Living NEKed

Create Your Kingdom

Living NEKed? It really is a thing. From playing in the outdoors to checking in with your neighbors, it’s a way of life that requires only one thing: a love of Joy. Our friends from the Northern Forest Center have picked up on that pulse with their Create Your Kingdom video series and we want to thank them for letting us share it. Should you find yourself thinking that maybe you want to call the Kingdom home after watching them, scroll to the bottom of this page to find a resource or two that will help you make that thought a reality. Enjoy.
