Joseph’s theological input on our moving philosophy “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven.” PS this pic is taken in Swedish cemetery - a good reminder that all things are temporary.
When weekend plans of skiing, hiking up to hot springs and waking up to magical snowfall in the cabin fail because of non-stop rain, you go to Conservatory and pick out 🌵 #travelfail
“Rest is not the speed of your pace, but the posture of your heart.” – Mike Maeshiro ⬅️ such a good reminder!
PS. We were both sad that we missed our annual January trip to Quinault rain forest, so here's a throwback.
Getting excited to finish up with our remodel and move. Despite my heavy resistance to moving to Tacoma (😜) I am excited to have this view so close to us! #livelikethemountainisout

This quote sums up 2017 for us. We've had some of the most difficult moments this year and some were rewarding and beautiful. For all we give thanks and glory to Christ! Stepping into 2018 with gratitude, joy and hope! Happy New Year friends!
December has been a busy month for us with finally closing on a house, getting it ready for remodel and going through endless selections of floors, paint, tile, contractors, etc, etc, etc.... but I am looking forward to this weekend getaway to ring in NY with friends! #cheersto2018🥂
The mountains are calling and I can't go....
Big Four Ice Caves is an easy, extremely scenic 2.2 miles hike roundtrip. Go before the snow/avalanche season hits and the caves are snowed on.
May God revive the areas of your life where you've lost hope and expectancy. May you grow to believe on a whole new level that Jesus makes all things new! He can make something out of nothing! May you look up right now and dare to believe once again. God is on His throne. Jesus prays for you. And the Holy Spirit moves on faith. Don't let go of hope. Believe that God redeems. Rest in the reality of God's awesome love, power, and faithfulness. He'll do for you what you cannot do for yourself.
