Welcome to This is Home blog!

Our 2 year-old daughter was born in California, moved to Chicago when she was 9 months old, and moved to Costa Rica a few days before she turned 2. She has spent much of her young life living in hotels.
So what does she call home? It is not tied to a place, but to people. Home is with Papa and Mama. For our family, is wherever we happen to be at this moment.
But is “home” as simple as that? Or is it about something deeper? Something more complex than where we are, or who we are with?
In searching for answers to these questions, I realized that there are many people who might share them.
This is Home blog is a journey to find answers to these questions. Because I believe that if you and I can clearly define what home means to us, we will be prepared to live a more fruitful life.
So here we are on this journey.
Let’s work through these questions together and discover together what home means to each of us, so we can thrive.

Ben has spent his life searching for the meaning of “home”, having lived in Nigeria, Philadelphia, Florida, California, Chicago, Australia and Costa Rica.
He believes that “home” (whether you are a globetrotter, have lived in the same house your entire life, or don’t even have a place to call home) is something more than a location… and that clearly defining what “home” means to you is essential for a thriving life.
