Home for a Bit

We really weren’t sure how this summer would go since it was the first summer since we started traveling full-time that we were free agents, out on the road with no real agenda and plenty of road to burn and places to see. For the past 3 summers, we’ve been …

I Love to Blog

10 Tips for Eating Healthy and Exercising on the Road

Traveling and choosing good health seem to be two things that do not easily go hand in hand, and I think I know why. Eating healthy foods, choosing small portions, and exercising daily are things that require a lot of intentional planning and attention, and traveling is something that, even …

Great Expectations

Why don’t things ever turn out the way we pictured them? Have you ever thought it might be because you haven’t dreamed big enough? For us, it seems like every time we get a God dream in our souls, immediately our own great expectations take over. The problem is that often they …
