The country-wide real estate and banking collapse of 2008 sent millions of American families into financial ruin. Many hung on for dear life, believing the market would correct itself within a year or two. By 2010, no correction was in sight. In My Year In A Yurt, author Jen McGeehan tells the true story of how she and hubby, Pat, filled a 40-foot Matson container, shipped their two vehicles, and, along with her twenty-nine year old equine and three-year old goat, flew the friendly skies in search of a simpler way of life. Their enormous debt of over $600,000.00 came as invisible baggage, as did the painful memory of handing their realtor the keys to their 3,000 square-foot home after three and a half years on the non-existent real estate market. As foreclosure and bankruptcy – additional unwanted travel companions – reared their ugly heads, Jen sent yet another urgent prayer to heaven asking for God’s divine intervention.
Jen McGeehan is a motivational speaker, sharing her often humorous, yet always inspiring stories of God’s miraculous healing and restoration. Her life-long love of animals began with the purchase of her first horse at the tender age of eight. As an accomplished equestrian and nature enthusiast, Jen was able to successfully transition from life in the fast lane of Southern California, to the off-grid, back-to-nature farm life of the Hamakua Coast of Hawaii.
