To everything – turn, turn, turn. There is a season – turn, turn, turn. And a time to every purpose under heaven. Cheryl and I found a new purpose this year, sharing our life, our love for life and life lessons we stumble upon along the way.

Life hasn’t been so easy for Cheryl and I this year. But in no way do we have the right to complain. We have each other, we have great extended families, we have awesome kids, a house to live in and I have a good job. Never the less, every season brings new joy and new challenges.

We’re not done growing, we haven’t figured everything out yet but we are determined to keep growing, learning and sharing our experiences and life strategies with you.
