"These can be discouraging days for farmers," says Steve Hanson's pastor, Don Swenson. While the rest of the economy is booming, many farmers in the congregations Swenson serves --Beavercreek and Trinity Lutheran, Sharon, N.D. -- struggle with low crop prices, yet they pay more for fertilizer and fuel needed to produce that crop.

StewardLife is a site dedicated to a non-monetary approach to living the life of a Christian steward. This site will explore: unknown biblical principles of life management, living life with an awareness of God's grace-gifts, a daily relationship with God and his people, making God's presence real through simple perception exercises. StewardLife will change weekly. Week-by-week the stories, metaphors and exercises will guide you into a new perception of how God blesses you and how those blessings are put to work in your life.

This site is maintained through the Board for Congregational Services, Department of Stewardship Ministry of the Lutheran Church -- Missouri Synod.
