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 Life

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.

Hickman Bridge Trail, Capitol Reef National Park. • We did this little ditty one day after school and work. Super easy hike packed with tons of cool views and geological finds. • You don’t have to have tons of time and a huge plan to have an adventure. •

Raising daughters (well children in general) has always been intimidating to me. • How do I teach them to be strong, brave, courageous, and independent yet soft, gentle, and humble? • How do I not allow the insecurities that I am I still tackling to affect them and shape them? • How do I teach them to bend but not break, to refuse to accept the limits that others place on them, while still being quick to learn and listen to those that are older and wiser than them. • I still don’t have the answers to these all of these questions and most days am not sure if I am even coming close to hitting the mark. But I am so encouraged to see how God is shaping them and making all of these things and more a true part of who they are. And I am so grateful that He saw fit to allow me to be there, beside them through it all. •

Wonderland RV Park,Torrey, Utah. • Throwing it back today to our first 6 months on the road and our time out West. • We had so many great adventures while there that I have yet to document. But I am determined to keep working to get them documented here, bc are huge reason why we are doing this! • This RV park was small, but so homey. It was surrounded by farmland,close to #capitolreefnationalpark, and filled with gorgeous fruit trees that we got to pick apples from. And as we left, we stocked up on a huge bag of the most delicious apples I have ever tasted for only $5! • If you are in this area, be sure to check out this RV park! •

Super excited to have this little addition to the second leg of our traveling journey. • After weighing our truck and trailer at the cat scales, Joseph finally approved bringing it with us. • To say I am excited is an understatement. You know, we like to stick with only bringing the essentials. •

The next 4 pictures (swipe to see them all) show what a crazy vast and amazing landscape Utah has to offer. Which is why it is our favorite place so far. • All of these pictures where taken on our way to/ or in @capitolreefnps. The landscape changed so drastically over the miles we drove that we were all overwhelmed by it. • Not to mention, being we felt so at home finally seeing some trees and greenery lining the roads (picture #2). •

“Do what you can right where you are with what you have.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt. • I remember as we were trying to get our life in order to take off on our grand adventure, how DAUNTING it all felt. It never seemed like we would get there. • But every day, we did what we could to get us one step closer to where we wanted to be. And now we are enjoying the fruit of what we worked so hard for! • So what’s your dream? Goal? Desire? What could you do right now, where you are, with what you have? Small steps today can lead to big changes tomorrow! So don’t wait! Get started today!

You guys, we are about to head back up the East Coast for the first time in 6 months and all I can think about is, what an amazing ride this all has been! And we are only just beginning! • So much has happened in the last 6 months! I truly have been so caught up in the awesomeness of it all, that I haven’t been able to post all of the MANY pictures of the AMAZING places we have been. • Let’s see if I can change that and get you guys up to speed, shall we? • So going back to the last place we left off, Utah. Specially, @canyonlandsnps . Such a beautiful place. And the sunsets are phenomenal! •

Our 5 (6) Month Update

By Joseph

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.

It's been (let's say) 6 months on the road. We finally got around to our update video, and I have a few other things to share, including a new series we've started that will be much shorter and informative, but also provide more frequent videos.
