Faith & FamilyOur Story Part I: The Foundation March 13, 2017 I’ve been so excited to kick this series off with y’all! As I said in my New Year’s post, I’ve become really aware that I’ve never shared our story here. I believe that stories are so important! It’s been so powerful to really look back at ours and see God’s hand constantly at work. Our story and the adventure God’s placed us on are the motivation for every decision we make and for so much of what you guys see here on the blog! In community groups at our church, one key event is everyone sharing their life story. It’s so important to see where everyone came from, to celebrate the work God’s done with each other, and to also learn from each other’s journey. It feels like the right time to break down our story for y’all and share ore about who we are and why we do what we do. In this series, I’ll be sharing a new video each Monday where I tell a part of our story. Throughout this, you’re going to hear details about why we renovate, our debt journey, the blog developing, our family growing, the list goes on and on. All of those pieces are so interwoven for us. Sharing some of these details in such a public way can be scary, but so many other families’ stories helped shape ours, so I hope that hearing ours can send some of you on your own radical and amazing journeys! And sharing it celebrates the impossible and unbelievable work we’ve seen God do. Just filming these for you guys and reminiscing over what’s happened blows my mind and spurs me on so much in our journey! If you didn’t watch the New Year’s video, check it out first because it’s a really great introduction to this series and what you can expect from it as a whole. I really considered waiting to film these until after the baby comes…you’ll see I’m about to pop in this! We should be meeting him in three or four weeks…ish. Crazy! But, so much is happening over here, y’all, and now’s the time to launch into it! Okay, y’all, let’s get started! Thanks so much for tuning into Our Story Part I: The Foundation! I loved sharing this and can’t wait until next Monday to share the next piece of the journey. If you have any questions, please e-mail me or comment below depending on what you’re comfortable with! I want to use our trials and story to help others in any way I can. So many did that for us. Thanks for listening, y’all, and for being such a support system for us!
