Fueled by a desire to highlight Biblical ministries, share the beauty of adoption of children with special needs, and cultivate an anchored community Marlin and Lisa Miller began Plain Values, a magazine published monthly, in 2012. The Millers have adopted all four of their children. Their oldest child is on the Autism spectrum and the younger three children all have Down syndrome.

Marlin and Lisa have values steeped in the rich traditions of yesterday, enjoying the simple things in life; gathering eggs from the coop, getting their hands in the dirt to grow food, and cooking meals from scratch. They also strive to strengthen authentic relationships with their families and neighbors, living in a community just like their grandparents did.

Over the years the magazine has expanded to include quality articles, some written by Rory Feek and Joel Salatin, highlighting the movement towards homesteading and anchored community, while still showcasing Biblical ministries and working to support organizations who care for children with special needs and their families through their nonprofit, Room to Bloom.

It began with two phone calls in the same week from two different people. In November 2020, Mark Coblentz of Walnut Creek Foods in Walnut Creek, Ohio and Galen Lehman of Lehman’s in Kidron, Ohio, called John Miller of Superb Industries with the question: “We can’t get canning lids anywhere. Can you make them?” After looking at every angle, John said, “Yes! We have German and Swiss automation technology that gives us the capacity, edge, and ability to make the lids in a one-step process. We can make 100 million lids per year, and that’s only about 10% of the total market.”

This opportunity came at a time when a client had canceled their order and there were two machines sitting unused. Superb was able to reverse engineer a lid and convert those two machines into what they needed in only six months’ time. “Normally, it would take one to two years to put a machine like that together. I will always give credit to God for the timing of this opportunity”, John said. “We always wanted to find a way to contribute to our local community. This was a perfect fit.” And the response from the community has been tremendous. And that’s how we, “Put a lid on it!”
