For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jer. 29:11
Life on the Road
God's goodness keeps us humble; His grace keeps us grounded and everyone's loving support keeps us going!
Our journey began in 1996 when my husband stepped into the world of Construction in Asheville, NC where we lived for over a year. That leap of faith started a career of a lifetime for him and continues to pave life on the road for us. When that job ended, we took the opportunity to relocate for the second time, to a little town close to Pittsburg, PA. Little did we know then what God had in store for us. From there our life began to take on a form of its own which continues to create a very satisfying "mobile lifestyle". After countless moves, thousands of miles traveled, and two homeschooled children later, this way of life has shaped and transformed us into who we are today.

Nathan's career has provided us with the privilege of traveling for over 26 years now. With all the moves we're made, people met, and places seen, I can honestly say, "life is a highway" and what a ride it's been so far. There have been ups and downs, curves and twists, smooth and rough terrain ahead, however the most important thing we've found that never changes is knowing who is in control of it all. As tough as this life can get sometimes, having our faith "in tow" makes all the difference. The second important thing we rely on is our love for one another. Regardless of where, when, how, or why, living off love continues to fuel us as individuals and a family unit. Being called to go, takes action and God's provision hasn't failed us yet. Our family's top priority requires keeping us together at all cost and homeschooling gives us that freedom. Both lifestyles afford us the most precious gift available on this earth, time.
Life on the road and across the sea, has taken us to so many amazing, one of a kind and must visit destinations such as the Florida Keys, mountains of TN, coastal Virginia, all the way to Pittsburg, PA and every state in between including the gorgeous islands of the Northern Pacific. The multitude of connections made with such fun loving, amazingly sweet and inviting people to have made a tremendous impact on our lives and has altered us forever. Having the opportunity to experience different cultures, traditions, and cultural influences has been our favorite so far! Not to mention excellent eating within the various small towns, cities, country, and island favorites! We LOVE to eat on the road or off! When we share with people, friends and family about the next "big" move and our nomadic lifestyle, they either think we are crazy or are content vicariously living their desires of traveling through us.
So, grab a seat! We are honored you have chosen to come along for the ride. May you find joy in the unknown and hope within these pages of our life's journey and experiences. We are truly blessed with the opportunity to travel and share this amazing lifestyle with those living life on purpose, with passion and look forward to crossing paths with you.
Thank you for joining us on another adventure down the road less traveled. We look forward to sharing our experiences of God's goodness with you while creating a better life together.
Our family is our home!
Give Him Glory,
The Raycroft Family
