Justin and Katy’s Adventure Log
Following Jesus is quite the adventure. The Adventure Log is our personal journal of the Chosen Gen journey God has our family walking.

It took years of God’s moving and transforming to get us to this point, but here we are at the trailhead taking our first steps down the path, acknowledging that we know very little about what lies ahead of us. But, do you know what’s really exciting? Our kids are joining us on this spiritual adventure. What an incredible joy to be able to do this together as a family!Read More

Would we have faith or fear?Read More
