27 Jan Converting and Living in a Skoolie – Meet a Skoolie Family
Strangers in Our House?
A few days before their arrival, a couple of our children started asking questions like: Are they living in a Skoolie? Are you going to let them in our house? Mom, are they going to eat with us? Do you realize they are strangers? The questions led to conversations about strangers and how could I let someone we didn’t know just park in our yard for 4 days, come in our house, and sit at our table and eat. “Mom! They are strangers and I have bad table manners! Are you sure you want to do this?”
As my excitement was building, Jeff and I assured our children that we would keep them safe. I was not rushing around trying to make the house perfect, or telling the children what to do and not to do. I was at peace. In my heart, I knew this was bigger than myself. The verse from Hebrew 13:2 kept coming to mind.
