Travel Brings Online Friendships to LIFE!

If you’ve heard my podcast, Destination: Inspiration, here on the Ultimate Homeschool Radio Network before, you know I LOVE travel. Not just for the adventure and excitement, but truly for building world changers.

And, I guess I’ve traveled so much that I consider myself one of those world changers. I really don’t fit in a box, and travel helps me express my identity. I believe it can help form yours, and those of your children. (Keep reading ’til the bottom to see how YOU can have an amazing travel experience, too!)

It really is my life’s purpose to inspire others, and to get them to GO! After all, Jesus said “Go!” into all the world and share the good news! Even though we “homeschool,” He tells us to GO! This burning passion fueled me to found the new Non-Profit Social Enterprise, Word Traveling.

Throughout all of the significance and blessings experienced through travel, none can compete with forming strong relationships. In fact, I met Felice, our visionary and founder here at UHSRN while traveling! And, we’ve met together in person since then- traveling!

This past weekend, I was blessed to sponsor and attend the 2:1 conference, especially for other homeschool bloggers.

Though the keynotes and blogging tips were fantastic, nothing was more impactful than the prayer and real friendships we were able to continue, and begin, “IRL” (in real life!) I met so many blogging mentors, sisters and friends, continued to develop friendships from  last year’s travel, and was even able to meet my fabulous media director, Amy,  in person for the first time, I’m only bummed we forgot to take a picture together!

Perhaps some of the most special are those ladies I got to hug in person that have become dear sisters through this network. After all, it’s really God’s network. And it yours. And He values family.That means we are family, too!
