The Wife

Hi, I’m Jessica – a Jesus hippie wanna-be with a touch of an inner Monica.  I’ve been married for 14 years (since I was seventeen) to this guy I really super like.  We have four hilarious children, one girl and three boys. I have almost exclusively attended the University of Motherhood with a major in Procrastination.  I’m hoping to continue in this field with a Masters in Baby-Weight loss.  We’ve been a fairly nomadic family, what with Husband serving 8 years in the Air Force and all – We have called Georgia, Arizona, Germany, California, Maryland, and Canada home. Some how in all that we’ve managed to move 15 times in 14 years. And we’re planning to keep the nomadic lifestyle up with our future assignment to south Asia to pursue Bible Translation.


The Husband

Hey, my name is Jeremy.  I’ve moved around my whole life, and spent a good chunk of my childhood in Africa where my parents were missionaries.  Once out of high school I immediately decided the best thing to do was get married.  So I did that with my 17 year old girlfriend pictured above.  And so as not to get stuck in my home town, and to keep up my worldly travels, I joined the Air Force at 19.  But after nearly a decade God finally convinced me that Jesus wouldn’t have joined the military, so I got out.


We’re still trying to follow God, hoping to be on our way soon to work where we feel called, in south Asia.  The main theme that God has been showing me for the past several years is that our faith is a much simpler thing than what we’ve made it.  Our churches are distractions, and our disciples aren’t following Christ as much as they are traditions and colloquialisms.  So I’m trying to fix that in myself and grow along with anyone else who wants to get back to the basics and have a real relationship with God and his real church.


A bit about this site:

Oh, it’s mostly just the ramblings of a Christian, Blogging, Unschooling, Mother of Four, trying to embrace the Rumpus.  Likely to talk about Faith, doubt, and everything in between.   Also, we have come to appreciate a good paradigm shift.  So, please brace yourself, because this site can be a bit shifty like that.   With a healthy dose of sarcasm.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope that we can make you laugh.  And maybe think a little.
