The Radical Road
We are on a path and a purpose to see the country, hear its pulse and bring a voice to those who are hidden. Reaching people where they are at without leaving them there. We will show you life on the road and the radical stories of real America.
Two people that were guided together by God in his perfect timing. We both were praying for God to give us “our” someone to do the rest of our life with. We met at the end of 2015 and married in 2018. Combined we have 3 adult, beautiful, healthy children. We are both extremely adventurous, active people and have never loved living what most consider a conventional life. We are very curious and purposeful learners. Our life values and principles are based on our relationship with Jesus and his Word. We both have made our fair share of mistakes and have lived blessed, yet sometimes messy lives.
It has shaped us into who we are called to be for God as a married couple. We are all but perfect, but we strive to live in balance for Jesus in every area of our life. We love serving God and serving and loving on people. We focus on what we have and not on what we don’t have. Gratefulness is the true key to living a joyful life.
