Music and Honey Wine

Sherri and I have reached a decision about this next season of life for our family. We have learned so much about ourselves and how we work together and what our needs are over the past few months. It has been an awesome time of growth for us both.

First off, even though I am leaving my full-time position at Williamsburg Community Chapel, we will be staying here in Williamsburg, Virginia. It’s a great place to live and raise a family! Plus we have made some great friends over our last two years here. With a job/career change it’ll be helpful for all of us if we’re not moving and changing schools, churches and all of that extra stuff!

Next, I will be working on starting up a couple of businesses here. One is a music lesson studio which I am tentatively calling Williamsburg School of Music. I’ll be teaching guitar, bass guitar, and trumpet. I have been asked every month since I have been here if I teach or know of anyone who does so there does seem to be a real need in Williamsburg. Like Williamsburg School of Music on Facebook here and find the beginnings of my website here.

The other business I’m starting is called Silver Hand Winery. I’ll be crafting the oldest fermented beverage known to man, honey wine, also known as mead! I made my first batch of honey wine back in 2009 and every time someone has tried some of my mead I have received a great response. I’ve been interested in supporting the honeybee and excellent beekeepers for years. Creating wine from honey gives us all an opportunity to do that while at the same time enjoying a delicious drink! It’s also pretty fun that we live about a mile from where the honeybee was first brought into North America and likely not far from where mead was first made here too!
Like Silver Hand Winery on Facebook here. Website in progress here.

So there you go. That’s our plan. Scary? Yes. Very. But also very exciting!

As we get these businesses up and rolling our first priority will be to find students and customers! If you are interested in lessons or in buying a few bottles of mead from me (once I’m fully licensed) just let me know via Facebook or a comment or an email or a phone call. I’ll add you to the list. Your interest will greatly help us in our planning process!

Thank you to all who have been praying for us over these last few months. We are trusting in God’s provision and appreciate your continued prayer support!

Excited for you, Glenn. And I definitely want to try some of that honey wine! And it will make great returning-to-Brussels gifts. ��. Hmmm...who knows? Might be a market here too among the 1000+ types of beer. Bit more wine variety might be welcome.
