    The five brothers and sisters of the Graham family have embarked on a secret project they call Bowditching. Inspired by Nathaniel Bowditch – who worked his way up from the bottom in the sailing and navigation world of the late eighteenth century – they decide to tackle their own challenges and ambitions the same way. Learning to “sail by ash breeze” (the sailors’ phrase for hard work) isn’t easy, and they do run into squalls every now and then, but one by one the Grahams get the satisfaction of seeing their dreams stretch and grow, sometimes taking on shapes even they did not anticipate. Along the way, the Bowditchers, as they call themselves, discover that even in their modern world, true success is found in the old verse which says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not men.” (Col. 3:23)
