Happy Birthday to Jesus!

Lindsie and Mike at ChristmastimeHey friends and family, we’re finally back with a new blog update! What inspired this return to the blog? The birth of our Savior, of course. We wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and we also thought we’d share a little news about what’s going on with us now that our journey is complete.

We’d like to start with a reminder of how blessed we are to have a Savior that our Heavenly Father sent down to earth for us. As we go about opening our presents, spending time with family, and probably eating too much delicious food, make sure you keep in mind that the little baby born in a manger would go on to give His life on the cross for our sins. The fact that God loves us that much is worth more than any presents we could unwrap or stockings we could unstuff.

We also wanted to let everyone know that we have officially gotten ourselves settled and situated in Springfield, Missouri (for at least the next 5 months). I, Mike, took a 6-month contract with an awesomely creative marketing agency in Springfield called deep group, and we’ll be figuring out our next steps from there.

Lindsie has enjoyed getting to spend a little time getting settled and doing things that people with a normal home do. She’s also working on getting certified as a medical coder, which will provide an opportunity for her to work from home part time, which we both think is a pretty good plan.

On a final note, we’ve officially started working on our book, which will both tell the story of our journey and also share with people the amazing things God did for us and through us spiritually as we traveled across the country. There’s still a long way to go, but we’re happy to be started, and we’re already enjoying the stories and adventures we’re reminiscing about while we write.

We’ll have more updates in the near future, especially now that we’ve gotten settled, so be on the lookout for an update from the Storming Jericho crew soon. Until then, we hope you have a blessed and very Merry Christmas!

-Mike, Lindsie, and Jaeda


  1. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Went to my heart doctor and he said I will eventually have to have open heart surgery. He went ahead and gave me the ok to do my walk in the spring. I am getting that finalized. He also said I start going back to the gym.

  2. If you need help in the book-wroting process, I’m happy to provide some advice based on experience. Look forward to reading it!
