In this week's episode, I talk to Beau Owen, a ministry worker at a Young Life camp. He shares his love for the outdoors and how it intersects with his faith. He discusses the importance of earning the right to be heard and building relationships with others. Beau also talks about his experiences in fly fishing, skiing, and trail running, and how these activities connect him with God. He suggests setting goals, doing research, and seeking out resources and communities that align with your interests. Beau shares his journey of going through a season of lack of direction and finding his purpose in ministry and the outdoors. He discusses the challenges of being a new believer and the importance of seeking mentorship and having grace for oneself. Beau also addresses the separation between Christianity and the outdoor industry and encourages Christians to bring their faith into that space. His advice for those in a season of lack of direction is to trust in God's timing and take a leap of faith.Follow Beau and his dawg Fish on instagramBeau Owen (@thebeauowen)Fish (@yourdawgfish) Support the Show.Follow this podcast and it's host on Instagram to stay up to date on the latest episodes @My Valley, His Victory @kenziefromkansasWould also love for you to subscribe on YouTube My Valley, His Victory or KenziefromKansas DISCLAIMER: Links included in this description might be affiliate links.

In this week's episode, I talk to Sarah Sanford, she shares her journey of living in a self-converted camper van and the challenges and blessings of van life. She discusses the process of building out the van and the freedom it provides, as well as the downsides such as limited space and lack of community. Sarah also talks about her love for outdoor recreation, particularly skiing and hiking. She shares a season of grief, and how she found purpose and faith in the midst of it. A little note from Sarah: Thanks for listening to a bit of my life and how God is so faithful! I would love to connect with you through IG @sanfordnsun or my website thesanfords.life for camper van info, about Codee and I, and photography. My prayer for listeners: I pray if you’re in a season of grieve that you feel seen, loved, and God fills you with hope. I pray if you’re in a season of loneliness that God would provide abundance of community. I pray if you’re craving connection to God that you are able to step outdoors for some fresh air and a nice warm hug from the sun. Hebrews 11:1 ”Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” All in His Faithful name, AmenSupport the Show.Follow this podcast and it's host on Instagram to stay up to date on the latest episodes @My Valley, His Victory @kenziefromkansasWould also love for you to subscribe on YouTube My Valley, His Victory or KenziefromKansas DISCLAIMER: Links included in this description might be affiliate links.
