Downsizing Our Home…Upsizing Our Family

June 30, 2014 · 7 comments

Well, today’s the big MOVE! The big yellow rental van will be here in about two hours, along with a group of friends. Last night my husband and I recorded our last podcast in the primo studio, and talked about what we’re doing, and why. Hopefully you’ll get that we’re very real people, with mistakes, plans, and hopes.  Thanks for listening!

Dear Dr. Tom, & Kerymae, Just listened to your last podcast in the big home. Thanks for the long update, it was informitive, & understand why your moving. WOW!!!. I hope & pray that you two can get enough money from Big home, & put it towards the small home. I hope you two will be able to afford to build another bathroom in the small home. like you said, it does have potential. If the Lord gives ya extra somehow, maybe you could build a extra room to the home, & put another bathroom in the house so that you have at least 3 bathrooms. In your future, & when the Lord provides, you can cont. to add a room or 2 for your kids. Just a thought. May the Lord cont. to help you all out in all your challenges.
( Dr. Tom, May the Lord cont. to boost & bless your Chiro. Bussiness. I hope to give ya another update about me & my chiropractic soon. )
Take it easy, & I trust the Lord will cont. to bless all of you.
Your sis. in Christ. Kris Kruger, Chino Hills Calif.
P.S.: Please pray for a “Mighty Rainstorm” for South Cal. this coming winter, ok? California needs lots of water to help our drought which is scary. Thanks.

Beautiful podcast! Loved every minute of hearing about your journey. Yours is a very counter cultural story and it is what a lot of the Western World needs to hear and see. To set ourselves free to live as God intends… Thank you so much for taking the time to share. It was a sacrifice, I am sure, but it will be used to minister to people – giving them courage to take steps to break the chains that bind them. Praying your move goes smoothly and that you will settle in so you can sweetly feather your nest. God bless you guys!

I loved hearing the story of your trial and error with building your mega house and the way God worked out providing a house (and resolution) for your family. I love listening to your podcast. I have no idea where you find the time, energy, or motivation to do all that you do – but I am grateful that you are able to share it.

Happy moving and may your new home be blessed with God’s love.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

Keri, I can so relate to this Podcast. My husband and I listened to it and we both smiled. It brought back so many memories. Although our home was not as large as yours, we downsized 21 years ago and we are so happy. What you are doing is counter-cultural but it will bring a peace that passeth ALL understanding. :)

I hope the move went well. We will be praying that you find just the right spot for the things you need!!! 😉

Many blessings,

Thank you for taking the time to record this podcast. It really spoke to my heart. Please don’t ever underestimate how God is using your story to make a difference.

Enjoyed this podcast very much. Really appreciated your transparency. Also, the part about how feeling peace about something does not always mean that it is the best thing to do. I have experienced this, too, and was glad to hear I was not alone.
