Restoration in the Making

Many of you know that I work with a fantastic organization called Redeemed Ministries. They are a non-profit that works with human trafficking victims and runs a long term residential program that allows survivors to have a safe place to heal. I've posted many times before about them. For example here, here and here.

We are one year old!

August 4th, Jared and I uploaded our very first blog post. Who knew if we would have many readers or viewers. But it was a creative outlet for Maddie to hone her video skills and a fun way to share our escapades with friends and family.

365 days later, it's pretty remarkable how much has changed. And 365 days from now, it will be even more different. Not 

Thank you for coming on this journey with us. Here's to many more adventures to come!

Nube Stratos: Unboxing and Initial Impressions!

A few months ago, we posted about how much we love our Nube from Sierra Madre Research and how it is our preferred camping shelter for our trips. However, we also mentioned that Sierra Madre Research was coming out with a new model that they called the Stratos. We preordered and it finally came! Watch our unboxing and our initial impressions below!

Breaking2

Over the weekend, Nike with three elite runners attempted to run the marathon in under two hours. Something people say is impossible.

Never mind that I usually haven't event broken 13.1 by the two hour mark. These people are FAST.

Even if you are not a runner, here's some pretty amazing takeaways that we can apply to our lives as we try to do the impossible.

Disney Dark Side: Day 3

Sunday was Half Marathon day! We woke up bright and early but thankful for the approved walk path to the start line from the Polynesian. Instead of having to wake up at 3:00 AM, we got to "sleep in" until 4:15 and we were on our way by 4:45. Felt like a Disneyland race...
