We just received our copy of the book 'Surviving Off Grid ~ OFF GRID; Decolonizing the Industrial Mind'. I was grateful to be able to purchase it with a gift card. Author Michael Bunker is a a Christian Agrarian Separatist trying to homestead and live in Christian Community by God's grace
This book has been out since March of this year and although I have read rave reviews, I am excited to see for myself what Mr. Bunker's convictions reveal. Although this book is not a "how to" book, I am hoping to gain more understanding as to what happened to self-sufficiency (I prefer to view it as God-sufficiency) over the years and with that said, be able to grasp with meaningful intentions what else needs to be taught to our children in order that they may take different steps where needed. We grew up living with only what we needed, during my adolescence, I resented it and was striven to choose a different life. Looking back I see the blessings of living with less and the comforts of being content with a much simpler life. Over the years since then we have felt led to go back to what may have seemed uncomfortable with a much different attitude. I could write more about what I perceive the book may cover, but I will hold my words and allow myself to read it first.
Zachary our 16 year old is also looking forward to reading this book, so we'll be sharing. It will be most exciting to discuss with him what author Michael Bunker shares with us. Until then, I look forward to sharing my thoughts when we complete our reading.
