Cultivating is all about integrating our faith, reason, and imagination. It is about finding ways to live with a deeper rhythm of the seasons both in a chronological year, and in the larger range of our lives. Life unfolds for us in seasons. Times of beginning, of planting, of tending, of harvesting, of putting away, of resting, of Sabbath. Recognising and honouring the seasons of our lives becomes an invitation to live on a larger scale even while we enter a way of living simpler. Taking the path of the “good way” or “ancient paths” spoken of in Jeremiah 6.16 is a quiet call to get off the frantic highway of our current culture and live our life in this world by the rhythm of time outside of it. It is there that we flourish, find peace, bear good fruit, live deeply, love well.
My name is Lancia. Lover of the Triune God, I am a writer, photographer, teacher, and business owner. I am a wife, mother, nana, sister, and friend. I am also the founder and editor-in-chief of Cultivating the Good, the True & the Beautiful, and The Cultivating Project. My creative energies are focused in connecting invisible elements to tangible forms – shaping words and images. Much of my calling concerns spiritual formation and discipling creative believers. I love every book I ever read by C.S. Lewis, have an abiding interest in the Inklings, and have been deeply shaped by books by them and about them. My husband Peter and I travel widely, run a thriving environmental, engineering, and construction firm in northern Colorado, and try to keep up with our rambling house and gardens called House on the Way.
