Family means unconditional love, dedication to each other, striving to be our best for each other regardless of our faults.. no one is perfect, me especially! I’m not really sure what I did to deserve this perfectly imperfect life, but I am so grateful! Our little unit is filled with so much love and happiness through good times and bad! My goal everyday is to give my beautiful wife and daughter the best life possible.. I only want to see them happy! Family isn’t about DNA or where you came from, it’s about the people you come home to everyday, who love you after that long hard day.. who greet me with hugs and kisses, who thank me for working so hard everyday! Being a full-time working mom brings so much mom guilt. The feeling that I’m missing so much of my daughters life to care for others as a nurse. Feeling so bad when Brittney needs an extra hand, but I’m not able to be there because of work. Having a supportive family gets me through everyday. They push me to be the best version of myself for not just me, but for them too! Family is made up of love and Hailey Rae you have so much love! Your Mommy and Mama love you so much and we want you to always feel that happy, warm, unconditional love! My sweet wife Brittney, you are so strong and my rock. I couldn’t do this without you and together we will make it through anything my love! This is family! Love is love! I will forever be grateful for my wild, Disney-loving, happy dancing, adventure seeking, perfectly imperfect family! We just want to show the world that families come in all different forms and at the end of the day love is all that matters! ❤️ .

As a mother of five and a Special Education teacher, service is naturally integral to my life. In living out our vocation to marriage, my husband and I worked to raise our children with awareness of the needs of others and demonstrating hospitality to all who crossed our paths.
The rubber met the road regarding this philosophy when, just a few months after we returned to Houston following a career transition, our new community was devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Initially, we had the opportunity to welcome a family into our home for several days. Soon we were out preparing hundreds of buckets of cleaning supplies with our church family, and learning the messy art of demolition & gutting of homes. Our children continued this mission focus through everyday service to their households and bigger experiences such as our son serving as a campus missionary, our oldest daughter through NET ministries campus missionary work in Minnesota, and our middle daughter serving this summer on a mission trip to Guatemala. While these big experiences leave lasting impressions, it’s the everyday service that binds our family to each other and our communities.

My absolute favorite family tradition is coming up... the “Night of All Nights”. It’s going to be a challenge this year, but we are up for it. We love to go to Christmas Eve services and see how many we can attend in one night. We will accept no less than three, but the most we have ever managed is 5. We look up service times across the city, map out which ones to go to at what time and have even been known to eat dinner in the car. I love it because it is something we decided to do for fun when it was just hubby and me alone for Christmas. Instead of sitting at home alone we celebrated with others at extra services. Now we love to expose our kids to different traditions and thoughts and perspectives.

Starwars vs. Disney Princess karaoke ...
Get you a FAMILY that does both!
It doesn't matter what we do, as long as we are together it's the perfect day. That's the beauty of family. We celebrate each other's successes...sometimes that means a job promotion or sometimes that means finishing all our veggies. We support each other when things are hard ... Sometimes that means a challenging day at work or sometimes that means we can't find our fuzzy blanket.
It doesn't matter what it is, we will always be there for each other.
To quote 4 year old Kylie, "I'll always love you. I'll never stop loving you no matter what. I'll love you for a million billion days". ♥️♥️
What is kindness Kindness is holding a dying patients hand while they take their last breath. Or kindness may be giving a homeless man something to eat because that is the only thing he has had for several days. I show kindness every day in my career as a nurse. I'm willing to go the extra mile for my patients, as well as my co-workers. Kindness to me is a way of life and its who I am. Kindness is not just being "nice" to someone. Kindness starts with yourself, with your morals and values. I work hard to also teach my son that he must be "kind" to everyone he meets. If I can instill those same values into his life, I will have done something right ❤❤

🇧🇸 BAHAMAS 🇧🇸 Surrounding our children with LOVE... and dolphins! 🐬💙 (✔️off the Bucket List! Day 2 Disney Dream Cruise Vlog, link in bio)
THIS is the exact reason why we work so hard. To not just give them the world, but show them the world. We want to provide our children with opportunities & memories they could only dream of having. We are fueled with inspiration & have already started our vision board for 2020! So excited for what’s to come!
Never stop dreaming.. 💭 There is no dream too big! Who else loves vision boards What’s on your Bucket List
1. the emotions or conduct of friends; the state of being friends.
Friendship to me means having people who love you no matter what be there to support you through your life no matter where geographically you are. My best friend is my not-so-little, little brother Dylan. I value his friendship above all others. He also happens to be my favorite travel companion. We have traveled a lot over the span of our lives however there is still more to see. If I could go to Europe with my brother it would mean not only getting some quality time with him but it would also mean getting to explore new and exciting places together. It would be beyond amazing to go on a bucket list trip to do things like; see tulips in Amsterdam, sing along to the Sound of Music in Austria, and get chocolate in Belgium! •

Ok last one... #Service is about connection. This is Azure Kwame, one of my best friends. I met him when I was serving in Ghana. He so quickly became my biggest supporter, advocate, and friend. We would spend our mornings working on the school building project together and our afternoons walking through town and eating #fufu. If you can’t tell, I truly owe my life to service. It all started in Sunday school when I had to do mandatory service. Then in university when I joined a national service fraternity. Then after when I left the US to serve in Ghana for two years. Who knows where service will take me from here. All I know is that I have service to thank for my friends, my current career, and heck, even my future husband, Kobby!
In the spirit of Christmas... go out and see what service can do for you AND others. It can be small. You can buy a cup of coffee for someone having a bad day. Or it can be big. You can sign up to leave your home for 2 years! Whatever it is, be of service.

I stopped taking straws and just used the same one over&over. One day my friend said, hey I have a metal straw you can have. Also, living in Utah we don’t have a beach but we have lakes and we made it a goal for 2020 to take 3 pieces of trash out when we leave our lakes. But when we go to the beach we will also do the same. Thank you!! #christmasbucketlistfamily #bucketlistfamily ❤️💜
I cannot WAIT to see these kids in 2 days. 💕
They are my biggest joy and happiest times. @thebucketlistfamily .
This family is so full of love. No matter what shows up in their lives, loving each other and EXPRESSING that love is the top priority. So many hugs and so many kisses when I go home. So many FaceTimes. Family family family. I can’t wait to be back to have our breakfast dates :) @southwestair @marriottbonvoy @raycayebelize .
The littlest one, Ariella, is the epitome of JOY! Her life centers around making others and herself smile and laugh. I don’t understand how so much humor can reside in such a small little body. @solitudemountain .
We are always exploring outside, taking trips to the nature center, and learning about HOW and WHY we need to take care of our mama earth. These kids life and respect nature because they feel it’s energy and joy daily. Carson is going to be our little scientist one day taking care of the planet 🐳🕷🐍🦧 @discoversoneva .
These kids are BRAVE and in love with WILDLIFE. (See that picture of them holding the snake) I can’t wait for them to see lions and elephants one day 🐘 they love animals and love getting as close as they can. Exploring the woods for critters and bugs is a goooood day. @taasalodge .
Evelyn is the bravest of them all. She will take on any adventure if you give her a smile and encouraging word. I think you could even get her to jump off of a cliff or two if you went with her 😉 @fijivacations
These kids are kind and grateful for every one and thing they have. They are lucky in so many ways but push through so many obstacles as well, with love and bravery they conquer all in their path. My brother is the best dad to these kids and I’m so proud of all of them!!!
@thebucketlistfamily Your kindness means everything to me. They way you are with your family makes me live a better life with my family. No one knows kindness like yall!!! My husband is close behind, he is a small business owner, selling tires at Jennings tire! Always kind and helping people when they need it, never saying no. He deserves this.more then anyone! It would be a dream to take our family on this once in a lifetime trip! We've been together for 11 years and finally got married this September!!! #bucketlistfamily @andbeyondmnemba #kindness #dreams
#bucketlistfamily is doing a 12 days of Christmas giveaway!
How am I brave
What’s the bravest thing I’ve done
Moving away from all of my friends and family 7 years ago took all of my bravery. After exploring the US with one of my best friends and returning home, I decided to go back to CA because of their inexpensive in state college tuition. Moving by myself was difficult and lonely, but I stuck with it. This past May I received my associates degree from Mesa college, and applied to SDSU! The bravery it took to leave home helped me gain CA residency, and pursue my goal of becoming a teacher! 🤗
Since we started our little family adventure last year we've visited, New Glarus (WI), Norway (IL), Morroco (IN), Holland (MI), Dublin (OH), Stockholm (WI), and Havana (IL). Maybe one day soon we'll get to adventure farther from home, but for now we are grateful for the memories we've made, the special towns we've seen, and the awesome people we've met! Plus, I think our family selfie game is getting pretty strong! 😂 Here's to more adventure in 2020! ❤❤❤

For those of you who aren’t follow the @thebucketlistfamily, I strongly suggest you do. They are an inspiring and brilliant family that travels the world. For Christmas this year they are giving away 12 trips.
Each trip has a theme associated with it. When going through the trips and themes, the kids and I chose “gratitude” for our first and “bravery” as our second.
I look at my 10 year old daughter and 6 year old son and think to myself; “When I was their age, my biggest concern was whether I was going to wear my yellow or red shoes to school that day”
I’m shocked, proud and saddened about the amount of bravery these children had to face the past many years.
We’re praying to win, And if we don’t, we shall be happy for the families that have won. #bucketlistchristmas @thebucketlistfamily @fijivacations #adventure #travel #winners #bucketlistfamily #contest #fijiislands
