The ‘Tiny Steward’ Philosophy

You are a Tiny Steward if you…

1) Live in a space ≤400 sq ft. by choice (it’s easy otherwise!)


Live completely off the grid in an earth-friendly home that is ≤200 sq ft. per person

2) Tithe time or money into environmental stewardship practices or organizations

And Finally

3) Believe everyone has a responsibility to encourage and engage in a land ethic that leads to the preservation of our environment and harmony between nature and mankind (e.g., Aldo Leopold’s land ethic).

Renee and I believe everyone is called to lead purpose-driven lives.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” – 1 Peter 4:10

We all have the ability to lead others into meaningful attitudes and perceptions of the environment by putting into practice what unique gifts we have to offer and living by example. If you want to have an atmosphere of acceptance toward sustainable living in your community, it must start with you!

The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out” – Proverbs 20:5

We have always been meant to have a personal connection to and be stewards of our environment.

The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it” Genesis 2:15

Whether driven by scripture, your personal story, or inspired by the words of our greatest naturalists, we can all agree that…

We can be ethical only in relation to something we can see, feel, understand, love, or otherwise have faith in.” –Aldo Leopold
