This week we have something special for you.
There is some information out there that Bowtreader is starting a podcast, exploring the details of our outdoor wisdom. This is your official confirmation: THAT NEWS IS TRUE!
We have been making calls to people over the past few months and setting up our equipment. We couldn’t be more pleased to announce that our first Bowtreader podcast will go live within the next few days! The people of Bowtreader have all been grinding away at our normal duties outside — a process now complete with taking notes and videos because we want to share our work with the world!
More importantly, we want you to become a part of what we are doing so you can share it with the world. If it isn’t already obvious, at Bowtreader there are a few things we are all about.
Family is the key one. Without family, this business literally wouldn’t exist because all of the people who make it functional are either parts of our own genetic family or branches we have grafted on (to use an outdoor term;). The Outdoors is the obvious one. Getting active is the essential one (for both being a part of a family and a creation.) And no one can deny that cooking is foundational for every part of life! If you think you can… try a keto diet. Seriously. It doesn’t go well.
We're going back to the basics here of what it means to be a person — more importantly, one who is part of a bigger picture. Everyone is a part of creation, everyone is part of a community, and everyone has a decision on how they are going to affect (and be affected by) those things. It has been true since the first two people walked the earth and it will be until Jesus comes back. That means that everyone has a share in what we offer and the work we are about.
We want you to be a bigger part of what you eat, who you are with, and the world you live in. You could say health is one of our goals — but it isn’t just eating greens and drinking oranges 😉. It's living to the fullest every day by participating in the things that are going on around you. It's taking care of those things instead of being a passive member. It's being observant and caring about the things in your charge.
We don’t know what's in yours, but we all have a calling to take care of the world that we live in and praise the One who made it!
On the podcast, those are the things you can expect to hear about.
Okay, not just those.
We recorded our first one this Monday and you can bet that there were a fair share of jokes, a few rabbit holes, and surely some moments of interrupting voices.
But we're here to teach you, and though we firmly believe that all teachers must be judged by higher standards (James 3:1), we also are fully aware that not all teachers are perfect. We are real. The things we talk about are real. While we refuse to take this responsibility lightly, the last thing we want is for our tidbits to seem fake and unattainable.
Expect to be taught. Expect to learn things about the outdoors, family, spiritual life, and hunting and be better for it.
Expect to hear a good bit of stories. Because even when we try to script ourselves, the stories work themselves in. What else can you expect when a family of outdoorsmen and women get together?
Expect to be warned. It's another way of teaching but it deserves it's own mention. You can’t exactly avoid warnings if you listen to some of our stories. We cover what both what to do and what not to do…
Expect to be called to action. If there's anything we know for a fact, it's that words don’t have much of a general impact if they don’t ask people to do something. With reading, that is harder to implement (our own studies and psychological studies show) which is why this can’t be the only way we are reaching people — to educate about the outdoors, to gather people together to eat and laugh, to tell them the Good News we know, and ultimately bring people closer to each other and God over the wonderful beauty of His creation.
With this new project, we will have guest speakers over to share their wisdom, our own pals to tell their stories, and our family to tell ours. Our crew will come on with plenty of tips — not to forget that you get to hear our trivia abilities tested occasionally, straight from the Dub’s tough list!
Both have contributed to our blog; both are good and whip smart outdoorsman, willing to invest in other ones. Those are the kind of people we can’t get enough of.
Be sure to keep an eye out for our first podcast to hear all of it for yourself. You don’t want to miss this!
