This blog is an honest, open sharing of my heart as I journey through
this crazy, sacred, grace-filled life. I’m married to Wesley and we
have four amazing children – ages 13, 11, 10, and 2.
Ours is a humble story where we’ve learned over and over again why we
NEED a Saviour. One day we whispered dreams of living in a little
country house where we could chop wood and grow a vegetable garden. It seemed like
a complete impossibility. Now, we are beyond filled with joy to live
in our little (barely 900 square feet) 100-year-old country home nestled beside farmlands on one
side and a rushing river on the other. And yes, we chop wood. And the garden is a work in progress…
In our neighbourhood there are chicks and chickens and streams and woodlands…
The whole Unplugged thing came upon us naturally. God has revealed
truth to us in baby steps and our hearts have radically changed with
regard to our view of this crazy world. So, yes, we live differently. I
admit it – we’re weird. It’s ok. I’ve come to terms with it. I don’t
take myself too seriously… how can I?
We choose to walk a different path than most, but we unplug not to make a

follow our convictions and live fully alive. And for us, really truly
living means desperately striving to unplug from the clutter of culture, consumerism, pop-culture, and media and truly tune in to God and each
I did spend many, many years studying Media Arts and Television
Production with hopes of a career in the field. Now, we live life
without a TV. A radio host once said my life was a ‘complete oxymoron’.
I laughed and in that moment – embraced the crazy truth. It is my passion to reveal the many lies we are told through
the Media and give parents, educators, and kids the tools they need to
become more Media-aware. But it is a far deeper passion that the souls of this world come to find and rejoice in the saving love and grace of Yeshua, Christ Jesus.
Big hugs and kisses from our family straight to yours.
