Building Up Joy

In HIS Presence There is Fullness of JOY!

Building Up Joy... Wherever God Leads Us

Hey there, we’re the Bealers! We are traveling the country in our skoolie, seeking and finding all kinds of Wow God moments, and building up joy with those who we are blessed to meet on this journey! We’re not talking about happiness, which is totally circumstantial, we’re talking about joy… seeing God’s goodness in the highs, the lows, and everything in between.

Travel History

From a faith aspect we believe that it’s not about where we’ve been, it’s where we’re going that matters. We’re all sinners in need of saving, we all have broken pieces in our past that God can use for His glory, and we were all created to be in a relationship with our Creator. Our purpose here on earth is to continually grow closer to God, allowing Him to change us, and to help others do the same. This life is just temporary but eternity is forever, and where we’ll be spending it is what really matters.

When it comes to our travels, sharing about where we’ve been physically won’t have nearly the impact of our spiritual journey, but we hope it will give you inspiration and some cool suggestions for your own travels.
