Passion to Action - review

As much as we love to travel and go camping with our travel-trailer, we've often wondered what it would be like to be "full-timers." We think we would like living on the road, traveling around all the time. So far God hasn't called us to that kind of lifestyle. Maybe He will some day! In the meantime, we try to be content with the occasional road trip.

But that's exactly what God called the Loecken family to do a few years ago. I was very intigued to read their story in Passion to Action. Here's a little bit about the book:
Jay and Beth Loecken were an ordinary family searching for meaning in their lives. They seemed to have all they needed in life, yet something kept pulling at them—a stirring, a sense that they were being called to a greater purpose in life.

After coming home from a mission trip to Africa, the Loecken family returned to their comfortable lifestyle, but they all knew they wanted something more. In April of 2008, the family made the daring decision to sell their home, purchase an RV, and begin traveling the country serving communities in need.

In Passion to Action, the Loeckens share the remarkable story of how their life was turned upside down and fulfilled them more than they ever thought possible. It will inspire readers to discover their own passions and put them into action.
 I was interested to learn more about the logistics of family life in such a small space, and the things they learned the first few months on the road. I was inspired to read about the various ministries they have helped, and the reactions of people along the way. Even if we never end up traveling full time, I was encouraged to reach out to those around me here at home.

Thank you to B&B Media Group for providing me with a review copy.
