The Book

If you live a live that’s crazy enough, people want to hear your story. So we wrote this book, and InterVarsity Press published it.

This Ordinary Adventure Cover

After our years with friends in Nicaragua, China, and South Africa, my wife, Chrissy, and I have been trying to figure out how to now live back in the U.S…

What should we do with our money?

Is it possible to avoid a maelstrom of busyness here?

How do we make friends?

What do we think about current events?

How do we offer extreme hospitality like we experienced overseas?

Can we still notice amazing things in our daily life?

How do we stay in love?

How do we keep from screwing up our kids?

This Ordinary Adventure: Settling Down Without Settling is available on Amazon. We have written a lot for Relevant and for other publications. Chrissy’s first book, Into the Mud: Inspiration for Everyday Activists, True Stories of Africa (Moody), illustrates issues of economic development through the stories of people we met there.

We share our journey and invite you along in the hard questions. May our fresh eyes and wrestling help you life a life that’s good for you and for others.
