6 Tips for Taking Great Photos

In the past 5 years, I've traveled to over 30 countries, which has brought a constant opportunity to practice photography in unique settings. What started out as an attempt to document our journey as a family keepsake, has become an engaging and artful hobby that I love to indulge in. Having taken tens of thousands of photos, I can see how my skill has improved with time. And whi... Read More

To all the Mormons – I’m Sorry

It's hard to know what to say when starting an apology. But I'm feeling a kind of tugging sorrow in my heart for the pain I've caused my LDS family and friends, and likely many others I've never met. If you feel you've been affected negatively by something I've written, said, or done over the years, then please accept my sincere apology. This post is for you. When I chose to leave the church, I... Read More

Living Your Life Purpose

"It’s messing people up, this social pressure to 'find your passion' and 'know what it is you want to do'. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it... Read More

Fun with Music

We've really enjoyed having a couple months to settle here in Victoria, BC. One thing we've all appreciated having more time for is music. The day after we arrived, I rented a piano keyboard from a local music store, and finished putting out recordings of some new pieces I started writing back in Bali. These involve piano, as well as my voice, and other ambient sounds. Have a listen below, or... Read More

First Timers in France, Continued

After all the amazingness we experienced during the first part of our time in France, we were certainly looking forward to a bit of integration and downtime, and our next two destinations provided the perfect opportunities! Provence ... Read More

First Timers in France, Part One

We’ve been looking forward to visiting France for quite a while, but we’ve also been a bit nervous, mostly because of our lack of knowledge with the language, and we also hoped the people would be friendly. As it turns out, we’ve never felt so welcomed in a new country before! We find itinerary planning to be very chal... Read More

Valencia to San Sebastian

Continuing our journey through Spain, we arrived in Valencia, where we were met with red wine, cured ham, and cheese, courtesy of Lorenzo, the owner of the apartment we were renting. Shortly after that, the girls from the Clark family showed up to share the apartment with us, and we all went out to dinner that night f... Read More

My Journey with Ayahuasca

Over my birthday this year, while the family was in Ronda, Spain, I took a train to Madrid for a 3-day retreat where an Amazonian plant mixture called ayahuasca was used to facilitate gre... Read More

Adventures in Andalucía

We were so impressed by our visit to Barcelona last year, that within seven months we found ourselves back in Spain once again, this time beginning in the southern part. Brandon gave Emily some fun new trip planning and navigating responsibilities as well. Since we planned to stay a night in Bangkok to break up the journey, he put Emily in charge of working out the... Read More

Menjangan Island, Bali

Just off the Northwest coast of Bali, Indonesia lies Menjangan island. Surrounded by clear water, colorful coral, and incredible numbers of fish, it's a spot we've been wanting to visit for some time. So we invited our friends, Brian and Scottie and their 5 year old son, and spent a few days there together. Well, actually the island is uninhabited, except for some monks. But there are seve...
