The VonNeiderhausern family consists of Rachel the mother, Steve the father and six children ages 14 – 4 months. Steve and Rachel have a very powerful way of living – on purpose. They say that sometimes it feels a little weird to buck the cultural norms of not owning a house and putting down roots, but instead of using their money to buy cars and a house and eating out regularly, as much of America does, Steve bikes to work, Rachel bargain shops, they rent a basement in a home in a good neighborhood, and they homeschool their kids.
They then turn around and put all their money into a project called Family Humanitarian where they travel to Africa and South America to help the poor across the world by helping them create better living conditions. This they do with all their kids in tow. Tune in for their story and thoughts on the wealth and poverty matrix.
Random Acts of Kindness are a thing. There are groups, websites, and people who rally others to get out and focus on acts of kindness and the creation of goodness and service on purpose. It’s a life story tool for creating good things in your story. I am one of those who has served as a herald to help rally others into the RAK movement. I created groups and get-togethers for people who want to use this life story tool for bringing some good into the world. During two of these meet-ups, I interviewed the people involved so we could get a real BOOTS ON THE GROUND retelling of what it was like. Hopefully, you’ll find some inspiration from their stories. The cover photo is a group in Ohio that I was a part of. We made a sign saying we were giving away free hugs and we stood in a shopping center for an hour. The guy in the middle is one of the people we hugged, a man who wanted a picture with us to remember others reaching out to him. Tune in to today’s podcast for interviews with those who were in the RAK groups. It may be a little surprising because it turns out that doing Random Acts of Kindness is an inside job. See first hand the resistance we encountered.
