Big announcement from the Young family! Take a look.


And that’s where the camera cut me off, right when I was starting to really get on a roll and wax philosophical about “stuff.” Turns out, the memory card on my digital camera was full and couldn’t record anymore video, a side effect of doing over a dozen takes of a two-minute clip. You’d think that with two kids, a full-time job, an entire house to pack and a Jim that I would have better things to do with my time, but, surprisingly, I don’t. Well, I probably do, but I was neglecting them in the pursuit of art.

But back to stuff: I really do enjoy passing on unused or rarely-used items. We sure can’t take it with us when we depart this life, that’s for sure. I want my life to be about embracing adventures, building friendships and deepening my faith in God, not about seeing how much crap I can lug around with me. Plus, downsizing is super trendy right now (Tiny House Nation, anyone?) and this is my big chance to be super hip. I don’t have a smart phone or an Instagram account, so I’m going all-in on this one. And I’m really looking forward to getting bunk beds! For the kids, of course, not me and Jim. We have an awesome king-sized bed, and Tiny House Nation can kiss it. We’re keeping that heavenly cloud of comfort.

Here’s an outtake. The toddler steals the show, but keep your eye on the baby near the end. It’s gross.


And another outtake. I can’t take myself seriously, and I don’t expect you to, either.


About Jolyn Young

I grew up in California, way up north near the Oregon border. My family raised commercial Herefords long enough to get me hooked on cowboying, for better or for worse, but not for prosperity. I met my husband, Jim, when we were working for neighboring ranches in North Fork, Nevada. We fell in love, got married and had a baby - kind of in that order. We now live on the O RO Ranch in northern Arizona, where Jim works as a cowboy and I take care of our two kids and write a blog and various freelance assignments. I love the Lord and credit Him with all my victories and accomplishments. More important than anything I accomplish or don't accomplish, though, is the eternal salvation of my soul that believing in Jesus promises me. Thanks for your time. Have a great day!
