When I was about six years old, my parents decided to leave the life we had known here in North Carolina and head out onto the mission field. Overnight, I went from a typical American kid to a young boy in a foreign land who could only marginally speak the language and knew none of the customs. 

My parents knew we would have to depend on the kindness of others to make it. But they also knew it was what they were supposed to be doing at that time. It was their purpose and nothing was going to deter them from their mission. They stepped out in faith.

It takes a lot of courage to step out in faith. Perhaps that’s why it’s an action that is so highly revered in our society. To leave the nest, change careers or even sacrifice your own security for the betterment of others are things that not everyone has the fortitude to do.

Mike Anderson, Jay Howard and Beth Troutman are prime examples of what it means to believe in yourself enough to step out and do what it is you feel you were meant to to do. We share their stories. We also provide some useful information on what should be thought about financially before making a radical life change, whatever the circumstances.

We hope these stories will inspire you to follow your dreams or, at the very least, to quote the late Casey Kasem, ‘Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.’

Best Regards,

Jason Huddle
