HGTV’s Jenny Marrs: ‘We Pray These Experiences Will Allow Our Kids To Rise Up As World Changers’

By Movieguide® Contributor

FIXER TO FABULOUS star Jenny Marrs recently shared a sweet video of her family spending time on their farm, from picking blueberries to taking care of their cows. 

“Checking the fields each evening, pulling weeds, and picking berries has been the framework for our kiddo’s summers for the past seven years,” Jenny shared. “They jump in and work right alongside us. It’s a beautiful privilege to be able to work as a family to create delicious food and to cultivate a space for our community to gather and experience a slice of farm life.”

Her caption continued:

This small blueberry farm has taught us that we can all DO something bigger than ourselves. The ripple effect of these fields reaches farther than we ever anticipated. It isn’t easy but it IS simple: profits from our u-pick farm in NW Arkansas benefit a farm training program for orphaned teens in Marondera, Zimbabwe.

This farm is one of the legacy’s Dave and I want to pass down to our children. We want them to value hard work and nature and, most of all, generosity. We want them to understand that it’s never “us” and “them.” It’s not “here” and “there.” We have had shared meals with our Zimbabwean leaders at their table and at ours. We have become dear friends who do life together as best we can across a sea. We hold them close in prayer and we have hopefully shown our kiddos that even though we live in different countries, with different cultures and foods and languages and looks, we are united in our humanity and our desire to run the race set before us well. With so much division in our world today, we pray these experiences will allow our kids to rise up as world changers and light bearers for their generation. 

So, yes. These fields may look like just an ordinary blueberry farm. But, there is so much more sewn into this soil: hopes and prayers and hard work and heaps of love.

We’ll see you in the fields in less than a month!
