Why It Is Important For Us to Travel as a Family

When we decided to travel full time as a family, we knew that we would have some family and friends concerned about our decision. We knew not everyone would understand why Scott doesn’t just travel without us and then come home in between disasters and church visits.  There are lots of reasons we want to travel as a family.

I dreamed of being someone who would make an impact on the world and…
