Our Mission


We have a simple goal here at Creative Life Enterprises. We want to share useful content about the opportunities that exist for a freedom-based lifestyle. We want you to know you don’t have to be tied to a dead-end job. We’ll be sharing opporunities and information for you to unlock your own hopes and dreams and realize what your own Creative Life looks like. We offer our life as evidence that change is possible. We’ll be sharing inspirational stories, freedom business ideas, tips and tools that work for us, and interesting places we’ve visited.

Our Story

Once upon a time, we were in a dead-end life. In our mid-40s, an adult son and our pets. We had jobs that paid the bills but didn’t feed our souls. Despite the life-sucking jobs, we always wanted to do things our way, from using a midwife and having a home birth when expecting our son to homeschooling to various self-employment endeavors. We even handled a divorce in early 2011 our own way – by remarrying six months later. We never announced our reconciliation to anyone. Only our son knew we’d remarried.

It was during the six months we were apart that God completely changed us – separately and as a couple. He gave us this verse – Joel 2:25 – I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten. This verse has become ours as we’ve reunited and become the partners we were always meant to be but didn’t know how. It’s from this partnership that Creative Life Enterprises was born and has been (secretly) growing for just over a year.


One way to make sure a goal is met is to announce it to people around you. So we’re announcing our goals to our friends, family and the world. Our goals include the following:

  • Build freedom businesses and become completely self-employed
  • Save money
  • Pay off debt
  • Travel the U.S. and the world
  • Be generous to others, now and in the future
  • Use our talents, gifts and our story to inspire and help others

We’re counting on you to comment, share your stories with us, and follow along with us over the next two years as we declutter our house, save money, pay off debt, build our freedom businesses and buy a motorhome so that we can travel full-time.

Please let us know – what does YOUR Creative Life look like?

We’re living a wonderful, beautiful, abundant and creative life!
