Summary

A modern, practical, and inspiring guide to creating deep heart connections with kids by regularly creating new experiences and intentional adventures together.

Parents today complain of fragmented relationships with their kids. What parents yearn for - and their kids too - is deep, heart-to-heart connections. But how can parents compete with all the other noise fighting for their kids' attention?

The answer, says Greta Eskridge, is to break free from regular routines and familiar comforts of home to experience new places and adventures - even if those adventures go awry. From simply reading a book together to going on an overnight backpacking trip, activities together provide unique and crucial bonding opportunities. Adventuring Together highlights Greta's stories of doing just that, including: 

  • an array of ideas for outdoor and indoor ventures,
  • what to do when your finances are limited,
  • and how to adventure if your family can't hit the hiking trail or spend the night at a campground.

Giving listeners the tools to make adventures happen, Adventuring Together is a step-by-step guide for parents - whether in the city or the country - to start building connections today that will last a lifetime.

Inspiring book filled with tools

What a great book. This has given me the boost I need to keep going, keep showing up, keep investing in my kids. It will pay off....Covid has given me time, time to adventure and reconnect with my kids. We have pursued hiking and finding bioluminescence partly due to Greta’s influence. We have loved it!!! This book reminded me of the importance for it to invest some more, weekly....

It is and will be worth it.

Today I read the last chapters and I must admit that I was in tears. Her conclusion chapter touched many of my heart strings. I won’t give it away, but the full circle idea was precious! Have never seen my adult life as a mother with that lens. My future and priorities have shifted. Thank you Greta for pointing out what matters most. What relationships I need to invest in!

I initially was disappointed that Greta didn’t narrate her book, but honestly I don’t know how she would have read the Conclusion chapter without getting emotional. But, I actually enjoyed this narrator. She did a very good job!

Highly recommend this book for anybody wanting to adventure. She gives practical ideas and hope of how to start just where you are!

A big warm adventuring hug!

I have been adventuring with my kids for a long time now, well, my husband and I were doing it before kids! That being said, this might not be what someone in that category would typically search for, a book like this, but they would be wrong! this book is layered with so much, much more than helping people trying to start adventuring. It has already brought tears to my eyes, astounding aha moments, laughs, reminders of growth in many ways,, and memories of my family's adventures. This book is like a big warm hug to all those that yearn for adventures in all forms, shapes and sizes!!!!

Inspired, encouraged and ready to go!

Because of this book, I have already started to adventure alone with my kids. We have always done adventure as a family, but I held back from going by myself. I see the value of this regular investment in our kids and in myself too. I can do things that scare me and push me out of my comfort zone. I'm looking forward to our regular adventures together.

So inspiring!

This book is super inspiring and will definitely give you the permission and courage to take a leap of faith and jump into adventuring with your kids. I like that she suggests stating small because I am the type of person that will have an idea and go big and then wonder why it didn’t work like I had expected. I also liked the ideas she added to help you get started. Greta is a real mom that isn’t perfect and I could really relate to her mistakes and honesty about them. She is able to be honest about life and also find lessons in those epic fails. I highly recommend this book and actually ordered more to share with friends!

Just not for me

I wish I would’ve researched this book more. It’s geared towards exploring with younger kids and is unfortunately not secular. Just wasn’t a good fit for me.

Enjoyable Read

As a mother who loves adventure with her kids, I find this book relatable in a lot of ways. It was funny and heartwarming. It is also a good read for those who dare to seek new adventure or just simply connect with your kids in a different way.
