On Episode 51 of Love Bites — The Shepherd’s View: Fatherly Love, Land, and Loss — author and shepherd James Rebanks shared four stories about how working the tough job of shepherding in the bucolic northwest corner of England taught him some timeless lessons about love: love for the generations of men who’d worked the same land before him, and love for the traditions of sustainable farming that are sadly so unique and rare in the world today. As we’re exploring familial love right now, his stories were fodder for helping us to open up and share about relationships with our own grandfathers and fathers. But Jacqueline asked him one more question that wasn’t discussed; a question about his love for his wife, Helen.

Here’s what he had to say.
