1.16.14 Day-in-the-life of: Jeremy Willet

Over the next few weeks, we are going to let you into the lives of the three brothers that make up the band, Willet. We will be focusing on what a normal day schedule looks like for an “off-tour” day at our homes/ministry offices in Westminster, MD. Enjoy! 

311153_10151542907658289_643181340_nA DAY-IN-THE-LIFE OF LEAD SINGER, JEREMY WILLET

6:00am – wake up to iPhone alarm 

6:05am – Brew dark roast coffee from my favorite local coffeeshop, Furnace Hills Coffee that uses fair-trade methods, grows organic beans, and employs workers with special needs! 

6:10am - Quiet time with The Lord. I typically spend time in the following: One-year reading plan for NLT Bible, “Practicing the Presence of God” or a spiritual discipline-style book, Bible Study in ESV Study Bible & journal/pray about upcoming day, friends/family, and ministry opportunities 

7:00am - Go to Willet Ministry offices (located in my basement next to Willet’s studio) to answer emails and make daily to-do list. This is also when I schedule a few social media posts for the band. There is no heat in this office, so I’m typically sitting right next to a little heater. Also…a little mouse just ran up the wall (not a daily occurrence). 

8:00am - Drink fresh juice or fruit smoothie with my wife and son and pray for our day. In the winter, I also use this time to gather wood for our woodstove, feed our chickens, and gather eggs. 

8:30am - Back to ministry office for a few more emails, fill out booking contracts and advance upcoming shows

9:00am- songwriting with my brothers for new Willet album 

12:00noon - Break for lunch with my wife and son 

12:30pm - Our son takes an afternoon nap, so I use this time to go back to the office. In addition to touring with the band full-time, I also serve as the Worship & Community Development Coordinator for New Mission Systems International, so I use the early afternoon to schedule “House Worship Nights”, coordinate communications with donors, set up mission projects, and collaborate with staff at NMSI in Fort Myers, FL. 

2:00pm – Coffee & return to studio to write with Justin & Jordan

5:00pm – Play with my son while my wife makes dinner. We read the “Jesus Storybook Bible” together and then practice some soccer (he’s 17 months old, so that involves me kicking it to him and then chasing the ball around the house). 

5:30pm – Eat dinner with my family. My wife is an amazing homemaker, constantly striving to grow, purchase and create healthy meals for us. Our food is typically from our backyard garden, a local CSA, grass-fed/local beef, or natural/organic foods from the grocery store. 

6:15pm - Help clean up from dinner and play with our son

7:00pm – Bath/Bedtime for our son. We read some books together and pray before bedtime.

7:30pm – I’m training for a 300 Mile Cycling Event to raise money for youth ministry in Thailand called The Key West Bike Rideso 3x a week, I cycle 20-40 miles (outdoors on road bike when weather permits, or indoors on an indoor trainer)

9:00pm – Reading. Currently, my wife and I are preparing for our missionary training with NMSI, so we are reading “When Helping Hurts” in preparation for orientation in Fort Myers, FL in February. 

10:00pm – Adoption Paperwork or Hobby Time. We just returned home with our son from Ghana, so we are working through some post-placement & naturalization paperwork, while also adopting a 2nd child from Ethiopia, Africa. I recently started a hobby of making my own soy candles, so some nights I do another batch of candles in mason jars while my wife sews. Other nights, we’ll catch an episode of “West Wing” or “Madmen”. 

11:00pm - Bed
