  • As a dependent in the military, travel in my lifestyle has been a constant experience. When you pack your belongings and move away to a new place every three years in a routine fashion, it begins to become apparent that no city, state, or even country is any more exciting than the next.

  •               After a twenty-eight hour bus ride, I stepped down onto solid ground. It was great to finally be at our destination in New Orleans, Louisiana. I was there with my Michigan church youth group to be involved in the National Youth Gathering, or NYG, which is a gathering of Lutheran high...

  • I'm proud to be an Army brat. Based on my father's assignment, I move to a new location every two to three years. I've lived all over the United States, but my most memorable home was in Ansbach, Germany. That's where I met the world. Before we moved to Europe, I never really appreciated foreign...

  • It was 4:30 a.m. on a quiet July morning. My family and I were traveling south towards Charleston, S.C.  While it seemed that the world was still asleep, I was WIDE AWAKE! As I peered out of the window into the darkness, I could hardly contain my excitement about the pictures I could take while...

  • “Is it even legal for a motel to be in this bad of shape?!” That was the first thing out of my mouth as we pulled up to the sketchiest shack I’ve ever seen in my life. My mom and I were road tripping from our home in Colorado to Vermont and we were trying to find a place to stay for the night in...
