Fences represent protection, boundaries, rules, and guidelines. Of all the kinds of fences in the world, picket fences seem welcoming and homey, rather than foreboding. Picket Fences have been around for generations, making them seem almost like an old, faithful friend. Their faithfulness transcends the latest trends in fencing styles.

Because of this, for us, picket fences symbolize guidance.

The name Watermelon & Picket Fences represents the balance needed so your traditional, Christian family will thrive!

What is a traditional Christian family?

Mankind’s Creator gives us the answer to this question. In his written Word, the Holy Bible, we can find the “Ideal” family. The Ideal, although highly valuable, is not necessarily the “norm” in the days we are living in. 

In addition to God’s Word, God has given us visible resources. Our elders, who blazed the trail in the wilderness of life before us, lived by tried and proven guiding-principles that have worked for many generations. These principles overlap, interconnect, and relate to each other in countless ways. We intend to bring these principles into view with the goal of providing you with resources.

Although it’s a challenge to live as a traditional family in our world, it IS possible with God’s help!
