Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.

Jeremiah 6:16

“work refreshed”

Our roots in business go back… way back! Lively’s General Store was a fixture in its small mountain town back in the day, and our company name pays homage to the old-fashioned work ethic we inherited from all our family.

“Work Refreshed” is more than a slogan painted on the old storefront: it’s how we live. We pursue people and projects that use our gifts and skills to serve others. Our company is purposely designed so we  can live and work anywhere, and be present for the people and causes that are important to us. Solving problems and making life better is how we help you work refreshed, too.
