A lifestyle of freedom for everyday families. Chasing dreams, creating memories.
We believe that nature and God’s creation is one of the best teachers. We believe that the outdoors is the best classroom.
We believe that it is never too late to chase your dreams. And we believe that it’s okay to cast societal norms to the side and do things that are “crazy.”
We moved to Alaska under assignment with the United States Coast Guard, and fell in love with the 49th state. The Coast Guard required us to move, but we knew that Alaska is where we belong. In the wilderness of the 49th state – chasing freedom, wild, and more family memories. So here we are leaving societal norms, taking risks, and embracing change and the unknown. And we are so glad you are following our journey!
Meet Ben & Sarah
Ben & Sarah run ExploreFam together. You can find them laughing their way through YouTube video productions, editing blog posts, experimenting with new ways to incorporate health and wellness into their family’s life, reading Magic Tree House books to the kids, and homeschooling. If they’re not at home, then you can pretty much assume that they are out with the kids in Alaska wilderness, learning from nature and taking video to share it with you!
Sarah also runs a business helping overwhelmed moms deal with stress and anxiety by creating systems to allow their family to live healthy, simple, and joyous lives. She’d love to have you along for the ride over at her website or you can follow her on Instagram.
Meet the Little Explorers
The Little Explorers keep life interesting. There is never a dull moment whether we are doing bedtime routines, hiking the Alaska hills, or homeschooling around the kitchen table. But they’re also our main inspiration. We want to provide them with the most holistically healthy family lifestyle…be it growing their own food in our vegetable garden, choosing scenery over screens, letting them pursue their own interests in our homeschool journey, and having a tight knit family dynamics. It’s never to early to teach these children about ways to care for our mind and bodies, and what better way to teach them than through nature!
This is ExploreFam. Where we learn, live, love, and explore together.
Join us as we pursue the unconventional. Where we strive to keep our families together as much as possible and teach our kids in all areas of life. You’ll find us exploring the Alaska wilderness as much as possible which is one of nature’s best teachers. And you’ll find us pursuing businesses, health, and schooling together as a family, training our kids that family are our best friends and we do hard things together. And as we pursue this as a family, we are sharing all of it with you! The things we’ve learned, the things we’d do again, the things we would NOT do again, and so much more.
