5 Van-Life Youtube Couples You Should Subscribe To

I know what you're thinking.. a girl from the suburbs who's used to having her own room, running water and a shower, wants to live in a van? Yep. Ever since I fell down the van-life trail, I've become obsessed with watching Youtube videos about their lives. Many of them are vegan [another bonus point for me!] and lived completely "normal" lives before ditching their homes for a camper van.

It's really hard to imagine what's like to live your entire life in a van. It may be a fun month-long journey, but 24/7, 365? I'm not sure if I'm realistically up for the challenge, but these van-life Youtubers really make me consider the move. In many ways, it seems sustainable for the future - less wasted space, no room for our useless things and a way to accomplish everyone's dream: to travel the world!

If you're a little crazy like me and want to obsess over these van life hippies, look no further than these five Youtubers.

1. Minimal Millenials

This married couple is young, ambitious and completely adorable to watch. They recently renovated their camper van into any teenage girl's bedroom dream filled with aesthetically pleasing artwork, marble accents, a white/tan color scheme and retro-style pillows. I appreciate this Youtube couple the most because of their realistic videos - they're not super rich people who decided to give this a go. They work on the road while traveling to some pretty amazing spots in the U.S., Mexico and Canada to visit friends, family and new places.

2. Eamon & Bec

You can't not follow up Minimal Millennials with Eamon & Bec. The two couples traveled to Mexico together a few months back! They're another example of vegan #couplegoals. They're originally from Canada and have their own chai tea company called Chaiwala Chai! Their van is extremely unique, yet work-able (as in, everything has a purpose). My favorite part of their van is the blender holder - smoothies are a necessity.

3. Max & Lee

​Yes, another van life couple (but with an insanely cute dog). Lee is from Canada and Max (and Occy) are from Australia. They've been traveling in their van for over a year, and they visit some pretty amazing places. They have multiple surfboards stored in the van along with the rest of their belongings. If you're looking for some travel inspo, this couple's channel is for you. If you haven't guessed it already, this couple is also great friends with the Minimal Millenials and Eamon & Bec. Some of their videos feature the couples traveling and hanging out.

4. Wandxr Bus

This couple definitely capitalizes on their good looks and hippy VW bus! They live on the road with two dogs (wow) in a much smaller space - the VW bus is tinier than other vans. They make a variety of videos on their channel, from vegan recipes to travel vlogs, combined with aesthetically-pleasing sunset views and total hippie vibes.

5. Sara & Alex

Being less than a year old, this channel has truly made an impact on the van-life community. Their informational (and design #goals) videos answer many tough questions about their lifestyle. I completely love their blue, white and wood color scheme - it fits their beach lifestyle. Above all, this couple runs a website and blog with web classes on how to travel and thrive in a van. They're a picture-perfect look at what van-life can be!

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

1131
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
