| Quail Ridge Park | Wentzville, Missouri | Family Session | Wakes + Slaters |

Slaters and Wakes | Family | Quali Ridge Park20-1.jpg

A few weeks back, my sister and her little family visited my husband and I for what will be the last time for a long while. While they were here, we decided to go to Quail Ridge Park and have a mini family session!

You see, my sister, brother in-law and niece are getting ready to move away from Southern Indiana to Portland, Oregon. Curious as to why? Well, they’re planting a church called FRNTR MVMT. The thing is, they aren’t doing it alone. They’re doing it with a group of their closest friends, those near and dear to their hearts. It sounds like quite the undertaking, doesn’t it?

A lot of people think they’re crazy. Crazy for moving when they have a little one. Crazy for uprooting where they are to start over. Crazy for having enough Faith to know that God is going to provide for them in big ways. Crazy for moving into an unknown season of life.

See, that’s the thing. It’s natural to only think that what we know, is what’s right. That the unknown isn’t good, that it isn’t something you should pour yourself into. That’s where we are wrong though – it’s when everything is risked, that things begin to be clear. You can see what really matters, what is important and what isn’t.

I don’t think they’re crazy. I think they’re bold. Bold in their faith, bold in their decisions and bold in their relationships. So many things here in 2017 wouldn’t even exist if there weren’t bold people. People that risked it all, took a leap of faith and poured their heart into what they’re passionate about. I think that’s what we all need to do – be bold and passionately pursue what we are called to do.

Yes, I’m sad that they’re moving. But my joy and pride of them and their decisions supersedes my sadness. So, may we all be bold. May we all have faith and may we all pursue something with so much passion that we aren’t in fear of the unknown.

Here’s to you, Sam and Kelsey. To your mission, your team and your calling.

Cheers,

Allison
