Let’s Get It Started

Updated: Apr 24, 2019

Hello Everyone,

Jackie and Sidney, the Adventurous Dynamic Duo. We would like to share with you how we started an adventurous fun-filled life. Get yourself a “Bucket-List.” We did, and this is how it all happened.  

We were on our second date, a day at the lake. First, of course, we had an awesome lunch together, then we headed to the lake. While sitting there getting to know each other better, we were mesmerized by the tranquil bluest-green body of water, right in front of us. It was just what we needed to get our brains to open up and explore.  We started sharing places we had both gone and how we are both in a place in our lives, where we want to live life to the fullest. As we shared our stories, we realized we had a lot in common. We went on to start calling out places we both wanted to go and activities we would love to experience. Sidney, the easy going romantic guy, says, “let’s start a bucket-list.” Jackie, the published author, pulls out her iPhone and commence to start typing a list, right then and there.  Our bucket list isn't your typical bucket list, where it captures places and experiences to see and or do, before we die. Ours is a list that captures things we want to experience so that we are living an intentional life, full of fun, charting unknown places, facing our fears, and seeing God's miracles at work. For example, experiencing one of God’s great wonders (the Grand Canyon) and/or going to a Prayer and Praise Conference.  Here is a snapshot of our Bucket-List

You can see our list is all over the place. As we complete various activities and trips, we check them off, but we don't remove them; this way, we can see our accomplishments. We, also, continually add to our list. Man alive, living life intentional, is so much fun!

It doesn’t matter if you are a millennial, mid-age, or a seasoned senior citizen. Having a bucket list is a must - have. When we created our list, we didn’t know if or how the activity would happen, or how we would afford it; but we trusted God.

The Bible says, "Write it down and make it plain." Praise His Holy Name! He is making it happen for us. The book, “More of You God” on January 6, reads, “Father impart Your wisdom and guide me on this adventure.” “I want to ride with you Lord.”

The Adventurous Dynamic Dual is riding with the God of Gods and the Lord of Lords. He owns it all; there is nothing impossible for our God.


1. Do not limit yourself with your list.

2. If both people haven’t experienced an activity, put it on the list. It’s ALL about the experience of sharing it together.

3. Remember, one trip can include many activities off of your list. You can always add or subtract from your list.

4. Try to find great deals to make it fun, so it doesn’t overwhelm you financially.

5. Share with others, let’s all have fun.

6. After you complete an activity, check it, but do not remove it. It’s exciting to see how you have evolved into an adventurous life.

7. Put God first in your life, HE will give you life more abundantly.

Alright, until next time...Glad you stopped in on the journey. More fun and adventures to come.

Please share with us your activities, so we can possibly add to our bucket list what you're planning to do on our list too.

Adventurous Dynamic Dual,

Jackie & Sidney
