Our 3-year-old was talking to one of her friends on the phone this week: “Our plan is to sell our house, live in an RV, and help lots of people and all of the kids who don’t have food.”
She said it so confidently, so excitedly. She said it with sparkling eyes, with adventure in her voice, with faith in her heart.
Tim and I looked at each other, smiling, scared, “Are we really going to do this?”
The answer practically leapt from our hearts, “We can’t NOT do this.”
As it stands right now, we have the American Dream – a comfortable house in a suburban neighborhood, two cars, two kids, two masters degrees, good jobs, close friends.
Yet, every night for the past two years, Tim and I stay up late and talk about how the world is hurting – how people are poor, sick, lonely, uncertain, hungry, helpless, and hopeless.
We know – without a shadow of a doubt – that we can’t just sit here. We won’t.
This week, we jumped off of a cliff…to the unknown.
Our house is officially “For Sale.”
You heard the plan already. Sell everything. Buy an RV. Travel the country. Give – every day. (And learn every day).
We’ll be chronicling our journey here on the blog – as we sell our things, figure out full-time RVing (Health insurance! Permanent mailing addresses! Laundromats! Oh my!), and – eventually – hit the road.
We hope you’ll subscribe to our feed or sign up to receive new blog posts via e-mail. We hope you’ll tell your friends on Facebook and Twitter and in real life about the crazy family who is giving up everything to gain something bigger than everything. The more people that know, the more people we can help – together.
We look forward to getting to know you better. Perhaps in the not-so-distant-future, we’ll be stopping in at your town.
