Keen to make your church relevant to Millennials? Then put this book down immediately. Vagabonding: In Defense and Praise of Millennial Faith is not that book. If, instead, you are interested in forging meaningful relationships and building the future church alongside the Millennial generation, come on in. Learn how the patterns of communication, social justice, missiology, and faith popping up with Millennials echo patterns of the early church disciples. Through this text, we’ll explore the ways in which the institutional church and Millennials can learn a great deal from each other, and enter into those relationships on a central creed of Christianity: Fear not!
With her signature wit, AK Turner deftly slays all the dragons separating "life with kids" from "life with travel and adventure." Determined to prove that long-term travel need not be reserved for the lone male traveler, Turner tackles obstacles including working while traveling, affording an extended trip, pulling kids out of school, and what to do with them once you've done so. With stories from the author's experiences in a dozen locations around the globe, and the honest and hilarious admissions of her fears along the way, Vagabonding with Kids is a timely affirmation of why we should all journey forth.
Don't forget the bear spray. This is foremost in AK Turner's mind as she travels with her husband and two daughters north through Canada, along the Alaska Marine Highway, and ultimately to a tiny, roadless island, accessible only by boat from the nearby town of Sitka. The foursome adapts to island life, where their neighbors are few humans and thousands of giant slugs. With adventures in hot-springs hunting, fishing (kill the fish before filleting), and hiking on rain-forested volcanic islands, Vagabonding with Kids: Alaska provides raucous insight into life on the Alexander Archipelago.
Summary: The Turners are on the road again in a raucous continuation of the Vagabonding with Kids series, exploring Brazil from the Amazon rain forest to Rio's famed Copacabana Beach. But this time the in-laws are along for the ride, and three generations have to survive close quarters, radioactive beaches, and jungle hammocks for accommodations. Armed with little knowledge of Portuguese, but a great appreciation for the Brazilian national drink, the nomadic family finds adventure (and laughter) at every turn.
Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Vagabonding is about gaining the courage to loosen your grip on the so-called certainties of this world. It is about refusing to exile travel to some other, seemingly more appropriate, time of your life. It is about taking control of your circumstances instead of passively waiting for them to decide your fate. #2 Earning your freedom to travel is a personal investment that demands the realignment of self. Work is not just an activity that generates funds and creates desire; it’s the vagabonding gestation period, during which you earn your integrity and start making plans. #3 There are countless ways to earn your travels. On the road, I have met vagabonders of all ages, from all backgrounds and walks of life. Some don’t even maintain a steady job description, taking short-term work only as it serves to fund their travels and their passions. #4 The first step of vagabonding is to make work serve your interests, instead of the other way around. To do this, you must quit your job to go vagabonding. This should never be seen as the end of something unpleasant. It’s a vital step in beginning something new and wonderful.

This term derived from Latin is rather connoted; in the collective unconscious, it evokes the homeless, poverty and the absence of rules. Yet it has a positive meaning that has been alienated from it. It suggests the fact of travelling in the absence of a precise destination, according to one's inspirations, with calm, freedom and strength. For travel does not only shape youth: it is one of the factors of self-discovery at any age. "Vagabonder" is thus also a vector of knowledge. It is a way of looking at travel in a more authentic way, far from the marked paths of mass tourism. *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!
