Who are the heroes of this story?
This is the story of Joel and Sara - two humans who met in 2014 in Minneapolis, discovered a shared motivation for a different type of 9-to-5, and set off on the road in summer 2018 to discover the best of America and seek what "home" was calling to them, what radically different lives they could build.
Through the learning of Growing Home, they discovered shared goals as well as separate paths and possibilities. In fall 2019 they parted ways as a couple to seek what was calling to each of them as individuals.
This website chronicles their journey and reflections before, during, and after their trip: reflections on home, place, change, desire, loneliness, hope, hospitality, and more.
