Learning, Love, and Success

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


When I say “Charles Schulz”—you picture the creator of the Peanuts comic strip. For decades, this gentle cartoonist brightened lives with his wit and wisdom.

When Charles retired, Peanuts appeared across the world in more than twenty-six hundred newspapers. But where Charles ended up is less to my point than how he started. His love of comics and drawing began with a Sunday morning ritual of reading the funnies with his dad: two people sharing a paper and some laughs.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. To do what you love with the people you love is a sure means to nurture future success. What happens at home rarely stays at the high calling of our daily work.
