Today I had the privilege of writing a guest post for Michael Boyink over at his blog Ditching Suburbia. In it I talk about the process we took in downsizing from our 5 bedroom/5 acre home into our 5th wheel. I also share how we narrowed down our clothing, toys and kitchen gadgets. Can you guess which 5 appliances made the cut? Click over to find out. While you are there, take a look around. He has a lot of great resources for families seeking to live uncommon lives.
Fun fact: I found Michael’s blog after listing to an interview that he and his wife Crissa gave over at the Family Adventure Podcast a few years ago. In it I learned that Michael’s family has been living full-time in an RV since 2010! At the time we were still in the deep trenches of waiting. Our faith and trust was being tested by a stagnant situation with our house which was on the market. In fact, the exact same day that Michael and Crissa’s interview was posted, I wrote this post in which I talked about what I was learning concerning living in that gap between the dream being given and the fulfillment of the dream. Today I am feeling so blessed to be on the fulfillment side of that gap.
