About

Welcome to our wonderful world

We are a young, fun-loving, crazy, disciple-making, intentional, home-schooling, adventure-seeking, purpose-pursuing family living in the heart of Jozi yet trying to do life at our own pace.

This blog is about sharing our stories, our thoughts, our experiences, our lives; hoping that they will help, encourage and inspire other families out there.....as we all do this adulting thing :)
