Hey Sister! Why Camping is Good for You {& Some Tips & Tricks} with Erik Gilbert


Summer is the perfect time to break out the fishing poles, pop the tent, and hit the trails.  It’s a chance to put the electronics away and open ourselves up to good conversation and creative thinking.  For the first time in Open Door history, Krista’s husband, Erik, an avid outdoorsman, joins her to talk about camping, backpacking, and mountain climbing.

If you are wanting more connection with your family, if you are tired of feeling pulled apart or distracted by the pace of modern life, or if you want to break through barriers in a relationship with someone close, this may be one way to do that.

Join in the conversation and be inspired to plan your next adventure in the outdoors!
