Welcome to the LifeCraft Members' Home.

When you become a LifeCraft member, you join a community committed to filling a cultural void. You join others committed to more fully discovering the end-goal of our lives through time-tested wisdom – in order to live more joyful, human lives. 

Through LifeCraft membership, you become part of a vibrant movement of professionals, students, parents, grandparents, and many more bringing natural philosophy into today’s experience of household, friendship, work, and stewardship. You gain access to LifeCraft courses and basic content, and can join in online discussion with others taking the courses. 

Here is a taste of the free courses for members...

Man of the Household

There is a natural plan inscribed deep within human nature for being man of the household. This course uncovers this astounding calling by giving clear explanation of basic principles and pointing the way to living them out today. We can cut through the fog of  confusion and discover the true power of what it is to be a man.

Woman of the Household

Men and women alike have missed the gift of womanhood. This course uncovers the truth of the nature of woman, her genius and profound connection to that most beautiful of realities: the household. We can move past the stereotypes and misperceptions to discover the reality of woman, and how she can thrive today.

Concepts Made Clear

Concepts Made Clear features short videos that take one term and do three things: define, explain and apply. These concepts are rooted in the great western philosophical tradition and applied to life today. Whether the topic is the economy or contemplation, get clearer thinking one concept at a time.

Dinner at Home

Eating is the one of the most overlooked but best keys for changing our life and the lives of those we love. If we choose to to be reliably and intentionally present to our spouse and children at dinner, how will that impact our relationship with them today, and shape our children’s identity for the future? This course is designed to guide families, especially fathers, in crafting meaningful mealtimes in the home.
