~Established in 2013~


We had dreams of living on land with animals, space, and a place to raise our family. Our prayers were answered, and we call our home

Roots Ranch.


  • November 1, 2013 – Closing Day

We found mold and other issues the day we closed on this house. Our renovation plans had to happen sooner than we had anticipated. We have journaled our renovation and brought our readers along on our journey.

Photography and stories of our Roots Ranch Renovation can be found here: http://capturingroots.com/blog/category/roots-ranch-renovation/    …0r under the Roots Ranch Renovation Category Tag on the Blog.



  • April 6, 2014 – We were able to move in and the hard work continued.


  • At our lowest part of this journey, we sat together in the hallway exhausted wanting to quit… wondering why we ever started this adventure. We were able to pull through with God’s strength. We have had to adjust our priorities and keep the right focus many times throughout this adventure. Praise be to God that this is not our forever home.
John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
Revelation 21: 1-4 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.


  • Thankful for this temporary home that God has given us while here on Earth, and we are making wonderful family memories along the way…
