FOTR - Families on the RoadZion

Meet Families Living the Dream

Come see what life on the road is really like for these families who are experiencing it first hand.

  • Some families are on the road fulltime because of their jobs. Be it in construction, entertainment, webdesign, health care, or work camping. Others have opted to leave suburbia behind and some have taken an early retirement.
  • Some have one child, others have four, or six or eight...
  • Some are on the road with babies, teens and all ages in between.
  • Some spend a day or two in one spot, others several months.
  • Some are single parents, others are multi-generational, others are the more tradional mom, dad and kid(s).

If your family is living on the road, you can be a part of the FOTR Family Pages.

Our unique community of traveling families

Paul and Chris Weaver have been married for nearly 25 yrs., are blessed with 8 children and reside in the NE GA mountains where they all work together in a small family business~when they're not traveling.

They instilled the love of music in the children at a young age. From the time they were little, they were taken around to sing for shut-ins, nursing homes & small groups~and it grew from there.

When Paul taught them to play instruments, it only added to the music resulting in the birth of the WEAVER BELIEVER. Since the children are homeschooled, it allows them the time & freedom to travel. They sing in tight family harmony & play guitars, banjos, mandolin, fiddle, acoustic bass & stand-up bass ~ joyfully using their God-given talents to bring honor & glory to the Lord.

Meet one family who is bringing their ministry to those who need it. Their current adventure involves ministry work as a new mission organization which they began in 2007 called (Believer's Bridge). As a result, they have committed themselves to bringing the truth of God's word to others.

We are a family of five that began our adventure in 2009. We have three kids and have no plans for ending our journey any time soon. We enjoy workamping and have found work in the electrical field. Finding work on the road can be challenging at times but with the right mindset and attitude many opportunities present themselves without even trying. We look forward to meeting other families on the road.

These families are no longer traveling fulltime for one reason or another.

There is still a wealth of information on their web sites and blogs.
