Our Life On Purpose

We have 940 Saturdays until our kids graduate from high school and go on to college. That's 18 summers to make the most of our time with them.

Every year, we make resolutions to be intentional. Eat less, exercise more, get up earlier etc. We want to live our life on purpose, be intentional about parenting and being together and make family our favorite thing.

About two times a month we send out updates in our newsletter about what we're doing. We'll be creating our own resources on how to get more out of your family time, so sign up to be notified when they're finished.

Our Blog

We love family time, and though sometimes that means we have more mess than we'd like, we want to share our journey with you. Follow along as we share our favorite experiments and experiences as we try to make every moment count.

Though the days are long, the years are short.

It's been a long time since we've posted travel videos — and we've missed it. We still have all that video and are now going back to sift through it and choose what video makes the cut. Meagan and I decided to catch you up to what's been going on in our lives using what we're calling “Travel Diaries”. The travel diaries are a way for us to tell what we did, and show some video of those experiences without making a full blown “destination video”. Click through to watch and read.

5(6) Months!! I keep writing it that way because we intended to get this out at the 5 month mark, when in reality, two days from now will be 6 months, but I digress.
