I never do good with transitions. It doesn’t matter what the transition is, it might be a very good change, but it still always feels difficult. There is something odd about leaving what you know and stepping into something new.Read More
Justin and Katy’s Adventure Log
Journaling The Chosen Gen Adventure
Following Jesus, no matter where he leads, is quite the adventure. We are on this journey alongside each one of you. Keeping a strong marriage, raising (and homeschooling) five kids, and founding a ministry are the missions God has us living right now. Follow along on our personal adventure and see what God's been teaching us.
My first born son has taken up wood carving as a hobby. He was inspired to start when we stayed at a family friend’s home and saw all the amazing wood carvings throughout the place done by the friend. Since Christmas, when he received some wood carving tools, he has been working on his first project – a chickadee. Over time, he has been showing me the progress he has been making, taking a square block of wood and slowly shaping it nicely into a bird. This is the last update I had seen on the project.Read More

Would we have faith or fear?Read More
Justin and I started running.
It’s not at all fun.
We both signed up for a 10K race this fall for one reason: to push ourselves to develop perseverance in our lives. We’ve learned that you don’t just wake up one morning with unlimited energy and determination to live a life on mission. No, it takes training yourself to do hard things.Read More
If you like to imagine us as a perfect family where our kids are nicely behaved and Justin and I always parent the way we should, stop reading this post. For those of you who want the truth, keep reading! Haha.Read More
