New Book by Tim Diebel
From the Book Cover:
"By book's end, you will discover that Tim and Lori and 'found [their] way home by another way and put down deep and securing roots.' These spiritual and physical taproots have nourished them in ways they could never have expected or even imagined when Tim traded his clerical garb and guitar for overalls and a hoe. But it didn’t start out that way.
And the journey from pulpit to garden was long and messy.
In lively prose, Tim Diebel invites us to walk with him through his tall grass prairie, down the garden rows sampling sweet peas and tomatoes along the way, into the chicken coop gathering multi-colored eggs protected by animated hens and through the apple orchard where blossoms rain down upon our heads. His openness to his mistakes and nature’s tricks as well as earth’s bounty help us feel our own taproots grow deeper and our hearts expand for the earth and all its creatures."
"Home by Another Way, Tim Diebel’s important and inspiring work of art, articulates the
relationship between tending the soil and tending the soul in practical ways that have
powerful implications for our social, religious, and environmental salvation. Truly a

"Home by Another Way is an honest, witty and thought-provoking journey to becoming
a farmer, told from a spiritual and attentive viewpoint. Tim’s journey started off with the goal to merely learn how to grow food. It transpired into many outdoor life lessons about discipline, patience, interconnectedness, appreciation, cooperation, situational
awareness, and a job well done."
