Join Couchsurfing to see Bethany’s full profile.
To fully experience this moment
We are both 42. Damien is a dentist and we are a homeschooling family with 5 children. We live outside of Gainesville, Fl in a doublewide mobile home in Jonesville. Bethany is obsessed with the small home society (which is almost humorous when you think about it). We are living "the great experiment" and we are hoping you will still want to surf with us in our smaller space. We have 10 acres, 2 horses, 2 dogs, 3 cats, 1 snake and a tank full of fish. It's peaceful here and we spend much of our time outside.
We live to serve each other and our community. We are very family centered and strive to take care of each-other, ourselves and our global family.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Right now we are up for hosting. One day we plan to start surfing!
We have not traveled very much since having children. We visited Honduras 2010 and stayed with friends there for a week or so- that was our first out of the country experience as a family. In 2017 we went to Ecuador! We plan to travel more in the coming years.
Learning, Outdoor anything (camping, hiking, biking, playing at the park), Swimming, Music (listening and playing), travel, relaxing together as a family.

Music, Movies, and Books
Bethany reads all the time- she has no standards when it comes to reading material- you can bet she's read most of the classics and most of the trash out there too. Damien thinks books are a good place to put his glasses before he falls asleep :) (wow! Edit time!!! Damien is now a reader!! He's making his way through some books and not even napping!)
Our family loves music and we make a little in our home when the mood strikes.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Damien says graduating from Dental School was a pretty amazing thing to do. But not as amazing as being there when each of his 5 children made their appearance in this world.
In 2009 Bethany joined the freebirth community and birthed her 4th child unassisted at home. Baby 5 was born 2011 unassisted.
Teach, Learn, Share
We like to learn anything! We love to share our love for the outdoors.
