About Our Name

My grandmother was respected for her unconditional love and generosity. Devoted to her family and God, she was a woman of uncommon gifts – generosity, hard work, and gratitude – in the face of some of life’s greatest sorrows and joys.

Our name, Seven Portions was inspired by her favorite passage from the Bible.

Cast your bread upon the waters,
  for you will find it after many days.
Give a portion to seven, or even to eight,
  for you know not what disaster may happen on earth.
If the clouds are full of rain,
  they empty themselves on the earth,
  and if a tree falls to the south or to the north,
  in the place where the tree falls, there it will lie.
He who observes the wind will not sow,
  and he who regards the clouds will not reap.

                                                         Ecclesiastes 11:1-4 (ESV)
