Brave Adventure

Brave Adventure

We had the MOST amazing time on our short vacation to Vermont a few weeks ago. I thought about sharing it here, but I've decided to keep it private. Not because anything crazy happened, but because it was so precious to me, such a beautiful time to revitalize, that it feels almost sacred (almost). Maybe I'll share it later, but for now I love that the husband and I have something that was just for us and continues to be just us. 

One thing we talked about was how we wanted the year 2015 to be different from 2014. We decided on two words that we wanted to define this year. Brave. Adventure. While part of me wants this to mean that we are going to go backpacking or do something insane, but that's not exactly what that means. The life we have been given is an adventure! But we spend so much of it not embracing the adventure. We spend too much time "getting by" or "surviving". I think there's still going to be a good amount of that, we are making an effort to embrace and chase adventure. Whether it's exploring a local park, going to the zoo, camping in the backyard, or whatever, we want to find adventure in the very day. We want to enjoy the adventure God has set before us. 

But we also want to be brave. We want to step out in faith, we want to make relationships where it may be scary, we want to give, we want to teach, we want to spread the Gospel, we want to obey God, and do all things in a brave way. We are going to step outside our comfort zone and be brave in all aspects of life. I know that it will not be perfect, but this is the goal. We want to know Christ more fully, make relationships completely, and enjoy our family! 

Will you join us on the brave adventure (#braveadventure) and share how it changes your life?

  1. love this, Claire! We are in a boat similar to yours with three kids within 38 months. So, lots of times life is just about surviving...for me at least, Raul seems to be able to handle the kids and have a blast taking them anywhere and everywhere without a thought.:) anyways though...love what you and Cal talked about and so thankful for your amazing time together...great way to begin a new year. #braveadventure!
