Growing up Amish, community was a way of life. Our goal at Living Hope Woodwork is to contribute to the community at large by handcrafting caskets, producing a quality product made locally, and at a reasonable price.



 The following occurred in the summertime of 2005 or 2006 as I was coming home with the horse and buggy. I was traveling home on a nice summer day, when in an instant I heard two words in an audible, crisp, clear voice saying: “Living Hope”.  I immediately looked around me on the buggy, on the road and in the fields, but didn’t see anyone around at all.  This got me thinking and searching.  I came to one answer.  Jesus Christ died and rose again and He is a Living Hope.  That’s not all.  I can have that same Living Hope if I accept Jesus Christ as my Savior and Master and become born again!  John 3:3 says: “Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Sometime later  as I was sharing with a friend what had happened,my friend then told me what it says in 1 Peter1:3.  I don’t remember knowing that verse before then. There is only one way into Heaven (John 10) and that way is Jesus Christ. Think about it, today Jesus is our lawyer, but the hour is coming when He will be our judge.  Call on Jesus and be saved.  Hell is too long to be wrong.  God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).  God has made it available to be saved, so what we do with Jesus now, determines our eternal destiny.  May God bless you as you seek Him!
