, the Creator, has given us everything we have. Any talents have been a gift from God. So, this book is about Him just as much as it’s about what He has done through me or my family, or what He has enabled us to do.

Written by Denise Crossan
Philip Crossan has spent more than half of his life loving the country lifestyle, in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country. Since the time we married, we’ve practiced homesteading and attempted to live a life that is sustainable and complementary to our faith. Over this journey of more than eighteen years, our story has developed. Through trials and errors, accomplishments, and successes, we have grown in so many ways.
During his youth, Philip became an accomplished artist and musician. He attended college first studying Architecture and Civil Engineering, then later Religion and Biblical Studies. Philip has practiced architecture on and off for about twenty years. During this time he also had the opportunity to run a furniture company for about thirteen years as well. Currently, we reside with our five children in our home that Philip built with his own hands; he writes books, makes videos with our oldest two children, and chases me around the kitchen for fun.
