2020 has been a year of transition for our family. For our friends and loved ones who have been following along with us on this journey, you know that we had been building a cabin retreat in the mountains of Colorado for a while now. When we first began to build the cabin back in 2018, we didn't know that we would be moving to Colorado. It was to be our gateway to the mountains, to the wilderness of God's glorious creation. The more time we spent visiting Colorado to work on the cabin, the more we felt the calling to...

I feel like someone out there needs to hear this today - Just because you are in a period of waiting, does not mean that nothing is happening. I was reflecting today on how differently my life looked a year ago. Nick and I were at a point where we knew where we wanted to be, where God was calling us, and the dream He had planted was burning inside my heart. But we were just...

Guys, it just got real. 2020 has already been quite the year ?

After living in Hong Kong for five years, moving our family to Nick's small hometown in Midwestern USA was exactly what we were looking for.

Moving back to the US, specifically the area we chose, was no coincidence. Being the opposite of...

I remember hearing Nick talk about his family trips out to Colorado. They would road trip from home, find a good spot to camp, and would stay in tents for as long as his dad could manage to take off from work. They'd catch fish and make simple foods over campfires. They were some of the best vacations he could remember. When we moved back to the US after living in Hong Kong for five years, we were ready for a complete change in lifestyle. We had done the busy city life for too long (prior to Hong Kong we worked...
