As a grand opening of sorts for Barefoot Walks, I will be giving away a $50 American Express gift card to a lucky commenter. Use it to bless someone in your life, use it for a family vacation or outing, use it however you desire.
What is Barefoot Walks you ask? Step on over to the menu pages at the top of the page to read About Me, Why Barefoot Walks, and Traditions.
Barefoot Walks is all about the journey to create moments, memories, experiences, and traditions with your family. It’s about recognizing the moments that are right before our eyes. It’s reaching out and grabbing them before they slip away. It is a journey, a walk, we can take together to inspire and encourage one another. It’s a step at a time.
This walk is not just for those of us in the child rearing stage of life or just those of us with children. Grandparents, aunts and uncles, empty nesters, we want you to take this walk with us. This stroll is for anyone who desires to create moments, create memories, capture hearts, and invest in the lives of the ones they love. When you invest this time, you are providing security, stability, acceptance, and strength to the individual, which they will carry on to their own families one day.
Barefoot Walks is an attempt to help you (and me) focus on the joy in the moments we are given. Focusing on the simple things, the beautiful things this life has to offer. Joy is all around us. Joy is a choice. Even when life looks messy, beauty is there, waiting to be discovered beneath the mess, dusted off, and beheld. You will be my accountability partner. I promise to be genuine, truthful, and authentic with you. I can’t write from the heart if I’m not living it out. I fail time after time. I mess up constantly. Thankfully, there is grace and mercy from our Heavenly Father. And though I feel unworthy and ill-equipped to write or to inspire, the Lord has laid it on my heart.
Through Barefoot Walks I hope to encourage you in your quest to spend time with your loved ones. Therefore, I vow not to post something that will take you 30 minutes to read. I will not fill your inbox with more resources than you have time to muddle through. I want you living, experiencing, creating, loving, and making the most of every single moment our Lord gives us. I will try not to post more than twice a week, unless you beg for more of course 🙂
My prayer is that my blog will not become a distraction to your moments.
So, let’s take a little barefoot walk together, shall we? Each step along our walk leaves a footprint. Our footprints create a path to a legacy. When we reach our destination, we can look back on the richness of the moments in our past with a sense of peace and satisfaction rather than regrets and sadness.
It’s never too late to start your barefoot walk. Let me repeat: It is never too late. Even if you have adult children. Even if you have grandkids. It doesn’t matter. We all have moments in our life to behold. We all have people who love us and we love back.
