For the last few months, I have been thinking about my life in terms of being a producer and a consumer. Let me explain.
Politically, Donald Trump made this idea (without using this exact language) front and center in minds and hearts.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear,

When I was in fifth-grade, my class spent a day planting pine tree seedlings to fill areas of a local forest left bare by a lumber company cutting down trees. It was our Earth Day project and I was so excited to get out into the woods. I was even more excited when we were all given a few baby trees to take at the end of the afternoon so that we could plant them wherever we chose.
My parents helped me plant my bundle of pine trees on the border of our property. It wasn’t too long afterwards that we moved away from that house and that town…
