Today is Day 7 of our fast and prayer. In 34 days we will be packed up and on the road in our 36-foot travel trailer with our 4 kids. We will hit the road on an epic business and personal adventure around the outer edge of the US.

It is also for those that attend church, the first Sunday of Advent. Advent is a way the early church developed to help people prepare their hearts for one of the most important Christian holidays. Advent is a time of preparation, and it literally means “coming.” It counts down the Sundays till we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the child who came to change everything. Children are a great example to us during this time as they anticipate the coming of gifts under the tree. It is with this same anticipation that we look to both the birth of Jesus and the hope in His second coming where He makes all things new.

Would you please join us in prayer today as we anticipate and wonder how Jesus will invite us, the path we will take, and the memories that will be made. Our anticipation is high and so are our hopes.
