Welcome to Our Goodwin Journey
Written by me, the mom in this Goodwin family.
I’m a normal life kinda girl at heart… give me a mug of coffee and a book and maybe even a beach and I’m pretty happy. Despite the very public nature of our lives, my introverted self craves quiet and small.
We live in West Africa and write this blog to allow you to experience the never-dull moments with us.
Other than our crazy adventures…
You can expect lots of family, marriage, faith, missions, parenting and travel tips, helps and encouragements meant to inspire you on your own journey.
You can expect a real glimpse of life on the field, the lessons we are learning and the things we discover along the way.
I promise if you follow along, you sure won’t be bored. I know I’ll be down-right tired!
This is my super cute, very outdoorsy, adventurous, quite hilarious and always great blog material husband of 15 years… Jeremy.
He loves the woods, hunting, fishing, growing out his beard, catching bugs (and eating bugs!), finding morel mushrooms, cooking wild game, making a mess in the kitchen, browsing outdoorsmen stores and living life to the full. He is level 2 certified for scuba diving and can hold his breath for 4 minutes during free diving, which honestly scares me to death!
We’re kinda in love… a little.
Together, we have lived on three continents, run the Paris marathon and continue to make every day an adventure.
We have three very precious girls—Elayna (13), Annalise (11) and Abigail (10). These girls keep me on my toes and inspire me daily with their creativity, courage and determination.
We have a puppy named Alexander Rush Goodwin, West African born and oh so cute.
But really, this journey isn’t about us. It is about a story that God is weaving through us.
A story that we can journey together.
