Searching for Sustenance

$1,815 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 52 months
The beckoning counts, not the clicking latch behind you. –Freya Stark

Our family is hitting the road! Though traditional academia and local church ministry have contributed much to who we are, we realize that they confine our wider vision for our family and our world. So, we are selling our home and leaving our jobs behind to follow the beckoning…wherever it may lead.

The purpose of this year is to discern what vocational steps to take next in our lives. By living in different beautiful places, learning new skills, and thoughtfully considering our life goals, we hope to complete the year prepared to open a small retreat center with an organic garden. The skills we develop throughout this year will better equip us to achieve our future goals, and practicing these skills along the way will help us discern whether this is the best path forward for our family.

Your donations will enable us to pay monthly expenses as we prepare for this new phase of our lives. Additionally, we will use 10% of all donations to "pay it forward" in each of the locations we find ourselves over the next year.

We will be campground hosting in Vermont and Virginia in the fall and will head west in January 2016. As plans become more complete, we will update this page. You can also follow our blog (Searching for Sustenance) to see how the adventure unfolds!

Thanks for your support! Every bit helps.
