A home for us!

“I will bring them home to their own land from the places where they have been scattered.” Ezekiel 37:21 Friends, We found a home!  After 10 months of nomadic life, half of which involved extreme avoidance measures, and half of which we have seen miraculous healing through DNRS, we have our very own home. We lived in a LOT of […]

Home – Away – Home Again

In a chapel sermon on the Prodigal Son at Western Seminary a few years ago, Jeremy Begbie memorably and insightfully suggested that the most fundamental structure of any story (or song) is: Home – Away – Home Again. Home is the opening scene of the story where things seem settled, normal. Away introduces the conflict into the story, and generally […]

No home found tonight

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please go to this link to read how I have recovered my health using The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)!  Friends, We did not find a house tonight near San Luis Obispo or Atascadero. After filtering through many rentals, calling realtors, property managers, and landlords, we had hoped that one of these two might work, but they did not. It was a quiet drive back to the CIRS safe house tonight. Pray with us as we continue on our path. With hope, Mariah and Travis VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please go to this link to read how I have recovered my health using The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)!

Looking at more homes tonight

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please go to¬†this link¬†to read how I have recovered my health using The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)!¬† “…your Heavenly Father knows what you need…” Friends, We are heading out soon to look at two promising homes. They are both inland from the coast. One is in Atascadero. One is in San Luis Obispo. Both are on the outskirts of town. We would very much like a place to have as a home base for a while. The searching is exhausting, the houses that we have looked at have all been problematic, the realtors have been perplexed by my housing needs, but we trust that God is in the lead. Please pray for us. With Love, Mariah and Travis VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please go to¬†this link¬†to read how I have recovered my health using The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)!¬†

The Rentals We’ve Seen So Far

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please go to¬†this link¬†to read how I have recovered my health using The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)!¬† “A picture is worth a thousand words.”¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† The pictures above from the homes we have looked at so far in the Cambria area. We have yet to find an affordable home that does not have mold. Tomorrow we will look at one more rental in Cambria, and next week we will gird ourselves to call more realtors and look at more rentals on Craigslist in the surrounding area. Difficulty finding suitable housing in a suitable location is what families with biotoxin illness deal with on a daily basis. We walk with them on this journey and you walk with us on our journey. Thank you. VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please go to¬†this link¬†to read how I have recovered my health using The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)!¬† Your companionship and prayers are so very valuable to us. With love, Mariah and Travis VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please go to¬†this link¬†to read how I have recovered my health using The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)!¬† P.S. In the moments that we are not looking at moldy rentals, and when Travis is not working, we are getting outside in fresh air as much as possible, which is a huge part of my healing protocol. ¬† We are enjoying the natural world outside our back door.¬† There is much work ahead of us in […]
