Roadschool Moms Latest Episode: You are More than Enough

Kimberly No Comments

Society tells each of us that we are not enough.  We aren’t thin enough, we aren’t pretty enough, we aren’t smart enough, we aren’t sexy enough, we aren’t good enough and we just want to share with you, that no matter where in the world you are tonight, physically and emotionally – that you are actually MORE than enough!

1st Peter 3:3-4 says “Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”

You can put lipstick and earrings on a pig but inwardly they’re still a pig so Peter writes that “the hidden person of the heart” is precious to God and the “imperishable beauty of a gentle and quite spirit” to God is “very precious” and that’s all that matters eternally.

You reading this post, You are beautiful, You are smart, You are perfect in every way. Don’t let society, friends, family, anyone tell you otherwise.  You are more than enough.  Listen in and take these words to heart.  Let them sink in deeply and change you.  http://ultimateradioshow.com/encouragement-for-all-women-you-are-more-than-enough/

Join the Roadschool Moms every Sunday night at 9pm est from “Wherever in the World You Are!”

5 Steps to Get Your Life Off Hold and On The Road

Kimberly No Comments

If you’re new to the idea of full-time RV traveling with your family, we understand you may not know where to start. In “How to Hit the Road” and “Our Journey Journal,” these detailed steps are outlined to help families set a foundation of success for their adventure. The Roadschool Moms duo gives an overview of the top five steps for getting your life off hold and on the road.

The Resource for Family's Seeking the Full-Time RV Lifestyle

Step 1 The Big Idea

Figuring out why this idea is attractive to you? What do you find appealing about full-time rv travel? What is your motivation for researching this lifestyle option? Once you have established that you are not in-fact running away from something (which doesn’t work) and have your priorities aligned you can move on to step 2.

Step 2 People Prepping

You may be the only one in your family who thinks full-time rving is a viable option. The second step is making sure every one’s to on board. Set aside some time to discuss this idea with your significant other and use this time to LISTEN to their thoughts about this transition. Before you bring this idea up to your extended family and friends, you may want to listen to our show on Dealing with NaySayers and Negative Nellies.

What will yours be filled with?

Step 3 Get Your Ducks in a Row

A. Stop buying things immediately. Start out with a personal commitment to not buy anything for one week. After that accomplishment, vow to not buy anything for two weeks, and then one month, and so on and so forth.
B. Start purging. Weeding out unnecessary, unused, and unwanted items is a never ending process in this lifestyle. Begin with small areas, such as a single drawer or a specific cabinet. It gets easier each time. The more items that are pared down now, the less that will have to be dealt with later.
C. Get out of debt. If you have debt, work hard to get out of it. We suggest Dave Ramsey’s FPU, a great program for families with debt.

Step 4 Set a date

The date motivates! Come up with a reasonable launch date and post it everywhere! This will give you an opportunity to take baby steps toward your goal in an intentional manner. A goal with no date is just a dream. A dream with a date becomes an inevitable reality.

Step 5 Come up with a money plan

Assess your current sources of income and determine if any can be modified to a location independent opportunity. If not, come up with location independent income stream. Several shows dedicated to this topic exist over in the Roadschool Moms archives. Mentoring services to families seeking the transition to a full-time rv lifestyle are now being offered by Kimberly Travaglino, owner of Fulltime Families. Together with Kimberly, you can come up with a lucrative independent income stream that can fuel the adventure of a lifetime. Kimberly only takes three clients in a season. If you are interested in more details, head over to fulltimefamilies.com/mentoring to complete the contact form.

We’re fast approaching the 100th anniversary of our National Park System in 2016!

The birthday of America’s Best Idea is cause for great celebration.  Our National Park system is a treasure that serves as the corner stone of our full time family adventure.

Touring national parks allows us to experience the amazing vistas, dramatic backdrops, and walk in the foot steps of our historic heros.

To celebrate this American Institution, the Roadschool Moms came up with a great idea!  We are dancing in National Parks this year and daring you to do the same!

It’s easy to get in on the fun!

Processed with Moldiv

#DareU2Dance

Take a quick video of your family dancing in National Parks (it can be any natural setting really, we’re not picky) and use the hashtag #dareu2dance.  Upload it to you Facebook and then dare others to dance by tagging them! Once you’ve been dared you have 7 days to upload your video and dare at least 3 others to do the same!

Anyone can do it, so get out there and get dancing!  Help us spread the movement from sea to shining sea and encourage families to explore America’s National Park System!

Get Your Dance Featured and Win the highly Coveted “I Dance in National Parks” Bumper Sticker!

After 100,000 dances have been uploaded, we’ll be making a Giant Flash Mob Dance Video!  If you’re video is chosen for this project, you’ll win a Limited Edition “I Danced” Bumper Sticker!I Dance In National Parks
