It Begins

Pilgrimage:  noun
  1. a journey, especially a long one, made to some sacred place as an act of religious devotion:

So, last fall (2017) we felt this urge to sell everything to road trip the U.S. with our family.  That’s crazy……right?     But crazy or not, a year passed and we were still talking about it.  Recently, on my way to Nashville with a girlfriend, I told her what we’d been talking about.  I shared that I was praying that God would send me a sign.   If this was something we were really supposed to do, I needed a burning bush kind of sign.  Something clear & obvious.

Well, friends, I did not get a burning bush – but within hours of that specific prayer my friend and I checked into an Airbnb and in my bedroom, on the nightstand, sat this  vintage lunch box…..My Burning BushA picture of a family packed in a camper, and on the camper, a literal SIGN that says  “See America”.    How crazy weird is that?!?!?!?!?

And so……we’re going.  We don’t know where yet, but we’re going!

We know this is more than a road trip – it’s a Pilgrimage. God has something for us out there that will change us, bless others, and shape our kids in amazing ways.

The Lancaster’s are thrilled to launch this blog and share this adventure with all of you.  We ask that you pray for us, and we hope to hear from you along the way.

  3. Nathan and I talk all the time about doing this very thing. It’s a dream. Just haven’t figured out how to do it yet. I pray God blesses you on your journey and always keeps his protective hand on you and your family.

    1. You guys totally should. Start reading about people who are doing it. Start researching opportunities to make money while traveling. There are ways! If it’s your dream, you just move toward it one step at a time. And pray about it. God will lead you exactly where you’re supposed to be.

      Thank you for praying for us. That means so much.
