Welcome to our Log. We started this blog in 2012 to chronicle the adventures of a family of six as we sell everything and move onto a converted bus for a while. The house finally sold and we are on our way!
Our family made the decision to do away with most of our ties to “normal” life. We scaled down, sold off nearly all our stuff (including our house) in exchange for freedom. Changing our paradigm (and maybe yours too!) of walking in faith, the meaning of ‘success’, and what we want to pour into our children. Focusing now on what is most important to us–loving and serving God and people. We have been blessed with the opportunity to take a bus that has been converted into a mobile living space and adventure for a while. Trusting that God will lead us as we learn to slow down, simplify, and enjoy the scenery as we meander along in all that we do.
Tonight its raw. The rain, the cold. To be quite honest, I’m feeling the same way–raw. Sore throat, cough, headache, tired. Craving a change. For the past month we’ve been stomping around our old stomping grounds on the east side … Continue reading
We are now moving into our 6th month of living full-time in the bus. It has been amazing to this point. If the bus were to burn to the ground tomorrow it would have been worth every penny and moment … Continue reading

We named the bus. While in Michigan, we learned that their Mackinac Island was named after some Native American word for “big turtle”. Michillimackinac, to be exact. We had been contemplating the Czech word for turtle–Zelva, but Sean is pretty … Continue reading
It would be a pretty bland experience if everything was sweet all the time. Fortunately we’ve had our share of bus drama to spice things up a bit recently. Let’s start with something to wet our whistle. What you see … Continue reading
My heart is so full from the last month. We had planned to be in Texas because Sean had work there in October that we knew about, but another show got added on and we had to make an adjustment. … Continue reading
Way back in Michigan I agreed to run a 5k race with Greg during the month we would be in Boone. I had been walking a lot back then and figured I had just over a month to whip … Continue reading
Greg and Marcia Harris are some pretty special people to us with an interesting story to tell. We met them at our home church in Wilmington. They had sold everything–including their dream home that they built themselves–and moved their … Continue reading
I can scarcely believe we’ve been in Boone, NC for nearly a month. Pretty much our days have been filled with two things: time spent with dear friends Greg and Marcia and school. The setting has been ideal–Honey Bear Campground … Continue reading
Our next stop in Ohio was Strongsville, just outside of Cleveland. We have been itching to see our dear friends Dawn and Jeremy. It’s been over ten years since I saw Dawn and way longer than that since Sean and … Continue reading
