CTN 32: Traveling To Escape Reality

CTN 32: Traveling To Escape Reality

December 4, 2019

I was reading a facebook post and I had to stop and record this episode. I can relate to this lady who wants to get away from life and find purpose in travel, but is that what God wants? Can God use travel to refocus us? This week I dive into that subject and I hope you will come along for the ride.

October 9, 2019

If you are a traveler, there are often times when you find yourself dreaming of the next place you can live in. Whether its a short-term move or a more permanent one it's always nice to know that you have options.

Today I have decided to walk you through my process of what to look for in a city. I used to analyze my priorities in a city and give me the best selection. From there I use other resources to find out what the Christian community, top things to see & do, community organizations, and other attractions look like in that community.

If you want to jump ahead to a specific town I will be discussing, please jump to the following time selections:

Boise, Idaho (3:40)

Charleston, South Carolina (12:59)

Portland, Maine (17:41)

Madison, Wisconsin (22:30)

St. Louis, Missouri (27:05)

My rankings for them (32:14)

Proverbs 16:9 (33:43)
