Christendom philosophy professor Dr. John Cuddeback unveiled a new version of his popular website, Bacon from Acorns, this month, with the new name of LifeCraft. Aimed at helping people craft a good human life, LifeCraft will continue Cuddeback’s popular blog while also offering online webinar courses and more.
LifeCraft was created to help people confront the problems of today. In striving to live a truly human life, people feel confused and undermined by obsessions with power, wealth, image, and connection rather than relationships, reality, and presence. Cuddeback’s site seeks to share a craft that will empower readers to fashion a vibrant life for themselves and their loved ones.
“There is a wisdom and generosity in the natural order of things: an order that we can discover and follow, to the benefit of all. LifeCraft is about discovering and applying this wisdom in today’s challenging context,” says Cuddeback. “A craft is a know-how that we study and that can become part of our very selves. The know-how we seek here is wisdom about human life itself. It is a know-how of the most important kind, as it empowers us to craft a good human life, in ourselves and others.”
Along with his weekly blog, LifeCraft now has four areas of focus as well — areas that will be familiar to anyone who has studied philosophy at Christendom College. The four areas are: Man of the Household, True Friendship, Good Work, and Natural Steward. Each section includes special videos dedicated to them, along with posts that further explore these areas.
To launch the updated site, Cuddeback is also offering a Man of the Household course for this coming month, which will be presented in an online webinar format. More classes are planned for the future, which will give people the opportunity to either partake in an experience similar to what is found in Cuddeback’s Christendom classes or go deeper into studies they began while on campus as undergraduates.
The expansion of Dr. Cuddeback’s website was made possible in part by a generous grant from the Bradshaw-Knight Foundation.
