Discomfort is certain. 

It is possible to get comfortable in the hardships  of the wilderness. 

We hope you never loose your sense of wonder, your curiosity, your zeal for the wild. It's when you know WHY you get out of bed each morning, the how and the what seem clearer. Life is not about performance and perfection but rather discovery and camaraderie. We are meant for so much more than comfort, security and pleasure. We are designed to thrive not just survive. 


Growth is a mindset: an attitude, a posture to be nurtured and cultivated. To regenerate you must meet challenge, discomfort and uncertainty head on. It's miraculous. Like photosynthesis, you reach up and out of the darkness of passivity to activate your engagement with the divine. The Spirit miraculously takes your many exhales of disappointment, frustration, anxiety, bitterness and infuses His grace, and His goodness to bring about your growth. He further gives you a glorious story of renewal to share with others. 

Entering wilderness experiences is the ideal place for this to transpire. Carefully designed outdoor adventure will help you to choose faith over fear and freedom over captivity. 

Braving the WHY'ld is a wilderness ministry to encourage you to "Know your WHY." Because if you know THIS, you can DARE to live it, BRAVELY!"
