“Your Word is a Lamp for my feet, a Light for my path.” Psalm 119:105

I’ve been blessed with a wandering spirit, and before I turned 25, I’d traveled to most of the United States, parts of Canada, and Mexico. God also blessed me with a career that allowed me to see much of America, which further soothed my wanderlust. For my 50th birthday, I wanted to visit Italy, but with no travel companion available, I strapped on a backpack and headed off for this adventure alone with God as my guide.

What I found was the most miraculous journey. When it’s you alone, in a foreign land, with your only reliance on God, it is one of the most impactful Spiritual journeys. He revealed to me things I would not have seen. He connected me to people in a way I had never realized. I now crave that connection so much that I plan to move my life into an RV and travel wherever He leads me.

His Word has given me direction, strength, companionship, motivation, and comfort as I walk through all parts of my life, but I feel it the most when exploring all parts of this great world He’s created. He has much to reveal to us, and life is short. Let’s explore it together as He lights the way…
