My wife, our son, and myself have really enjoyed our home and welcome sharing it with others. I work full time and my wife has been able to stay at home to raise our son and care for our property. We enjoy our home church family, working outside, playing board games, video games, horseback riding (her), motorcycle riding (him) and travelling when we get a chance. We have used Airbnb on several occasions. Our experiences have always left us wanting to do it again.
