OUR PLAN- WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DO A CRAZY THING LIKE THIS?!!
|Family Unity||Our society has individuals in the family
going every direction at breakneck speed. We're looking forward to
working together at a common goal apart from the pressures of "normal"
|Spiritual Growth and Faith Journey||We don't have everything planned. We
are looking at this as a faith journey where we will rely on God and see
his goodness and provision in our daily travels.
|Break "Normal" Life Patterns||It's easy to get into patterns and ruts
that can take over your whole life. Who knows what different turns
we might take given the opportunity to break out of the "norm".
|Realizing a Dream||The kids may not share the same dreams as
we do, but we want to teach them to pursue life dreams and go after them
deliberately, but with gusto. It would be so sad to come to the
end of life with regrets because dreams haven't been pursued.
|Visiting Different Ministries||We want the kids to experience the
different ways that people apply their faith to serving God with their
ministries and vocations.
|Experiential Education||Can there be a better way to study history
than to stand on a battlefield or study geology than to stand in the midst of
God's handiwork in the Grand Canyon?
|Appreciate the USA||The media is constantly
bombarding us with the
negatives of our country. We have a wonderful country
and admirable heritage. We'll experience this first hand!
|Learn People's Stories||Everyone has a story. One of our
goals is to hear people's stories from all walks of life.
|Memories for Generations||The memories, growth, and life changes we encounter on this adventure will affect not only us, but generations of Kirkwoods to come!|
